But will it be as good as the Bob Hoskins Mario movie from 1993?

I think custom titles have always been bestowed upon us from above.

Just like I said, posts of both superior excellence and finest vintage.

Hi, Lakitu! Welcome. Enjoy your stay here at the Fungi Forums, where "what we lack in activity we make up for in quality."

I was gunning for 10,000 posts but it's looking increasingly less feasible.

I think we have a better chance of counting to a million... for real.

You and I are mortal, but TMK can never die.

These are some great reads (and videos). Thanks, Deezer!

"Up to Super Mario Bros. 3, we drew all of the levels on graph paper, and then starting with Super Mario World, it was a combination of graph paper plus some editing tools on the PC that we had,” says Miyamoto. “The process of creating a Super Mario Bros. level is, you design the course, and then you make a change, and then you have to test out that change to see how that change affects the overall playability of the course.”

I used to do that as a kid! I would draw my own levels out on pieces of graph paper, and I always wished that I could play them. How cool it is that today's generation actually can play their levels!

No one's talked about FF1 yet so I will talk about FF1 now. What I like about it are all things games don't do anymore, and I don't mean that in a retro-****y way. There's something about a game that's full of conscious decisions that... get the job done, but are not the first thing you'd expect. It plays out like a schizophrenic game of dungeons & dragons run by a DM who didn't do nearly enough worldbuilding before the game started and whose notes keep getting eaten by his dog....

That was all I needed. I know where to start. See the image attached for more information.

Square Enix's RPG catalogue outside of Final Fantasy contains some absolutely amazing, imaginative, and just plain cool games, far moreso than the Final Fantasy series itself could ever provide. Outside of the context of this thread, I'd recommend titles like Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, several Dragon Quest games, EVO: The Search for Eden, Chrono Trigger, Parasite Eve, The 3rd Birthday, NieR, and The Last Remnant without a second thought.

I just recently finished Chrono Trigger (the Android Port), and I think it has bumped KOTOR from my top slot as my favorite RPG of all time. I never had the SNES as a kid (and I still don't have one *sigh*), but I had read only good things about Chrono Trigger, and so I figured I needed to play it; I'm pretty sure that's where this itch to play FF came from.

The help so far has been beyond expectation! The Chef & Warp -- you both have given me a solid starting point to begin some research of my own and decide where to start.

Hi Friends!

Recently I've been getting into some casual gaming again. I've always wanted to start playing games in the Final Fantasy series, but I am at a bit of a loss. Where to start? Which game is actually the first? Is every game standalone (like the Zelda series, more or less) or need I to have played FF I, for instance, in order to understand FF Tactics,?

And so, TMKers, what is the best way to get into the Final Fantasy series without being completely lost?
