It’s also a bit strange to think about Final Fantasy and not get immediately excited anymore. There was a time when I would completely lose my shit when I even heard a small rumor of a new game. These days they’re often met with a slight sigh and a twinge of disdain and broken dreams. I’m getting ahead of myself though, we’re going to get to all that in a few weeks. Right now though, it’s time to take a look back. By doing so, we may gain a better understanding of our current situation and may even be able to understand the future of the beloved franchise.
