I've only played III, IV, X and XV. X was really underwhelming for how its hyped up, though I can understand how important it must have been on release. The cinematics are still gorgeous. IV on the DS is still the best experience I have had with a Final Fantasy.

I hope XVI to be great. I like that they seem more focused on gameplay and story than graphics this time, its a good sign after XV.



Yeah I'm probably the only one but I love V the most. I'm not a fan of job systems but FFV made it really fun. I also love the FFs that don't take themselves too seriously so V fits the bill quite well. Looking back it's definitely not the best FF, but it's my favorite. In terms of an overall package I think FFVI is the best in the series.



My favorite tends to jump between FFIX, FFXII, and FFX. It's really hard to pick one because they all do things that i really like. ideally the best FF would be a combination of these games.

As for FFXVI i don't have high expectations for it. So far I'm just not seeing what i'd like to see when it comes to Final Fantasy but maybe i'll change my mind when they show more of the game.

Final Fantasy V is one of my favorite rpgs. The job system allow to play the game with diferent set ups every time, making this one of the most replayable Final Fantasy in the series ( FF XII Zodiac Age too, for the same reason)

FF VI is my favorite, but V has humor, adventure, a big world to explore and very flexible job system.

Sorry for my bad english.

Tactics on the ps1 is amazing. Often over looked.



Always FF VII for me. The others in particular order are VI, VIII, IX, XII and XIII.

Have only completed Final Fantasy VIII and XIII.
Needless to say 8 was my favourite. Triple triad could almost be a game in its own right, OST was God tier and junction system was underrated. The more realistic graphics with the story focus being on teen/young adult characters really appealed to me at the time. I suppose it helped that I was a teenager myself when I played it the first time.

As for XVI, I hope it is more like FF7 and 8. Hope that they allow you to overpower your characters with the right tactics. 

Also would prefer a more linear experience for the story portion of the game as well.

 

Kinda is. SE released Triple Triad Mobile back in 2015, on iOS and Android. But yeah its addictive and fun.

I remember the game fondly. However looking back, the story and cast isn't it strong suit nor is the draw/junction system mechanic. I mean drawing magic for hours on end to build stats/magic power isn't my idea of fun anymore lol. Still, the music was great and basic gameplay was all there. Idd about TT, that is still the best mini-game in any FF.

The option to speed up the game 3x in the remastered version helps make the drawing of spell a bit less tedious and gives the overall game a better flow but I still hate that you're making yourself weaker by casting magic and that in general magic sucks (Aura rules though!).



Signature goes here!

That's pretty cool. Takes some of the grindyness away.

Might have to give the Remaster a go at some point. I'm just hoping someone will make an Ai enhanced texture mod for that version.

Tactics is great but is it a main series Final Fantasy game? I always considered it a spinoff.
