    I haven't played it yet but after reading the TV tropes page I want to at least see.

    The graphics are very impressive, albeit a bit below the CGI levels early trailers were showing us. The fight system and story both have potential - they are laying down an interesting groundwork.

    I'm not sure how two scrawny children can be as fierce of fighters as an experienced Soldier and rebel leader. Hopefully they describe that at some point, although it's probably just a J-RPG plot contrivance. It's been nagging me, though.
    Fukin seriously man. Like it's somewhat believable when the graphics weren't so good, but now that it looks so realistic, its harder to suspend belief about a 110 pound girl being ANY type of a physical threat. I immediately made that observations when the main characters were revealed.

    What!? FFXII was fantastic gameplay wise, but lacking story and character wise compared to the previous ones. the combat was downright fun though, except for when you were trying to farm uber rare items from monsters -_-. Which brings me to the much loathed part about FFXII, those godamn random fuking chests. God &^^&% 939$% $I)%) $#$*( the mother %$$%$&* who decided to do that randomized bs with the treasure chests. Just #%$& him!

    When I play FF it isn't really for great gameplay. Odd I know, but it's true, the characters and story better damn well better pull me through.

    Yeah FFXII story made me yawn, same w/ the character development. The gameplay and the environment were great though.

    Gonna pick up FFXIII later this week!

    Apparently FF13 was a disappointment when it came out. I don't think I'm going to play it.
    I'm still finishing FF12.
    I quite enjoyed FF7,9 and 10. Didn't yet finish 8. I'd wish that the FF games go back into the game style of random battles. And the terrain in FF12 is quite disappointing. The main characters have been declining since FFX-2. Cloud, Squall, Zidane and Tidus had their own unique independent character. Whereas to use Yuna as the main is annoying, Vaan was quite childish and I'm not so sure about 13 but I'm sure it would too disappoint me. I'm also not used to playing with women as RPG main characters.

    I didn't really like the "large" story of FFXII, but I did enjoy the scenarios and areas, such as the area that turns from a desert into a flooded lush green area. FFXII seemed more like a living world than other FFs for me; I think that's why I enjoyed it so much.

    Also, I agree about the chests. No reason to do that that I can think of...

    So has anyone started playing it? I tried out like 30 mins of it yesterday. God, I already miss the FFXII gameplay! But the game looks good so far, awesome voice acting and cutscenes.

    I'm inclined to agree. 7 was good because the chracters still had a measure of depth from the 2D days but then I couldn't stand 8, it felt wrong for some reason, like putting on a glove with two finger slots that are too small to fit. I got pretty far in FF9 but once the characters levelled out I dropped it. NEver played 10, and loved 12 just because I'm a sucker for good art (and enjoyed the non-turnbased fighting). I need to play FF3, 4, 5 and 6 (and beat 1 and 2).

    I quit playing 10 hours into it. Once I had to worry about leveling up items I started growing weary, and I eventually just felt like the story (which I like) was being held ransom by fairly repetitive gameplay. No thanks.
