:) I like Final Fantasy XI, it's an online version. At first glance I didn't want to play it until I watched my friend play...then I got addicted to it and I'm playing it everyday now from morning until night.

My favourite is Final Fantasy 8, I don't know why but I just prefer playing it more than any of the others.

December 18th, 2004, 5:48 AM
Favourite is VII. But in a technical sense IX or X are probably the better games.

December 18th, 2004, 5:58 AM
Final Fantasy VII
The story, the characters, the graphics(at the time).

The whole Materia deal made sense to me, and played a great role in the story too.
And then there's that certain spoiler, that made you never want to quit until you had killed Sephy once and for all. Other twists like Cloud finding the truth about his past were great too.

Mini games like Chocobo Racing and the Arcade were fun. The Weapons were pretty hard(unless you used a certain materia set that I consider cheating xD).

In a technical sense I'd say...XI. But as for the game I just found the best...it'd be IX, I got it not really expecting much, but it really has become one of my favorite games. VII is a good game as well, though I didn't find it anywhere as good as IX, but thats just me.

Final Fantasy 3, cant wait for the DS version!

December 18th, 2004, 9:52 AM
X and VII are my favorite, about equals in my sense but I voted VII becuase I like the characters better plain and simple. Although the Aeons in FFX are pretty sick(Anima w00t!).

December 18th, 2004, 10:05 AM
My fav FF is FFX I dunno why I just like it a lot.

December 18th, 2004, 10:21 AM
I would say the best is...eh...Final Fantasy VI (though VII and IX are a very close second and third). Just...the storyline, the music - which, with some of it, I find it to be the most memorable out of the whole FF series - and the graphics, which were pretty darned good for an SNES game at that time. Though I do hate how linearity in that game literally just stops at one point, but...eh. Only a minor setback for me. :P

FF7. I've only played 4,5,6,7 and 8 so far though. I love FF7 as I think it's got the best story and characters. The graphics are also pretty good for when it came out.

December 18th, 2004, 1:41 PM
ive only played 7 8 and nine but i think 7 is far better than the rest

Obviously everyone's gonna say 7 or 10...

But 8 is by far my favorite one, prolly cause it was the first FF I played...ya

BOO ya!

FFVIII is unfairly criticised. Especially by the bitter, hardcore Final Fantasy fans on the internet. I think it's a great game, myself.

December 18th, 2004, 4:14 PM
i think FFX is the best game. I also like FFX-2 that's touching and i also like FF8 and form the snes era i like FFIII these are the best games in my view lol XD

December 18th, 2004, 11:53 PM
I saw the video clips for the cut scenes for FFX-2. :O The singing part with Yuna and that other girl is awesome. (The American version for once is better.) It actually had both of them and Shyuin showed up as well. I want to see more clips from FFX-2. But gameplay itself...it does not amaze me. What amazes me for FF is the battle system or cut scenes.

FFXI is almost similar to FF1 or FF2. FF7, 8, 9, 10 are a bit sort of like "two main characters will fall in love and we have awesome weapons that are bigger than ourselves" games? But they are all still cool! ^^; I've only played FFX for a bit so I'm not sure about the rest of the FF games. FFXI I've already been into for a month.

FFX-2's battle system is great if you ask me. A bit clumsy at times, what with monsters and party members constantly switching positions on the battlefield, but it's still quality.

December 19th, 2004, 1:16 PM
X-2 “Well..we’ve got the dark aeon sprites from the end of X…I…I guess we could reuse them and provide little backstory as to why….”

Of course I love all FFs, cause Square tells me to. They all have flaws of course, but 7 is my fav, 4 was my first.

Also X-2's system bugged me because it went from way too easy to MEGADEATHTONBERRYOFDOOM "R2 R2 R2 R2 R2"

December 19th, 2004, 1:32 PM
Ive played all except 7.So I say 10.

My favorite is FF7 be cause that was the first one I played and thats I became hooked on FF.I like FF9 to.

December 19th, 2004, 5:47 PM
Personally I'm offended that Final fantasy Crystal Chronicles isn't on the list. :\

Yeah, It's coming for the DS, so I would'a voted for the DS version, but I said X.

If CC on the DS had the summons (Aeons) from FFX, then I'd vote that with whatever I could!

(I'm just plain Addicted to Bahamut and Ifrit from X!)

December 19th, 2004, 5:53 PM
What about the summons form 7? Both of those are in 7 as well. :\

December 19th, 2004, 5:58 PM
I never played seven, so how would I know?

December 19th, 2004, 7:53 PM
CC was iffy, IMO. It was so poorly implemented. With 4 friends it can be kind of fun, but no space for packratting in a game that encourages it so, classes that aren’t very defined, no reason to really obtain the best equips, not much to do even in multi when you’ve finished…

Everyone knows that Final Fantasy VII is the best game ...possibly ever made... but atleast is the best game from the FF series. The characters, the story, the graphics (when it came out) and other important stuff! ('cause I know there's a lot more of important things). So FF7 is the best game from the FF series!!.

December 20th, 2004, 1:40 AM
Well I've played the majority of them (1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10-2) - My top five have to be :

(1) FF7 - The first FF game I ever played
(2) FF8 - My favorite overall
(3) FF9 - Like the storyline
(4) FFX-2 - Interesting storyline , replay value
(5) FFX - Interesting leveling system

My most favorite was Final Fantasy 7 turning point for Squares evolution of Graphics. For Ps1 they are
FF tactics
FF8 just the cutscenes maybe?

PS2 is
FFX1 and expansion
FFX-2 I liked the story of Shuyin and Lenne

FF Tactics Advance tho the judge cards made it bad

FF Mystic Quest
Bahamut Lagoon

hopefully ill also love FF12 when it comes out.

January 11th, 2005, 3:07 PM
My favorite would have to be Final Fantasy VII.

FFVII was the best in terms of concepts. It was the first Final Fantasy game where one of your characters died and didn't come back. That alone was very controversal and spawned the famous 'Aeris Sidequest' rumor, which today there are still people that believe it to be true, even moreso than some religions!

However, the game was ridiculously, horribly translated. There were lines of text that literally said the opposite of what they actually were trying to say in the original version of the game. It was so bad that because of it, many people didn't understand the ending.

Even Game Informer had no clue what the ending meant. They pretended to, but in reality, they had no freaking idea what they were talking about and hid that fact with references to different parts of the game, many of which weren't even in the game. I won't go into what the ending meant for the sake of avoiding spoilers, but let's say it has a very literal meaning. What you see is what happened.

Spoiler (kind of):

(They didn't die. It's all very literal in its meaning.)

Yeah, the translation is pretty dire in parts. One of the reasons why I maintain the game should be re-translated and released as part of the FFVII compilation.

FFVII was the best in terms of concepts. It was the first Final Fantasy game where one of your characters died and didn't come back.

Playble characters had died in the series before VII. It's just that they never envoked the same reaction as Aeries' death did.

[Spoilers if you haven't played the earlier games]

Final Fantasy II has numerous character deaths (Minwu/Mindu, Josef, Gareth/Ricard). Tellah is killed-off in FFIV, and in FFV Galuf bites the dust about 3/4 of the way through the game. That came as a big shock to me at least. :bandit:
