I've played 7-12 and I have to say FFVIII is my all time favorite. The story was great, cool characters, nice summons etc.

For the worst I'm gonna have to say a tie between FFIX and X-2. They just plain sucked. Props to X-2 for the costumes though.

I have to say VII is the worst, it's overrated. The graphics sure is awsome but I just don't like it.

Best is Final fantasy tactics, do I have to say more? =o

I haven't played as many Final Fantasies as the rest of you but my favourite is FFX. Great story, great graphics, one of if not the most memorable endings in video games, loved the battle system since enemies were well balanced etc. Although honourable mentions go out to FFVII for changing the face of RPGs back in 1997 (10 years ago, although now it's taken for granted, however I still didn't like FFVII :P), FFXII and Final Fantasy Tactics.

The worst Final Fantasy I've ever played would probably have to be FFIX, for the same reasons Panda said, it sucked!

Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy V / VI (can't decide the position between them)
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX

in that order, from best to worst. Haven't played X-2, XI doesn't count and I haven't even played it. The same with XII. I've tried I, II and IV but not that much to have any comment on them because what I've played 'em is few hours from the start.

I haven't really finished any FF games if I think about it. A bit of VII, VIII, VIX, X, X-2, XII, Tactics and Tactics Advanced. The only one out of all those I actually finished was X. I liked Tactics the most though. Thought it had the most engaging story. I thought most of the games were alright, cept for maybe X-2 and even XII (which was rather disappointing storywise).

I've only played FFX, FFX-2, and FFIII, so I can't really really say which is best and which is worst.

I absolutely loved FFX though... So... pwetty. FFX-2 was okay, didn't like the % complete stuff, though.

My favorites are FFVII and FFX. I don't really care what's overrated and what's underrated.

Least favorite is definitely XII, hands down. It's probably the only FF I really hate.

I've only played FFX, FFX-2, and FFIII.

I didn't dislike any of them, though FFIII doesn't have enough cutscenes. :/
FFX is easily the best of the three.

Best is Tactics for sure, FFX is right up there imo.

Worst is probably tied between FFVII (for reasons others have mentioned), and X-2. X-2 was pure fan service (and kinda fun, but... not a great game).

FFX has to have been my favourite so far (played VII, VIII, X, X-2 and XII)

I didn't really like X-2. It was fun, but not up to Final Fantasy standards.

Best for me would have to be FFX or FFXII. I liked how they went into a different perspective for the battle system although i missed having all the old summons.

Worst for me would have to be FFVIII. I just couldnt stand the whole draw magic crap.

FF VII, VIII, X, XII, and Tactics are by far the best.

FF IX, X-2, XI not so much.

Worst and overrated are two very different terms. Even if FFVII is overrated (which it probably is), it isn't the worst one. In my opinion, that title belongs to FFX-2. Thus far it's the only game in the series that I can't even force myself to sit through. The battle system isn't too bad, but it's utterly lacking in substance.

As for the best, I have a hard time deciding there. I'm very fond of FFVII, FFX and FFXII, for different reasons. I love the materia system and the atmosphere of FFVII, but FFX has a better limit break and summoning system and being able to swap characters mid-battle is great. But I prefer FFXII's story - it's just more real, I suppose, and I like that it varies from the typical RPG formula where an emo loner or a headstrong kid ends up having to save the world for some reason and falling in love with the female lead in the process. Its characters had more believable goals and such.

So they all have their good qualities, I guess. But if I did have to pick a favorite I think it'd be FFXII.

Worst FF8

I hated the Junction system and only having magic if i draw it..so after drawing magic, which i rarely did, i had to junction what little magic i had therefor never having any. so when i came to this mini boss that i could only hurt with magic, game over...and i pretty much stopped playing there.

Worst FF is V with IX close behind. Those two I ended up beating just for the sake of completion and never bothered picking them up again.

Best for me would be VII followed by VI.

final fantasy vi was my favorite...it was what got me hooked to the series...ff vii is close behind...

as for the worst, i have to say x-2 as well...it just felt like a rehash of ffx with yuna being a pop star...i also heard crystal chronicles was really bad, but i didn't bother getting that game so i dunno...

I gotta say the best is 7.

I didnt really care for tactics that much but I would have to say 12 is the worst so far. I havent beat it yet so my opinion might change.

I happen to like X-2.

And not just because Rikku was hott!

There were other reasons too!

Wait, what was that game even about?

My point exactly. It's not the most memorable FF.

Basically about Yuna finding Tidus while encountering clones of themselves from a past life who have issues yada yada blah blah.

i don't remember since it's been so long since i played ffx or ffx-2...i do remember that in order to get ffx-2's "super secret awesome ending" you had to get 100% completion in the game...i followed a strategy guide but at my end game, i only had like 99.7% complete or something...

i was so pissed...there was no way i was going to play through the entire game again to get the remaining .03% so i said screw it and downloaded the ending off the internet and watched it...never in my life had i felt so unsatisfied after finishing a game...

And I must say, I did enjoy the ending of FFX...A little tragedy never hurt anyone, eh?
But then they had to ruin it all in X2 .__.
The 100% ending made me sad ;__;

Thank god I knew about the 100% completion before. I bought a $2 used strategy guide (good condition!) and did every detail thus getting the real ending! I'm used to "mastering" games but I wouldn't do this one again. @_@

That's a good list except that FFVII should replace FFVIII. FFVIII's game system was a little weak.

Best: I - XII sans XI. I cant pick just one because they were all good to me except...

Worst: Tactics and Mystic Quest. Both sucked a big one.

Though besides VII the only other one Ive managed to beat is X-2.

Mystic Quest is really a Spin-Off of FF Series and targeted for USA gamers-only, it was released in japan as "Final Fantasy USA: Mystic Quest" >_>; I know creepy...

Mystic Quest in Europe is really Final Fantasy Adventures, so... FF:Mystic Quest = Mystic Quest Legend.

Not sure about best, but favorite would have to be FF6 and FF Tactics.

Worst for me would probably be FF X-2. If it weren't for the lingo/dialogue it might of been different.

I've played only VI , VII and VIII ;_;

I liked both VI and VII, thought I didn't manage to beat VI, but it was so cool playing it... well, while it lasted. VIII wasn't that bad either, so I can't really say that I have worst games in my life :P

I'm surprised no one's mentioned FF XI yet. I hate that one the most. ><

I may also add Super Mario 2 when released in Japan was called "Super Mario USA" but in Japan the title already was released as something else: Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic. I find it funny for companies to add USA to the title lol

Just for the record:
The gameboy "Final Fantasy Legends" series is actually the SaGa series.
And then the Mana series branched off from Final Fantasy Adventure.
Keep in mind if we talk about these.

For every game you love there's a dedicated group who doesn't.


My fav is X and VII. I cannot get into II very much.

My favourite has to be FFIX as it was really the first ever RPG I played, plus it has Vivi in it who is my favourite character in any of em.

Next favourite is Crystal Chronicles, which is the closest I've ever gotten to completing Final Fantasy, my Selke got so close, damn Rio-Maem...
