Games "On January 31st, 1997, Final Fantasy VII was released to the Japanese public. This single game both revolutionized and raised the bar of Japanese style console role playing games. It success was so staggering, it placed Squaresoft firmly on top the the the genre, displacing the Dragon Quest series created by the rival Enix company. The story of how this game came to be has a story more expansive than the game itself. It starts, as most stories do, with it's prequel." An insanely detailed - although missing certain parts, here and there - look at Final Fantasy VII's engine. As in, 211 pages detailed. You might want to grab a coffee.

The irony of Final Fantasy games is that they don't seem to be actually "final".

if they keep 'improving' the series like they did so far ( 13, 13-2, 14 ), they will get the 'final' part with ease.

Don't forget 8. And X. And X-2.

Here's hoping. Maybe then we'll start seeing RPGs that are actually RPGs again, instead of just interactive spank material for creepy anime nerds.
