Rate the Game: Week 114

Fuck my ass, another late start on this mofo. What is wrong with me? Anyways, welcome to all who dare tread these waters with me. It's Rate the Game time! Last week, the harrowing adventures of one Guybrush Threepwood were put under the microscope as we looked back at his game, The Secret of Monkey Island. Let's not waste any more time in divulging the secret of how well it did among us on TPWW. We go to the leaderboard....



Well, solid 3s all across the board can only mean one possible overall average. A 3.0 overall rating puts the Secret of Monkey Island in OK-ish territory but nowhere near the elites. Can any of the remaining games break through that upper barrier? We can begin to answer that question with only way. Bowl, let's do this thing!

via GIPHY



The pickings are getting slimmer by the week. Our 114th game to rate takes us back to the Super Nintendo's days of epic RPGs. It's Square's Final Fantasy 3! Or if you're a Japanese purist, Final Fantasy 6! Who can really make sense out of all that? That's not our job. Our job is to rate this sucker and share our thoughts on it, if any. Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG have already received stellar praise from us but how does this title fare in comparison? Does it deserve to outperform Final Fantasy 7? It's all up to you now. Until next week!




No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes...



...again.

I did stir it but I can only make the .GIF so long. At this point, though, with so few games left, stirring seems a bit unnecessary.

Also, I guess I lied a few weeks ago when I talked about the remainder of the games. I actually haven't played this one. I was never a Final Fantasy guy.

Played the F out of it

One of the best, if not the best, Final Fantasy games. The music, the characters, the moments/story... this one had it all. Loved this game.

Easy 5 from me.

i love the job system of 5 but objectively this has to be the best of the sprite era and its got to rival everything after too. i know most are ff7 stans but to me 6 is light years better. its not even partially close.

I think people are blown away with technical aspects of Final Fantasy 7, which are impressive, all things being fair. Plus, there are moments like the death of Aerith. Is there anything like that in this game?

kefka destorying the world. celes' suicide attempt. several deaths are possible depending on your choices. shadows most notably imo.


ff7s legacy is its the first ff to get mainstream appeal. psx marketed the shit out of the game and many were introduced through it. i think most who had been along for the ride prefer 6 over 7 though.

Shadow does die in the original Japanese version. Only on the port did they add the option to go back for him cause they didn't want a character to die....

Nope. Just going by what I've heard, but maybe it has been an old wives tale all these years. If I remember I'll google around about it later....

That sounds like a title that would have grabbed my attention as a kid so that's going to have to be a no on my part.

By the by, if either you or Fignuts have a rating for this week's game it'd help if you mentioned it so I can count it for when I do the match.

Uematsu was at the top of his game here, the score he composed is completely unrivaled, just absolutely nothing like it ever. The other big one is the final boss theme Dancing Mad, a 16-minute, three movement piece, just completely insane sounding, which composing on the Super Nintendo hardware is equated to basically painting the Sistine Chapel with crayons.

It's good in theory but the execution was way off, the progression was way too slow and enemies were too overpowered, much easier to just bash your teammates over the head for long periods of time

ff7s legacy is its the first ff to get mainstream appeal. psx marketed the shit out of the game and many were introduced through it. i think most who had been along for the ride prefer 6 over 7 though.
6 easily had the better story and characters. 7 was just far more marketable for a number of reasons.

All I know of the series is because of this dude who was in the same separation company as me in the US Army and we could actually buy whatever we wanted at the PX on our smart cards as long as we still had $ on them. He got a PS and FF VIII and I watched for a few minutes as he played it in the rec room one night on watch duty.

I bought a Playboy (this was Oct. ’99, so magazines were still a thing) and the Fan Mail TLC album and CD player. Good times. Just had to dispose of the magazine before the sergeants saw it and chewed me out over it. Had plenty of time to read it on watch duty though HAHA.

no doubt it was far from refined but i can see the idea on the 8 bit system and value it for its ambition. its the 2nd worst ff imo. and very easily. im not saying it was good at all.
