The 'Final Fantasy 2' released in the US for the SNES, was actually Final Fantasy 4. The original FF2 and FF3 were not released outside of Japan, which is why they chose to name it like that.

However these days, the original FF2, FF3 and FF4 have been released on various formats, so are all now known by their correct names worldwide. So if you were to get Final Fantasy 2 for the PSP, this is the actual Final Fantasy 2, and not FF4.

No, it's partially the other way around. The Japanese Final Fantasy 4 became Final Fantasy 2 in the US, as the original 2 and 3 were skipped. So the original NES release of 'Final Fantasy 2' in the US, was actually Final Fantasy 4. Nowadays, the original FF2 has been released in various formats, and FF4 is now known by its correct name in the US, due to the GBA and DS rereleases.

In Final Fantasy Is Firion the son of Cecil and Rosa?

No, they are unrelated. Firion is orphaned at the beginning of Final Fantasy 2. Cecil and Rosa from Final Fantasy 4, have their own son, called Ceodore.

Is Final Fantasy 4 just a remake of Final Fantasy 2?

Originally, in Japan, Final Fantasy 2 and Final Fantasy 4 were different games in the same series. The former is the story of Firion and his friends, in a war-torn land. The latter is the story of the redemption of the Dark Knight Cecil. In the US only, Final Fantasy 2 and 3 were not ported, and Final Fantasy 4 was brought out there as Final Fantasy 2. FF5 likewise was skipped, and FF6 came out as Final Fantasy 3. Now, much later on, the west has had the original FF2 brought out for GBA and PSP, and the original FF4 for GBA and DS, etc. So the names are back to the original format. Therefore someone familiar with the US FF2 will find today's 'Final Fantasy 4' familiar. But it's not a 'remake of FF2', it's just the US version had a different naming scheme, which is now no longer relevant.

X without a doubt. I have played almost every FF game, and FF12 is one of my least favorites. Here's my personal ranking system: 1. Final Fantasy 7 (PSX, though I'm currently replaying on PS3 or PSP when on the move) 2. Final Fantasy 6 (SNES, originally released as 3, also played the PSX anthology version) 3. Final Fantasy 9 (PSX) 4. Final Fantasy 4 (SNES, originally 2. Also played the DS remake) 5. Crisis Core (PSP) 6. Final Fantasy 8 (PSX, will play the PS3/PSP port when finished with 7) 7. Final Fantasy 10 (PS2) 8. Final Fantasy 5 (played the PSX anthology version) 9. Final Fantasy 3 (played the DS remake) 10.Mystic Quest (SNES) 11. Final Fantasy 12 (PS2) 12. Final Fantasy 1 (NES) 13. Final Fantasy 11 (PC/PS2/XBOX360 14. Dirge of Cerberus (PS2) 15. Final Fantasy X-2 (PS2, horrible, horrible game) I think that's it...I haven't played any crystal chronicles or tactics games. Also, I never played FF2. I've downloaded The After Years to my Wii, but haven't gotten to it yet.
