The Last Story
Xenoblade Chronicles





I could go on...


None of those are better than Final Fantasy X, though. DQ VIII and THe Last Story and maybe even Baten Kaitos might be neck and neck with X, but every one of those games on those list either just suck or aren't anywhere as good as X, ESPECIALLY Xenosaga Episode II and I. II just plain sucked. I don't know why you put that one the list.

Anyway, TC, I would agree if you said X was the last great Final Fantasy to come out, but we still had great gems this gen, even though they weren't from SE.

FFX has got to be the worst FF that I have the misfortune of playing. FFXII was an improvement in literally every possible way.

THIS.

Well actually, I think X-2 was even worse than X.

X-2 had a worse story but it's pretty much general agreed upon majority of opinion that it had a good battle system

XII tried to play like an offline MMO which is bad because MMO's are garbage. Why would you want to emulate garbage. Gambits = teh suck. Valiant effort in trying something new but it didnt work. And Vaan sucked, and the story wasn't that interesting and the color scheme was all brown.


The only redeemable thing about XII now is that in hindsight now that the XIII series is out, it actually seems more worthy to play despite it's flaws

FF12 didn't attempt to be an MMO, it just took certain really good MMO elements like on-field battles and a more "balanced" combat system.

Have you ever even played an MMO? It really doesn't have any of the negative things associated with MMOs, like being overly grindy, copy-paste quest design, single player combat and rotation based combat. Those are the things that are generally considered bad about MMOs.

Also, gambits were completely optional.

Imo FFXII was one of the greatest jrpg's ever made.

Otoh of all the jrpg's I've played this gen I've only finished two. Resonance of Fate and Atelier Rorona.
