    I know, everybody I know says that VII is the best but I am a huge fan of VIII. I like being a mercenary, I like getting 30,000 gil every fifteen minutes, I like busting somebody with the Lionheart limit break. Does anybody agree? I just like the fact that you start as mercenaries and get to go on a couple missions before you get deep in the story. I think VII chucks you into it too quickly. And, the Gunblades are the coolest weapons. So, if you agree or disagree, say something.

    This may offend some people, but Odin is better in VIII than in VII

    It wasn't bad. As you said being paid and all. But the whole love story was too icky.

    I think it was cool but uh as my user name suggests i am a final fantasy fan and well i think the whole lot are good.

    The only problem i found was tha i couldn't get my seeD level above level 3 and every time it went up it went down again strait away.

    Yeah, I was sick of mine being really low so I just got the player's guide (yeah, I am cheap and admit it) and it has all the answers to the tests. I now fluctuate between 30, and A rank. It is cool, except that on disk 4, you can't spend any of it.

    X wasn't boring. I found it the most interesting actually. The storyline was really cool and the clash between using machine and not using machines. It reminds me of the Star Wars series The New Jedi Order. And the fact that Sin is a price to pay for using all that technology. Its more realistic.

    Plus 10 had the whole Asian feel to it which was great. 7-9 were all european really. The Asain feel was great because it added something the others didnt have.

    And the start song was great. The rock/metal song when Sin attacked Zanarkned,

    I did like the love song, the one where Squall and Rinoa are in the Ragnarok, and she is sitting in his lap, that was a cool song.

    Yeah but 7 is still the best. There is so much 7 doesnt really tell you and everytime you play it you find out something new and it is a great storyline. 8 was ok and the graphics (for the time) were better but I didnt like the whole thing were your other team mates follwed. 9 was good but I think it was a bit too similiar to number 7. 10 was awesome, Blitzball rules and the whole world map being changed is great.

    7 and 10 are the best IMO
    As Doyler said 7 is just full of surprises and 10 was a revolution for FF

    FF 8 was the first FF i had ever played. after playing other FF's i thought that FF 8 was the best, but after playing several FF's i realised their all Gr8. the only FF that i think i found a bit on the naf side was 10. mainly because of the ending sequence was boring (the speech), and also the element of FF being "time based" with the atb gauge was lost, as it became more turn based, so the speed of a character was not fully utalised, but apart fromt hat it had the best intro iv'e ever seen, and the use of speech is Gr8.

    Oh come on, no one can deny that FF8 was not the best FF game, the weapons, magic, everything tuned to near perfection!
