And The Final Fantasy Game I Will Play Through Again Is...

Letting the GI community choose which Final Fantasy game I replay has been a pretty cool experiment. I wanted to replay through an RPG alongside all you wonderful readers, but I didn't anticipate so many of you would go to the dark side and let Joe Juba influence you.You can't let that man think he has that much power. Moving on, I noticed some interesting things with the votes, so I'll reveal the top three spots.

3rd Place: Final Fantasy VI 

I was hoping this one would have more fanfare, but I realize not as many people may have played it. Plus, I know Tim played it for the first time recently, so I figured maybe you guys wanted to talk about a different game. The version up for the poll was also the PlayStation release, which I know isn't the best edition of the game, so I think some of you wanted to save me the load time woes. 

2nd Place: Final Fantasy IX

I'll be honest here: had a person named JOE JUBA not campaigned so hard, I firmly believe this would have been the winner. If you were hoping for this to win, you can send all your hate mail to This is all his fault.

And finally....

1st Place: Final Fantasy VIII

I'll admit I never got into Final Fantasy VIII as much as other entries. I didn't like Squall at all. But readers this is what you want, so I will play through it once again and see if my opinion changes at all. Don't say I never did anything for you guys. ;) And honestly, I'm shocked Final Fantasy VII didn't crack the top three. I thought for sure that'd be what you guys would pick.

Look for a blog soon for my initial reactions to stepping back into Final Fantasy VIII again.
