A Final Fantasy retrospective from a long term fan and his hopes that the series might return to glory.
FFXV says no. I will skip XIII-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Lightning has a period and whatever else there is, but will jump back in for XV.
Agreed. I think its time for people to stop crying doom over the series being over. XV will probably turn out to be the best in the series.
As a hardcore fan who thinks the last good one's were X, XII and Type 0, FFXV looks great from any angle. Cutting edge graphics, uematsu ost, crystal motif, towns, world map, great fighting system. But the best thing is what XIII got wrong; understandable story, not babbling non sense.
shimomura actually. i agree with you though
It's always the end of a franchise when Square-Enix has something to do with it.
Oh sorry guys, so this is bashing Square time; My Mistake XD
Any time is Square-Enix bashing time right now. Don't think they could do anything to change that for most of these people. As for me, I'll go into the new games like I've done with every one before them: with an open mind. I'm sure I'll enjoy what I play.
Its just the beginning for me, played my first final fantasy game in 13 and really enjoyed it. I just got 13-2 and will get Lightning returns, ff15, and going to get ff8 off the psn.
you gonna love FFVIII tell ya that
It sounds like ff8 has great stories/characters from what I read, so it sounds pretty exciting.
hmmm understandable. okay then. why don't you play the FF series from the ground up? THEN you'll have the fair perspective of what's really going on.
Good point/idea. I'll give the remakes of the earlier entries, 7-9 and the ffX remakes a shot,but I fear that going from the atb system to the turn based will feel really odd and uncomfortable for me.
Oddly the article did not mention Final Fantasy XV... out of spite? Who knows. XIV looks like it will finally be doing well. Lightning returns looks decent. And XV looks amazing. And don't give me bullshit about it not being turn-based. I love turn-based games and look: I don't care that XV is not because I know that it was under another name before. I'd have been worried if they announced an action RPG in the main series out of the blue though. So don't get me wrong, I don't want the series to go all ARPG on us, but at the same time I don't care that XV is an ARPG because it started as a spinoff.
XIV is awesome!!
I'd rather they return to simpler graphics but with complex gameplay to boot. I am not going to let FF XV pass though but in my perspective, I miss the old-school feel.. FFVI
FF3 SNES FTW
