How Final Fantasy Was REALLY Created

How Final Fantasy Was REALLY Created

"Everyone's mean. Except for this one nice... We'll make her a girl. And then we'll murder the girl. We'll just murder the girl."

You probably know a thing or two about how Final Fantasy saved a company called Square from bankruptcy back in the late 80s, but did you know that creator Hironobu Sakaguchi developed the entire series by sitting at a desk and slamming his fist against a keyboard? Watch and learn:

This sketch — created by the hilarious folks at Mega64 — played during the GDC awards in San Francisco on Wednesday night, where Sakaguchi was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his accomplishments in hiphop.


    Probably the best thing I've seen all year, It constantly amazes me how they can get these guys to do these hilarious videos.

    Cliffy telling him to get the fuck out gave me a bit of a chuckle.

    Speaking of Hironobu Sakaguchi, I've been playing his latest game, Terra Battle for a while. While at first look it seems like yet another F2P mobile rpg with exploitative micropayments, it is actually not (I have yet to find an instance where I feel I need to make a purchase in order to advance). It also has a rather innovative mechanic of sliding your characters across the tiled battlefield in a limited amount of time to set them in tactically advantageous positions.

    Mentioning this here because they gave away a ton of stuff in celebration of Sakaguchi's award.
