The modern story is getting a little out of hand and weird. But I don't play for that so I'm on board until I actually dislike a game.

Bravely Default is a really good classic FF style RPG (think FF7-9) with interesting tweaks.

For example you can set how often the random encounters happen, from 0 to almost every single step. This allows you to grind at a really fast pace if you want, or if you want to go through an area and not fight for some reason, you can turn it off. It makes leveling up/dungeon crawling interesting. For example I wanted to go back through a dungeon because I didn't go down a certain path and I figured there would be treasure there, so I turned off random encounters so I could rush to it quickly and get back out without having to fight. It really impacts the pacing in a good way.

The combat system is also really enjoyable, advanced Job system with the Brave/Default system also in play. Story is good, characters are solid (voice acting isn't that good, but it's a JRPG what can you do), etc.

All around great game so far (about 8 hours in). This is the kind of RPG that I miss from square.

Sitting here reading a Facebook thing where people are talking about hot good Final Fantasy X-2 was. Wondering if we played the same game.

I actually know a person who thinks X-2 is just as good as X. Made me try X-2 again. Lasted for about 10 seconds into the intro sequence then I couldn't go on in fear of spoiling my Final Fantasy experience.

Game play for X-2 is under rated. Just so hard to get past all the cheesy chick flick garbage.

I'm not saying it's not fun. I'm saying it's ridiculous.

I was going to pick up FFX, but I YouTubed some of the gameplay and I quickly remembered how very much I hate Tidus. His voice acting is horrendous and his character is extremely annoying. One character normally can't hurt a game that much for me but since he is the main character it does. Hard to root for him when I wish someone would kill him.

I think pretty much everything about X-2 is horrific. I haven't played every single game in the series, but out of the ones I have played, X-2 is easily the worst.

Does Tidus even count as a main character? I always saw him as a someone who is just along for the ride. The real focus of the story is Yuna. Really, the only purpose Tidus served was being a fish out of the water character.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

You didn't pay much attention to the story line did you lol??


I liked tidus personally and I even liked the voice acting. The guy I didn't like was wakka... He annoyed the crap out of me.

I know people hated x-2 but it holds a dear place in my heart. Both those games helped me out when I was going through a rough time. I even really enjoyed yunas singing on top of the ship.
