As you play FF, consider your political views

I think this topic could be really interesting. I don't think left/right views have a big impact on which FFs people like most, but what if I'm wrong?

For the record, I'm very liberal and my favorite FFs are VI, VII and X.


Yes!

General reception I figure is impacted by quality of the product and not so much politics,

As a social/economic liberal and a foreign-policy hard core conservative, I don't know what any of this has to do with anything.

Have you ever thought that the general reception of an FF was somewhat influenced by politics?

It's easy to understand why leftists would hate on a game like FFIX, but wouldn't that mean that conservatives are mostly to blame for hating the more revolutionary titles like VII and X? The centrists seem to be the most unbiased fans when it comes to this.

So what will happen with Lightning Returns? Will it be liberals or conservatives who will come out on top this time and command the fanbase's general opinion?


it might be, at least in my case...

I'm a leftist and I hate everything Steiner did in FFIX. I want to punch him for his stupidity.

I'm an atheist... so I love FFX a lot.

XIII is kinda fight against the pope too. so I like it.

oh... FFT too.

Are we talking about the American definitions of left and right?
Because that makes a lot of difference.

I don't care about my political views, though I'm most definitely not a conservative Republican who thinks Mass Effect is all about killing aliens and having sex despite not actually playing the game.

To the moogle: V left more roots than VI


Certainly not in writing, and for that matter, I can't remember a game using the Esper system like FFVI.

Argument invalid.


Job system expanded massively, which was done so further in Tactics. Gligamesh. Hyper girl. V was more influential down the line than VI in the series

I'd really like to know what was revolutionary about FFVII and FFX.


Despite what anyone feels about the game, FFVII DID bring rpgs into the mainstream and solidified the genre's place in the west (until FFXIII blew it apart). That's revolutionary in my book.

Not sure what FFX revolutionized though, and I adore that game.


Yea because so many jrpgs have been so successful this gen.


Not really
