I'm going with FF7 Remake Part 1. I've enjoyed other Final Fantasy games (10,12, even 15), but FF7 Remake got me really excited for the franchise again. Not only because I loved the original FF7, but it was actually really fun and engaging. Top notch gameplay, pacing was good for the most part (I liked how they handled side quests), characters and writing were great. Let's just say, I'm back to being a fan again. I'm even looking forward to FF16 (timed exclusive for PS5 😉). Ok, as for my ranking, here is what I'm going with:
- FF7 Remake
I put FF15 at the end because I played the game at release it was really short on story content. It felt like an incomplete game. Battle system was good, but gameplay was repetitive.
How about you, SW? What is the best Final Fantasy game since the PS1 era ended (post FF9)?
