The commercials that Japan got for FFIV are a thing of beauty. Is like Square at that time knew that Final Fantasy was popular enough that the only thing that they needed to do to sell the next title was putting an Ostrich with the Chocobo theme in the background and everyone would buy it.

...and I guess they did since even to this day Square can't stop making a remake everytime they have the chance.

I still remember playing the first FF on the NES when it came out and being simply blown away, wow, it's been a long time...

I wouldnt say I was blown away because by that time I had already played alot of nes rpgs, But I will say I was quite addicted

First one played was... 2/4.  But I remember friends of the family having the first game.  

I'll never forget the bleeps of the battle theme for number 1, but I remember adoring the Troian Beauty theme and "environment" (at the time) in 4.  I learned it on accordion.... : |

Classics.  But will Squeenix make a "classic" FF again?  Is it sad I'm looking forward to 10 in HD?
Hopefully Squeenix can stop with the poor excuse of teen-like J-drama.  It's fucking infuriating and no one likes it unless they're needy/longing virgins (err or something like that).

Eh I dont quite agree with that last part.

Ive been having alot of fun with ff this gen. Pretty much on par with any other I would say.

Ive been playing ff rhythm, and I have to say it moved me emotionally just to listen to all the music again. And then there was ff type zero which I finished not to long ago, which was the best action rpg I played all gen.

I do hope square japan announces some more good rpgs soon

I'm not talking spinoffs (I'd like to play TheatreRhythm myself), and I'm not talking about being emotionally moved by music.  But hey, different strokes.

I think you would be, actually.

I'm in the lump that said it was good, but by no means repayable or "epic"in whatever sense. I however applaud them making woman's hair to look like something other than a bob.

A generalization, but hokay.
