Ranking of Fantasies (My Rankings of Every Final Fantasy Game That I Have Beat)

Ranking of Fantasies is my effort to systematically rank every single Final Fantasy game in the history of the world. After playing any game in the franchise I use hard science to determine its quality and how it compares to its peers.

This list is IRREFUTABLE FACT! There shall be NO DEBATES ON THIS LIST! You cannot argue against FACTS AND SCIENCE MY FRIENDS!

(In order to be ranked I must have played the game to completion)
