Why Final Fantasy Is Called Final Fantasy (And Other FF Trivia)

Did you know that Aeris's death was inspired by the death of Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi's mother? Or that the name Final Fantasy came from the sense of desperation Square felt back in the 80s?

Okay, maybe you did. Still, this is an interesting, well-produced set of trivia from Square Enix's ubiqutious role-playing game series. Even if some of this info has become common knowledge for RPG fans these days, it's still a good watch.
