Just beated Final Fantasy 7 and its now my favorite RPG period! If not atleast my favorite Final Fantasy game.

Really? Those who fight further over those who fight? I'm surprised.
All in all the series has some incredible music, and I'd love to play more of the games.

The boring ass Bridge theme from V? Really? Not something sombering like To our Own Way from FF7, or the godlike Battle Theme A from FFII? (or anything from that game?) Heck, even Decisive Battle from FFV would have been better as that has more energy... Still, very interesting poll overall

Final Fantasy 10 huh? ...I remember playing that... never finished it though... got past the airship boss battle and just... stopped. Hard to recall being that it was so long ago, but I'd say I'm having a much more fun playing Final Fantasy 6 right now... villain isn't a dopey giant blob... weirdo who tries to force the girl marry him gives up and becomes helpful... skill progression is straight forward and easy to work with... yeah, I'd call it way better...

Final fantasy7 is my least favorite.. tried to play it 3 times.. just cant do it

Give me Forever Rachel from FFVI and Theme of Love from FFIV any day. I agree with "To Zanarkand" being in there though. Not my top favourite but a great one, no doubt.
