Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
And people are disagreeing with your sentiment because it's just not true. Load times are slow, but it's definitely not unplayable at all. Your hiperbolic wording won't help you make your case either, and the thing is that the game is objectively worse in these videos you presented, while you still say it's what saves it. Overall this thread is just a huge mess that won't get anywhere.
By the way, in a world where FFII (JP) exists, there can hardly exist any battle system worse in any FF.
I never said that FFIX has the worst battle system in the series. I just said its battles, at default setting, make the game unplayable.
Please quantify how this statement is hyperbolic if many in this thread agree with it? Is it hyperbolic because you disagree?
