I occasionally lament that this one kind of got left in the dust whilst FFVII gets all sorts of tie-ins and the latest remake.

Maybe if the remake does well they'll remake this one day. Then I'll be chomping at the bit.
Great game.

I used to enjoy trying to collect all of the Triple Triad cards. It was a pain though, when I'd acquire the Ifrit card near the beginning and then end up losing it to the first noob who I'd challenge to a game.
Sealed retail copy is probably worth £100

This was my first FF game so the nostalgia in me agrees. The objective gamer in me disagrees... FFX and FFXV had a lot more going on and FFIV had the strongest story (in my opinion)
Is there an option to pay £60 to get one third of the game?

I have preordered final fantasy vii remake (part 1) 🙈
Highly recommended! Sadly overlooked FF game these days... yes the junction system is broken but it still has so much to offer! + I prefer this version over the recent 'Remaster' - Must buy for PSP/Vita Owners!
this the original ps1 version ?

Whilst FF7 has a confusing plot, this game takes that to the next level by making the plot insane.

This isn't a criticism as I think it is so bonkers that it is actually amazing.
I think 7 and 9 beat this, but third ain't bad. Good price!
Not to be a negative Nancy, but am I right in thinking these PS1 FF games are bordered PAL 50Hz versions?

To think that was the norm for years I was just reading that the mighty Dreamcast was the first to buck the trend. Some console.

God I loved the Dreamcast, it was ahead of its time. A Dreamcast mini needs to be done (properly)!

Aww man, that’d be incredible! That said, I could probably hook up my Dreamcast in the spare room. I recently set up my N64 and original Xbox for kicks

You can play alot of those without a mini but Powerstone, YES, such a great 4 player and I'm not much a fighting game fan.
Been hoping for Skies remaster for years though.
Wasnt that keen on Crazy 2 though

Mentioning FF15 in the same sentence as FF10 should get you arrested. FF10 is the best one, 15 is woeful.
F7, 8 and 9 were the best for me, FF10 was mostly smoke and mirrors...if you played until the end you will know.

Personally, I feel the FF games on the original PlayStation were the best. 7, 8 & 9 (in no particular order) followed by 12, 10, 6, 4, 5.

The rest were forgettable.

7,8,9 in that order for me, played 1,2,4,5,6 on PS1 all in one week and cant say had a favourite of those but really enjoyed them.
Mystic Quest was on my faves as a kid though.

Couldnt get into X because of the leap in graphics and play styke so not played any after 9 but bought them all to get into at some point.

Good question. The PS2 is one of the few consoles I’ve never owned, but I found this via Metacritic:

"Remodeled player models, higher resolution textures, even better lighting features all top the list of Dreamcast over PlayStation improvements."

Agreed with that list, cept I'd have 10 and 6 before 7 and 12 at the end

I used to think 12 was heresy, with their change in combat style, but I've come to realise that it's a decent control system in its own right. The story, plot, voice acting and game lore are all decent as well.
The PS4 remaster makes it a breeze to blast through with the double and quadruple speed options, though I didn't notice much in the way of graphical improvements.
