IGN ranks (almost) every game in the Final Fantasy series

Although Final Fantasy XI and XIV are fantastic MMOs, we chose to focus on only on the single-player, mainline entries in the franchise.

Though they didn't choose this for their number one pick, my personal favourite in the series is IX. I just love everything about it, but especially the art style. It's so much more alive than VII. (I never played VIII unfortunately.)
