This Final Fantasy Abbreviation Might Surprise You

Kotaku - Everybody knows that the "proper" abbreviation for Final Fantasy is "FF", right? Nope.

Recently, a website managed by the Japan Game Users Association asked over 300 Japanese gamers from teenage to 40-something about how they abbreviate Final Fantasy.

The story is too old to be commented.

If you've ever been to Japan, this isn't surprising at all. Starbucks is colloquially known as 'Sutaba', and McDonalds is usually called 'Maku' as well. It's commonplace over there.

Yeah, they really do shorten everything there. Some things that don't even need shortening. I have to question it at times lol.

Well it's also about making english named brand sounds more japanese , not just abbreviation

Now I'm reminded of the obligatory mistaken characters jokes from anime where a character says something mundane in a sentence but another character confuses it with some insult or tawdry statement.

Honestly I never really found those jokes funny. Maybe it's because I'm American -_-

70.1% of people still abbreviate Final Fantasy to FF. So I guess that makes it pretty commonplace.
