VI, IX AND XII? Sold. Heck, if he did V then he'd be my favorite director in all of Square Enix

Hiroyuki Ito directed FFVI, FFIX, and FFXII. He was also the Game Designer of both FFV and FFT. Really, he's the most talented game developer at SQEX by far. What he lacks in story depth, he makes up for in gameplay depth.

Was Ito responsible for the plot in IX as well or was he just in charge of the gameplay?

I agree that what he lacks in story depth he more than makes up for in gameplay. That would suggest, however, that any games he works on would be need two directors. One for plot/event planner and one for gameplay; which is perfectly fine by me.

I like FFIX's and FFXII's stories better than FFVII's (FFIX more than it anyway) and FFVIII's, so even in story I think the game's Ito directed were good.

Ito is nice despite how boring FF12's story was.

The gameplay is still solid.

I know you can act mature when you want to.
I even typed my sentence in a way that can't be seen as anything other than just my preference.

The script for FFIX was written by Sakaguchi. However, Ito heavily edited parts of it to his liking as development went on. For example, it's Hiroyuki Ito that made Zidane flirtatious and put in all his perv scenes. The event scene where Zidane touches Garnet's ass is by Ito, so is the scene where he starts flirting with the woman in the bar at Lindlum where he meets Freya.

Also, I have high hopes that if Hiroyuki Ito directs FFXVI, he'll get the script to be written by Yasumi Matsuno.

Ask me anything about FFXV and any FF director (besides Ito because he's a sham without the "wow")!
