My favourite was and always will be FFVII, purely because it was the first game I played in the genre. Played most of the ones from before it since, and played all the numbered games after aside from XIV. X gets second place, mostly due to the fact that the first Blitzball tournament you have to take part in, for story reasons, gave me Wakkas ultimate limit break Attack Reels as the first prize, which I read was really rare to happen, but could, and omg the game was fun lol. Right up until the Dark Magus Sisters. Screw those cow bags.
