Final Fantasy Forever
Happy April Fool's Day Folks!
On Saturday, April 1st, 2006, instead of posting a regular Saturday feature, the staff here at GameSpot decided to take advantage of the fortuitous timing and play a little April Fool's joke on you all.
Some of you fell for it, some of you didn't, and a LOT of people voted for their own favorite Final Fantasy, either playing along with our joke, or submitting their own serious entry.
So thank you all for being good sports, and giving us a little chuckle. We'll keep this around for posterity, but clearly label it as an April Fool's joke. And who knows, maybe we'll resurface the feature "for real" sometime soon?

Final Fantasy is one of those franchises that seems to get everyone excited. Throughout the last 20 years there have been a ton of Final Fantasy games released over a number of different systems, although admittedly none of them were ever really final. In the wake of the recent release of Final Fantasy XII in Japan and anticipation of its release over here, the GameSpot editors sat down and outlined their picks for the Top 10 Final Fantasy Games of All Time. It is truly amazing that a series is responsible for so many great games even worthy of an argument for a top 10, but arguments there were a-plenty.
The picks range from the obvious to the not-so-obvious and are in exact order from the 10th pick to the top pick. After reading through our choices, you can sound off on yours by either selecting one of the games from the drop-down box or writing in your own submission into the blank field. So what are you waiting for? Bust out your gunblade and your handkerchiefs and get ready for a sure-to-be-sappy nostalgiafest of the Top 10 Final Fantasy Games of All Time.
