For my money though, FF 7 is always going to be king. Cloud kicked major ass with that spikey hair and monster sword of his and the materia was such an ideal way to use magic.
You know when you max out on lightside points though there is this really super cool glow about you on the character screen(the one that you have to go to when you level up).
I never did wind up getting FFx-2. I have so many games to finish before I can even think of getting ahold of that. It seems like every time I play a FF game it consumes me for roughly 40+ hours of gaming at minimum.
FF 7 was the bomb. Easily my favorite one. Aeris getting croaked was shocking! Sephiroth was a badass! I even got a gold chocobo! Not an easy thing to get!
Some people hated FF8. I wasn't one of them. I loved the gameplay and parts of the story were killer! I never ended up playing much of IX. That was right when the PSX was on its last legs and I just never really gave it much of a chance.
As far as Knights of the Old Republic, the dark side powers are just too much fun. Force choke is hilarious! I've pretty much made enemies in every world so far. The story ending on the dark side is much better too IMO.
I'm not sure if you were old enough to remember but Ultima VII was probably my favorite RPG. I loved being able to kill literally everyone in the game. And the world was huuuuge for its day. Upgrading was always awesome as well...
Its too bad that the current standard of some of the games these days seems to limit the actual hours of gametime. I easily beat Max Payne 2 in 7 hours. Call of Duty was way too short as well. They need to make games longer again...
