    I'm surprised at VI being more popular than both V and especially IV over there. Not at all surprised by X being number one with VII being second.

    Yeah, VI seems to have risen in standings, as it usually ranks lower in past polls in Japan. In fact it looks like it basically switched places with IV. I'm a bit disappointed as to where Tactics Advance ranked, and I most certainly disagree with how high Crisis Core ranked.

    The other thing that strikes me as odd is how high Lightning and Noctis are on the character polls, while the majority of their game's cast tend to rank significantly lower. Japan also doesn't tend to like villains as much since only a handful cracked the list in general.

    I think the only ranking I can really get behind here is the music track list. While not my ideal list, I can at least agree that most of the tracks are pretty top tier.

    My gacha baby made the list

    Solid list, though I did think Japan held Lightning and the XIII trilogy in higher regard than that.

    Not too bad a ranking. 10 is definitely overrated and 8 is underrated (5 above 8? even putting it above IV is laughable, though unsurprising)but mostly things look close to where I think they should belong. Having non-numbered entries that barely count in my estimation confuses some things for me, but at least most of those are also ranked pretty low (too low in the case.of Tactics, but probably pretty appropriate for the others)

    It's good to see FFXIV rightfully in the top 5.

    Personally I'd swap X and VII, but overall that top 5 is pretty much my own sentiment.

    Playing FFX for the first time is such a great memory. It's my 16th birthday and I got a bunch of candy and this new video game and I'm allowed to stay up as long as I want
