List Rules Game must be part of the Final Fantasy series, regardless of console.

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy series of RPGs have been delighting gamers since the first one came out on the NES in 1987, but what are the best Final Fantasy games? To find out, gamers have ranked all Final Fantasy games in this list, which includes the main numbered releases and side games. It doesn’t matter if the game is on console, portable, and mobile games as long as it is a Final Fantasy game.

What makes a good Final Fantasy game? Is it the story, the characters, or the gameplay? The answer is that it is a combination of those three things and more. The best Final Fantasy games will have memorable characters such as Sephiroth and amazing settings, such as Zanarkand. Of course there are the great minigames as well, like Blitzball in Final Fantasy X or Triple Triad in Final Fantasy 8.

Though the Final Fantasy franchise has been around since 1987, sequels are still being made and the franchise will likely continue to thrive well into the future. And unlike many other long-lived video game franchises, Final Fantasy hasn’t gone down in quality with age. Whether you’re playing the newest Final Fantasy or a classic, you’re bound to have a good time.

If you're wondering, "What are the greatest Final Fantasy games?" or "What is the best Final Fantasy game of all time?" then this list should answer your questions.
