I know this may strike this as odd to some of you but I HATE Final Fantasy 7. I'm sure it was mostly due to the fact that it brung in some of the most annoying fanboys I ever seen, sometimes even moreso annoying than the Inu Yasha fanboys. I recently watch Advent Children and I felt like puking almost throughout the whole movie.
I will admit that I had quite a few memories and there were some pretty memorable characters (Vincent and Red XIII really come to mind) but for crissakes, there are BETTER Final Fantasy games out there and if you don't agree then you're wrong. :P
It's really, really hard to pick out amoungst all of the Final Fantasy games to find which are my favorites. I've enjoyed each of them thremendously (even FFVII despite how much I hate it) but the game that really opened my eyes was FFX. This was truely a next-generation FF game with top-notch production values and that game was full of emotion. Other FF games that truely stood out to me where FFIX and FFT.
