...According to the Fans, by sirloinestake

And here's another new list. I can tell that it looks pretty good. My only concern is that some of the pics are a little too big, IMO.

The pic for #10 is definitely too big, and it's worse because of the huge black border around it that's just needlessly taking up space. The rest are on the largish side but are probably okay.

It's a decent list otherwise, and it's a good idea to get the fans to vote for this kind of thing - but you'll never really win in this scenario. I predict this list will still get a lot of downvotes despite the system that the author used to determine the spots, simply because FF fans are so passionate.

Interesting list.

At the end of the Vivi entry, it says he's 6 months old, and the writer says that might be the youngest playable character ever. If you only look at Final Fantasy games, sure, but if you broaden that comment to encompass ALL video games, it's incorrect.

In both Fallout 3 and Assassin's Creed 2, you play as a literal newborn. In AC2, you can merely move your head and arms and legs a little bit, but it's enough.

Good list. I remember the SNES version.

The image issue is fair enough, but when the system doesnt let you resize efficently and the image looked a similar size to others on the screenshot page, then surely thats forgivable?

Also, this whole project was a bit of an albatross around my neck. Just completing it 6 months after I started it was a miracle given my job.

No wonder people are less willing to write them now. Its a time sink.

Yeah the top 10 list editor isn't very helpful, as I've said many times in the past. It only shows you a thumbnail sized image regardless of how big the image actually is. I made a suggestion to add a preview option to the top 10 list editor so we can actually see what it looks like before submitting it, but clearly nothing has been done about that.

You just need to look at the size of the image you are linking to on the site beforehand. If it's too big, then you need to manually resize it yourself - that is, download it, open it in an image editor, resize, save, then submit the screenshot for approval, then link in the new smaller screenshot once it's approved.

I know it sucks but that's what you need to do when using custom images to avoid this happening.

I'm actually loving the pictures and their sizes.

Part of that is because so many of my favorite characters made the cut. Another part of that is because this list was very well written.

Ramza at number 2? Vivi at number 1? Agrias actually making it on there? I'm very pleased.

Great list.

List didn't end up being what I thought it would be so I was very pleasantly surprised.

A very well-written top ten. I agree that Ramza, Agrias, and Vivi are definitely high points as far as great characters go. I'd have added Ovelia, but that might have made the list "too saturated" with Tactics characters.

A well spaced list. Unlike the previous front-page list, this one is clear, easy-to-read, and very informative. Given the narrow spacing (PS1 games) this list has cut down the amount of sprawling.

As the entries were voted on, congrats for listing runner's up. I like the style stake uses: game details, a poignant quip, a game highlight, a semi-brief personal note mixed with character summary, and neat bits of trivia. (Heh. RSPCA.)

I can't really comment on the order or the selection as entries were voted on, but I'm not surprised at those listed (except Vivi for #1). I'd be curious about what the remaining voting looked like, but not including it in the list makes it cleaner overall.
