Final Fantasy I, because without it we wouldn't have had any other games in the series, lol.

In all seriousness, my favorites are VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X. Choosing between them is really hard to do, but if I had to it would be VI. Just the fact that the entire world was destroyed, and everything changed. You had to find all your party members again, everything was new, monsters were much more deadly and Kefka had basically won. That blew my mind when I was younger.

FF VI on the SNES has the best epic story.
The story is absolute perfection on a grand epic scale.

Characters are fascinatingly interesting and believable.

I agree with you 100%

One's fantasy and imagination will fly with this game!

Bum Rush!

So many twists and turns.

Kefka is one of the best video game villains ever conceived.

Shadow and Interceptor...oh my goodness!

Brothers Edgar and Sabin? Goodness gracious great balls of fire!

Locke and Celes

Terra ...oh my word.

The music is one of the best FF soundtracks!

FFVI is by far the best. i believe imo, the only reason FFVII is praised as the "best" FF is because of the graphical leap from SNES to the PS1. as a kid i loved and played ever FF, but FFVII just was shiny graphics. and i waited years for that game, waiting for my subscription of the next GameFan mag to come in the mail with a spread of FFVII.

Final Fantasy 13 for the um best um. All poor jokes aside everyone will have their Final Fantasy game that they personally feel is the best.

FF7 for me. Mainly because it was my first JRPG that got me truly interested in the genre. Before FF7 I thought a game had to have shooting or be a sports title to be interesting. It's one of the few games that I can honestly say that has change me as gamer.

To me, there is no "best" Final Fantasy, that's the beauty of the series. Each fantasy is a unique experience, and I love all of them in their own way.

my favourite is ff7 crisis core on psp... and I'm gonna continue my dream of seeing an hd/remaster with trophies on current or even last gen consoles. but meh, SE wont quit being SE so I don't think its gonna happen

Final Fantasy IX for me. I loved everything about the game, the story, characters, music, setting, battle system. Just an all around masterpiece

Even the character design?

Sorry, but I draw the line at Kuja's man-thong.

It's a matter of opinion but for me it's Final Fantasy VIII

Great story, fantastic (yet different for a FF game) music, Squalls character development was awesome. Loved the worlds, the summons, the designs. Theme song was really nice aswell. Oh and the Garden Battle...imagine seeing that in HD <sigh> One day I suppose

It was just a good FF game. Such a shame people shit all over it...probably people following the crowd even though at the time it was mostly newer FF fans crying over the fact it wasn't a direct FFVII sequel.

When I was younger, I personally didn't like it because it changed up a lot of the FF formula I was so used to. No treasure chests, draw system, driving cars, using R1 for critical hits, the futuristic type design and style, etc.

Now that I'm older though, it's one of my favorites. I've gone back to that game so many times over the years and each time I seem to love it more.

8 for me as well. I liked the second story arc with Laguna.

Concertoine1451d ago

8's also my favorite. Triple Triad forever.

FF4 was what FF1-3 where striving for. FF6 was largely the best they could do with the 16bit format. FF7 was more a first of its kind in terms of what it did. FF9 was a return to form and told a decently competent story. And FF10 was again first of its gen in regards to mechanics, and had a story worth telling.

Asking for one example out of twenty years of a franchise is a bit much.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Its hard to dispute that final fantasy 4,6 and 7 are top 3 but in what order could be debated for a life time. 4 was so ahead of its time as far as story telling and world maps with all its secrets to find. 6 just took all that to another level. 7 was such a masterpiece of everything that came before it. 10 was great for its story and voice acting but I never got over them taking the ability to control the airship away from me and things just got too linear. 4 holds a special spot for me cause its the game that made me love RPGs and I love the story telling and just that medieval kind of world. Id do anything for square to do another game in that kind of world with that kind of combat for current gen.

FFVII and Tactic's are my favorite two, followed by IX.
