Grandia: The single greatest rpg ever.

Grandia 2 was so, so.

I dunt think they're releasing Grandia 3 over here x.x

And Grandia Online is on the horizon.

Join the club. Grandia was HARD, much harder than II or III. II was amazing on the dreamcast, as it was intended. I occasionally pick up my PS2 copy and play it. Damn the save spot in the final dungeon where you can't go back! *growls* It's too bad not many people have heard of the series, it's definitely on a high level.

Can I post another screen? *begs*

It's an RPG I play through again and again, not because of tonnes of secrets and mini-games (of which there are VERY few) but purely to enjoy the story unfolding again. Two was SHORT Grandia I has at least 65 hours in it I reckon. Another nice thing about Grandia is the battle system, it's was barely changed for two at all and is the most fun system I've played, it puts the Final Fantasy systems to shame. Actually the Grandia series put all the Final Fantasy games to shame! XD

Unfortunately Square have got their grubby mits on it now, so Grandia online is going to be the last game in the series developed by the original creators.

Out of I and II Grandia I wins on all levels imo.

I'd disagree about Grandia putting Final Fantasy to shame, as the Final Fantasy games are the best I've played in terms of RPGs. Grandia is probably my second favorite series, though. Grandia online is going to be odd, though...I have a feeling it's going to be thoroughly generic. *sigh*

2 (Shadow Hearts), 1 (Shadow Hearts: Covenant), 3 (Shadow Hearts: From the New World).

Haven't played any of the Shadow Hearts since the story didn't interest me but it's a good series.

Only played SH:2 it was alright, found it a bit depressing though.

IMO there hasn't been a decent FF game since the PSX...

Disagree. Final Fantasy X has been one of the finest Final Fantasy games to date. They did the battle system perfectly and created an amazing world and engaging storyline. Final Fantasy X-2, though thoroughly recycled, isn't really a bad game. Many rabid Final Fantasy fanboys chewed it out for being pandering and shallow, but there was a nice, deep game under the surface. The battle system was a bit of a step back, but still workable and fun. I liked the FFT-esque class changes, though. Final Fantasy XI...let's pretend that didn't happen.

FFX put me to sleep. I haven't once managed to get through the first hour of the game without falling asleep. (I'm not kidding.)

FFT-A (GBA) was pretty good though.

FFT and FFTA are both great, but I prefer FFTA. It's more well rounded and addictive. It's easier to pick up and play, too.

The first hour of FFX was amazing!! What are you talking about? The game definitely gets better later on, though.

FFX was icky. Square wanted to make a game that looked revoulutionary without having to pay anyone to make up new scripts and characters. The game was unoriginal and dull, I turned it off without completing it, and it's the only game I've ever done that with.

Haven't touched X-2 but I could never get why square made a sequal to the weakest FF game in the series so far...

XII looks interesting though, they've gone back to a medievil sorta theme though, kinda like IX, maybe the'll be able to redeem themselves.

(Note to Aruna: Final Fantasy games were never made for the PC, except for a limited release of FFVII in Japan a looong time ago. That is, unless you count emulators.)

Why is it that no one likes FFX? Because it adheres well to the Final Fantasy formula, it comes off as even better. Imagine if Square tried to make a more realistic FF...no one would buy it! In my opinion, FFX is one of the finest Final Fantasies to date. The story is well written (for the most part), the characters are well designed, the battle system is awesome and well balanced, and the game in general builds on and improves the whole Final Fantasy formula. I for one loved it.

My favorite Final Fantasies, in order from favorite to least favorite: VI (III), VII, X, VIII, X-2, IV (II), I, V, IX. I don't have the resources to play XI, and I haven't played XII yet. (Yes, I have played all of the Final Fantasies to date. I'm a hardcore RPG nerd.)
