I still love my hours and hours and hours of playing Blitzball in FF 10 - over and over again.
FF is by far the most time sonsuming game for me ever - and i think, its still worth every minute of it.
Best moment which I shall never forget :
We gather with our guild at a guildies place for the release of FFXIV ARR.
The moment we were waiting finally arrived and we were all so eager and happy to start.
8 people in 1 room all ganked up and ready to fire the game and start our precious quest.
So the moment arrives we can login and play, we all premade our charachters with the benchmark charachter creation so it was an easy char creation and fast login ^^, so we thought ... we all tried to login and it wouldnt work ... only 1 person managed to login.
At the beginning we were all laughing but after more mins started to count up we were starting to get irritated and getting angry ... the only person who was able to login started to laugh even harder and we began to get more frustrated.
We had some guildies that we were talking with on Teamspeak that were saying that they could log in and others that couldnt also ... the situation was getting more frustrating.
By some miracle I came up with the idea of changing the language setting from automatic to english and suddenly it worked ... I fast passed the info and we all began the quest to fast switch the config and start playing.
At the same time the owner of the house went to grab some food and because we were all starting to laugh of finally being able to login he though we were laughing with him and he went all crazy and unplugged the internet ... !!!
Everyone was in a state of crazyness, we were all shouting WTF you doing and all and we told him we finally were able to login and we knew what cause was and ....
The guy was rushing back to the router to replug it excused himself and finally 1 hour later after some hard waiting we were all 8 peeps ready to start our eagerly quest in the world of Eorzea.
The day after when everyone was more relaxed and stressed out we were all laughing hard about the evening before !!!
What a day ;-)
My most remembered FF moment comes from FF2 (IV). After defeating the archfiend of water you are trying to escape when you get stuck in a trap. The walls begin to slide in and Palom and Porom the twin mages step in front of the walls and cast stone upon themselves to block the walls from crushing the rest of the party. Tellah the sage attempts to cure them but is unable to. At that moment the feeling of sadness and loss overwhelmed me.
That sacrifice was the first time I was moved with such emotion from a story in a video game. I was rather young when experiencing that and it is still a strong memory. I feel that it is one of those things that made me who I am today. Understanding self sacrifice for the good of others in such a way influenced my friendships, my journey, even the way I take care of my wife and children to this day.

Best cinematics in a game I've ever seen. Kudos !
My most unique experience in Final Fantasy XIV was the end of Final Fantasy XIV 1.0 finale event.
We got to play for free got free temporary Artifact gear and an once in a lifetime endgame event campaign with epic battles.
Then ending with an awesome video revealing that it was Bahamut inside the looming Satellite moon all this time and he nearly destroyed everything. They really did an excellent job.
Looking for some cool mates to play with on "Hyperion" server my in game name is "Minks Asura" cya in game.

My best moment, so far, in XIV was soloing the chimera in Cutter's Cry when everyone else died. I was ARC at the time, and I already knew how to kite like a beast because of FFXI. I remember it being down to about 5% when one of the party members (they all were waiting outside of the fight area) said "How are you still alive!?" to which another party member replied, "I guess he's just that good."
It was super fun!
The summer before FF VII came out, I worked for the school district's after school program, as I was one of those that could be trusted to herd the rest of the kids. Hated it, but I knew the pay off would be sweet: My first Playstation and the first FF in a while.
My mother still remembers coming in the next morning after picking it up to wake me for school, only to find me still playing. Pretty sure it was the first time I've stayed up all night gaming.
Oh Aeris, you were the first time a video game ever made me tear up.
