BEST: FINAL FANTASY X
WORST: FINAL FANTASY VII DIRGE OF CEREBRUS
Best: FF7 with the Beacause retranslation patch and my custom 7th Heaven Mod config + Crisis Core (not just the best FF, but the greatest piece of media ever created)
Worst: FF5. FF5 is offensively bad.
PS, FF2 is the most underrated FF. It's my favorite out of the OG FF's (1-5)
PSS, FF4 is the most overrated. It's great until you realize every "sacrifice" is complete bullshit, and they lose all their impact
Best - Final Fantasy VII, my favourite game of all time and its not even close.
Worst - Final Fantasy XIII - little exploration corridors every were, dull battle system terrible characters, boring and confusing plot.
They should have put the final fantasy badge on Lost Odyessy instead.
@Ant_17: I couldn't get into it. In all honesty I probably only played for about an hour then formulated an opinion. I own it so I'll play it again and beat it eventually. Imo it felt like some type of military simulator and not a Final Fantasy game. It just wasn't what I was expecting.
Tough call. For me 6, 7, 8, and 10 are all right up at the top of my Final Fantasy list. I’ll just go ahead and pick 6 as my favourite for this thread.
For least favourite I’d probably go with Final Fantasy Legend or Mystic Quest. Still enjoyed those anyway though but they are my least favourite FF games.
This is just my opinion but i prefer the 16bit rpgs. On psx things didnt get too out of hand, but for me the overly cinematic ones take away from the players imagination.
Id say my favorite one would be 9. It more resembles the art direction of the snes ones. I got deep into that one but some life stuff came up so i wasnt able to finish it.
@carljohnsoncj: Havent played Dirge, so cant comment on it, but I would take FFVI as best, and FF13 as worst.
As soon as they removed overworld airship exploration, they started to lose me. X was ok, 12 was ok (still need to play the zodiac version).
FFXV had some issues, but was a definite step in the right direction at least.
@baelnergal: what was the mess in 8?
The setting was a lot hit-or-miss on tone, the entire plot was a writing failure on multiple levels, the spellcasting system is an embarrassment to the concept... So, essentially, the entire game was the mess.
I have to pick more than one for each category.
Best ones: V, VI and XII.
Worst ones: VIII, X (yep) and XIII.
V and XII had the best systems for me, i love the customization you can do with it, all around though VI is probably the best.
VIII was just a mess, X has to be the most overrated game ive ever played, and not just overrated but a bad game in general, next to no exploration and the worst voice acting this side of OG Resident Evil.
XIII is so bad I don't even feel the need to justify it. But i will, it somehow manages to have as little exploration as X and then has the worst "battle system" ever made. With enough grinding i bet you could beat all battles in the game never pressing a button or direction other than the "x" button.
