Never Played a Final Fantasy game, where do I start?

16 September 2012 - 02:06 PM

I've never played a Final Fantasy game before, but am interested in the series. I am led to believe that the series doesn't have recurring characters or an overarching plot, so I would like to play a good one that would introduce me to the series well first.
I am here to ask Final Fantasy fans, where do I start?
I own most nintendo consoles, and have access to the virtual console. I do not have a playstation or Xbox system, and am not willing to get one. I'm not willing to download any illegally online using an emulator.

Fossil Fighters 3 Discussion

15 August 2012 - 10:36 AM

So, I think that a third Fossil Fighters game for the Wii U is fairly likely. It's a successful series, and all it needs is a touch screen, which the Wii U has.
In case you don't know, Fossil Fighters is a turn based RPG series owned partially by Nintendo. In it, you excavate fossils, which you then clean and "revive" into a slightly altered form, which you use in battle against other fghters. It has been well received by critics and the public alike.
The mechanics and combat system are very solid and entertaining. If a third game is made, the biggest improvement that needs to be made is the library of creatures. It's not very comprehensive. In the first game they had a bunch of dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and a few Ice age mammals and aquatic reptiles. In Champions, they added a couple of Synapsids, some Trilobites, Ammonites, as well as Anomolocaris and Tanystropheus. This, isn't great. There is a LOT of potential they are ignoring. First off, they've got 1 iconic Cambrian animal, Anomolocaris. What about Opabinia? Hallucinagenia? Marella? Pterygotus? A crinoid? There is a lot of potential there. Furthermore they've all but ignored the Carboniferous period, which also has potential. Arthropleura and Meganeura come to mind. They added Dimetrodon and Edaphosaurus to represent Synapsids, which is a good start, but there is a lot of potential in the completely unrepresented Therapsid branch of Synapsids. Even within the Mesozoic, there are issues, mainly the complete lack of Ornithomimids and only 1 Icthyosaur.
Also, they need to get rid of those stupid abbreviated names. Put in the real Genus, would you?

If you would like to respond to this, or have ides of your own, please post.
