Don't fight the messengers OK?
This list doesn't seem to have every mainline entry on it
There was no Metacritic when FFVII released yet its on this list.
There was when it was re-released on pc and ps4. Plus the article says it's modern FF games.
xiv arr = 86 for PS4.
Game's fantastic...I finally took the plunge about two weeks ago, and I literally can't put it down.
Yeah, it's a time sink, but definitely worthy. Heavensward is amazing and hoping storm blood follows suit next year
@shammgod...I'm loving every minute. I'm still very early into it. Tanking my first go round, Marauder level 25.
If you are on Odin server , give me a shout :)
@onenyte...unfortunately I'm on Sargatanas.
They're only counting the Metascore of that platform the game first arrived on
I don't think it represents quality, as it does the evolution of gamers and the internet. Notice how PSX and PS2 games are rated really high. Internet accessibility, and as such, ability to comment online, was rather low, or didn't peak that much interest. It was around the PS3 era that everything spiked and comments became heated. With the culture tending more towards critique with time and the nostalgia to "good ol'times," new games would be rated lower in the eyes of specific commenters, even though those games might present a better value than their predecessors. Please don't kill me for writing this >.<
That's exactly the case. No reason for anyone to kill anyone!
That's like the most "I don't want to kill you" comment ever. lol
For this series the psx and ps2 iterations were the best.
I always remember there being alot of discussion on the PSX generation of games via online forums and fansites (look at all the plot theories we have). The PSX generation was the height of the series popularity anyway, it was cheaper and faster to pump games out at that time. I think the AAA budgets for series like Final Fantasy cause it a variety of problems since development becomes more complicated. In my opinion FFX was the last good Final Fantasy, after that, each title seemed to have a major issue particular to that game.
FFIX is just so good! Originally i didn't care for it much, but it grew on me and the characters were amazing. The game is so charming, and to this day is a joy to play. Would love to see FF return to more of a "fantasy" game with future installments.
Really wanna play 9 again. It's been years and I never finished it. I'll get the collection they're bringing to ps4 next year (if the rumour is true) and play it then. It was a great game.
I wouldn't mind playing the PSX games again, I never finished 8 because one of the discs my friend lent me was busted (right near the last dungeon too). And I played the crap out of it until that point. I sunk alot of time into the games from 6 onwards.
FF14 was great, I probably logged 200+ hrs into that game, I hope the continue to support that game throughout the years.
Since when can you divide opinions to make a sum of all? First, all reviewers have a different view on the value of 1-10. Second, read the text. The number does more than often not reflect it. Third. Who gives a rat ass about reviews in the first place Kappa
FF9 is the goat,facts.
Final Fantasy 9 is my favorite, so glad to see it has the highest average score
FF9 is the GOAT
Now let's see how the 'user' metacritic of each main FF game is: FFVII: 9.2 FFIX: 8.9 FFX: 8.7 FFVIII: 8.6 FFXV: 7.8 FFXII: 7.6 FFXIII: 7.3 As we can see all the FF from VII to X have way above 8 & VII is the only one that have over 9, as for everything released after X the user score drop below 8 for the first time ever, is that a coincidence? no it's not, people keep on saying for the past many years now for over a decade that FF start to suck after X & that this was the last good FF released, SE can see all those things, what fans like or don't & what they do although they know all that? they westernize the series even more with each new installment to the point that doesn't even remind an FF anymore & alienate core fans to the point that they stop care anymore, yep that's the best direction they could go, as long they have the intention to kill the series, & it seems that this is what they are trying to do, & it works very well till now...
Yes, because user reviews are a great way to measure a game's quality.
To be fair, Final Fantasy can sell on brand name alone, but I do agree that quality decreases noticeably after FFX.
FFXIII was probably my favorite Final Fantasy to date, with FFXIII-2 a close second. my opinion anyways, i just loved the characters and their diverse personalities. Costume designs were amazing, i was a bit letdown at the main party's character and costume design of FFXV.
FFXIII:LR ruined the longstanding tradition of the last mainline Final Fantasy of a generation being the high note like FFIII, FFVI, FFIX, & FFXII before it
I loved LR more than the other two... does it count?
You're the exception. LR is the most divisive in the trilogy, with most saying that FFXIII-2 was the best
My favorite will always be Final Fantasy X, with a close 2nd being X-2. I absolutely love the HD Remaster pack for those two games on the PS4.
FFXI and FFXIV are tricky to review. They were ten times better a year after release. Completely different games.
And apparently so will FFXV be a different game in the months or even years to come
I get the feeling alot of people will be finished with the game by that point.
Not in the slightest. There will be plenty of new people experiencing the title for the first time in addition to people replaying through the game. This same principle applies to just about every Final Fantasy game.
I really don't think they should have been included in the list since they were online games despite being main numbered games.
Indeed. My experience with FFXI ended with the 2nd expansion. Same with FFXIV. I am not returning to either now
Yes, FFXIII made modern FF looks sucks because it is total fun-killer game, 2009 till 2013 FFXIII is the only FF we got and it explains alot. For nowadays, Type0 global release and FFXV is too good alongside with good pace of FFXIV. Just if FFXIII was delivered as FFXV the picture of SE and FF will be alot better now, that SE is whta good about, being so late.
I never like FF until FFXI but FFXII is my favorite.
Metacritic, when will people stop following it -_-
