    Final Fantasy Seven is my favourite... Great story (if a bit dim in the end). Sephiroth. And sometimes great combinations of visuality, music and dialog (few appereances by Sephiroth for example, and the dog - or whatever he was (Nanaki, was it?) - finding out the truth about his father, and Cloud and his fellows approaching the Shinra-building in the first part of the game, et cetera). Also, I think that Seven has the best music of all FFs. Wonderful... FF8 had its moments, and FF9 was IMO a bit better than the 8th. I like FF3's (FF6 in Japan) boss-music the best battle-music ever.

    Just a question, have all of you who are proclaiming the best actually played them all?

    The reason I ask is that IMO the best two are old. I believe they were 5 and 6 in Japan, but they were 2 and 3 in the US.

    #2 in the US, the tale of the Dark Night who becomes a Paladin, the tale of two arch enemies finding they're not so different. The FF in which you get three airships, one of which can go to the moon, a big screw, a hook, a hover craft. The FF in which you can go to the moon, or underground. This one was the best, hands down.

    #3 in the US was also quite good. The music, the characters. Its a very poignant tale about a girl and her identity. Sure, kefka was an annoying badguy, but that aside the story and gameplay are great.

    For both 2 and 3 I love the opening sequences. They both really get your blood stirring for what is to come.

    Of course, the graphics do not compare, but that doesn't matter to me. Don't be prejudiced against the older games because they have the misfortune of being older.

    Look at these newer games? Some earlier said it best, pansy leading men. Little kids, etc. I know some of you are little kids and so maybe you like that. I personally do not like to play as a shy teeny bopper. But if you want a truly good story about both internal and external struggle try 2 or 3. You wont be disappointed.


    Of the newer games 7 is the best, 8 in the worst, and 10 sucks too (no world map? come on).

    normally the first one you play is normally you're favourite. I rank ff7 and ff8 the top best equally, very closely followed by ff5 and ff6.

    I played FFVII first, but i reckon FFVIII comes in a better game, followed closely by FFVII. I didnt like X at all. I liked Kingdom Hearts too, just because of the huge range of FF charcters throughout the worlds (albeit younger), it was great!!

    ff x was the best game because of the sphere grid and the summons, those were cool. it was stupid that they took the sphere grid out of x-2

    FFVIII is the best in my opinion but thats because it was the first one I played and because unlike must people i think Squall is a quality character. FFX is my second favourite.

    My favorite FF gane would have to be Final Fantasy VII because the storyline was good graphics aren't the best but it did come out in '97 when playstation 1 was still pretty new. the music is pretty good but you can get that kind of music on a super nintendo. Control was pretty good. You can get alot of different materia and mix it with others to get positive and negative results. It it the first game to ever have you switch discs in play. there are a lot of mini games like snowboarding, chocobo racing, and even that motorcycle game. All in all it is the most revolutionary game of its kind and in my opinion is the best Final Fantasy Game yet.

    my favorite is ff tactics. the most mature ff game of the series. also it is one of the most in depth games i've ever played. from the artwork to the characters to the gameplay to the music to the storyline this game is a masterpiece. i regret the fact that square never made a proper sequel. i also enjoyed ff III and ff VII a lot. all three games are original and classics.

    If i were you I'd calm it down a bit. people here are expressing their opinions. you shouldn't get all offensive when the final fantasy game you like the most gets trashed about. don't worry about it. we all have our favorites and our not so favorites. so just just chill.
