The Big List of Final Fantasy Games You Should Know

0

There are tons of Final Fantasy games out there. Mainline ones tell different stories over the years. Spin-offs continue storylines and act as crossovers. Sometimes you see character cameos in basketball games or board games. Mobile titles shut down. It’s a lot to keep track of! Especially since Square Enix tends to port and remaster things.

So, to help provide an informative resource, here’s Siliconera’s big list of Final Fantasy games you should know exist (or existed).

There are a number of Chocobo games too, ranging from roguelikes to sugoroku board games and racing titles. Since there are so much, they’d deserve their own article (eventually).
