I don't know if I'd put it first, but it's so dang different from the recent techie FFs that it's hard not to love.
Pronounced "Whup-pot". Say it. Use it.

Even with all the newer Final Fantasy games and odd Playstation 3 RPG games,

I still go back to and and play Final Fantasy IX over and over and still enjoy it

This is one of those games where you truly care about the characters.
Typically a lot of people would mention "Ico" as the prime example of that kind of video game, but FF9 has that power as well.

One of the best for sure but I'd put XII and XV above it, personally.

I have never played either of those games yet, lol.

All I know about FF12 is that it has a kickass version of "Final Fantasy Main Theme".

2nd best. VII is the best.

IX has the best OST and writing though.
FFVII = GOAT FFXIII = garbage

I would say that FF9 has the best overall soundtrack, however some of my absolute favourite compositions are from FF7.
I have actually played some of the orchestrated versions of "Cloud's Theme" and "Cid's Theme" for a few people who dislike video games (and told them that it's video game music, of course), and even they cannot deny that those compositions sound incredibly good and have very powerful melodies:

It's compositions like these ones that has made some people describe Nobuo Uematsu Uematsu as "the John Williams of video games".
And really, if someone can have their own compositions performed by a freaking orchestra (heck, even Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra here in Sweden have performed several of Uematsu's compositions) then they have succeeded.
