Final Fantasy is a great series. I'm more familiar with renditions of the older titles like 3 through 9. I really struggled with eight though. I never did get the hang of it. I've got "Last Story" sitting on my shelf waiting for me to try it out. I'm very exctited, it's by Hironobu Sakaguchi of Final Fantasy fame. I would check it out, but I just can't stop playing Xenoblade Chronicles; which I've got about two hundred and ninety hours into.
No matter where you go, there you are.
