What's the big deal if he thinks FFX is a great RPG god knows how he doesn't like Grandia 1 and 2 but enjoys FFX but that's has choice no matter how weird it is.

Solace, this is your best post ever. I honestly did not think you could link Final Fantasy to a future Police State.

OKOKOK... Time to dispell this foolish misconception of Grandia 3 now that i've completed it. Grandia 3 is great!!!
The battle system is just awsome, the battles and the dungeons were beautyfull and challenging just in the right level. The Character expressions were greatly improved and the enjoyable music was still there. The story though, wasnt as epic has in previous Grandias. But the bar had already been set very high cause of the first two titles greatness. Without doubt, Grandia 3 is nevertheless one of the most enjoyable RPG's of this generation. It sure has the NEM seal of aproval!!

Don't worry, I still want to play FF12. I believe the FF3 sold faster and more copies because Handhelds are still one of the top systems.

Grandia 1 is legendary and 2 is great. I havent played 3 yet but I hear the story is no where near as good as the first two, Anyone whos played it care to say anything? Though I'd prefer if you've played the first two aswell.

Whats wrong with FFX? It was pretty good game imo, for once the battle system felt balanced, which reminds me when i first played it I chose "Expert Sphere System", long story short, i fucked up my skills and took me countless retrys to beat the bosses. It was fun though.

My last couple japanese rpgs were skies of arcadia and grandia 2. I doubt I've missed anything since those games. Japanese RPGs are gay and have used the same battle system for 20 years. America FTW! if blue dragon isn't good I will never play another japanese RPG again.

I'm not sure why people are surprised about the sales of FF3. One of the only good ff+People looking for **** to do on their DS+People have beaten mario 1000 times and theres nothing else to play= million seller.

We won't get the nice packaging like Japan did. Those boxes are huge. I already know the ending to 12, so I'm more excited about 3. duh! It's fans that have the big mouths.!

yes it is a bloody good excuse dip **** since due to playing / translating rubbish like ff10 i can now near as dame read japanese . .. which is great coz unlike i actually got a lot more out of the time spet playing it and unlike you i do not have to wait 12 -18 months for games to be ported to english or whatever you speak to play them. Thats if they ever get ported from japanese in the first place. in which case you will never play them

.. worth while learning to read japanese ......

yes i than think so .. since i am now paid to mark ISEB IT exams which have been written in japanese. And that a VERY nice little earner ..

DQ7 and DQ8 are crud.
Now i understand why you think FFX is one of the best RPGs ever when you say these are crud, It must be style over actual content that you look for in a goood RPG. .. lol ..

gradia 1 is awesome .. better than FF7 and almost as good as Xenogears. Grandia 2 was also great. Gradia three was nt great but a better game than FFX thats for sure

its no big deal .. but to say its one of the best rpgs ever made seems a little odd when there are 100s better ...lol .. and yes i agree it is a VERY weird choice .. almost as odd as some saying FF8 and 9 are some of the best rpgs ever made

Man are you stupid, whats the point in arguing with you when you don't even read/understand what I say?

I'd take that anyday over a series with endless (hella boring and basic) battles, no story or characterization and where the dialogue is aimed at 5 year olds.
