Top 5 'final' games and why they live up to their name

Final Fantasy has an interesting story behind its name. For the uninitiated, the classic series received its name due to the fact that the NES release wsa then-failing Square's last-ditch effort at making a dent in the game industry. With the company facing bankruptcy, designer Hironobu Sakaguchi saw the RPG as their last hurrah -- if they couldn't flourish, Sakaguchi planned to exit the business and quit the industry completely. But as we're all well aware, Final Fantasy was indeed a hit. So while there are numerous Final Fantasy entries, there was a meaning behind the fated title. It's another story then, when it comes to other games that adopt similar monikers, each referencing a "last," "end," or some sort of conclusion, whether it be the end of a journey, the last of a race, or even the extinction of mankind.
