The manliest men of Final Fantasy: Part one

9:08 PM on 02.13.2007 // Faith

I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XII for the last few days and I’ve come to the realization that SquareEnix needs to be reminded what a real man looks like. Every male character in the game is prettier looking then all the females in the game, except Fran … no one is hotter than Fran.

Honestly though, if I see one more male character whose hair makes him look like he’s part bird I am going to scream. Both Vossler and Basch look like their mothers mated with a Chocobo. Vossler especially cause he's got that nose that looks like a beak.

I’m sure everyone will argue that FFXII has lots of great male characters and I do agree that personality wise the guys are cool, but I don’t like playing with male characters who use more hair products than me. Sorry but that’s just the way I feel.

So to give SquareEnix a little reminder on what men should look like in the next Final Fantasy game, I'm providing them over the next 5 days, a list of three examples of manly men from past Final Fantasy games.

Hit the jump for the first 3 in my list.

Me talk to beavers

Guy from Final Fantasy II aka Gus from Final Fantasy Origins

Guy was a barbarian like warrior who was raised in the wild. He doesn’t talk much, but he does have the ability to talk to beavers. Guy is known more for his physical strength than his intelligence. His main weapon was an axe.

He’s strong, wild and talks to beavers … that sounds like a real man to me.

Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me angry

Xande from Final Fantasy III

Xande, an evil sorcerer who was given the unhappy gift of mortality by his master, the Cloud of Darkness, is a force to be reckoned with. Built like a body builder, Xande chooses to remain in the background until he is ready to fight the party.

He’s big, he’s buff and he’s a bad guy; a true manly man.

I like a man with a big snake

Gutsco the Rogue from Final Fantasy III

Gutsco is a one winged thief who steals the Ice Horns from the dwarfs in order to gain the power of the fire crystal. Gutsco is built strong for physical fighting, but can also change into a giant salamander at will for more fierce battles. His character tends to carry a giant snake with him too.

Gutsco is another strong hunk of man. He likes the idea of power and enjoys reptiles. Add a waterbed and you have one hell of a night.

Look for 3 more manly men of Final Fantasy tomorrow.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.
