AGAIN.
Posted by BassmanPaul

Lol, I guess we needed another game that came out years ago...

Posted by Mr_Skeleton

When I read the game title as Final Fantasy IV: the complete Kollection does that mean I played too much MK in the last few days?

Posted by MisterChief

I wish they would just release these games for iOS. I haven't played my PSP in about 2 years.

@Chabbs0: As in play yet another release of an old FF game and I already had the quest.
Again x 2

I can't stand Final Fantasy IV.
Edit: Although that has a lot to do with the fact that I can't stand the majority of the main characters of the game.  No problem with the game itself, but I couldn't find less compelling personalities if I tried.

@Chabbs0: Full circle... again.
Edited by Addfwyn

One of the best FFs (Still partial to VI and VIII though) on probably my favourite platform at the moment.
Can't really complain with that, though I've played this game so many times i may wait a while before I pick it up.

WHY DOES THIS LOOK SO AWESOME! *pops in FFIV for DS*

Posted by SparkEngineer
@Make_Me_Mad: certainly a lot more compelling than anything Atlus has ever produced.
Posted by Rongaryen

FFIV is amazing.  This quicklook has made me want to buy this.  I hate you Brad.

I started to freak out when they started to name the items in the chest before they even opened the chest.

Angry Final Fantasy fan is angry.

100 hours of new vegas first. Then this.

Posted by Addfwyn
@SRanker: maybe, but I adore Atlus games pretty much as much as I adore Final Fantasy.  It's like choosing between chocolate and azuki.  I can't do it.
Posted by Daveyo520

Is this 4 or 6 or what? How could 4 have been important to Brad when it wasn't out here long ago?

Posted by Zero_
@Daveyo520: It's 4, but was released as 2 in the States.

Date 1/1. Love it. Playstation Paperweight loses again!

It was out in the US. If I remember correctl the only games from the Nintendo era released in America were 1, 4 and 6.

And 6 is clearly the best 2D one. Better characters, graphics, systems, just a huge improvement in every single way.

I thought you lost your psp, where is QL of tactics ogre?

Amazing game through and through.  I've played this game so many times but I really appreciated re-release for the DS. 

Posted by Vexxan

Might be time to revive my PSP...

Edited by Tesla

Final Fantasy 7-9 are just as good as 4 and 6.  They are so similar in style that it's just a matter of preference. But to praise the SNES games and completely discount the Playstation FF's is a really weird opinion to have.

10 was pretty good too, but for me the clear distinction in quality is when they abandoned the world map and with it, exploration.
Posted by Beforet

How many times has this game been re-released?!

The real horror is I might just buy this anyway.

looks like someone hasnt watched the persona 4 endurance run
Edited by SparkEngineer

Fatlus out in full force i see :P Both games are great. But to call FFIV a game with no compelling characters is ridiculous. Especially with a persona avatar. How many of the persona characters fall into generic angsty teen? Most of them. That being said, a lot of the character development in FFIV is equally as bad, especially Yang Edge and Cid. However Cecil, Rosa and Rydia are all excellent characters. Persona 4 has some great characters too Adachi is fantastic. Yosuke is too, he definitely goes down a very unpredictable path with his coming to be as well. Still persona owes most of what it is to Final Fantasy's success and to call one of the best jrpgs of all time down when that clearly is a genre you enjoy just seems trivial. This game is incredibly old, there was simply nothing like this when it was around. I'm not a Final Fantasy fanboy, I have had enough with the series while I'm still very excited for the likes of persona 5 and  Catherine. The comments still come off as shallow and not putting into perspective when the game came out. Theres some great character development there, and while it obviously lacks modern story development techniques it still has great charm. It's an all time classic and no proper jrpg fan would think otherwise. Unless of course you're too young to appreciate it.

If we're throwing out FF opinions, I'd pick my favourites as V, IX and XII. V and XII are anomalies because the things I really love about them above others are gameplay systems. Seems like most people are make story and character preferences when it comes to FF because they tend to be functionally similar title to title, at least within hardware generations.


IX will always have a place in my heart for an extremely enjoyable weekend I spent with it about ten years ago now.
Posted by skrutop

Great game, but not the best.

Posted by RazielCuts

I think the DS version did a really great job of updating FF IV   

Edited by Grissefar

Jeff could shake Brads stick pretty well? That sounds like metaphor for waggling his penis.

Huh.

Posted by InfiniteGeass

I've only played FFXIII. I liked it, but feel no need to play previous FF games.

Apparently you didn't see everyone bitching about OoT on the 3DS...
Posted by soralapio

Man, the battle music is like a shot of pure nostalgia. I loved Final Fantasy back in the SNES days!

Posted by TheRedMage

Aw yes, definitely getting this to wash away my bad memories of the awful DS remake.

Posted by Jeffk38uk

......wait didn't they do a 3D remake of Final Fantasy IV? Why are we suddenly going back to remaking IV again but in the old style but with higher textures?

Posted by JackSukeru

I played the DS remake in it's entirety, it was pretty enjoyable. It was also a bit crazy when you had up to 5 characters in your party at once, you don't see that these days.


Battles and random encounters got a bit tiring towards the end as usual but at least I finished it. The only other FF games I've finished so far are the FF3 DS remake and FFIX.
Posted by lacke

I'd be more interested in FFVI. Never clicked with FFIV.

Posted by Spiritof

This game goes down in my personal history as a real sea change in my gaming tastes. I had dabbled with FF1 and Dragon "Warrior", but Final Fantasy IV is where the JRPG shit hits my fan. I can remember not believing my eyes and ears as the story just kept going, and going, with several false endings along the way. This really is a seminal RPG for me, and Square can keep re-re-releasing it until I'm old and grey.

I wish they would reissue at least one version of these old FF games with no random encounters... meaning that they would instead feature visible enemies that you would have to bump into or attack in the field.

@nissanskyline: Yeah not even Dissidia 012  3rd Birthday or Gods Eater QLs I really wanted those  : (
Posted by GoldenGlove

Oh man, I laughed inexplicably hard at Brad's "Look at that!" when he removed the stats window from the goblin's bestiary entry.

Edited by ryanwho

I wish someone could explain to me why FF4 has been "remastered" about 6 times now. Of all the games to remake. I really don't get it.

Posted by Olivaw

Final Fantasy VI is the best and anyone who says otherwise is wrong.

Posted by metalsnakezero

This looks pretty good. I want to get it soon.
