The Let's Play is a collaborative video project created by the users of the Final Fantasy Wiki. Born from an idea by BlueHighwind, it resonated with the hearts of the users and the project quickly started up.
Basically speaking, the Let's Play is a bunch of users from the wiki talking over a bunch of footage from a Final Fantasy game. This footage is recorded by a certain user, the host, who appears in every episode of the Let's Play. The host is joined by three other randomly selected users, and for an hour they talk about the game or whatever other issues lay burden upon their souls. Each of them represents a different portion of the wiki, and each brings their own separate opinions to the table.
This hour of footage is split up into four parts, with one new part put up whenever we're able; updates will be announced on the /update page.
Future Let's Play projects can be discussed and proposed on /upcoming. Users will review the potential upcoming Let's Play project based on which of those is agreed on.
For fun, visitors are invited to visit the Trope Page for this project on TV Tropes.

And thus the project began with Let's Play of Final Fantasy VI, hosted by ScatheMote. Join him and as well as Henryacores, Some Color Mage, Daiton, BlueHighwind, Hexedmagica, 8bit BlackMage, Faethin, Chocolancer, Deadlyslashsword, Yuanchosaan, and Drake Clawfang on the seminal Let's Play of the Final Fantasy Wiki.
Final Fantasy Mystic QuestEdit

Taking place in between the two halves of Final Fantasy VI, BlueHighwind, along with ScatheMote, Tabbeh, Some Color Mage, Armageddon11, Deadlyslashsword, Chocolancer, 8bit BlackMage, and Drake Clawfang, venture on a new quest. A Mystic Quest. Despite some initial optimism, our heroes are left in a state of pure desperation. They are the Lost Generation, ruined by the Mystic Quest.
On that note, come and join our intrepid questers for the five part multivisual experience. You will laugh, cry, and maybe even get something in the mail.
Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

The project has evolved. It has grown. It has mutated. It has grown beyond our control. The power of these Let's Plays is now beyond all calculations, and now they've devoured their own creator, BlueHighwind. Coming along for the ride is Some Color Mage, Hexedmagica, 8bit BlackMage, Faethin, Jeppo, Jimcloud, Tia-Lewise, Deadlyslashsword, Yuanchosaan, Drake Clawfang, Ark, ScatheMote, FireKnight, and The Mystery Guest. Also includes a bizarre subplot involving a Faceless Squall, Time Compression, and the song I Am the Walrus.
Final Fantasy AdventureEdit
- List of videos: /Final Fantasy Adventure
Let the adventure begin! In the game that kicked off the Mana series, ScatheMote, along with BlueHighwind, Some Color Mage, Hexedmagica, Sorceror Nobody, 8bit BlackMage, Jeppo, Jimcloud, Deadlyslashsword, Yuanchosaan, Drake Clawfang, Ark, embark on a monochrome adventure that has a striking similarity to a certain series involving a certain legend about a certain Zelda. Watch as the group encounters increasingly disturbing enemies, more ideas stolen from Zelda than you can shake a hookshot at, and a confusing difficult curve that Scathe takes not all too well! Truly it is an adventure for the ages!
Final Fantasy VIIEdit

The revival of the Let's Play after a long period of inactivity, Technobliterator leads the project to play Final Fantasy VII, a game which brought many to the series and popularized not just Final Fantasy, but RPGs in general in the west. Join Techno, along with Catuse167, BlueHighwind, Fëasindë,
The Mystery Guest TacticAngel, Drake Clawfang, Some Color Mage, ScatheMote, Kiracieux, Tia-Lewise, Yuanchosaan, FireKnight251, Hexedmagica, Jimcloud and ????????. They plough through a journey of nostalgia and excitement. Well, and technical issues, mouse cursors, insults and often terrible gameplay. This was the first Let's Play to be completed by the wiki after two years.
Final Fantasy VEdit
- List of videos: /Final Fantasy V
Hexedmagica leads the Wiki on an adventure through the three worlds of Final Fantasy V, and also a bizarre subreddit, r/guyswithvelociraptors. Along the way, the brave souls learn Mineuchi and Level 5 Death and praise Gilgamesh, the warrior who can Clash on the Big Bridge.
A Mystery GameEdit
I regret everything.
Final Fantasy TacticsEdit
After having rhinectomies, Delita and Ovelia go for a romantic chicken-back ride. Before rescuing Joffrey Baratheon from certain death, Ramza has flashbacks within flashbacks, while Ritz advocates for equal pay for equal work.
A Bomb embraces existential nihilism. Solyeuse becomes the Archer on Top while Milleuda's men gallivant down the Oregon Trail. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead and Alexander O. Smith killed them.
Delita takes a nap. Discord causes strife. Saber dies, murdered at the hands of Saber. Ivalice was never great. Argath did nothing wrong.
