    Haven't played FFXIV, but I did love FFVIII.   I had never considered the series, but I saw a friend playing it and saw that first cutscene, and I just had to play.  I did practically nothing else until I had finished :)

    My best experience? When I completed the first dungeon with three of my most precious friends. Not only there was a feeling of achievement... But also, those people I knew from outside the game, I knew I would always be able to count on them in this Realm as well.

    And I was right. They were faster and achieved a lot more things than me in the following months, but they were always there giving me a hand and cheering me on. When I reached my first level cap and joined them in the end game content, while I expected it to be the end, it actually became a Rebirth and new beginning, a new world and new objectives revealing to me.

    So whenever I need a push, I think about that first dungeon we tackled together, and our friendship that never failed and helped us complete all those trials ever after.

    It's really hard to choose just one event out of all the wonderful experiences I've had with the series, but I guess I'll have to go all the way back to the very first Final Fantasy I played... That would be Final Fantasy VII like with many others. I still remember going to the gamestore with my littlebrother, pondering whether we should grab VII or VIII... We ended up buying VII and I can clearly remember we were determined to name Cloud "Jack".

    I think one of the most memorable moments had to be when the two of us wandered to Wall Market for the first time. We laughed when we managed to get "Jack" inside Honey Bee Inn and got some sexy lingerie for the poor bugger... And "Jack" in a dress and a wig? That's was simply silly! I think the whole Wall Market -experience as a whole is what I treasure the most. It was the first Final Fantasy for me and I got to share the experience with my brother.

    I never got to play the MMORPGs of the FF series, However Playing most of the Single player games The best character I've EVER played in ANY video game was Vincent Valentine. With the Feel of Devil may cry but the story & character progression of a FF game there's no doubt in my mind that Vincent Valentine was the best video game character I've played to date.

               Some may not call me a true fan since ive only played 2 final fantasies but god damn it FFXII makes me wish I had played the original through 10. I was in the 4th grade at the time and my friend gave me his collectors edition of FFXII. He was older than I was, i think in the 6th grade and so we set of on an adventure playing the game. I still remember doing the Thextera hunt and dying to it and having to restart the whole game because i forgot to save. You got to understand though, first Final Fantasy game and I was in the fourth grade.

                I was amazed at the freedom of cities and the vast number of zones i could travel to. I remember grinding all 6 characters, Vaan, Basch, Batheir, Ashe, Penelo, Fran to 50+ in the viera's home world in the wood to get past a giant bomb boss. Then realizing that i didn't have to defeat it to keep going x(. I remember facing gilgamesh and how much fun it was but it SUCKED having every armor peace but his gloves :(

                  For me the greatest moment for me was the whole damn game, my first Final Fantasy experience, the story, the gambit system, the variety of options for me to choose. It was amazing, especially the ending. It was so tear jerking to see the party i spent 4 years with. 4 years of pheonix downs, potions, quickenings, leveling, emotional cutscences, bringing my laptop out in the living room and going through walk throughs to obtain all the rare weapons, obtaining all the rare weapons, collecting all the materials for the rare wepaons, running into strong espers at low levels and dying and saying to myself,"well guess im not going back in there for a long time.", gilgamesh,bosses, f&*k the final boss cause he has like one hundred million forms but i still loved it.ALL OF FRIGGIN IT MAN ALL TEH CHOCOBOS.

                       That party I spent so much time with had now broken up. I still remember when I came back to it after having forgotten about it for about a year being upwards level 60-67 and saying, "I'm not even half done with this game." and finally beating it. When my friend gave me this game it still had the price on it and it read, "$29.99" and i remember after 30 minutes of game play, I remember thinking to myself how could this game be only 30 bucks, I considered myself so god damn lucky. I thank myself to this day for my friend giving me this game for my birthday. The joy and experiences I got out of the FFXII story make it priceless to me.

    I was really enthralled by the story of  FFXIII.  I am of the minority that enjoyed that game.  The story really gripped me and had me playing the game for a long while.

    Best experience was in in FF7 where I was in the sub the whole time morphing the monsters for stat boost.


    When it came time to fight Sephiroth 1v1 as Cloud, it was so satisfying to kill Sephiroth with 1 omnislash, each hit doing 9999 damage.

    My first Final Fantasy game was FF8.  Then I tried FF7 and loved it and played every Final Fantasy there after.  I love Final Fantasy!

    My best expirience with the Final Fantasy is the music. It is beautifull!

    My favorite thing was not having to have alts, just switching to another job to keep playing as something different. Friends need you to tank? No problem! Heal? I can do that too!

    First walking into Crystal Tower. The feeling of how small you are compared to what is essentially a basement. Imagine what the rest of the dungeon is going to be like?

    I loved when I started up  FFXIV for the first time watch the intro that brought me to tears of its beautiful music and cinematic and right after when I made my first character going around bashing enemies with my axe this is what made me realize this game was amazing and I could not stop!

    It's meeting my Free Company.  The game was hollow by itself, I knew it was missing something.  I always played the healer or support class, but when you don't have someone to constantly play with only strangers through an automated placement system you don't grow that attachment you want to.

    Then I met my free company, and it gave me that purpose that my job class desired.  I was able to support others with my heals and help push them further to achieve the goal of making us stronger.  

    We were not a close family, but it was a family that was able to talk with each other and joke while we grouped for dungeons or any other event.  That's what makes the games so special and fun.

    When I was a kid and rented Final Fantasy 2, and I got to the point where Kain betrayed me. Oh Kain, how could you :(


    Alternatively, FF3 (6). The entire thing.

    My favourite moment so far has been getting my Black mage's storyline finished


  • crowfeatherscrowfeathers Member Posts: 1

    My favorite experience has to be learning Titan Extreme Mode with my Free Company. We spent hours laughing together as Titan flattened us, blew us up, and punted us off the edge. Wiping to a dungeon over and over has never been so much fun, and I feel blessed to have a group of people so awesome that we can bash our heads against a frustrating fight and still enjoy ourselves. Honestly, the whole time I've spent with them has probably been my best experience in FFXIV, but doing Titan Extreme with them is the most recent thing that stands out for me.

    My greatest moment was when I beat titan Hard-mode and was able to continue the quest to get my relic weapon!

    Omg! my best experience in FFXIV was the whole two hours that my friend let me play xD

    I wish I could play more  -.o   :D

    My favorite memory was playing on the NES and staying up a couple days at a time with my aunt teaching her how to play, was very cool having an "older" family member that loved FF too. She's excited to try this and she's in her 60's now.

    I have been skeptical in subscribing to the game, so I had only started playing a few days ago.  Today as I was wandering through the Central Shroud doing tasks that would normally feel mundane in other MMO's, it struck me that I was inside of a world that made me feel like I was experiencing Final Fantasy.  It was no Final Fantasy game in particular, yet it was all of them.  There is no particular moment yet in A Realm Reborn that causes me to reminisce about the Final Fantasy games I have played in my youth, yet I feel like I am always experiencing a small part of them all with my journeys so far.

    Our Favorite moment, was when me and my friends first bought the game ,12 hours later we finally looked at the clock. We were shocked, what had felt like 3 hours at most, was almost 12 very short felt hours. The mind blowing pure fun, we had in the game itself, made time just slip through our fingers.
