The following video contains all the footage of Final Fantasy XV (FF15) that has been released up until last September (there was more footage of the game play released after that). I wished the first part in the video had English subtitles. Regardless, I like how there was a bit of humor added in it, such as the frog, and in some of the latest footage, the dog and cat camera. xD
Furthermore, I’ve read that most of the main characters in the game are going to be in their mid-20’s. That’s perfect, because when I was young, I remember most of the main characters in the Final Fantasy series being around 17/18, or in their early 20’s. Now that I’m past that age, it’s nice to see the characters in the latest Final Fantasy game that are around my age!
I suppose it’s also because when I was in my early 20’s, I often wondered, “These characters in Final Fantasy get to save the world and also find a love interest at the age of 17/18, while I haven’t even done any of those things…” Now I don’t need to complain. =P Thank you, Square-Enix. I wonder if it’s because the company is aware that their main target market for their games are the teens from the 90’s or 00’s, who have now grown up.
I also read that if FF15 does incredibly well, such as beat all the other games in the franchise in terms of popularity, then Square-Enix might think of remaking FF7. Now, fans are informing one another that even if FF15 isn’t as great, just pretend it is and create hype up about it like it’s the best game in the series so that Square-Enix can remake FF7. Hahahahahaha! Smart! xD
Although, Square is a company that fans like to complain about due to lack of great video game releases in the past couple of years, I’m actually very thankful to them for creating these wonderful and memorable games. They are part of my early teen years and were my little “escape” from the useless stuff that high school brings. I never ever felt the need to fit in, but just be myself and do my own thing and center my life around my interests and hobbies. When I was myself, I also found people that were themselves too, and it’s those people that I know that I can always trust. They’re my friends even ’til this day no matter how far apart we are!
Moreover, the beauty of role-playing games, such as Final Fantasy, enabled me to create a beautiful world of my own in my mind as well… where ships can fly and there are islands in the sky. It allowed me to be more creative. The best is when the theme of one of these games can relate to our world today… with the greedy in power and the young and “powerless” wanting change in a society that’s constantly trying to bombard us into being “sheep” (and unfortunately, there are young people driven by desires such as fame that work to fulfill the greedy people’s agenda as well). It’s not until everyone frees their mind from worldly desires, will we ever truly be free.
