It was a nostalgic yet frustrating chapter in gaming history, as JRPGs began to penetrate the western market like never before. FF7 set a benchmark that continues to define the genre, so much so that Square Enix is set to spend several decades remaking the damn thing. And because Im a desperate fangirl, I cant bloody wait.
But now, things are much easier. Relaxed relationships between major console manufacturers and publishers mean classic adventures once bound by a singular platform can be played by millions more. If you told me Id be enjoying Final Fantasy X and its fabulous sequel in 4K on Xbox One X just a few years ago, Id have laughed in your face.
