    I played through it quite recently, it's actually really difficult in parts, I have no idea how I managed to get so far on it at 6 years old. I have a 6 year old sister now and there's no way that she'd understand it. I must have been a smart kid :smug:

    It is one of my all-time favourite games though.


    Edit: FF7, not 12. I mis-read that

    I always thought 10 was the best for gameplay and story, followed closely by 8. 7 was of course really good! I forgot how whiny Cloud was though haha.

    You were six in 2006? And you can now type? You've made me feel terribly old.

    It was pretty tough, I remember really not liking the gambits to begin with, but once I had properly figured out how to use them I thought they were great - meant you could play so tactically! My boyfriend's favourite is FF X but I wasn't such a fan of the turn based battle system, just felt so slow paced in comparison

    Only ever played crystal chronicles one, on the gamecube and the one on the DS, I think it was a rehash of FF3. Crystal Chronicles is awesome though, used to play it so much as a child. More of a kingdom hearts person though

    Sorry, I was talking about FF7. I mis-read your post. I've never played XII. The only recent one that i've played is XIII, and whilst I enjoyed the story, I found the gameplay kind of tedious and repetitive.

    I think the turn based were better for strategy then XII and XII 1 + 2 as you had to plan ahead and not just press attack and switch paradigms. I am looking forward to the FFX HD Remake though!

    I replayed 7 again relatively recently and got stuck at the same bit I got stuck at when I had played it as I think probably a 10 year old.

    I thought the story was slowly getting boring as it went on, mainly being because of Hope complaining for ages :L

    I loved the sphere system in FFX. FFVII had the best storyline with FFX I think. I've been disappointed with everything past FFX, though FFXIII-2 has been slightly better once you got into it.

    I think I might have too actually, although not on a boss or anything like that, just on a part where I couldn't work out where I had to go next. But back in 1997 I didn't have the internet to help me

    After Rocket Town, with no prompting or clues or anything, you have to go deep into the Temple of the Ancients. How people worked that out without the internet I don't know!

    Yeah, I guess it did. I never actually finished it though. I think most of all I just disliked the linear gameplay. The walk > fight > walk > fight. I much prefer the open-world style of the earlier ones, there was so much more too them than just the fighting.

    Well I got bored of it, went back to it 6 months later only to find out I had 30 minutes left to do in the game haha. And yes! The open world made it soo much better! like on VIII second disc onwards, you can literally go anywhere you want.

    I loved 8, I want to play it again but it seems impossible to find a disc or downloadable version that will run on a modern PC
