What do you think? Personally I like their list.

"Vaan on the other hand doesn’t seem to have much going for him beyond his constantly stated desire to become a sky pirate, and his ability to stand in the background of cutscenes while more important people speak."
That made me chuckle.

The first bit on Terra description is definitly biased.

The bit on Tidus description about the laughing scene is pathetic at this point. Yes, the laughing scene is taked out of context, but that doesn't mean that it is not bad.

The lack of Ramza in that ranking is disturbing.
Reinforcements?
I am the reinforcements.

The bottom half is okay. But

  • Tidus top 3
  • Noctis and Cecil over Squall
  • Not sure how I feel about Zidane as #1 since he almost had no flaws outside of his incident in Terra

It was just the main numbered titles. They didn’t even rank protags from the sequels of the main titles so Tactics didn’t have a place being there either.

XV might be garbage as a whole, but Noctis is surely one of the better written characters.

I agree with most of their comments, but not their ranking. And I really do wish that they accept that Vaan is, as they mention, an audience proxy rather than a primary protagonist - it is, without doubt, Ashe's story. While some of the other main party characters have crossovers with events, Ashe is the only one who is concerned with absolutely everything, and the one that the primary story is concerned with. Seriously, trade out ANY of the other MCs for literally anything else - up to and including inanimate objects - and the story still pans out the same way since Ashe is the one that needs to make the decisions important to the plot.

Thats where it’s from. 1 and 2 are in my top 5 RPGs along with suikoden II, skies of Arcadia, and probably persona 5.

I figured as much. The part where Ghaleon goes like: "Not Ghaleon, dear Quark, magic emperor Ghaleon!" always made me chuckle for some reason.
