Competition to Speedrun 21 Final Fantasy Games

This is pretty insane, and I think it is great that someone thought of this :lol:

Details from their FAQ:
-Starting December 1st, the first to complete the games (and their set challenges) wins; based on real time. Meaning the more a player plays, the more of an advantage they have. Expect some long streams!

Of course, there are some differences in player skill/knowledge, so I'll outline them here:
I can speedrun Final Fantasy 5, 7, 9, 10 and 13-2
Crumps can speedrun 4 and 6, however, has played more of the games through casually once before.

We have agreed to NOT skip cutscenes on the games that have cutscene skip (X-2 onward)

We both have Patreons set up for you to have us do additional goals.
My incentives are to beat each game twice (Full list at www.patreon.com/cereth).
Crumps has incentives to defeat the superbosses of the games.

I am in awe of the free time that some people have. I barely have time to finish a platformer these days, much less blast through decades worth of RPGs.
The PSTV is amazing.

Those lists are pretty amusing.

Both have the FFIV Interlude listed... Isn't that more of an hour-long "bonus feature" than an actual game?

Chrono Trigger is one of the "bonus" games. Whaaaaat?

Also,

Final Fantasy 8 - PS1 (FUCK THIS GAME)
Final Fantasy 12 - PS2 (FUCK THIS GAME)


:lol:

But yeah, this is insane.

I don't know if anyone noticed, but I beat Final Fantasy I & II this year. I have a long term goal of (re)playing III, IV, V, Mystic Quest, VI, and maybe VII before 2017 or so. Any more than that would kill me.

I liked Final Fantasy 8.

FF12 was a disappointment, though.

FF8 PC is a ballsy move.

Wouldn't Zell's moves be super hard to pull of on a keyboard? Or is it just a shit port?

I forgot that FFVIII had been recently released on Steam, with the necessary fixes. The original release is very well known for being extremely temperamental to try and get running on a modern PC.

As for Zell's moves, he only has two. Left Right and Circle X (I might have the order flipped on one or both). Everything else is just a waste of time.

I'm still working on a first time completion on most of the Final Fantasy games since original release dates. I don't think I'm going to win this.

I think the question is......

Can someone finish 21 Final Fantasy games in the time it takes darsparx to finish 1? 8)
