Top 10 Final Fantasy Games Of All Time

GB: "Final Fantasy is one of the most prestigious, high quality franchises of all time. Recent events such as the release of Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIV and the repeated releases of Final Fantasy IV have impacted the brand name adversely, but it cannot be denied that Final Fantasy is one of the most important, more high quality franchises in the RPG genre. The series spans fourteen mainline games (till now), and a plethora of spin-offs that cover everything racing to mini-game compilations to music games to even strategy. Considering such a vast number of games, you’d think that most of them would be crap. However, you’d be wrong, considering that when Final Fantasy gets it right, it’s unsurpassable."

FF12 was the worst FF out there.

No FF13 is the worst. Linear maps, no towns etc. Worst FF ever. It has good graphics tho.

And I think FFX was too high on that list, FFIX was a much better game. And FFVIII is much better than Crisis Core or boring FFV.

NukaCola2715d ago

FFXIII was the second worse. FF Mystic Quest is by far the king of Fail

The Final Fantasy franchise has lost its greatness this gen. I believe that FFVS13 is the only game that can save Final Fantasy. All Square Enix has to do is keep it as a PS3 exclusive and actaully release the game!!!

FF12 is a great game and is undeserving of some of the hate it gets. Vast, open worlds, one of the best-written scripts in videogaming and a mature story where the politics of a fractured world take precedent over individual characters. I admit that the inclusion of Van and Panelo was unnecessary, but that was a side effect of Matsuno's departure from the project halfway through.

XII was "bad" because it had no central character. Or rather, the main focus was not on the person who should have been the central character.

Also in a game themed around air pirate and air ships - would have been nice to actually fly around in one! Not just have to walk every freaking where!

But other than that, world setting and combat were pretty nice.

The worst MAIN final fantasy for me is II (REAL numbering, not IV.) That game is boring and broken. Still a decent JRPG in the end, but my least favorite FF by far. Least favorites go

FF12 took the biggest risks and is the most unique of the series and that doesn't make it the worst. If you can get into it then it actually becomes a fun game.

FF13 is one of the weaker of the series, mostly in terms of core game play, but at the same time it isn't a horrible game and not the worst either.

ps1 FF games are all some of the best. This includes FF9 which is under rated and tactics.

FF10 is also near the top of the list.

Lol its funny. Theres been sooooo many final fantasys, you can make top 10 lists out of them.

Heck you could make a top 15 list because the franchise has dragged for so long.

disgaeapuchi2715d ago

Brilliant list, I was expecting to see Final Fantasy VII at the top, but I was glad VI got the top place. It's the better RPG, with far swifter pacing and hasn't aged as badly as VII has. It didn't make the RPG genre popular in the west like VII did, mind you, which is a shame.

RedDead2715d ago

Yeah good list...

I really really hope Xiii-2, Type 0 and Versus turn out well. My favorite series, simply because it has consistant quality. Except with FFXIII. Maybe that was my mistake though, I played 20 hours of it in 2 days, couldn't stand any more. I can usually play a large amount of time like that on FF's though.

That "Top Ten Pencils of all time" article, was better then this.
