So after getting a new PSP to play the recent FFIV release, I now kind of want to play FFI or II for the PSP after this game. Question is, which one? What would you recommend?

As far as I know, I dont think you can buy II solo. I, personally, liked the game. Buy the combo if they have one.

If you've never played either I say get the anniversary edition and play them in order. If you genuinely want to know which one each of us thinks you should play my vote goes to FFI, hands down.

Aeris-Logan: You can't get them separately EXCEPT on PSP. PSX and GBA bundled them together, but on PSP they're two separate discs.

Fatal, AmaCoN has both of them, new, for ten bucks apiece. I think it's worth the money at that price to get both, but I say that as someone who has both but still hasn't tried FF2 yet (and actually hasn't finished FF1 yet, either smile.gif ). My vote would go to FF1 if you choose to do just one, though.

They're both definitely worth playing on PSP, and like R51 said, you can't beat AmaCoN's prices. But if it's one or the other, I'd say go with FF1.

I reccomend getting Dawn of Souls for the GBA. It has BOTH, and I got mine for thirteen bucks.

And you can't beat the new Soul of Rebirth.

Well, had the original poster not specifically asked about PSP, sure, the GBA version is a pretty good buy regardless of the price. The PSP version does look a lot nicer, and has the same content as the GBA version, but if you don't have a PSP and have something instead that can play GBA carts, then yeah, the GBA version's great.

Of course, if you had joined CoN faster, you could have used AmaCoN to get the game even cheaper than thirteen bucks, but live and learn, eh? wink.gif

I personally preferred II, as I enjoy it when one can build their characters freely without being restricted by classes.
For a more traditional experience, pick I.

Enjoyed them all.

I know I'm late to the party on this one, but the two versions don't have the same content. The PSP version and iOS version both have a second postgame mega-dungeon that the GBA version does not have. In FF I it's called the Labyrinth of Time, and in FF II it's called the Arcane Labyrinth. Both of them are basically an endgame challenge dungeon with equipment that surpasses that of the GBA's endgame dungeons. In Dissidia: Final Fantasy the Warrior of Light's best weapon, the Barbarian's Sword, is from the Labyrinth of Time.

Get Final Fantasy II: That way if you decide to buy FF I for the NES you won't have redundancy in your collection and can play the game how it was originally meant to be played: With stock. My understanding is that all of the remakes basically replace the original stock mechanic with the more familial M.P. mechanic introduced in the later games?

Yep, although they retain the three-spell limit for each level and gaining new spell levels through level-ups. One thing that does bug me about the remakes (the GBA version I know does this) is that they no longer allow you to purchase spells for a character if your character doesn't have a high enough spell level (for example, you can't buy Thundara for a Black Mage with a spell level of 2). It does have its advantage in that higher-level spells don't have excessive MP costs compared to more useful spells. (Poisona for example has a low MP cost compared to the limited number of casts a Level 4 spell gets early in the game.)

Personally, I prefer FF1, because it's a more classic experience with a much simpler system. If you're into a complex, highly-customizable levelling system, FF2 has those elements.

I found the Airships to be one of the least annoying things in that game. It isn't that hard to figure out where you are, unlike Final Fantasy IV, where it is a complete and utter pain to get a remote idea of your location.
