Final Fantasy 3 is TERRIBLY overrated, IMHO. The random battles are pitifully annoying, the pacing completely crumbles in the World of Ruin, and just power-leveling Ultima to your party completely erases any sort of difficulty the game might have had. It might have been groundbreaking for its time but it has not stood the test of time as well as Chrono Trigger or even Phantasy Star IV.GameBoi92
I LOVE Phantasy Star 4, but Final Fantasy 6 absolutely aged better than it. I mean, I'll even concede that Phantasy Star 4 had somewhat more interesting combat, but in terms of presentation and pacing, FF6 slaughters it and dances on its corpse. I agree that Chrono Trigger aged better tho.
