^ Yeah, it is a pretty popular game, but I was never able to get into it. I mean, I know it's a fantasy game, but it's a little hard to take a plot that involves an underwater soccer player travelling around the world to kill a giant fish seriously. The gameplay was fantastic, but the ridiculous plot, terrible characters (it's really saying something when Wakka is my favourite), and horrible, horrible Puzzle Temples really sucked the fun out of the game. The mandatory blitzball section didn't help matters any either.
Although Final Fantasy has always been a polarizing series. I doubt there's a single Final Fantasy fan who doesn't hate at least 2-3 of the main titles.
