The Start of a Legacy
8 January 2000 | by (Sanger, TX) – See all my reviews

I own all eight of them. I've played at least part of every Final Fantasy game of the series. And you know what?

I still have a special place in my heart for that very first Final Fantasy game to ever hit the world of Nintendo (once THE hottest game system around).

It was the game that I never owned as a kid, but always wanted to play. I played it sometimes when I visited friends that owned it. Now I have it and all seven of the others.

Not to brag. But it is an excellent series. And I sound like I'm 13. But that's ok. Because Final Fantasy is simply cool.
