    Default Favorite job system?

    The job system is the character advancement system that has appeared in FF the most often, and for good reason! It's just super fun. So which game do you think did it best?

    I have to say X-2, the ability to switch on the fly is really nice. And there's accessories and Garmet Grids that let you use abilities from other jobs. But V, Tactics, and Bravely Default are really, really close.

    I chose Tatics, it was my first time learning the class difference and enjoyed it.

    This thread was just put up today, but I don't remember voting, but it says I voted. My favorite is X-2's.

    I voted for Tactics. I still haven't played X-2 and I haven't played V in a long time though so that may change.

    X-2. You get to go all Sailor Moon when you switch jobs.

    I picked FFTA because I just loved the races, but FFV, FFT, and Bravely Default are all pretty dang close. I love the mix-and-match element. It's super fun combining jobs with different abilities to make up your own unique character set. Changing dresspheres on the fly was fine and all, but it's still not quite up there.

    I can't really decide between FFV and FFTactics. V has balance, which is more than I can say for the rest of the entries on the list, but Tactics not only has my favorite version of the system, but probably my favorite set of classes. The setting also works well for the system.
