Let’s break a Myth: Your first FF title being your favorite

1 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:07 ID: qtvk2f

I have noticed alot of people say every FF fans fav FF is their first one. Obviously, that cannot be true.

So let's put it to the test, what is your first FF and your favorite FF and see if they line up.

Mine doesn't for sure, with FF1 on NES being my first and my favorite being FF7/7R.

My first was FF1 which I love, but my favorite depending on my mood is 6, or 9. Or possibly 7.

It’s usually 6 though.

This person is in my head!

I’ve never played 6! I keep seeing here how much people love it. As soon as the pixel remaster comes out I’m buying it

Yeah not even close for me. I played IV, VI, AND VII before VIII, but VIII is my fave by a mile.

ID: hkmyyxb

I finally beat FFVIII last year after starting and stopping it for the last 20yrs. Was tired of it being the only main FF I hadn’t finished and ended up loving it. So good.

ID: hkn1und

Same with me! FF VIII just clicked with me in a way other FFs didn't.

7 was my first and its my joint favourite with 10.

Possible controversial opinion: Blitzball > Gold Saucer

ID: hknagz8

I agree completely. Never understood the hate on blitzball. Killer intro to FFX and recruiting players and leveling up your team was a ton of fun.

Either FFVII, VIII or IX was my first,... can't remember, got them around the same time. But FFX is my favorite.

ID: hkmqqcd

Same. VIII was my first, but X is the first one to captivate me. Nothing against VIII. Great game.

6 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:23 ID: hkm79cd

The only way I can possibly break it is if I'm in the mood of calling VIII my favorite I juggle between that and VII

7 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:52 ID: hkmbykb

My first was FF4. It's my second favorite.

My current favorite? Final Fantasy XIV. I played it originally by skipping everything trying to play it like an MMO. Replayed from the beginning around this time last year during a heavy depression and I haven't cried nearly as much playing any other title in the series than I have XIV.

The story is sooooo good. I’m about a quarter thru Shadowbringers right now.

ID: hkml2q7

Yeah I've been wanting to play it because it's FF but I'm also not crazy about MMORPGs. Would I still enjoy it and is it worth it to invest in it?

ID: hkmypyi

Is it really that good? I’m still in the middle of ARR and people keep telling me how great the story is but so far it’s felt pretty standard haha. No complaints though, I really enjoy it!

The original was my first, and it has a special place in my heart.

My favourite is Bartz and Greg's Excellent Adventure.

9 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:23 ID: hkm79xo

IX is my first and my favorite

ID: hkmfu77

My second, but also my favorite.

10 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:30 ID: hkm8ddb

First FF: The very first one on the NES.

Favorite: FFT: War of the Lions, and then FFVI.

ID: hkmc0d2

Tactics? Ah, a fellow man of culture, I see.

ID: hkmcga8

Same exact preferences, but I started with FFIV

11 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:50 ID: hkmbnww

First: X

Favourite: X-2

I don't know if this counts

Final Fantasy was my first. Got it for my dad on the NES never got very far in it, lost interest quickly. RPGs wouldn't really hook me until I played Super Mario RPG several years later. It quickly became an obsession, and a beloved genre.

Shortly after I played Final Fantasy VII. There was a time when I would have said it was my favorite, and it's still definitely up there. But now it's probably Final Fantasy IX. Though I love them both for two entirely different reasons, I honestly can't choose between them.

ID: hkmg0bx

What over time pushed IX up for you?

14 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:35 ID: hkm93f8

Crystal Chrinicles was my first, fav is FFXIV

15 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:59 ID: hkmd4og

7 was my first, but 8 is my favorite. 7 and 9 trade places between 2nd and 3rd for me. 12 and 15 round put my top 5 usually.

16 : Anonymous2021/11/14 19:20 ID: hkmgj4f

First VII

Favorite VIII

17 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:35 ID: hkm97za

First: FFI

Favorite: FFVIII (FFI tied, but VIII wins tie breaker)

7 was my first and my favorite.

19 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:16 ID: hkm64fu

My first is FF8 and it’s my second favorite. FF15 is my favorite one out of all I’ve played so far.

ID: hkm6aom

Nice someone who likes 15! It's my second fav.

20 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:18 ID: hkm6hpy

First played - VII Favorite - IX

21 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:37 ID: hkm9jq8

Mystic quest was my first so...yeah. Being my first I do have some nostalgic love for it but it is nowhere near the top. Favorite is a tie between XV and VI.

ID: hkmmkih

I’m happy to see xv get so much love in this thread. It’s not my favorite but it is up there.

First: IV

Favorite: XIII

ID: hkmkb26

Huge fan of the trilogy here but my favorite is XIII-2. You have great taste friend.

ID: hkmj8mn

A risky statement around these parts. I really liked XIII as well, and put it up in my personal top final fantasy games.

However I didn't like XIII-2 as much, hated the ending, and didn't like Lightning Returns even a little bit.

My headcanon is that XIII was the end of Lightnings story, and from that point everyone (>! except Fang and Vanille !<) lived happily ever after.

ID: hkmjkvb

Shout to XIII llI enjoyed it like crazy

23 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:13 ID: hkm5ldn

VI was my first, but IV is probably my favorite, followed very, very closely by XIV.

24 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:23 ID: hkm7893

First was FF1

Favorite is FF4

25 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:51 ID: hkmbtgq

VII was my first

X, XV, and FF tactics are my favorites.

XIV is my current drug.

26 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:52 ID: hkmbw2l

FF X my first

VIII my favorite

27 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:10 ID: hkm54xs

FF is definitely not my favourite... That spot once was occupied by IV, but I think with the in changes to XII in TZA, it would be my new favourite.

28 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:15 ID: hkm5wem

FFVII was my first FF but after playing most of them XIV is my Favorite overall with IX being my favorite RPG.

VII is still a close 2nd though.

29 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:31 ID: hkm8isl

First was X, favorite is probably either VII, XIV, or XV. Playing XII right now and it’s working its way up my list, though!

30 : Anonymous2021/11/14 18:47 ID: hkmb3h2
