ive never playd the game, but i love ffx. how do they compare?
Go buy it from the PSN.... NOW!!!
You cannot start a thread based on JRPGs and not have played FFVII.
That would be like starting a thread about your favorite Star Wars movie without never watching TESB.
FFVII is the benchmark that every modern FF will be review against, if not openly, the reviewer is unquestionably basing their judgment off the game based on the standard VII laid forth.
It made JRPG's a selling force outside of Japan and ushered in the era of western RPG's.
Also check out Xenogears. Quite possibly the best RPG on the PSX, even better the FFVII IMO.
