I now bring to your attention the fact that X is not a single person, and there's a thread up right now of people screaming all about how X-2 has ruined the things that X did right story-wise. No need to thank me, just let this thread die now.
>>323922557 Here is what I remember. Tidus is a dream turned into a reality because of the aeons dreaming. Sin is always replaced by the summoners body guard who then kills the summoner. Yuna and co. broke the cycle because they killed all the aeons which also meant erasing the Tidus they knew. Also Tidus dad was Sin because somehow he knew Yuna's dad in the future or some shit. Auron was also a ghost time traveler.
Now that I think about it I don't understand either.
>>323922067 ok blitzball was great. Probably the best sports game I've ever played. The key to never losing is to hire rikku's brother for the team, because for some reason he's the best god damn player in the game by far.
>>323924407 because none of the characters are designed to be self inserts. ffix has a self contained story. everyone has a role, a background, and the flow of events make sense.
On the other hand, FFX's story ultimately fails for the same reason FFV did. The main character is designed to be a self-insert blank slate thats just along for the ride, but at the same time he gets pushed into relationships and happenings that feel unnatural. There's very little reason to take some crazy kid along on a pilgrimage to kill yourself. Before you reach zanarkand, he is a literal retard in terms of the world's common sense and is complete dead weight. The relationship between him and yuna is completely forced, shes just desperate for anyone and bam , there you are. Mr. Dense retard ready and willing to give her the D because HAAHAAHAA.
Remove tidus from the story, and the story still works.
>>323925180 Freya? Nah. She stops growing as a character halfway through the disc, and is simply there for you to use if you want to use her.
Tifa? Nah. Tifa did jack shit. She was there for 'muh tits' and little else. Her story arc was basically just the writers shoehorning her into a storyline she had literally no reason to be in. It was like they decided to add her early on, but completely forgot to expand upon her purpose and reason for even being present. Tifa was literal Mary Sue tier, but folks got them nostalgia goggles on and go gaga for tits and 'muh waifu' and shit, so naturally she gets a pass in spite of that.
Auron wasn't a time traveller he was in Spira alongside Braska, a monk that became Braska's guardian. Sin sends him to Dream Zanarkand at the start of the game to fetch Tidus. As far as I know Dream Zanarkand is actually in Spira, it's just so far out of the way Sin would likely stop anyone who nears it
>>323925207 Tidus narrated as you went along. I won't call him a great character, but him acting all dumb and looking back on it was hardly a blank slate. And x's story was completely straightforward. They go to zanarkand, and Seymour fucks shit up from time to time. They were gonna leave tidus in Luca but auron showed up and made him come.
Besides, ff9's story was just a shitty, edgy version of iv with some Vi and Vii mixed in. Half that games cast was unnecessary. Did we really need freya to suffer losing her entire species AND FIND out her lover forgot her, only to be completely dropped? Were amarant and quina important at all? Ff9 was just a string of tragedy to build up to ff4's plot twist.
Don't remind me. The only thing they gave freya was shoehorning her into Steiner and beatrix' defending-Alexandria bit to show how much of a good person freya is to fight alongside beatrix despite what she did. Freya can help save the humans, but fuck her own people. Who cares about them?
not what I was trying to say you easily offended nigger. The game's color scheme works on a technical level, which is why it looks fine in black and white. However, making everything into pastels and soft colors is gay as fuck.
>>323925207 >Remove tidus from the story, and the story still works.
Yuna dies, Sin eventually comes back, the cycle continues. The whole point of Tidus being there was him questioning the religion left and right. Yeah he didn't know a lot, but it wasn't the world he knew and the only thing he could say when people acted like he should know is "Sin's toxin".
Without him being there, they don't even begin to get the idea to end the cycle.
>pretentious whiny main character >50 hours of unskippable cutscenes >gameplay is basically "button mash to win" with no strategy in the turn based combat >story is complete hogwash with no likable characters >airship is completely useless and doesn't let you explore >areas and locations are LITERALLY corridors that you can't deviate from >sidequests and missions are completely broken and not fun in the slightest >endgame bosses are only fun if you grind, which is a sin in a video game and should be instantly discarded as bad unless you can beat Penance at level 10 or bypass the insane stat requirements >garbage fanservice via Lulu (le every game needs sex fanservice XDXD)
Among the few problems I had. I'd never recommend this game even to the most diehard fan.
>>323933572 Any game or character that has writing that is higher than a high school level gets called pretentious around here. Devs wrote an intricate story? Pretentious. Character has deep personal struggles and grows over the game? Nope, just pretentious.
/v/ doesn't know what the words pretentious, autistic, shill, cuck, marketer, edgy, or mary sue mean. They're just generic buzzwords standard /v/ posters cycle through to fit in.
>>323934538 >>linear as fuck Every Final Fantasy ever >>HA HA HA HA HA HA HA Cringe-worthy scene, nobody can deny. >>shit character designs Tidus' was bad but everyone else's was fine. >>shit voice acting They really grew over the course of the game and got comfortable with their roles. Also tell me that Auron's VA wasn't 10/10. >>shit dialogue "I didn't like it so it's bad." >>shit story "I didn't like it so its bad" >>shit gameplay "I didn't like it so it's bad." FFX's battle system is 10/10, it's one of the things the game does incredibly right.
>>323934538 >most games are linear as fuck you just dont notice, X wasnt as bad as 13 because it atleast had branching paths and hidden nooks to find >missing the point of that scene >opinion I personally liked it >It could have been worse, they pulled it off ok for being forced to synch to the japanese mouth movements >incorrect >a tad complicated if you dont pay attention but not terrible >X has some of the best in the series until the super end game and if you dislike it because of turnbased then why are you even in a FF thread sperg
