I was browsing PS Store last night, and noticed a few FFs for 8 pound (bare in mind other games are 4 pound).

My question is: Are they worth 8 quid? Should i wait for HD remakes? And if i was to get one, which would you recommend?

I think it goes 4 - 9 in the series

I think they'd be worth the 8 quid, especially VI.

I doubt there'd be any HD remakes unless Square felt like it.

Yes I have FFIX and FF VIII on my PS3 and they were worth it. Even though I already beat them a long time ago.

VII and VIII would be the only ones worth it in my opinion. All the others have other versions that are far superior. FFIV should be played in the DS Remake. Tactics should be played on the PSP (if you don't have PSP, play Tactics before any of the others on PSN). I never liked VI, but I'm SURE it'll get a DS or Vita upgrade soon.

Like I mentioned on PSN Rob, I'd choose either VI or VII, I couldn't get into VIII properly, didn't get far at all but from what I did play the battle system was pretty broken. Out of those 2 I'd probably choose VI, being my favourite of the older FF games, but while VII wasn't my favourite it's definitely a game that any Final Fantasy fan should play

Is Tactics on the store? I'll have to have a look for that I play Tactics A2 on the DS, but I didn't get into the original so that might be a good download

The original PSX version is in the PSN store. It's vastly superior to A2, lol.

Sweet deal, I'll have to buy that once I've got a bit of money, though knowing the amount of games coming out, that won't be any time soon

Naa I'm pretty sure Tactics is a stand alone game, doesn't belong with any of the other games, while I think it's set in the same place as Final Fantasy XII is, it doesn't have anything to do with the game

Yeah, its thousands of years apart, but in the same universe I guess. The summons are the same.

Cloud wanders into the tactics world in search of Aerith or Sephiroth, but is just there for fun.

I had a look but Tactics isn't in the store, just a PSP only one with a sub-title

VII VIII and IX are the only ones you should get

IV, V, and VI all have much, much better versions than the PSX ones, especially V. Just pick up FFV and FFVI Advance (If loss of quality in VI's music bugs you enough, there's a patch on Romhacking.net that reverts all the music to the SNES music and makes the Opera scene a official voiced version), and then for FFIV either get Collection for the PSP or FFIVDS for the DS.


The original FFT is on there, but if you have a PSP or iPhone/iPod Touch don't even bother with that, the new translation is much better and there's more content.
