Some people will say it's 7. Others swear by the pre-PlayStation era. Some misguided folk think roleplaying as Tidus qualifies as fun.
And with 15 out this week, the question arises once more. What is the best Final Fantasy game?
Having never thoroughly enjoyed FF8 and still all too happy to ignore the overtures of the chibi-fied FF9, FF7 is the benchmark for me.
I didn't grow up on the franchise, so I still have a healthy aversion to some of the plot-sized holes and how silly some of it all becomes. But you've got to respect the sheer scope and ambition, not just of FF7 but all of the games.
Except FF13. Terrible title. Possibly the worst in the franchise. But that's just me.
But what do you think? What's the best Final Fantasy game for your money - and, just for fun, what's the worst?
