Awesome article. Well written, and too right about FFXII. *Applause*

I will agree that FF12 was ahead of its time. I remember playing this game and hating Vaan's guts with everything I had to the point that I deleted a 28 hour save and never came back to this game. Fast forward to now and I am watching people play this game on Twitch and I realized that Vaan isnt the worse character ever, that the story is really interesting, and that these collection of other characters are actually really great. So yes, I will say it here and now. I was wrong about FF12, its a really good game with really good characters. I was wrong and I too am sorry for all of the hate that I spread every time anyone would mention this game. I was a stupid kid that didn't get how good what I was being given was. Thankfully, I am a mature enough adult that I can admit I was wrong.

FF grew up too quickly. From quirky characters and romances up until X it jumped to a mature setting with a deep political story and realistic characters with realistic personalities and char development. When I played it the first time I was 17 and too young to get into it's world. Now I really enjoy it. It shows that a JRPG can deliver a deep world and character without the stereotipical and out of place weirdness and quirkiness.

I've been loving these articles lately. When XII came out, I felt like the only person that liked it, and I couldn't see why it wasn't connecting with more people. I'm glad it's finally getting the credit it deserves (though I think the changes made actually address the biggest problems for many people, and legitimately improve the overall product).

It gets no apology from me. All it gets is a thank you for all the great hours it provided me since I bought it day one all those years ago.

It was and still is my favourite entry in the FF series. Never understood why people hated on it. But then again most things i like people seem to hate on endlessly. Like xbox for example. Oh well it didnt stop me from enjoying it.

So glad it got the hd treatment.
