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.

I actually like ff13 and I know many people didn't however this I wouldn't even waste my money on.

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.

2 Final Fantasy XIII

After being the next game after the best game in the series, this is trash

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. - Mikocloud

Not only one of the worst final fantasy games, but one of the worst games period.

Regret ever buying this at full price.

3 Final Fantasy X-2

I like this game, but why is World Of Final Fantasy not on here? It should be above ff10-2 - Gehenna

I do not get what is so bad about this game.

Take FFX, remove the good characters, replace the awesome soundtrack by electro and spit on the plot to obtain this game.

This game is awesome.

4 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.

No wonder it was taken off the app store - VideoGamefan5

Cash-grabbing pile of garbage!

At least any other FF game had something to go for. But this? Nope!

5 Final Fantasy II

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? - Akai

2 sucks, 4 is the best

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.

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) - BimmyJim

7 Final Fantasy VIII

Junctioning is too complicated for me!

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

How this game have sex in it? Did Squall and Rinoa do something? - yunafreya648


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.

One of the most revolutionizing FF titles! Should not be in this list!

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 XII: Revenant Wings
10 Final Fantasy VII

So overrated. And most of its fans are jerks.

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!

Its beyond me why this is even on this list.

Haters need to shut up and do something berr with their lives than diss a video game


The Contenders

11 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. - evil7

12 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...

The main character is annoying - ikerevievs

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

This is amazing...

16 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.

17 Final Fantasy Adventure
18 Final Fantasy VI

Awesome characters, nice plot twists, above average combat sys (for the time), ridiculous cringy childish evil clown main antagonist

19 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.

20 Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
21 Final Fantasy IV
22 Final Fantasy XV

I will murder who put this on here

Black sheep - Firion2


23 Final Fantasy
24 Final Fantasy V

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

25 Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers
26 Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

What it's a movie - yunafreya648

That's a movie...

27 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!
