I Think Final Fantasy Versus XIII Is A Figment Of My Imagination
I've been having this recurring dream for years now.
It started with what appeared to be an incredibly impressive CGI trailer back in 2007. And as time went on, I'd catch glimpses of this mystery - and apparently imaginary - title in my sleep...I have been asleep every time I've seen it, haven't I?
Every now and then, something in the real world tries to prove that such a project exists. Like for instance, the occasional word or two from Square Enix hinting that a game called "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" would be "officially unveiled" soon. I think I was having an out-of-body experience when I heard this very statement in January of 2011. But that was over a year ago now and the dream has lessened in frequency and intensity. I must've been dreaming over the past four and a half years, because it's clear that no such game actually exists.
There was something about fantasy becoming reality after Final Fantasy XIII-2 hit store shelves. But that was back in January and here it is, March...and nothing. Nothing in the physical, real world at any rate. It still lives on in my memories and wishes but like all memories and wishes, they don't exist in the here and now; memories involve things that have already occurred (and there's no going back) and wishes typically remain wishes and nothing more. Sadly, I may have to face the brutal reality that I've been suffering from random bouts of delusion (and illusion), and there's no such thing as "Final Fantasy Versus XIII."
I would strongly suggest that you do the same, lest your sanity is threatened. It's safer to make the admission.
