I tried playing FF13 years ago and tried so hard to find any good out of that game, I tried to find ANY semblance of enjoyment, but there was fucking none. 60 hours of my life wasted because of that piece of shit.

It plays like one because many items in the game can't be acquired except through random chance. And many other items require grinding enemies for a ridiculous amount of time. The retarded distribution doesn't of what drops what didn't help. For example to build one of the best weapons in the game requires an item that drops off a semi-hidden enemy in one of the beginning areas.

You can already play FF12 IZJS edition in PCSX2 or whatever PS2 emulator you use, and it runs flawlessly. As far as I can tell, they didn't really add anything of significance between the IZJS release and the Zodiac Age re-release. They've both got the fast-forward mode, the zodiac job boards instead of the default sphere grids, and all that good stuff.

Why play it for money when you can play it for free?

FFXII had the most interesting and fun combat system out of all of the mainline FF games and had the same kinda abilities and spells you would find in the other games. The gambit system was a wonder to use too. It was amazing and didnt go full retard like FFXIII. If you just dismiss it as MMO combat you are either trying to bait me, wrong or just plain retarded.

The games has a very nice world, and the combat system with the exception of the spell/ability queuing is quite good. The combat system also features a sort of instruction set you can give your AI partners so that you don't have to micromanage so much. It focuses on commands, and priorities. Higher up commands are given greater priority. Negatives include some areas being to large, and too bland, horrible mini-games, MMO tier grinding/gathering, and a story that had potential but ultimately falls flat. Speaking of the story it becomes very obvious they were massive changes made likely very late in development, as none of the characters are fleshed out very much. This game can be described as having many good things executed very badly. Fran is best girl.

FFXII does not play like an MMO, it uses the ATB system seen in the previous entries but in a 3D environment and allows you to pause to queue commands.

There are no hotbars, you can actually move while attacking and your gauge fills up, and you can customise the party AI through gambits.

Xenoblade acts far more like an MMO than FFXII does and everyone here is sucking XBC2's dick despite it being a terrible game.

XII has some of the best worldbuilding the entire series has seen, a very subtle plot that's not overly anime (muh you're the great hero of the world).

The anon who complained about item drop rates clearly never played the game or was too retarded to understand how chaining works as if you kill the same type of enemy again and again the drop rates, quantities and qualities improve dramatically.

XII has a plethora of content and a beautiful soundtrack.

That being said why the fuck would you buy it on PC when it flopped on PS4 and is now dirt cheap? I picked up a copy of Zodiac Age for £15 and i'm sure I could have found it cheaper if I looked.

Also the Ivalice world has the best races of any FF game, though I admit the Tactics games give them a lot more charm and personality.

>FF always did bullshit like this no matter what entry.

Oh yeah. How about the zodiac spear? It's obtained from a certain container in a high level level area IF and only IF you have not opened other specific containers in four different locations two of which are located in starting areas. So of course you will open them, and you will not get the item. You can obtain the spear in another area, but only from a container that has a 25% chance of appearing when you zone in, and it's still a one in one thousand chance. You can use a glitch to break the RNG though to get it, but that's because of shitty programming.

You stick out like a sore thumb. FF12 has the most grinding of any of the other titles because of the ridiculously low drop rate of some items. This is not even counting the absurd amount of grinding that it takes to get items like grand armor/helm without using an exploit. You're also the idiot buying his games.

>ridiculously low drop rate of some items

>Traveler's Tips Chaining For Fun & Profit

>By defeating several of the same type of foe in succession you can create a battle chain.

>When a battle chain is formed, the number of links in the chain is displayed on screen. The longer the chain, the greater the chance that loot will drop.

>Battle chains of a certain level will not only increase the chance of loot dropping, but also the chance of multiple item drops.

Do you guys actually bother playing a videogame before you complain about it? Anything that can't be won by battle chains isn't needed.

There are a few outlier cases with very rare items that have a retarded requirement but you don't need to get those items… You can beat the game and do a lot of the optional content without them, and beat it easily at that.

Hell you can get far in the story without having seriously upgraded your gear at all, and only occasionally picking up new items. So arguing about the drop rate of a select few items you don't need is a moot point.

Any rare drops won through battle chaining are easy game given you can increase the speed of the game to x4 and plow through areas and monsters at a stupid rate. This also makes grinding a lot easier than any of the other FF games.

The battle chain isn't necessary. Why not just increase the drop rate, and in the case of something like wolf's throat's blood you will still be killing hundreds to get a few. Ball's in you're court mister marketer.

Having large areas and mobs that roam the map isn't MMO features you schlong swallowing goblin.

Its a mechanic that has existed in RPG's for years before and having tight claustrophobic areas to fight enemies isn't a characteristic of RPG's.

5, 7 and 8 don't really have an overarching story, it's more along the lines of "stuff happens, you react". Very episodic chain of events instead of having a clear cut goal from the start. I only played 9 once when it came out and forgot most of the story except monkeys from space and evil fat queen, so no comment on that one. 10 also has a story, like 4-5-6.

Well like I said, it's more along the lines of having an overarching plot, a clear reason to get things moving and keep them moving. 4 has the kingdom gathering crystals and Golbez fucking shit up. 5 has the crystals breaking and the power of the elements fading. 6 has the empire taking over the world and quite literally poised to attack. On the other hand, 7 is just "save the planet" with no clear reason behind it; hell the clashes with Shinra are instigated by Avalanche. Once you leave Midgar, the story more or less becomes about following Sephiroth from town to town. In 8 you're a soldier going on missions and sorceresses are bad and stuff. And 10 has a clear goal of stopping Sin by going on a pilgrimage.

They just have the story unravel as you go along instead of starting it off at a 10 with you in the heat of things; it shows what they were like before and with FFIX and FFVIII having the main characters profession being the thing that leads them into the story.

Define plays like an MMO please.

There was a bit of pretty good side content here and there but it wasnt xenoblade chronicles tier where you were pretty much the slave of every other person in the game and without that EXP from sidequests, you would be too weak to do the main missions and be forced to grind.

In FFXII can't you just play through the main storyline like any other jrpg? Or am I getting your definition wrong?

>>14170562

Its pretty good for a finished product, at least it didnt get raped and mutilated like FFXV.
