    11 was the first online one. Apparently pretty decent if you want an MMO. But I'm not really interested in them, so I've never played it either. I actually have a boxed copy that I got for free, but I've never installed it.
    Looks like it's on the ps2 as well!

    Might try this on an emulator :beard:

    It was on the PS2, PC and Xbox 360, but I think the PS2 version was Japan only. You can't play it on an emulator. Since it's an MMO, it's completely dependent on having a subscription and connecting to their servers.

    FF12 is a good game, but the battle system quickly gets boring and tedious. The demo for FF14 or whatever they're up to now was just rubbish. Are the handheld FF's much good?

    If you want a "traditional" FF game, there isn't much on the handhelds unless you include remakes of the NES/SNES era games.

    But regardless, some of them are good games. Some of them not so much.

    I'll give you a quick rundown of the ones I've played.

    Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fate (DS) - The Crystal Chronicles series is a series of it's own really. It's an action-platformer RPG. This is the only one I've played and I didn't like it much.

    Tactics Advance (GBA) - It's alright. Not as good as the original Tactics on the PS1 and PSP.

    Tactics A2 (DS) - The sequel to Tactics Advance. I think it's pretty decent. Better than Advance, but still not as good as the original Tactics. Both are much more light hearted than the original. Might be worth playing A2 if you like FFXII as it's set in the same world and you can recruit some characters from XII.

    FFXII Revenant Wings (DS) - A real time strategy. Sequel to FFXII. I actually quite liked this. The story is ok, and there's actually more character development than there is in FFXII. There's a chance you might actually like (or at least tolerate) Vaan and Penelo by the end of it.

    4 Heroes of Light (DS) - The closest to a traditional FF you'll get on handhelds (excluding remakes). Turn based battles. It's a decent RPG in it's own right but I didn't think it felt that much like FF, and I can't remember much about it.

    Crisis Core (PSP) - Action RPG prequel to FFVII. I think it's very good. Good story, although sometimes it's a bit of a stretch to believe these events happened in the FFVII universe somehow without ever being mentioned in FFVII.

    Dissidia/Dissidia Duodecim (PSP) - Arena action combat game with characters from all the main series games. I lumped them together because Duodecim is basically just a better version with extra content. It's pretty cool. You get to actually play the crazy anime style fights like you see in FFVII Advent Children. Can get bloody hard though.

    Maybe also worth mentioning FFIV Complete on the PSP. It comes with a sequel to FFIV. But it's pretty crap to be honest. Just recycled content from FFIV. Long, boring dungeons. Mostly grinding.
