But will Squeenix make a "classic" FF again?

I don't think that they want to at this point. Doing remakes of their classic titles has proven being more than enough for everyone, old and new fans alike.

Is it sad I'm looking forward to 10 in HD?

Is not one of my favorites but it is one the best JRPGs that Square has done. So no, is not sad. Though, the only sad thing if you want to mention one is that FFX is a 10+ year old game and is considered to be "the last great FF".

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).

I'm curious, but what are for you these FFs that you consider being teen-like J-drama?

I'm kinda surprised I gotta spell this one out, but anything Nomura has got his grubby hands on, generally.  13 and 13-2 being the worst offenders for unrealistic scenarios being played out by unrealistic characters.  I don't understand this need to have characters brood half the fucking game.  Was Hope ever happy at any point of the game?

^Like I said, I was just curious to know because to me the whole teen-like J-drama sounds more fitting for FFVIII or X.

Dunno. In the time that everyone was excited for FFXII I think I was having fun with GameCube games... though, I always remember not being interested in playing it.

The only time I played XII was in the demo that came with Dragon Quest VIII, and it was so boring. It is worth mentioning that I got Dragon Quest VIII when the game was 4 or 5 years old at the time.

After that I waited around 4 fucking years for FFXIII and I didn't get it on day 1 because to me it seemed like a bad copy of Digital Devil Saga, but I bought a year later because of all the hate it was getting after a year of it's release... played it, had a good time with and then sold my copy to get inFamous 2.

Now I want play XIII again thanks to XIII-2 but really I should use that money to buy Nier.

FF8 had a major advantage there... it wasn't voiced. :D

FFX could have been made significantly better of Tidus was knocked by a frying pan to rework his personality.

I would have killed myself if FFVIII was voiced.

Seriously, Yuna should have been the main focus there since the beginning. But the way the story of FFX is told with Tidus makes it one of the best titles in the series too.

personally I felt 12 was better than 10

I liked the world better, the combat, the side quests, the sheer amount of things to do, ect

As bad as Tidus's voiceover was, Yuna's was far worse IMO. A friend once walked in while I was playing FFX in a lounge and said something to the effect of, "is this chick for real?" Some of the delivery was so stilted and wooden. Tidus's voice actually was one of the better things going for him.

Instead of sweet and kind, she sounded like a FOB. You could poor ellipses everywhere she talked...like klyde sometimes does. :D (I tease)

 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.... : |

Really? Can you still play it?

But will Squeenix make a "classic" FF again?
 

Four Warriors of Light on the DS and Crystal Chronicles for the Wii seem like the closest they've gotten. Of course that depends on whether you count the FF4 sequel that came out for Wii/PSP.

Is it sad I'm looking forward to 10 in HD?

Nah. It was the last FF I really enjoyed. FF13 wasn't terrible, but I agree with the consensus it's a mid-level game.
I've been avoiding the 13-2 thread because it didn't look like it was spoiler tagged, so I have no idea what the reaction on the board is to it.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Final Fantasy Franchise Review

Best series of reviews I've seen in YouTube. So far there's reviews for FF 1 to 8. Oh and they contains spoilers since there are more retrospectives than just reviews, so yeah.

Piano Opera FF IV/V/VI:

Protect the Espers ! (FF VI)
Searching for Friends (FF VI)
My Home, Sweet Home (FF V)
Theme of Love (FF IV)

Released in May 2012 for the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy. Somehow it turn out to be better (IMO) than the last album.

Honestly, I blame the voice director for as much of this as the actress, if not moreso. I think the guy had Yuna's VA record her "Okay" line ONCE and then reused it everytime she needed to say that. Horrible.
