In my opinion, the best game ever. Final Fantasy IX is very different thematically to FFVII and FFVIII since it returns to its roots. Instead of a modern world with mobiles and emails, the setting is pretty simple (although there are airships). It truly feels like a fantasy game and one that is done extremely well.

The characters are all unique and are brought to life by a beautifully written script. Nobuo Uematsu returned for his last solo FF sound track and it was amazing. From the beginning piece 'The Place I'll Return to Someday' to the emotionally powerful 'You're not alone', the music never fails to pull at those heart strings.

The gameplay is solid and enjoyable despite lacking any uniqueness. Which brings me onto another point about FFIX in that it was intended to be a throw back to the earlier Final Fantasys. In that respect the plot, characters and setting were not ground breaking. But all these aspects were done so damn well that Sakaguchi, the series founder called it the best Final Fantasy yet. Uematsu said the same.

In conclusion, FFIX is a magnificent game although it failed to make the impact that many FF fans (such as me) feel it deserved. So, for those of you who haven't played it, go play it now! It is more than just a game, the experience and memories may well last you a lifetime.
I just spent 80 hours playing Final Fantasy IX and it rocks, kupo!

Something that is better than most people think it is.
Final Fantasy IX is so underrated man!

The Tamil Tigers aka the LTTE are a group of Tamils fighting for Tamil Eelam. They were set up to fight against the discriminatory Sinhalese government's attempts to treat Tamils living in Sri Lanka as second class citizens.

However, in their attempts to do this they ended up stooping down to immoral acts - although they did not commit as many attrocities against civilians as the Sinhalese government did.

Whilst they are a terrorist organisation, mostly interested in their own agenda, they are less responsible for the conflict in Sri Lanka than the government. Now that they have been pretty much defeated, the Sinhalese government will have a free reign and if something is not done there is a danger that there will be a genocide. Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka must be helped!
The Tamil Tigers may be bad but they haven't murdered as many innocent people as the Sinhalese government.

Uttered when someone says something that is obviously true.

The phrase was originally invented by me before rising into popularity.
Random dude 811: Final Fantasy IX is the best game ever.
Me: Thats a given.

Random Dude 499: Sri Lanka is amazing at cricket!
Me: Thats a given.

(^Well, according to me at least ^o^)

Random dude 911: George Bush sucks!
Me: Thats a given.

(according to everyone)

Something that will take forever to come out.
"How long is she gonna stay in there!? Man, the Final Fantasy 7 remake will come out before she does!"

WARNING: Do not say this in front of your gf unless if said gf has a crush on Cloud, Zack, Sephiroth or all three of them.* If thats the case you may want to break up with them anyway.

*or Quina.

Main character of Final Fantasy IX. He is a genome with a tail. He's also a thief with a decent sense of humour.
