The best 16 bit Rpg ever, and one of the best games of all times. My favorite Final Fantasy. Incredible soundtrack too.



Probably my favourite SNES game ever, and the second or third best game in the series overall. The first true masterpiece in the series in my opinion.

Congratulations to my favorite Final Fantasy gameA Masterpiece with so many memorable moments. FFVI has my favorite cast of characters from any RPG and my favorite villain ever. I'd certainly buy a remake with Octopath Traveler's art style.



Congrats FFVI! One of the best in the series for sure, and of course the best villain.

IX is my favourite, but after that it gets more difficult rank them. I usually put VI either second or third, swapping places with X, but VII and VIII are very close as well. Honestly, I've never been able to definitively decide their order outside of IX being the best one. Still, I usually default to VI and X as the next two.

Probably my favourite in the series. Squeenix, give us a remake using the Octopath engine. Do it.



Well if were going on that debate, X/IV/VI are my fav FF games. Can't talk about IX cuz I haven't played it (I like the music though) and FFVII is in meh list with II. I is OK.
