The ff8 card game: any similar things?
« on: April 14, 2011, 11:18:37 AM »
So I was thinking about this game recently and I realised the card game was the thing I remembered most fondly about the whole thing.

I loved the fact it was integrated early in the game. I liked the fact there were so many cards to collect. I liked the fact the cards and rules changed as you explored the world. I loved the strategy involved. But mostly I loved the fact it was present alongside a normal rpg experience.

So I was wondering if anyone had any game reccomendations which I might enjoy in a similar way. Doesn't have to be exactly the same thing just a similar side story about collection or something.

Thanks

Wait, there was an RPG bonus game in Triple Triad: The Three Disc Extravaganva?  I don't think I ever realized that.

The FF9 card game?

I thought some indie developers did make an actual software or internet one, no?

The FF9 card game sucked. You didn't get anything for playing it, and gameplay was annoying based on random chance.

It didn't matter to me; I liked both card games at first; but later players weren't worth the effort.  Maybe I just sucked at it, and kinda forgot about the game half way through, then fell behind, but man, the rules killed me in later FF8.

That's why when you go in space you spread the local rule of "no rule"

Tetra Master had an online version accessible through Playonline (A dumb client you need to flip through to play FFXI), but they shut down the servers for Tetra Master and massively downsized Playonline a few months ago. Now it's just an annoying client used for the sole purpose of getting in the way of you opening FFXI.

So pretty much exactly what it was like before.

Yeah, it's actually quite a good little strategy game. The in-game payoff for playing is quite high to boot. So it's got that going for it.

I enjoyed playing Tetra Master in FFIX. And I don't even like to play with cards... I like to collect them.

Yeah, Tripple Triad was great. IMO, it's the best minigame in the series, not that that's a great undertaking. Although, I REALLY loved the Chocobo digging and searching minigame in FF9. Those two are really the only minigames I go out of my way to play in the series. I stay as far away from Blitzball (ie: Madden: Zanarkend edition) and Chocobo Racing/Breeding as I possibly can. Tetra Master is kinda neutral. Not terrible, but it just seems like a less strategic version of Triple Triad.

Oh... and that Xenogears card game *shudder*

It's the only reason to ever play FF8, IMO.

Not that this has anything to do with the topic at hand, but Pokemon HeartGold's Voltorb Flip is addicting as shit. I probably dumped 10 hours or more into that thing.

You won some shitty prizes and more cards for winning that tournament that was part of the main plot didn't you? That's something right?

Yeah, at one point in the game (and ONLY one) You get the chance to win a Rebirth Ring if you come in first place.
