Decided to go through my favorite game once more. Funny thing is I've started and went through the game a lot but only completed it once. That was a while ago and I used a guide to get absolutely everything. This playthrough's a little different I'm already mostly through the world of ruin but I'm not going to use a guide to get everything or use the coliseum that much to get weapons. Don't plan on defeating the 8 dragons and some other optional side quests. Mostly just getting all the characters and most of the magicite and the question is how hard does one think the final dungeon and boss will be with just doing these.

Not that hard if you use Sabin, Edgar, or Terra or a Setzer equipped with Fixed Dice in any capacity (except for the Warring Triad bosses) unless you are just rocking Celes, Edgar, Setzer only in which case it can be fairly difficult if you don't know what you are doing since you'll only have three parties of 1.

Get all the characters with the best magic/equipment u can get and you'll be fine. the optional extra weapons and stuff is not necessary and possibly op.

Why would you want to skip out on them though? It adds play time, makes the game last longer. I mean, who wouldn't want to play VI for a longer period of time? It's fuckwin.

Agreed!

Meandering around the WOR looking for and doing optional stuff was the coolest part of VI IMO.... But to answer your initial question, I don't think it necessary to really "cross your T's and dot your i's" so to speak to beat it.... I would definately take the time to get a few choice members back in my party before attempting to polish it off.... Just taking the time to get get Terra, Cyan, Gogo and Sabin would be well worth it... none of which require major time-sinks... additionally I would get Shadow as well so long as you saved his hide in the WOB... why? Because shadow is the coolest character to grace a Final Fantasy (what other character, silent protagonists aside, in any RPG is as developed and dimensional as shadow without him ever speaking more then a handful of dialogue and not even being playable for a good half of the game.... genius I tell ya.... genius....)

I love FF6, all the characters were awesome. In fact, I love FF6 so much that I don't get the obession with 7. I was underwhelmed by 7, mostly because I loved FF6 characters so much more.

I agree. VII started out great and then started to lag around the 2nd and 3rd disc.

VI is so great because it exemplifies everything one would want with a RPG: story, gameplay, characters, villian, charm, atmosphere (steampunkish), and music. It has the "it" factor. Granted, today people may not appreciate it as much as the timeless classic as it is. It was groundbreaking for its day and still is a better rpg than current games of the genre.


Something about the game, especially the music, makes me feel like I'm in a dream-like world. It really appeals to the fantasy in my imagination. Current games have not had that same appeal to my those feelings like VI has. I still see the beauty of VI even though I am older and have become harder to please.

Why do you think I'm still rocking a Kefka avatar after all these years?  Of course FFVI is great!  I can't think of another RPG with the same kind of scope, sense of adventure, and great characters.  Maybe the Kiseki series if you look at the series as a whole.

My only real criticism is that it's so easy.  There are so many ways to break the game but no enemies challenging enough to require them.

Easy or not, I still hate the Floating Continent until a few level ups (there's no where else worth levelling by that point), and The Fanatics Tower (?).  Opera House timed segment sucks beans too.

But the Floating Continent is the only legitimately challenging part of the game, filled with level appropriate enemies that actually have challenging move sets instead of some useless variation on hit/critical/weak base-level spell/spell too expensive to cast.

How to win Fanatic Tower (choose one or more):

A) Bring Gau
B) Have 'Reflect'
C) Have accessories that let you attack physically without it being the 'Fight' command

I used to abuse the easy level up trick you could do with bannon early in the game. Just set the commands to memory, edgar auto xbow, bannon health, and terra and sabin fight. Get to the raft part before you fight the octopus, and using a turbo controller, just tape down the confirm buttom. You keep circling around one junction point, and enemies will keep attacking you. A few hours later and you're generally so overpowered the rest of the game is cake. I always giggle hitting the stupid octupus with fire dance and fire 3 at the start of the game.

As for the Tower of Fanatics, bring wall rings and have berserk and rasp/osmose for the last battle. Equip everyone with wall rings and your invincible for 99% of the area. At the boss, hit him with berserk, negating all his spell casting cuz it will heal him on occasion, then just rasp and osmose him til he's out of mp. He'll attempt ultima, but flop cuz he's got no mp, and you win. Also a possibility, learn life 3, which revives you after death, and cast it on someone, then tear him apart, though you'll still want berserk on cuz his physical damage is garbage. His ultima will generally kill anyone under max hp even with shell on. Could also try golem I guess, never did though, cuz rasp/osmose is just so easy.

Fuck no. Rasp/Osmose take forever to bleed away Magimaster's MP (Magimaster has about the same amount of MP as he does HP but MP damage is limited by the MP total cap of just 999, and that's if you can even hit that given that all you have is Rasp (though Osmose can do it if you actually have 999MP but you then need to bleed that all away since it will only drain back what you are missing and it's just slow and tedious no matter which way you do it)). Just use the Berserk trick, nuke his sorry ass, and eat the Ultima with someone/everyone having Life 3 applied.

Also the auto leveling trick is a pretty bad idea as well due to not having Espers and their level up bonuses.

I can relate to that.
I've been a big fan of the series but for some reason the one time I played it I dropped it at the beginning. Then about a month or so before XIII wa released I decided to play it on the PSP but for real this time and I can't believe how invested I became. Unlike most here, I only liked a few characters but everything else is fantastic.

I recommended this game to a friend of mine who is not new to gaming but believe or not, his first RPG was FFXIII, and he wanted to play one of the old school ones, so I recomended VI and he got hooked to it faster than I could've imagined.

VII is still my favorite but I think VI would benefit much more from a remake than VII.
