Final Fantasy got its name because it was the assumed last effort of the ailing development studio Squaresoft. Not only did the game end up saving the company, but Final Fantasy as an IP has remained one of the biggest JRPG series until today.

The series has repeatedly tried to reinvent the wheel and itself, commonly with mixed results and receptions. Because the polls on this site only allow for up to 10 options, I've had to decide to put only the better entries as individual options while the lesser games are lumped together in "Other". Main series means all numbered titles, including the two MMORPGs, as well as direct sequels, so Final Fantasy X-2 and the two Final Fantasy XIII sequels are acceptable too.

Bonus question: What are your hopes and expectations for the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Around the Network

Only played through 7 and 8. So 7 would be my favorite so far.



Final Fantasy VI is my favorite game from the series (Characters,musci and gameplay are fantastic)
I have no expectations for Final Fantasy XVI



This is like asking a Mom to choose her favorite child



I don't think a main line final fantasy game will top FF XII for me, cos neither Matsuno nor Eito are working on the series anymore, It's followed closely by FF VIII (I couldn't find it so I had no problem voting for XII) and then FF IX



Around the Network

7, 9, 10, and 12 are godly. I'd say 12 with 7 a close second.



 

 

 

 

 

I will go with X in the poll, but VIII is definitely up there too.



VII by a pretty wide margin.
IX and X are also really great though.

Bonus: I don't really have high expectations for it, but I'd love to be proven wrong.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

My favourites are VI, VII and XII.

I expect that the fanbase will treat XVI unfairly and tear it to pieces, also that so-called experts will cry a lot about how this is not Final Fantasy anymore yada yada wah wah.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Why are shitty games like 12 & 15 options then?
