FF7. X and X-2 were pitiful excuses for games, let alone FF games. 1-5 I played not enough of, but did enjoy. 6 was jolly good fun too, along with 9. 8 was so-so on my scale, I didn't like the scale, leaving the X's at the bottom and 7 at the top.
Don't get me started on XII. No one even mention XII. Damn, I mentioned XII. *breath in* No character development, awful storyline, forgetable music, too easy *breath out* I liked VII, I've played it through so many times now... it just has everything. I really hope they decide to remake it for next-gen. VI comes a close second.

There's a reason I didn't talk about XII, purely because I talk about games I either thought warranted my money leaving me or I had been told that looked interesting. Unfortuneately, XII's FMV's were not powerful enough to sway me.
I actually liked FFXII. My personal reason is that I liked the way some of the side-quests actually merged in with the main gameplay eg. the Mark Hunts. The battle-style was imo the best one, since it was more dynamic and didn't involve switches to a separate screen.
Don't get me wrong I loved VII, and ca't wait for the PS3 version if it gets released.
Plus I still haven't acquired everything on XII which means I'm getting a lot of replay value.
I never really played them properly but i did play the one with clound in for a while but dont no witch one it is.
FFX, and X-2 by far, best story, character, gameplay combo.

You're kidding me right? The story in X (and thus X-2) was one of the most cliched pieces of un-imginative dribble I've ever come across in a computer game. Heck, I wasn't too much a fan of 8, but at least they didn't cop-out with the "it's a dream" thing, I mean come on, that has been done for years. X-2 just kinda followed on. "Well, is he a dream, or isn't he??" He's a dream. Bad story as it is, but don't kick yourself while you're dow...oh, too late. In fact, the only GOOD characters in X were Kimahri and Auron and they weren't played up as well as they could've been. The baddies were ludicrous and the only good part of the story was the discovery of the high council, which was quite decent, but the rest of it was pure and utter crap. And gameplay?! Gameplay was shocking moreso. The summon use was ingenius in X because it actually gave you a chance to get away from your bloody annoying characters but at the same time made the game far too easy. And the sphere-grid, again, very clever idea, but implemented poorly. Far too easy to get around it quickly and level your characters up to become so powerful so quickly. In fact, that was the main problem with both of them. Speed. Both were completely easy to complete (plus quests) and got you little into the game. When you can complete the final final boss (of X) in a matter of 2 hits (in 5 seconds) there is something wrong with the game because it should NOT be that easy. X and X-2; endorse the points that gamers can get ripped off with shoddy games. Zelda: A Link to the Past beats both these put together in gameplay. characters and story without a doubt. Heck, it's more difficult then the "walk along this route to complete the game". In short: X and X-2 were terrible games.
Cos I prefered the design and style of it to VII. VII is probably the better game. But VIII was for the best, the characters where complex, the world as a whole had a style, rather than random towns in random places, and it had triple triad.
Plus, I love design, and feel the style of it all looks ace. And Squall was my favourite FF main character.
The only thing I didn't like bout 8, and I did this when I had a copy of the game, was the way in which monsters levelled up as you did.
End result of this was I did a low-level game using junctions, and found it way too easy.
