Final Fantasy is a series of (mostly unrelated) turn-based roleplaying games, set in fantasy worlds. The series reached cult popularity with 1997’s Final Fantasy VII, but Final Fantasy VI is regarded as one of the best in the series. You can find Final Fantasy characters in Disney and Square Enix’s mash-up series, Kingdom Hearts.
