An (admittedly emotional) look at how the "Final Fantasy" franchise, once among the best in gaming, has lost its way and made itself irrelevant.
I do, it's shi* atm but I still would like to see it return
Everyone who complains is someone that obviously cares, something you see on a daily basis on FF related articles. Defeated the article before even reading it. Like a boss.
I bought consoles because of it slong with jrpgs...so I care that it would once again be called a masterpiece....well..i hope..
"Final Fantasy X – released December 2001 – Success. People go wild. Yay."
Final Fantasy irrelevant ... tunnel vision, anyone?
Considering there are many articles and tons of posts about it talking about I would say ya ppl care about ff
I think all of the old fans still care about it. We bitch about the new ones because they lost the magic, we just want the epicness of final fanatsy 1-10 back.
I dont understand why people think FFX (or 8 for that matter) was a good game I absolutely hated it everything from the batlesystem, blitzball to Titus (not so much Yuna.) FFXII was much better IMO. I spent hours and hours hunting every mark I could or creating the best gambits. The weakest thing about XII was the story. To me FFX was just as bad as FFXIII and just like 13 FFX-2 won me over somewhat. Sure the story made absolutley no sense but it was fun damnit. This is pretty much how I feel about FFX111-2, when playing the game you honestly feel like square took many criticsms to heart. Its honestly pretty good (though it still takes place in the same world as FFX111, which some may hate) I dont get these articles FF is still a fantastic franchise. Because one bad final fantasy game came outa few years ago everyone seems to want to condemn the whole series to hell for some reason. By the way the online final fantasies dont count considering that they are MMOs just with numeric titles
I agree with you i also really enjoyed FFXII i just thought it was missing in narrative,sure the story was there it just wasnt told much, you could be playing for hours and hours without any king of narrative and by time it got back to the story i could hardly even remember what i was doing and why. As for FFX i can understand why people were not keen on that game but its still miles better than FFXIII in my opinion.
Final Fantasy is dead. Most of the lead designers of the FF 1-10 games have left Square. We're now left with new story writers, character artists, and overall game designers. Final Fantasy as a series still lives on, but the heart and soul is dead.
Needs a name change. Eternal fantasy is more fitting.
