Song Of Prayer

Without words

Thirty years now have passed since the first Final Fantasy game was released.
Therefore, I thought, in the spirit of the warriors of light we could rekindle that
esprit, review the games, with the perception of the past as well with the thoughts
of the present, and maybe we can celebrate the good times, which will create for
some or perhaps even more a delight.

who follow orders in their own way.

Number Nine
09. Vivi and Quina getting married in Conde Petie in FF IX. I mean, that must
be the funniest video game scene ever.

Number Eight
08. The dwarves in FF I and in FF IV. In FF I they construct a canal and with
a bit of TNT, provided by the party, they finish the job. Thus, opening the entire
world to the party. In FF IV they help quite a lot as they fight of the Red Wings
in the subterranean world and draw attention, so the party can sneak into the
Tower of Babil. In FF V the long lost Dwarf Kingdom lies at the bottom of the
ocean at the Great Trench with only a few residents living at that spot. There is
also Mithril Town, which inhabitants frogs, beavers and miniature people in FF IV.

Garnet in FF IX.

Number Four
04. Lagunas cramp, his troop in general on their missions, his acting in a movie,
involving a real life dragon, not a life sized model as he assumes and the fight
against Cactor in FF VIII.

Number Three
03. King Gorn going mad, splitting his army in two and force them to fight each
other to the death in FF III.

Number Two
02. Odins (who cannot be beaten) fight against Cifer, whom splits him open in
FF VIII.

Number One
01. The Fight against Gilgamesh at the Big (A) Bridge (too far) in FF V.

Starkle, starkle little twink . . . Now its time that you guys SINK!!!

Hasta la bye bye!

Enough expository banter! Now we fight like men! And ladies! And
ladies who dress like men!

Final Fantasy Game.

11. The last evening, when Tifa and Cloud are waiting at the edge of the North
Crater, before their descent into the cave in the morning in FF VII.

Hmm. . . But thats alright, even if no one comes back. As long as Im


with you . . . As long as youre by my side . . . I wont give up even if

stroy their home and fly away from the fireball in FF X.

controllable in space by Squall and the destruction of Trabia Garden in FF VIII.

VII.

Number Six
06. Cyan chasing his family on the Phantom Train in FF VI.

05. When Galuf takes on Exdeath all alone, although he has no chance, when
Lonewolf moves in front of the pipes to at least delay the explosion of the Fire
Crystal so that the party can escape, the entrapment of Zeza in the Barrier Tower
and the shattering of the Crystals in FF V.

&

Mindu giving it all to open the last sealed door in Mysidia Tower and then collap-
sing dead from exhaustion in FF II.

Number Four

delivery of the bomb ring to the Village of Mist, the bombing of Damcyan, Palom
and Porom sacrifice for the mission as they petrify themselves, Tellahs story and

leads to the fight with the giant rat in FF III.

04. Overtaking the game and with that the anticipation of the developers, for

fighting the Tatzelworm in FF IX at the first possibility and becoming in all three
cases practically invincible.

03. When you beat a super enemy as the Weapons.

Number Two
02. Receiving finally a perfect score.

Number One

depth of the game (the branching of magic, the ramification of the abilities of each
character, . . . , at the same time the progression of the story).

This day will never come again, so let me have this moment.

You dont need a reason to help other people.


Zidane

Number Eleven
11. The triggering of the trap, prompting the fight against Demon Wall in FF IV,

09. The air battle as the party tries to flee through the South Gate in FF IX.

08. The battle of the Gardens in FF VIII.

Number Seven

Number Six
06. Locks rescue of Celes and the contraction and submerging of the entire Figaro
Castle, the entrance via airship into Vector and the rise of the Continent of the
Esper in FF VI.

Karlabos, the explosion of the Castle of Karnak, the ride of Galuf on Hiryuu the

continent buried beneath the desert into the sky above in FF V.

Number Two
02. Ballroom dance at Balamb Garden in FF VIII and the fight for alignment of
the Three Statues of the Goddesses on the floating island in FF VI.

Number One
01. That it was possible, with so little technical capabilities as the NES, to create
such a vast game as FF I, FF II and F III, and with the SNES FF IV, FF V and
FF VI and then with the PSone a jump to three dimensional was made, in which
FMV took place with no extra loading time on top with an incredible soundtrack.

All that matters is whats inside us.

15
Number Four

7 The most defining moments
Each of these elements that were introduced enriched the role playing gaming in-
dustry by far.

Aeris:
Cloud . . . Im searching for you.

Cloud:
. . . . . . . . . ?

Aeris:
I want to meet you.

Cloud:
But Im right here.

Aeris:
(I know, I know . . . what I mean is . . . ) I want to meet . . . you.

Number Twelve
12. The beginning of FF I, because it began everything with that.

Number Eleven
11. The introduction of the legendary Cid and the Chocobo in FF II and the in-
troducing of the ATB system in FF IV.

Number Ten
10. The birth of the summoning magic in FF III.

Number Nine
09. The fight against Demon Wall in the Sealed Cave in FF IV and Atmos in
FF V (because both were a new way of creating pressure inside the game onto the
player).

17
Number Eight

introduction of super enemies in general.

Number Seven
07. The introduction of free enemies that are visible on the map in FF XII.

Number Six
06. The initiation of Full Motion Videos in FF VII. One height was reached with
the Ballroom dance of Squall and Rinoa (although it might be falling through
time) in FF VIII. Prior to that NonPlayer Characters would sometimes do a
routine, which can be thought of as a pre stage of a FMV.

18

an originally song sung by Risa Ohki called Terras Theme or Terras Melodie:

Terras Theme, Terras Melodie



Tina No Tema


Haruka Tooku Yoru O Koete


Sabaku No Umi O Samayou


Kami No Koe Wa Shinkirou


Wasurerareta Hitobito


Kage Wa Shiroku Yurameki Tatsu


Ima Hitotabi No Maboroshi


Aoku Moeru Yuusha No Yume


Towa Ni Nemuru Hitobito

The starting violins at this point are incredibly fantastic.

So many stories, so many characters, so many tragedies, . . .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNefNLOHVYk

Whenever sang my songs,


On the stage, on my own,
Whenever said my words,
Wishing they would be heard,
I saw you smiling at me,
Was it real or just my fantasy,
Youd always be there in the corner,
Of this tiny little bar,

My last night here for you,


Same old songs, just once more,
My last night here with you?
Maybe yes, maybe no,
I kind of liked it your way,
How you shyly placed your eyes on me,

Oh, did you ever know?


That I had mine on you,

Darling, so there you are,


With that look on your face,
As if youre never hurt,
As if youre never down,
Shall I be the one for you,
Who pinches you softly but sure,
If frown is shown then,
I will know that you are no dreamer,

So let me come to you,


Close as I wanted to be,
Close enough for me,
To feel your heart beating fast,
And stay there as I whisper,

How I loved your peaceful eyes on me,


did you ever know,

21
That I had mine on you,

Darling, so share with me,


Your love if you have enough,
Your tears if yourre holding back,
Or pain if thats what it is,
How can I let you know,
Im more than the dress and the voice,
Just reach me out then,
You will know that youre not dreaming,

Darling, so there you are,


With that look on your face,
As if youre never hurt,
As if youre never down,
Shall I be the one for you,
Who pinches you softly but sure,
If frown is shown then,
I will know that you are no dreamer.
