Post your comments here.

Polls can have a maximum of ten choices, so if your favorite Final Fantasy is not listed, please talk about it below.

I was stuck between FF4 (for nostalgia value) and Final Fantasy Tactics (because of its wonderful tactical battles and vintage class system), but in the end, I voted for FFT.

From the impressive 3D terrain, the expertly animated characters, the gorgeous soundtrack, to the sheer volume of available game-play options, Final Fantasy Tactics is a masterpiece. FFT boasts tremendous replay value for an RPG with its 20 available occupations from which to choose, each with dozens of specialized techniques. The alarmingly cute characters belie the serious nature FFTís thoughtful, exciting plot -- treachery, social struggle, lost love, murder, and moral dilemma along the way.

Unfortunately, the English translation of the original Japanese script does its worst to deter you from FFTís story with poor grammar and the consistently awkward use of ďquotation marks,Ē but thankfully the story remained intact.

FFT transcends the standards of it's given title.

Even so, special mention must be given to VII (i don't care what all the nay-sayers whine about; it was great!!), 1 (just so... good!), and all the others i haven't beaten yet (basically II-VI, even tho i have ROMS of them all).

Word on the treet is FF:MQ should be avoided.

As for the others, i've tried to begin III, which so far i've been pleased with, but have had little motivation to continue. In so far as Squares epic SNES RPG's go, i've gone through at least half of Secret of Mana, which is a fine game, but have unfortunely been reluctant about starting FFV or VI, AND Chrono Trigger for that matter.

Wait... what was my point?

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest was made for beginners, which is why itís so horrible.

If you like Secret of Mana, try Seiken Densetsu 3 (the sequel) -- itís excellent.

I would rank the SNES FFs: FF4, FF6, FF5. Donít play US FF2; itís the kiddie version of FF4. Get a good translation of FF4 hard-type.

Chrono Trigger is my favorite RPG.

I enjoyed FF IV (that is the one with kefka and espers right?) Kefka was a good villian, his laugh was great. The whole story was an enjoyment to follow along. I also liked the first installment of the series on PS 1. That was a big hit at my school.

FF6 has Kefka and Espers. FF4ís villains are Golbez and later Zemus, and you have to protect the crystals.

The only one I can keep coming back to is 1. Ergo: I vote 1. I don't have anything against the other ones, they just don't "do it" for me, as most RPGs don't.

FFT. Because it captivated me from the beginning. Also, I love medieval times stuff with really funky names, and I also have an ass-pant fetish (well, not really.)

FFX and FF7 came really close though...

FF6 is my favorite, followed by FF1 for nostalgia, and FF5 for some really good music, but other then that I'm kind of "Meh." on the series. After 6 they began the whiny unwilling moody main character with a mysterious/damaging past thing. We've basically been playing 7 the past 4 games, I say. It just looks different. I haven't gotten very far in 7, so I'm not knocking it. It seems cool from what I've seen. And my previous sentence is more for the games after 7, since it was the prototype. 10 might be fun but Tidus and Blitzball ruin it. Oh, and the forced character progression disguised as malleability. Speaking of FFX, where's Cid?

I didn't like FF4 that much because Cecil starts out as a Dark Knight and you have to change him into a Paladin to progress the story. My thoughts are outlined in the lamest character thread. However, Wong is easily renamed Wang, not only being funny but fitting, and Cain kicks ass.

My Floating Island friend - How do you beat the dungeon where you can't wear metal armor in FF4? Leveling up and buying equ doesn't help at all, my guys still get their asses kicked. How I miss you, Dark Wave...

My Favorite FF will always be FF IX, just because you can play chocobo(chocopo?) hot and cold.

ohmy.gif Why have you ommitted FF2 and FF3 form the poll?

Can anyone explain to me what the original five were about?

Enhasa, check out the Chrono Trigger topic!
