I think VII was the best due to over all story. Graphically it definitely wasn't the best but it wasn't horrible. I also loved FF IV and FF VI, IV is what got me into rpgs and VI was my 2nd rpg back in the snes era. I also agree with Tactics being one of the best, the story was very well done and it was just fun to play too. I didn't care for VIII all that much, it just felt like it fell short in potential, they could have added a lot more too it and made it so much better. I didn't hate the game, but I was left feeling disappointed.
