Well as we all know FF9 had a pretty different battle system the the current Final Fantasy games out at the time
Its is very diferent then the others (Multible choices allowed)

I liked the fact that you could equip abilities as well as heal the whole grp with just one Curaga. It really saves time and in some cases prevents the death of the entire party. :)

I liked the equiping abilities. You could equip more abilities to the characters than on the other FF games. And the fact that you can heal poison without useing a item.

I agree!!The Equiping abilities were easy to use and Understand!!like Auto_potion,Auto-Float,etc...they are great Indeed :)

I like that you can equip equipment to each of the characters and they can learn abilities from it and keep the abilities..it makes it so much easier. I also like how you can equip each character with support abilities to help them in defence wise,attack wise, or just to help other party members (I.E. Protect Girls). And I like that you can cast one curaga to heal the whole party ^_^

I liked the four party members!!! ^_^ I always tend to fall in love with a lot of characters from a certain game, and most other FFs have only three characters in their party. FFIX with a four-member party is already hard enough to decide, in my opinion.
"THE MORE TTHE MERRIER!" Tee hee, that's one of my fav sayings.

*L* Ack, you know, there's nothing on that list that I DIDN'T like! :D I'm kinda strapped to think of "others," though. Hehehe, brain isn't quite working this late at night! ;)
The four party members... YES! I liked it, very much so! Hehe, but becasue FF9 was the first FF that I actually played random battles with and knew what I was doing, when I went back and played the other FFs, I was like, "Hey! THREE?? ACK ACK ACK!!!" :laugh:
The equipment abilities... ooooh, yeah, baby! That's probably one reason why FF9 is a good first FF for people. The equip-an-ietm-learn-an-ablilty technique is easy to learn. :D
Support abilities... WHEE indeed! Heehee... thou shalt learn auto-regen and HP+ and MP+ abilities!
Easier to use magic. Hehe, I liked, but I'm not quite sure what you mean about that. Do you mean the MP thing instead of drawing magic, like in FF8? I liked it in that sense, but FF7 and FF10 were both also pretty straightforward when it came to using magic. :)
New abilities.. YES YES! SHOCK! BZZTT!! Not to mention the dynes. Hehe, does that count? ;)
Unique skills... YEP! That's part of what makes FF9 such a highly customizeable game. In FF10, my Tidus became a Yuna by the end of the game, so there was much less uniqueness about the character skills.
Being able to cast a spell on the entire party.... AAAGGGHHHH! I got so used to this that when I pick up another FF game, I'm constantly hitting the R1 buttons and getting frustrated when I can't hit more than one team member or enemy. Hehehe, "LULU, DANGIT! HIT THEM ALL!! ARGH!" ;)
The last two were really related to why I like the unique skills and abilities. Hehe, figuring out what works best in what battle is part of the fun!! :)
... and we now return to your regularly scheduled topic, without any further Kuromercial interruptions.

I liked been able to have equip abilities. They were very simple to uderstand i thought and i grasped what to do quickly. Plus they are pretty cool :P
Been able to cast 1 spell on the entire party was exelent! It saved a whole bunch of time and so was real useful in sticky situations. Too bad I didn't find out about it untill i hit the button by accident three thirds through disk...:s
i liked the abilites,equipping certain things for certain enemies aded that extra touch of strategy to the game,which isnt really seen much in previous ff's.

I liked the fact that you don't have to wait for the summons. Ark in particular is incredibly long. Incidently, you can tell when Dagger is going to cast a short summon. She doesn't dissappear as quick.

Oooh, I like LOTS of the stuff!!! ^__^
Okay, first of all... 4 Party Members! I don't think I'd survive with just 3! Zidane, Dagger, Amarant, Vivi... ^__^
Equipment Abilites! Yeah! ^__^
A lot of the Unique skills, too. They came in handy! ^__^ I don't know if I'd have survived without them!
Being able to affect every opponent with one spell was also pretty awsome. ^__^
Firaga, on one opponent? Nah.
And all my character too, of course! Curaga, everyone! ^__^
And pretty much anything else... hehe. I don't think I can name them, though.
Probably the only thing I didn't like was sharing exp.
Yeah, you don't have to be an only child to hate sharing. :P Mwahaha! ^__^ (I shouldn't be smiling, should I?)
