Other than sex, the most important thing in a guys life.

Final Fantasy is the world's premiere series of RPG's. In the modern RPG era's beginning, on the Nintendo Entertainment System (Family Computer in Japan), it could be said that the first big blockbuster titles were Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior (also known as Dragon Quest).

Final Fantasy was originally intended to be Square's last game, but due to its incredible success, they went on to continue the series.

Final Fantasy 1 through 3 were made for the Famicom / NES, Final Fantasy 4 through 6 were made for the Super Famicom / Super NES, and 7 and onward were made for the Sony Playstation. Final Fantasy recently entered the subscription-based MMORPG domain with the release of Final Fantasy XI. There is also Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles for the Nintendo GameCube and the Final Fantasy Adventure and Final Fantasy Legend series for the Game Boy.

The Final Fantasy games are unrelated to each other in plot, however there are many common elements that return time after time. These include Chocobos, large yellow birds that are ridden like horses; Moogles, which are the equivalent of fairies but take the form of cuddly little white creatures; Atma Weapon which is both the name of a sword and of a boss creature, and a character named Cid.

The NES / Super NES titles were well enjoyed by players and sold particularly well, as did another notable Square title, Chrono Trigger, which was released in the interim between Final Fantasy 6 and Final Fantasy 7.
But thanks to a successful mass-marketing campaign by Square (now Square-Enix) in 1997, Final Fantasy 7 was an astounding success. As with any other gig whose popularity reaches critical mass, Square-Enix has since lost the "knack" of making quality new games. This is of little concern however, because the new post-1997 gaming generation had little motivation to play the prior games of the series, and instead always eagerly awaits the next mediocre Final Fantasy title. As such, Square-Enix only updates the series out of opportunity and habit, rather than artistic merit; since Final Fantasy is an easy cash cow that shows no signs of running out of milk.

Final Fantasy is now mostly seen as a subculture item, closely related to the anime / japanimation subculture.
Final Fantasy 7 is the best RPG ever.

(Yeah right. Wake up, fanboys....... Final Fantasy 6 gets my vote.)

A never ending euphoria, with many sequels that induce multiple orgasms.
Dood, when Final Fantasy 13 comes out I might as well come...

A fun video game series that is loved by many. Most games in the series have an emotional and moving plot that keeps you playing. Unfortunately some of the fans are anime fanboys and fangirls who tend to overrate every game and get pissy when you mention that you like another Final Fantasy game, or even another series in general better than this game.
My opinion: I like Final Fantasy although I find Zelda to be a better game series. The games I have played are I, II, IV, VI, X, and XII. I liked I somewhat but I didn't really like II. VI is a great game but a bit overrated in my opinion. I loved the story of X. I enjoyed XII's gameplay but I found the story to be weak. I want to buy VII, VIII, and IX. My personal favourite game in the series is IV.

A game where you can waste countless hours playing, but yet the story and gameplay keep you hooked. People love to make fun of people who play these games, for no other reason than they think having emotions is wierd.

1, Yes, the stories have emotion and make the hardiest of us all cry at times.
2, Yes, there are those out there who take it more seriously than Christians took the Crusades, and happen to give the rest of us a bad name. (Just search "Tifa" without the google image safe search on, seriously.)
3, The Urban dictionary things acting like it's a disease, yes, you will be smelly and probably play 40 hours straight. Welcome to a game that takes more thought process than Halo.

Also, a game that your friend who acts like a macho man all the time will come over at the end and ruin it all for you.
Friend: What is this..?

Me: Final Fantasy.

Friend: Haha! That chick is totally almost nude!

Me: That's Rikku, now shut up, I'm trying to save the world.

Friend: Hahahah! She's still nude!

Me: -smack- Quiet, Yuna is finally seeing him again.

Friend: Oh come on, she's totally moaning in delight!

Me: ...Get out, you've ruined the moment I've played 30 hours to get to. Now, get out.

The only decent reason to play on any of Sony's game systems. Sports games don't even count as games, for those of you who weren't in the know.
Dammit, Square Enix keeps making me buy Sony's PeniSystem crap!Damn you, Final Fantasy!

Dopamine agonist for males between the ages of 14 and 89. The prevalence of this disorder is speading to include females between 12 and 40 who claim to be 22 and busty. All who are affected by FF Syndrome must have 6 of the following symptoms for at least 3 months to have a valid diagnosis:
1.) Interpersonal problems- partners leaving, missed parties, absenteeism at major family gatherings
2.) Neglect of personal hygiene to sustain level or 'party'
3.) Spending over one hour per day at play
4.) In severe scenarios, spending 4-40 hours straight at play
5.) Missing school or work to play
6.) Professional sanctions because of play
7.) Spending more money on game than other significant needs such as food, hygiene, medicine, or childcare
8.) Emotional distress based on illusion that FF Syndrome's characters and losses are real life

If you suspect that you or someone you care about has FF Syndrome, there is help. Sufferers of FF Syndrome should save the money he or she was going to get on the faster mother board and graphics. He or she should then shower, brush teeth, put on clean clothing (run laundry first if needed), and call and apologize to family/significant other/friends. Next, call the mental health service number on the back of his or her HMO card if applicable. If not, get in touch with your local FIAA and ask for Mental Health Medicaid. Gaming is a treatable addiction, do not be afraid to get help.
Jason plays final fantasy 17 hours a day. Jason's office reaks of body odor and has not been cleaned in several weeks. His friends and mother have called but he has not answered on account of his parties. He is considering working for final fantasy instead of at his job selling houses. Because of FF Syndrome, Jason has been late and absent from work several times. Jason fasts, not for religious reasons, but to play more final fantasy. When Jason does contact former friends, it is to tell them about his new graphic system and his cool gear he earned with FF. These situations have been occuring for the past five years.
