What's with the outrage meme? FFVI and FFVII fans by Boschian-Fantasies What's with the outrage meme? FFVI and FFVII fans by Boschian-Fantasies
Yeah, I noticed something about the FF fandom in general:

Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy VII get the most attention out of the whole entire series, thus, leading to a horde of crazies who worship the games like they were the holy gospel.

You know what, I'm one of the few FF fans who isn't much of a FFVI nor FFVII fan. I despise FFVII and neutral on FFVI. You are probably wondering what my favorite Final Fantasy games of all time are, huh?

WARNING: Unpopular opinion ahead. Try to stay calm and civil.

Favorite NES/Famicom FF game: FFIII
Favorite SNES/Super Famicom FF game: FFV (Yes, you read that correctly. I like the SNES FF game that everyone hates. Deal with it!)
Favorite PSX FF game: Final Fantasy IX (I know, I know. I like FFIX and it's hatedom is rabid. Get over it)
Favorite PS2 FF game: FFXII (Yes, it's true people! I seem to like the games that don't get enough love)

I had to get this out, because this was eating at my mind for a while. 

To put it bluntly, people are allowed to like the things you hate, and hate the things you like. Isn't freedom of speech and wonderful thing?

So it's kinda like how people rabidly praise most of the Disney Renaissance films. (Like The Lion King and The Little Mermaid.)

Yes indeed. That is perfect comparison!

Yep. :) Much like The Lion King and The Little Mermaid, Final Fantasy VI and VII are too overhyped and have extremely cutthroat and/or rabid fans that'll attack you if you say anything bad about it. 


Really fucked up in retrospect.

FFVIII? Don't you mean FFVII?

Sorry, typo. But still. Both FFVI and FFVII have terrible fanbases on par with The Lion King and The Little Mermaid fanbases and are also extremely overrated.

THANKS FOR MAKING THIS <3 

But as I said before, I do like FF VII since it sparked my interest in the FF series, but there are still better FF games out there.
And I actually got to play bits of Final Fantasy IX recently and I love it so far <3 (It actually really feels like a fantasy game, plus Vivi is adorable)

I know how you feel though, getting into many things that don't get enough love. (I even have a share of a lot of underrated games I enjoy)

13 gets too much hate! Many FF fans keep kicking and punching the people who like 13, saying they are "bringing trash to the franchise and making it bad."

I confronted those types of fans and they got butthurt over opinions. This is why I hate fanbases in general and why I stay away from them.

I thought FFXIII should have been a visual novel instead.

Agreed, it's too linear to be considered a game.

Not a fan of Final Fantasy, and I don't care what you love or hate. Some people really need to calm their tits.

Yes indeed. It's just a video game after all people. It's not like it's the second coming of a messiah or something.

Heh, rabid fandom is something I'll never get.  To me FFVI is the best in the series, but I'm not getting my flamethrower out because you say you don't think so.  No accounting for tastes and all that.  You like what you like, and you don't have to excuse yourself to anyone for that.

And well, FFV is actually my second favorite, so we don't disagree completely.  To me it's 1: FFVI, 2: FFV, 3: FFIV.  Yes, all the three SNES ones are my favorites.  FFVII definitely had its flaws and plot holes, but for a first transition to 3D it's not a bad start IMHO.  FFIX is nice, but feels a bit rushed in places.  The only ones I really don't like are FFVIII for its shallow characters and tedious, illogical game mechanics and FFX for its heavy railroading and frustrating side quests.  And I don't even consider those bad games.  Just not as good as the others.

I'm glad you respect my opinions. I respect your's as well.

There needs to be more sane FFVI fans like you.
