I played Final Fantasy XV for about three hours last week and didn’t hate it. Actually, I really enjoyed it.
It was also the first time I’ve really played a Final Fantasy game. I’ve dabbled in the less acclaimed Final Fantasy X on PS2, and the more obscure DS title, Ring of Fates, but I’ve never dedicated any series time to the franchise. Turn-based combat usually puts me off as I tend to opt for more action-oriented, real-time combat.
With that said, between the combat mechanics and the excellently established narrative of FF XV, I suddenly have a lot of interest in the long-awaited fifteenth instalment.
