The Nightly Show Is Wrong About Final Fantasy

The Nightly Show Is Wrong About Final Fantasy

On the May 5 episode of the Nightly Show, there was a gag where a phoney set of terms and conditions for agreeing to watch the program were flashed on-screen. If you saw it live you'd have only seen it flash by, but pausing reveals a politically-charged throwdown.

For anyone who can't read the tiny print circled in the pic, it says:

All sales and rentals of products are final fantasy 3. Far and away the best of the Final Fantasy series.

Wow. Unless that was a typo that was meant to say "12", that's some bullshit right there, Nightly Show.

    Unless that was a typo that was meant to say "7", that's some bullshit right there, Luke Plunkett.

      Unless that was a typo that was meant to say "8", that's some bullshit right there, Luke Plunkett and Neo Kaiser.

        +1 for 8 because it's my favourite game of all time. But they were also kinda right about 3 (which we call 6) because it's basically perfect.

          another +1 for FFVIII because VII is overrated as fuuuuu-

            What did you think of FFX?

              Pros: Auron, Lulu, Auron, Kimahri, Auron, Rikku, Auron, Paine, Auron.

              Cons: Tidus, Yuna, Tidus, Wakka, Tidus, Jecht, and Tidus.

              Hm. I think the nays have it. Way too much Tidus. Bad game.

                AH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH..

                *Breath*

                AHHH HAH HAH HAH HAH.

                I kinda liked Wakka actually, maybe because the English voice was done by John DiMaggio, who did Bender in Futurama. Auron was definitely badass though.

                Story-wise, I really enjoyed that sense of peaceful acceptance that everyone seemed to have about this horrible cycle of death caused by Sin. It felt more interesting to me than FF8's story, though I did love FF8 as well.

                I... What.... you put Rikku in Pros? I don't know you anymore!

          I tried to remember which one was my favourite, but ever since junctioning those GFs I just get these strange flashbacks with awesome music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mOMQ_S3OCc

            FF8 music clearly the best there is. Nope, not biased at all.

        Unless that was a typo that was meant to say "4", that's some bullshit right there, Luke Plunkett, Neo Kaiser and Freeze.

          Are we talking the original US numbering? Because if so it was meant to say "3". Bullshit typos and shit.

      I'm going to have to put my foot down here because "4" is without question the best game in the series.

        4s are the best in all franchises, Final Fantasy and Call of Duty are proof of this. We shouldn't be waiting for Half-Life 3 but Half-Life 4!

      FF7 all the way, loved and still love that game. 8 was great, but 7 is still by far the best in my books
      12.... meh

      I think you mean "Any Final Fantasy game with Lightning in it, 'cos Lightning is best waifu".

      :-P

    Pretty sure when they said 3 they meant the American Version of 3 which is actually Final Fantasy 6. If you've played Final Fantasy 6, then you already know.

    It is known.

      tottaly agree. I prefer the classic SNES era jrpgs compared to the newer ones and ff6 was one of the best in the series (still not as good as chrono trigger but that's a different argument)

        It's not an argument. It's an opportunity to correct people who do not accept the truth of it.

    12?! Ooooooooh, I get it, you are like me and pretend that the DS spin off, Revenant Wings was the real 12.

    I disagree, it's a very good game, but I think donkey kong is the best game ever.

    ...and here I am thinking FF Tactics shat over all other FFs.

    I am assuming he meant FF3 in the U.S. and if that is the case he has a valid argument.

    12 is correct. 8 is just as good.

    7 is overrated as hell.

    Sorry guys, not liking FF7 as much as the others, or not at all != overrated.

    I'm joining the bandwagon and saying FF8, it was the first FF i finished and for me (personally) 7 comes a very close second. C'mon, the main character has a sword that SHOOTS BULLETS!!!!
