The Essential 100, No. 29: Final Fantasy IV

With a cultural void so large, something eventually has to fill it. And for me, the simplistic, melodramatic tale of good-versus-evil that occupied my adolescent brain -- and continues to take up a sizable amount of space -- came in the form of 1991's Final Fantasy IV, the first of several successful SNES RPGs from Squaresoft (now Square Enix). My child self's immediate interest in Final Fantasy IV shouldn't come as a shock, as the game borrows several bits of Star Wars magic: Protagonist Cecil's journey to overcome the darkness in his heart matches Luke Skywalker's own trial. (Final Fantasy IV, Nintendo DS, PSP)
