Didn't mean to condescend, but I can definitely see how my post came off that way.  My bad.  Too much time on GFAQs, it would seem.

As a one-time experience it holds up despite the on-rails nature, because its setting and music are superlative and battles flow smoothly.  The characters are interesting enough at first, too.  It's just harder to go back to than its peers, is all.

I mean, this is all my own opinion, of course, but even on that level we're talking tiny tiny margins, here.  That's why I can look at SNES IV and see a "subpar" FF, and yet with the few tweaks to it in the CC version I'm looking at one of my favorites.  That said, The After Years is probably 51% of the reason Complete Collection is one of my favorite FFs.

The original SNES version of IV is not great, and anyone who says otherwise is trying to sell you their own nostalgia.

However, the Complete Collection version of IV is one of the best Final Fantasy titles ever.

I think I know the exact spoiler you're talking about.

And thank you!  I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out.  I'm catching up to you!  (no I'm not)

1. Final Fantasy IV (kinda sucks)


Original SNES version?

It's Dragon Quest XI yo! But I already know that it's great because I've been playing the Japanese version. That game is VERY hard up to beat Dragon Quest VIII, but so far it has not disappointed and it could be a contender. I'll judge it once I've finished the game and then I'll rejudge it when it comes out in English, which will likely be the superior version. GOD I hope they orchestrate the soundtrack because keyboards really drag down the experience of Kouichi Sugiyama's classical style.

I'm anticipating it somewhat less now that someone randomly dropped some major plot spoilers on me yesterday.

As in now that you know some plot secrets you're less excited?  Or as in you don't much like what you heard about the story?

I think the important thing to take note of here with all this is that tomatoes are actually a huge pain to grow.

True, but he specifically said he didn't want XVI to have any sequels or follow-ups, which is definitely not going to happen. It could still feel complete on its own, but it will have supplemental material.

I just fought a Tainted Monster this weekend that was one level below my characters and it was one-shotting them.

You have given me heart, Lian.  I'll play it after NNK2 after all, according to plan!
But if you wait til part 3 is announced, you can play other games meanwhile!

Couldn't I play those games after finishing 2?

If Cold Steel 1 and 2 tell a "complete" story the way Sky 1 and 2 do, then I'd rather experience it sooner rather than later.

And hopefully CS2 will take me right up to the release of DQXI.

But if you like it in KH then you could like it in other games, surely?

i want it to ACTUALLY be a new finished game. 15 was unfinished and rushed , i also want it to be a stand alone game not like part 2-3 etc, Or a million downloads after .

Never going to happen.  Every mainline FF from now until forever will have DLC, sequels, supplemental games/chapters, etc etc.  It's the new normal, may as well accept it.  A lot of the time the supplemental content is fantastic, so it's not inherently bad.
