Who hates IV?

I'm not a fan of SNES IV (on-rails FF is bad FF), but Complete Collection on PSP is literally a perfect Final Fantasy.  One of the best FF experiences I have ever had.

Me, with an emboldened passion akin to the fires of the sun. Fuck that game, fuck the red wings, fuck paladerp Cecil, fuck Rosa, double fuck Kain and his braindead backstabbing traitorous ass, and screw the developers for making Tellah bite the dust, those fuckung Spoony Bards!

TASTY!

In all seriousness, I just didn't care for IV. I played the ps1 version that came with chrono trigger, and it had some really strange issues that started my dislike of it. I played the gba port which was A LOT better, but the story still blew chunks imo. Kain was always a twat, Rosa was always all "oh my goodness, I'm a such a waste of strong lead, Cecil as a paladin was just meh, Tellah was awesome til he started losing stats as he leveled...I just can't remember liking much of anything aside from Rydia becoming a badass and FuSoYa having the funniest name ever.

On topic (FINALLY), did anyone mess with the multiplayer beta stuff in XV?

TASTY!

I didn't get into the beta, sadly.

I feel like I really must have missed something with XV, seeing so many of you love it, because I hated it. It's almost at the bottom of my list.

Me too (though XIII is still worse...), but I haven't commented in this thread in a while because I decided to stop beating that dead horse.  I've already said my piece about the game.

@Arvis Apologies if I made you feel that way earlier in the topic! I'm sure that wasn't my intention. :) And yeah, I actually loved XII even before Zodiac!

No problem!  Being such a huge fan of XII, do you prefer TZA, or the original Vanilla?

I haven't played enough of TZA yet to have a definite opinion. Overall, I'd definitely say TZA is an improvement and makes a lot of really great fixes. The only thing I find weird, as convenient as the speed-up function is, I feel like it also makes me hurry through the game without enjoying the areas as much as I did last time though. Obviously I could not use it, but it's very tempting sometimes.

XV and XII seem almost diametrically opposed with certain people, as I really like XV and consider XII completely unplayable. XIII also, but to a lesser extent.

Eh, I think I'd put both in the same ball-park. They're both relatively flawed, particularly in the story department, but their gameplay and worlds - as well as a few memorable characters - make it worth the journey. Yet that gameplay also doesn't seem to sit well with people for various reasons...that I personally don't really get. FFXII I better understood the complaints, but I always felt it was reasonably enjoyable, and a nice twist on the MMO-esque gameplay that usually bores me to tears. If anything, it gave me an idea as to why MMO players put up with the classic psuedo-turn-based combat, since it seems to be more interesting when coordinating with a group rather than fighting solo. FFXV, though, seems pretty fine to me. Reminds me a lot of Kingdom Hearts in the best of ways. Reasonably fast-paced without becoming unwieldy or repetitive; more than a few interesting monsters to fight, especially during hunts; and allies that you don't have to rely on, yet are still useful enough that I don't feel like I'm better off just playing without a party like I do in most other Action-RPGs. And I just loved exploring the fantasy world they set up. It's close enough to the real world that the fantasy twists added a sense of surrealism, and made it a lot easier for me to understand what it must be like to live in their world, often without forcing me to sift through long-winded explanations and dialogue trees (a frequent point of contention I have with Western RPGs, especially considering how many do very little to make their medieval fantasy worlds stand out).

^ Actually, "unwieldy" is EXACTLY how I would describe XV's combat. Between the floatiness of the dodge mechanic, the chaotic aiming of pulling off special moves, and the sheer amount of stuff you need to pay attention to, I just can't wrap my head around it.

Also @Arvis I never played Dimensions, unfortunately.
