Final Fantasy in generally has always been close to my heart. Sitting playing Final Fantasy VII as a young boy was my first experience with an RPG. From that moment on I was hooked. I've bought ever Final Fantasy game since then, except the online games, which in my opinion isn't Final Fantasy and the games before my time. One Final Fantasy stands out in particular...Final Fantasy XII. I own, and I remember distinctively hating it and being very disappointed, granted I didn't get very far. What I'd like to know is; why it's herald as one of the greatest Final Fantasies?
"This conclusive Final Fantasy game for the PlayStation 2 is considered by many RPG fans to be a series pinnacle of storytelling, combat customisation, and graphical beauty. It sold like crazy and became the tenth best-selling PS2 game in US history." http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/game/107327/the-26-best-role-playing-games-ever/?pn=5
