Am I the only one who doesn't think FFVI was the end all be all 16-bit RPG? Oh, this is the wrong thread for that opinion, isn't it...

Kefka sucks and the entire World of Ruin portion is pretty bad, which is like 30-40% of the game. It's also painfully easy. I love it, but I love to rag on it too and it's definitely a bit overrated. Pretty sure I like FF4 more. Those are the two I've replayed the most. My opinion of FF6 seems to downgrade with every replay, while my opinion of FF4 only increases every venture through it and its multitude of various versions and releases. Supreme Victory!

Let's at least set this straight, Celes > Terra.

You're not wrong. That would be Chrono Trigger you're looking for. 8) FFVI is close to perfect, but it ain't perfect. (Neither is Chrono, but shush.)

I'd also put Lunar: Eternal Blue, Lufia II, and Phantasy Star IV up there, if we constrain it to games we actually ended up getting.

Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and EarthBound are the holy trinity. Not just for SNES, not just for 16-bit, but for JRPGs in general.

Hell, those are essentially my top three favorite video games of all time.

I'm starting to think that line is a quote or something.

He really is lame to me. The story gets a bit uninteresting when the Emperor is taken out of the picture. In the WoR Kefka just sits in his tower doing nothing and is probably bored out of his mind. He won and that's a wrap. All the while ExDeath on the other hand wanted to destroy the entire universe, himself along with it. I'm going to have to say ExDeath is cooler. The last 1/4th of both FF4 and FF5 are way better than FF6's.

Kefka's good overall, but he is no Luca Blight or Albedo.

This was developed by Virgin Interactive not Disney. Disney did some of the animation work though, which I think is what sets it apart from the SNES version.

Square has always been really bad at writing villains. At least they've always been bad at writing the ultimate villain. The smaller villains in between you and them are usually okay at least if not pretty good, but the ultimate evil guy always has either a nothing backstory (FFIX) or something so convoluted and complicated they need to make a completely new game to explain it (FFVII).

Yes I know there's some foil between Kefka and Celes where, during the magicite experiements on them, Celes lost her emotions and Kefka's went completely out of control, but I found that absolutely nowhere in the game in the very thorough runthrough I did a year or so back. I don't even know for sure if that explanation is canon (maybe it's only elaborated on in the Japanese release or something). Kefka is just mustache-twirling evil who wants to destroy the world because whatever.

I will clarify that he IS trying to destroy the world though.
He's waiting in the top of his tower, sure, but he's waiting for the world to finally die. He doesn't have the power to do it instantly, but by having the god-statues out of alignment like he has them, life cannot continue indefinitely.
