This is not Final Fantasy Tactics.

Posted by GrandHarrier

By best do you mean worst? Because it's really the worst. Try and defend Squall.

Posted by Icicle7x3

One of the worst RPGs of all time.

OF ALL TIME!

8? No.

I agree, Patrick <3 haters gon hate

Posted by Nasar7

Man those cutscenes were mind-blowing back in the day. They still look good, I think.

SPEAK THE TRUTH, PATRICK

Posted by Isomac

I got boxed PC copies of this and VII. I don't have DVD drive anymore so I might get this when the price drops or something. I remember it was pretty fun game overall.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Alright, Patrick is allowed to say that if he plays through Final Fantasy VIII again, draws Fire from random encounters for like 2 hours straight and then steamrolls through the rest of the game. Also there's some sort of love story and triple triad. I dunno.

Posted by PurplePartyRobot

I like that you can break the hell out of the systems in 8, but that in no way makes it the best Final Fantasy. According to the Internet at large, all Final Fantasies suck, soooooooooooooooooooo...

I hope everyone knows that IX fans are going to be banned.

Oh, look. Klepek has opinions and he uses his employer to signal boost them.

Not like anybody gets their news here, anyway.

Oh, now look what you've done.

Lets be honest here - Once Final Fantasy hit the PS1 it was garbage regardless of the number.

Posted by SoldierG654342

8 is a fascinatingly terrible game. I've never seen such a broken RPG combat system.

Posted by HeavyDuty32

Damn right it's the best.

Posted by aceflibble

Damn right it is. Been replaying it on my Vita this week. Ugfff it's so, so damn good.
Love the Salt Flats thumbnail, too. That are has the best theme.

VIII best FF for PS1???

Edited by Vince_Videogames

Goddamnit, that thumb nail when it was small looked just like it was from Final Fantasy 9 and I got super excited for a minute!! I really hope they can bring IX to steam someday!

It's the damn truth.

NOPE!

Give me Tactics or give me death.

Posted by Dale

This was the first FF game I played so I'm a bit nostalgic towards it.

Posted by iizcallum

VIII was my favourite one, mainly just for the card game.

Edited by NuDimon

@soldierg654342: Yeah it was too ambitious for it's own good. I still enjoyed the game tho.

Posted by deadmoscow

I'm on board with this. At the very least, no one can deny that FF8 had the best minigame in the series in Triple Triad.

Posted by George_McBain

I clicked on the link on my RSS saying "It better be IX, but they never ported that. Just VII and VIII ... So ..."

Posted by DevourerOfTime

Out of the three VIII is my favourite, but I have to say IX is a better game.

Edited by Hassun

I have spend hundreds of hours in FFVIII on PSX and PC but damn it @patrickklepek, it's not the best FF or PSX FF.

Also it seems that, just like with FFVII, they screwed up the music again. Which is truly sad because FFVIII's soundtrack is AMAZING.

Posted by kerikxi

NOPE

Posted by Vorsic

You mean worst?

Posted by SteadyingMeat

VIII was by far my least favorite of the PS1 FF's. Boring story coupled with an awful leveling system. Also, I dunno if this was announced a while ago or something, but this seems to have just come out of complete nowhere. I might pick it up if it's not a terrible version.

Posted by oldenglishC

Even the best PS1 Final Fantasy (For the record I think it's 9, since I'm not allowed to pick tactics.) is still like the sixth or seventh best PS1 rpg.

Grandia is #1!

Edited by Itwastuesday

no this is actually the worst one

by one i mean any video game, ever

Posted by Superfriend

Came for IX. Left because of VIII.

Yes.

Patrick has.. weird taste when it comes to his favorite FF or Zelda games :D

Posted by vitzera

Yeah Patrick, you're absolutely right.

THEM'S FIGHTIN WORDS ༼ ᕤºل͟º ༽ᕤ

Posted by Huey2k2

Best Final Fantasy on the PS1?

That's a joke right?

We all know that IX > VII > VIII.

Edited by Falx

So 8?
EDIT: And it actually was 8.

Posted by Capaneus

PTTTSCCH

VI bitches!

From best to worst.

VI - IX - VIII - X - IV - VII - V - III - XII - II - I - XIII

Edited by Rodiard

This isn't Final Fantasy VI...

IX 5eva

Posted by Itwastuesday

this is the game with the most wooden characters and nonsensical plot of the series, until FFXIII came out

Edited by SniperXan

Patrick, I just noticed a slight spilling error. You spelled "Worst" with a "be" instead of a "wor". A common mistake. I'm sure you simply overlooked this minor error.

Posted by I_Stay_Puft

goddamn there's like 14-15 year old teenagers who were born when this game came out. Just to put some perspective on how old you fuckin are.

Edited by JJWeatherman

Alright, guys. All of this arguing abut which Final Fantasy is "best(!)" is just kinda sad. The series is some hot Japanese garbage all of the way through, so just stop.
