Despite their varied differences, each Final Fantasy game shares important characteristics. They all tell stories -- some better than others, of course --about what it means to be human and the consequences -- good and bad -- of one's actions. Each builds on its predecessor in some form or another, as well, be it fine-tuning the ATB system, making the job system more sophisticated, or simply presenting a highly engaging plot with intriguing characters and spectacular visuals.
Regardless of which is best, there is little wonder why this series has made such an impact on the gaming world.
