Final Fantasy 16 Series Rating

Final Fantasy 16 is less than a couple of weeks old at the time of writing this article, but it already seems to be highly rated amongst fans of the franchise. Regular readers may already know that we have a Best Final Fantasy Games list here on the site, which ranks every PlayStation Final Fantasy title based on user votes. From stone cold classics like Final Fantasy 7 to stinkers like Dirge of Cerberus, the list is made up of 29 individual releases, and Final Fantasy 16 has already wrestled its way into the top ten.

More specifically, it's currently ranked at number seven, based on hundreds of user ratings. It's got an average rating of 8.48 (out of 10), which places it just ahead of legendary strategy RPG Final Fantasy Tactics, and just below Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade.

For the sake of context, the current top five is made up of Final Fantasy 4 (8.71), Final Fantasy 9 (8.71 with more ratings than 4), Final Fantasy 10 (8.72), Final Fantasy 7 (8.96), and Final Fantasy 6 (9.44), in descending order. It's safe to say that 16 is surrounded by what many would consider to be all-timers.

Now, obviously, we're not saying that this is a definitive list and Final Fantasy 16 will be sitting pretty for years to come. The action RPG is still fresh, and longtime fans of Square Enix's franchise will be the first to tell you that the general consensus on many Final Fantasy games has changed quite drastically over the decades. It'll be very interesting to see how the latest instalment is viewed later down the line.

But as of right now, it's highly rated by what is a very hardcore gaming community here on Push Square. And of course, you can rate the series for yourself by heading to the Best Final Fantasy Games list and clicking the star icons.
