Better than every other game in the FF series (procluding tactics), and one of the very few actually worth seeing through.

You'll enjoy it dude, definitely play FF9 next. I normally don't like turn-based JRPGs of this style, but FF9 surpasses even my standards.

But FFT IS Tactics Ogre, they are the same shit.

>> No.4218451

It was made by the guys behind Tactics Ogre. It plays and looks exactly like Tactics Ogre, with a few tweaks. Even its story directly incorporates elements from Ogre Battle (the Zodiac stones). Come on now.

Also IX is too slow to be really good, plus it still has the series mainstays that make it painful to play as an adult. I'd say V is the best Final Fantasy, and the only good one, because even though the story is retarded (like all FFs) at least it doesn't take itself seriously and the gameplay is extremely flexible in a way that provides for many unique challenges, unlike most FFs.

Stop right there homosex. When the fuck did I ever say anything about the game being critically underrated? You have reached a level of delusion and retardation where you are attacking arguments that don't exist, solely because you are so assblasted about the success of a game you dislike that you assume my opinion. Nothing in my statement even implied that the game "critically underrated", I said the game was great because it is. If you can't appreciate the atmosphere, quality and overall design of FF9, that's fine, you're entitlted to your opinion. Some people enjoy smearing shit on themselves too, that doesn't mean it isn't retarded.

Now I could give you a whole list of reasons for why the game is good, but let's be realistic, there's no point in doing that when your biases and pre-conceived notions have already blinded you to the point of using strawman arguments.

Tactics Ogre is more serious in tone, but I wouldn't call it boring... the branching paths were more fun to explore than FFT's railroad fedora plot that ends up just like all the Ogre Battle games (church = evil, disregard politics destroy demons). If only it was more balanced. Thankfully the PSP remake fixes that.

OB64 and FFT are so damn the same, you ask one if it wants ice cream, they both say yes.

job system is a million times better than learning from items. And the battles are 5 times faster. Just compare using the "escape" command.

Wrong. Learning from items provides so much more customization and control over your character.

I don't really see how OB64 is the same as FFT. I mean, I'm assuming you're obviously not talking about gameplay, because they're very different, but even when it comes to plot the tone of OB64 is different. It's not focused on bringing down the dominant religion, but rather on myths that predate the dominant religion. And OB64's primary relationship is openly homoerotic, there's nothing like that in FFT.

>so much more customization
Customization that was directly limited to where you were in the story.

This is about as nonsencial as saying the sphere grid in 10 allowed freedom when every character was going to be the same by the time you got to penance.

>amazing music
On top of being subjective only final fantasy 8 has had songs that were garnered worldwide acclaim due in part to the use of one of them in the olympics.

Why does that even matter. On /vr/ of all places.

>art direction
Look I like Itahana and all of his art for the chocobo spinoffs, and that's exactly where his art designs should stay. The biggest graphical juxtaposition of the entire series lies with 9 which looks more on par with the aforementioned spinoffs and less in line with a mainline.

Not even a little bit. The worlds ravaged, wars are fought, three characters have deep interactions with the events that are directly affecting your party and yet the tone never lifts higher than being a road trip for 60% of the game.

Like I like FF9. And because I like 9 it's why I will mention it's faults. Anybody who's pretending 9 was perfect given how many flaws to gameplay (trance) and story (necron) was there as well as rather subpar visuals for some fights (soulcage) are letting the fanboy in them rebel way to damn hard.

Most video game fanbases are pure cancer. The same thing happens with other series, like Fallout.

I love FF9, it's my favorite FF. The soundtrack is also amazing, nobuo uematsu even said in an interview at some university that he was most proud of his work on that game.

However, I wonder if all this new praise for FF9 recently is just because of the "sonic cd" effect (where people only like it because it's the largely ignored one that not many people played).

I've never heard anyone ever even mention this game until recently. Which is understandable. It came out towards the very end of the PS1 lifecycle, people were still hyped over 8 at the time. 10 was just around the corner. And people weren't interested in the fantasy setting and were more interested in the more futuristic setting at the time.

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. The weapon isn't obtained until after you set foot in the final dungeon.

Single-character challenges usually abuse BANE to kill bosses. There's a sword that can cast the spell when used as an item in battle, so any character can use this tactic.
