I've never played a single FF game (which is pretty poor for someone who claims to be an RPG-fanboy).

Well, not really. They're aren't really real RPGs as such. You can't edit your main character to suit him towards you, so it can't count.

I can't agree with your definition there. An RPG is a game where you take on a role of a character. It's not about editting characters to your own personality, it's about you taking on the personality of the character. I mean, actors don't change the personality of their part to make them more like themeslves, they do their best to put themselves into the mind of the part they're playing.

In Final Fantasy games you're not so much playing a role, but watching it.

any ideas if the Baphomet is in the movie and if it has that wonderfully warped "You will die you ingrate of the dead *yum yum*"?

If you mean the Icon of Sin at the end of Doom 2, he says (played backwards): "to win the game, you must defeat me, John Romero". The actual object you damage when firing rockets into the Icon of Sin is a picture of John Romero's head on a pole (you can see it with the idclip cheat).

I probably haven't seen / won't see any of the movies mentioned in this topic, as I rarely watch movies, series or TV in general. :p

FF was interesting. Nice CGI, but since I'm not a great FF fan, the movie didn't leave a big impression.

I dunno why everyone hated Spirits Within, I thought it was cool. Even if they did have Alec Baldwin as a VA...

And Serenity came out on Friday here, I can't wait to see it.  ;D
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

FF: AC got boring around the Bahamut fight. I think the Tifa fight was the best one =o

I'm going to see Doom, no matter what.

*really fucking drunk*

Stupid yank.. *viruta-beats the fuck outta your dog*


Final Fantasy : Advent Children was superb.. fucking amazing.. visually.. emotionally.. mentally just.. revolutionary for CGI workings and i mean come on, if you get bored by it then you obviously need to expand your horizon or ..

hmm..

i dunno..

play the game and.. erm, LIKE IT.

Even without playing the game, its still a superb piece, considering it started as a project, wank. =)


Amen.

By that definition every game is an RPG. There has to be something else to it as we don't just lump them all into that genre.

Well except Tetris, as your role (the brick formation) continually changes, you can't build up knowledge of the bricks, know about their back story or find out why they're out for vengance. It's really saddening, so many characters, not enough in-depth story line.

In Tetris your role is God.

An opinion that you're entitled to.

Saying its shit. Doesn't make it shit.

"i think its shit" i can accept that. "its shit" .. i cannot =)

I never said it was shit. I said it got boring (and since it is my post, you are expected to infer that my opinion is reflected in it unless otherwise stated) around the Bahamut fight.
