RE: What makes a Great Game Trailer?
I like trailers that are more than the game, while keeping a faithful representation of the game.
In this one they use an in-game track, with in-game text, in order to tell a story and give you a large tease at a lot of the game, without revealing too much. Not only that, but it's using a lot of art assets completely separate of the game (but very much based on the game) in conjuction with the assets of the game itself in the manner that you would expect to see them in the game.
It makes it all entertaining to watch even if you've already completed the game, in fact it may be even more entertaining to watch due to the appreciation of plot elements and characters.
I still might rank that P5 trailer above it though, where they're skating on the highway. Perfection.
RE: The Final Fantasy Debate
For me, FF7 is my favorite game of all time, and naturally my favorite of the series. Comparatively, I dislike FF6 the most, and FF12 is right there next to it.
I've gotten to the end of FF5 and lost my save file. Someday I will beat it, but it's hard getting back into it.
I've beaten all the rest of the mainline entries (non-MMO), though not every one of them from their original versions. I could never stomach FF3, but FF3DS was another matter entirely, and probably has one of the best launch intros of all time, which is unfortunately watered down on any single screen device. FF4DS also gets more criticism than I think it deserves. FF4 balances out to my 2nd favorite, but I absolutely feel that 4DS is an all around upgrade in every way. The 3D sprites are faithful to the concept art more-so than the classic sprites, which I suppose some people take issue with. I don't know if I could handle faithful representations of the FF5 concept art, for example, I know the Steam/iOS port of FF5 is hideous.
I actually enjoy the FF13 series. I understand some of the basic criticisms behind them, but I don't understand the widespread hate. Also Hope was the best character in the first game, and Vanille was by far the worst.
If I were to rank them, discounting X-2 and XIII-2/Lightning Returns:
FF7 > FF4 > FF10 > FF9 = FF8 > FF13 > FF5 > FF1 > FF3 > FF2 > FF12 > FF6
My dislike for 6 isn't due to the anti-popularity vote, it's just how I feel. I anticipate a remake of 6, because I think I will enjoy it more when it is in 3D. On the other hand I don't think my dislike for 12 can be fixed without extreme revisions to the story, so maybe it deserves to be in the bottom spot instead.
FF8 has issues and FF9 doesn't, really, but I appreciate 8's world a whole lot more, so they're kinda even. FF10 took out airship flight (airship map select doesn't count), but in every other circumstance I absolutely love the game. FF4 is just timeless. You could re-release that game 10 more times and I'd buy it every time, as long as you don't go that HD sprite route like on the PSP, I'll never understand why that's more valued than 3D models.
I also play FF14, but it's felt really slow and dull these days, so I haven't played it as much. I keep trying to find excuses to get back into it though. I still haven't beaten Heavensward and a new expansion was just teased by Yoshida, so I'll need to rev up my gears sometime soon.
