Final Fantasy V is great for people who love stats and exploiting video games. Try to play it straight and it's tedious and annoying.

This is a completely fair summary. But if you love stats and figuring out how to snap a game over your knee it's AMAZING.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I said it wasn't for me. I suspect if I'd gotten into it like I did Bravely Default, and actually took the time to exploit the systems, I might have appreciated it more. Of course, BD makes some excellent concessions to the player to speed things along, so you can get to the fun of pulling a Bane and breaking the game's back over your knee.

I beat Final Fantasy V back in 2008. I don't remember much about it, other than the fact it was boring and had a bullshit final boss. I don't blame Squaresoft for not having localized that one in ye olde days. FFVI is a tremendous improvement in every way over FFV.

I am digging the FFV hate. I have never liked it (the novelty of the job system wears thin) but back in my JRPG days, the Internet acted like FFV walked on water.

Final Fantasy V had a very early fan translation (1998 I think).

That alone was enough to cause bunches of hype.

This is because you haven't played Final Fantasy VI yet. Game's so good it'll fill three slots.

Outside of the obviously broken stuff like the X-Fight Sword Magic combo you really need to dive deep into how things work, and be willing to look at enemy statistics to realize that oh shit, this boss is vulnerable to instant death, or crap, this boss can be locked into a loop of using a harmless ability if you have up reflect. But if you're willing to go in that deep you realize that basically every party is very viable in the Four Job Fiesta. Playing it normally can definitely be a slog.

ExDeath is the best villain in the franchise.
