    Well, do people know? I hope not, because then this thread will have a point;)

    Well at the time before FF1 Squaresoft were going bankrupt, Really low on money, so as a Last resort the made FF, not expecting it to do very well, so thats were they got Final from, The Final game of Squaresoft...But that was not to be as you can all see:) Its not Final Fantasy anymore really its:Fantasy:p

    you know, people are asking why the movie Final Fantasy had that name. Well, being Squaresofts first and final film, I'd say we have a reason why too.

    Yeah but the movie scared HollyWood stars which is why it failed. There is some conspiracy againt it.. But the FF creater tells you why its called Final Fantasy in the special European Editan on FF10.

    I didn't really think of that before but if they were going down hill why did they continue to create ff or was it doing so well that they continued to make it? and if so will there ever be a final final fantasy?

    I'm sure most of you have seen reviews on the rumour of the upcoming New FF film based several years after the original FF7.....do you reckon it will be anygood,as the first one was a bit of a flop.

    I was told that reason a long time ago, and its very true. Congrats to Squaresoft for making such a kickass last game in the face of a company liquidation. HOO-RAH!!!

    I heard about the ff7 move called Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Here is a link to the square enix site about it.

    nm on the recommendation. about the whole "Final" Fantasy thing, Maybe its because each ggame has its own storyline and it ends at the "finale"? (cept for 7 and 10(( 10-2 sux anyway in my opinion (((maybe its because im a guy))) and 7 was just 2 cool to eand)) thats about it). Maybe im right, maybe im wrong?? who know?
