30 years of Final Fantasy

30 years of Final Fantasy
From TechCrunch - December 18, 2017

After more than 10 years of development (under several names at that), Final Fantasy hit the PlayStation 4 to huge sales and a starkly mixed reception. The action-focused battle system, large and unique world, and drop-dead-gorgeous graphics were frequently praised. But the incoherent plot and haphazard structure of the game frustrated nearly everyone; it was as if half the game, from characters to settings to narration, had simply been cut at random. Add to that later chapters that removed the players freedom and the game, despite its many strengths, left a bad taste in everyones mouth.
