Final Fantasy is 1000 times more kickass than the Matrix.

FF6 Rules.

So b/c the board has so many FF there should be a board for FF only. Give me a break it is a videogame. So are you telling if there were enough Zelda fans or Mario fans they should make a board just for it. I donít think so. Sure FF had a movie made but it went over like crap and Square lost millions on the deal, Sony had to bail the out of debt. But Mario had a movie made after it also, shoot it even had a cartoon as well.

Hey what about Crazy Taxi there are what like 4 of the games now and a movie coming out next summer. Plus the game has a kicking soundtrack. So should it have its own board? I donít think so.

Sure there is a thread in the Videogame board with some 800 posts, but Zelda had on a while back the reached 500 but had to be closes b/c PSX fans started getting into it with N64 fans. True that was a long time ago but nonetheless it showed that we have a lot of Zelda fans here at nightly.

What you said about the music, give me a break. Sure some people may really like the music but is that really a reason to have a board for FF? I really donít think so.

I think since we wonít be seeing be seeing another FF movie, FF is once again just a videogame which is where it should stayÖ

Well, it's a little bit of an understatement to say that FF is "just a video game". You are talking about the most popular RPG series in the HISTORY of video games. No other video game series even comes remotely close to it's popularity and sales. None.

Not Mario
Not Zelda

Nothing

10 titles with an 11th crossing over into the PC genre with online playing. XII on it's heels. There doesn't seem to be any steam loss in the bullet train that is Final Fantasy.

Well bryce, FF isn't like any other game out there. Sure there are many mario games this and that blah blah blah. But I dont think Mario could have his own forum. lol but I think that Final Fantasy could because of the sheer amount of things that can be discussed on it. And it stretches past video games because you dont talk about screen shots or the new game coming out or what not. You talk about playing the game and the experiences you had with it.

FF isn't just a game, to me that's an instult. No 'game' can touch a person the way FF does and i could talk about all day long, heck, i'm doing a full on History presentation on it at Uni and i've had people asking to join my group because of the subject and because they too find it more then just a game. I for one would find no problem discussing every aspect of the X games plus the coming XI and XII and the music and the movie, the spin off games, the merchandise that i collect, fan fiction everything.

So no, I don't think it's just a 'game'.

Why don't we just send Mandard a PS2 along with FF7-FF10...he will get hooked on them, they will consume his life forever, and then he will give us a FF board.

This is a really wonderful post, btw. It speaks volumes. :)

An "instult" eh? Why don't you try getting a life?

I wasn't really concentrating on your typo, more on your assertion that Final Fantasy is in some way more than a game because it touched you in an unclear (thankfully) way. So what is it if not a dull computer game? A way of life, a philosphy, perhaps a religion?

This is why I suggested you might need to get a life as you regard someone describing a computer game as a computer game as a personal insult.

Right, but I guess by that standard atleast 90% of the people here need a life based on their love/passion of Star Wars, Star trek, Buffy, Bond, The Matrix etc etc. Heck, i guess every single person posting here at nightly should go get a life.

So yeah, i do take it as an insult because it's something i'm passionate about, just like the Sar Wars fans who's very existance revolves around those three movies etc. I'm just like someone who's passionate about anything so yeah, i am offended to have it demeaned like that

:Shrugs: if you think i need a life, fine, so do a lot of other people and for now, i'm quite happy with my life it's pretty fun actually.

I'm not a huge video games player like alot of people here, but I have played some of the FF games and they are pretty amazing.
Video games just have a stigma about them, that they are for 'nerds'. If someone said a film, book or piece of music have really changed their lives, you wouldn't think twice. It's just that the subject in question is a video game.
I agree that FF is so much more than a video game. It's a game, a movie, a wonderful music score and a good book all in one.

Yeah, alright, this wasn't called for at all. A person gave their opinion and you turn right around and make fun of them? Come on, are we in 5th grade again?

Tank--want to flip a coin for banner-making dibs?

I've only played FF8, but I've kept up with the other games to a degree through some friends who are avid gamers, and...they're incredible. The Final Fantasy series definitely warrants its own board--comparing it to Mario's just ridiculous. Each game is a completely self-contained world, there's a movie, there's been doujinshi (a form of Japanese manga/comics)...there are so many facets to each game, and you can even see how much Squaresoft's software and graphical capabilities have evolved just in the last 3 or 4 games--it's amazing. This would definitely be a popular board, and I'm all for it. :)

Actually TR was the one who asked for it, if it were to happen it would be he to thank for it, so I personally think he would have first dibs on a banner, haha. :)

And Jason, If other people want to make banners, I'm all for that. Less work is always high on my priority list.
