What is your favorite FF
It would only post 10

I vote for FF2 (US) because i thought it had the best story

FFnut 03-17-2005 08:50 AM

ARGH! Some of us may think that FF2j or even FF3j was the best! I don't understand why you're so set on using the US numbering system when almost nobody else uses it anymore. Even SE uses the japanese numbering system these days.

ShadowHeart 03-17-2005 01:08 PM

Yeah, using the old US numbering system is just a source of possible confusion. The games are called FF4 and FF6. I don't care that they were released in the US as FF2 and FF3, their real and original numbers are 4 and 6, they were the 4th and 6th games in the series. They've been re-released with these numbers in recent years too. I see absolutely no point whatsoever in calling them FF2 or FF3, even with the (US) tag at the end. It will just be confusing with different numbering on the same games, and honestly, adding the JAP and US tags at the end doesn't look good either.

Besides, to the rest of the world they are FF4 and FF6, nothing else, and even out of the americans, only very few call them FF2 and FF3 anymore.

As for the true FF2 and FF3 (for NES), FF2 is arguably the worst FF game ever, while FF3 is actually a lot of fun. You don't consider FF2 and FF3 part of the series? Or is it just the fact that you've never played them? Well, newsflash, a lot of people HAVE played them, and they HAVE been released here now officially. Leaving them out of a vote for the best game in the series is, no offense, stupid.

I'm not sure I can ever forgive Square for renaming the games the way they did, because the confusion about missing games in the series back then couldn't possibly have been any worse than what we have now instead. And the release of FF7 and on with the same title everywhere didn't present any problems, did it? *sigh*

Anyway.. I voted for FF7.

Why isnt 4 on the list???

Zynk 03-17-2005 06:08 PM

4 is on the list but is it the US version of so it is FF2 the poll would only let me put 10 items on the list so FF2(jap) and FF3(jap) did not make the list i can restart the poll if you like but I'll have to take out 2 of the 10 out I have up there now to put the other games in there.


ShadowHeart 03-17-2005 07:01 PM

See, Zynk, there's another reason to stop using the old US numbering. It confuses people, even if you do add the (US) tag at the end. I can't force you to do anything, but it would make it so much easier if everyone called the games FF4 and FF6. There can be no misunderstanding of what game you are actually talking about then.

IMO, Tactics isn't part of the real Final Fantasy series. Sure it's got it's name, but it's not numbered and it's so different in gameplay compared to the other titles, so it's standing out a little on it's own. And I wouldn't count X-2 either, as it's just a direct sequel to a previous title, not part of the real series. But that's just my opinion.

And you know, the american version of FF4 is a slightly simplified version of the japanese original. They made the game easier and took out a bunch of items and monsters in the american version, nowadays referred to as "easy-type" (and the japanese original is "hard-type"), because they thought the game would be too hard for the american audience.. or something like that. But I'm sure you knew that :)

Anyway, I guess you can keep the poll as it is. Unless someone demands to be able to vote on FF2 and FF3 (the NES games, I never use the old US numbering), then just keep it going.

Final Fantasy VI

Best game ever...

Shaggy 03-18-2005 02:51 AM

I liked 7 but 8 had the better graphics then most FF games. So I picked 8

Zerlina 03-26-2005 09:35 PM

FF9 because I love fairy tales a lot more than futuristic stories!

Gumdrop 03-28-2005 05:31 PM

I like ff7 the most ff9 is a close runner up (sorry ffnut :P).

FFnut 03-28-2005 07:02 PM

Bah. I just went to about eight different stores to find that prticular game - figure I'd give it another try as all the other FF games at this point are boring for me. Apparently nobody left in the contiguous United States sells the game anymore. Dammit.

Quezacotl 04-01-2005 05:46 PM

FF8 has always been my favourite. I thought the story was great, I liked the junction system and the battle system too even if it was a little easy, had good music, and I really liked Squall at the time so I could really follow the game.

X comes in a close second.

Little Valder 04-04-2005 03:41 AM

Hi all. New to the boards finding this very interesting. My vote has to goto FF 7 I just like how it was set up and the game play was awesome. On the whole numbering thing I agree. I admit I use to be one to call them FF2(US) and FF3(US) but that was before I new about the three before them. Now it is easier to just call them 4 and 6

Zardoz 04-28-2005 03:08 AM

FF8-slightly haunting

Spiff 05-01-2005 02:26 PM

The best three (IMO)


The big three

LoKuS 05-03-2005 06:38 PM

Why isnt 6 on the list?

ShadowHeart 05-03-2005 07:00 PM

It is. The topic creator called it FF3 (US), because that's what it was originally released as in the US even though hardly anyone calls it FF3 anymore.

LoKuS 05-03-2005 10:31 PM

Ah, i see.

alfaitha 05-05-2005 07:28 PM

Final Fantasy 8... The junction system allows you to control your character's attributes like no other... The charcters are pretty cool... They have sorceresses... And you don't have to buy armor, but instead, you use magic to upgrade your defenses, how can you argue... Plus the story was just crazy.

Arkacia 05-12-2005 07:22 PM

I've only played 7, 8 and 9 and out of them I'd have to say 7 is the best. Its the one that gets replayed the most often.

9 is good and I enjoyed the storyline as it was a bit different. The chocobo treasure hunting was fun.

8 bored me a bit and I had to force myself to finish it. The romantic twaddle ruined it in my opinion.

Shaggy 05-12-2005 08:29 PM

Hey Ark, good to see you here. :)

devilmog 06-08-2005 08:32 AM

But I like FFVI too.

Wezzy 06-08-2005 08:38 AM

i think either 1,7 or 10 is the best. 1 just kicks ass. 7 has the best storyline and 10 has a reasonbly good storyline and good graphics and i like the way you don't have to read the text :)

ShadowHeart 06-08-2005 11:29 AM

I agree, 1 does kick ass :D

Wezzy 06-08-2005 02:47 PM

Only i'm stuck...what do you do after Garland? i only just got it

ShadowHeart 06-08-2005 02:51 PM

You talk to the king, and he will have a bridge built so you can cross over the river and go on to the next town.

Wezzy 06-08-2005 02:54 PM

Yeah, i mean after that when you get the ship after defeating all the pirates?

ShadowHeart 06-08-2005 02:58 PM

You go southwest from the town where you get the ship. You can just follow the coast southward and then west until you get to a place where you can get off. You should see a new town when you get off there, it's the elf town :) You might want to fight a lot in the march lands to the east of that town (fighting ogres), to level up and get money to buy the very expensive silver swords (well worth it for your fighter/s).

Wezzy 06-08-2005 02:59 PM

Ok i've gone there now what? Do i have to wake the prince?
And when do i fight the dark elf that put him to sleep?

ShadowHeart 06-08-2005 03:05 PM

I'll make a new thread for this in the FF1 area.. we're getting off topic :)

obliviongirl 06-16-2005 08:06 PM

Re: What is your favorite FF
Oblivy says "YES!!!"

Who is Spam???

limit breaker 06-21-2005 01:42 PM

Re: What is your favorite FF
I voted for VIII, because the characters were so amazingly deep and I thought it easily had the best musical score of any FF game to date. The storyline wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. I loved the game.

obliviongirl 06-21-2005 02:21 PM

Re: What is your favorite FF
Yes the story was the FAR!!!! Great characters, great weapons, great areas, and great graphic's for the time period.....and overall just a very, very, very fun game!!!

Spiff 06-21-2005 05:26 PM

Re: What is your favorite FF
I'll agree on that. To me VI, VII, and VIII are the three best.

poosandwees 06-23-2005 02:16 AM

Re: What is your favorite FF
the best is by far ff7. 9 is bloody awful cos the characters, storyline and graphics are crap. 8 alright but i got sick of drawing all the magic. 10s awesome and 10-2's mission based system is poos. but even though 7's graphics are shocking it makes up for it with everything else.
don't even get me started on post 7 keep it short the 2-D graphics got the worst of me. but 7 all the way.

You do realize that post means after, right? :)

Zeromus_X 08-23-2005 11:03 PM

Re: What is your favorite FF
hmm...maybe its just because its the one im playing right now...but where is ff3? (not ff6) is it because youre only using the ones that came out in US? if so, then i guess i just answered my own question... :confused:
edited: well , after actually reading the first page of the thread, i understand :p

Lionheart250 08-25-2005 03:21 PM

Re: What is your favorite FF
FF7 has gotta be the best of all, because it has the best story and it has the best kind of animation, also they had the best summon in all the Final Fantasy, also then strongest.
FF7 has to be the best because they had the weapon startagies. With Ruby its better to kill your other partners so he doesnt use Quicksand, but he'll problably use it, but it wont effect.
Because it takes two partners away, not one. And just make your HP 7677 then use a potion and he'll use lucky seven, anyways atleast Lucky 7 is better than Omnislash. Then just use Knights of the Round Table and he just might be dead. And anyways, I watched a Japanese version of it where Barret had Mime and Counter on Every slot with his final weapon, and he used Ungarmax and then he used it 6 more times! And it also killed Emerald in 1 minute 18 seconds!!!!!!!!!!! Thats why I think FF7 is the best.

Like Shelpie's final limit, come'on man it kills any boss even the final boss, even Omega Weapon. And anyways, they said Squall's limit are the best, uh, Zell's and Selphie's are better.

DarkCloud 08-26-2005 11:09 AM

Re: What is your favorite FF
I believe the best three games is 7 8 and 9, absolute classics and will be remembered as that i think.
