I actually think the Final Fantasy games have gotten progressively better with each installment. This is probably because I hadn't tried them when XII was released and started playing them up to now, and I feel like the older ones haven't aged quite as well.

I feel like they all have their good and bad qualities:

1 - Greatest sense of adventure despite general lack of story and some broken machanics in the early version
2 - Developed some innovative machanics that influence games even to this day despite the early versions being easily breakable.
3 - Best of both worlds of the previous two games with a new class system that arguably worked better than the one in FF5, despite FF5 doing nearly everything better
4 - Most focused story despite sacrificing complex gameplay mechanics and exploration
5 - Best class system despite scaling back the story and requiring an immense amount of grinding
6 - Large cast of cast of characters and variety of mechanics despite the innummerable bugs, exploits, and broken mechanics
7 - Most well-rounded despite being ugly as sin
9 - Best story and characters despite certain flaws with the weapon skill system
10 - Best ending and combat despite being too easy to really utilize said mechanics, the story dragging too much, and certain characters being generally unlikable
11 - impressive scale, story and mechanics, despite doling out the story too rarely, and retaining most of the problems associated with MMOs
12 - Largely succeed in bringing the impressive scale of FF11 to a singleplayer game despite some poor pacing, rediculous late-game dungeons, bland characters, and rough combat that takes too long to come into its own
13 - Best pacing and most focused story despite being too focused on story and forcing linear paths throughout much of the game with next to no exploration
13-2 - Fixed most of the gameplay-related issues and introducing tons of good ideas despite butchering the story

*I skipped 8 because I couldn't think of a good thing to say about it. Also only bothered to include 13-2 because I skipped 8.

All in all, none of them a perfect, but hardly any of them are terrible either. It's all about what you're looking for and what you're willing to tolerate.

Whatever's cheaper, which is usually Amazon.

This, though I prefer to pre-order from Amazon since I don't have to go all the way over there to pick up the game, and I'm not ordering from GS' website.

...I don't think I have any anymore. There are some games I'm okay with that people hate, like Final Fantasy II, Phantasy Star II, Devil May Cry 2, SaGa Frontier II, and Shadow the Hedgehog (c-c-c-c-combo breaker!!!)....but I wouldn't say they're anything above tolerable, honestly.

What do you mean by SMT gameplay? Most entries in the franchise play entirely different from one another. Like most big RPG franchises...

YES!!! I was hoping it would happen in March, since then the anime could continue unimpeded, but this is great news nonetheless.

There's a new Soul Eater series titled Soul Eater Not! Has anyone heard about this anime series yet?

It's based on a Manga that's been around for years. I'm almost surprised it took so long to get animated.

I do at least agree that right now Wii 2 but in HD would've been a better idea as a whole, both in terms of success and in terms of use of the gimmick.

I think what would've justified it was that Wiimotion plus has so much life left in it.

Got any songs from them you recommend? I've only listened to a 5 or 6 so far, but I haven't run into a bad or even mediocre song yet.

I don't know how popular this is with non-nintendo fanatic gamer community, but I think a remake of Star Tropics would not work at all. It's a great game for the time that it came out but I think it would be pretty poor, and not held in nearly as high regard as the original.

It would pretty much be Dark Souls, actually...which means you're right, but it won't stop people from buying it in droves and praising it to the sun...
