Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

In a lot of final fantasy games and rpgs there is a common story where some evil force or empire has enslaved the world and the worlds citizens bury their heads in the sands to the situation, not daring to do anything about it for fear of persecution or death.

Out of nowhere a small group of people against the odds go on a quest to stop the evil and put a stop to it and come out on top. Now that is a brill storyline or what!

I think rpg's are awesome because you get to equip your character with everything from armor, to weapons, to magic and get to control aspects of the game. You have free reign to go almost anywhere you want and you can see your characters grow stronger and better. Getting a level up is one of the best feelings ever

Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

For me its like an adventure that takes u to a different world. Like picking up a book but its like alive in ur televion and u control the destiny of the characters.Im an aspiring writer so anything that involves reading im there.I love hearing.., listening to and of corse writing stories of many kinds. im not very picky.A good friend once told me '"In the world every book has an ENDING------But in life every ENDING is a new BEGINING............" and i stick to that belief. i thinks its always healthy to learn lessons from others through their stories. so yep that about sums it up 4 me.

Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

Ah...it's been a while since I last looked at the topic.

I always look for a great musical score in an RPG. A soundtrack can easily play out every event, every emotion and feeling coming from a character...just so many things can come out of a song that speak to you with indiscribable words. Although, it's very rare that an RPG's music is even on a competent level--it takes something really amazing to impress me. And, even though not always, most music from the FF games never ceases to make an impression on me every time I listen to a song. =]

"What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general? "

That is one of the most interesting (to me, that is) questions I've heard in a long while. I'll answer in two parts:

What draws you to final fantasy...

The very high quality and intuitve user friendly aspects of the games. (Although, after FFX and after Sakaguchi san left Square, that quality did decrease).

and rpgs in general?

Well with the battles and exploring towns/dugeons etc and interacting with many NPCs and buying, selling, etc, I feel there is a depth to RPGs that other games don't always match. Sometimes RPG stories are VERY immersive. It seems many (NOT ALL) non RPGs are not as good at this. (Immersive stroies, that is).

Final Fantasy VII has driven me to RPGs and to Final Fantasy series. It's really that easy.

Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

i must admit that before i played my first final fantasy which was ff7 i had only ever played two other rpg's. I found these other 2 games stepping stones to final fantasy 7.

I really loved final fantasy 7 so much that it drew me into thinking to myself "that one was good lets play em all"

I'm glad i did play them all

They get my mind off of my harsh reality. Escapism, plain and simple.

Something important I forgot to add: I feel like certain super awesome RPGs have higher replay values than many other games.

Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

Well, I like the feeling of reading a book when I play final fantasy. Only there is an illision that I am acctually writing it myself.

The storyline is the most importent thing about these games, without it I would not play final fantasy. But I must say I favor the games were Tetsuya Nomura is the character designer.

I like the strategi in the games too and solving problems. The temples in FFX for example. Or finding/making the best weapons.

Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

Another thing i love about the final fanatasy series and rpg's is that you get to explore areas too and find secret areas which aren't obvious to start of with.

I love finding out the secret areas.

Another thing i like about final fantasy are the way the individual characters develop of the course of the whole story. A good example being Cecil, Steiner, Cloud, Squall, Lulu

I agree very much. Watching characters gradually go from one point to another (mentally, emotionally, etc.) can be very interesting.

Re: What draws you to final fantasy and rpgs in general?

And you kinda empathise with some of the characters too, you even start to care for them in some instances.

I can kinda relate to characters like squall etc because I've been like that in the past
