Ever wonder what the best Final Fantasy games are in existence? Ask that question and you’re bound to start a fight online and offline. Japan recently voiced out its favourite Final Fantasy games, and you won’t be shocked at the results.

Yahoo! Japan held a poll asking the nation’s favourite Final Fantasy game from a pool of 28,000+ applicants (via @aitaikimochi). Here it is; try not to act too shocked.

  1. Final Fantasy VII
  2. Final Fantasy VI
  3. Final Fantasy X
  4. Final Fantasy V
  5. Final Fantasy IV
  6. Final Fantasy XIV
  7. Final Fantasy IX
  8. Final Fantasy VIII
  9. Final Fantasy XI
  10. Final Fantasy III

The most important Final Fantasy came out on top, with the best Final Fantasy game at second place because these kinds of ranking lists are popularity contests to an extent. Still, second place is better than nothing; Final Fantasy XIII and XII are nowhere in sight in the top 10.

Final Fantasy X has its slew of great characters and story, as well as the hella expansive Sphere Grid levelling system and the way it showcased the power of the PS2 back in the day. As such, being in a top three on such a list is no slouch since part X is very influential and is considered a great entry point into the FF series.

The Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is out now for PC, iOS, and Android; you should go check that out since that’s clearly the best game of the lot. For the correct ranking of Final Fantasy games from actual experts in the JRPG field, head here.
