Favorite Final Fantasy
Everybody knows about the Final Fantasy series, and a lot of gamers have played at least one of them, so let's talk about them! Or specifically, which one is your favorite and why. Also, don't feel limited by the numbered series; feel free to discuss any of the offshoot games, so long as they're "Final Fantasy" titles.
My favorite Final Fantasy game is Final Fantasy Tactics, the original one on the Playstation. I've put in a ton of hours over many years, and I can always pick it up and replay it. The story's great, the combat is great, and it's long enough and got enough stuff to do to keep you well-occupied for months and months.
Of course, Tactics is a strategy RPG, so it's a bit different from other Final Fantasy games. So, I'll say that FF5 is probably my favorite RPG FF game. I love the job system, even if it does require a lot of grinding, and the simplicity of the story is appealing in a retro way (as is the fact that it is a 2D game in a standard fantasy setting). It's just so much more fun to be able to customize your characters, to have a Ninja, a Samurai, a Monk, and a White Mage as your party, and to be training only those four people. It's not very fun to spend hours getting a Thief-character up to level 50, then get bored of him and switch him out with a Black Mage-character that's only level 25.

For the charming characters and humor mostly:
I liked FF9, but I seem to be one of the few people that didn't love it. That, or I talk to some very hardcore fans of it.
To be fair, it was the gameplay, or certain aspects of it, that made me not love the game. I remember enjoying most of the characters and the storyline, but the minigames weren't very fun and having a lot of stuff suddenly unavailable after disc three really pissed me off.
I think a part of it is the strategy guide, too. It is the single worst strategy guide in the history of video games. Instead of telling you about secrets, it just tells you to go to a website (which hasn't even been up for years and years). And though the guide doesn't affect the game itself, it's hard to not think of one when I think of the other, and the bad memory of the guide makes me think more poorly of the game.
I've been meaning to replay the entire game again, since I only did it one time, when I first got the game, but I've been saying I will for years and have never come close. I wonder if I ever will.
My favorites have to be ff4, ff5, and ff6. I never played the famous ff7, or anything beyond it (well with the exception of ff8 for a week) I like 4,5 and 6 because imo they are the highest quality of game play and story line. And theres just something about the graphics that completes me lol. Modern Final Fantasy games (most modern games really) seem to use graphics as a crutch, letting other aspects of the games fall to the way side. Hoping that people love it for the "eye popping" graphics, and that that distracts them from the fact that the story could have been written by a 12 year old; and that game play is so overly simplified or overly complex, that it ether puts you to sleep or makes you want to through something against a wall.
Anyway, back on topic, I like 6 the best, followed closely by 4 and then 5. I liked Terra so much I even spent an afternoon painting her (it was one of my first paintings so please dont judge me)
...and I cant find my art work, this is disappointing. :/

I don't really know anything about them - apart from a few of my friends played them. The people who play them seem to really love them though.

I'd actually put the demise of Final Fantasy down to the departure of Hironobu Sakaguchi, who was lead developer throughout until he left in 2004 and formed Mistwalker.
