Hi everyone,

As the topic title implies please refrain from spoilers please as I am planning on playing this game. Thank you.

Now I have played this game before and enjoyed it a lot...... a long time ago and I never finished it I had a problem with disc 3-4 can't remember if it had 4 discs. It was the last disc anyway I digress. I remember being pretty upset about it as I said I was really enjoying this game now this was when I was 13-14 am now 25 so am thinking if its worth picking this game up again so long after. I love final fantasy nd u have recently started playing X again. I am thinking of buying this again also.

Now I understand the irony of asking the IX board "should I play this again?" But I do really want to get honest opinions.

Thank you for reading.

Yes i have played every single Final Fantasy (the main series anyway) and IX is my favorite, you wont be disappointed.
IX > VI > VII > IV > VIII > V > X > XII > I > III > II > 50 miles down filled with human waste then XIII

Yeah, this game is super, and don't be fooled by the childish art style, this game isn't childish, is very mature and have some of the darkest moments of the series, of course you will find humor and lighthearted moments too.

Final Fantasy IX is one of the absolute must play titles in the series. Some criticize it's chibi-esque character design or slow battle system (It really is the slowest of the ATB systems IMHO), but overall it knows its history and roots and the game honors them both.

You will not be disappointed.

This is true. The only reason am asking is that u never really hear about IX and theres the whole "stood the test of time" deal. I really dont remeber much about this atall I remember a few characters and the opening bits with zidane, garnet and steiner etc. So am hoping if I get it, it will b like playing it from scratch. That I think would be good.

I remember being lukewarm about it 13 years ago, but recently decided to replay it. I'm half way in to disc 2 and am enjoying it. It's not blowing me away, but it is a good, definitely above average rpg.
