Final Fantasy XVI: The Story so far...

Jonathan StantonApr 25, '23

The Final Fantasy franchise is a series of role-playing video games developed and published by Square Enix (formerly Square). The series began in 1987 with the release of the first Final Fantasy game for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in Japan, and has since grown to include numerous sequels, spin-offs, and adaptations for various gaming platforms and other media.


The games in the Final Fantasy series typically feature a mix of fantasy and science fiction elements, with themes such as love, loss, redemption, and the struggle between good and evil. Gameplay often involves a party of characters with unique abilities and personalities, who must explore a vast world, battle enemies, complete quests and puzzles, and progress through a complex narrative.


Each game in the series features a unique story and setting, although some share common themes and recurring elements, such as the presence of chocobos (large, flightless birds), moogles (cute, furry creatures), and the use of a recurring "Crystal" motif.


The franchise has been highly influential in the video game industry and has garnered a large and dedicated fanbase. Some of the most popular and critically acclaimed entries in the series include Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, and Final Fantasy XIV, among others.
