The makers of that video have other great game-based raps too

So we're doing top 5 lists now? I guess I'll join in...
1. Final Fantasy 5 - best FF game all around, and possibly one of the best RPGs ever. I've had no complaints with it so far, and I've never enjoyed an RPG as much as this. The class-swapping is brilliant, the story is great, and I don't think there's a character I didn't like. The settings were pretty memorable and had a lot of secret stuff to explore for. It's just a fantastic game. Now if only legal copies weren't so f'ing expensive, I wouldn't have to pirate this game. Seriously, they better come out with FF5DS. Even if they make it as crappy as FF3DS and FF4DS, at the very least it'll drive down the price of the GBA version so I can actually buy it.
2. Final Fantasy 3 - Great game, and a wonderful, memorable anventure, especially considering the fact that it's an NES RPG. The gameplay was also well-tuned, although it was a bit too difficult at times. I loved how there were so many hidden items you could find everywhere you go, it really added an element of exploration that I felt was missing in some of the sequels
3. Final Fantasy 7 - pretty fun game. A game that that just tries to be cool and pulls it off pretty well, IMO. The variety in the gameplay really made this game. The characters were pretty memorable too
4. Final Fantasy 1 - great game for its age, it has a kind of old-school charm that is unexplainable, yet makes this game so much fun. Being able to choose who you bring on your adventure was brilliant, and shall always be missed in the later games
5. Final Fantasy 2: Anniversary Edition - Coming from the persective of the PSP remake, it's the only Even-numbered game hasn't been a disappointment so far, and the only true remake that I've liked so far. After all the improvements, I can say that it's a really fun game with a balanced difficulty and a great leveling system. The story and characters were pretty cool, too. Pretty good, for remake of an NES game
Also:Final Fantasy 4 - I really liked it the first time around, but after actually getting into RPGs, the game really came off as disappointing, especially compared to FF3 and 5. Still, I'd like to play it again and actually finish it. I might even get into it again next time
Final Fantasy X - My first Legally-purchased FF game. I really liked it at first, but it pewtered out towards the end of the game. The characters and settings were really unmemorable, the story was simply horrible, and the leveling system was the worst RPG leveling system until FFXII's bull$h!t. The worst part is I refuse to play the potentially-awesome sequel until I'm done with it, and I really don't want to play any more of it.)
Final Fantasy 6 Advance - Easily my least favorite of the "good" FFs. I'll admit, it is a good game all around, but the shear slowness of the battles pretty much kill it. Without the speed button on my emulator, I'd probably never be able to play it at all, but unfortunately the speed-button works so well, sometimes I don't even notice my guys are dying until it's too late. I'm not too far it, although it's becoming more and more tempting now that I've seen later parts of the game, but I really, really don't want to suffer through any more slow-@$$ battles. And Kefka's laugh was grainy and annoying.
Final Fantasy XII - I rented it and never really played much of it, but I didn't like what I saw. I might get it and try it again if I can get it cheap, but otherwise I'll just skip it. It just seems absolutely terrible!
Final Fantasy 8 - I have it, but I refuse to play it. I know it's gonna be f'ing terrible! I'm not even sure why I bothered getting it in the first place, but it was 'free', so I figured, 'what the heck'. I'll just replace it with the potentially-awesome Crisis Core, once I get the courage to remove its plastic wrapping
FF11 - I don't even consider it a Final Fantasy game. I'll just use FFX2 as a replacement.
and I don't have FF9, but I'm sure it'll be good. I might pick it up for Christmas or something.

FF7 was IMO amazing, sure its been called overrated, and many fans point to FF6 being better, but I never played 6, 7 was the first FF I played and found the whole thing just great, the characters, storyline, music etc etc, then I bought FF8 and was amazed all over again, though sadly not for the same reasons, the single most disappointing game I have ever played, worse cast of characters than a 3D Sonic game, with an awful storyline too, I hate FF8, love FF7 though.

1.Final Fantasy X2.Final Fantasy VII3.Final Fantasy IV DS(starting to like it now,though it is quite hard.)Yeah,I haven't played that many FF's but I'm looking forward to play V,VI and IX someday:)Also,I couldn't stand 20 minutes of FFX-2...And after watching "The Spoony One"s review of FFVIII,I can't believe how people actually like that game. The story and the characters is HORRIBLE!But I guess people say that about FFX too..
I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on hari-kiri rock!!! I NEED SCISSORS!!! 61!!!

I disagree with Kefka being lame, except in dissidia (curse you Nomura!!!). In the snes translation, he was incredibly evil and funny, plus the art of the final battle was reminiscent of the ascension: demon, crucifixion, pieta, angel. Plus, his laugh was the best
I don't know what character development people could expect from a fighting game.Kefka, considering the limitations of a story in a fighting game, is well represented, he is as evil as the original and as silly in the original (Yes he was silly as well, i remeber him being stepped by Magictech machines and jumping on a jail's toilet, he is an court mage, in other words an jester with magic powers, after all.), his plans of recontrolling Terra and destroying the world because of his prespective that life being limited (death) wasn't worth living were included as well.
I see some people dissing the character representation in Dissidia, especially the heroes, i played the game, and every character have the same doubts and flaws they had in the original games until they find crystals. After that they become as determinated and heroic as the people best know them. It's a fighting game i can't expect total representation with just 1/2 character from the respective game and most references are subtle, maybe to avoid spoilers, so people who don't know what an Wild Rose or a Chocobo Feather represent, they find it lame.It's basically a Fan-Service game and a fun rpgbased-fighting game, you really can't compare it to an story with various characters.

I played Final Fantasy Tactics on my PSP, and I didn't think it counted.
It counts. This thread refers to all Final Fantasies, including Meta-series games and spin-offs.
I'm sure I woulda listed a spin-off, but I haven't played any, except Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, which wasn't that good. I mean, it was alright, and I always use it as a warm-up before I play other strategy games(and I really need that warm-up, I suck horribly at strategizing), but I just don't like it that much. The Law system and having to get your skills from grinding while using mediocre weapons just kills it. I loved being able to just buy better equipment for my soldiers in other strategy games.

Just thought I'd mention that, thanks to the fortune cookie, I finally played Final Fantasy 8, and I have to say, I liked it a lot. I mean, it's certainly not one of my favorites, and I can see where some pitfalls could come from, but at the very least it was far more enjoyable than I expected it to be. I think I might actually be willing to give it a proper go, once I get Final Fantasy 9.

Thank you this. Seriously, I've watched this like 5 times already, and I can't get enough! Really makes me want to get off my bum and finally finish off Final Fantasy, especially since now I realize I actually wasn't as far as I thought I was.
Was I the only one who thought Garland was the final boss the first time they fought him?

Ive only played FFIV on DS and FF I & II & Tactics Advance on the GBA. I think the order goes as follows:1. FF IV- great story and characters2. FF I- you can choose your characters which is osm3. FF II- barely started it4. FF Tactics Advance- too long.

Favorite 2D: FFVI - Just all around greatness here top to bottom.
Favorite 3D: FFIX - I don't think any 3D Final Fantasy will ever be able to top this in my mind. It brought back what Final Fantasy was all about to me.
Favorite Non-Main: FF Tactics - One of the best strategy games I've ever played.
Worst: FFVIII - Just awful characters on top of an awful story. zzzzzzzzzzzz......
