I am so glad I never played played past the Blitzball part.
I'm replaying it right now. I found this video while looking for hints. I think it's a good game, but the voice acting is very uneven. There's also a cringe inducingly dated Macarena joke not too long after this (it was obviously shoehorned into the english translation). I hate Tidus as a protagonist, but the other characters are OK.
Playing it first time on the remaster set. I'm right about here, 15 hours in and about to give up. It starts out with promise; the battle system is great, well streamlined, and the story seems at first like it could develop into something good. But it doesn't, you quickly realize that all the game is going to do is harp on tidus's daddy issues and about the coming of sin, and how yuna must sacrifice herself for sin, and how it's inevitable blah blah blah fuck. Every character is terrible except for wakka.
I named tidus meg ryan. Fuck him with a thousand suns.
Divinity original sin just came out, coming from that to this overwrought pos was like a pimp slap of boredom
I beat all of FFX, and I remember only three things about it:
1. Lulu's tits.
2. There was some kind of Quidditch game starring that incest guy from Final Fellatio: Rikku Deepthroat, and...
3. DEATH METAL FINAL MONSTER SONG!
That's it. I think I spent, like, eighty hours on the game, and that's all I got out of it.
It was still more memorable than IX, though. IX had a couple furries and a tree, I think.
It gets great after Luca, shame. You missed out.
FFX is a great game, easily one of the best I've ever played. I replayed it in HD a few months back, and yes, it's voice acting is shoddy by today's standards, and it's English lip syncing is non-existent, save at certain parts they chose to fix it on. But it does have a damn good (albeit confusing) story for a JRPG with a memorable cast, a nice soundtrack, a fun battle system, some pretty great sidequests, a cool leveling system, an AWESOME summoning system, and a satisfying conclusion.
I know there's a whole legion of people who hate it with a passion, and a lot of people blame it for the start of the FF franchise's downfall. But honestly, as someone who's played them all and was playing FF games several entries before FFX came along (my first was FFII(IV) on the SNES), and has since went back and replayed them all, I have to say X is one of the better ones, even if it did do away with the series hallmark of an overworld map with an airship you could fly.
I liked Final Fantasy X, but I wish the story had stuck closer to the original draft about a hero trying to get home in time to reconcile with his dying father. You can see traces of that in the final game, but it's overshadowed by the trans-dimensional sea monster and the leiderhosen Blitzball and da teachings of Yevon, ya?

I'm so glad I skipped every final fantasy game ever.
Wish I had skipped every post you ever made, ever. I wasn't being serious about cats, yet you took it that way. How quaint you are in your foolish ways. Consider.
