|Final Fantasy is one of those games which needs no introduction to most gamers. For the rest of you, the game follows four generic heroes who are trying to restore the four orbs which have been contaminated, and ultimately defeat Chaos.
Unfortunately only one of the warriors is actually a hero; the rest are sissies who died early on during the quests. Strange as this may sound, much time is saved by doing so since fewer commands need to be entered every time the player runs from a random encounter.
On TASVideos perfect runs are continually improved, often through very unexpected changes. This run improves the old Final Fantasy TAS by 9.11 seconds by getting lower stats and spending more time at inns and item shops.
For those who think they have a better sense of humor than the author, he has provided python scripts which allow you to recreate the entire run, except with your own choices for character names substituted for his. Available as Windows standalone or source.
The downoadable videos contain soft subtitles with TheAxeMan's notes, as well as YouTube stream.
