Very few franchises last as long or are as prolific as the Final Fantasy series, but with so many titles under its belt, there are a few that may not get the respect they’re due. Today, we’re looking at the top five under-appreciated Final Fantasy titles.
Without any restrictions the debate could spiral out of control: Do we count The Final Fantasy Legend as a Final Fantasy game despite it really being the SaGa series? What about the Mana series as it has its origins as a Final Fantasy Gaiden? Bravely Default is a wonderful series that deserves more love, and the developers believe its a gaiden type spinoff as well, does it count? To avoid all of these pitfalls, the games on this list will be limited to numbered Final Fantasy titles and their direct sequels/prequels.
