What, by turning up the framerate so they don't bore you to failure?

I feel slightly dirty at inadvertantly starting this particular thread, being the raging Dragon Quest fanboy that I am, but the farther I get into the FFIV remake, the more I enjoy it.  But then again, is a Final Fantasy game where you have to Slow and defense-down the bosses really a Final Fantasy game?

With regards to X, I probably would've played through it about 3 more times if there were an option to auto-fill Sphere Grid nodes you pass.

Playing through FF7 for the first time in about 10 years. It's a lot better than I remember it being, but I'm still struck by how flat and uninteresting all these characters are. I know the plot is mostly about Sephiroth and all that, but Jesus, woman abusing Cid is the most likable character.

Still better than 8 where ever character made me want to choke them.

I don't like when console publishers(?) pull this secondary release bullshit.  Are publishing companies being such fuckers that we get P3 before the game is really done, after which we get P3:FES?

At least in the case of Persona 3, you've got it backwards.  Persona 3 comes out at full price, collectors buy the shit out of it because it's Atlus and therefore likely to be hard to find, driving the price up, and then FES comes out with the full game included at 19.99.  So, really, FES was an amazing gesture compared to the shit Square pulls in Japan with their "international editions".

God I hate it when FFXII cheats.

ME: Okay, this is working fine.  We've got the boss down to 10% health and...
BOSS: *one-hit kill*
ME: YOU CAN'T DO THAT!
BOSS: Sorry, is this better?  *infinite combo*
ME: NO, NO IT ISN'T.

No, seriously, Square, fucking cut it the fucking hell out.  I am tired of spending 20 minutes finding a boss, whittling it down to such-and-such percent, and then you telling me that I'll need about another ten levels before I ever have a chance of winning.  This is not fun.

Seriously after the first few dungeons the whole game feels like a chore.  Is there any payoff at all for sticking with it?

I think I got into the habit of either saving up my main party's Quickenings for when that happened, or saving my backup party's (who I never leveled up), which was useful at least one or twice to dish out some fast damage during those parts.

I didn't like using huge amounts of mana for an attack that might not actually do a lot of damage, so I never used Quickenings.  Unfortunately, I found out about at the point where I had to fight the 6-mandragora team that the boss fights are almost BUILT around Quickenings after a certain point.  So I quit.

My quickenings don't do nearly enough damage to actually turn the situation around.  The main problem is that I'm actually genuinely skilled at the game enough that I can tough it out with an opponent that seriously outclasses me, as long as it doesn't do anything ridiculous like off my whole party in one attack.  Which of course it does.  But only after wasting my time.

This has not happened only once.

I wanted to love FFXII, but I agree with poorly localized guy; the bosses are cheap and stupid and I hate them.

Also, Penelo's hair.

I didn't mind the bosses and I loved Penelo's hair.  Actually, Penelo in general is the only female character in that game that doesn't seem utterly ridiculous.  It's a shame since the characters in 12 are otherwise pretty good.

I see nothing utterly ridiculous about a Scandinavian rabbit woman.

Oh.. oh wait. Yeah. That is silly.

I find Ashe's ridiculous hooker suit to be the worst offender.
