Final Fantasy series

A Game series by Square/Square Enix

Final Fantasy series

One of the best-selling video game franchises of all time1, Final Fantasy started as what was supposed to be the "final" game produced by Hironobu Sakaguchi for bankrupt developer Square2. With the success of Final Fantasy, Square was able to turn its fortunes around and its prophetic title turned out to be not quite so prophetic. Sakaguchi stayed on with Square and the Final Fantasy brand has had a number of sequels and spin-offs. The spin-off Final Fantasy Adventure was popular enough to create the Mana series. Games from other series (such as the SaGa series ) have been localized under the Final Fantasy brand in the United States for marketing purposes. It has also lent its name to both anime and Hollywood film productions.

Final Fantasy as a series is linked by reoccurring themes (e.g. vigilantism, environmentalism, anti-imperialism), entities and objects (e.g. moogles, chocobos, a character named Cid, Genji equipment, airships), game play conventions (e.g. active time battles, character classes), and mythos (heavy Japanese and Nordic influences). However with a few notable exceptions, each game is stand alone and can be enjoyed without playing any other game in the series.

...what's great about Theatrhythm tapping is that it feels like you're playing against your own limitations. Instead of facing off against some arbitrarily-difficult creation of some bored programmer in Osaka, you're fighting your body's lack of rhythm. And getting better requires practice, not level grinding.

Agni's Philosophy -- FINAL FANTASY REALTIME TECH DEMO

While there are no new Final Fantasy games shown at this year's E3, Square Enix did reveal a trailer called "Agni's Philosophy" that demonstrates the Luminous Studio engine, next-gen tech that can, according to a press release1, "depict high quality 'real time computer graphics' at the same level as 'pre-rendered computer graphics'. The fine details of the characters, who express life-like humanity, are showcased through their rich facial expressions, subtleties of their pupils and hair, and their brilliantly flowing garments."

Square Enix's Latest Desperate Attempt to Lure People into Final Fantasy XIV

BlogFinal Fantasy XIV didn't get off to a great start. The game was launched on PC to little/no fanfare. In fact gamers reported so many problems and issues that Hiromichi Tanaka resigned as producer along with a number of other staff changes1. Now that Square Enix have spent time re-designing and re-working the game - they want people to give them money. Read on

Final Fantasy XIII was released last year, and Final Fantasy Versus XIII is forthcoming. Now might be as good a time as any to clean the slate and start over.

In the West, Mass Effect has become a benchmark of sorts, offering the one-two punch of immediacy and innovation. Should Final Fantasy move away from its traditional Japanese role-playing element and ape, say, Mass Effect? Or Fallout 3? Is it necessary to hire a new character designer to give the games a fresh look?
