10- Favorite gameplay, characters, soundtrack, and story.
7- I know this is probably going to be in everyone's top 3 but I guess I'm mainstream ;)
1(Playstation 1)- Love this game, I especially love the feeling of reaching your tier 2 characters!

Lol Final Fantasy is a fail series.

1. FF6 (the best)
2. FF4
3. FF9 (my favorite)

Amano FFs for me. I despise the Nomura FFs. Well, except 10. That was OK.

I went through and counted every vote for an actual FF game (discounted FFL because it's really the SaGa series, discounted Crono series even though I love Trigger, but kept things like Mystic Quest - for real) where the voter listed at least three entries. For people who listed more than three, I only took the top three. I did not otherwise take into account any aspect of order, since some people may not have been listing in order of preference. I probably also miscounted, so consider these values to have a 2 margin of error (to pull a figure out of my rear end). Also, for one person they mentioned FF3 but I got the sense they meant FFVI, yet others apparently specifically meant FFIII (really?), so I only made one judgment call; everything else I took literally.

In order of popularity:

VI - 28
VII - 25
IX - 22
X - 19
VIII - 17
IV - 17
XII - 15
Tactics - 12
XIII - 7
V - 5
XIII2 - 4
XI - 4
III - 4
I - 4
X2 - 1
Crisis Core - 1
Mystic Quest - 1
II - 0

My thoughts:

I was gratified to see VI was definitively the favorite. It is definitely one of the very best. I was very surprised by how high IX was (I liked it, but I didn't love it, and I didn't realize so many others ranked it highly). I expected Tactics to rank slightly higher, but it did respectably in any case.

EDITED to include SandOnMyBoot's post (immediately preceding post, ninja'd this one).
