THE HOLY DAY!!!! FFX's 10th ANNIVERSARY is coming!
« on: July 11, 2011, 08:10:53 AM »
It's just a couple of days until...
It's the holy day...the 19th of July 2011. Ten years ago (imagine Auron saying this 8)) this game was released for the VERY FIRST TIME in Japan. Now it's our time to celebrate this!!
What are you guys going to do on that special day? What are the best/worst/funniest/whateverest moments in your FFX history?
Post below!

Just so I can say this before anyone else does, the laughing scene. Funny thing is, when I first saw it, I really thought it was touching. :D Now... I dunno, I guess I'm too sappy. It's really hilarious, but I still think it's touching.

the worst for me would be any time i try to replay that game ::)

probably the worst replayability of the FF series  :P

the best would probably be when i beat Seymour (i think second form) by pilebunkering him with Aeon overdrives because i was underleveled and was sick of his break/shatter XD

A skip scene button would indeed have been quite a solution. Its one of my favourite games and as of today its still the FF who has by far the most hours, but yea after having seen the cut scenes so many times some are getting annoying. And no I'm not talking about the laughing scene.

I actually quite like the laughing scene, as it really shows how much hardship Yuna is prepared to face just to make others happy. If you see it like that the scene actually becomes quite touching.

Best moment? Defeating final Seymour form with Trio of 9999 and Wakka's reels. Nothing says "I'm sick of fighting you" like pushing him aside like he doesn't qualify as a boss.

Worst? Realising a little too late that I'd missed an oh so important chest in Zanarkand and retrieving it now would prove...difficult.

Funniest? Rikku got eaten by a sandworm just before Auron got his turn. He knocked the massive thing for a home run with our desert guide in its stomach. Worried for a moment that she wasn't coming back. Come to think of it the worms always ate Rikku, are the Al Bhed a local delicacy?

Push the button. That's why it's there. If it wasn't meant to be pushed, it wouldn't be a button.

Its even more fun when the guide explaining where to find the chest doesn't warn you about its new guardian ::)

To celebrate I started replaying it and writing a fan fiction. To be honest I think it's very replayable. Should I not want to watch a particular scene (the ones between Zanarkand and Besaid) I just mute my TV.

Best moment, watching the sphere levels rise using Overdrive -> AP, Triple AP, Triple Overdrive weapons against Don Tonberry.

Worst/Funniest in hindsight. Talking to a cute child on the Mushroom Rock Road and

it's a good thing the game is quite easy once you get past seymour battles 1-3 and cloister of trials

The game is overall easy if you know what you're doing. Only thing I need is time :D Which I have just not much of.

It's true, apart from the secret extras, pretty much all you have to do to complete it is never run. Fight everything and you'll be stronger than almost anything you have to fight.

Push the button. That's why it's there. If it wasn't meant to be pushed, it wouldn't be a button.
