On the Fifth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: (Twenty)Five Years of Final Fantasy

On the Fifth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
(Twenty)Five Years of Final Fantasy,
Four Video Game Feels,
Three Idol Shows,
Two Amazing Cartoons,
and The Best Boots in All of Anime

Exactly 25 years ago TODAY the very first Final Fantasy game came out in Japan. To celebrate the boyfriend and I went to the Distant Worlds concert in Montreal earlier this month. It was the first time the group actually made it to Montreal so we couldn't pass it up. Especially since Nobuo Uematsu was going to be there as well! We saw him at Anime Boston and were blown away so our bodies were ready for more.

I plan on making some in depth Final Fantasy posts eventually so for now I'll just leave you a very rough list of my Final Fantasy favourites. All of these I've seen all the way through to the end but might not have played them all myself. The bf and I play them together and sometimes he's in control more than I am but we're always together for story progress.

  1. Final Fantasy VI
  2. Final Fantasy IV (almost finished)
  3. Final Fantasy XIII
  4. Final Fantasy X
  5. Final Fantasy VIII
  6. Final Fantasy XIII-2
  7. Final Fantasy III (almost finished)
  8. Final Fantasy V
  9. Final Fantasy I
  10. Final Fantasy II

Games I haven't "played" yet:

  • Final Fantasy VII (currently trying to struggle through...)
  • Final Fantasy IX
  • Final Fantasy X-2
  • Final Fantasy XII
  • Final Fantasy XI (Online gameplay)
  • Final Fantasy XIV (Online gameplay)

And because why not add a bunch more memorable moments in a shout out anniversary post! Here's some anime moments and some bloggy ones too.

More fun ages (that I care about anyway)

Macross turned a whooping 30 years old this year. I didn't celebrate as much as I would have liked but I'll just look forward to watching that FB7 special they put out not that long ago.

The epic Legend of the Galactic Heroes novel started 30 years ago. One of these days I'll have a chance to read it I'm sure.

Space Adventure Cobra which I finally watched this year turns 30 too! Amazing show that they need to make more of!

Full Metal Panic and Chobits turn 10... Feels like yesterday still...

Fun note: The Astro Boy anime will be turning 50 freaking years old next year. So that's basically 50 years ago that anime really started to get noticed around the world! There's a fun project in the works that a bunch of peeps are doing. I'm going to be doing my own thing over here because I didn't find out about that project till it was too late but that's ok cause I had already been planning my own thing since October so look forward to it!

I'll let you guys decide which characters represent which bloggers

Blogging Buddy memories

Shinmaru jumped ship and joined Scamp's blog. Scamp also ran that blog tourney again. *eyerolls*

Ghostlightning shut down in October but otou-san had a baby in the same month so it evens out right?

2DT shut down in January a week after my Birthday... Still stalkable on twitter though!

Kritik der Animationskraft turned 4 and makes a fucking awesome post.

A Day Without Me makes a stir and a Baka-Raptor rating system that everyone loves.

Sai Mecha stalls and a top 50 list shows up finally along with a Cure Blogger.

Digibro and glothelegend and Landon continue to be awesome.

There's of course more memories but I didn't write them all down because these are the ones I can remember off the top of my head while writing this post today. <3

    You NEED to play FF IX. If you want, I could point you to places to find a emu.

    This game will give you so many feels and harks back to the older atmosphere and mood of the pre VII final fantasies. Its my favourite FF because of the great story and characters, so please do not dismiss it. It is the top FF in metacritic for that very reason.

      I’ve not dismissed any FF game, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I own them all so one day it’ll get finished for sure.

      Back when it first came out I tried playing it at my friends house got about an hour in and died LOL cause she didn’t have a save card at the time I didn’t bother trying it again haha because playing most rpg games without a save is kinda pointless!
