You're just a party pooper.

I don't think it was that bad, actually. I am glad he's sticking to the post-Nomura Final Fantasies, though. The Amano ones weren't as guilty of the things he railed against.

Wasn't FF 9 the last Nomura one? I think FF 9 is his favourite. It's also my favourite. It may not have the best story but it has a damn good one and some great characters. Freya Crescent being the best female character in the series. I also think it's the best paced in terms of how new abilities are acquired. It's Uematsu at his finest too. The best soundtrack of the series.

The FF series doesn't have particularly great stories. I would say the best are probably on par with a decent shounen anime. I do think FF 9 is the purest at what it wants to accomplish though. It was actually a homage to the entire series.

Har har, if you start comparing FF6 to Naruto I will find you.

I wouldn't. I meant shounen more along the standard of Rurouni Kenshin.

I should probably read that at some point.

It's an important anime/manga and one of FMA's big influences but I don't think it's as good as that. I don't like it as much as Uber Hikari but it is good. I watched the anime as far as episode 62 and then read the Jinchuu arc of the manga. The episodes in the anime are only filler after that. So yeah, you should read the manga. But you should watch the anime OVA of Trust and Betrayal instead of reading its counterpart in the manga. The anime adaption of that part is much better. It's actually seinen and one of the very best animes I've seen.

As much as I disagree with Jim at times, he does some very enjoyable videos

Yeah, he's actually kind of funny at times.

I like how he used Syndicate (2012) footage for Half Life 3.
