I've heard VII in particular has aged pretty badly. As someone who's never played it, but also owns a PS4, I'm holding out hope that Square are actually one day going to release the remake on there instead of playing any rereleases of the untouched original.

I'm going to play all of these Final Fantasies!  Well, maybe not the dungeon crawler or the weird 'World' one, and I'm not sure about XV Mobile, but all of VII IX X and XII for sure.

I'm fully expecting VII to have aged horribly, but even then that'll just allow me to rub it in the face of the people who still insist it's the best game ever.  Win-win!

World and IX are the only one's I'd truly recommend of what's coming.

VII is very much in the same place as SM64 and OoT etc, loads will say it's the best, will still be in list's of best games even if it's been bettered.

VII is still fun to play. I'd argue that the only department that it's aged horribly in is in its visuals. From a storytelling, gameplay and music perspective, it holds up. If the Switch version is the same as the mobile ports, it'll be even better in the gameplay department as you can toggle the battles on and off and also fully heal your party after battle as well with some additional options.

I would say the only graphical issue is the characters outside of battle as I was having fun when I played it on PS4 but I got lost in Shinra Headquarters but the big deal with game was the story and I would think you all know what happens, that emotional connection people had who still say it's the best might be lost.

Ah yes, looking forward to that bit taking too long and being too maudlin.

I think the overall journey that the characters go through is still a compelling enough tale, even if the emotional oomph of things like Darth Vader telling Dumbledore he was a ghost all along suffer thanks to the lack of voice acting or the poorer graphical fidelity.

Rejoice! Square is being punished for the recent directions! Posting a $33 million loss and firing Tabata (guy in charge of FFXV). Oh, and they've cancelled all DLC plans for FFXV after the (presumably mostly finished) Episode Ardyn.

I for one am glad to see this. Over time FFXV has reflected very poorly in my mind. The gameplay is simplistic to the point even a button-masher has vast amounts more complexity, and the story was one of THE most poorly told things I've seen in any high tier production (which sucks because the game had some fantastic lore in its world and it's so disappointing that it got so utterly squandered). Worst of all is that the game was and felt very incomplete. So incomplete that even the recent "Royal Edition" STILL feels like a game that is only 70 percent done.

Maybe we'll finally, after over a decade, have a properly done Final Fantasy that isn't a disorganised mess. Ah who am I kidding, it's Square Enix, and the only games they're published in the last decade that weren't either narratively incoherent or boiling pots of undercooked ideas were exactly that, only published by them.

Still I have to wonder if this isn't a sign something is going very wrong at the company. This year has seen screwup after screwup, to the point they farted out The Silent Man without a shred of fanfare. Definitely a point of interest to keep an eye on, big things may loom for Square Enix is all of this is a portent of something the public has yet to be made privy to.

I really like Tabata and hope his new endeavour goes well but have to agree something might be wrong at Square.

It does seem to be a thing with Japanese Publishers as Capcom a few years ago looked like they were going to be sold and now they seem at the top of there game.

Tabata didn't get fired - he resigned. Supposedly he was renowned in Squeenix for being a fixer, much like Iwata during his game development years in that he could turn around projects that were ailing and actually get them out the door. I don't think we'd have ever even have seen FFXV had Tabata not taken over from Nomura after he left that game in development hell. I do wonder why he resigned, though. The DLC must have been going awfully.

Supposedly, he's launching his own studio - I wish him all the best! If he can turn out something as good as Lost Odyssey like when Sakaguchi left Squeenix, then we'll be a lucky bunch indeed.
