FF1, 2, and 3 were some of my favorite games as a kid. I'd really like to go back and beat 2 and 3 now, but those games are huge.
I played FF7 for a few hours and gave up.. I'd really like to try one of the newer ones. How many of the others have you played, Dan?
i saw Warmech when i was a kid
i beat 1, got to the last guy on 2 and played some of 3
played 7 for PC but only got about 1/2 way through. played 8 for PS2 and it was pretty good but again stopped about 1/2 way through
12 is awesome, but some purists dont like it. they've done away with random battles so now you can see all enemies and run from them if you wish. it's still turn-based battles though, and you can set up "gambits" so you dont have to keep hitting the same commands (i.e. auto Cure if players HP falls below 50%, attack closest enemy, etc)
you also have alot of freedom to customize each characters spells, weapons, abilities, but it ends up that for ease you end up giving alot of them the same stuff
i'm probably 85% done with the game, but there are alot of side quests and hunts i can still do. i guess there is one random hunt where the monster has 50,000,000 HP and literally takes around 5 hours to kill (although you can leave and save). the record is a 56 minute kill
anyway, i'd highly reccommend FFXII, i've really enjoyed it and if my wife will let me i'll probably buy a PS3 just to be able to play FFXIII
