The best things about FF?

If they ever invented the ‘greatest’ FF game… What would the key elements be? (that already exist in other FF games…)

It would definetely have to have the freedom of the FFX battle system… and chocobos and Moogles would play an important part in the game (or at least appear a lot in it)

It would also have to be slightly old-school in it’s world… More of a fantasy element to it, instead of futuristic…

Oh, and you need those small things that make an FF game an FF… like Biggs and Wedge, and Cid (playable character or not)

Hmm… What does anyone else think the ‘ultimate’ FF game would have?

It’s called Final Fantasy Origins. It comes with FF2 as a bonus.

Chocobos, Moogles, Airships, Swords, Magic, and a guy named Cid. That is all.

Weapons, magic, enemies, characters, places and a story!

Yoshitaka Amano as the character designer. 8)

A deep storyline with twists, and a fun battle system.

You’ll never be able to create the perfect FF game… because then square’ll come up with some new idea and that’ll have to be included as well… but good storyline, good characters, good graphics… ah hell, just make everything gooder than good and that’s as close to perfect as possible :slight_smile:

Yeah, and Nobuo doing another fantastic orchestral soundtrack.

MOOGLES!!! :yipee:
but a good thing to have would be a job system again, make it as hard (or harder) than final fantasy 1, and last but not least, NO MAIN CHARACTERS!!!


No main characters? How is that possible? Even in FFI where the Light Warriors weren’t given any dialouge they were still the main characters. I think you need to elucidate your thoughts.

I think they just meant no character who steals the lime-light for the entire game… maybe?

Ooo… Best things… you’ld need the game to have some kinda card game within it, like tetra master!!

well, I would like to see it maintain the set of spells it has and maybe so more new ones. But I hafta agree on the Chocobo/Moogle/Cid/Wedge/Biggs part

I totally agree with the job system idea, but I feel it should be really complex. Maybe like Disgaea or DW where each class has a more powerful for of itself or something.

Things I think would be good hmm. Job system is cool. Cid/biggs/wedge/other ff trademarks. Yeah Having all the main characters equally as important to the storyline so that you aren’t forced to have a certain character in your battle party at almost all times like cloud/Squall/Zidane. A good story nice graphics and you’re set.

Chocobos, Cid, and great music done by the master himself, and of course you have to have a better and more emotional storyline than FF7.

In MY opinion, it’s not a FF game unless it has:

  1. MAGIC! You cannot call it a fantasy if doesn’t have magic!! Even the cyberpunkish FF7 had magic!! (But The Spirits Within didn’t, so I don’t consider it a TRUE FF.) There must be at least some classic FF spells, like Stona or Esuna.
  2. Jobs. Not necessarily a job SYSTEM, but the main characters must have recognizable job stereotypes. Even in FF7, you can tell who’s meant to be the Fighter, who’s meant to be the White Mage, etc.)
  3. Saving the World. I mean, it’s not a FINAL fantasy unless you save the world, no?

Not necessary, but always nice, are:

  1. FF-only monsters, like the cactuars and marlboros.
  2. The Summons! (these are ALMOST a requisite these days!)
  3. Magic Items unique to the FF series ( I forget the names now, but there’s many.)
  4. Famous NPCs like Cid or Wedge & Biggs.
  5. In-game references to other FFs.
  6. Some classic FF music pieces, like the Crystals Theme and the Victoly Theme.

Wil you can’t forget the I’m riding a chocobo theme. I love that tune. Du du doo do doo do do doo do doo.
