Celebrating 25 years of Final Fantasy [Capsule Computers]

Jahanzeb Khan of Capsule Computers writes: "It all began as a last ditch effort to create a game that would sell reasonably well in 1987, but 25 years later it stands as one of the most iconic and successful video game franchises of all time, I am of course talking about Final Fantasy.

Ever since its debut on the Nintendo Entertainment System, the series has only risen in commercial success and popularity. It was however the highly acclaimed and revolutionary Final Fantasy VII on the original PlayStation that really gave the franchise a dominating presence all over the world, and it continues to ride that momentum till this very day. The staying power of Final Fantasy really shouldn’t surprise anyone, and what’s really impressive is how Final Fantasy has consistently been an integral of part of the gaming scene in just about every console generation since its inception, and continues to do so. The series now celebrates its 25th anniversary, and there are certainly no signs of it slowing down."

Wow, it's been 25 years already...older than me. That's insane. I should really catch up with the series.

I miss calling Final Fantasy the best RPG series of all time. It has had a fall from grace, and ATB and the iOS money grubbing from Square is showing us that this is just the start of the franchises' decline.

Final Fantasy is a great series, I think the earlier FF's were better than the ones that are out now. I still remember playing the first one the NES. And also the SNES version of the Final Fantasy 1.
