Welcome to Geek Fight! This is a semi-regular thread around here, where we pit two characters, items, events or concepts from the different Final Fantasy games against each other. So, let's start out with our rules.
Rules of Geek Fight 1 - Each Geek Fight will take the time needed. No more, no less. You can change your vote, though. Votes get tallied when they do. Get over it. 2 - If you can't decide, there will be a third option. This option is always awesome. 3 - In your post, you must voice and defend your opinion. This may include nifty images. Or fan art. Or insults against the other sides progenitors. 4 - To defend your opinion, you must use Geek Logic. Geek Logic consists of any arbitrary opinion you like, as long as it backs up your preference. This means using any version of the concept, going after any particular aspect, or just plain random thoughts.
Previous Winners Ep. 1 - White Mage vrs. Black Mage - WHITE MAGE Ep. 2 - Moogles vrs. Chocobos - MOOGLES
Well, I wanted to kick off Geek Fights with this one, so I've been keeping it up my sleeve for a while. Why? I can't quite remember right now. I like exploring the small differences.
Okay, first of all, I love both of them. Really. But the reason my vote is going to Squall is because FFVIII is the game that got me into the series. It was my first FF (...sort of, I played IX first but only the very, very beginning), and right away, I loved Squall. It would be a really, really bad idea to underestimate my love of that game in general...it can be kind of frightening. Ask anyone who's known me long enough. XD
Not that I'd say it's my FAVORITE, because I love every game in the series that I've played. But it's got nostalgia associated with it that only IX can (almost) equal for me.
I never played eight (refer to the tragic tale of my glitchy disk) and I love the bit at the start were cloud is a total ass hole. I actually like him as a character but not when he's being whiney. TBH i only love him so much because I just completed crisis core and the stuff zack said to him in the final scene made me want to cuddle him.
I'm voting Cornholio. I disliked VII, and didn't get far enough into VIII to get a good feel for Squall. Since my only main recollection of him is as Leon in Kingdom Hearts, it's hardly fair to vote for him based on that merit. :x
