At Least One Person Believes Final Fantasy V is the Best Game in the Series

Kotaku - Finally Fantasy V is the best Final Fantasy of the main series, and here's why.

The job system is brilliantly designed: There is no "proper" way to do anything in the game (an issue so very common with other FFs). Any job combo is possible to beat the game with (and I mean ANY, check out the annual Four Jobs Fiesta, where 4 jobs are randomly rolled). Even unusual combos can prove highly effective (I was quite happy when I discovered the power of a Berserk Monk/Barehanded Berserker by accident, especially as it has a very low AP to set up).

The story is too old to be commented.

Obvious title is obvious.

It’s in my top five of the series. Great game.

I know most people would disagree with me but....

FFX was actually my favorite. I recognize 3,4,6, and 9 as the best in the series but I seriously just enjoyed FFX over the rest.

Just my opinion.

I regret not playing this yet. I still remember seeing screenshots of FFV for the first time on an old EGM magazine. I used to daydream about what it would be like to play FFV and wishing the game would somehow make it to the US, but that never happened until the distant future.

I played V when I was a kid. I enjoyed IV and VI both much, much more, but I did enjoy the job class system in V. There are two usual ways that FF does jobs, in that they either "declare" a character a certain class, or they allow you to choose. I personally think that when they declare my characters class I enjoy it more for the most part. As in IV Rydia is a summoner, Rosa a white mage, and Kain a Dragoon, plain and simple. I think that strengthens some of the writing and makes those characters much more impacting on the story.

I did like the legendary weapons in V though, probably my favorite part. And the bridge battle and Gilgamesh.

Also, the kid that spoils key plot elements for VI and VII in the source article is such a douche...
