    I want a new game because I'm sick of MW2 and lost interest in WoW for the third time. I miss FF games, think I'm gonna set up my old PS2 and start playing 9 or 10, but I want a newer game too that I can play on the PC. Any suggestions?

    Have you played it? I just checked it out and it looks good, but people say it gets too repetitive.

    I liked it, it's repetitive in the same way FF games are. I can't really think of anything else in a jrpg style like ff games that's on the PC.

    Final Fantasy 7 and 8 were both released for PC... I'd say they are the most FF-like of all PC games.

    but worth it.

    I honestly don't know of any off the top of my head... I mean I remember one that was released back in 1997-98 that was 3d, turn based rpg, and as you traveled you met new characters. But I feel that is a bit too old to run on our current machines let alone something you would want to play.

    I mean is it the story you are looking for? the Turn-based action? What about the FF series are you looking for in a PC title?

    Did XII ever come out on PC? It's probably the least prototypical of the FF series, but still fun.

    Atlantica Online is the newest one i can think of. i played it for a little while, pretty cool game and very cool random battle system mmorpg as well.

    other players with their teams can join in on your battles to help out, and as far as I've seen it's maxed out at 27 player characters on screen at once vs same amount of monsters and a boss in the middle.

    7 and 8 are the only ones to come with a PC port. 9, 10, 10-2, and 12 did not port to PC.

    yeah probably last remnant is it as far as I can tell

    I'm assuming you either don't want to play the newer WRPGs or you've already played them? :dunno:
