Maybe makes sense to put these in just 1 thread given that they're all old games?

This was the biggest surprise of the Direct for me. I've already played 7,9 and 10 about 10 times each so not fussed about those, although it's good for newcomers given that they're 3 of the best games ever made. This will be the only way of playing FF12 on a portable though. So that's cool.

@Dezzy It's alright, but the lack of spacing bothers me

If they release Fallout New Vegas also I could finally throw out my original giant PS3. I'm going to re-buy FFX, and I'm going to buy FF12 for the first time.

Why skip VIII? That’s the only PSX FF I still need to get. Glad to see XII coming though. I’ll probably get it at some point.

I've never been a big fan of Final Fantasy, but I will probably pick up VII just because I have heard so much about it and it's so iconic. Then if I actually like it I will think about others.

Unfortunately of all of these games, FF7 has aged the worst by far. Graphically and in terms of things like awkward controls (it was released before the analog stick)
FF9 is the best one to start with. It's aged perfectly, it's a simpler game for newcomers to the series, and it's generally seen as one of the best (it has the highest metacritic of any game in the series at 94%)

It's still a great game though. FF 12 though... Not that excited about that one. The story's great. Gameplay on the other hand... Well, the final boss fight took me an hour. During the entire fight I only touched the controller once, and that was just long enough to switch party members after a party wipe so I could revive the dead members. Afterwords I put the controller back down and continued watching as my AI controlled party beat up the final boss using the gambit setup I had made.

Unpopular opinion: I don't like FF IX. Extremely long loading times, unbearably slow battles (even with the battle speed turned all the way up), ability system had potential but 90% of the abilities you can learn were either useless or uninteresting, trance system was absolutely worthless, the card game sucks and is required this time, and so many purposely unwinnable boss fights that soon I couldn't tell when I was supposed to die and when I wasn't and dying would send me back to the title screen.

Even it's official strategy guide was terrible. You'd look up how to beat a certain boss and the advice would be nothing but "Deal damage by attacking the boss. If your health gets low, use a healing item or spell" and if you wanted actual information you had to go to some crappy internet website and put in the code for that part of the book.

Still like it better than VIII though.

@ReaderRagfish

The recent version of FF9 has an additional battle speed option so that issue has been fixed.

I will probably buy all of these. When I have time to play them is anyone's guess. XD

@Agriculture The origianl that's backwards compatible with PS2 games? If you're gonna throw it out, send it to me!

Most people prefer traditional FF but Zodiac Age was something different...never played it but always wanted to...

And i was hoping for FF 13....give us some Lightning!

@FaeKnight

FF12 is another game that got the speed-up option. So those long fights that are heavily automated can be done a lot quicker. Easily the best new feature for the new version.

So this leaves I to VI, VIII and XIII left in terms of excluding the MMORPGs.

I have VII, IX, X, and X-2 on my PSP/Vita, so I have zero interest in those.*

*Unless there's a S-E online store exclusive physical version or something.

However, XII...I would love to have a portable version of, so I'm in.

Sadly no, the one right after, still giant, but plays only PS1 and PS3 games, but it could install Linux way back when, then Sony removed that function too through a software update.
