@Tasuki Nice post mate.

FF7 was a little after popping my cherry on Ridge Racer and Tekken. And just like those games moved me away from mario kart and street fighter 2, ff7 became my favourite rpg since Shining Force 2 and arguably my favourite series.

It shares a number of firsts for a game; being a terrorist, crazy summon animations, first time I controlled a transvestite character etc etc.

Strangely I rented ff7 out from a video shop. Only had it for the night and battled through 6/7 hours. From there I obviously bought the game a few weeks latwr and fell in man love with the characters chemistry, gameplay and world.

Theres something about final fantasy 7 which will always remain timeless. Its detailed enough to flesh out the world but also obscure for your imagination to do some work.

FFVII was a big budget blockbuster with heart: it matched an epic plot and dramatic character moments with moments of surprising weirdness and the sort of wonderful, goofy, even racey humor you almost never see in AAA games these days. This gave it a balance most RPGs can't achieve. It had everything I want in an RPG, and, even if it is deeply flawed in certain ways, it'll always be my favorite game in the series.

I didn't like FF7 the first time I played it so it sat on my shelf for a couple of months while I played the rest of my games to completion. When I was done with them I gave FF7 another go. To be honest it's simple cover graphic was intriguing to me lol.

Anyway, the second time I played it I was hooked within 30 minutes and I don't think I played anything else for 6 months or more.

Is Square Enix going to do anything special for FFVII's 20th Anniversary this year? If so, I just hope we get a brand-new trailer for the remake either in Tokyo Game Show, PlayStation Experience, or Jump Festa.

My favorite line in MegaMan Battle Network 3:

-Lan Hikari: "Let's do this, MegaMan! Battle routine, set!!"

-MegaMan.exe: "Execute!"

-BubbleMan.exe: "Blubbbbb!"

@ZurapiiYohane This year is the 30th anniversary for Final Fantasy since the first launched in 87 (great, great year by the way, since Metal Gear and yours truley also came to be )

SE did say they would be "celebrating" this year but honestly I don't see it. Other than FF12 and ongoing FF15 support we havnt had much to write home about. Maybe they can still save it with a FF7:Remake news blowout, release date and FF9:HD PS4 launch. Fingers crossed..

FFVII was the game that brought my favourite genre out of niche-land and made it popular for a decade so I have nothing but love for it. It hasn't aged as gracefully as some of his 2D predecessors or 3D successors but some of the visuals (Midgar!) and the incredible music had an incredible impact on me at the time. It is undoubtedly overrated as a game but it's impact on gaming culture was just massive.
I kind of think this remake thing they are doing is a suicidal mission that can't really be that successful but will undoubtedly play it as it comes out but... I am way more excited about that IX HD port and a potential XVI built on the many things they did right in the latest chapter.

Just got a platinum for XII Zodiac Age! It's a wonderful game, downright incredible if you consider it came out 11 years ago.
In some key aspects XII is a lot more polished than XV, but coming back to Noctis & C. to play the festival and testing the PS4Pro I couldn't help but realise how much more fun, warmth and discovery is in XV. I am now totally convinced XV is the best modern Final Fantasy and I hope they will go further down this kind of path in the future (minus the development hell / creating a functioning game out of the carcass of another one aspect of course).

@Feena "I am now totally convinced XV is the best modern Final Fantasy"

Since FF 12 that pretty much goes without saying. FF15 is great but has / had major issues with its story telling as the actual story is amazing once you piece it together in your head, funnily with commenting about Persona 5 earlier and its strange closing stages, if you compare that games story with the closing stages of ff15, Persona 5 is way better. But its obviously been fleshed out since I played it over xmas time.

Well done on the plat, ive given up on trophies now. Were do you fond the time for all the jrpg trophies?

@themcnoisy yeah the storytelling of P5 is very tight and far superior to the one in XV. That said that is really the one aspect I prefer in P5: I know it's not a popular opinion but I vastly preferred XV ...and I really wasn't expecting it myself. It has got a lot of heart and guts.

Forgive me for probably a dumb question from someone who has yet to play FFXV, but is planning to play it as soon as I can get control over my backlog a bit (making my way through Persona 5 and Danganronpa 2 right now) --
The question: Is the Assassin's Festival DLC going to be playable after Jan 31st 2018? I was roaming around the free DLC section of the PS store and noticed it said something like "limited time event" and then I went to the FFXV website and it said "...until January 31, 2018, you can partake in this limited time event ..." Does that mean it is only available to download until that date, or does it mean that even if previously downloaded that the content is not playable after that date? The website makes it sound like the latter - as though even if I download the DLC to play later, I will not be able to play it if I wait until after Jan 31st. If so, that seems really weird. Why would they do that?
Anyways, just wondering if I need to move the game up my backlog list to be sure to get it in within the next 5 months, or if the DLC is really even worth all that trouble.

@Th3solution I think it's not going to be playable after that date, the chocobo carnival couldn't be accessed at all after it ended.

Even if this dlc is a lot more developed and fun then we all expected it to be, in the end it's just a nice free extra, I wouldn't get hasty just for it. The game is already packed with a gazillion things to do so you'll have plenty to enjoy anyway.

@Feena I prefer ff15 too. The x amount of hours I put in flew by. With P5 its a real slog at times, it feels like ive been playing P5 for an eternity. Its just more fun in ff15 as you can set the pace and you dont have morgana telling you to goto bed. Im pretty sure I stayed up for 3 days in game time without saving one time. Suck that morgana.

@Th3solution limited time events finish on the end date. If your unsure if you will play it by then dont purchase it.

@Feena @themcnoisy Thanks for the feedback. I guess I'll just get my assassinating fix with AC: Origins if I don't get around to the event in time 😉.
It sounds like new FFXV events may be popping up occasionally. I wonder if there is a new one in the works for when the Assassin's Festival expires.

@Th3solution with the way the Assassin's Festival works, if you played the first say 5 chapters of the main game you should be able to play it with no issues and can then come back and finish the game at a later date

i only seem to find comfort in the darkness

OMG Final Fantasy IX on Ps4 incoming ??? All other gaming plans postponed!

@kyleforrester87 must be a really happy lad today.

@kyleforrester87 Sadly, no. I think I was just about to leave the village on an airship or something when I stopped playing.

Perhaps I'll continue playing it again once the game releases on PS4 so I can play it concurrently with other people (as I like to do when new games come out).

Edit: Apparently the game came out today, didn't know that, lol. I'll retract my statement then. I'll play it when I get done with some other games.
