I wish future FFs would have minigames similar to FF7

That game had so many of them and alot of them were fun.

Snow boarding,battle arena,chocobo breeding/racing,bike game and many many more.

FFX 8 and 9 had the card game which was cool. FFX had blitzball.

but with FFXII I felt there were too few minigames. I still enjoy it, have 100 hours in it but I left the game on alot too. Hunting marks is ok but I wish they were repeatable. The fishing minigame is meh.

Well, you're in luck. XIV will have a Gold Saucer.

You thought chocobo breeding was fun? I loved just about every mini-game in VII except that...well okay, and the paper-rock-scissors machine.

yes I thought chocobo breeding was interesting and had depth to it. Depending on the greens you fed your chocobo determined the speed/stamina stats and what not of your chocobo.

Also, the rock paper scissors..wasnt taht the boxing game?

There was a submarine game too.

yeah if memory serves me right if you bred your two gold chocobos you could keep breeding to get faster goldchocobos im pretty sure it capped at 999 though.

The only mini-games I really liked were Chocobo Breeding, Chocobo Racing and to a lesser extent, the Battle Arena. I would've been perfectly fine if the other ones weren't in the game.
On a mission to beat every Legend of Zelda game (excluding the crappy "non-existent" Phillips CD-i games).

if anything the other games added to the immersive feeling you got when you were in Golden Saucer.

It was its own city pretty much.

The motorcycle game was amazing in spite of its simplicity.
The sub game was cool.
The rail shooter was aight.
Snowboarding was awesome.
3D Battler gives people AIDS.
Mog House. Why.
Seven. Point. Five.
