    Most Ignored Final Fantasy

    Why does everyone skip over this game when referring to Final Fantasy? Sure, it borrowed a lot of stuff from other Final Fantasy's, but it's still unique enough to be its own game. Every character goes through development on the journey. The bad guy actually kills the party (though he does revive them afterward). This game has several great aspects that don't deserve to be ignored.

    FFIX? Ignored? Never heard it referred to as such.

    The only time I can think of it being close to "ignored" was when the first Kingdom Hearts had characters from all the Sony generation games but that one.

    Thanks Neg for the banner!!

    FF2 seems to be the most ignored to me.
    I wholeheartedly apologise for any of the posts I made on this site between 12 and 19. I genuinely enjoyed so much of it, but I look back and realise that I was such an ass.

    I don't know. You really don't here much about FF V. FF IX was my favourite one out of them all, and all my mates had it. Definetely not the most ignored.

    I would have to agree with that-- I recently heard FFV described as the "black sheep" of the series due to the high level of difficulty it's said to have.

    Some people were introduced do Final Fantasy through VII and VIII, and were probably expecting IX to be a teenage melodrama of some kind. Pretty ironic how it felt weird for them seeing something more fantasy-like in a game called Final Fantasy.

    Personally I love 9 and I don't understand how anyone could ignore it. I've always loved them but I guess I may just be into the Final Fantasy's that don't have a horrid fan boy base like 7. Bleck. What happened to the good old days where gamers were actual people who were cool and now everyone just makes them into comic-con side shows who only love one game out of a giant game series?

    Most ignored? Nah, I don't really think it is. But, remember, this game fell right in-between the hugely popular FF8, and the highly anticipated FF10, which definitely did not help it.

    FF X was brilliant. Well, I think so anyway. Let's Blitz!

    So true.
    I played IX once, sold it for $40 to my neighbor within five minutes of beating it. So I didn't ignore it, I sold it to my neighbor at a profit of $30. =D

    I still didn't like it, just felt I had to beat it.

    It is my personal favorite in the series. I liked the innovation of it yet with some of the old elements of the previous titles mixed in with it to deliver an interesting package. My taste doesn''t really vary. It is just there and I like what I like, though not in an infatuated way.

    It's definitely not ignored in these forums! I think IX has to be the general favourite around here. But I don't find IX the one that is ignored very much - perhaps anything earlier than VI?

    I don't know about that, as they have already re-made FF 1, 2, 3 and 4 with 5 and 6 on its way, and most people have gooten back into them.

    I have to agree that 2 is the most ignored, with 5 probably being runner-up in that category.

    Allen likes it, but I've never seen anyone else who has. Choosing to not initially port it was probably the best decision ever made regarding it.

    I mean, kudos for trying to innovate, but still, any system that lets you get 9999HP before leaving the first town is broken beyond belief.

    I guess that means FFVIII is broken beyond belief, eh? What with the beating the Diablos Guardian Force then using him to draw Curaga's and junction them to your HP stat and all? (or something to that effect, it's been about a year since I last played.)

    Sorry, but I don't accept PSN friend requests from people I don't know too well so if you send me one, I'm going to refuse it.

    I've never played it. I would like to at least be able to read a script for it online, but there doesn't seem to be one available.

    You really aren't missing a super lot, Agent. If you really want, you can have my copy of Origins.

    FF Origins. You can't have Travis or Wolverine
