In the final part of our series on the history of Final Fantasy we go through the PS2 era and beyond. That's Final Fantasy X-XIV. We follow the designers at Square Enix and try to explain how the financial disaster (Final Fantasy XIII and XIV) occurred. Plus we look ahead to the future for the series. We have a few key people left at Square Enix at this point, but the guy we're focusing on is Tetsuya Nomura, who exemplifies all the positive and negative traits at Square Enix today.
