Recently, I finished reading the cover story in the latest Game Informer, which is about Final Fantasy XV. I've known about it's development for a long time, it was originally called Final Fantasy Versus XIII. It's been in development for 10 years now and has undergone many changes, not just by name.

The Square-Enix team working on FFXV realized that while FF became an epic franchise, which has been pretty influential in our current games, some of the fanfare of the series has dwindled. Many fans of the series seem to prefer VII the most and also seem to view the series as going downhill from there. This doesn't apply to all of us though. FFVIII is my personal favorite, although I also really enjoyed IX and X (including X-2). Unfortunately, for me, that's when the series began to dwindle.

FFXI is a game that I didn't get into until a very long time after it's release. However, it is a MMORPG and requires a monthly subscription fee. It also isn't much of a game for one who's used to playing solo, like me. I liked XII and XIII, but for some reason they don't feel as epically awesome as many of the other FF games.

However, it looks like FFXV will change that. From what I've read, it sounds like it's going to be really good. I just hope it lives up to those expectations. The trailer looks really awesome, too! So, I think this is definitely something I want to get into.

However, I don't have a PS4 or Xbox One. A PC version may come eventually. So, I'm thinking that this could be a great reason to get a PS4. Although, something I saw seemed to show the game performs better on the Xbox One. FFVII: Remake is also in development and I think would probably be another good reason to get a PS4. Another Kingdom Hearts sequel is expected, too. That's something else I'm looking forward to.

So, what do you think of FFXV? Do you think it's a good reason to finally get a PS4 (or Xbox One)? Let me know what you think!

Here's a link about the game, although it only scratches the surface of what I read in the magazine:

This looks really rad. I don't know if I can yet justify buying a PS4 or an Xbox One yet though.

I think it looks and sounds great, but that's where the question of whether or not to get one of those consoles comes in. I can think of 3 games coming for the PS4 that I think I'd be interested in playing (all three I mentioned in this post). Other than that, I don't know, honestly. I still have some games for my PS3 I haven't finished or played through entirely. However, I still use it as a Blu-Ray player (and I rarely buy any new Blu-Rays) and I use it to watch YouTube and Amazon video on my TV. So, I have to ask myself if this game (or the others I mentioned) is really worth it. Frankly, I'm not entirely sure. I've gotten so used to PC gaming since I got this new PC a few years ago and thus I don't hardly play console games. Even when I've tried, I've felt physically uncomfortable doing so. Plus, what if the game turns out to be a bust? That would suck. So, there's a lot to weigh here and it definitely has some risk associated with it. I guess we'll see.

Thanks for the comment, Adam!
