Wow so alot of people play them.

I'll admit a year ago i teased the HELL out of my friend for playing these "stupid" games. Then one day I was watching him play it and "secrectly" I went out and bought FFX........now I'm addicted! Cant get enough of them!

I would reccomend Xenosaga to anyone who likes games like FF. The graphics are simply amazing...the ingame battles are fun...jand its just all aroudn a great game. Plus its only 20 bucks now!

Never Winter Nights is the closest your going to get to an actual D&D experiance. The single player story is very good, but the multiplayer is very much like what you would play in real life. A person (DM) constructs a world based on a story line he either made or or pervioulsy existed. People join in on the game and you play out the story line. I never got into the multiplayer much of NWN but seems like it could be allot of fun.

Everquest, in my opinion is the crappiest game I've ever seen. I have no idea how it holds such a large player base. The basic premise behing EQ is that it is a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). You create a character, run around, and kill things. That's it, sure there a few large mobs that have better items and you can gain levels and what not, but there is no real story line to the game. Bashing on NPC's (Non Player Characters) for hours on end day after day, just to get an item has never been my idea of fun. UO (Ultima Online) back in 2000 was one of the best MMORPG's out on the Market because of the diversity and the PvP (Player vs Player).

But really it all depends on what your looking for, if your looking for more of an actualy D&D style game NWN is the way to go. MMORPG's are not very story driven, the game is what you make of it, the people you encouter and the things that you do.

Ugh....... they butchered FFX-2 with a sequal, I think they had it right the first time and keep every game seperate with a few little tie ins here and there. Like how there is allways a Cid in every FF.

It's more along the lines of 7 though. i thought 10 was complete crap. Too linear, absolutly nothing fun about it..... The characters were annoying, the story was stupid.. IMO of course.. I still love 2 & 3..

I thought X was an awsome story line. Voice acting was pretty good. Story line was really good I thought. How that whole Sin thing and the summoner was really well done I thought. The summons were top notch. Anima was one of the coolest summons I have ever seen.

The things that were wrong with X2 was the fact there was no main character. I only played for the first hour or so but no summons. Garment grids were without a doubt the dumbiest thing I have ever seen. No leveling, everything was done through these garment grids. Just so lame.

I enjoyed X asd well. But then again that was the first FF I played....so I had no comparison really. I think VIII is better already and I'm only 2hrs in! lol

Never played any of the FF series, started way back in my early days playing AD&D and moved on to the usual crop for gamer geeks... Rifts, Vampire, Star wars, Star trek, Paranoia, Call of Cthulu... the usual

I agree that the Fallout series is one of the best CRPG's ever made. I currently run a Neverwinter Nights persistant world as well http://www.urath.org if you're interested in checking it out

I love them. I'm quite addicted to the Final Fantasy series, I'm actually in the middle of playing FF3 for the SNES, talk about taking ya back eh? *L* Another one that I absolutely LOVE is Koudelka, it's a horror based RPG, REALLY cool. Legend Of Dragoon was quite fun as well.

FF VII sequel is a movie not a game.

The best MMORPG is Final Fantasy XI, but it is expensive to play. Video games will never equal d20 systems (pen and dice), they are not and can never be as versatile. With a good DM, AD&D is the most fun and addictive thing going. But FF7 will always be the best video game RPG with Neverwinter and Morrowind being close seconds. FF8 was good but too lovey dovey and futuristic. FF9 was fun but the story wasn't very in depth but it was pretty funny...the Vivi character was great.

BTW all the original FF games can be bought on playstation now, plus a few never released in english before ones. I bought them all and they are all fun. Not as good as the real thing though.

I used to play TMNT long ago, haven't played anything with dice in a long time.

There was one I loved on the dreamcast, can't remember it off hand, i think i spent 40 hours playing it, called in sick to work too.
