I was just playing one of the FF games and I thought that it had a great story, and I thought it could make a good series. Each season based on one of the games, with each season as its own, rather than a continuous story throughout the series. Obviously it wouldn't have to be completely faithful to the games, but the over all story seems could act as a template for the season. Thoughts? Good idea, bad idea? Do you think that it could happen? Or if the idea could be accomplished right?

Yeah, well, why not?
I could imagine games like FF IX to be especially cool since your party takes different routes for a while and stuff. It'd be different, but I'm sure it could be nice.

Legends of the Crystals takes place hundreds of years after FFV, I guess.
Aw but that's not the same.
An anime based on our favorite games...would sure be something!
Imagine the ending of FF X in anime-form. Oh shit, millions of tears will be shed.

Sweet bliss. I'm not pulling any suggestive handkerchief-jokes here but I'm tellin ya...
Just the weird undressing-scene alone lololol.

Princess Garnet in anime-form would be something too, tho. I never liked her at all, but that chick is beautiful.

I think most of the FF games could make good TV series. I'm actually surprised they haven't done it before.

I`d say there`s enough plot in each FF game for at least a 50 episode anime

As Shuyin said, FFX would have been a great anime

ff7 and ff13 are the obvious choices but i would much rather see one based off of the original with a western medival gothic feel.

Last Order: Final Fantasy VII is what you're looking for. It was very fitting after playing Crisis Core.

I think Final Fantasy could make a great anime series and it would be best if it was an original story, not based on any game. Have similar mythos, races, and typical Final Fantasy fanfare, but have an entirely new story that best suits itself to anime story-telling. They could easily have 24 episode seasons if done correctly.

I am actually surprised they havent done a high budget anime yet with the Final Fantasy title. In my opinion, it would be best if Square Enix had the basic script themselves, but for them to give it to an anime company and director to make it work.

as long as nomura doesn't touch that script too much, holy shit!
