Why is that? I keep seeing on the boards around gfaqs that FFVII is the best.. that doesn't sound so good for a series that has reached 2 sequels for the XIII.
To be honest your not going to get any Final Fantasy fans agreeing on what is the best one in the series.
I myself think FF9 is the best in the series with FF10 second, FF7 third with FF12 forth. I pretty much hate FF2 as it has the worst "level up" system know in the entire existence of everything. I like all the rest of them though FF8 might as well not have a magic and level up system in it considering how useless they are in it.
Current Playing: Front Mission 4 (I finally imported a USA PS2), Forza Motorsport, Wipeout Series and main Pokemon Series.
What FF is the best is usually a hot topic.. I like them all, except 2, which i am going to give another chance really soon. You definitely wont have enough time, unless maybe MAYBE you use guides and just blaze through the main stories...
I hope you also intend to play FFIV TAY, FFVII CC, and FFX-2 as well. X-2 gets a major negative response when mentioned around here.. and rightfully so in most cases.. but crap music and dumbass story (which gets pretty good in Ch3), FFX-2 HAS ONE OF THE BEST TURN BASED BATTLE SYSTEMS EVER. FFIV TAY can be skipped, but its really fun and has really hard optional bosses. If you like FF7 AT ALL... FF7CC is a must.. IMO the best sequel/prequel PERIOD to a FF game.
Notice i left out Dirge of Cerberus.
