I COMPLETELY AGREE with your rant!

The story and the characters were childish and effeminate. But the gameplay, music and pre-rendered backgrounds were excellent.

It's a pity. And I wanted to watch this trailer. By the way, I recently ordered a great paper on film industry at www.best-custom-essays.com best-custom-essays.com.

I'm going to explain why 9 isn't as good as 7.

FF9 for me storyline wise is the worst game in the series, the love story is horrible written and the game pretends that the love story is one of the main focuses when it isn't, the story is FULL of plotholes, some of the characters are obnoxious, and some of them make really stupid decision (especially garnet) and has a really unsympathetic character that the game acts like is sympathetic (kuja). In a top 10 list that lists everything wrong with 9:

10: the trance mode
9: necron
8: the eidolons and Brahne
7:Freya and fratley
6:alexander
5: terra, Garland and zidane's angel of death powers
4: beatrix
3: kuja
2: garnet's disk 1 and 2 actions (returning to Alexandria)
1: zidane and garnet's love story

I won't get into too much detail because I'm better at explaining this when I'm talking on a video I plan to make, but I'll say some things. The only reason for Necron's existence was for him to serve as a cheap excuse for kuja to try to redeem himself, because kuja completly deserves to redeem himself (being sarcastic), kuja was an unsympathetic monster the whole game and then during terra the game pretty much pulls out of nowhere And forces to make kuja out to be a "tragic and sympathetic" character despite there being no build up before, and the game pretty much started treating kuja like a draco in leather pants (term for character who has his negative traits down played), and NECRON was just something the writers pulled out of their rears as a forced attemped to make kuja atone.

Beatrix is an annoying God-mode Sue who never looses a fight, which is especially annoying because the guy who fights her each time was zidane the guy who was created to be the most powerful person in 9: the shadow the hedgehog/mewtwo of 9. In the final fight with Beatrix; Zidane should have transformed into a more powerful incomplete angel of death trance mode and curb stomp Beatrix and actually have Beatrix loose a fight, there's a bunch of other problems I have with Beatrix but I won't state that here.

And Zidane and Garnet I consider the love story to be the worst done in the final fantasy series, people act like it's so great but I don't understand why, it's supposed to be a spin on the classic peasant princess love story but it's not very well written, there's barely any chemistry between them, Garnet spends more time wangsting about her mother and kingdom than she does focusing on Zidane, let's not even get started on the mute segment (and people think Cloud and Squall are emo). and Zidane barely ever gets upset over what happens to Garnet, personality wise Zidane is a mary-sue, Zidane is WAY too optimistic, Garnet has TOO MUCH angst and zidane has too little, and then there's Garnet's stupid decision during disk 1 and 2, she completely betrays Zidane's trust, stabs him in the back, and abandons him, and end up making the intire beginning of the game (the kidnapping and trip to lindblum) and first several levels of gameplay completely pointless, what kind of thing is that to start off a love story or even put into it? The player is pretty much forced to play through her section of stupidity with an extremely obvious conclusion, you pretty much Hand over the eidolons to the antagonists, and Garnet is responsible for all the city's getting blow up due to her ridiculous behaviour, not to mention leaving a scar on Zidane and Garnet's love story, I consider that to one of the worst moments in the final fantasy series. The game acts like the love story is one of the main focuses, the main musical theme is a love song (melodies of life) that plays consteadly throughout the game and even serves as the world map theme! Yet there's barely ANY focus due to Garnet barely focusing or having chemistry with Zidane aside from random scenes that come out of nowhere and then are immediately made irrelevant and pointless afterwards and never mentioned again.

And honestly Garland should have been the main antagonist he was really interesting and unique with his moral ambiguity and instead he has to play second Fidel to Kuja and Brahne, two really 2d and cliche characters who are overhyped, and personally I think Beatrix should have garnet's adoptive mother, it wouldn't have sent out the unfortinate implication that ugly people are bad. And Kuja shouldn't have been a straight up antagonist but a complex character that was basically a darker version of Zuko, from avater the last air bender.

Both halves of ff9 were pretty badly witten. I think 9 would have been better told as an anime, in fact most of the ff games should be retold as animes. FF9 in my opinion should have been a deconstruction of the nes and snes FF games. You should also check socksmakepeoplesexy's review of the game. And Final Fantasy Whatever's review.

Could someone with the knowledge do the *Rush* racing games series removing the fog and making it more like the arcade?

I wonder why the authors of these texture packs are going to such great lengths to hide their existence. I wonder if they are being threatened somehow? If so I wish they would be a man and own up instead of acting like a dick about it.

Another theory I wonder is if the switch over to 64 bit computing which was happening at the time of these texture packs proved too much. *Windows Vista shudder*. Windows 7 stabilized the mess Vista created but by then a lot of people were worn out and had thrown away their old devices which no longer worked.

The modding community at the time has also largely died and DLC started making an appearanc.

A lot of *publishers* also left the door such as Broderbund *Where in the USA/World/Time.etc is Carmen Sandiego* and a few others due to computers changing too fast at the time.

I liked both 7 and 8 more than 9, and I disliked 10. I don't think 7 is overrated. I never played it until recently.

How am I just finding this now? Anyway, thanks for the feedback on the Frog Lifecycle. I debated adding diagonal movement of the tadpole, but in my personal tests I thought it made the game too easy. I should have found a larger pool of people to test it! Maybe I'll update it now…it's available on amphibian.com and still gets played fairly often.

@Decrata

LOL, came here for the exact same reason (same game)! This list probably proved more useful than the OP intended!

I wish I was there, maybe I can have a new motherboard for a lesser price.

by allwordseoallwordseo, 22 Jun 2014 08:50

The game is more of a strategy game. The graphic is not as awesome basing my opinion on current standard.

by allwordseoallwordseo, 22 Jun 2014 08:47

It was more visually exciting though the game play feels the same.

The gameplay, graphics and characters are at medium standard.

It was a full and clear review. It was nice to share this review for others to clearly understand the feature of the game.

by allwordseoallwordseo, 14 Jun 2014 23:53

I was impress by interactive feature of Luigi. I was a fan of the game and I am just glad to see they are putting an effort to revive the characters.

by allwordseoallwordseo, 14 Jun 2014 23:49

I have watched this film and it was a terrific story. I like the old games being featured here.
