Tidus is a star athlete in his city. He is famous, has all the ladies, and simply loves his life. However, one day, his city is attacked by a mysterious evil, and an old family friend shows up, initiating his quest. He is magically taken to the world of Spira, where that evil, known as Sin, ravages the planet and its people with death and destruction. Sin is a punishment for the world's crimes, however, Tidus has been chosen to stop it. He meets up with Lady Yuna, a summoner (and daughter of a high summoner). Summoners can call the power of the fayth; aeons. Aeons are mighty and mystical creatures. Yuna quests for the Final Aeon: the one power that can slay Sin. Tidus joins as one of Yuna's many guardians, and travels with her to obtain the Final Aeon. However, the quest goes much deeper when high-ranking religious leaders betray the teachings of Yevon, the celestial overlord of Spira, and Yevon himself condones it. Tidus battles with his past and his true self while trying to sort ... Written by Flotis / Agent0042

The best game ever made!
8 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WARNING: I advise anyone who has not finished the game to not read this comment.

Final Fantasy X is without a doubt the best game ever. I'd say that this game has it all. Adventure, sorrow, happiness, love, fighting, good musical rhythms, and endless sarcasm... what more could you want in a game? This is a game that any video game lover should not go without ever playing, and I am going to go through the game piece by piece to explain to you why it is a perfect example for a video game should be.

We start out with Tidus, a Blitzball player from Zanarkand whose life goes on a spiral of endless adventures once he is ambushed by an entity called Sin, which we find out later in the game is his father Jecht. After he is sucked into another time zone, he ends up meeting a variety of colorful and ever so lovable characters that turn out to be the best that has ever happened to him, especially his lover Yuna, a summoner from Besaid who is on a pilgrimage to destroy Sin and rid Spira of it forever. The game also includes Lulu, my favorite character, a black mage with dark sarcasm but a good heart. Rikku, probably the most lovable character, an energetic Al Bhed. Wakka, another fellow Blitzer who fights with his Blitzball. Auron, Tidus's fathers Jecht's entrusted friend who is set out to help Tidus and Yuna through out their "story", and Kimahri, a Ronso who fights with a powerful spear.

After we get a lot of more time to know these characters, the journey begins and we are set off to numerous islands, towns, cities and realms where we fight off never-ending fiends, earn powerful creatures known as Aeons, and make some mortal enemies, such as Seymour.

Oh well, no need for me to babble on about the absolutely magnificent and breathtakingly wonderful characters when you've played the game. Some other things that makes Final Fantasy X the best game ever, is that you are never for one bit bored or uninterested. I love how it sucks you in right from the beginning and never lets go. It has awesome battles, great graphics in their movies, and perfect songs and scores that fit in with the many different moods and atmospheres of the game, which keeps you on edge every second on the second. The many different twists and turns that this game makes up where you have no idea what's going to happen next are absolutely mind wracking! It's also very challengingly difficult which makes the game even more addictive than it already is.

The real sorrow is when the game is over. Tidus returns to his own time in Zanarkand by jumping off the airship after Yuna gives a heart-wrenching weep and jumps forward to hug him and falls through his fading body which immediately puts you in tears for the rest of the ending of the game, where Yuna is left giving a powerfully poetic speech that makes you bawl your eyes out even more, because you have fallen so in love with these characters and hate to see them go, but at the same time, are so glad that you had the chance to partake in such a powerful and beautiful video game, and who could forgot Suteki Da Ne, perfect ending song for this game. I couldn't help but play it all over again.

There you have it. This is my favorite game of all time simply because all the characters are characterized perfectly by the actors playing them, it has the best adventure game plot that I have ever encountered, the way that all the twists and turns are carefully planned out just shock me and excite me even more to reach the conclusion of the non-stop entertaining game, and that it can bring out every emotion known to man in you while you're playing it.

Final Fantasy X is a greatly marvelous game that sets an unbeatable reputation for video games everywhere. I practically worship it and will never even begin to think another video game is better than it, ever...
