To keep it short, ever since the disappointment of FFXIII I've really felt that the Final Fantasy series was, for me, effectively dead. This was / is especially heartbreaking for me because the original FF on NES was the absolute first JRPG I ever played. I still have my copy of the Nintendo Power game guide for it around here somewhere.
The best moment of FFXIV for me was when I realized that the game is not only a very well done MMO, but is also a worthy game in the Final Fantasy series. The music, the visuals, the sound, the story, the game play... it all reeks of classic FF (or an evolution thereof). When I reached level 2 and heard the victory fanfare play for the first time, when I saw Biggs & Wedge show up, when I finally got my chocobo... I knew that as a lifetime fan of the FF series, I was finally home after nearly a decade of one crushing disappointment after another.
AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!
So, Google is choosing to honor the birthday of a woman who not only admitted to admiring Bin Laden, a man responsible for the deaths of thousands of civilians, but openly praised (the Muslim) god for him. She also admired murderers such as Castro and Mao Zedong, and racist extremists such as Malcolm X. She was also a Marxist who openly wished that the United States would be destroyed.
This is how pathetic things have become. An American company is celebrating the birth and life of somebody who opposed everything which allowed them to become successful in the first place.
People like Yuri Kochiyama should be condemned, not celebrated. She was a disgusting human being who led a life spreading hatred and praising mass murderers, while actively seeking to bring death and destruction to the people of the U.S. Our nation and our world are better off without her.
I played Final Fantasy XIV and I LOVED the music in the pugilist starting zone. Final Fantasy is one of my favorite frachises of all time, and the music is a big part of that. Having that type of music in an MMO flooded me with nostalgia and how much I missed the series.
My favorite moment from the single player games would definately have to be finally earning omnislash from the golden saucer arena area in FF7. was so happy I got it.
Just about my favorite thing about XIV was coming back after the first try wasn't so great and finding myself running straight to 50, having a great time. I'm rarely surprised when it comes to games like this, and the game was so revitalized that I just couldn't help but play it.
Specifically speaking, my favorite moment would have to be a time in Haukke Manor with a bunch of PUGs. We pulled way too much; a sideroom, a couple of the screaming succubus ladies, just way too much, and the between me popping stuff and one of the DPS folks pulling out a healerpet, they actually managed to keep me up through it.
It was a great experience, and everyone was on my server (!), so we all hopped in a guild together and played onwards from there. Rare to find a great group. One of my favorite in recent memory.
I loved being able to ride the chocobos!!!!!!!!!!
they have been my fav char in all of the FF games XD
I think the best part of FFXIV for me was beating the Coil Bosses for the first time. Such a great feeling of accomplishment after so ... many ... wipes!
i simply love the combat
My favourite experience was definitely FFX.
One of the best plotlines I've ever encountered to this day.
Wonderfully crafted characters, each bringing something unique and tasteful to the table.
The final parts were incredible.
Tidus finally confronting his long absent father, Jecht, very charged dialouge, ending with Tidus's simple, very loaded 'I hate you'.
Tidus's goodbye to Yuna was also heartbreaking to watch, as the two found comfort in each other throughout the story.
To this day I'd recommend FFX to other people...
My most memorable moment is during the first 2 weeks of launch.
Sitting at my PC eager to log in for 4 hours straight, clicking through error 90000 and then finally get in at last... never to log out again. xD
