SE needs to stop thinking graphics make the game, and start thinking like they used to. IE, the GAME made the game.
Maybe they still do think that. How would.you know?
If they thought that, their recent games would have had that "feeling" about them.
If you are new to gaming, you don't know that feeling. Don't worry about it.
I'm not new to gaming, and unless you started with the first Final Fantasy, I might be more of a veteran of this series than you. The point is, I think it's a folly to think that people don't give these things everything they have, whether you think it's good or not. Getting the chance to speak to certain people in certain companies has made me doubt that there are developers out there that DON'T think that.
I also hate the word "feeling" used to describe things. It's a meaningless word. If you can't identify it, you probably don't know what it is.
Disagree, I loved 13. The problem is exactly what you're describing in your post. We're all adults now and the FF games don't give the same sense of awe and excitement. The games really haven't changed that much - we have.
The games have changed quite and if you say they haven't changed you need to (re)play the older games -__- --- Read the mania: http://www.fanfiction.net/~nonexistinghero In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.
