Let’s Play Final Fantasy II SNES (aka Final Fantasy IV)

Nanoonat posted a walkthrough of another great Squaresoft game that I played with Bert back in middle school. Originally released in Japan as Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy II was released in English translation on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It combines fantasy and science fiction elements as do all of the other Final Fantasy games. The first playthrough video is embedded above, and you can find his other videos on his channel here.

The interesting thing about watching longplays and walkthroughs on Youtube is listening to the commentary by the players. Some recorders do not provide commentary, but nanoonat does. Apparently, he originally played the game when he was 4-5 years old, and he is playing it again for the first time now. Memories, recollections, and dramatic readings of on-screen narration ensue. Also, he is recording the video late at night when he’s tired. Much can be studied in this genre of Youtube video.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
