I've already played FFVI on the SNES, but I felt like making this anyway.

The script's better in most places, a few extra dungeons and enemies, some new equipment and items, extra espers and all of the old glitches were taken out. Interestingly, there's one new glitch that can let you get an infinite amount of any weapon and shield that Terra can equip.

As for espers, it used to be that Odin was the only esper that gives a bonus to speed when a character levels up (+1). Since Odin gets upgraded, a lot of players would purposely keep him until they reach really high levels before upgrading. Now that we have the Giant Cactuar esper (GBA exclusive) and it gives +2 speed upon levelling up, the player should upgrade Odin right away.

...you're kidding, right? PS1 version has a clear downgrade in sound vs. the SNES. This isn't even really debatable; they just ported the SNES version to the PS1, added a few little features (like Auto Dash) and called it a day; naturally, sound quality is lost when you do this.

Sure, the SNES has the "best" sound of them all. But the PSX version isn't so horribly mangled like you're making it out to be. For that matter, it has several other bonuses exclusive to that version (most notably the CGI renderings and art gallery). Between those two versions, all but a negligible amount of sound quality is lost unless you're some sort of ****ing sociopath. And even then, if I really just have to hear a song then I'll go with a Youtube rip of the song.

Only 1 vote for the SNES version?

I'm kind of surprised.

SNES version.

The PS1 version I've never played, but if the load times are anything like Chrono Trigger's, then yeah, no.

The GBA version is great, but some of the extras are very tedious (Dragon's Den is HORRIBLE), and the music is slightly worse.

First off, how is complaining sound quality equating a sociopath? I don't think that word means what you think it means.


And secondly...no, there is a definite loss in quality and its significant. Its not a "negligible" amount like you're saying. I've seen multiple people who've played the PSX version first, play the SNES version and were wowed by how much better the sound is. Truth be told, you're underselling it actually.
