Gamemoir’s Nick D. makes a case for Final Fantasy VII being the pinnacle of the series in this seventh segment of a 14 part feature “Every Final Fantasy is the Best Final Fantasy“.

I think 7 and 8 are my joined first then 9, 10 and 10 part 2 are pretty close to each other then 12 then maybe 6 and 5. I don't even rank 13 I don't feel it deserves the final fantasy name imo.

i also agree that FF7 was the best ..was the perfect balance between old FF/JRPGs and new art direction/plot themes . FF9 has also the same equilibrium but its art direction was awful (its phenomenal for a Japanese company to let such non inspired character design pass)

FF7 was the first fantasy game I ever played. I was 15 at the time I think. And I never played an rpg in my life but I could not stop playing it. The story, art direction, characters, battle system , while none of each part is perfect it was the best "overall" complete experience. Eventually I played Chrono, 8, 9, 10, Valkery, and to me, 7 was the best rpg experience. I think ten is my second favorite. FF6 I went back to play, was amazing and I place it third.

Final Fantasy VI is up there with it. Whenever top 3 games of all time come up I always say VI & VII as number one because they really have the most juice in terms of story, characters, worlds. I argue that VIII and even IX are still some of the best games made too honestly.

Best known. Best selling. But not the best game in the franchise.

When judging forms of art, it's important to remember that terms like "best" are subjective. Articles like this are clear click bait because it ignites the fuel inside of people who disagree (or agree) with this writer's opinion. But saying one Final Fantasy is the "best" is so vague, because what is it that we are specifically stating as being better than other Final Fantasies? The graphics? The story? The gameplay? Some people care about gameplay more than graphics, or story more than gameplay, so everyone's opinions vary. We should all just be happy that we all like the same franchise and accept the fact that different people think different iterations are "better" than others, when it's just their opinion, and means practically nothing.

Best story and characters too imo with a great gameplay system behind it. I've found it to be the best one that I've played, but that's because it ticked all the boxes for my personality. There is no best in the franchise because everyone disagrees with each other.

I have never really considered it the best, personally. I love it to death, don't get me wrong, and it has probably the single most memorable and iconic moment from any of the games, but even at the time of it's release I remember thinking that I still liked VI overall a bit more (man, that really dated me).

...but then I tend to think XII is one of the best of the series too, so a lot of people probably aren't on the same page as me.

I seriously need to play 6 again. I only did the very beginning.

Disagree with 12 big time I'm afraid. Hated it xD

MRMagoo1233010d ago

I hated 12 the first time I played it but I still have it now on ps2 and gave it another go not too long ago and really enjoyed it now that I'm a lot older.....I still find 7 and 8 to be better but 12 is worth giving another go imo. my only problem is I prefer turn based and 12 as we know (the same as the ff7 remake unfortunately) is action based.

Adrian_v013010d ago


12 isn't action based... it has an ATB system just like FF 7 had, giving you even options to adjust the battle speed and set the battle mode to wait, so enemy's won't attack while you scroll through menus. If you consider 7 turn based, then 12 is turn based too.
