    How about we give Final Fantasy VII a rest for now and talk about something different?

    Best Final Fantasy character in my opinion would be Balthier from Final Fantasy XII because he has a great personality, decent in battle, and he is "The leading man"

    I actually hold no love for Balthier...he was the only character I didn't play with. I just didn't like him really.

    I haven't really been able to stand a Final Fantasy since VII :/

    Not to say 9 and 10 didn't have their share of goody-ness, but FFVIII was terrible, and I laughed so hard at FFXII's cutscenes the only further I got was taking Vaan out into the desert >.>

    My favorite character would have to be the one that is my pic ^^ Locke Cole was probably one of my favorite characters of Final Fantasy, with Mog from FFVI and Aerith coming in a close second and third respectively

    8 was the best.

    Can't say there is a greatest FF char. There's so many and their all cool in their different ways.

    I didnt actually play 8 and 9, but saw my friend who is a very old fan of the series play it. Cant say that I liked the game much, perhaps cuz of graphics and cuz I didnt understand the cards game lol. Anyway, When I bought my new computer, I've installed the PS2 emulator and got the game to play with an awesome frame rate on my PC. So I played FFX and FFX-2, and I pretty much liked them. Cant say that the characters in 10 are less interesting than in the prequals. Story is practically all the same in all of em'.. just presented in another manner.

    I cant say that I loved FF as a game that much.. I'm not a big fan of it either, but yea I played it, didnt finish it though.. got pretty far however. Why? was it that bad? If I dont like the game I usually dont even start playing it.. I can just say that for me FF was average. maybe cuz I didnt play myself the other FFs.. so I dont have much experience in it :p

    It wasn't the gameplay as such that was destructive....it was the whole atmosphere and theme. It was just some girly j-pop crap, and that really got to me.

    They also killed some crucial things, such as summons, and the subsitute for limit breaks kinda sucked....especially Paine's...wtf was that thing :S

    Anyway, matter is, no really good characters in X-2

    It's so hard to choose one character. My favourites are:

    Cid Highwind - he's a grumpy git - like me, he's funny and he has some cool attacks and he does it all without losing his ciggarette - well until the end anyway.

    Vivi - He may be small and weak but he has some awesome magic and when he gets mad and goes into trance his hat stands on end, which amuses me no end - well small things please small minds.

    Balthier - he's cool and suave, he has some cool lines and he's handy with a gun too
