Not a lot of love for XII for some reason. Having just platinumed it I do not understand why people hold it in lower regard than VII, X, VII, and IX. In fact, I just went through and replayed VII, X, and XII on PS4, getting platinum on all three games, so they're all fresh in my mind and all outstanding.
My ranking is as follows:
1 - VI - Not only my favorite FF game, but favorite game of all time. Flawless aside from some glitches.
2-4 - VII, X, XII - All three hold a tie for me, each with one flaw. VII is the shit graphics, X is the lack of exploration/world map (it's a big deal), and XII's story isn't the best.
5-6 - VIII, IX - Love both of these, too. VIII was a bit too melodramatic for me and he combat system was too easy to manipulate. IX seemed simple and had boring characters.
7-8 - IV, V - I only just played these two for the first time a few years ago but fell in love with them both. Wonderful stories and characters, but very simple gameplay
9 - I - Simple but it's a true classic. Still engaging to this day.
10 - XV - Had some real problems with the story in the second half as well as some problems with the battle system being simplistic, but I still really enjoyed 80% of this.
11-12 - II, III - Never finished them. Didn't hold my attention. Not bad, just meh.
13 - XIII - Not only the lowest on this list but my single most hated game of all time. I can rant for days about the failure of this game, and I have. I just think it's not only a bad game but an insult to the concept of games and a black mark on this franchise; I hate it more every time someone ranks it anything more than last place. I do not understand how anyone can enjoy this dumpster fire of a game while bashing the outstanding XII.
Having just gone back and replayed VII, X, and XII to completion onPS4, I was seriously considering doing full reviews for them for fun, but I figure the blokes here might take ire with that.
I got it all, baby!
