#4: Final Fantasy VI (SNES)

Original GamePro Score: 5 out of 5 Stars

Claim To Fame: Final Fantasy VI is widely agreed as the best FF game on the SNES, as well as a landmark title for Japanese RPGs in terms of story, music, and a laundry list of other fine-tuned features.

GamePro Magazine itself has gone on record about FFVI in the past: "Characters, plotlines, and multiple-choice scenarios all combine to form one fantastic game!" Fans were happy that the dialogue made it across the Pacific intact, along with the excellent orchestra-level music, about two dozen combat styles among all the main characters, and (at the time) the most awesome airship flight controls on a console game yet. FFVI capped off Square's SNES dominance with a bang, all while setting up the stage for an even bigger title that would change the RPG genre as mankind knew it.
