Final Fantasy VII, VIII, or IX; which do you think is the best?
I like VII the best, and it's still one of the best RPGs ever made.
I played VIII for about 4 hours, and I didn't like it at all. I started that game three different times over the years, and I still didn't like it each time I played it. In fact, I played it when it first came out, and that is the game that made me hate Final Fantasy until I played FFVII eight years later.
I'm currently playing FFIX, and I like it a lot. I'm still at the beginning, so only time will tell if it's better than VII

I'm with you grenworth, I couldn't stand FFVIII. I actually never finished it, although I'm pretty sure I was close to the end. FFVII stands up there to me as one of the best RPGs of all time. I never played FFIX so I can't say much, but I heard it was good.

FFVIII Spoiler alert

I think the moment I decided I hated the game is when they were all remembering that they all went to the same daycare. Such a ridiculous moment in an already ridiculous storyline.

I think Final Fantasy VII is the best RPG I have ever played, and one of the best games ever.

IX had such a terrible, terrible main character that I couldn't get into it. VIII I thought wasn't bad and tried something new. VII I can't really comment on due to the insane fanbase that has popped up around it. They've hyped it so much they drove me to never touch it again.

prob 7 just for nostalgia, but I liked them all for different reasons. I think IX was the worst--there were a few elements that didn't quite work and it had one of the more broken ATB systems I've used. Almost the whole game was spent waiting in battle, and I beat the game underleveled using only Auto-Regen to recover health due to the poor ATB counting (waaay too much regen.) 7's battle system just worked, plain and simple, and 8 did a lot of new things I really liked and the balance really hits its stride in the middle of disc 3 and carries on til endgame. They're all a ton of fon though, and I've played through 7 and 8 again upon PSN rerelease. I plan on doing the same for 9--we'll see if my opinion is still the same as ninth grade Swerd.
