And do you think the VII remake is going to rank within those three?

Also by Square, I'm regarding both Squaresoft and Square Enix JRPGs.

1. Chrono Trigger
2. The World Ends With You
3. FF6
4. FF7
5. Saga Frontier

Top 5 I guess. The remake is setting up to be in this list, for sure.

Trigger

The order fluctuates. VII is probably always top 3.

Very top, easily. And will likely remain so.

It doesn't.

I don't have a fixed order but it's probably roughly:
1st/2nd: FFV and FFVIII
3rd-5th: FFI (PSP), FF Mystic Quest, FFX
6th-9th: FFVI, Chrono Trigger, FFVII, FFIX
10th-12th: FFII, FFIII, FFIV
13th: FFXIII
14th-16th: Super Mario RPG, FFXII, FFXV
FF Legend 1 and 2

I haven't played FFXI or FFXIV due to subscriptions.

I'm not sure if Tactics games (Bahamut Lagoon, FFT, FFTA) and Crystal Chronicles count as JRPGs?

Edit: I predict the remake will go around 13th-17th on my list.

VII was higher on the list earlier, but it has aged so bad, that it's almost impossible to play anymore =/

1. FFIX
2. FFXII
3. DQXI
4. FFVI
5. FFVII
6. FFVIII
Do, or do not. There is no "try".

Unlikely to beat them. Not a criticism though.

Really? The only bits I think have really aged badly are the mini-games (though I can't remember if they were always awful) and the bad translation. The graphics are very limited but the music really helps get across the emotion of scenes and turn-based battles aren't limited at all by graphics (though choosing your target is sometimes a massive pain in this game). The materia system is still really interesting with all the combinations you can do.

Which parts make it difficult to play for you?

Top 3 for me: FF14, FF4, and FF13-2. FF7 was good, but I’m all Cloud and Shephy-ied out at this point. I hope the remake does well though.
