wat? Magus is almost as much of a whiny bitch as Sephiroth but not half as annoying. At least Janus's mother was a total bitch/badass character.

For the record I've played every FF up until XIII came out.

As Auri points out there weren't really any deep characters in the first three games (not to mention FF2 is possibly the worst game in the series. DUR DUR HIT MYSELF TO MAKE MYSELF STRONGER DUR DUR)

FFIV had somewhat compelling characters but I got through the game so fast that the story went by at a breakneck speed and I didn't really have time to develop an attachment to anyone. Maybe if I took longer to really get into the game? I just felt like the emotional moments were sort of forced (which I'm sure many will say about other FF games as well) but this was just my personal experience.

Also, to an extent technological advances have allowed games to flesh out characters more completely than was possible before. (more storage space for text, more unique npcs, voiceovers/detailed models, etc.)

I know to you it may seem that EVERYONE would agree if they had played the games therefore the only possibility is that people simply haven't played the games. Unfortunately some people HAVE played the games and just don't like them.

I love FF4. But if they'd had unlimited space for writing, and had put in the original script (reportedly 4x the length!), it probably would have been pretty bad. Square doesn't have very good writers, so keeping the length down probably helped a lot :-)

When I was younger, and playing through FF4 for the first time, it was really easy to get into the story and characters anyway, because of the other factors--the music, the game itself, even the graphics. Sure, it was almost all fake drama ("Oh, he wasn't really evil. Oh wait, he's evil! Oh wait, he's not. Oh, why did he die!? Oh, he didn't. Neither did he? Wow, neither did he! What, they didn't die? HOW MANY FAKE DEATHS DOES THIS GAME NEED?") but it was still a great experience for me as a child :-)

Lol, sorry, wayfaerer... I was just ribbin ya. My first thought when you stated you looked like Zach was that you were made from a bunch of triangles, so I had to throw out something equally ridiculous.

Mog from FFIX really is my favorite FF character, though! She's the best... almost like a larger version of Auri.

wayfaerer you have some kind of aura about you that attracts people to troll you.

It's not our fault :(.

also really nate? mog? She's barely in the game long enough to have a personality. Might as well say red mage from ff1 is your favorite character.

Although to be fair I did think Blank was pretty badass in FF9 and he barely shows up more than 2-3 times the whole game.

He saves your ass a bunch of times, such a bro.

Better to be cute with no personality than to be ugly with a crappy personality like every other FF character!


Nah, but seriously, Mog's aesthetic design and her lightheartedness are what make her enjoyable for me. While she is more of a supplemental character to Eiko than anything else, the small amount of personality she shows is fun and engaging to me.

Also the red mage from FFI is a perfectly legitimate choice! Someone may prefer that character for any number of reasons... such as design or game play mechanics. This is a "favorite FF character" thread, not a "character with the deepest story/best developed personality/whatever other meaningless qualifier" thread. As such, the reasoning is up to the one making the decision about which character is their favorite!

fair enough nate, well stated case... and karathrow? eff you! nah im just kidding; passive aggressiveness is a curse really.

also, that mog debate is interesting--I agree in saying that she was scarcely present enough to be given credit, in a way. this is because, the way i see it, her character was developed in such a way that making her more important in the storyline might have subtracted from the substance of the game, and the little appearances she DOES make are very touching. imo of course.

also, blank is badass, i must say.

not my favorite, but an awesome NPC nonetheless.

greatest game in the series? quite possibly, though it isnt my favorite, VI will always hold that spot. taught me to read.

/highfive

You probably explained why Mog is my favorite character better than I did. She did have a pivotal, although somewhat minor, role with the whole Madeen/Maduin/Madain/Mandarin Orange story arc, though... which almost made me shed a man tear. If I were an actual man, I would have shed one for sure.

I should have never poorly semi-trolled you, wayfaerer! We are MogSistas4Lyfe!

with that discussed to pick a "fave" mog, it would have to be the mog from VI. man, he was straight up badass for a moogle.

but eiko's panty troll mog (no offence intended whatsoever), was just an awesome spin on the character of moogles. the storyline really presented its depth with that madeen thing

I feel the exact same way, which is why FF4 is SO nostalgic for me. I think the first time I played it I was 8, rented it from the game store.
