Episode 10 – Final Fantasy 1 & 2



It’s here!  Episode 10!  Double digits!  And what better way to handle that than to dive into one of the greatest game series out there, right from the very beginning?  It’s FINAL FANTASY, 1 and 2!  For some reason, we decided it would be great to celebrate it by doing TWO different 25-hour RPGs and shove them into one big episode!

 

These are classic games from a classic series, but… maybe not GREAT games.  The basics of the Final Fantasy series are clearly laid here though, and as a pair of gamers that absolutely love what Final Fantasy has become, it was a fun adventure to go all the way back to 1987 and see what they were like even before we were really gamers!

 

Come on and ride with us through the foundations of an amazing series of JRPGs and see why, in the end… GAINING EXPERIENCE IS KEY TO AN RPG!


Episode 9.5 – Final Fantasy Special!



And now, for a very special episode of Games We Grew Up With… FINAL FANTASY!  All of them!

 

From Firion in FF2 to Cloud in FF7, Terra in 6 to Lightning in 13, and Tactics to the MMOs, Final Fantasy has been impacting the world of RPGs for nearly 35 years.

 

As our Hosts Chris and Katie have played many of them over the years, they decided to do one giant “rose-tinted episode” about the series as a whole.  What they remember, what they love, what they love a little bit less, and what it has meant to their gaming lives.

 

Listen in as they navigate their oceans of memories of these games, and predict how their future playthroughs will go (including our next episode, combining Final Fantasy I & II!)
