I'm nulling my vote on this one. Why? Because it's really unfair to stack two entirely types of games against one another. It's like asking which is better of the two: Megaman or Super Mario Kart? The FF series as we all knwo and love is, in it's purest form, an RPG series. True, Crsytal Chronicles did make a certainly different departure from the series' norm (and quite an expensive one might I add ), it's not enough to say it's action/adventure. As for the Zelda series, as much as they may try to implement RPG elements into it (ie. they started called the magic meter "MP" in O.O.T.), it is still strongly a action/adventure game. They come too far making the series one, I don't think they're going to change it's formula anytime soon.
For the record, I do remember Zelda II: Link's Adventure (if you have a GBA, pick it up!), which could be listed as a Action RPG if you wanted to get technical, but again, it doesn't qualify the two series to be stacked up against one another.

Hrm... can't really vote for either, since their from different genres. The only Zelda I've seen that plays anything like an RPG is Zelda 2 for the NES. All the others though, they most definately fit into the adventure genre. *shrugs* Eh, oh well... *enjoyed Link to the Past very much though*

Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link is the worst Zelda game I ever played. I like most of the Zelda games because they give you small portions of RPG in a mostly action game with a little puzzle solving. I never got into the FF games because I can't stand how you sit there and select a move for a character to do, he does it, and then it is the enemies turn to attack. That is why in my opinion most RPGs are not worth playing.
