Final Fantasy XIII-2 just dropped to mostly positive reviews. Gone are the mistakes of its predecessor. It’s no longer more linear than an episode of Full House and the battle system is quicker, leaner and pretty darned fun. Finally, we can appreciate the series again with little or no reservations (Let’s conveniently forget about XIV). 

Now is the time to gaze down through the decades and recount the coolest and most cherished moments in final and fantastical history. Consider this the opening salvo in our celebration of its twenty five years on this Gaia earth.

Note: We will be sticking to the series proper here. The spin-offs have some cool moments, Tactics especially, but that is an article for another time. Also, this is going to have more spoilers than your loud coworker the day after Lost aired. Read at your own risk.
