A Casual Intro to the Series
Final Fantasy is not really a series. It is more like a collection of unrelated stories that have similar themes.
An interesting fact: my friend pointed out that, even though the Final Fantasy series is neither a series nor related plotwise up until FF X, there are TWO common things in all of the games, starting at FFIV (II SNES). Question: Can you name the two common features? (the answer is at the bottom of this page.)
One obscure fact is that the odd-numbered games in this series focus on gameplay, and the even-numbered ones focus on plot.
The answer to the Question at the top is: Each have someone named Cid (no relation to each other), and each have the Chocobo
