Mostly my X-2 idea is just the burning need I have to resurrect Jecht and Auron when Tidus comes back at the end, which means "idea" is a kind way of putting it. I feel this is a cliche that needs to exist in this fandom and since I haven't seen anyone else do it, I'm prepared to start it on my own. XD

Nice to meet you and awesome-sauce post. Being reminded of FFX and X-2 made me remember all the plot-bunnies I've had when I was....16. WOW. If I think about it, that was a while ago.

May I friend?

First FF game: FFVIII. My sister and I bought a used PS from a guy who needed quick cash, and my dad ran out and bought Ash the first game she saw. She thought Rinoa was pretty. I didn't get interested until I saw her summon Shiva.
Favorite FF game: FFX, hands down
Favorite FF minigame: Triple Triad. Only one I don't suck at!
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? I write primarily in the FF8 fandom, though I've written a few Jecht-centric one shots for FFX.
Other fandoms, current and/or past? I'm all over the place; SG1/SGA, Yugioh, Merlin, Psych, HP, Trek...
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next why? Depends on which idea I go with for this bb; either FF8 or FFX-2.
Wildcard! Excuse any weirdness, this was all typed on my Droid. XD

First FF game: Final Fantasy VII
Favorite FF game: Final Fantasy VII
Favorite FF minigame: I actually hate minigames, :/
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? I don't think I would consider myself "active" in any fandoms, except for the larger whole of metafandom. I've written a few tiny fics, but this is my first one longer than 3,000 words, I think (and I went for 100k, ;_;). Instead, I'll list favorite FFs: VII, Tactics, XII, IX
Other fandoms, current and/or past? Another note about not considering self "active" in fandom, but I like ATLA, piles of book series, piles of anime/manga series, even though i don't write for them/do icons/etc.
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? XII (haven't finished it yet but I <3 this game), Tactics War of the Lions (CUT SCENES), Revenant Wings, IV, maybe V or VI, Crisis Core

First FF game: I rented and played the first FF when it first came out. In fact, I think I played a bit of it at Powerfest before it came out!
Favorite FF game: I like every one that I've played, but FFVI will always have a special place in my heart.
Favorite FF minigame: Tough call, but I'd have to say Chocobo Hot & Cold from IX, because the treasure hunting was so much fun.
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? I've written fic for FFIV, FFV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFX and a little FFXIII. Most of the rest of the games I haven't played yet.
Other fandoms, current and/or past? ...how long do you want this list to be? Because it could be very very long! But I'll try to stick to the high points: Brigandine, Star Ocean 2, Valkyrie Profile series, Skies of Arcadia, Dragon Quest VIII, and Mass Effect. (I would probably be a lot more involved in the Dragon Age fandom if I could find the time to finish the games.)
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? When I have time, I really want to play FFXII, because I've played a tiny bit and it looks great. And if I can find it, I want to play War of the Lions - I've played the PSX version, but I want to see the new translation so much. And I like fighting games (although I'm horrible at them) so I'd like to try the Dissidia games at some point or another.... I need a PSP. ^^;
Wildcard! My journal activity is... sporadic. XD But I always read posts! I just sometimes have trouble replying to them.
And since I can't really post pictures, watch this awesome YouTube video that I found instead. Go, puppy! Beat robot!

First FF game: The one that was just straight-up Final Fantasy at the time. :) I think I've played every port and remake (including the WSC), and I still have a deep and abiding love for the original release, weird bugs and all.
Favorite FF game: Probably VI, but I recently finished XII and loved it SO MUCH that there is now competition.
Favorite FF minigame: For sheer hours of my life sunk into it, snowboarding in VII.
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? I've written for I, IV, VI, and VII, and I'm currently trying to finish up a fic for I. I can hear XII calling sweetly to me, too.
Other fandoms, current and/or past? Many! I've been all over the early Dragon Quest series, at least semi-recently wrote fic for Ace Attorney and Legend of Zelda, and am always hip-deep in Chrono Trigger. I don't usually feel the urge to fic for non-video-game fandoms (I finally wrote an Utena fic a while back, have lengthy unfinished Yu-Gi-Oh fic sitting around on my hard drive, and will someday likely begin writing Doctor Who and never stop), but I've read or otherwise been involved in rather a lot.
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? I am currently playing X for the first time ever (shhh, my To Play pile is terrifyingly high), and next I think I'd like to replay VIII, which I suspect I'll have more fun with now than I did when I first played it.
Wildcard!
Kitten and robot high-five.

What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? currently replaying VIII for the 8th time. I'm also working through X-2 and IV for the first time for both. I am the world's slowest gamer so who knows when I will finish them? (if ever!)

I want to replay FFX-2 but the effort I put in the first time was so much, I am so discouraged. XD XD

I never replay FF8 from beginning to end anymore because I have two memory cards full of saves. I have a save for just about everywhere. LOL

hahaha! See, I am dumb and only save in one save slot. Then inevitably I lose the memory card or forget what I was doing or decide it's been so long that I might as well play it from the beginning. Although I just downloaded VIII from the PSN the other day so now I have it as long as my PS3 is alive.

From: [personal profile] regann
For a long time, FF8 was the only game me and my sister had (this is back in the before times, of course) so we played it a ton and we both had memory cards and we FILLED IT UP WITH SAVES. I still have both of these memory cards since I'm the only one with a PS2. Profit for me. :D

I actually don't mind replaying the game, but I am a level grinder so it means a lot of tedium. I was busting ass on a FFX replay when my game glitched and told me I didn't get the flower scepter when I CLEARLY DID. I was completely heartbroken!

Favorite FF game: Final Fantasy VI.
Favorite FF minigame: Chocobo Hot and Cold~
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? It's easier to say which I haven't been active in: X-2, TA/TA2, 1-3, 5. I am *most* active in 4, 6, and 12/Tactics presently.

What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? I'm currently replaying FF6 and FF10, so friends can see the plot. After that I think it'll be 13 and 9, probably followed by 8. All replays.
Wildcard! Oddly, my cats are named after Zelda characters (Zelda and Ganon), not FF ones.

Legend of Dragoon! That's like the second time in a month or so that I've seen mention of that game. :)

And I really forgot how much fun the FF9 chocobo stuff is until this meme, but the battle system in FF9 is not my favorite, so I've never replayed it.

My cats are named after Arthurian myths (Merlin & Morgana) and not FF ones, which is odd for me, too. My computers are the other hand are Jecht (old desktop), Tidus (old laptop) and Yuna (pink laptop). XD

Is it alright if I friend you? :)

First FF game: Final Fantasy VIII

Favorite FF game: If I have to say, hands down, FFIX. FFVII does give me great characters and a world to be inspired over, but FFIX story was pretty solid. I also love FFX, FFVIII, and I was surprised in how much I enjoyed FFV. VI also deserves special mention. Final Fantasy Tactics is great for having a portable game.

Favorite FF minigame: Chocobo Hot and Cold in FFIX. Triple Triad has great illustrations for the cards. The Chocobo mini-games in FFIV were fun, too.

Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, dabble a bit in XII.

Other fandoms, current and/or past? Persona 3 and 4, Digital Devil Saga, X-men: Evolution, Neopets, Musicals (I actually wrote a script for a prequel to "Kiss Me, Kate"). Justice League.

What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? Final Fantasy Tactics, since I've playing that on and off. The opponents were really hard. Also Final Fantasy XII, even though I feel the maps are too large to really enjoy some things. And for the sake of the sequel, Final Fantasy XIII.

Wildcard!

I high-fived Lang-Lang.

Favorite FF game: FFVI, hands down. Though I still love most of the other games to an embarrassing degree, too.
Favorite FF minigame: Chocobo Hot and Cold in FFIX.
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in?I'm currently actively writing FFVI, and I used to write in FFVII and FFIX. I will read fics in any FF fandom, though, as long as the summary interests me.
Other fandoms, current and/or past? Chrono Trigger has been one of my fandoms for over ten years now. Other than that, I write a good deal of Stargate Atlantis, a bit of DCU, and occasional others, including Transformers (G1, TFA, TFPrime, movie-verse), Versus (cue crickets chirping...), Slayers, World of Warcraft and more.
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? FFIX. It'll forever be the game I find the most fun just to play.

What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? I'm kind of on a replay of Final Fantasy VIII, but I may drop it for FFXII or FFXIII. As for why, well, why not? Also I am indecisive as all get-out as you may have noticed.

First FF game: Not sure! I think it would probably have been IV.
Favourite FF game: Uh, V, mostly! Partly because it pings me in the game mechanics (mastering lots of jobs, hell yeah) and partly because the humour and tone appeals to me. Puns, hell yeah! :D X is also kind of good for me in the game mechanics part, turning everyone into different things~ story's pretty strong. There's a couple of things that bug me about it, so I wouldn't say it's my favourite.
Favourite FF minigame: …oh man minigames are kind of not my favourite thing ever. I guess the Chocobo Tales with the cards, the minigames in that are pretty nice. :|a I like the Ramuh maze one.
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in? Oh man, I don't know if I really count as active…? I'd say Dissidia and V, with a bit of X, VI and IV.
Other fandoms, current and/or past? Seiken Densetsu 3, Chrono Trigger, Kingdom Hearts, Okami, Homestuck, The World Ends With You, and a bunch of others I'm forgetting.
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why? Probably going to replay VI, and I'd like to play IX at some point.
