    Final Fantasy 3 is the best on the DS. 4 is a joke. 3 has the best gameplay and isn't a game that's been remade a thousand times already.

    I'd say 4 too. 3 was just ok and the others got boring for me.

    It depends on what you're looking.

    For a classic FF RPG, Final Fantasy IV.
    For a minigame collection, FF Fables: Chocobo Tales.
    For an Action-RPG, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: The Ring of Fates.
    For a Strategy RPG, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.

    They're all really good in their respective fields.

    Edit: Totally forgot about FFXII Ravenant Wings... good RTS, I guess.

    Well, if you like to play co-op with friends, then FF Chrystal Chronicles: Rings of fate is quite good, i played it with 3 buddies in school and it was great fun.
    Haven't bothered with FF3 & FF4.

    It's a close tie between FF Tactics Adv 2 and FF Crystal Chronicles:Ring of Fates. The depth and unlockables of Tactics is awesome. But the artistic design and incredible multiplay options are superb on RoF. So, if you are more into turn-based strategy games (like Advance Wars and Disgaea) get Tactics Adv. If you are more into the standard adventure, rpg games (like Zelda and Soma Bringer), and especially if you like playing with friends, it's FFCC:Rof all the way.

    P.S. Coming in at third place would be FFXII:Revenant Wings, if you are into real-time strategy games (like Robocalypse, Summon Night, etc.)

    Keep forgetting about that game. It is really good but not really a FF game for me.

    FF3 sucked the most it was soo boring.

    FFVI was more involving... a bit.

    Uhm, all (well all good & modern cards anyway) flashcards work properly with wi-fi and "stuff".

    Ok then, you didn't say your DSTT:s were fakes [​IMG] but i think there's a fake-bricker removal tool though IIRC, so you should be able to play those problem games without a problem (wasn't the latest firmware before the bricking "feature" compatible with all the ARM7 protected games though..? fairly certain of it.)
    Also, if you're worried about the "moogle of death"-screen it's fixed in one of the updates after the game was dumped, also there's an AR code that disables it.

    FFIV was fun but the characters weren't that great

    I suggest Final Fantasy III. Better gameplay than IV. I loved FFIV because the characters have preset abilities. With the Decant System, anyone can do anything, and the game quite loses it's strategic side in my opinion.

    EDIT: fixed some errors.

    Well there is
    Final Fantasy III
    Final Fantasy IV
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Ring of Fate
    Final Fantasy Tactics A2
    Final Fantasy Renevant Wings

    I'd Suggest either FF3 or FF4.

    In my opinion Crystal chronicles because it's real-time, and I can't stand turn-based or time-based
