Happy 26th Birthday, Final Fantasy!

Illustration for article titled Happy 26th Birthday, emFinal Fantasy/em!

Congratulations, Final Fantasy—you made it! The big 2-6. You were born on December 18, 1987, and now you're here. Good work.


Last year I wrote about how you need to get your act together, Final Fantasy, and you seem to have listened. Final Fantasy XIV's remake was a resounding success, Lightning Returns is looking promising, and Final Fantasy XV, while probably still a long ways away, stole the show at E3.

So... good work! Keep it up! We'll pretend All The Bravest didn't happen.

Next year you'll be 27 and you can die like a rock star.
And maybe then Square-Enix can finally move on to other, better things.
