Default Favorite Final Fantasy game?

What is your all time favorite FF game?

Without a doubt, for me, it's FF7.

1: Characters. Not only did you get a whole cast of characters, but they were all very different and had their own personalities. Everyone has at least one character they identify with. Even though the graphics now look very poor, the depth of the characters made them popular and - even now - girls would say that Cloud or Sephiroth are cool guys and guys would say that Tifa is a cool girl. These toy-like characters really where the first great computer character pin-ups.

2: The Story. It's complicated. It's deep. There's even a love triangle. It mixed equal measures of romantic tension, conspiracy theory, action, pathos, comedy, good versus evil and good old Japanese new-age hokum and turned them all into a very satisfying mix. And perhaps it was so popular in the West because we were just getting to grips with anime from Japan and falling in love with it.

3: The Graphics. There were other 3D games about - there had been for a while - but nothing quite like FFVII. Once again, a whole bunch of game styles were thrown in to the mix. So we had RPG-style walking around and finding thigs; arcade-style battles (including very arcade-like music), puzzle games, sports games and even movie-type cut scenes to link all the pieces. And what about that part where you defend the castle? Totally arcade. Yet throughout it all - whenever possible - the graphics remained 3D. Afterwards, console/computer RPGs would never be the same. FFVII pushed the grapics bar several notches higher than anyone had thought possible.

4: The World. Previous Final Fantasy's had been set in big worlds, but FFVII was just huge. No other game had been so big. It was so big that you needed ships, a submarine and an airship to explore it all.

5: Length. If the world was huge, then the game itself was massive. It took a long time to complete FFVII, but it never outstayed it's welcome.

6: Fun Combat System. The combat system was easy to use but clever. The idea of adding materia to weapons and armour was inspired.


All these things mixed trogether are a recipe for a classic game. By today's standards, the graphics are dreadful, and the gameplay is awkward to say the least. But the whole experience is so good that you forgive the graphics and the awkward controls and movement even when you are cursing them. These are the reasons I believe that FFVII is the best Final Fantasy game.

FFX (not x-2 which sucked).

A bit too linear but the story and characters are simply amazing.

3/6 & it's not close for me at all. I even just recently played through it again & it's still awesome. I like the little secrets in the game, like turning the Cursed Shield into the Paladin Shield, or trying to get every Esper, getting Gogo, saving Shadow. Just a great game all around with a fun story. Getting every character to 9999 HP 999 MP with every spell, knowing Ultima, etc. Relic combos, like Gem Box/Economizer or Genji Glove/Offering. Just a great game all around.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Oh please, FF7 graphics look very unprofessional, even if it was developed around 95-97. Too blocky and flat.

Why is FF12 not getting some love? I know it sort of catered to the hardcore fans and ended the Final Fantasy boom, but it was still a superb game overall, especially the variety of sidequests.

Also, anyone here feels bothered than SquareEnix is pushing a Final Fantasy 13 trilogy?!
