So the Final Fantasy sale ends tomorrow. I still can't figure out which one to get. I picked up VII during the sale, and I already own FFIV Complete. I'm debating whether to get FFVIII or FFIX. I'm tempted to get both, but I would HATE to add even more to my backlog, so I only want to get one. I haven't played any of the FF games 1-10 except 3 (haven't finished IV or VII). Could I get some input on which one to get?
Get IX. I started it a couple weeks ago and I'm surprised how good it is. If I wasn't blinded by nostalgia for VII I'd say IX would be my favorite out of VII, VIII, IX.
you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.
Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

The card game within the game is pretty fun too if memory serves me right.

At least PS+ update is decent this week. I was beginning to wonder what was wrong with it for awhile.
Nothing at all wrong with it in my opinion. I've enjoyed the most of the recent games and discounts we've got.
So dragonborn can't be bought from the web store...son of a

What Final Fantasy game should I get? Also, do I need to download Plus games to keep them?
You don't need to download them. Just make sure you purchase them and have them on your download list.
FF8 was designed as an entry title. If you're new to them or the genre, it's a good place to start. Tactics is my favorite, but it's the largest time sink and I'd recommend playing a demo before buying it. It's not for everyone. FF9 and FF7 are both great. Although I'd save FF9 for later on since you'll enjoy the battle system more. FF7 is the popular choice.
FF6 is hailed as a fan favorite and focuses on the cast rather than just a mc. And has the best villian, imo. Wasn't a fan of FF5. Origins is fine too.
Yes! I am in a signature!

Hell I was just glad to see that they haven't completely shoved the Vita in to a corner over at Sony HQ. Price drop is good. The known releases for the rest of the year, while each one does look pretty awesome, is a really short list. The poor little platform needs support!
That said, is anyone interested in FFX HD? It feels like Square really missed the window of opportunity for that thing - unless it comes out looking like XIII I expect it'll be a huge pile of 'meh' for everyone when it finally lands. They should obviously just divert their remaining company resources to making Final Fantasy Tactics 2 and release it as soon as possible.
Square should outsource FFT to some other company since they are never going to do anything with it. Hell maybe they should outsource some other games too or sell the rights. Get somebody else to make a sequel to Chrono or Vagrant Story, someone else remake FF 6-9.

wouldn't mind having maverick hunter, but since my plus ends in about a week and a half I would have rather it been on sale for $5.
You could probably beat it in a week and a half. It's a fun game.

Mega Man X Maverick Hunters is nice as well since I have the UMD. A digital copy is nice if I ever get a Vita.

Tactics is my favorite, but it's the largest time sink and I'd recommend playing a demo before buying it. It's not for everyone.
A demo would do FFT no justice what so ever. The demo would probably just throw you into the first or second fight which doesn't even come close to scratching the surface of what makes the game so awesome. I remember buying it the day it came out on PS1. It was the same day I bought the actual system. My mind was BLOWN.

I'd suggest going into Battle Mode & choosing the lower difficulty so you can get a basic feel for each character. Some characters won't be very good until you level up and gain more attacks & abilities such as speed & jump boosts (looking at you, Exdeath. Ugh), but once you're familiar with a character's attack style, their strengths & weaknesses, and made them more powerful, it makes for a great game.
I got Duodecim since I have wanted that game for the longest time. Alll I can say it is hard as heck or I probably just suck at it, also I am pretty low leveled right now. Though the fights and moves are pretty darn epic.

Got it free on pc but will pick up the vita version for sure! It's the perfect game for a handheld.

Nice. Seems like the perfect fit for vita! I'll be double dipping.

HM looks like a bloody fun time but it'll have to wait until HM comes free to PS+ for me. Vanquish is a great add to PS+ I've always wanted to play Vanquish after having run through the demo some years back so it was a title I had in the back of my mind to pick up in the bargain bin. Too bad it doesn't feature vs or co-op multiplayer. If I remember right; not having online multiplayer was the main reason I never bought it in the 1st place.

I saw this news on IGN and was very excited. Watching the gameplay reminds me of old school GTA. I would love to play this on the Vita.

The list of games makes me feel like PSN had a down year.
It is a pretty lame list. What's worse is that Journey is nominated for a bunch of categories and will probably win them all, which means we are losing out on discounts. I'd like to get Rainbow Moon on the cheap, but there is no way it is going to beat Journey or Soundshapes in voting.
