Final Fantasy has been a total hit since 1986 , but as technology advances , so does the graphics , but is Square-Enix going overboard and ignoring the storyline and worrying about the graphics more than the most important part of each Final Fantasy game which is their storyline ?
I like all of the stories up until about X and X2, I was not a fan of the sin story line. I think it is safe to say that almost all games now look more towards graphics than story. I mean look at the big hits of the last couple of years; Halo 2 and 3 had bad story, Gears of War although fun and good looking and a very basic story line with no real substance, even RPG’s are getting a bit lazy Mass Effect wasn’t some amazing story and Oblivion sure wasn’t anything new what so ever. In order to find really good story you might need to head back into some vintage games.
I actually liked all the stories from 6 to 10. 12 was completely uninteresting though as were the earlier ones. However, the ones with … Lacking stories still had awesome gameplay to make up for it, just I prefer the 5 that had both. Yeah, I just said FF8 had awesome gameplay, you cant argue that it didnt have depth
I have recently been able to test Final Fantasy 4 Grimoire of the Rift and the graphics were simply SUPERB! The set-up was a bit iffish i admitted that to the watcher ( Worker ) who was watching me play but the graphics were like Habbo where it was pixelized and it was great. When i have a screenshot ill post it. I got to take the game home and lemme tell you its exactly like pokemon. Exept its harder because you have to get in a certain spot to use a certain move.
Final Fantasy 7 was a huge inspiration for Enola: Prelude. We decided to pay homage to it by including a meteor limit break, watch out for that one, its badass :P
While I loved 7 and 8, i never got the chance to play 9 which is a bit of a shame. I think anything they have made past 10 has been terrible. The artwork, while high res, is just weird. The male characters all look progressively more like women while being male. They also have a habit of including more and more annoying characters. I swear half the cast of FF13 made me want to rip my face off. There is also less gameplay, as you spend a LOT of time watching FMV videos. This wouldn’t be so bad if the characters weren’t like a bad rash.
However i have so much love for the first ones that I will keep buying them, in the vain hope they remember how to make a decent game.
