Final Fantasy XII was better than any JRPG released this Gen.

XIII is better than XII so I can't agree.

Although XII was pretty good.

I like FF12, and this gen was barren with good "j" RPGs, but hell NO.

This gen had things that beat FF12. FF13 not being one of them.

Rofl, is this a joke topic? FFXII was easily the WORST JRPG last gen, you expect it to beat the really decent ones from this gen? Granted, this gen has sucked in terms of JRPGS but here's a list of good current gen games that absolutely annihilate FFXII

Ni no Kuni
Arc Rise Fantasia
Xenoblade
The Last Story
Tales Of Vesperia
Tales Of Graces F
Tales Of Xillia
Final Fantasy XIII-2 (Yeah, I went there! Though I don't think this counts considering its not a main-line title.)

Even some hand-held games destroy FFXII!
Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky (Technically last-gen but you know what? It got localized this gen, so its current-gen enough for me!)
Radiant Historia

And of course, Xenoblade being the only the only good game on the list

Hey, I agree with this topic.

Well, not including the Souls series of course

FFXII looks beautiful on emulator

I've been playing Final Fantasy since the NES era, and I absolutely loved XII. That said, I still felt like Xenoblade was just a bit better.

Otherwise, I pretty much agree completely. Fantastic game.

Can't help but notice that a lot of the people who hated FFXII are just really....snotty about it.

XII was one of the best games I've ever played, I was hooked into it's gameplay immediately. Getting a 100% on it was just a joy to do.

Nothing so far has found the magic that it had for me.

I'm planning on grabbing the Zodiac edition at some point and giving that a run through.

Final Fantasy XII isnt just an amazing game it is a Masterpiece.

Even the whole story about its inception and development is intriguing and all the ties it did to connect with Final Fantasy Tactics,
Vagrant Story and the Ivalice Alliance as a whole.

The world was rich in detail, exploration and lore: I could spend hours just reading the journal entries and connecting myths together.
The music was grand and fighting rare monsters and hunts was my favorite hobby.
I LOVE the fact that it was difficult to decipher some of the quests and finding those amazing weapons and loot.
The npcs were awesome.
