    As a Final Fantasy Fan i must say that there are alot of different characters but i don't really think its good to change them and they should have related them or something it seems a shame really it doesn't seem final fantasy anymore yeah there are the basic rules like magic and things but its not really final fantasy anymore.

    #What do you think?

    Well, it's still selling, and after a while, character development tends to get a bit harder if you have the same characters. I find it neat how they are able to come up with such submersive story-lines, and continue to have great characters to go with it. The only real complaints I have heard are the combat systems, or the item systems.

    FF X-2 and FF-11 are going to be totally different. I heard they are using the same fighting style as Kingdom Hearts. It was cool and all but not FF

    I miss the simpler FF on Nintendo and PC. I was hoping that they'd offer it on PC

    I don't care as much for the online play idea (for FF, that is) I like to play it when I want, where I want...

    but ff11 has a storyline in which you and a group of friends are meant to help each other beat the game. Its aimed at people wanting play some sort in an FF world.

    True but it still strays from the Final Fantasy touch.

    i aint seen ff11 yet but i heard its bad..... ffx and ffx2 are alot diferent from what is really ff i mean no real word map, the battle system on x i like but x2 is really confusing at first and the story seems to be abit lacking and although the games are long the stories dont seem to be like in FF9 (BTW FF( is my best).... i liked the fact that it was like medieval and no guns or out

    yeah and u couldnt fly the airship. That Sucked. They should re-make FF7 in FF10 style as in better graphics and stuff but keep the world map thing although 10's was cool the way it was done but lacked longness to reach a point.

    they should allow you to wander the map in FF10....and add quite a few more sidequests to get extra stuff....although i can't of anything at the moment...and more secret bosses!

    more side quests for ff10? only if they cut down the amount of blitz ball! i spent 120 hours on that game. and 50 of them was playing blitz ball to get wakkas great weapon. the only thing so good about his weapon was breaking damage limit. the ball i used before that had death touch on it and only failed against things immune to death, even then it still hit for 9999.

    ff2 was a final fantasy game. that was obvious. the battle system was final fantasy like. the dress fears however were not. the story line(if you can call it a story) was crap and not final fantasy like. 11, i hate mmo's. 12 looks like it could be good. square needs to step things up a notch and live up to their name. lately they just havent been producing

    Mognet isn't daft at all.......in fact,it was a very nice break to boring old spheres and atoms in FF7 and 8 to use at save points.Moogles are at least CUTE.....and mognet is interesting,too.And Mognet is a side quest-a way to get some useful items

    there are loads of side quests in FF10. There is butterfly catching. Thunder doging. Creature capturing. All these lead to ultimate weapons for people. Then boss's there are the infamous Dark Aeons, Ultimate and Omega Weapons. How many other boss's do you want.
