PixlBit's Final Fantasy Retrospective: The Seventh Generation Years

PixlBit | Welcome to the final part of PixlBit’s comprehensive look at the Final Fantasy series. In our last installment, we went through the PlayStation 2 era, which took the series into uncharted territory, for better or worse. This time, we look at the most recent Final Fantasy games, which have gone on to become the most divisive and controversial games in the series so far. Join us as we explore the Seventh Generation years! (Culture, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

couldn't finish reading this part because I find it really hard to care about these newer FF games.

I can understand that. For my part, I actually enjoyed FF XIII and XIII-2, but XIV made me sad. I'm looking forward to A Realm Reborn though, and I'll be buying Lightning Returns on day one, even if I'm not as excited for it as I was about XIII.

it's definitely been a bad generation for final fantasy, for the fans at the least. I guess all hope lies in versus xiii to give this generation a grand send off.

I really hope that game doesn't end up as vaporware.

"We wanted to create a new game, even a new genre. (...) In a lot of senses FFXIII is more like an FPS than an RPG," director Motomu Toriyama added.

He should have been immediately fired for making that statement. It is now clear to me, that this man is one of the reasons for the series pandering to the FPS crowd. He is one of the reasons why the series has stumbled so badly.

You better believe that I'll be keeping an eye out for that name. If I see his name linked to any future Final Fantasy, I will not buy it.
