I'm a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series. I've played every single one at least twice and just absolutely love the stratgeic and fast paced battles it provides. It became one of the staples of the JRPGs sliding itself next to greats like Dragon Quest and SMT.
also may possibly be the most popular JRPG series of all time because it
is loved by all regions and for good reason. They are just fantastic
games all around and I plan on covering this series. I've been wanting
to do it. If you've even for a second considered playing a JRPG start
with Final Fantasy IV!
Final Fantasy IV is where the series
truly began in my opinion. The first 3 were all great in their own right
but it didn't quite it its mark until the 4th one. A great story, a
stellar soundtrack and intense gameplay this one sets off the SNES
generation with a BANG! It was so well liked it even received a" which

Starting off with the lovely
Rydia! She's the first summoner Final Fantasy has gotten and her place

with her guidance you can blast through any adversary.

interest. I could never find use for her consistently so she's always
sitting out of my party
but she has a decent role and that's to do white magic which is pretty
much healing with one really fine attack spell near the end. Quick
beginners tip: Use cure spells on the undead. It'll help you out.
And last but certainly not least! Porom! Now, she got the biggest appearence upgrade in the sequel. Going from this...
Well, that ends Final Fantasy IV! I was considering just doing a
post that knocks out the entire series but I decided since each game has
this sense of individuality I think it's only fair that I cover them
each on their own. So the posts won't be too entirely big. And if I missed anything please do tell! I do believe
I covered everything the best I could but you never know. Thanks for
reading! And check out the monthly archive on the left side of the blog.
