This past Christmas, I received some really cool books that if you are a fan of the Final Fantasy game series…these are pretty much perfect.
Dark Horse Publications has seemingly nailed the Video Game Encyclopedia market, starting with the uber popular Zelda Triforce books like the Hyrule Historia, Arts & Artifacts, and lastly the Encyclopedia. All 3 were chock full of Zelda stuff that we all never knew that we wanted, but once we had it in our hands, we couldn’t get enough of it.
It was only a matter of time that they would give the Final Fantasy series the same treatment. These games are hugely popular and the books do pretty good justice on covering art work, character bios, and even some content I had never seen yet.
If you are a Final Fantasy fan, these are must have books. The first book covers games 1-6 and the 2nd book covers the Playstation games 7-9. A third book will be released soon and will cover the remaining titles in the series.
I stopped really diving into Final Fantasy after the 9th game and I don’t really have a good reason why, I guess I just fell out of the world, but I love reading and researching how the human mind can develop such a beloved world. It’s fascinating how someone’s imagination can take them to amazing worlds, and that what’s these books are to me.
