 A History of Final Fantasy - Part I - Preamble
 Date  : Mar 17th, 2001
 Genre  : RPG
 Developer   : Squaresoft
 Author  : Jin-Ning Tioh

You may not know this, but before its multi-million success, Square was but a small publishing company based in Japan. There, Square published many other smaller games for the Famicom Disk System. These titles sold respectably, but the Famicom Disk System only had a modest installed base, making console hit a very elusive goal. It was only when Hironobu Sakaguchi suddenly got the bright idea of creating a game similar to competitor Enix's Dragon Quest, when work began on a massive one-megabit cartridge role-playing game for the Famicom Disk System that would attempt to revolutionize the basic formula of the RPG genre. Since the game would either make or break the company, they decided to name it Final Fantasy.

It's been 14 year since then, and the outcome is clear. The first Final Fantasy released was an enormous success in both the States and Japan, with every sequel released being even more successful then its predecessor, the latest of which being Final Fantasy X, and soon to be Final Fantasy XI. As if this wasn't enough, a major blockbuster entitled Final Fantasy : The Spirits Within was also released earlier this year. Join us as we trace the Final Fantasy series back to its roots and later to its current globe-spanning success. So with no further ado, let the adventure begin!
