@Astro

to even fully appreciate the classic MM series, you just had to of been there during their release, at least with 1-3. MM was a game changer, and there was absolutely nothing else like it when it hit the scene. MM2 was absolutely epic and improved on the original in every single way imaginable. The impact that game had during the NES hay days was enormous, it's considered the ultimate classic mega man for many reasons and boasts one of the most brilliant soundtracks in videogame history. That game was 8-bit heaven, a masterpiece if you will. Sure looking at it now, the ladder climbing is a bit slow, the controls aren't quite as zippity as the later MM games and a few of the boss fights aren't the most polished(Quick man for ex). No game is perfect.
But hod damn was this game amazing back in the late 80's.

And fiddly and bland level design? You lost me dude. You must feel the same way about all 8-bit games then. The Classic Mega Man series are known to have some of the most detailed and varied stage design out there. They were considered TOP CLASS in the visual department. Was the original SMB, LOZ and Metroid too bland for you? Again, kids who didn't grow up in the NES era will never beable to fully appreciate how truly amazing these games were during the release. This stands true especially for those who grew up with 3D based consoles. It's just how it is... Somebody who started out playing the Gamecube(Super Mario Sunshine for ex) and YEARS later just for kicks automatically shifted to Super Mario Bros on the NES will not beable to fathom or understand just how amazing and magical it truly was during it's time. The NES was cutting edge, but being accustomed to a '3 generations later' 3D riddled polygon ultra power house console will compltely knock down the wow factor. This may even slightly ring true for children who started out with the SNES to some degree who were used to 16 bit.

Anyhoo, I feel that all of the classic Mega Man games have aged perfectly.....Well, aside from MM3 which is crippled with slowdown. Sonic games haved aged fantastic as well, they're just not my cup of toobular tetris tea bud! lol Even back then as a Genesis owner I found them to be just 'OK' at best. But yup, i always get in defense mode when somebody busts out the 'Most nes games haven't aged too well' I think that's BS. MOST 3D Based PS1 & N64 games are the ones that haven't aged well. Aside from the lifeless blocky & barren graphics, many of those games are crippled with below 30 frame rates which is just unecceptable in this day and age.

I would like to thank everyone for the well thought discussions and smack talk.
This made for a very interesting mashup between two very iconic and beloved video game franchises.

But now we must move on!

New: Final Fantasy VII vs. Final Fantasy IX

It's the renowned classic versus the beloved and nostalgic sequel~
Is the seventh entry considered so in royalty that no sequel can match its excellence? Or is the ninth entry the better game despite its lesser popularity? Only the votes will decide in this mashup!

Final Fantasy VII: 0
Final Fantasy IX: 0

I have yet to play Final Fantasy IX, so even though I absolutely loved Final Fantasy VII, I won't be voting this time :3

Start voting now!

Final Fantasy IX. I'm getting my opinion entirely from a let's play admittedly, but that made me think it is better than any other Final Fantasy.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

@Waveboy
I never said the graphics where bland it's the levels, sparse amounts of enemies and the series just generally has a slow feel to the platforming (MM makes Mario feel as fast as sonic). And compared to the layered levels of SMB there is usually just the one route through a level in MM and no hidden areas as such. And enemies/bosses have fidgety AI that feels irritating instead of challenging. The graphics and music are great for the NES though. And just because I don't particularly like MM doesn't mean I don't like all NES games. In fact, SMB is one of the best platformers I've ever played, speed running in that game is unparalleled. But that's just my opinion.

As much as I loved VII, I've probably poured in upwards of 800 hours into Final Fantasy IX over the years.

Sooo yeah, I'm going with IX.

Both are some of the better games of the series. I love the charm and characters in IX! I never finished the game but all the characters were very likeable! I'm glad they took it back to the series roots a bit for that game.

However I'm going with VII. Great story, characters you loved or hated, wonderful story, great battle system, and for its time some of the best graphics going on any game! Did I mention awesome story!! Oh and I forgot the music. I spent a ton of hours on that game and to this day could start it all over again!! I'm still hoping for an hd remake some day just for this game!

FFIX is what started my love of JRPGs so I'm a bit biased towards it.

Never understood the hype for FFVII. It's a solid game, but for me, I never felt like it was one of the all-time greats like a lot of people do.

FFIX it is.

Final Fantasy VII has the better story and had more of an emotional impact on me (not because of Aerith though). It also features some of my favourite moments from any RPG I've played and I enjoyed the Materia system a lot. On the other hand IX has a very cohesive creative vision with its beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds and perfect music. I really like that it is more "tradiitonal" compared to other Final Fantasy's since the PS1 era and it has a cast of very likeable and memorable characters. I've often said that I think IX is the better game overall, but because VII has those special moments and a more powerful story I would have to go with VII.

So my choice is Final Fantasy VII - just.

Final Fantasy VII. IX is my third favorite, beaten only by IV and VII. VII is tied with SMRPG for my all-time favorite game.

I'm going back a little bit to the Mega Man vote/discussion and especially to the Waver. The whole evolution part of the question threw me for a Sonic shuttle loop. Since I have not played Mega Man beyond SNES and much Sonic beyond Genesis I did not vote. If it was a straight up which is better I would have definitely voted for Mega Man. Seriously though, to put it quite simply, while collecting and rediscovering retro games I am finding so many great hidden gems that are either just as good or better than Mega Man and that is why I think it is overrated. Though I may think its "overrated," which is overrated used word anyway, I still enjoy 8 and 16 bit Mega Man. The nostalgia buzz from 2 and 3 is hard to beat!

Never played Final Fantasy IX so I will vote for VII.

Final Fantasy VII. I would have liked IX if it doesn't play so slow.

Hence my statement before that non-Nintendo titles get less votes :c
