Top 10 Best Final Fantasy Games

GP: "Final Fantasy is quite possibly the most well-known role-playing game series in video game history. The never ending tales of sorrow, redemption, and giant yellow birds have spanned just about every major video game system from Super Nintendo, to Playstation 1 through 3, and even the Game Boy. But what are the top games in the series?" (Culture, Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, PSP, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)

wow a unique top ten FF list!

about time people give some credit to FFVI
CanadianTurtle  +   987d ago
"About time?"

FF6 has always been getting praise since the day it released. lol

But to be completely honest, I feel as if this isn't a very good list as I have no clue how the heck FF 13 and FFx-2 got there.

Great list but I think FF7 deserves to be a bit more higher
Yangus  +   988d ago

And one best JRPG-Square-Enix-DQVIII-

i never understood ff12s popularity. Vaan is my most hated character in any ff game, and the gameplay was dull for me.
Besides that its a good list i think. Not my exact choices but not bad.

X-2 and XIII shouldn't even be on that list. But whatever.

I agree with the rest.
Eamon  +   987d ago
Not exactly the best list I've seen. Some shouldn't even be there like XIII.

And XII definitely does not deserve second place.
Chrono  +   987d ago
XII ruined the list. Also, where's FFV?

didn't like ff12 being top 2, as well as ff7 should be higher
JetP0619  +   987d ago
Not a bad list, but i wouldve placed FF8 and FF7 Higher. I myself wouldve ranked FF8 number 1.
VanillaBear  +   987d ago
Horriable list....

I mean I kind of liked FF X-2 but I would put it on a top ten list....

Oh and FF13 and it's just as terriable sequel....good god why man...why

"In many ways, Final Fantasy 13 is this generation’s Final Fantasy 8; it is either greeted with great love, or utter hatred"

No...

Don't say things like that, they are two completely differen't types of hate.

FF13's hate is because the game was actually horriable and a crap FF game where nothing in it was very....FF like

FF8s hate only comes from the fact that at the time, even though every FF game was supposed to tell a differen't story, people who loved FF7 were mad that FF8 wasn't a sequel to it. If FF8 came out before FF7 then FF8 would be the "best FF game ever"

I mean the negative points people bring up about FF8 can easily be explained away because people are just nitpicking the game to death. In my opinion I think FF8 does better things then FF7...character development, soundtrack, graphics, gameplay, story, so I really don't see why people would bring it down to FF13s level of hate.

Don't think I could pick 10 but my top five would of been

FF8
FF6
FF9
FF4
FF7

Find it funny how all comments that mention anything negative about the horriable FF13 and it's terriable sequel get diagreed to death.
HarvesterOSarow  +   987d ago
Most FF games in the last decade don't belong on this list. XII is the one most deserving of being in the top 10, but X-2, XIII, and XIII-2 should be banned from all further lists that put them in high regard. I understand what opinions are, but what I don't understand is, if a person actually played the old final fantasies (IX and older) how could you even enjoy such crappy new games? They do nothing but ruin the name of a franchise so beloved by millions. It's a disgrace. I've beaten all the FF's up until XIII and after 15 hours of disappointment, I can honestly say I will never play it again. That's a shame really...

WoW! this list is pure garbage and this retarded author write Aeris name likes this -> "Areith" wtf seriously.. r u mocking FFVII ? and FFXII at No2? get serious this games is horrible only FFXIII is worst, the guy who write this retarded list is clueless and obviously a big fat troll FFVII at No5? yeah right... make us the favor & go jump off a cliff.
HarvesterOSarow  +   987d ago
You realize Aeris' name is really Aerith correct? It's a translation issue, and no matter which name you use, you are referring to the same person. In fact, I think Professor Gast actually logs her in his research as Aerith, but when you name her it's Aeris.
Spacemagic  +   987d ago
Lol everyones crazy XII kicked ass...
TheUnbiasedLion  +   987d ago
Ff 8 purely cause it was first prose playthrough of an ff, yes the junction system was a little flawed but the story, characters, setting and the fact they tried to change things up was great.

Coming close was 9, playing it right now and it's fantastic still!

Then 6, 10, 3 and 7
JetP0619  +   986d ago
I agree on your thoughts about FF8. for me the order would be

FF8
FF7
FF9
FFX
FF6
Mikeyy  +   987d ago
Final fantasy 10 before 7,8, and 9???

10 was the worst. It started all this linear bs. And ill defenitly take 12 over 10, 10-2, 13, and 13-2 any day.

/ sigh at all these kids whose first FF was 10....
BitbyDeath  +   987d ago
Crap list, why is 8 so low?
13, 13-2 and 10-2 don't even deserve a mention.

Finally, somebody understands what made X-2 good. It wasn't supposed to be just like X. I was always intrigued to see how the world went on after being saved, to see the lives of the heroes of last time. Didn't bother me that it didn't play like X did: X was Tidus' story, X-2 was Yuna's. And not the Yuna we knew from X, but a Yuna that was trying to find her place in a world that was restructuring itself from the ground up.

I'm also impressed to see someone that, instead of following the whole "Square Enix sucks! Everything after FFX was crap. FFXIII and XIII-2 are garbage!" made up their own mind about the games and reached a different conclusion than most.

Overall nice article, if only for daring to have a fresh take on some of the franchise's most hated titles.

Not A Bad List IMO but FF 7 and 8 could have been a bit higher but everyone thinks different
