Den of Geek celebrates Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward by ranking all of the main Final Fantasy games!
The thing about Final Fantasy is everyone will point out a favorite in the series for him/her. My favorite is FFXII and i thought it was a masterpiece.
VIII all the way. Junction system was so fun to use, triple triad, story, character development, not to mention probably the greatest soundtrack in any FF game.
Could not agree more :) Bloody 10th in the list ¬¬
I never understood the appeal for 12. Mind sharing what you liked about it?
I loved everything about it... The cast especially Balthier and Fran and i think they are the best duo in the series. The amount of awesomeness they had is unmatched. Vaan and Penelo are cool. Bashe and Ashe were badass too. The gameplay... I hated the game so much at first that i even returned it to the store only to buy it back one month later to spend over 1000 hour in it lol :D The OST.... Was amazing, nuff said. The environment... It was varied and big and beautiful. The graphics... The best on PS2 The monsters... I loved the monster design and the huge amount of variety in the monsters in it and i loved the chaining system which gives you more loot the more monster of the same type you defeat. It even spawns rare ones when you get a high chain. The Story... Now some are skeptical about it but i thought it was awesome and the protagonists shined in the game with some witty dialogue. In the end though, not everyone will like it but if you do, you will be hooked for a long long long time :) Give it another shot if you can.
FF9 for me, it was also my first FF game.
To be honest, FFXIV is just FFXII done right. Which is actually kinda funny that I say that because it's LITERAL. There were supposed to be no more single player FF's after X. Once they realized that that wasn't a good plan they pulled the 180 on XII. It's just a shallow MMO. No roles, no classes, no actual meaningful skills. Dragon Age is also FFXII done better. Not that FFXII's gambits didn't revolutionize AI.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 over Final Fantasy X-2
In my opinion: FFXII > FFVIII > FFVI > FFVII > FFIV > FFV > XIII > FFX > FFIX > FFII > FFI Not counting MMOs, spinoffs, or sequels. FFXIV ARR and FF Tactics are good though.
Finally, someone who likes FFXII the most like me. You and I mate are so damn rare lol.
I LOVE FFXII. i remember playing that game for 10 hours straight the day i got it. I would kill for an HD remaster for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita.
I remember playing about 25-30 hours of XII and then just ended up stopping dead in my tracks. Don't know why, I was enjoying what I was playing. I guess I've partially held off on playing in hopes of a PS3/4/vita remaster like X got. I'd gladly pay for that upgrade. Plus, trophies :P
6, 9, 8, 4, 13-2, 5, 13, 7, 10, 1, 2, 3, LR13, 10-2, 11, 14 (fine in their own right but not really enjoyable when I have to pay a ton of money and do tons of pointless stuff to get bits and pieces of the story)
I'm playing ff 13 now I like it more now then before .
Its a great game but its a shame it didn't reach the excellence level of the likes of the older ones. But it is still a great game.
I agree!..I don't care who disagrees,FF-XIII is one of my favorite FF games,played it at least 5 times..love the fast & furious battle system including the characters Lightning,Fang & Sazh.
Alright, so 6, 4, 9, 7, 8, 13, 12, 10. That's my list, haven't played the ones I omitted.
As far as sequels go, Lightning Returns and X-2 were pretty good!
Final Fantasy IX will always be my favorite. End of story.
Same, a true masterpiece in every sense of the word
Anything over the 13 trilogy if i could go back in time i would erase them from existence. ATB/Turn Based>Action, control only 1 character BS. Final Fantasy's glory days are in the past, especially if Nomura makes FF7 an ARPG(no real fan is asking for that)
My favorites...X,XIII,XII,VIII & 7.
VII, VIII, X, XIII, VI, IX, IV. Didn't finish the rest because I didn't enjoy them enough. I prefer the FFs that have a futuristic setting. And 7&8 are on top because they introduced me to the series.
IX, then VII.
VIII, VII, and IX are my favorite.
The original III, is terrible, IV is my favorite, and as far as XIII goes, sad that that game had so much internal termoil while being developed.
How they gonna dock Final Fantasy XIII for being linear and then have Final Fantasy X at number 2 on the list? Both games are linear. In fact, most Final Fantasy games are linear, esp. at the beginning.
Final Fantasy IX <3
