Final Fantasy just has an awesome art style period. Just look at the box art and character avatars in the series.

You mean Final Fantasy V.
VI ****** up with world map. The 3d technique might have been nice at release. but it went old fast.
Also IX had awesome art style.

While there is no way to really deem what game is "best" in a series due to personal subjective opinions involved...those are in no way the best of the Final Fantasy games. Just the most popular.

What are you going on about? There are 3 Final Fantasy games on the PS2.

If you couldn't tell that one of the most highly acclaimed PS2 RPGs and one of Square's best-selling titles was "popular" I don't know what to tell you.

also the key word was "was", as in for a time the only final fantasy avaible to playstation 2 and only playstation 2 was FFX

A quick gaze on Metacritic, forums or conversing with anyone that knows about Final Fantasy in the slightest could have told you that.

While being a Final Fantasy game has certainly influenced the initial popularity of the game, it certainly has gained it's fair share of die-hard fans.

The gif's color depth is 8-bit, but everyone forgets that the NES's CPU was 8-bit, not the graphics. The graphics had a color palette with 54 colors, rather than 256 like an 8-bit image. Moreover, the NES has a total of 2kb of VRAM, whereas the image is over 100kb.

So technically it's 8-bit, even though it isn't terribly reminiscent of early image processing.

Its rather fun, it has that good old Nostalgia vibe to it without shoving it in your face too much. I can't remember who / where said it but they said it was like an inbreed of many old games.

It has Elements from Megaman and mario. But its mostly a platformer if anything.

Is it worth 15$? It sure is, Go buy it

metal slug sucks. you can't explore anything. Its just along walk along the screen to the right. If I wanted that, I would have played Super Mario Bros, which is also waaay better than this ****** metal slug.

Metal slug = hallway simulator of the ****** age of old when only ****** games where made.

Nice! Gotta love the classics (though considering I remember that coming out.... I feel old T.T)

And ya. They took a lot of the Touhou characters and made a Castlevania-esque game from it. It was actually pretty good and along the lines of difficulty of older Vania gaames.
