Not sure if this exists or not, but feel free to lock if you need to...

but what da heck is Necron?


Final Fantasy IX (ファイナルファンタジーIX, Fainaru Fantajī Nain?) is a console role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix), and the ninth installment in the Final Fantasy video game series. It was released in 2000, and is the third and last numbered Final Fantasy game for the Sony PlayStation video game console.

Set in a fantasy world of Gaia, Final Fantasy IX's plot centers on a war between several nations, sparked by an ambitious queen. Players follow a young thief named Zidane Tribal, who joins with several others to defeat the Queen. The plot shifts, however, when the characters realize that the Queen is a puppet for an arms dealer named Kuja.


It's sad how no one discusses this game especially when it's so fun and yet short. I have no clue why people dislike this game compared to any other Final Fantasy . So, why? Have any of you ever played it?

JOBS


The character's command list is presented in a window opposite the ATB gauge list; while all characters can physically attack the enemy or use an item from the player's inventory, they also possess unique abilities. For instance, the thief Zidane can steal items from the enemy, Eiko and Garnet can summon "eidolons" to aid the party, and Vivi can use black magic to damage the opposition.


That really means the jobs are set for characters..^

Limit Breaks (Yes, it has those)


These character-specific commands change when the player goes into "Trance mode", which is activated for a short duration when an uncontrollable gauge fills as character sustains damage in a style similar to the Limit Breaks used in Final Fantasy VII. When the gauge is full, the character's strength is amplified, and the player can select special attack commands.[5] Zidane's "Skill" command list, for example, changes to "Dyne", allowing him to execute powerful attacks; Vivi's "Black Magic" command evolves into "Double Black", allowing him to cast two magic spells simultaneously.


Story (How it starts, and more drama is created of course)


Final Fantasy IX begins with Zidane and the Tantalus Theater Troupe kidnapping Princess Garnet during her sixteenth birthday celebration. The group learns that Garnet, who is concerned about Queen Brahne's increasingly erratic behavior, actually wanted to escape to Lindblum to meet with Regent Cid,[15] and had planned to stow away on the theater ship.


There was basically a war between Alexandria (Garnet's Castle/Village) and other places just because some guy was controlling Queen Brahne (Alexandria's Queen) to make her evil. All the "heroes" find out then the guy wants to destroy the world (as simple) but at the end you fight some weird thingy....

So, does anybody here like this game as one of the best Final Fantasy games ever?

It's one of my favorite Final Fantasy games. The only thing I could complain about was the Trance mode. You couldn't save it like in VII or VIII. Which means most of the time you activated it against normal enemies. <<;

It was okay. But there were some things that put me off.

1) Trance can't be saved, which sucks.
2) The character design looked like it was popular 10 years ago. Seriously, Final Fantasy VIII was a good headstart into the 3D character age, but FF IX ruined it by killing FF VIII's efforts.

Only people who actually played anything before 7 would probably appreciate 9 the most. Half the people don't like it because they don't get it. As for Character design, 10 was the successor of 8. 9 was just a very well done side project which is better than 10 and 8 anyways.

Anyways 9 is in my top 4. 6 will always be first for me! And 9, 7 and 5 can duke it out for second.

I have nothing against the characters designs in IX. I actually like them. IX was trying to return to the series' roots thus why you have the more traditional fantasy setting as opposed to VII and VIII.

Final Fantasy 9 is one of my favourites! I also think it's pretty weird that some people try to ignore this game.
I sooo want to play it again, I have MANY good memories because of it ;__;
