FINAL FANTASY X HD who's buying?

^ Tidus is narrating the story to the people who JUST EXPERIENCED IT at a campfire and is deluded into thinking the story is about him but it isn't. It is Yuna's story. A farm girl who has led a sheltered life and has next to no experience in the world having to sacrifice herself for the safety of all human kind is a much better idea for a protagonist than some ****blanket who traveled through time, has no idea where he is, what's going on, why things don't go his way and won't stop complaining about how his dad never hugged him.
I don't get Final Fantasy games anymore. Is it too much to ask for the main character to be the main character?


You don't like Tidus -- that's fine, but this isn't a rebuttal. The story-telling mechanics of Final Fantasy X are by and large the same. If you need to know what a story-telling mechanic is, think of the differences between Memento and the Lord of the Rings. JRPGs' story-telling mechanics are almost always the same.

No, because its the worst FF game that I have played. Horrible story, horrible characters, horrible art design, decent gameplay at best, mediocre everything else.


Seriously? Out of FFVII through XIII-3...you'd name X the worst? Really?
Not VII, VIII, X-2, XI, XII, XIII or XIII-2?
X?


Among these? X is definitely the worst. It's better than most early FFs, but better than VIII, XIII or XIII-2? Are you freaking serious?

I'm not a big X fan, but it's definitely better than XIII and XIII-2.

Nah, I've tried replaying it 2 or 3 times, and I just can't. The battles just take way too long.

It's a shame, because I really enjoyed the game the first time around, but I just can't play it anymore.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

It's aged just fine. You're just a graphics whore like everyone else these days. Yeah, the voice acting can be bad. But the boss fights are pretty good (except the last one of course), the aions are by far the best summons of the entire series and the story is well told and actually makes you think to figure it out. I hope it's remade. But I hope 7 is remade even more. No FF will ever capture the magic and tell as good a story as that game did. And 8 is a close second. The PSOne and PS2 era of games might be the best we'll ever experience. They're certainly better than this gen's best titles.

I'm actually playing through it again right now. I was waiting for the HD release but it was taking way too long and I'm not sure if it will ever come out. It's still probably my favorite final fantasy although 7 is pretty close.

err to answer topic... Yes I will buy it day one sometime in 2015

Agreed. The only thing is the NPC character models aren't up to par with the main character models. Plus the character animation in some scenes was jerky and too fast at times,

I hope they fix that like they added updated character models in Kingdom Hearts 1,5D but I'm not holding my breath.


Also maybe add a few new things like they are doing with Dragon Quest VII 3DS. Maybe online Blitzball. That one's looking pretty good...

OK...here's something I've wondered about. What is this about being a "graphics whore?" So what if I like games to look pretty on my TV?
