Which of the classics (1-6) do you recommend?

#1dillpickle69Posted 7/14/2013 10:37:13 PM
The only FF games I've played were VII and and Crisis Core, and before I play VIII and onwards, I want to play one of the classic games, so it doesn't feel as outdated as compared to if I played it later. But I know how FF games are known for their length, and I don't want to spend forever on one series, so I only plan on playing one classic FF before moving on.

TL;DR, which old school FF do you most strongly recommend?

Final Fantasy IV is the best in the series

You should try Tactics as well.

Either IV or V.

I would recommend VI, but you're concerned about length, and that game's pre-final-boss preparation demands a LOT of grinding.

Story? VI

Gameplay? V (The job system is so much fun)

Most iconic FF feel? IV

They're all gems. These games are the reason why the franchise is so popular today. 1 is short and if you play the iOS/droid version you can beat it in a handful of hours. 2 is not so great. 3 (the DS version) is pretty solid overall, but V does everything it does way better.

Just do IV, V, then VI. Totally worth every minute played.

Also on a side note, you guys think I can emulate these games on my phone, or are they too fast paced for me to use the crappy touch screen properly?
