Best Final Fantasy game ever

Ranking the best Final Fantasy game ever isn’t easy because there are so many of them and they’re all good. There’s only one place to start and that’s with the original game for the NES that was released back in 1987.

Final Fantasy 1

Without this game role playing games would be very different nowadays. This is a game that defined the JRPG genre but it also borrowed a lot from predecessors. There are hints of Dragon Quest in the game but overall this first instalment was breathtakingly original. If you’d like to relive this game, you don’t need to find your NES in the loft. You can get a PSP port for the game or you can play this by purchasing “Final Fantasy Origins” for PS3.

Final Fantasy IX

This PlayStation game from 2000 is often overlooked but it’s a great game. This game was released towards the end of the PS1’s life so it was missed by a lot of gamers who had already moved on to the PS2. If you missed out on playing this one the first time around, you will missed out on a remarkable cast of characters and a very thought provoking storyline.

Final Fantasy VI

If you owned a Super Nintendo in 1994, you should have bought this instalment of the Final Fantasy series. In this game pinpointing the main character is hard which is a major strength but it’s the villains who steal the show. This game ranks as one of the best Final Fantasy games of all time and one of the best games ever released during the 16-bit era.

Final word

If you’re interested in getting your hands on these older versions of the Final Fantasy series, you’ll need to download them for your PS3 through the PSN store.
