    My favorite, and probably the most memorable, experience with the Final Fantasy series would definitely be back in my college co-ed dorm. I stayed with a roommate and we were awkward with one another. One day, she decided to break out the PS2 and among the games was Final Fantasy X. she told me try it out and I was instantly hooked.  I totally loved the blitzball minigame. Yup, FFX was the icebreaker - and she is now my wife. Thank you FF!

    Definitely the opening scene. Only other game I turned on and had a "this is something different" feeling before the actual gameplay started was COD4.

    Man, character creation in FFXIV took me forever with all the options, even in beta. I spent at LEAST two hours on my first character before I was satisfied. Such a robust interface, and beautiful at that! That's my favorite.

    My favourite moment is learning that there will be a reboot after the disastrous 1.0 launch and that Yoshida was manning the helm. Just learning that brought back hope and the magic of FF. I emailed all my discouraged friends about that planned 2.0 chart - safe to say that everyone was definitely became interested. To this day, 2.0 is a blast. We cannot wait for the new and upcoming content.

    The first moment would be the first day of playing the game. It was pretty overwhelming. I got to play with my boyfriend on his PS3 meanwhile I was on the PC. Thanks to the cross-platform thingy! We explored the gorgeous world and killed stuff together.. It was alot of fun!

    Hard mode titan. While normal titan did a good job in looking incredible, Hard mode titan showed the game wouldn't shy from difficulty. Its over-all design just felt so satisfying seeing a fight with quite rough mechanics that relied on each individual player acting quickly, all while the platform slowly becomes smaller and smaller making things more hectic. Its something very few MMos manage to pull off having a fight appear so 'epic' in scale despite being a fight you simply jump in and verse the boss with.

    I'm wondering can it be any other thing than Sephiroth killing Aerith? At the time it happened I was simply shocked. The thought process was something like: "Oh he's dropping in, this will be an interesting duel...OMG he killed her! You can't do that! That kinda thing doesn't happen in games! Oh my she must get ressurected somehow...." And then the sadness, depression, anger and returning back to the game to make him pay...

    Looking back to it now I go pass the sadness and pain and focus on the fact it made me look at games differently from that point on. So, with all the melancholy, that is still my favourite moment in all the FF games .

    This game is just... EPIC! First game i ACTUALLY save up every month to pay my parents to play and boy it's worth it! I mean i have a crap computer and i get low fps, but i can only imagine how it would look more detailed :') Anyways, i just play casually, after school crafting away, and some questing/grinding. It overall just relaxes me! xD i had already traveled about everywhere and i'm just in love with the world! I'm a HUGE FF fan!!

    I would say the best thing so far is when we a group of friends came over from Tera, to create our FC, that was great.  It is a fun game to play with friends, toward great goals, like trying to gather enough gil for our house.  oh, maybe the first time I did the miqo'te emotes. those still amuse me today.

    Hearing the Final Fantasy theme while creating my first character on FF 14 was pretty sweet.

    My absolute favorite moment in the Final Fantasy franchise came when I was 12 and was playing Final Fantasy 2 (I think it is FF IV in Japan). I had played non-stop and had reached the final battle with Zemus/Zeromus. The game went from epic to mythical! I remember even at my young age (after the party had been defeated when zemus morphed to zeromus, I had developed that emotional connection to Golbez and FuSoYa. When they were defeated and the party were all KO'ed, and all the towns and people that I had visited started praying, it got me emotional. Although it took a few tries, the zeal of the prayers that all sent my characters I utilized personally, allowing me to defeat Zeromus and beat the game... For a game to touch you that deeply (when you are a child no less) can only be done by Squaresoft/Square Enix.... A memory I shant forget! Thank you Square!

    Alright, here we go.

    I was on the Ultros Server, in-game name was Cymdai.

    After capping out in the content, I realized that I had not explored much of the world in the game. Sure, we had seen many of the zones, but not the most beautiful aspects of the zones. We got on our mounts of choice, my friend Kupo Nut and I, and we traversed the in-game world. We went to the most scenic spots we could find in each zone, and checked them out during different phases and weather cycles of the day and night. We weren't just sitting there; we'd craft with the pictures in the background.


    Whether it was the floating palaces off in the distance, or watching sun set on the cliffs and the cascading waterfalls, or even catching the cities in the distance view. It was all so fantastic. The only part that made it better was that we were progressing the entire time. Whether it was leveling the Goldsmith, or the Weaver, or the Leatherworker, we always had a fantastic view.


    During all the leisure time, we formed a stellar guild. The "Veterans of Valkurm", which was arguably the best decision I ever made in game. Because we had slowed down, we forged a community of wonderful, patient, caring players. People. We'd chat and forge friendships while we traveled the world of Eorzea and crafted goods to trade. With the time we spent and the items we crafted, we simultaneously helped gear up our free company.


    The best moment, though, was during our journey (which started as 2 and eventually had as many as 7 of us traveling around and seeing the sights together) when we were traveling to our next location, and the storm began. Without realizing what was happening, we saw him appear. Odin was standing right before us. We had never seen him before, but we knew he was a big deal. Sure enough, we saw hordes of players charging towards him, setting up for the inevitable war that was about to begin. We all switched classes, geared up, and got ready to battle. We hailed the rest of the FC, and everyone teleported and charged. And then the fight began. We did everything in our power, and with dozens of other players, and it was an adrenaline rush. As we got him low, he readied his skill, and everyone charged at him with everything strong skill they had. But then it happened. At 2% health, he wiped us. All of us. Nearly everyone died instantly. 


    It was a final reminder during our journeys that not every corner of Eorzea was meant to be conquered. But it was glorious. No one was mad. We were all disappointed, sure, but we laughed about it. Comradery was had. There were jokes in the FC chat about "Next time I'm gonna _______". This was a secret which we had not been privvy to, and it was quite the surprise.

    And as we saddled up and grouped, we prepared to explore the world again, wondering what other surprises might lie ahead... though I doubt any of them will catch us quite off guard as encountering Odin did :)


    That's my fondest memory of FFXIV!

    Waiting for something fresh to arrive on the MMO scene...

    I havent really played any of the final fantasy games, but I would have to say my favorite with them was when my girlfriend and I were beta testing and we had fun hanging out in the towns and outpost, she made a munchkin character and I was a kitty character and she would jump over me and got close enough to me to use an emote to pet my character :D
