Final Fantasy, Square Enix’s long-running media franchise, features a wide range of stories, genres, and characters. The first game in the series, Final Fantasy, was released in 1987 and was one of the first RPGs to reach a wide audience and popularize the genre. Though there are many genre elements at work, the series often employs a characteristic blend of science fiction and fantasy to create unique worlds with complex lore and complicated politics.

Most of the games in the series stand on their own, but several have direct sequels that more deeply explore the conflicts and game worlds. There are 14 core games in the series to date, excluding direct sequels but including several spinoffs, such as tactical games, the Chocobo series, and the Kingdom Hearts series, which combines the world of Disney with the various worlds of Final Fantasy. Most of the games in the series borrow names and other inspiration from real-world sources, including Hindu gods, Arthurian legends, and Japanese history. The series has been long-praised for its graphical achievement and inventive storytelling, and has inspired RPGs since its first release in 1987.
