Top Ten Worst Final Fantasy Games

The Top Ten
1 Final Fantasy XIV

This game was garbage, but it was remade into a Realm Reborn and that game is absolute gold. I would remove this as it technically no longer exists and reflects poorly on the remade masterpiece.

A real. Reborn was pretty good, but this is just awful. Broken controls, awful optimization, buggy, bland and overly difficult combat, it was just a mess.

When I vote for this one, I vote for all. There's WAY too many, and it gets confusing. But that's coming from a 9 year old :P

2 Final Fantasy XIII

The people who say that this is the worst Final Fantasy main series installment have yet to play Final Fantasy II (I mean the actual FF II, which is the NES one and not the SNES one, which is actually FF IV released in North America named FF II).

Someone explain to me why XII is here. That game is my all time favorite Final Fantasy. This game right here is just pure garbage. The combat is just mashing one button, the gameplay is just running in a straight line, most of the characters are like parodies of existing Final Fantasy characters and the story is just bottom line ridiculous.

When rating the final fantasy series, I consider it can be conveniently compared to that of a triangle. With final fantasy 1 at the bottom of one side, final fantasy 6 at the peak and final fantasy 13 at the bottom of the other side. Granted I would rate FF1 ahead of 13. Interestingly, this "Final Fantasy Triangular Rating System©" near accurately follows the growth of the company to peak, to ultimately the decline of the company. Also note, that after Final Fantasy 6, original Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi began to relinquish much creative control and the main creative also branched out to multiple-separate projects as opposed to the major collaboration of before. Towards FF13, Sakaguchi is now gone from Square Enix among quite a few of the original Squaresoft Final Fantasy creative team. With the "Final Fantasy Triangular Rating System©" in mind, one can assume the downward spiral will only get worse. With more dull, iterations of Final Fantasy to come. More boring storylines, lame characters, watered down western rpg imitated action. Only a original Final Fantasy Creative Team Reunion can save this franchise at this point.

3 Final Fantasy X-2

Quote: Charlie's Angels on crack. I don't remember where I read that, but it kinda fits the game.
Let's see... Characters? Meh. Yuna was better in FF-X, Rikku is... Meh, Paine is one-dimensional. Battle system? Fashion parade! When I got the first dressphere, I immediately thought of Sailor Moon, it seemed something made to show off their outfits, rather than focus on the plot or character development. Notable points: Yuna's boyfriend has a clone who thinks she's his girlfriend, even if they just look the same. The love story was bad, still better than Twilight, though, and what saved it was probably the fact that it was so bad that it was considered a parody.

1) Pokemon games have more stupid stories than this game.
2) FFX2 has good combat mechanics
3) The problem of this game is the pop style of charlie angels with sai! Or moon, with lots of parody things, with a half naked yuna,that in a FF game was bizarre and that's why is so hated.
4) The game has a lot of side quest and you is not so linear like FFXIII.

4 Final Fantasy II

Same here, the ORIGINAL FF2 was pretty sloppy. It moved the series forward in narrative howerever the leveling up system just fell flat and for me made grinding a pain. I also noticed 1 or 2 huge difficulty spikes. Also while there was a narrative, it still sucked, I personally would have liked to just play the game and not waste my time with a mediocure story.

I meant the ACTUAL FF2. Not the American 2 which is actually 4.
Same goes with 3, I meant the actual FF3, not American 3 which is actually 6. Sorry about that.
Stupid wrong images.
Still though, why mix up sequels like that?

5 Final Fantasy: All The Bravest

What bad thing can we say about this game that hasn't already been said? Don't be secuded by the $4 price tag. All you need to do is just constantly rub the screen up and down as if you were jerking off (the characters won't do anything other than attack), one hit will kill any member and you have to either exit the fight and grind some more, wait 3 minutes for every downed character, or pay to revive them all at once. Then there's the premium characters which cost $1/piece. There are 35 in all, but you can't choose which one. It's totally random so you'll probably end up paying the full $35 before you get the one you want. And there are the added levels which cost even more. Don't look at this as nothing more than a bottomless money pit.

How is this behind revenant wings? This is one of the worst games of all time. After this, a good final fantasy game just won't happen anymore.

I am CERTAIN if more people knew about this, it would be number one in a heartbeat. Even Mystic Quest and FF13 can't touch this thing. It is TRULY a pile of s#%&.

6 Final Fantasy XIII-2

This game is EXACTLY the same as Final Fantasy XI minus the story.. Seriously? At least X-2 was different.. The battle system and everything was different. That's how it should be. Plus Final Fantasy XI's battle system is boring as hell - you don't do anything other than auto attack or auto cast each turn.. Occasionally switching up your battle role strategies.

Also, the game is nearly completely linear - unlike all the good final fantasy games (IV, V, VI, VII, VI, IX)

7 Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings
8 Final Fantasy XII

This game really isn't that bad. In no way does it deserve to be hear.

This game started the fall of Final Fantasy.

Its horrible, I hate this game. I'm like with 70% complete, and I can't care about anyone in this game. the politic part is boring, they don't explain things very well. and the grind,. terrible characters, the story never get me. 2/10.

9 Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates

This game actually in my great opinion this game sucks!

10 Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest

HOW in tarnation is this better than final fantasy 7?!

This is way worst than all the others combined.

The Contenders
11 Final Fantasy Adventure
12 Final Fantasy III

I think somebody got the wrong picture. This is Final Fantasy VI, which is I in the US, and that game was amazing! The real FF I sucked.

13 Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles

Not a true Final Fantasy game. A disappointment so thorough and profound for poor gamecube owners who were waiting for a good RPG. An orphan that should have ben aborted.

14 Final Fantasy XI

Boring and frustrating, everything is so slow and confusing. The game controls terribly, and the graphics are dull and depressing, so it's difficult to feel happy playing. I really wanted to get into it, but I just can't. The more I played, the more angry I became. As an mmorpg, it is still able to become an addiction, if this was the pretty much the only one you tried. It's better than nothing. It would be insanely difficult to get into this game, unless you already got into it back in the day, having no other real option.

Dude Final Fantasy XI is the best in the series.

15 Final Fantasy VIII

Some of the worst plot elements, dumb characters, 30 seconds worth of monster summoning, and it's too hard to level up so if your stuck on a boss, your save file is worthless and must be terminated.

This Game have sex in it! All Final Fantasy Games have sex in it from 8-now!

Clichéd, porny, hilariously bad storyline, no character development and most pathetic love story ever! Final Fantasy VIII is a filthy excuse for a video game.

16 Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
17 Final Fantasy VII

It's incredibly boring, characters has absolutely no significant personality and many of them acts the same (especially in the movie), they're so inhuman they don't even know how to make expressions, the story is nothing special and it's also the most overrated game ever in history. I for one WONT buy or play the remake, it's like flushing money in the toilet. I'd rather spend that money on what is ACTUALLY amazing!

So overrated. And most of its fans are jerks.

I hate it 13 is the best I just hate cloud and tiffa and the whole game just shouldn't exist.

18 Final Fantasy X

Best game in the series for me and I have played em all, it's full of joy and sorrow. Absolute Masterpiece! Every minute in this game feelt so good and even in the end I wanted more...

What the hell these have some of my favorite final fantasy characters ever

This is amazing...

19 Final Fantasy IX

This is the best Final Fantasy ever.

20 Final Fantasy XV
21 Final Fantasy VI
22 Final Fantasy IV
23 Final Fantasy
24 Final Fantasy V

What the hell! Trash villain and story! XV is dark best!

25 Final Fantasy the 4 Heroes of Light

This game stinks for its one fatal flaw: No targeting. As AVGN says many times: What's the most important aspect about any game? Well, being able to play it! I cannot believe they gave this game the FF name - you cannot even control who you attack, heal, cast magic on, etc... and THAT has been in ALL FFs, even Mystic Quest, X-2 and 13 at least you can play them and then say they stink, but this one? You play it just once and you'll want to take it back for a refund! Oh wait, you said you downloaded it digitally? I hope it was from Pirate Bay because this game is WORTHLESS!
