My Final Fantasy Quest

face-miq03Back in December 2012 I started a quest to replay every single main-entry (and main-entry spin-off) game in the FINAL FANTASY series currently available in a legal physical form. Something I’m still working on. Basically I want to finish off every single entry before the release of FINAL FANTASY XV, which will happen at some point in the coming year(s). Here you can follow my progress and how my personal collection is growing/shrinking.

I’ve been a fan of FINAL FANTASY since the late 90s when I first got my hands on a US copy of the original FINAL FANTASY for the Nintendo Entertainment System. From there I eventually made my way through FFIII, FFIV, FFVI and finally the big one that was FFVII. At that point I had fallen in love with the series entirely and found myself wanting to experience all of the games.

Today I buy every new game in the series on launch day, almost exclusively with whatever collector’s edition they’re offering. That doesn’t mean I don’t hate some games in the series, when I played FFXIII I almost gave up on the series as a whole and if it hadn’t been for some great handheld games and finally FFXIV: A Realm Reborn I doubt I’d bother with still trying to do this playthrough. So yeah, here goes!

My Quest Progress

face-miq04As the list is updated, you’ll see what games I currently own, what I’ll play them on and eventually what I think of them having played through them again, or even for the first time. I intend on writing up a review for each game I play through to sum up my thoughts on how they hold up.

Some of these reviews will of course be of newer games (FFX|X-2 HD Remaster, LIGHTNING RETURNS: FFXIII etc.) and will as such end up on Boss Dungeon.

My FF Collection Checklist (Far From Finished)

My Final Fantasy Top List

face-miq01Below you’ll find my favourite to my least favourite FINAL FANTASY entry, with my platform of choice so far listed next to it. The list only counts the main entries and its direct sequels for now, and obviously omits games I’ve yet to play.

Please note that my opinion has changed quite a bit over the years and some games, such as FFX, I’ve not played since they first came out so the list is sure to change as I replay some games.

(Last Updated: January 4th 2014)

  1. FINAL FANTASY III (Famicom, 1990)
  2. FINAL FANTASY IX (PlayStation, 2000)
  3. FINAL FANTASY VII (PC, 1997/2012)
  4. FINAL FANTASY XII (PlayStation 2, 2006)
  5. FINAL FANTASY VI (SNES/Super Famicom, 1993)
  6. FINAL FANTASY IV (SNES/Super Famicom, 1991)
  7. FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (PC, 2013)
  8. FINAL FANTASY XII: Revenant Wings (Nintendo DS, 2007)
  9. FINAL FANTASY II (Game Boy Advance, 2004)
  10. FINAL FANTASY VIII (PC, 1998/2013)
  11. FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 (PlayStation 3, 2011)
  12. FINAL FANTASY XI: Online (PC, 2002-2013)
  13. LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII (PlayStation 3, 2012)
  14. FINAL FANTASY (NES/Famicom, 1987)
  15. FINAL FANTASY V (Super Famicom, 1992)
  16. FINAL FANTASY XIII (PlayStation 3, 2009)
  17. FINAL FANTASY X (PlayStation 2, 2001)
  18. FINAL FANTASY X-2 (PlayStation 2, 2003)

Yeah, sorry FFX fans. I really don’t get the appeal, but as I said, I have not played it since around 2001, maybe I’ll love it this time? I’m hoping I will, after all, FFXII which is now in the Top 5 used to be at the very bottom back in 2006, so you never know.
