Final Fantasy was originally released by Square Soft in 1987. This is the game that started it all, the original Final Fantasy. The original version of the game was made for the NES, then it was ported to, let me see here, PS1, PSP, iOS, PC, MSX, Wonder Swan, Gameboy Advance, Mobile Phones, and 3DS, so a lot of different platforms. I played the PS1 version on my PS Vita.
What is in a name? The game was titled Final Fantasy because it was the last chance for success before bankruptcy for Square Soft and potentially being fired for Sakaguchi Hironobu. It really was the final dream for a company, and I am glad the title is ironic at this point. This is the beginning to fantastic world of Final Fantasy.

I played my version on my PS4.

Final Fantasy IX is the third and last FF game on the Playstation 1. It came out back in 2000. Once again, it was made by Square, today’s Square Enix. I believe there is a PC version that came out in 2016, but the version I played was the PSN version on my PSP.
A little disclaimer, some of the images are from the PC port, which I think is a remaster, so they look better than the version I played on.

I was introduced to the Final Fantasy series in my high school days, I know it’s late. I knew the name but never actually played it. Then my roommate, and very close friend of mine, introduced me to Final Fantasy VII as the gateway drug to this roller coaster. And that is how I started this series.
If you don’t already know, Final Fantasy VII is a Square (now Square Enix) JRPG game that was released n the Playstation 1 back in 1997. It was re-released on so many platforms after its incredible success. I played mine on my PSP with PSN release of the game.
