In thirty-five years of existence, Final Fantasy has managed to capture the imagination of an ever wider audience; difficult to explain why. The adventure of the Japanese RPG, of which the Square Enix saga is undoubtedly the most prestigious ambassador, definitely has something special in the world of video games, and perhaps even in that of fiction.
It is not necessary to focus on the many borrowings from mythology, its gods and its bestiaries to see Final Fantasy as yet another attempt to write the great story of humanity. Throughout the centuries, we have never ceased to portray man in all his complexity, using the story as the form best able to convey the most subtle ideas. Final Fantasy , by shining these universal elements and structures common to many civilizations, tells us once again how existence itself has everything of a fantasy, that imagination is a language expressing a truth which, perhaps beyond us, but of which art is the canvas.
Through the works of Carl Gustav Jung, Joseph Campbell, Erich Neumann, Mircea Eliade or Jordan Peterson, this book will try to bring out the essence of Final Fantasy , which is in some respects a modern mythological story.
