What I'm wondering though is what is a final fantasy? I mean. . . it sounds nice and all, but I've played a few of the games and they've never actually said those words so. . . what's that all about?


It was suppose to be the last game that Square made or Enix, whose ever it was.

What is one of the things you do most in the games? Steal cars from pedestrians.


Wait, what? Steal...cars...from pedestrians?!

Because the names "Assassin's Creed" and "Call of Duty" were already taken.
SE may have another FF hit on their hands with FFX/X-2 HD. Perhaps the biggest FF since, well, FFX. :p

You know, if the game was originally called Grand Theft Auto because you stole a lot of cars from innocent drivers minding their own business, shouldn't the series be called something like Felony Murder or Hooker Massacre now? Because I know a lot of players kill more people in the commission of a crime in the games than they steal cars.
People, this is AMERICA! When push comes to shove? You shove that mother****** under a moving train! (>.<)
