Oh I know there are some Final Fantasy freaks out there. No I don't mean the horrible "Spirits Within" Movie
I'm talking RPG and the Advent Children Movie. Post up your favorite one and why and who you think really changed the aspect of that game. And which one changed the whole genre of the series? And why is there a character named Cid in almost all of them?
Disclaimer: My whore's. You are welcome to post but try to stay on topic haha Even though it's almost impossible for some us to do.
Anyways, I would think that FFVII is the breaking point for the series. They revolutionized the gameplay of the RPG genre simply by making the switch to 3D animation. Even to this day, FFVII is one of the highest rated video games of all time. It's also one of the rarest to find. If you do happen to find one, a used one goes for about $100+ I'm lucky enough to have an original copy from it's release. Squaresoft also used Sony's PlayStation to enhance their cinematic cut-scenes which left peoples jaws dropped compared to the SNES versions.
Although the game doesn't have the strongest story line but it does have the most interesting with plenty of twists. The mini games were also a new addition to the series which kept players busy while trying to figure out where to roam on the massive map.
Also the turn based battle system kept from the others with the addition of limit breaks and more summons pumped up the fun factor in battles. The addition of characters from FFVII to the game Ehrgiez didn't help with critics as it failed miserably. Although it is now a classic and rare.
I also think Yuffie could've been left out of the game.
