Oh, FF7 was well worth getting, but the rest, are, kinda, poop!

FF7 is not just worth getting.
FF7 owns you (I am the FFVII freak).
Even Pokemon is better than that .

I am in a new generation , the best RPG , is not even a RPG , it's FREE ( Full Reactive Eyes Entartainment)

You guys know what i'm talking about :D
You have angered me.
Prepare to die!

I am the FFVII worhiper.

FF7 in my opinion, was the last good FF.
(of those I've played).

8 and 9 seemed lacking.. they just didn't 'hook' me.
Can't speak for 10.. since I've not seen it yet.

To me, "Final Fantasy" used to make me think "Great RPG!"
Now adays, the word has lost all meaning >_<

Then again, I find it harder on average to enjoy games I used to love when I was younger.

Ok looking once again this is crazy mad cheating on the part of DreamIncluder. Everytime SmashDC is up Dreamincluder goes up by much more. Hell Dreamincluder shouldnt even be counted as it nothing compared to smashDc its a freaking program thats not good at all. Plus I dont even think this many people would ever vote on it. Its clear someones making multiple accounts to get more votes.


I'm hoping MrSiggler comes out with a totaly new game that proves he's the much better programer.
DNR the current kickass dc programer. Thanks
for the emulator I've been waiting 2 years for.

Thanks to Reaper2k2 also for showing interest into WSC emulation.

"Hell Dreamindcluder should't even be counted as it nothing compared to smashDc its a freaking programs that not good at all" stop saying your opinion in a way that sounds like a fact. i personnaly liked it dream inducer more, but you don't here me fighting for it. sure there may be cheating, maybe not. just dont' express your opinions as facts

Point well taken. But a game compared to a program isnt fare. Plus I dont even think theres this many people active on this board to have this many votes casted.

i agree there has to be cheating, thats why this poll shouldn't matter much in the final decision

Of course when what you favor isn't winning, there must be some kind of cheating involved right? I'm pretty sure I said the same when I use to lose at monopoly as a child. And wasn't that review on the front page a bit biased. Surely it was created with the intension of swaying voters opinions.

Then again, I didn't think this poll was going to be made public. I thought it would be a consensus of a few select individuals. Shows what I know.

i voted for dream inducer, and its ahead, but i still think there is cheating. i never read the review, because i voted beforehand, so i don't know if it was biased or not(probally not)

/me has a sinking feeling this is turning into a site war :( Ya know Sanchez was trying to do something nice for the community and then fuckheads had to come in and argue this and that. Let his rules choose the winner quit with the biased opinions and just wait and see what happens jesus freakin christ is that so hard? Don't you people have better things to do?

You have no right to say "(probally not)" if you haven't actually read the thing. The entire review is just a slam against Di.

Regarding the issue of this become a site war... I have nothing against SmashDC. I think it's a great homebrew game. I like Siggler and we talk every once in a while. All I took into account was the impact of which the releases have had on me. SmashDC is a cool game, which I play occasionally, but Di allows me burn everything on the same cdr. While SmashDC is very nice, it is just another homebrew game. Di gives everyone the chance to easily try out SmashDC along with many other homebrew games that they probably had never "wasted" a cdr on in the first place. It is possible we're trying to compare two very dissimilar programs. Just my 2 cents.

Regarding everyone saying that Di is to hard to use... I won't plug my site, but you get the idea.

your right, i never burned a homebrew game before because i didnt want to use a cd just to find out i dont like the game. but now with di, i put them all on a cd, and after playing them, im glad i did.
that is why i voted for di.

I havn't actually used DI, but infact, I have only ever done 3 succesful burns, Smeg, Dreamsnes and Smash DC... I just need a new burner, but I think when I do get a new burner, I shall try out DI, it seems to be getting enough hits to say its good.
But I still think Smash is the best!

I wouldn't go that far, but Skies of Arcadia seems to be the better RPG to me too. I've never played the Japanese Final Fantasies, but of the US ones the one which seemed best was #3 on the SNES.

While FF7 definitely looks better with the CGI pre-rendered backgrounds and spell/attack animations, too much of it seemed to be predictable, and there was little to catch my interest to continue playing past 30-40 hours. I finished FF3, but the last 10-15 hours were forced play, more to satisfy the completist in myself than anything else.

With Skies of Arcadia though, the game looked incredible with zero reliance on FMV or pre-rendered CGI. I would often start playing it at midnight, well aware that I had to be up at 7am, and at 3am I'd still be playing. And it was one of the few RPGs I've played through where I enjoyed the game in its last few hours as much as I had during the rest of the game.

... I haven't actually tried DreamInducer, but SmashDC is best!...
These are some solid arguements, aren't they?

i dont know if its me, but it seems smash dc is nothing more than a smashtv hack. nothing against mr. siggler, he did a good job. dream inducer is something created from nothing. ill probably catch a lot of heat from this post, oh well. anyways, good job to all the contestants.

Ok, I've had it. I should have known that this could not have been done in an intelligent adult matter.

I thank everyone who entered. I will announce a winner as planned.
