Summer is ending and gridiron madness has taken hold of much of the nation as the National Football League's preseason completes its third week.
Many college pigskin seasons begin this week and the NFL will kickoff on Sept. 9 forcing many football fans to make their official fantasy football selections.
Although many gamers have championed their third national championship in NCAA 11 or fourth super bowl ring in Madden 11, what about the rest of the video game community?
The time is now for football fanatics and gaming gurus to collide. Behold: Final Fantasy Football.
The more than 20-year-old video game franchise provides more than enough characters and attributes to warrant an official fantasy football selection. There is even a couple Wiki "Uncyclopedia" entries on the topic, so you know it's legit.
Over the next week VGF will showcase the best picks for the ultimate Final Fantasy Football team taken primarily from the franchise's most recent endeavors. Who's your pick?
Final Fantasy IX
This former bandit leader is known for his speed and agility. The pint-sized hero of Final Fantasy IX would make an ideal running back easily slipping through defenders. Although he may be the savior of Gaia, Zidane's quirky tale may prove an inconvenient trait and an easy target for defenders to make a quick tackle. Nevertheless, expect a wide variety of touchdown celebrations from the master of theatrics and member of the Tantalus Theater Troupe.
