Final Fantasy IV was never released in America, right? Or am I thinking of a different one in the series?

I am an expert in crap!

Final Fantasy 4 (as it was called in Japan) was our second for the SNES. I could give you a drawn out history if you want.

Winner: Bubble Bobble

Next?

Bubble Bobble

Gauntlet

I know I'm going to get buried alive for saying this, but Gauntlet strikes me as the most cynical exercise in arcade exploitation ever. "Haha you're constantly dying! Put more quarters in, bitch! Warrior needs food badly and you need to EAT IT!!!!" So... um:

Winner: Bubble Bobble

Let's go with...

Bubble Bobble

vs.

Maniac Mansion

Final Fantasy: Released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in America and the Famicom in Japan.

Final Fantasy 2: Released in Japan for the Famicom in Japan, unreleased in the US. Possibly the most unpleasant RPG ever.

Final Fantasy 3: Released in Japan for the Famicom in Japan, unreleased in the US. Had a neat job/class system thing but no plot to speak of.

Final Fantasy 4: Released in Japan for the Super Famicom, not quite released in the US. Pretty much introduced the formula for every FF released in the US since.

Final Fantasy 4: Easy Type: Like FF4 but, well, easier. Was released in the US for the Super Nintendo under the title "Final Fantasy 2".

Final Fantasy 5: Released in Japan for the Super Famicom. Unreleased in America. Used a variation of the FF3 job/class system, and was the last FF not to follow the FF4mula (haha, I kill me).

Final Fantasy 6: Released in Japan for, you guessed it, the Super Famicom. Released in America for the Super Nintendo as Final Fantasy 3. Arguably the best of the series.

FF's 7 to whatever we're up to now were released for the Playstation and/or Playstation 2 in both countries under the same name.

There's also the SaGa Frontier/Final Fantasy Adventure nonsense and Secret of Mana/Seiken Denetsu/Secret of Evermore fiasco, but I'm sure I've already told you far more than you ever wanted to know.

Bubble Bobble over Gauntlet. My God, man! Well, at least it was Gauntlet and not Gauntlet II. How many times does a sequel improve on the original? And yet, that is the case with Gauntlet II, or "G2" as we call it on the dock.

Anyway, winner for this round: Maniac Mansion....


Next fight:

Maniac Mansion

vs.

Shenmue


FIGHT!

See, friends? This thread is much more interesting than a dossier of evildoings. Dishbringer, I command you to carry on this thread, should I again become an irresistible "target of opportunity." Do it for Papa Saddam. :cool:

And Maniac Mansion is destroyed, all its inhabitants <b>blowed up real good</b>.

No, wait, we didn't kill its inhabitants.

No, wait, maybe we did.

Hey, Purple Tentacle's giving a speech!

But wait, maybe it's not <i>really</i> Purple Tentacle. Maybe it's Green Tentacle dressed up like him.

Fuck, we have <b>no earthly idea</b>.
