I'll say IX, it has the charisma, the humour, the epic story, lots of references, I love its gameplay...

I started with FF7 (which got a sibling of mine very grumpy because I accidentally saved over his files).
Maybe because I started with FF7, I still find the scenes very magical. It was the first FF with drastic improvement in graphics, maybe that's why too.

I've played the earlier FFs as well, and watched cutscenes for later FFs (for some reason, I couldn't get immersed in the other FFs)....
Which FF do you think has the highest replay value? I know I've replayed some ><

8 or 10. Triple Triad/Blitzball for the win!

8 would probably be number 1 for me. Even though it pisses me off more than every other game I have ever played in my lifetime added together. Which happens to be a lot. Which reminds me that I still have to finish that one. Almost had it once, then I accidentally saved over my game and had to start over from the very begining. You can imagine how badly I was swearing after that (and I hardly ever swear)
Triple Triad is especially effective when it comes to making me lose my temper... Even though I love it.
X and X-2 would be tied for second. X-2 was the first one that I actually managed to beat. Even though few others seem to like it, it is still a favorite.
But then again, I have yet to play 7 & 13, which I hear are two of the best.

9 is a masterpiece, through and through. It's the best one in terms of story, gameplay, aesthetic, etc.

Final Fantasy IX is hands down my favorite Final Fantasy games I've ever played. From the character design, the story, the music; everything about FF9 is appealing to me. I've written a bit of short fanfiction about FF9 that I've considered making into doujinshi. (Check it out here, if you'd like: http://archiveofourown.org/users/Selwyn ... uary/works)

Sure, Rinoa was irritating at best, and I got kind of sick of hot-headed Zell, and Seifer really needed to cut it out with the chicken-wuss insults, but in hindsight, I think that means I probably had a pretty good understanding of how Squall felt through the whole game.
I still have a fondness for FF8, it's been so long since I've played it though. Perhaps one day I'll have to live stream a play through and see if I'm remembering it through nostalgia tinted glasses.

X has the best story.
VII most popular in the US/EU
IV better gameplay
but ff6 is my favorite.

FFVII was my first. I was extremely hyped and it didn't disappoint. Midgar had such an interesting and unique atmosphere. FFIX also has a special place in my heart (Vivi was awesome!), although I didn't really play it that much. Most of the time I watched my sister play it (the only RPG she ever got into).
But my favourite FF would be X. I loved the battle system, the story and all the emotions it made me feel!

I'll always be an FFX person. It's part nostalgia from watching my sister play when I was little, but it's also an interest that continued to grow when I got older and managed to play on my own. I enjoyed FFXIII-2 as well ;;

I like FF6 the best, I didn't really like the ones beyond that besides XII. 7 didn't hold my interest beyond Midgar, 8 was okay but I didn't like the Junctioning too much, 9's battles felt kinda slow to me, 10's story was horrible, never played 11, and 13 is...13. 14 was kinda fun but my guild sucked so I didn't ever have company when playing.

FFVIII was my favourite, I loved the characters and the backstory and the fact I couldn't finish the castle so I haven't actually finished the game haha. My favourite character was Seifer and I had a soft spot for Quistis, no idea why. I enjoyed just running around exploring, I over levelled alot in that game, level 15 to fight Ifrit haha.

I also enjoyed FF... 12 I think it was. It was different and I liked the characters.

I couldn't get into FF10 because I didn't like Tidus and Yuna, I loooooved Wakka though, favourite character hands down.

FF9 was my first FF and I have a soft spot for it. FF7 is the only one I've actually finished.

I didn't like FF13 because it was so linear, I really wanted to like it but it wasn't for me.

Final Fantasy IV, with VI close behind.

IV just had something really unique about all the characters, that I can't quite get behind. Cecil's journey from being a Dark Night to becoming a Paladin, Kain's struggle with jealousy and redemption, it was all really great.
