I've decided to make my own account just to help out this Wiki keep up-to-date on the latest news. I've been coming here on a daily basis for almost three years now and have noticed some errors or other discrepancies and would edit them from time to time. I'm not too sure if I can offer any more information that's already present, but I'll do my best to look for spelling, grammar, and other kinds of errors and clean them up.
If you are interested in contacting me for any reason, drop me a line on my talk page. I'm also in #FFWiki IRC from time to time under the nick "KamikazePardee".
1-11-13: It's been almost a full year since I've updated this section, so maybe I should change that. Rather than talking about what I've been up to, I'd like to take some time and direct your attention to a great cause called Operation Suzaku. If that sounds familiar, you probably recognize it from the very promising game, Final Fantasy Type-0. To sum things up, this is a group of people dedicated to getting Square to release Type-0 outside of Japan. Its formal petition has recently surpassed 10,000 signatures, a feat Square is sure to recognize at some point. Other than signing the petition online, which literally only takes a minute, you can help out in several other ways, even get access to the Japanese demos, which I've played and enjoyed very much.
Anyways, here's a link to the main site and this one is to the actual petition. I figured the Wiki is the best place to get the word out and every little bit helps. So tell your friends, your enemies, your grandma, anyone who likes video games or the Final Fantasy series in general, and let's get Type-0 localized!
I found this video awhile ago. I thought it was pretty epic and it makes me wish I had the money and time to do something like this. I'm sure the guys at Robot Chicken couldn't have done it any better. A fun game to play while watching it is find all the allusions and previously used instances throughout.
Here are a few of my opinions concerning the series. However, keep in mind that I have only played a few Final Fantasy games in depth enough to form coherent and conclusive opinions. The 'places', so to speak are based on either game mechanics, personality, or general like-ability of a character and my attachment to them.
