I can't really defend the FF series... but have you played RE 2 and 4? They are amazing!
I've tried them out, I dunno the gameplay just feels awkward for me. The atmosphere is definitely great though.

Well I do enjoy both the Dragon Quest and SMT series...but those are really the exceptions. I in general find classic style JRPGs very boring. Now an RPG like Dark Souls...that's a whole different story.
I swear this might as well be the game that has the worst hype ever.
What the heck was with all those unnecessary violence? This game is trying to look too vulgar and too violent imo,
so many things make no sense. I mean, all those missions are just variation of rinse and repeat and I'll be lucky if I get a variation
because sometimes its the freaking same thing.
The driving controls is lackluster, the characters feels like cardboard cutouts of stereotypical gangsters and what the I don't even care
to continue this rant like the game itself. I go back to it maybe what? Once a few weeks, only to blow cars up and find various ways to die
instead of doing its various missions or dating girlfriend number 3.
I can never get myself to complete the game because of how freaking shallow the plot is.
And some missions get unbearably irritating.
Oh I'm pretty sure I offended some gta fans here but I don't care, I hate this thing.
Initially it managed to build up the suspense and feels like a thriller-novel game.
But in the end it was all just mindless slashing, repeat this and that and more mindless slashing.
You spend hours driving a car, getting lost, slashing zombies head off, dying, more slashing.
Zombies aren't a threat, you don't feel scared because you have a car.
The NPCS are dry and some flat out annoying.
Playing as the MC is a chore. Repetitive.
Dragon Quest series
I don't get why people love this so much. I agree that it's pretty fun at first but then it goes into grinding mode REALLY fast.
I like adventure games but Dragon quest seems to be the kind where the towns are never ending.
Maybe I'm just put off by the long journey and the sudden difficulty spike in some of the games.
Or walking in dungeons and getting annoyed and really pissed off by the monsters encounter.
Ugh...there's no max repels in the game either.
SMT is much more fun because of the obvious strategies. I don't hate on DGQ as much as I don't get the hype or the tactics in it.
Black ops, Modern Warfare, "Insert random wargame here with another name and trying to be cool"
No substance. Modern warfare can be painted black ops and nobody can really tell the difference imo.
All of them love to be cool with their very dangerous missions that in the end the only way you can approach them
is just gunning down everyone you see.
Rinse and repeat. Maybe I'm bitching because I'm a loser but I can't stand hours shooting down people again and again.
Is there suppose to be a plot I should care about here?
Most of the time fps online community are the worst gaming ones out there.
Filled with people who think they are kings because
they get a few headshots and whine like a baby when they get insta'd by a newb.
At least Crysis and Halo have the decency to make things unique by offering some awesome bosses/mobs.
L4D was fun because it felt original and had fun melee plus ACTUAL teamwork.
COD and all this fps is just you bitching about whoever stole your kill. It feels like counter strike polished 99 times....graphically.
Kill me if I'm a bad reviewer but I don't care..my experience with FPS had been really bad.

If you have a PSP, try Crisis Core. Maybe it will change your option on FF7 like it did for me.
