Final Fantasy Origins Review | Trendy Gamers

Trendy Gamers: Final Fantasy I and Final Fantasy II have some serious issues. I recognize and appreciate the significant contribution they’ve made to the development of video games, especially in the role-playing genre, but they haven’t aged particularly well. The series has steadily improved itself with each iteration, so much so that returning to its roots feels simultaneously disappointing and tiresome. Amazing as they were for that time period, these games aren’t perfect, and their flaws have only become more apparent with age. Repetition of simple mechanics is a huge part of both titles, and playing them in the face of all the improvements made by their sequels is, quite frankly, an arduous task. I’ve seen many modern reviewers make assertions along the lines of “this is the way RPGs were meant to be,” or “Final Fantasy is still better than any RPG released in the last XX years,” and the comments feel rather disingenuous, fueled by the rose-tinted sunglasses of nostalgia. This does not necessarily make the Final Fantasy Origins bundle a bad game, and nor do I think it is one.

I kinda like the PSP versions a little better but these are cheaper, at least.
