    FFIX was good from what I remember, but unlike most other FF games, I only ever played through it once.

    It felt more like a classic fantasy world compared to other FF games during that time which had modern aspects to them. I enjoyed the different tone and characters. Sadly, I didn't manage to beat it when I was young.

    I liked VII because of the materia system and how it allowed you to customize your characters. VIII tried to go for the same thing with the GFs and junction, but VIII was not a game that I was ever able to beat because of one specific boss battle where you had to use physical attacks so as not to hurt Rinoa(?). I had been neglecting my characters physical attacks and not improving their weapons, so when I got to this battle I was dealing like 70dmg and getting slaughtered pretty quickly.

    The materia system was one of the best. I feel like VIII tricked me because you are able to feel powerful by utilizing the GFs and junction but on that same boss you brought up I kept getting demolished. Eventually I got tired of it. I watched the rest of the story on Youtube lol.

    I never bothered to watch the rest of the story and it's been so long that I've forgotten most of what happened in that game aside from the major twist toward the end, the one relating to the characters' backstories.

    IX was good and I should have played it more than once. X I sort of liked right until I got to the final fight with Sin and realized that I couldn't actually lose the battle. XI I never played and XII had potential, good music, but was not that enjoyable of a game despite being set in Ivalice. I haven't played any FF games since XII. I guess I just outgrew them or the series changed too much to really motivate me to get the hardware to keep up with them. I'm probably going to play a translation of FFV again sometime soon that I have emulated for the SNES. I also have VI which I've never played at all and everyone says that's the second best one, but something about it doesn't interest me that much... probably because it's set in a more technologically advanced world.

    I actually wish I had hung on to my playstation and games, they had a lot of good RPGs and I'd love to be able to play Metal Gear Solid again even though that game had some parts that really freaked me out (Master Miller being the one that spooked me the most).

    X is one of my favorites. I didn't mind that you couldn't lose the boss fight. I'm so used to ridiculous late game boss fights that getting thrown a free pass now and then is fine by me. XII and XIII were decent but didn't blow me away. The ones before VII I've barely messed with. I have heard that VI is amazing though.

    Playstation 1 & 2 had a huge flood of RPGs and other good games. MGS is the biggest Playstation series that I never quite got into. People love it and it seems entertaining and well written for a video game. I think I'm just not good at stealth games.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I played through it but I was expecting the game to be a lot longer than it was because VII was such an incredibly long game. I seem to remember getting through X relatively quickly and at low levels, but something about most the characters didn't really click with me save for Lulu... I used her a lot.


    One of my favorite RPGs was a Playstation exclusive (Breath of Fire IV, had some of the best music on the console). Star Ocean 2 was pretty good too, I just never beat it because I remember it being very difficult at a part that was still on the first disc. It's a shame, because I paid I think $10 for it brand new from Sam Goody (which later became FYE and started only selling Anime related stuff).


    The original MGS is the only one I've ever played. I was going to try to play MGS3 on 3DS but I had way too hard of a time seeing anything due to the small screen size and gave up on it shortly after I started it. I never bothered to play MGS2 but I know the general plot of it and it's creepy because it seemed to anticipate the moment of society that we're in currently in a couple of ways, namely with stuff about "fake news" and information overload.

    Lulu had a cool design and they've never had anyone else quite like her in an FF game. For me FFX worked. It was one of the first RPGs with voice acting though. That may have made it an odd experience for some. Cheesy dialogue doesn't usually bug me lol.

    There were so many RPG series back then. Almost too many to choose from. Most of them I never got far into because of difficult bosses or whatever else. Finding new games that cheap is really rare.

    I know the MGS2 scene you are referring to. It only gets creepier as time goes on lol.

    Yeah it's especially creepy having seen the last five years or so of American society and how radically everything has changed in just five years.

    But I also read George Orwell's 1984 and realized that this was also prescient about our society in 2016 and has also only gotten more and more real in the most recent years.

    1984 seems like a brutal book to read. It's one of the most depressing movies. Worthwhile though for how applicable a lot of it is to our current times. 1984 and what was being said in MGS2 are both essentially about creating context or controlling the narrative, managing people's perception of reality.

    So my favorite piece of music from a Video Game isn't a game I've played but I love the intro to it and that is - I Expect You To Die

    I love the James Bond theme to it and the general feel of it is so GOOD! It felt like being transported into a Bond movie.

    Despite being a huge MGS fan, I've never played Portable Ops.

    I'm shocked they put such a great song on a portable game. Would have been nice if it got a console remaster like they did for Kingdom Hearts games like Chain Of Memories, Birth By Sleep, and Dream Drop Distance.

    They did it for MGS Peace Walker but since the original creator and director didn't make Portable Ops, they skipped remastering it.

    Probably the best ending credits theme to any game I've played
