Zelda and Final Fantasy are my two favorite series by far.  For a long time I would have put FF at #1, but due to recent entries by both series, I might have to give the slight edge to Zelda.  I mostly play them for different reasons though.  For me Final Fantasy games have great stories and turn based combat, while I really love the action + exploration + rpg elements of a good Zelda game.

I have a feeling, Dulfite, that we'd have pretty similar tastes in Final Fantasy games, but drastically different taste in Zelda games.  Here is how I'd rank the games that I've played

Final Fantasy

Fantastic
FF7
FF Tactics (awesome story and deserves to be part of main series)
FF9
FF10
FF12
FF11 (hard to rank since it's MMO)
FF6
FF4
FF10-2
FF1

Decent
FF13 
FF13-2
FF13 Lightning Returns
FF5
FF3
FF8 (great story, terrible gameplay)

Sucks
FF2

Zelda

Fantastic
Zelda 1
Breath of the Wild
Zelda 2
Link to the Past

Decent
Twilight Princess

Sucks
Wind Waker


If you are interested in Final Fantasy 1&2 I know they are available on both GBA and PSP.  FF1 is also available on the NES mini.  Personally I didn't like the GBA version (too easy?), but I've heard the PSP version is good.  I have played the NES mini and it is extremely faithful to original game play.  At any rate, Final Fantasy didn't really become story oriented until Final Fantasy 4 & 6.  (FF5 is not story oriented.)  I really like the game play of FF1, but it is very story light compared to what the series eventually turned into.

You know what I just remembered as I was reading your reply? I own a GameCube with that GB/GBA player on the bottom of it! I may go to a GameStop and see if I can find those original games so I can play them on my Gamecube haha. Or I could get the minis (isn't one of them on the SNES mini as well?).

NES mini has FF1.  SNES mini has FF6.  The GBA has several of the games though.  I think it has all of 1-6 except for 3.
