30 Days of FF

Day 02 – Your least favourite Final Fantasy game

I am probably going to be drummed out of fandom for this, but this is an easy question for me, and the answer is Final Fantasy VII.

Maybe I came to it too late -- I didn't play it until 2004, by which time I had played the other PlayStation-era games as well as FFX and X-2. But I honestly don't think the early-generation graphics were the problem, although I'm sure it didn't help. I found the story confusing. Cloud was not particularly compelling as a lead character, nor Sephiroth as a villain. The mini-games didn't really hold my interest, and I was never able to figure out how to wake up Vincent. For whatever reason, the game didn't speak to me. I did finish it, and considering what a major piece of gaming history it represents, I'm glad I experienced it for myself. But I have no compulsion to revisit it, or to play any of the other games in the Compilation. (I might have made an exception for Crisis Core if I had a PSP, since Zack is one of the characters I actually do find interesting. But alas, I do not, or any particular plans to buy one.)

The other Final Fantasy game I didn't really care for was FFV, although I acknowledge it may not entirely be the game's fault; we played the PS1 port, and I understand that it's pretty wretched. If they ever do a DS remake on it, I might give it another whirl.
