Final Fantasy game series began in 1987 as a console role-playing game, developed by a small Japanese publishing company named Square Co. LTD. Up to that point the company had mostly published smaller games which sold respectably, but by no means were they a blockbuster success, so the idea to create a game similar to competitor Enix's Dragon Quest was born and work began on a massive one-megabit cartridge role-playing game that would attempt to revolutionize and transform the genre. All of Square's resources and hopes were placed on this single project and if it failed, Square would no longer exist. It was fittingly named "Final Fantasy." The first game was a huge success, and each sequel has been even more successful. As of 2008, there are twenty-eight games and more than 85 million units sold. The series holds seven Guinness World Records in the Guinness World Records Gamers' Edition 2008.

Most of the stories are independent, but featuring common elements defining the franchise. The games take place on a fantasy world with three large continents; the elemental powers on this world are determined by the state of four orbs (or crystals in later localizations), each ruling one of the four classical elements: earth, fire, water and wind. Numerous races inhabit this fantasy world, including Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Dragons, Mermaids and Robots. Each non-Human race has its own "town" in the game, although individuals are sometimes found in Human towns or other areas as well.
