How could there be, they have maybe 2 scenes together and she dies almost immediately (one of the stupidest dead in video game). I think she genueinly has around 2 minutes of screen time in the entire game.
They expect you to watch the film. In which she gets another whole 5.

Seriously though, they do expect you to have seen the film, which is a ridiculous expectation. You can tell because one of the characters who appears in the pre-final-boss-fight cutscene wasn't even in the game. Just the film until that scene.

Well if we're doing lists now, I feel like I should post 13 Final Fantasy lists from a blogger that I like. I think they were worth the read.



Why is 10 the only one you refer to by Roman numeral?
Its the one people usually call that. I know the others had Roman Numerals on the box of course, but people called them 4, 6, 7, 8 etc (or well, 2 and 3 in the original US release).

X, X-2 were generally not referred to as 10 so that stuck

I say ten and ten-two. But i also always wrote it with Xs.

Yo X-2 is probably the grindiest game in the series. Outside of 11 obviously.

I have made a mistake.

Uhhhh. My numbers....

Crystal Chronicles> FF Tactics Advance> FF Tactics Advance 2>10>4>10-2>6

I either haven't played the others or in the case of ones like the remake of 5, they didn't leave enough of an impression on me for me to give a rating.

XIV is the only one I care about, which you will hear about at great length when the general arc of the thread reaches that point.
I thought Crit wasn't bothering with the MMOs?

Of course, the one we're all secretly waiting for is Mystic Quest. :p

I think they do play XIV, or have played a reasonable portion of it.
Everyone is getting my thoughts on XIV regardless, once XIII (and its sequels?) have gotten their mauling frank analysis. (Well, XIV: A Realm Reborn onwards anyway. I never got to play 1.0 before it was cast into oblivion.)

I will be doing 14 because I actively already play that game so i might as well talk about it.

Man, I wish I could get into 14. Unfortunately, I am burned out on MMOs, or any online games for that matter. The game can pay me to play it and I still won't have the energy to play

Ooh, I just realized that you might complete the whole series faster than Projared on youtube.

The dude has been reviewing every mainline ff games since 2017, and just reviewed XII about a month ago.

I actually find both your prospective and that of PJ's to be interesting. You guys seem to agree on a lot of things, but disagree on other stuff as well

Projared played FF11 which I wont do. Also he tweeted that he had to play FF12 twice because the first playthroughs footage got corrupted.

Also he streams and plays other games a lot as well so there are rather long breaks between FF games.
