Forum rules
We once roamed the vast forums of Corona Coming Attractions. Some of us had been around from The Before Times, in the Days of Excelsior, while others of us had only recently begun our trek. When our home became filled with much evil, including the villainous Cannot-Post-in-This-Browser and the dreaded Cannot-Log-In, we flounced away most huffily to this new home away from home. We follow the flag of Jubboiter and talk about movies, life, the universe, and everything, often in a most vulgar fashion. All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

I guess I never thought to look up the origin of the name "Final Fantasy," but a recent reference in a Penny Arcade post brought me to it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy#Origin

Regardless of which of the presented explanations is true, they're both kind of poetic.

Beating Final Fantasy 7 (Playstation) is one of my finest achievements.
