What are the best Final Fantasy games? It's a tough question, and not one that we'd like to answer alone. That's why we asked you, the Push Square readers, to rate and rank an entire list of Final Fantasy games. This article is the result of your ratings, with 28 Final Fantasy titles, spanning every generation of PlayStation consoles, ranked from worst to best.
To be clear, this is not a final list. The ratings and rankings can and probably will change with time — and you can influence the whole thing by rating the games for yourself. All you need to do is click the star icon next to each entry, and select a score.
Still, as of right now, these are the best Final Fantasy games according to you lot. Hopefully you're happy with your choices!
26. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (PS4)
When Square Enix announced that it was making a new Dissidia game in collaboration with Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja, fans were understandably excited. And to fuel the flames of hype even further, Dissida NT was confirmed for a console release. It's so unfortunate, then, that NT failed to make any kind of lasting impact. Overcomplicated gameplay mechanics, an unbelievably convoluted user interface, and a noticeable lack of single-player content rendered NT undesirable for many — to the point where even a huge character roster couldn't save the experience. The very definition of a missed opportunity.
25. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition (PS4)
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was a bit of a cult classic back on the Nintendo GameCube. A co-op focused, brilliantly charming adventure that offered up memorable dungeons and cool boss encounters. It was remastered (and partially remade) for PS4 in 2020, but baffling design decisions held it back from realising its potential. A butchered online co-op experience removed part of what made the original so magical, and nothing was done to modernise the game's chunky combat system. The soundtrack is still amazing, though.
24. Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (PS2)
Generally regarded as one of Final Fantasy's biggest ever missteps, Dirge of Cerberus is a frankly deranged attempt at making a third-person shooter-RPG. It was released for the PS2 back when Square Enix was desperate to milk Final Fantasy VII for all it was worth, and charted the post-game adventures of of Vincent Valentine. Dreadful villains and a plot that barely resembles anything to do with Final Fantasy VII mean that Dirge will never be taken seriously by most fans — and that's without even mentioning the disastrous gameplay.
23. Final Fantasy II (PS1)
The first Final Fantasy had a very basic story — heroes of light, crystals, yadda yadda — but its sequel, Final Fantasy II, tried to establish proper characters and political drama. In the storytelling department, it was a sign of what was to come for the series, but the experience as a whole was let down dramatically by convoluted gameplay systems. A traditional levelling system was replaced with action-based stat increases, making for party member growth that was both confusing and abusable. Final Fantasy II isn't a bad game, but it is the most forgotten entry in Square's mainline series.
22. Final Fantasy XI Online (PS2)
A game that would probably be rated a lot higher on a site that isn't PlayStation-only, Final Fantasy XI Online was an inspirational MMO. It was a limited release on PS2 (it didn't even launch in Europe), but those who did play it found a memorable world and charming characters. Obviously, Final Fantasy XIV would shrug XI aside in time, but there's no doubt that this old MMO holds a special place in the heart of some fans.
21. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
Final Fantasy XIII is easily one of the most divisive titles in series history, and so it only makes sense that its two sequels divide opinion even further. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII was another seemingly desperate attempt by Square Enix to transform XIII protagonist Lightning into a household name. The game itself isn't bad — it's got an interesting battle system and a relatively unique limited time mechanic — but when it released in 2013, a lot of fans were already sick and tired of XIII's extremely convoluted storytelling, world, and characters.
20. Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3)
In a lot of ways, Final Fantasy XIII-2 addresses the most criticised parts of Final Fantasy XIII. It's got a more engaging battle system, and there's a much heavier emphasis on exploration. All told, XIII-2 is a pretty good game, but being bolted onto the divisive legacy of its predecessor meant that it was never going to be a fan favourite. A story that deals with time travel and alternate futures results in some seriously convoluted (and often confusing) plot points, while main characters Serah and Noel just aren't that interesting. Great soundtrack, though!
19. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4)
Final Fantasy Type-0 is a bit of a weird game. Its story follows a group of teenagers who are enrolled in a kind of military academy, and gameplay is structured around various combat missions. A whole class of playable characters — each with their own weapons and abilities — keeps combat feeling quite fresh, and there are some surprisingly interesting plot points scattered throughout the grind. While it's certainly not on par with the more popular titles on this list, Type-0 is a decent spinoff with some cool ideas.
18. Final Fantasy (PS1)
Ah, the game where it all began. By today's standards, the original Final Fantasy is incredibly basic, but this is the series' gameplay formula in its purest form. The classic ATB combat still holds up, the old school monster and boss designs are cool, and the game's straightforward structure is honestly quite refreshing. An eternally solid title.
17. Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy (PSP)
An enhanced and expanded version of the original Dissidia, the eye-rollingly named Dissidia 012 is basically the best Final Fantasy fighting game ever made, even though it isn't really a fighting game. Although some precariously balanced combat mechanics do dampen the fun, the joy that comes with battering your favourite Final Fantasy characters with your other favourite Final Fantasy characters is worth the learning curve. Still regarded by some fans as one of the series' best spinoffs, and so it's a bit of a shame that it was never remastered or ported to other systems.
16. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin (PS5)
Final Fantasy has had a lot of spinoff games over the years, but few are, er, stranger than Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. This action RPG, primarily developed by Nioh studio Team Ninja, proves to be one hell of a trip, telling an alternate timeline origin story for the first Final Fantasy. If that's not enough to draw your attention, know that player character Jack Garland is one of the most ridiculous leads in franchise history, repeatedly telling chatty NPCs to shut up while listening to nu metal and Frank Sinatra on his...smartphone? Bizarre doesn't even begin to describe this one.
15. World of Final Fantasy (PS4)
A strange but fun crossover adventure, World of Final Fantasy packs all kinds of character cameos and references into an RPG for all ages. Some of its mechanics are a bit wonky — literally stacking monsters on top of party members to buff their stats just feels wrong — but there's still a lot to like about this quirky title. Well, apart from that magical cat-squirrel thing that follows you around. Final Fantasy's most annoying mascot, and by some distance.
14. Final Fantasy III (PSP)
Like the original Final Fantasy, there's a straightforwardness to Final Fantasy III that makes it easy to play and enjoy. Crystals! Dungeons! Four heroes of light! This is an early instalment that's been remastered and remade numerous times, but it still holds up, and the experience is strengthened by an enjoyable job system that lets you customise the party to your liking.
13. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
Here it is, the Final Fantasy game that you either love or hate. Or, if you're like us, you think it's just kind of okay, but a bit misguided. Final Fantasy XIII represented a melodramatic new direction for the series, which didn't sit well with everyone. It also had a lot of corridors, and the combat system, while undeniably flashy, lacked any meaningful player agency until much later in the game. In hindsight, it was clearly a troubled project — delayed and internally overhauled god-knows how many times — but it's still a reasonably interesting experience if you can get around the frustrations.
Just a friendly reminder that these ratings were decided by readers, not staff. So please divert your hate towards the masses.
(No but seriously, try to be nice.)
I’ve only played VII on the switch, so… might be biased a little.
Good list, tho XIII-2 is 100% much better than XIII. I love both but the gap between them shouldn’t be so high.
EDIT: wow FF7, 7R, 9 and 10 all being ranked above 6? That’s a new one to me.
Final Fantasy XI was surely rated badly by a lot of people who haven’t played it? It’s dated for sure but anyone who’s played it for more than a few hours would 100% rate it higher than a 6 if only due to the time investment required meaning players who stuck with it clearly loved it. I know we have to trust that the voters have actually played the game in question for this to mean anything but that feels massively suspicious.
Well, no arguments with the top 5. Heck, you can swap the no. 1 and no. 2 spot and I'm still okay with it. IMO, Type-0 should have been higher than any of the XIII Trilogy, in fact, I'd dare say that it is what XIII should have been (if only it was still called Agito XIII and XV is still Versus XIII). Then again, this was a vote from the fans so I won't complain much
@ShogunRok Great work.....7 all the way 👍 to all who voted.....surprised Final Fantasy XII got 8th mind you it did come out at the end of the PS2 era.
One thing that does show is the disappointment of Final Fantasy XV
@darkswabber I also liked XIII-2 better than XIII. It had some really cool ideas, like adding monsters to your party.
What i took away most from this list is how criminally misleading the word 'Final' is 😆
Number 1 was never in doubt. A whole generation of gamers were made to cry by that game.
@nessisonett I feel like a lot of games in this list where given low scores by people that didn’t play them.
The 13 trilogy may not be top tier but everyone I ever heard that finished them either liked them or loved them, people hating on them usually didn’t even play them because “they’re bad”.
IMO several of the “bad and mediocre” ones should 100% be above 15.
@darkswabber Yeah, I’ve played the XIII trilogy and I do think they’re pants but they’re still better than FF II and several spin-offs. XIII-2 is genuinely decent and improves a lot on the first one so I’m surprised it’s that much lower here.
The top 5 is totally acceptable.
The best Final Fantasy game will always be Final fantasy VI
Great article! Thanks for participating everyone!
Can’t argue with 1st and 2nd place, although I could swap them around all day.
Remake coming in 3rd is a joke - not that it’s a bad game, just..no. 3rd could go to 10,8,6 or 5 I reckon.
I’d personally put Type—0 a lot higher too, I got that on PS4 for the (rubbish) FF15 demo and really enjoyed it. The combat system was lots of fun.
I’d give 13 another go if it came out as a trilogy box set. Fell off the first part half way through and had no interest in the sequels.
Can’t argue too much with that at all. Although I do wish they’d make a remake of 8 without the enemy scaling. Then I would place it higher.
@kyleforrester87 Yeah, Remake’s loved by a lot of people and has recency bias though. Irritated me no end but doesn’t surprise me it’s that high.
fishing game should be in the top ten, even though I haven't played it, it just should
The War Of The Lions was fantastic. I'm glad it made the top ten.
War of the Lions should be higher but great list and I agree with most of the placement! PushSquare readers know their FF's!
X is way too high on the list. At least Push Square's comment clarifies that it's garbage compared to the other games at the top.
For me its still a missed chance that they just didnt upgrade FF7 graphics and controls. FF7 is my favorite, FF8 close second, FF9 at third. FF Tactics was also fantastic. Crisis Core was great i just didnt like the gameplay great stort though. Dissidea on the PSP was fantastic my god did they butcher the PS4 release..... ☹️
I cannot believe the low rating 4 has. Just baffling. But with FF, it’s always a surprise where ratings end up because everyone feels differently about them all, so it’s fun to see how people feel anyway!
I sort of want to retry the XIII collection for some reason, but with the voice work turned all the way down.
WTF worst list I've ever seen because it's so random. None would normally put ffxiii higher than ffxiii2! Also, ffv a game considered one of the most hardcore in the fanbase is just 13? Then you have viii in 6. Can't say I didn't expect it though this is a franchise that divides opinion
im glad this series has different takes more often than not , the devisivness is way more amusing than companies repeating the same formula in every sequel like call of duty, also everyone knew the top 5 gonna have x , vii , vi and ix.
Yea pretty much the usual same old PS1 trio with 10 and 6 somewhere in the top 5 with them. Japan's rankings were a bit better with XIV deservedly in the top 5 even if they excluded XII from the top 10
@Judal27 i also think XIV is definitely top 5 , i think it being an mmo and much more time consuming makes it less appealing for the usual single player gamers.
This list is pretty accurate to my tastes. I would change a few around. Personally my one and two would be FF7 and FF7R but I’m highly biased and FFXII would also be higher for me.
I think FFXI and FFXIV are a little underrated also, especially 14, but probably because they aren’t as popular with the PlayStation audience and are more so on PC.
That said good list.
@ShogunRok which one is your pick for #1?
Surprised the MMO's aren't higher in the list due to their continuous updates, massive audiences and the ability to play coop with friends and family. 1 on the NES is my favorite. Back when games had huge manuals. Fold out map and on the other side was the monsters stats and pictures.
@Ultrasmiles I know a few of my friends don't want to touch it just for being an MMO so that's definitely a reason lol. Can't be helped I guess but it really is something special
Results are sensible imo. 6-10 was peak ff. First 5 games were good for their time but the five that followed were much better as far as I'm concerned. I do think X-2 gets a lot of hate when it's gameplay was quite good. I guess the story was a bit silly and maybe people hate the main cast as well. Also think 12 is quite good but the main character should have have been someone else. 14 gets very good but it just takes too long to get through the earlier (less stellar) levelling storylines.
7, 9, 10, 8, 4/6 is my top 5ish lol
FFX-2 is the worst. FFXII is the next worst.
If ranking do not start with those two, i.e. they're the worst, your list is already wrong.
@CthulhuFhtagn Either 7 or 9, I've never been able to choose!
The hate for Tama in World of Final Fantasy is warranted BUT only in the English version. The English translation and voice acting in that game is horrendous with bad attempts at capturing Japanese humour. Tama's strange way of speaking in English is just an invention of the team handing the English version.....such a terrible decision.
FF X-2 is in my top three but I understand that makes me a giant weirdo and I'm okay with that 🥲
@eltomo I am in the opposite mindset. It's story gets a lot of hate because people wanted a different story told than the one given.
The game play and job system however was fantastic and don't get the love they deserve.
Nice to see 9 so high, my personal favourite. Crisis core doing well is refreshing to see too, though I'm surprised that your summary didn't mention the ending, easily the most memorable part of the game.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is way too high. It’s a fine game but it’s way too flawed and carried by nostalgia to be great. Way too short a narrative to be so padded, little reason to engage with its best feature (the combat), the old story beats were well done, but almost everything added was insipid fan fiction, the “quests” were terrible, etc.
I had fun playing it, but there were a hundred ways I wished it was better, as opposed to titles like VI and Tactics which were sublime experiences.
Come at me, I’ll be hiding in a sewer. Not that one, the other one.
Your not the only weirdo. X-2 was actually my 1st FF I ever played believe or not and it's in my top 3 as well. 😁
I'm pretty shocked how high up the list it got honestly. I figured it would be at the bottom for sure but turns out it isn't as disliked as I thought.
I only rated the ones I've played obviously but for me it's
2. VII Remake
I will simply never, ever understand the love for VIII. I remember being so incredibly hyped for it after putting 120+ hours into VII, and just absolutely hating it. I slogged through that game for however long it took to get to the end, telling myself it has to get better eventually, got to Ultimecia and realized that was the end and just gave up.
Everything about that game is great, except for the main f'ing character. Squall is such a miserable, useless, utter waste of a character that could not give a sh*t about anything or anyone around him. After hate-playing that game for so long I finally realized that Squall doesn't care, so neither do I.
Regardless, and this is likely very much not a popular opinion, but the original FFVII (even though I love it) is a great game with a terrible narrative retroactively made better by Crisis Core being both the proper setup for VII's narrative and characters, and an infinitely better game.
Okay, I'm starting to question if y'all actually played half these games after looking at this list.
Thats the beauty of it though, outside of the 1-3 spots normally being locked in by the same games (usually it is VI instead of 7R though, thats odd), these lists are almost always different.
Nobody can agree on these games, and that's... kinda cool.
I guess I'm in a minority here in thinking the original VII is a bit overrated (VII Remake was much better imo), so a bit disappointed (though not terribly surprised) it ended up at the top of the list.
However, that disappointment pails in comparison to seeing Dissidia 012 rated so low (19th with a score of 6.57). Are people rating it without playing it? Or is there some reason people are rating it that low?
@darkswabber We're of a similar mind on this. FF6 is #1
Also heard 13-2 and LR: FF13 are much improved on FF13. Guessing not many played them after 13 disappointed... I didn't yet. But plan to.
Currently on a replay of all the ones on PS Now/Game Pass. Have to say I really enjoy the Boost system in the remasters. (speed, invincibility, etc.) As someone who maxed out the timer/levels on many of these first time round I just don't have the heart, or time, to do that again.
Thankfully these boosts speed things along massively. I got through FF7 in about 25-30 hours doing everything. You could mainline it in about half that. Far more manageable. Already done 7,8,9 and currently playing 12. (which I think might move up above FF8 when done, but currently)
MY TOP 10
3. FF Tactics <-- Don't sleep on it
As I get older XII becomes closer to #1. VIII is still my #1. VII is top 5. As for a proper ranking. Cannot think right now.
Final Fantasy X is higher than Final Fantasy VI. The inmates are running the asylum.
Hi there fellow gamers.
Interesting poll results, with the number 1 being the usual suspect I guess.
FFVII is good, but not that good, in my opinion. It´s just the most famous that´s all. But if people love, that´s great.
My list is quite diferent and I didn´t play all of them, so it goes something like this:
Didn´t play XI nor XIV because they are online games.
Also didn´t play any of the Dissidia games.
Weird list, but it´s mine 😉
Cheers, stay safe everyone and happy JRPG gaming to us all
@RaZieLDaNtE You didn't play 12? or is #2 a typo
@themightyant Hi there friend.
I did played FF XII, I kinda forgotten about it.
Shows how much I liked that game 😉
But I edited my list, so thanks for that.
And as for FF XIII, I actualy did enjoyed the game more than most.
Sure the story is not the best, nor are the characters.
But it has one of the most different battle systems and quite fun and challenging once you play in manual mode and it has my favourite OST in a FF game.
I said it was a strange list 😜
Cheers, stay safe and have a good one
I’m probably a little older than most of the readers at 64 the first final fantasy game just blew me away. It’s a game I enjoy on my mobile phone now. It will always be very nostalgic to me!
Oh well... one can pick the relative positions, but in general seems to be right. FF8 is probably the only one higher than it deserves, but given the crap that came after, i guess hindsight makes it better.
I'm somewhat satisfied.
@RaZieLDaNtE Nothing wrong with you’re list, I was just teasing!
You're right, the battle system in 13 was brilliant (really good in X-2 as well) I just didn't care for the characters, story, linear nature and a few other things that seemed missing. Still enjoyed it. All mainline Final Fantasies are good imo, we all just prefer some to others.
Just replaying FF12 right now, it's also a black sheep in the family that many don't like as much. The gambit (fighting) system isn't for everyone but I love it.
@themightyant I love FF XIII and XIII-2 battle system. At first i played in auto on PS3 and it was still fun.
But once I changed to manual on PC, it just became even better. My list kinda reflects my memories and feelings of said games and have more "nostalgia" for some than others.
Also, having different favourites it´s what makes this so interesting.
FF VI blew me away when I was a kid. My second FF game.
FF VIII entrance with the love story and CGI.
FF Tactics War of the Lion was so different and challenging.
Final Fantasy games will always be special to JRPG fans.
But maybe they should drop the "Final" in the tittle though 😜
Cheers, stay safe and all the best
@RaZieLDaNtE "having different favourites it´s what makes this so interesting." 100% It's really interesting learning which others like and why.
FFVI was also my second FF. But it was leaps and bounds above what ANY game i'd ever played before, and in some ways any game since. The scope was unprecedented.
From the large and diverse cast of ragtags that got together, but still had little animosities. Most characters felt unique both in how they looked, spoke and acted but also how the played in battle.
The story had everything from political intrigue, sibling rivalry, love, suicide, genocide and world annihilation.
The big moments like the Opera House felt cinematic in how they cut back and forth. And who can forget the music! Memorable tracks for every place visited and every character having their own earworm leitmotif. This was masterfully condensed into an epic 11 minute medley at the end of the game. (link below)
As the game said at the half way point (what a bombshell moment THAT was) "On that day, the world was changed forever..." so was mine.
@themightyant You are absolutely right on the money.
That´s why FF VI blew me away at the time.
I actualy replayed the game like six years ago on PS and man, does the game holds up in everything.
The Opera House was great because a certain character learns what it´s like to be human and to express emotions.
But the scenes in The phantom train with Cyan and a certain attempted suicide of a major character.......
You know the ones. Heartbreaking stuff.
Oh and the Final Boss Dancing Mad?
I don´t know what anyone says anout how good One Winged Angel is, because it is, But Dancing Mad?
That´s Nobuo Uematsus Masterpiece right there.
I don´t know how to put links in this coment, so I´ll do it the old fashioned way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbXVNKtmWnc
Also, I just have to put this comment I saw:
"Sephiroth: Final Fantasy's most Iconic villain.
He attempted to eradicate the entire world.
Kefka: Final Fantasy's most successful villain. He succeeded."
Always good to find another fan of this stuff.
Cheers, stay safe and all the best.
@RaZieLDaNtE Agree with everything you’ve said.
I’ve not heard that Kefka quote, accurate, brilliant and, channelling my inner Locke, stolen!
The things Nobuo Uematsu did with a 16 bit music chip were unbelievable. It sounded like a full orchestra and a choir. Dancing mad is absolutely a favourite.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane
One more share for you. I listen to this channel frequently as well as Kyle Landry and a few others. Perhaps you’ll enjoy as much as I do
@themightyant Right there with you friend.
Uematsu san did magic with the Snes chip.
"Thanks for the trip down memory lane" Your welcome 😉
Oh, I have checked that youtube channel you mentiones, and lo and behold, she did an amazing piece on Dacing Mad.
Thank you for sharing, apreciated.
Cheers, stay safe and happy gaming music to us all
@darkswabber Personally much preferred 13 to 13-2. Also, never played anything prior to 7 due to the 2d graphics and being tired of that in the jrpg genre, so I couldn't rank it based on that. I guess maybe that game should have seen a remake
How f***ing dare you put FF8 in anything less than top three. That game is a masterpiece.
FFVII and FFIX is where my heart is, but FFVI is easily the best in the series.
I am mad 8 wasn't higher... But I'm happy it wasn't lower. In my opinion 8 is superior to 9 (I tried to like 9, I really did, but it just bored me in the first 5 hours). I preferred 8 over 7 too, but 7 Remake is winning me over.
@Saitama117 8 is a fantastic game. It should go 10, 7 Remake then 8, with 8 being #1.
Stranger of Paradise straight in at number 9!
Can’t argue too much with that to be honest. Nicely done.
Final Fantasy 13 ❤️
@ShogunRok That’s because it’s secretly great, especially if you value gameplay over story and graphics.
More people here need to give XIV a shot. With the expansions included it’s easily the best FF game and it’s really not even close IMO.
I know there's not much news at the moment, but do these 'greatest [insert genre or series here]' articles really have to be dredged up quite so often?!
As a big fan of Lightning in the series it was a bit of a disappointment to see the series for XIII in the bottom half of the rankings, but I also know that everyone has their own opinion and is entitled to it. I’d personally put VII Remake(including the DLC) higher up than the original FFVII, but that’s just me. I wouldn’t even go so far as to say 28 of my rankings I’d just rank my top five.
5. Final Fantasy IV
4. Final Fantasy VII
3. Final Fantasy VII Remake
2. Final Fantasy Tactics
1. Final Fantasy XIII
I’m still shocked at the lack of love for FF IV!
@Scob they’re fun
Final fantasy 8 is a travesty
It should be way lower, like waaaay lower.
God does that game suck.
@LilianaQuinn83 13 especially the first one was really great i loved it. My favourite is X though.
I enjoyed all the 13 series though.
FF7R on Top 4 is the best/worst joke I've ever seen. Definitely one of the worst FFs imo
Stranger of Paradise cracked me up from start to finish. Honestly it was nice to play a Final Fantasy that didn't focus too much on the doom and gloom going on in the World.
The top 3 are my top 3. Nobody ever has those 3 as the top 3 in that order or at all. Nice!!!
Love XV, even though the annoying fanbase love to hate on it. X will always have a special place, for being the first and for having actual turn based gameplay rather than the inferior ATB. Seven on top where it very well deserves to be.
1. FF 8
2. FF 9
3. FF 10
4. FF 12
5. FF 3 NDS
6. FF 10-2
7. FF 4 NDS
8. FF 13
I don't care what anyone says, and I'd fight them to the death. FFX-2 is one of the best Final fantasy titles. People let their nostalgia of FFX ruin their chance to experience it for the fantastic game it is. Sure it has some fan service, but I still love it all the same.
@Ashkorsair That’s the worst haiku I’ve ever read.
My top 3 are FF8, FFXII and FFXIII. Done.
It's a shame that 7R placed so high, but I'll put that down to recency bias. I just don't think it should place anywhere near those absolute classics. Better than VI, VIII and XII? Please!
So good to see ff6 not getting jerked off like always! I think ff7 is much deserved.
Final Fantasy Tactics moving up in the ranks if I'm not mistaken. Good to see you godless heathens are developing some taste. I kid, but seriously this list started off pretty odd. Final Fantasy VII Remake rightly knocked down a peg after recency bias put it in at #3 initially. Good to see the list "normalizing".
Also, more people need to try FFXIV. Subscription cost scares some people off I reckon, but the base game is actually free and you get a free month to try it out. XI being so low is a result of people who didn't actually play it assigning a ranking to it. It wasn't as big on PS2 but is highly, highly respected in the PC community.
Thirdly, I've never seen so many people list XIII as their personal favorite as I have in these comments. I knew they existed, but I never actually saw them in the wild before. Like a mystical unicorn. Next they will be telling me Dirge of Cerberus is the best shooting/action game of all time. The Hope character from XIII makes my blood boil, and not in a good "this is a well written character" way. More like an "I'm not sure Japanese devs understand actual human emotions" way. Sasz was cool/relatable though.
Dissidia 012 snubbed here as well. I think this list could be re-named most popular FF games instead of "best".
Sad to see Tactics Advance (Game Boy Advance) and FF Tactics A2 (DS) omitted as they were really solid, standalone entries. Also a lot of other spinoffs that could be ranked such as FF XII Revenant Wings (awful), Crystal Defenders (awful), Mystic Quest (alright), and so many more like the FF Legends series on the original Gameboy. There's just a ton of these games!
These rankings are bonkers, and I love it.
@nessisonett I was suprised by the low score for XI as well. It's in my profile (I rated it a 9/10) and I loved it when I played it!
ff xii is so under rated. ff xv is easily one of the worst entires by most accounts and is too high on this list.
