I've heard a lot about it, and seen loads of FF cosplays, but I was just wondering- what's it actually all about? What kind of game is it and which console is it on or is it for PC/online? I would really like to know!

I also have never played a Final Fantasy game and only have a very vague idea of what they are all about. Er, turn-based battles, uh, spiky hair, um, bishie guys, chocobos, moogles, that's about all I know. Oh, and [spoiler]Aeris dies.[/spoiler]

In a nutshell...

I liked up until Final Fantasy IX. After that, they started stripping features out like Flyable Airships, NPCs, good story, etc in order to make better visuals. The old ones are basically on every console, but 1-3 launched on NES, 4-6 on SNES, 7-9 on PS1, 10-12 on PS2, and 13+ on PS3 / 360.

Final Fantasy is a series. The original game came out in 1987 on the NES, and the main numbered line-up is up to XIII now. You can play the various games on NES, SNES, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, GameBoy, GameBoy Advance, DS, PSP, PC, and more. :)

Each one has its own story, though there are plenty of spinoff and sequel games now. The earlier ones were mostly fantasy, with magic, castles, and airships. The newer ones are more sci-fi but keep the magic elements as well.

The games that are easiest to get now are going to be the ones on current systems, like Final Fantasy XIII on 360 & PS3. That is, unless you download emulators to play ROMs of the early games, or if you have a PlayStation 3 or a Wii you can buy the earlier games to play through the PlayStation Store and the Virtual Console. :)
