"Final Fantasy" is a series of role-playing video games for the Nintendo
Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and the Sony
PlayStation by Square Co. Ltd, a Japan-based video games company with
offices in the USA and maybe a few other countries as well.
The Final Fantasy series of games are among the most popular RPGs for
any video game or computer platform.
What makes the Final Fantasy series unique is how every game sequel uses
a different world from the game before it and different
this world, but usually maintains the same game engine, game play, and
some of the different kinds of items used in the games. And for those
people who think that video games are uneducational or rot young minds
away need look no further - the Final Fantasy series of games usually
contain items and characters taken out of either world history or
different mythologies. Even some of the characters and places in the
game have mythological functions to them.
