GUG Plays: Final Fantasy (Franchise)

Johnathan Floyd

Have you ever wondered who did it better, Sephiroth or Kefka? What about if Yuna or Terra went at it, who could beat who? What about if every ace pilot argued over whose turn it was to pilot the airship? What about if the old guys got together, and the sheer amount of awesome skill and talent broke the game? What if Barrett’s fatherly instincts made him best babysitter across all time and space? You need to try Opera Omnia.

Good news: You don’t have to have played any of the Dissidia games to play Opera Omnia.

Bad news: Gathering the ultimate weapons for your favorite character may take a hot minute.

Spiritus and Materia make a world for the warriors to rest. But Torsions appear and disrupt this plan, so it’s all back to the same tune: good versus evil. This time around is Mog, a standard Moogle that isn’t employed by Materia or Spiritus, yet wants the heroes to gather light, and destroy Torsions. The story gets drawn out, being a mobile game and all, but it does have its interesting moments. The question of are Torsions bad gets raised, and why can villains join your roster to fight for good? I’ll leave that open for exploration.
