This could be a good thing.
Final Fantasy may have had a few moments in recent years but, I used to really look forward to those titles. I used to get excited about a FF game coming out. These days I'm like "damn, I hope it doesn't get even more gay." The last FF I completed was FF10. After that, haven't played one the base games since.
I mean I hear FF13 is "worth" a playthrough but, the art style seems, just, kinda childish and almost pop music like, like the characters could sing and dance like the Backstreet Boys or something.
It was downhill after FF7 for me (not counting FFT which rocked - but wasn't actually part of the main series). Not sure where to count FF11 in this mix, its not quite comparable in the same way to an offline playthrough.
