Final Fantasy IX | Retro Wrap-Up

With the Internet being abuzz with people giving their thoughts on the Final Fantasy XV demo, Episode Dusacae, I pretty much had no choice than to go with a Final Fantasy theme for this week’s Retro Wrap-Up. Even though it’s happened before (twice), and will probably happen again at some point, it’s always fun to look back at the various entries in this iconic RPG series and see how it has evolved over the years.

So this week, the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team–in other words, me–brings you completely new set of TV ads for this beloved franchise. Everyone has different opinions on which ones are their favorites. What are your favorite Final Fantasy games? Feel free to let us know in a comment.

Here are some highlights from the past week.




Also, you can check out Operation Recap on our YouTube channel for an alternate take on this week’s news.

And, as always, if you have any ideas or suggestions for retro commercials, let us know either through Facebook, Twitter, or just leave a good old-fashioned comment below.
