Been a fan of the series since 1991 but didnt get into the series until 2003 when I purchased my first Final Fantasy game(s) which were FFIX and FFX.
I played FFIV and FFVI on the SNES in the 1990s but didnt get to actually own it (was renting).
My most favorite Final Fantasy games (mainline series) include:
1. Final Fantasy VI (SNES-GBA) 2. Final Fantasy IX (PSX) 3. Final Fantasy VII (PSX) 4. Final Fantasy X (PS2) 5. Final Fantasy IV (SNES-GBA) 6. Final Fantasy XII (PS2) 7. Final Fantasy VIII (PSX) 8. Final Fantasy V (SNES-GBA) 9. Final Fantasy I (GBA-PSX-PSP) 10. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) 11. Final Fantasy III (NES-NDS) 12. Final Fantasy II (GBA-PSX-PSP)
Havent played FFXI or FFXIV cause their MMORPGs T.T
Spinoff wise my top favorites include:
1. Final Fantasy Tactics/War of the Lions (PSX-PSP) 2. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA) 3. Final Fantasy Legend III (GBC) 4. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (GCN) 5. Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (SNES) 6. Final Fantasy Adventure (GBC)
Still a few others I played didnt list them.
Spinoffs on Mainline series
1. Final Fantasy Dissidia/Dissidia 2 2. Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core 3. Final Fantasy X-2 4. Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings
Again missed a few yet to play them but do own them.
I've watched both movies (didnt like the Spirits one, but loved advent children).
[QUOTE="macintosh336"]which version is superior? is the translation in the GBA better enough to ignore the superior music of the SNES? Translation should be slightly better, the text is better looking imo, audio is a bit weaker than the SNES version due to the fact of the sound card on the GBA. Overall, the FF6 advance version includes a better translation on the menus and includes additional content such as four additional espers/summons: Leviathan, Cactaur, Gilgamesh and Diabolos. You also get two new dungeons not seen in the original game, few new spells, a bestiary and a music test.
