Feel free to post a comment on your views on this underrated masterpiece.

For me, FFXII will always be the game that showed the direction JRPGs needed to head down in order to stay relevant this gen (PS3/360/Wii). Had more JRPGs evolved off FFXII, the genre wouldn't be in the mess it is now. Xenoblade evolved off FFXII and thus went on to become to most critically acclaimed console JRPG this gen. In that sense, FFXII may not be universally liked by the FF fanbase, but the path it took the FF series down was vindicated. It was one that would ensure mainline FF would survive this gen. The game is truly an unsung champion and one that had tremendous foresight of the upcoming WRPG onslaught on consoles that began with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

I have hope that FFXVI will be the mainline FF that follows in FFXII's footsteps. Hiroyuki Ito will direct, Yasumi Matsuno will freelance write, and the game will greatly evolve off the FFXII game design, battle system, and world scale. That's the FFXII successor all Ivalice Alliance fans are waiting for.

FFXII will always be a special gaming experience for me.

Well how about that? Happy birthday Final Fantasy XII, one of my favourite games. I bought this and Valkyrie Profile 2 on the same day about 7 years ago. When's the anniversary of you not releasing your Zodiac Brave Theory though? I can't wait for the seventh anniversary of that.

I hope they release a FFXII HD Remaster in the near future. As for my Zodiac Brave Theory, it will be released when I have the drive to support it.

I must admit though I really enjoy reading you and other people post about it and I want to thank you and everyone else involved in giving me this enjoyment. You've inspired me, and I've decided I'm gonna write my own essay. Its going to be about your the topics you've created and the posts on them and why they made me laugh so much. And I'm going to talk about it for a year and hype it up and then not release it ever.

Ya I'd like to see an HD release. I'll agree. I'd really like an HD english release of Final Fantasy XII International. Zodiac Job Story because I've never played it and would like to play it. I'd like to know why they made a game called Final Fantasy XII International and then not release it internationally. Kind of reminds me of you.

If they release a FFXII HD Remaster on PS3, I hope they add some new ganeplay elements to make up for the lack of a FFXII-2.

I'm gonna give you advice. I don't hate you or anything man, like I said I enjoyed reading your topics and stuff. But you need to not care what people think about you or the things you say. If you really believe in your theory, and its really a thing, you should just release it. Just put it out there into the universe. Opinions are subjective. There's always going to be people who disagree with you. There's no way to avoid that accept maybe by not coming to GameFAQs. Thats kinda a bad place to go for that. But if you believe in your opinions it shouldn't matter what others think. Who cares. Do songwriters not write songs because they're afraid some people won't like them? Don't let the fear of what other people think of you prevent you from doing what you want to do.

The very purpose of an essay is to explain something. So basically your essay should in essence explain itself. An essay explains a point of view. You're afraid people will disagree with your point of view? So what? Why does everyone have to agree with you? You'll never get everyone to agree on anything. If your essay is real release it. If its not stop talking about it. If you don't know when you are releasing it now you should probably change your sig. Tomorrow is November 2013 you know.

Thanks for advice and support. I still plan to release my theory in November, so I don't play to change my sig just yet. :-)

hahah. just not November 2013 anymore. just like not in November 2012 either. hey, what happened to that OTHER redundant topic of yours where you just copy-pasted your own trolling? oh, what? it got modded for blatant trolling? maybe you should just STOP making the same topic over and over and over. like this one as well. "I like final fantasy XII" is not really a legitimate discussion topic AGAIN, now is it? and lo and behold, all it does is dive back into "hey, thanks for the lengthy troll let's reference your nonexistent thesis" which is your real desire, but if you titled the topic that, it'd get modded again, now wouldn't it.

go away Galvanization. go coat something in zinc.
