  3. Why do people say FF9 is underrated, when it's obviously FF12?

FF9 is given so much undue praise for being an OK game that people will look back at it as overrated. 12, however, is very underrated because very little people talk about it and pass it up.

My only hope is...good.

No fanboys for 12.

Just fans.

We don't need 12 to go the way of being overrated.

FF9 is overrated. It doesn't hold up well at all and the advancement system was a huge step backwards. It has some charm and it's not the worst way to spend 40 hours but nostaliga seems to be boosting this game's value more than it deserves. I can't play it for very long without falling asleep. The combat is repetitive and boring.

All that said, I would love to see a remake at some point if FFVII does well. But with a few more payers of complexity on the advancement system.

Check 1truths Twitter. He said even though he likes 12 more... 9 is better.

Mind = blown?
I was modded once for saying please understand, when I challenged it the mod said please understand.

Thanks to my friend, I'm actually much more in love with FFXII now. I specifically want the Zodiac Job System, though. It would make the game so much more interesting...

Maybe they'll remake it soon someday?

Rumors say yes. We just don't know which system.

Never have finished ix.. I like it.. just like it. But yeah battle system so boring but everything else is awesome i love the soundtrack, the char, because i have the digital copy someday ill finish what i started..

But sure ffxii is so underated just because its kind of different than the other ff.. The map, battle system, too much quest that doesn't have anything to do with main story, bad summon and haters gonna go on like forever.. But despite of that xii still the best for me..

For dificulty reason, exploration, various party set up (ijzs), 13 cool esper battle with the best battle soundtrack, and sakimoto is the best ff composer followed by nobuo uematsu.. Normaly this is not what ff fanboy looking for..

Yes, that is the best way I can think of to describe it. There are those out there who look back on FFIX as some kind of beacon of how they did it right back in the day and I'm 99% sure that's the rose colored glasses. It's a GOOD game. It's got some decent moments, a decent story, the chocobo hot and cold game was a decent mini game and I liked the chocographs, it was very rewarding and didn't feel like a chore. I LIKED a lot about it, but there's nothing great here. The game dragggged on at points. The battle system was a bit simplistic and grinding your way with a crappy weapon for an ability was just annoying. If I get a new weapon, I want to f'n use it.

And again, my most vivid memories of this game are from falling asleep while grinding. It's the only one I never personally beat (though while hanging out with a friend I let him take over and finish it up for me so we could see the ending)
