I only finished 7 and 9 and played around half of 8. But based off my impressions, I'd honestly say the set of Squall and Laguna is surprisingly the best FF protagonist, by a pretty wide margin too, though maybe I just need to replay 9 because Zidane was fucking awesome too. Least favorite was Cloud, though there are still neat things about him. This is also assuming that people like, Vivi, aren't really the main character, even if they are part of the main cast.
Edit: Feel like explaining why. Squall seems like a very believable person to me honestly, there are parts where he lets down his shield or when you sort of get a glimpse into why he is the way he is, and those are brilliant. I can't remember if you can skip it (think you can), but the part where he has to explain the nature of war to the old man near the stadium is just great stuff. Don't know if optional dialogue has ever stuck out like that to me before. Also, Laguna is a huge memelord and reminds me Frank West, which is always a positive in my book. Plus I love the chemistry with his soldier mates.
