    I wouldn't try picking a fight with VII either, but did you know.........that 9 was better than 8, too?

    Final Fantasy 9 ranks as a strong second favorite due to it's absolutely amazing music and Beatrix.

    This is just my journal so I'm not going to argue here. I will say that I prefer 8, but I don't think it's a better game. You're free to prefer whichever you like best too, and 7 is a great game that I've replayed as recently as this past Spring! I definitely like it, but I have some really good memories with 8 that puts it first on my list. 9 was my favorite for a long time, but 8 won out for me as an adult. The reasons I like 8 so much have a lot to do with my life at the time I first played it, and nobody else can have the exact experience I had so it's pointless to push on people. I know it's a busted mess, mechanically. I follow FF7 Remake news daily and I already have my pre-order paid so I'm 100% on-board for 7 as well, it's just not my favorite one.

    My order goes 8 > 9 (barely) > Tactics > 7. As long as someone's an FF fan then I don't care which they like. Besides, FF8 is Mantis' favorite game as well which he was tactically choosing not to mention

    Same goes with Majora's Mask, I get a lot of flak for that being my favorite Zelda game. I have a Majora's Mask thread and FF8 thread in the gaming section of the Heifong sub-forum where we can discuss them or argue about them as much as you want! Whether it's anime or video games, I have a bad habit of enjoying the black sheep of a series or type of media. We're here on an Outlaw Star forum. OLS is considered by a lot of people to be the knockoff Bebop or Trigun, but they're wrong.

    ...whatever.

    Totally understand on all of that! Iím just perpetually looking to start arguments (the fun kind, not actual confrontational ones) lol. And I did lots of thread browsing when I got to OSN, so I was aware that mantis was partial to that one, too.

    As for VII remake, right there with ya. Same and same. IX... that game could have been so great, but somehow they did an amazing job fleshing out every single character EXCEPT the main character. Zidane just wasnít interesting or relatable while every other character felt like they had so much more to them. I hate that, because I loved so many other aspects of the game. The music was so good. When I go to Distant Worlds concerts Iím always praying theyíll pick some of the amazing tracks from that game to do.

    Huh, I never noticed that but you're totally right. I grew up with IX, when I moved to PA and our house was still empty (we were unpacking for a good long while) my room just had a mattress, TV, and Playstation for about a week. My Dad knew how bored I must have been, so he drove me to the nearest mom & pop movie rental store and let me pick out a game. I didn't own a single FF game at the time but I had played through most of VIII and watched my neighbor play VII, so when I saw Final Fantasy I snagged that up QUICK. Much like VIII, IX represents a time in my life more so than a video game to me. I never really looked at it with a critical eye, but Zidane is as poorly fleshed out as you claim. The weird Genome stuff somewhere in Disc 4 is practically the only backstory he gets, and he is so confident from the get-go that he doesn't develop much either. He gets sad for like 5 minutes when Garnet becomes Queen because he thinks he won't get to see her much anymore, but is that really development? He sort of sulks about it then he gets what he wants when she rejoins the party. He doesn't need to overcome the emotional obstacle or grow in any meaningful way.

    Got a haircut 2 weeks ago and while it's my fault for not giving the lady any instructions I ended up with something that looks exactly like my avatar (which was designed to look like me anyway).
