  1. Surprised that X beat out VII, though I think those games are two of the best. Crisis Core would have gone higher for me as well, like Namie said. I wish I had the time to get into VI. That’s the one I never got to play a lot when I was younger. I think Tactics Advanced could have been higher I love that game.

  2. The only FF game I’ve played so far is FF3 DS. I thought it was pretty good, but I’m sure it’s also lower on the list considering they might be counting only the Famicom version (which I’ve heard is less than stellar).


    1. That’s easily the worst one besides the original and the second one. I think they’re only counting original releases, otherwise we’d see the PSP versions of I and II somewhere there, along FFIVDS.

      If you want to get into another entry, here’s a quick tip for the classic series (I-IV): even entries are story-focused with fixed classes, odd entries include the job system, similarly to III.

    Crystal Bearers ranked higher than the original Crystal Chronicles!? What bullshit is this!?

  4. I’m probably one of the few, but I love Crystal Chronicles to the point that I’d drop what I’m playing now and start. It took a while to figure out how to get the most out of the exploration, but it was different and fun.
