Thrills aren't scary. Nemesis jumping out a fucking window while you're walking down a hallway is a thrill, not a scare. A boulder triggering down a hill while you walk is a thrill. Now silent hill knew how to play on fear.  The whole environment was meant to frighten you. The white noise on the radio, the way enemies did things, pyramid head.....now that's fear inducing. Oh, and let's not forget the transition to hell...fucking freaky shit. Resident Evil keeps me entranced, I want to continue the story. Silent Hill on the other hand, I always was timid to advance further, always feared what would come next. However that made me want to advance further. I'll always play RE games for the fun of it, but silent hill is where to go for a truely frightening gaming experience.

I guess I'll make a list like most of you. Here it is, from best to worst.

XII, IX, VIII, XI, VI, VII, XIII, X, VI, V, IV, X-2, III, I, II.

Yes, that is FFXI as 4th best. It was actually really awesome, from a story/lore point of view, and had some of the most fun and addicting gameplay out of all of them. Also, X-2 has some of the best combat of the series.
How come VI shows up on your list twice?

I hate capcom. They keep fucking Megaman square in the ass, but RE still makes me hard. This is a good year for RE games. I hope you guys will attempt coop runs, as I will gladly play with anyone here.

Robo's theme and Gato's theme are the epitome of awesome character themes.

Also relevant, CC's battle music wasn't THAT bad, it just sounded a little funkier then the game wa....no wait CC was pretty funky itself. It fit just fine.

One thing I can always chuck up to IX for making stupid was that final boss from way out in left field. I mean what the hell? I can remember ever final boss in every ff game ever, except in IX.  I just remember you had that really fucked up move that hit you with like every status ailment ever known. I remember hades, ozma, garland, trance kuja, but who the fuck was that final boss?

Fuck, now I wanna play VIII again. It's like when you have mcdonalds, you know it sucks, there are real burgers you can get elsewhere, but sometimes you just need to have it again to remember why you don't eat it.

Also, I can't remember who now put me over the edge to actually post about the excessive flamebaiting. But if you feel the need to state it's not you, that shows a certain level of doubt and maybe you should be more careful with your posts anyway.

Nah. I never need to be careful about posting the awfulness of FF8. I'm not intentionally flaming anyone, but I will shout from the rooftops about the terribleness of that game.
Generally speaking, it's not flamebaiting when a large portion of people agree with your comment. You may like VIII, but it's pretty well regarded as having obe of the more sucky story development processes in a ff title, and by far the worst gimmick (draw) in all of them. Sure some people like the game, but lard hasn't gone and insulted anyone about their poor taste, lol. But seriously, I didn't mind VIII, it was a good romp when I first got it.

I much preferred when he dropped in on a Malboro personally ;)

Not sure if you know which part I mean, but I'm damn sure I have no idea what you're talking about :)

As far as worst FFs go, its probably no surprise I'm going to point to FFXIII. Linear to a fault, unlikeable cast of characters, fairly simple story made unnecessarily complicated by confusing terminology, battle system that plays itself.
He was making a joke, you're referring to a key point in the third disc. I like his reference better, too, cuz malboros fucking sucked ass in VIII, and if you wanted doomtrain, you had to fight some. Odin popping up to drop one for you was ALWAYS awesome.

Laguna's battle music was awesome. Hell most of VIII's music was pretty good. Draw system aside, its gameplay mechanics weren't terrible, just easy to abuse, like pulling a long summon out to mash through selphie's limit break choices (still haven't landed on the end). Just don't grow too attached to squall as a character, he takes a nosedive later.

I wanna see what the regular fights look like. I mean special boss stuff is special, but you'll spend 75% of the game beating up standard thugs. That's what I'd like to have tried. They could have taken a lesson from the ffxiii-2 demo.

Who doesn't appreciate Tingle? I mean cmon, even in smash bros melee he was awesome, trolling people by inflating his balloon at the worst times. Tingle is great.
2697  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: January 12, 2012, 05:56:01 AM
Hey, 14 main titles and only NOW they have a person dressed up as a chocobo? Honestly, it could have been worse. At least she makes it work.

Your ps2 may be having an issue. I know some old ps1 games of mine didn't work well on my ps2 at times, like breath of fire 3. Try it on a ps1, or a different ps2 if you can (or a ps3). Otherwise idk dude, game hates you.
2699  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play an RPG for in one sitting on: January 11, 2012, 12:34:13 AM
Depends on the game. I managed to blitz through Nier in one 20 hour romp for the first completion. I can essentially play any game til I get bored, hungry, tired, or find something better to do. I've put 24 hour runs in before, with ample potty breaks and nourishment. It's just got to be engrossing, otherwise I'll normally do 2-3 hours on a game.

I'm mildly scared that this is the closest I'll ever get to an actual chrono sequel, so I'm praying it'll be good.
