Stevivor's Matt Gosper writes, "Final Fantasy X, being the first Final Fantasy title on the PS2, was a big step forward for my RPG consumption as a kid. The game introduced a whole new tier of detail to its smooth-faced, androgynously pretty protagonists as well as the long-anticipated addition of voice acting. This was one of the first games that I played that took on voice acting on such a large scale, a milestone in the evolution of the series. On top of this, Final Fantasy X-2 was the first true sequel in the flagship series’ history, another milestone moment. Whislt this did unfortunately set the precedent for games like Lightning Returns to exist, X-2 itself was a fun, more lighthearted take on a story set AFTER the world’s great catastrophe was resolved. Given the historic nature of both these games, Square Enix felt it was a great time for us to revisit them both in Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster."
