    i remembered the first time i really played FF1. my friend brought it over so we could play it all night. as he and i went out to some old house to break stuff or whatever, my sister played the game and erased the data. well, my friend let me borrow the game (turned into the whole summer) and i loved it. i still question how one could love a game where there is no action. your guys sit in a little box. the enemies sit in their box. you command them to attack. they swing a weapon. sparkles appear on the enemy. and then numbers come up showing your attack damage, as well as for spell damage and experience points. i could go on. but, the point is that it was not a "loud" game like mario 3. it was clear and complex. the graphics were damn good, too, for the nintendo. and it was challenging (i hated the marsh cave and the mages in the ice cave with their rub spell). and i still love it (been almost 20 years since i first played it). i grew into loving FF2 and FF3. both are excellent titles (i still have not won the pink tail in FF2). the one thing i never liked about FF1 was the boring, tedious music as it drolled along with no change except for the board. what have you say?

      I have to admit that I was only a little interested in Final Fantasy when I first played it. Although, a few years later when Final Fantasy 2 was released, I completely fell in love with it and played it nonstop. Soon after,my fave one Final Fantasy 3 was released. I can't remember how many times I went through that game.Ahh,the memories.

        My first FF game was 7. Even though it was for PSOne, it was damn good. :)

        Then I got into 8, 9, X, then 1-6 (via emulator.) This game rules. :D

          I loved the game when I was younger too, but I only got 1/3 part into the game (it was too hard for me), and didn't actually beat it until a couple years ago on a rom. The first FF game I beat was FF III/VI. Kefka put up a fight, but I knocked him down with ease. I actually think FF III/VI is better then FF VII despite VII had some cool plots and a better storyline.

              i love FF1 and still play it occasionally.

              there are two things i hate about it though.

              1. the annoying music that always plays. Dah dah dah.. dahdahdah dahdahdah dah dah dahdahdah dah dah dah dah.. du du du du du DU.. dududududu.. etc lol :lol:

              edit: found it http://www.students.sonoma.edu/users/w/walz/ffmidi/FF1battl.mid

              2. the time it takes after a battle, when it calculates the experience and gold earned from the battle . i swear it takes a full minute after every battle before you can go back out and walk around. anyone else agree???

              but it's a great game nonetheless.. one of the best ever made.

                  the end battle sequence, as well as during battle, could be sped up by putting the response rate at 8 on the title screen. i had it on 1 for a long time. it took forever.

                    FFI was good. It was addictive though it had no characters, really. nobody in your team spoke and the story was loose.
                    I think the better ones were FFVI (3 in japan) because of the story, characters, magic and the uber amounts of summons, and also FFVII for obvious reasons.

                        Agreed.

                        FFI confused the heck out of me at first because I was young and at that point, I hadn't played a game like it.

                        I hated that none of the spells worked half the time and you'd get that damn "Ineffective" message. >_< Also, if you selected "Fight" on an enemy that was already defeated you'd also get the "Ineffective" message, which makes sense. However, later FF don't work that way and by the time I gave FFI another shot, I had totally forgotten about that rule, lol. Frustrating.

                          I wasn`t really into the Final Fantasy series until I started playing FFVII. Despite the memorable characters and simple game play, I just got bored with it. Not enough to draw me into playing it again.

                          FFVIII, IMHO, is the best in the series because the characters here were so lifelike and wasn`t overdramatic like in FFIX, FFX, FFX-2
                          along with simple gameplay, excellent story, and the leveling up mechanics.

                          Besides, Rinoa Heartilly is the finest girl of the FF series.

                            As cute as Rinoa is, Rikku wins every time.

                                  FF1 for the nes is a classic. You guys seriously don't like the music in it? I LOVE it, it's so catchy.
