I have to go with X on this one. As much as I love the PS1 games, and as much as I enjoyed the casts of FF12 and FF15, FFX had the most memorable characters to me. That's in part due to it's story. The story structure is set that it makes the story so intense, to the point that the characters are always growing and developing throughout the story.

SPOILERS(FFX)
Wakka is a big example of this. He starts out as a very religious sports jock, but by the end of the game, he's devoted to saving Spira, without Yevon's teachings. Lulu is also like this. Lulu starts out as a highly restrictive and un-changing mother figure to Yuna, and she often put-down and mocked Wakka's theories about Chappu's return. But as the game continues, she becomes more open-minded, and she started to accept Tidus, regardless of his ridiculous claims of origin(Dream Zanarkand). Later in the game,
around Gagazet, Lulu witnesses Yuna's resolve and states that she can only watch as Yuna gets stronger and stronger. Lulu also grows a fondness for Tidus, who gives her much stimulation and energy by the end of the game. So yeah, both Lulu and Wakka are good examples of why I think FFX has the best cast.



So choose, which FF game had the best cast?

VII, by a considerable margin. They're diverse, with their own separate yet interconnected motives, and even optional characters Vincent and Yuffie get their share of development. No cast before or since quite brings things together the way AVALANCHE does, IMO.

What do you think of IX's cast? In comparison to VII's?

Good, but not quite as good. I prefer Cloud as a protagonist (not to say I dislike Zidane by any means, and his relationship with Garnet is one of my favorite romances in any video game), Amarant annoys me half the time (he gets better, granted), and Quina, egad. Seemingly pointless to the story, the variable damage output is highly irritating, and has IMO the absolute worst method for learning Blue Magic in the series. Also, while I do like Vivi, I honestly cannot understand the hype surrounding him. (And I wish Beatrix was a full party member.)
