Have FF IV as their favorite or second favorite? I know people gots dem opinions but damn it all if it don't make sense to me or just flat out make me mad. HOW CAN YOU SAY FF IV IS THE BEST?! >:(

Ahem. So anyway, I was watching this incredibly intelligent guy on youtube, big FF fan and he reviewed all the games up to 12, he gave insight I had never seen before story-wise, but then he lost me at FF IV. He got all emotional, crying a little bit, gushing, said it was one of the best games ever made, top 5 in fact, I'm like wtf...of course he's like 30 years old so he's cynical and biased apparently, lives in the past good old days of wonderland nostalgia, but seriously...I've seen this a lot, where people say FF IV is one of the best if not the best. Why? The story is cliche, it's been topped by a million other things FF and non FF. It's simple, it's boring, IT'S OLD. Still good, but not the best dammit.

Yeah I know it's opinions but you know, there's also bias and selfishness and shortsightedness etc etc.

Think about the context of the time he played it in-- not just in that he was young, but that the cliche was still awe-inspiring. The story has a clean, simple structure, but all those dark aspects too. Even I have to give it a little respect though I didn't play it until I was in my 20s.

FFIV is probably the first FF game that guy's played. fans have a weird connection with their first FF.

FF 13 had a amazing story. People say that it depended to mush in the datalog. But, dindn't Dishonored depended as hell on books to understand the world and mithology? At least if 13 you only had to read the mith and events of the first chapter. If you need the datalog after that, you certianly have a problem retaning information.
