The Greatest Final Fantasy
No, not your favorite Final Fantasy, I really mean, which do you believe is the very best in the Final Fantasy series? I'd have to give my vote to FF7. The graphics were top notch (at the time), the music was and is fantastic, and the storyline remains, in my opinion, unequaled. I mean, FF8 had something to do with some evil gardeners or something like that (yes, I am taking a cheap shot at SEED), and FF9 got crappy when you went to an alien planet. (Don't get me wrong, FF9 is still my favorite FF, but like I said, this is about the greatest FF) FF7, however, kept me enthralled and entertained from beginning to end.
As for gameplay, I thought both the materia system and the limit break system of FF7 were excellently done. Both the previous and future FFs always seemed to be lacking in this department, but maybe I just haven't found all the right nuances of them yet... As for the battles themselves, FF7 doesn't really have anything special over the others, but definitely isn't lacking either.
Well, yeah, I guess that's the reasoning behind my vote.
So, how about it? Any more votes for 7? Or do you have reason to believe another FF installment is the greatest?
