        instead of a linear game with easy combat and a cool job system, you have a metroid-style world complete with platforming, a more fleshed out combat system, and a better version of the ff5 job system that includes shit from ff11/tactics and has mod support so you can put dragoon back in the game

      the frick are you talking about
      1 fixes all of the bugs where magic just literally didn't work and 3 is the only time they've ever even released 3 in english technically, since it as just the remake before that (even if the remake was great)

          no it's not, but it does fix them (iirc there was also some other bugs that kept through one of the ports but I might be misremembering that)

      The retranslated scripts for I to IV all have a lot of needless embellishment to them, for what I can only assume is the localizors trying too hard to make them seem more "professional" quality than the earlier translations. Despite the original Japanese scripts for those early games mostly being pretty dry and to the point because there wasn't much room for text on those old carts.

          V's English script has a lot of needless changes too, but mainly to try and add extra jokes or meta humor. I think they leaned too hard into V being known as the "light-hearted" and "funny" one, but the original is more just basic "haha he's embarrassed he got a nosebleed over the girl he thought was a guy how wacky!" kind of Japanese humor while the English script has more references to other media or le wacky Reddit humor.
          >And now we must fight like men...and women... and uh, women dressed as men! Its morphing time!

          VI's English script is mostly fine from what I remember. The difference between SNES and GBA are just some mistranslation fixes and neutral word changes you could argue about. Though both scripts do try to make Kefka come off as more snarky than he does in Japanese. They also both censor Edgar talking himself out of trying to seduce Relm.

      Ehh.. even though he's literally asking what Cecil is saying, it's more like.. "what the frick are you talking about". Since Cecil had just complained about Myssidians being helpless, Baigan is more or less implying that Cecil's pity is misplaced

      FF7-12 are far superior in every way, you can even emulate the job system in FF7 with materia if you want

      I - PS1 (more faithful) or PSP (quicker to play through)
      II - PSP
      III - PR (2D) or PSP/PC (3D remake)
      IV - PSP (2D) or DS/PC (3D remake)
      V - GBA
      VI - GBA

      GBA versions have worse audio quality and overly-saturated visuals, but there are fan patches to help alleviate that.

      Alternatively, you could just play the original NES and SNES versions of all the games. Especially if you know Jap and so translations aren't an issue.

                no, the franchise is dead because it didn't evolve over time, it stayed as the same brain dead turn based 4NIAR all the way until 12 when they finally tried making something different

                13 was too big of a change too quickly, and it took way too long to develop too, but the series was dead before 13 was a thing

                Best Final "Fantasy" Top 5
                9>7>10>6>4

                Best Final Fantasy "Game" Top 5
                12>13>10>8>7

                Final Fantasy 9 is the best Final Fantasy, but the worst game

                Final Fanatsy 12 is the best game of the franchise, but the worst "Final Fantasy"

                i said they were they best games, not the best stories, music, characters, etc.

                and yes a difficult game usually is a better game, especially when the alternative is piss easy

    The pixel "remasters" are both soulless and also low effort shit.

    Right obviously looks better but left is the actual games and if you play and finish right then you never finished left

      They have an option to fix the font, I don't know why they don't have it on for middle-right.

    The objectively correct answer:
    IV, right
    V, right
    VI, left
    IV and V's sprite palettes were too simple and they are very boring to look at. The remasters did a good job modernizing the presentation. This has already been done before with the GBA releases, and they looked better then, too.
    The reason why the VI one looks terrible is because the game has a darker palette because it's meant to be fricking steam punk, but they cranked the brightness on the character colors up to 11, so it looks very off putting and gross. Not to mention that it's a dark and more serious game than the previous two entries. Some credit, VI's pixel remaster is better than the original mobile version, but not by much.

    HD games with low-res sprites are 100% pointless, pure nostalgia bait. It doesn't even make sense if you're not fully committing to an authentic 8-bit or 16-bit imitation, including music and sound effects. Just draw the characters however you want, there's no reason to confine your game to imaginary limitations.
