Writer’s Commentary
It almost works, doesn’t it? It took some effort to get the higher numbers to scan to any degree whatsoever. Final Fantasy was the key, as that could go anywhere, so it was a case trying to find titles with enough syllables, then bunging Final Fantasy in the most desperate position. I’d have liked to use Killer 7, but it’s just too short. I’m sure the list could be improved though – particularly 6 – so your suggestions for alternatives are welcome!
