Do you know my little pony lore too? It has been around much longer than FF, if you are interested in anime you couldn't have just avoided it!At least among gamers it is very stunning and unbelievable to hear someone not recognising a character from one of the MOST talked about RPG game of the last two decades and a game that is also often found on the "Best games ever made" lists. Okay, they are not Mario level of famous characters but... god damn dude!
I'm not familiar with supermario characters either, OK, I know Mario and Luigi exist, that's about the extent of my knowledge.
Just as I'm not familiar with any Harry Potter characters, because I'm not interested in the books or the movies.
There is no obvious entry point to the franchise. The older games are outdated, even their remakes. And if I ask any fan which game should I start with, they'll all give different answers. Every part seems to have some haters as well as devotees among those who consider themselves FF fans.Anywho, there is no FF timeline. They are all their own games in their own worlds and at most share a few features like couple of mascot animals etc...
I tried FF once asked fans which game should I get and I ended up buying VIII Remastered, but I Have no idea how that is remastered as it'd look outdated even if it was 1992 not 2022. The controls and mechanics and even the graphics are worse than Legend of Kyrandia. So that was a waste of money.
