    Ugh, Final Fantasy's went downhill since six to the smart few who've noticed. [Seven to all the fangasmers.] Six was the last good one and thats where it SHOULD have ended. Either way, I really doubt FF will end. Always quite a few diehard fans out there lol. So I say never 7_7;.

    No, I am not saying FFs aren't bad, because I loved FF IX & X alot but VI was the last good one.

    So, you're saying any people thinking the series is still just a good or as bad as it always was isn't smart?

    What kind of narrow thinking is that?

    Might be fun to see how this one will react.

    I thought I was being soft there with the bait, by not relying on insults right away. But you didn't even notice it.

    Pac-man's been out for 28 yrs and still hasn't died, so it's possible that Final Fantasy may have the same long run, or they could remake earlier releases into more visually aesthetic games. I mean FFVIII was when they started to insert the life-like movies, but by today's standards, it's nothing short of being low quality.

    So it's either they keep on making sequels, or remake the other series, or just do both. In any case Final Fantasy is going to be around for a looong time.

    I for 1 think that since Final Fantasy has been around for 20 years, It will be high time for it to leave anytime soon. Plus, rumors are circulating that the original developers/creators are quitting. I think ppl are getting tired of RPG's (Well, Im not but others are!)

    Well I'm not sure if I agree with the first part of that statement as I am reasonably sure that most of the original developers/creators left some time ago. But there certainly is an argument to be made that people are much less wiling to play RPGs than they were say ten years ago. Sure there are still the hardcore who play regardless and they will always be catered for by specialist firms like Idea Factory or Nippon Ichi. A lot of the people who were introduced to RPGs by the Playstation and FFVII are now in their twenties and thirties and their lives have changed with work and family commitments and they do not have the time to play 60-80 hours anymore. So no I do not think Final Fantasy as a brand will end anytime soon but the games as we know them now will be all but unrecognisable in the future as they evolve to meet the demands of the audience with the introduction of more mobile games or games that are easier to play in small chunks. You never know something like X-2 could be the future of Final Fantasy due to it's mission based chapter structure that can be played for an hour saved as opposed to XII where you could quite easily go several hours between saves.

    Well fair enough VI is definatly one of the best of them but why should they have stopped there? After making millions they were hardly going to say, "God we'll never make a game that good again, lets just leave things and stop making loads of money."


    Big thanks to Maria for this great sig!

    The beauty of FF, is that each game is different. It has it's own story and world, unique from the other ones. Even though the combat and gameplay may be similar there all only spiritual sequels, and never directly linked. Except for the exceptions like FFX, FFX-2.

    FF13 and FF13 Agito and FF13 Versus will all take place in the same world, but from different perspectives. Plus I hear FF13 Versus will play much like KH. So even more innovation is meeting Square's successful series.

    the squares have been so successful ever since they got FF as their "line of gold"...
    do you really think that they are just going to cut their "line of gold" in half by stop making more FF?
    i think bonker if they did.

    Maybe, But Think about FFXIII's plot It is based from similar factors as the First 3 Final Fantasies. 1). There is Crystalls, 1.5). Crystalls rule the world, 2). There is a floating city, seperated from a scarred world. I think the "LINE of GOLD is thinning out.

    FinalFantasy ended when its creator left squaresoft , (2003) that led to the merging , and the founding of Enix Square .
    I call it Enix Square because the marketing has focused on remaking FF games and not dragon quest titles. (compare DQ remakes and FFremakes after the merging)
    Even Nobuo Uematsu agrees that they should not have continued making final fantasy without Sakaguchi .
    It's the same thing with the WORMS series of games, so Final Fantasy ended with X-2 and XI to me, but really, it ended in FFX since that was when all of the original dream team worked for a final fantasy. (FFX-2 had 1/3 of the team)

    Final Fantasy 12 used and promoted the "themes" of ff such as moogles, chocobos, and of course crystals.

    However ff12 was a totally different game , not a bad game, just not a final fantasy. I've played all the FFs and from 1 to 11 it had that magic that you can't explain.
    It's no use citing factors and technical words to explain why ff12 failed to be a ff.

    However I know that many people liked it so I will try to have some facts on why I believe that.

    Final Fantasy 12 had great artists involved, the ex Quest members dream team that used to be in Enix and gave them successful games.
    Did you seriously stick to the characters of the game, and felt their sorrow and joy on this installment ?

    Final Fantasy used to be story , music, character development. It was like watching a movie , in a good way of course.

    I don't want to have a stiff war story for a romantic game such as FF.
    For example ff7 was deep and dark but it still had love in it, the theme was life. What's the theme of FF12?

    I'm not saying that we should have the same people making FF all the time, but hell, there must be at least the concept creator that made the games for the past 20 years!

    Just like dragon quest, the original team is three people.
    Final Fantasy should change over time, but only with Sakaguchi's hand.

    Now that he's gone FF ended, you can take the Gooch out of FF, but not the FF out of the Gooch .

    i do get what your saying, i am a newbie to the whole ff thing, it was only when i was starting a new school when my friend showed me his new games, i borrowed them and i had never ever seen a game that looked better, nor a story that was more engaging then ffx, it was brillent, so much better then anything i had ever played. it is trully one of my all time favorite games, so what the battle system in places is difficult to live with and the charectors faces changed from seeing every detail to a smudgy blur, it was trully brillent, you felt every emotion in the game and i could write all day about it but when ffx2 came out, yes it wasnt as good story as its predessesor but it still was better then most r.p.gs, then ff12 came and that was not good in the slightest, squre enix obviously used the game as a last hurrah before the big move to ps3, it was crap, the story didnt add up, the charectors were baqdly thought out, i would have rather played on london racer 2 then on that, the magic was dead and in my opinion square enix need to put every last reasource into making a ffx3 because that i would buy then end this incredible trilogy of games and admire the great legacy they have carved out

    It's good that you agree with me and I do see many people doing the same.
    Sakaguchi had a special talent, the talent of making Final Fantasy games and movies. (The Spirits Within was a great movie but was released in a bad time and media for its audience)

    He still makes games but I doubt he will ever make a FF7/FF10 quality game again since he left Squaresoft and his fellow colleagues.

    I would prefer to have Final Fantasy officially end in FFX , than to see it drag and decay over the years, with Enix Square's commercial tormenting of the franchise's name.

    P.S. If you want to see Nobuo Uematsu saying that "they shouldn't make final fantasy after Sakaguchi left" go here

    I would have to say I agree with kinslayer6. Final Fantasy has lost its magic. FF12 was fun and different but it didn't feel like a final fantasy. Depending on what ff13 is like it may be my last true FF. It looks like it'll be good and regain some ffism. So we'll see. As for X-2 I thought the game was pretty fun, I liked it. Learning all the class abilities is a little tedious but I still play it, on my 4th time through. I hated the lack of summons (of course there couldn't be cuz ya killed them in X) and no weapons, ultimate weapons are just too classic to get rid of.

    Edit: stupid typo's
