I suddenly got the urge to play around with my psx again and decided to try to finish either of these games. I haven't completed either of them. I probably only have time to play one of them (and I may not even finish). Which would you play, and why?

Feel free to share opinions, recs and feels.

I've never played Legend of Legaia, but I always though FF IX was pretty dull. The aesthetics are really great, but the game has really bad pacing issues and the story is largely forgettable. Card game sucks compared to triple triad.

Put it this way, I've played it through 3 times since it came out and I couldn't tell you the major plot points or what motivates any character other than Vivi and maybe Steiner. It also has one of the dumbest final boss fights in FF history.

srs I've tried to play FFIX a few times and the locations and everything seemed cool but I just couldn't get jiggy with the story.

FF IX is one of my favorite Final Fantasy's.

I played Legend of Legaia for a little bit, and it just didn't click with me.

I rented Legend of Legaia when it came out, didn't care for it.

I owned FF9 and beat it.

aww man.. this thread has me thinking about Breath Of Fire III now...

Didn't get very far in Legend of Legaia but from what I recall the battle system was pretty interesting, it reminded me of just using Sabin from FFIII
FFIX on the other hand is old-skool-esque RPG done correctly

Legaia is a great game IMO. But FF9 is my favorite FF of all time so would probably have to say that.

Good replies it looks like more are leaning towards FF9. I'll def give it a shot. Just put about 2 hrs in Legaia so far not bad...combat is fun but a bit unpredictable since I don't understand the defensive mechanisms yet.




Grandia.

Thank me later

Oh I forgot about Grandia. Now the question regarding that is...should I play Grandia 1 or 2?

Well Grandia is PS ;)

Grandia 2 is DC or PS2. Considering you're asking for PS RPGs I'd say Grandia 1 hehe

Because Xenogears is the pinnacle of RPG storytelling.


Just imagine if they crammed the entire Mass effect series into 1 game. That is the level of epicness of Xenogears.

Xenogears basically takes 70 hours to beat, even with disc 2 having so much content cut out.

Legend of Legaia lol. So many memories. Still remember facing Songi like it was yesterday.

Since other people are complicating your decision I'll do the same... Star Ocean 2. Fun battle system, choose between 2 main characters for a bit different play throughs, good story, crazy item crafting, and from what I remember 80 hours of gameplay for a single play through.

Legend of Legaia. Hands down.

Defensive mechs for LoL = Boss big attack? Spirit = block/guard

Always Final Fantasy brah, always.

FFIX is the one where you kidnap that princess at the start right?

TY, I figured as much but I've only fought one boss so far and was trying to learn the order he would attack in. Still won. Only time I've been knocked out is when I tried fighting the bees in my hometown. I remember messing with them in the demo disk way back in 99, but I don't think they were this strong.

Yessir you are right. And the dude with the tail is your main character.

go get the legend of dragoon!

if not FFIX, this ^^. took 9 posts for someone to say legend of dragoon, really? game is epic (srs), battle system is very unique. Had the game on my PS, never finished. Then later played it on my PSP few years back, got to disc 4 and still didn't get to finish (psp started messing up)! Now that I'm thinking back, i definitely want, and possibly need, to finish it. Trying to get a iPad in the near future so def gonna try and finish it on there.
