Why does no one ever talk about Final Fantasy V?

I never played it so I am wondering why when someone talk about Final Fantasy they never mention 5?

Except for the combat system, it's not a very memorable game. There's no real story at all, and it ends up getting overshadowed by the two superior games that came before (IV) and after (VI) it.

I loved the job system in V. Never got very far after I lost the twins though... my attention span is poor.

FF1-6 would be like olddddd. Most gamers are neewwww. And most came to FF during the PS1 era which was FF7 the suppose best FF game of all time.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

Because everyone forgets the combat system, the villains, and the awesome overworld the game had. It was a generic FF story with generic FF characters, but I loved every bit of it. My favorite FF game.
