I like how after 3 years of it, we're STILL arguing about final fantasy games and our own personal likes and dislikes regarding how they're approached. The best part of it all is at the end of the day every single one of us will be guaranteed to play XV regardless of how bittered we were or how engrossed and overjoyed by previous installments.
If you say otherwise I will call you a baldfaced liar.
Short and sweet truth here. Wise words sir.
I think its appropriate to note the hallmark of any worthy media is longstanding debate as to its value. Love it or hate it, D is right, it still has us talking now doesn't it? To explore the fact further, I also think there is great value in anything we love or hate enough to examine "why". Final Fantasy has certainly achieved that at the very least.
I think the ultimate truth in all of it for me is that, whether or I love FF or hate it, the franchise is valuable to me and worth experiencing as an enthusiast of the genre. The games are arguably cultural experiences at this point.
