    Default The Legend of Zelda vs. Final Fantasy

    which series do you think is better and why? From a game play perspective Ill have to go with Zelda but the story in Final Fantasy games are far supeior. its pretty close for me but id have to say Zelda just because its alot funner to actually play.

    Seconded. You may as well ask if we like Mortal Kombat better than Gran Turismo.

    Frankly I favor Zelda because Final Fantasy rarely features characters with any kind of depth, or even memorability beyond hairdo or bust size. And because the Zelda games' gameplay aren't comprised of number-juggling.

    They're not even the same genre. This poll is flawed.

    their Both series based on saving the world and making your character stronger, both are loved by millions, both have almost all their games stared by a bonde. their close enough to make a poll .

    i voted zelda because i don't like any FF after 6...but then again, i never played a zelda after the first one on N64, so i don't really know what i am talking about there, either.

    Not sure what you were trying to say there. The whole "making your character stronger and trying to save the world" thing can be said of countless games, they're still not at all similar.

    I agree that it's not a perfectly fair comparison on the basis of such radically different styles of gameplay. Nevertheless I cast a vote for Zelda. I'll give five reasons (in no particular order) but try to be succinct about it:

    1. Zelda requires physical reflexes as well as deduction to succeed. FF is all about deduction.
    2. Link, as a character, is tabula rasa He's easier to appreciate since the player is basically projecting his/her own personality onto his mission.
    3. I've always enjoyed the nutty, borderline psychotic sense of humor in the random characters Link meets on his quest. Everything in the FF games I've played seems so darned serious.
    4. Zelda games maintain a high level of innocence in their presentation. It hasn't been hypersexualized like the last few FF games I've seen. I'm not knocking this, necessarily, but I've got little kids in the house and I'd rather play something I don't feel self-conscious about with them peeking over my shoulder.
    5. I'm playing Phantom Hourglass right now, so maybe I'm a little biased at the moment.

    Apples and oranges.

    Oh wait, someone already posted that.

    Well, in any case, both series have their fans. I happen to like both, thank you.

    I picked Zelda because I prefer playing a game to watching hours of anime cut scenes.

    Zelda because FF has turned into bad anime with moments of actual game play sprinkled throughout like the scattered droppings of a herd of running Chocobos.

    I think Aliens are the best, and here's why.


    - Exoskeletons. Their skeletons are on the outside of their bodies. Pretty rad.


    - Acid for blood.


    - Versatile biology. The Alien is imbued with unique characteristics of its host organism.


    - Versatile on Stage & Screen. Have just one Alien and it's a horror movie. Throw in a bunch more and it's an action movie. Throw in Paul W.S. Anderson and it's a pro-wrestling movie (bodyslam!).


    - Did I mention the motherfucking acid?? They bleed it.


    - Led by women. These are equal-opportunity xenomorphs we're talking about here.


    - They were rocking the metal grills before it was hot.


    - Finally, they're not afraid to take one for the team. Like in Alien Resurrection when the two Aliens decide to kill the one, so that its acid blood (!!) would melt through their space-cage and open the way towards freedom and revenge against Brad Dourif.

    So hopefully my point is proven and the matter is now settled. Alienz4evar.

    Games don't have to be in the same genre to decide whether you like one better than the other.

    I voted Zelda.
