If you’ve been patiently waiting for Final Fantasy XV to come to the PC, your wait might almost be over. Almost.
When the first Final Fantasy game came out, the name was a misnomer, not a clue to the decades and decades of endless games in the franchise. By this point, there have been so many FF games in different genres, with different stories and worlds and characters (though strangely all basically the same characters), games that took months of your time, each looking more gorgeous than the last. So of all the dozens and dozens of games in the Final Fantasy franchise, which are your favorites?
Someone did a pretty awesome job trying to make FFVII through Little Big Planet 2.
At Gamescon in Germany, Square Enix released lots of screenshots of the relaunch of Final Fantasy XIV. They’ve promised that with the relaunch, the game has been overhauled and drastically fixed. The screenshots look gorgeous, but that wasn’t the problem with the first attempt at FFXIV— it looked fucking gorgeous, only everything else about the game was utterly and horribly broken.
I guess you could call Final Fantasy XIV 2.0 a sequel to Final Fantasy XIV, but Square would like you to think of it more as a total reboot and relaunch of FFXIV, which a couple years ago, had an absolutely dismal and broken failure of a launch. Even though many of the initial issues were fixed with patches, Square has decided it’s just better to start over.
I know it’s been easy to kick around Final Fantasy lately, and Final Fantasy XIII got a lot of shit for being so linear, but I liked it. It was Final Fantasy XIV that made me swear off FF for a while, but I wouldn’t mind taking a swing at XIII-2.
