PSXE Poll Update: Final Fantasy Isn't Lagging, It's Dead
Woah. Despite all the criticism floating around the Internet concerning Final Fantasy, we didn't realize favor had fallen so far so damn fast...
When we wanted to gauge reader interest for Final Fantasy XIII-2, we learned that some are really looking forward to the highly anticipated sequel. But the majority simply said they aren't interested at all; in fact, the franchise is dead. It's just no longer the series the veteran fans have known and loved, so no matter what Square Enix delivers with FFXIII-2, a lot of people are going to be skeptical or just plain annoyed. That's unfortunate. But at the same time, we can't say this hate is entirely undeserved, as the franchise in question has switched gears this generation, and hardcore role-playing fans have been disappointed.
Maybe the high-definition overhaul of Final Fantasy X will help to restore some faith in Square-Enix. But as for new entries go... Oh well, let's move on to some real RPGs: Dark Souls and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Oh, and let's toss in the recently released White Knight Chronicles 2, just because it absolutely qualifies as a solid, engrossing role-playing experience. Which of these three do you expect to take up most of your time? Even if you plan on playing them all, which title gets the nod for the top priority slot?
