FFT. KH2 was pretty good, but FFT is an all time great game.

Tactics is probably my favorite rpg from the psx era, or at least my most repeatedly played for sure. KH2 got 1 playthrough and it wasn't even on hard mode. No contest.

Eagerly awaiting Chrono Trigger vs FF XIII-2 because why not.

TASTY!

That one wouldn't fly because you can actually make a comparison between them beyond 'is an RPG made in Japan'.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Now I feel like my comment got misinterpreted because I was referring to the Ys Chronicles vs. Shadow Hearts: Covenant.

Hm well yes we got a number of votes for what was technically the upcoming battle which is fine, as Klutx was voting for Shadow Hearts vs Ys Chronicles, where Shadow Hearts wins 1 - 0

Well lets see, ok I can put this together, it ooks like FF Tactics is smashing through KH... 2 - 0 or 3 - 0, 4 - 0 FF Tactics against KH2.

Also those didn't get their box arts, so this is going to be a big post but I'm including both FF Tactics and KH2 here for posterity.





So now we're jumping ahead some, but anyway votes for other games mentioned are still ok at any time. I have been using italics to indicate the "next" one and just regular font for current or past ones.

But yes lets jump ahead again now... to.... a current battle which is

Chrono Trigger vs FF13-2


vs FF13-2



With the next battle being between Tales of Symphonia and Nier

CT was never really my thing and FF13-2 was better than people give it credit for. So I'll volunteer to be the lone FF13-2 vote.

CT is overrated, but XIII-2 is somehow even MORE overrated.  By like... a lot.

CT: Great, SNES-era RPG whose influence on the genre is felt to this day.
XIII-2: Worst Final Fantasy ever made (including the early NES titles).

Not much of a competition.

XIII-2 was not worse than X-2.  That's not possible.

but yeah. CT (without even getting into gameplay and story) wins on influence along

I can believe XIII-2 was worse. I only played XIII and I didn't finish it.

X-2 was just a bad story, loved the gameplay though.

Chrono Trigger overrated for sure lol. Haven't played that game in a while though.

I will say I can't forgive XIII-2 for utterly mangling the world and lore established by XIII, but I still managed to enjoy the game quite a bit. Not nearly as much as I enjoyed XIII though. (And LR was just terrible and I question the sanity of all y'all who keep saying it was the best in the trilogy)

On the other hand, I also enjoyed Chrono Cross more than Chrono Trigger

Abstaining picking between the two, but just figured I'd share my thoughts.

Considering X-2 is one the best Final Fantasies and one of the best video games ever, and XIII-2 has *almost* nothing good about it, then....... yes, I'd say it's at least possible that XIII-2 is worse than X-2.

I've never played Enchanted Arms, but I know the Legaia games tend to be a bit repetitive.  Great soundtrack on Legaia 2, though, so, I guess I'll vote for that one.

XIII-2's worst crime was terrible story problems. It had a better (well, more polished) battle system, fixed Hope, gave us Caius, and had one of the best boss themes ever (first final boss fight with chaos bahamut)...and the sickest rock-remixed chocobo theme. It was a lot better than XIII overall, but I'd still peg Chrono Trigger as the better game.

I swear to GAWD, if you go through with Nier vs Symphonia I will set your hair on FIYAH!

X-2 took the somber and tragic story of X and morphed it into a teenaged girl dress up party. 

There aren't enough Captain Piccards in the Roddenberry-verse to properly emote the amount of face palms required for that kind of creative decision.
