My sister and I played this for days when it came out, I remember her staying up all night dogging lightning Bolts in The Thunder Plains to get Lulu's ultimate weapon - I had long given up. The sphere grid is awesome, controlling summons is awesome, the characters are awesome, Blitzball is awesome, the monster rancher is awesome. I really want the PAL version so I can take a shot at Penance, when they release the HD version they BETTER include the Dark Aeons and such. I'll be pissshed off if they don't.
Thanks Yeul Kreiss for the sigpic!

Mod Edit: This would be considered a short, spammy post in a post count section. Maybe you can tell us why you thought it was great?

FF10 was a nice game, however the script fell flat sometimes there was a really nice story there so give it to us how it is intended not through immature lines and not repeat the same plot point 10 times just to draw out cut scenes
battle system was nice i like this more easy going wait time system
blitz-ball sucked because i never took the time to learn it lol
Tidus was a stupid jock he acted cheesy and stupid all the way til the end

FFX is my favorite of all time so I want to answer your question personally. Before you mentioned there are different types of gamers, or different types of FF gamers. You are the kind that likes to explore and find treasures, spells, weapons, etc. I'm not that type of gamer. I actually find that type of gaming to be boring and a chore. Unless it's a really, really good weapon or spell....I'm not going to bother with it. I may occasionally deviate from the story to travel around the world map in older games. But this is usually for me to level up a bit and occasionally find some goodies. But I don't seem to do this as often as other gamers. Other gamers make a huge deal over whether a game is "open world" or "too linear". I honestly can't understand why people make a big deal over these two things (for the record, I am impartial to XIII. I know XIII was probably the most linear game of them all but that wasn't my problem with it. I really don't mind linearity. My problem was the story, lack of character progression, and I generally didn't care too much for the characters themselves, the lack of towns, plus other little things.).

My favorite battle systems in the series include turn based and ATB. But I absolutely loved FFX's use of Conditional Turn Based. It's one of my favorite in the series. But my absolute favorite battle system would actually be the sequel, X-2. It was fast paced and strategic with the use of dresspheres.
So, why do I love X so much? The story, the battle system, the challenge of bosses like Penance, and accomplishing the minigames that others find annoying. I remember how happy I was when I got a score of 0.00 in the chocobo race. Or the first time I dodged 205 bolts in a row. Granted, when I replay FFX I usually skip over these parts considering I've done it a few times and now it's gotten old (lol)....but the first time? I loved the challenge. As for blitzball: it's a fun side game I play when I'm getting tired of battling. I don't take it as seriously as others.
I respect your opinion on FFX. I just personally can't see how anyone can hate it. Just like you can't imagine why anyone would love it. But I do have to disagree with you on one point.....you claim that much of FFX's music is crap. I honestly don't know how to reply to that.

Ahh Final Fantasy X. One of my favorites by far (excluding FF VIII and FF VII). I loved everything about this game, Wakka really annoyed the hell out of me half way through but i got over that pretty quickly. I loved the system of where you get all your abilities and strength, magic and other upgrades, the graphics for it's time were amazing (In the Europe version, if you looked on the back it says something like "enhanced facial system", that amazed the hell out of me, then PS3 came out ) I really could not point out a bad point in this game so I'd give it a 9/10.

Love it. My favorite FF game out of the series. Everything about it I just loved, the characters, the locations, the storyline, the gameplay, all of it. I thought the Sphere Grid System was a nice switch-up from the normal "Levelling-up" system from some of the previous games and also gave a bit of variety as well as choice to the player as in which direction to move to and which attribute to level up on.
In my opinion, the characters are all unique in their own way compared to one another. I didn't find one of them dull and boring, not even Kimahri who rarely talks throughout the game. Another point that even more makes me love this game is the fact that I grew up around it throughout my childhood and still have memories of playing it when I was still very young. xD The battle system is also something I liked about the game, I wasn't too keen on the whole ATB system from the previous few games, although it kept the player "on the ball" during the battle, I prefer a system that gives you time to plan out and think up a strategical way to combat and overcome the enemy, which, to me, steps up the mark in terms of combat in the FF Series.
In terms of sound and music, I think that the soundtrack is one of the best in the series, with several memorable and catchy pieces being played throughout and I also liked the variation and sample pieces of "To Zanarkand", such as "Sprouting" and the "Ending Theme". On the whole, I'd say nearly all the aspects on the game were "spot on" and perfect to me and for that, I love it.

My favorite of the numbered series, followed by XII. (X-2, though, is not on the list at all.)

I love it, of course. After IX, it's my favorite Final Fantasy. The story was great (and sad as heck), and the characters were all very interesting -- and very human. The world was intriguing and beautiful as well, there are certain parts of the world that I can just sit and stare at while I'm playing.

Gotta Catch 'em all! :D
Being the first FF on the PS2 was a huge jump for the FF series. The added voice acting and the graphics for its time was simply amazing. It was one of my first PS2 games and boy, it blew me away! I was hugely impressed with everything that went into the game. (: I adored all the main characters, I loved the plot and I loved Yuna x Titus as well (: the only thing that disappointed me was the linear kind of style that the previous FF's didn't have I was use to being able to roam anywhere at anytime. That's about the only thing I can really complain about. It was different from the rest of the series and set FF to a whole new level of greatness. fantastic game. c:
