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.

  • 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.
