With lowly Millwall and Wigan Athletic facing each other in the other FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, many have labelled City's clash with Chelsea on Sunday as the match which will decide the eventual winner of the competition.
Barry, who is expected to start for City on Sunday, does not believe either Millwall or Wigan have any hope of winning the FA Cup and claims his side's semi-final clash with Chelsea can be considered the final of the competition.
"It feels more like a final," Barry told The Sun.
"This is the bigger game of the two and if we can get through it, this could well be another FA Cup for us.
"I am looking forward to it. You want to be playing big games at this stage of the season, as this is, when they hand out the trophies."
City head into their clash with Chelsea buoyed by their 2-1 win over arch-rivals Manchester United in the Premier League, a game Barry admits the club were 'desperate' to win.
"To win at Old Trafford two years in a row sets a good standard for our club," Barry added.
"The players were desperate to get three points and we would have been disappointed to get anything else, even a draw.
"To win for a second year running is a fantastic feeling.
"But there is some frustration that we haven't played like that more often.
"Even before the game kicked off, our players were thinking that we wished there was a little bit more at stake and the gap was a little bit closer."
Barry also declared his side would usurp United at the top of English football in future and expressed delight at Yaya Toure's recent decision to sign a new four-year contract which will keep him at the club till 2017.
"There are things we can learn from (Manchester United) - the fact that they have consistently got results this year without playing well," Barry mused.
"We need to try to do that ourselves next year.
"(And) when a player like (Yaya Toure) gets a new deal, it is a lift for everyone.
"You don't want to see players like that leaving. You want others like him coming in.
"When you can keep players like him for another four years, I am sure there will be others coming in, of the same level, to join him."
City beat Barnsley 5-0 in the previous round of the FA Cup.
