Best two words in the gaming: Final Fantasy

It's funny to think that I never played the first game in my favorite series of games until only a month ago. Final Fantasy is probably my favorite series of all time following by Legend of Zelda, but I didn't get addicted to the series until I rented Final Fantasy VI or III in the US version, to play on my Super Nintendo.

I had tried Final Fantasy I at a friend's house, rented Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, but it was a friend who gave my Final Fantasy VI that made me fall in love with the series. I want so badly to play the next game, Final Fantasy VII which came out on Playstation but I didn't get a chance until a year or two after it came out. I had to play it on my friend's console whenever they would lend it to me. Funny to think I owned a game that I didn't even own the console to play it on.

Once I finally bought a Playstation, I picked up both Final Fantasy VIII, and Final Fantasy IX which just had been released. The PS2 had just been released around that time and I was just buying the old Playstation. How behind the times was I?

Then Final Fantasy X came out and I jumped at the thought of buying PS2 just for the game. My boyfriend at the time pushed me to let him buy it though for the DVD player and newer games, and I agreed only if I could get FFX.

Since then I've bought FFX-2, FFXII, Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales, FFI, and FFII and I plan to buy FFIII soon, and FFIV and FFV when they come out. I don't think I'll get FFXI because its online or any of the Tactics games because they never really interested me.

I own a plush Chocobo and a Moogle and I plan to start buying action figures. I even own FFVII: Advent Children. I love FINAL FANTASY and hope that there will never be a final game in the series.

I used to be a huge Final Fantasy fan. Played it since the first game back 20 years ago.

These days there's such a glut of Final Fantasy cash in junk ti kind of makes me sick. I couldn't care less about the upcomming Final Fantasy XIII mess and I got bored of FFXII pretty quickly.

I still enjoy the old games but I'm actually starting to wish the series would just go away.
