Hello readers! Long time no see. I'm taking some time off in planning my next Lost series (It's coming.) that I promised to tell you about a thing I've been planning for a few months now. My Chris Carter-esque quest to play through all the main Final Fantasy games and every game linked to it over the course of 365 days.
On Tuesday the 18th of December 2012 the long-running Final Fantasy series celebrates 25 years. From that day until the 17th of December 2013 I will attempt to finish a bunch of Final Fantasy games, some that I own and some that I'll need to buy in order to play them. What are the rules? Here are the rules.
Every game in the main series or with a direct link to the main series.
The game must be played from start to at least one ending during the course of the year, I can't use save-files I currently have saved. The only exception to this rule is the two Online games which I will simply play actively for a week or two.
I must own a legal copy of the games I play myself, I can't borrow or pirate them.
No japanese-only games due to the lack of knowledge I have of the language.
So, let's get to the actual list. This list will be updated with thoughts on the games as well as details as to which version of the game I'm playing.
FINAL FANTASY (Owned Before Quest)
Released on: NES, PSX, GBA, PSP + More - Played on: PSP (20th Anniversary Edition)
