Ranking the Final Fantasy games from best to worst

5. Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn


With A Realm Reborn, Square Enix brought multiplayer to Final Fantasy with style.


Final Fantasy XIV Online was Square Enix’s second attempt at a Final Fantasy MMO, but it sadly did not turn out well and was initially regarded as a disappointment, with many players sticking to the earlier Final Fantasy XI for their dose of multiplayer online action.

But Square Enix pulled one of the greatest comebacks in gaming history with 2013’s Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Ream Reborn, a game that corrected most of the issues of the original launch and which turned out to be one of the best Final Fantasy games yet. The game offered a wide variety of classes to play as from archer to alchemist, and a humungous world to explore packed with enemies and dungeons to tackle alone or with other players online, while offering the same great story and production values as earlier games in the Final Fantasy canon.
