If there’s one thing nerds love to do, it’s argue about our favorite things and which one is better. SNES or Genesis? Batman or Superman? Mike or Joel? Amongst the myriad of geeky topics than can spur internet flamewars, there’s a particularly contentious one: which Final Fantasy game is the best? Anyone who has attempted to engage in such a debate has discovered something: your favorite FF game is somebody else’s least favorite FF game – and oftentimes for the very same exact reasons that you love it. With that in mind, we’ve set out to settle the debate once and for all. We’ve taken a long, hard look at all the mainline, numbered FF games – no spinoffs, no direct sequels ala X-2 – and have decided to end all arguments once and for all by describing why each and every one is simultaneously both the best and the worst Final Fantasy game ever. In the face of such irrefutable evidence, all arguments are certain to cease now and forevermore… right?

The final evolution of this re-envisioned edition of the original game in the series - or so we hope - is this, the PSP
You may recall back in January when we told you about Square Enix's plans to re-release the first two installments of its increasingly inaccurately-titled Final Fantasy series for the PSP. These are, of course, the centerpieces of the company's 20th anniversary celebration of the first game's 1987 release. Although you generally can't go wrong with early Final Fantasy, we'll confess that we'd have been perfectly content with some delicious cake or even a birthday card with a five dollar bill
Three Final Fantasy games are in the works for PSP, with Square Enix bringing Final Fantasy Anniversary Edition, Final Fantasy II Anniversary Edition, and enhanced remake Final Fantasy Tactics: The Lion War to Sony's gleaming handheld. The two Anniversary Edition titles will be remakes of the original Final Fantasy adventures, with the first game's Anniversary Edition including the new dungeon featured in the recent GBA release. Both will still be in 2D, but enhanced for PSP's high-contrast
