FFIX doesn't get enough love.
I'm kinda scared when SE touches FFIX again actually. Knowing them they can end up making a sequel for that game and ruin the little magic that the franchise has nowadays, same goes for FFVI.
Oh yeah, I found this and I think you might enjoy it.
OH MY GOD HELLO NEW BEST FRIEND. This is so awesome.
I really, really love FFIX. It captured everything I loved about the series but managed to get in a more Tales-style cast of characters, what with all the humor. Humor is more effective with drama, and drama is more effective with humor, and FFIX understood that. Plus... it has Zidane. I mean come on. You could combine the casts of FF7, 8, 10, 12, and 13, and still they wouldn't have as much charm and personality as FFIX's cast. /clearbias
6 and 9 (and Tactics) are without a doubt the FF's with the best cast of characters, I think.
