After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Square Enix Knows The Golden Era Of Final Fantasy Is Over

Posted on Friday, September 7 @ 08:49:46 PST by

The above image was spotted at the Final Fantasy party at PAX Prime last week, showing that Square Enix knows that the "Golden Age" of Final Fantasy is nothing more than a memory now. 

While the 8- and 16-bit "Old School" generation had many classics, it was on the PlayStation and PS2 where the series really spread its wings, reaching mass market appeal.

And while the franchise still appeals to a wide audience, that same audience knows that things just aren't the same. Square Enix refers to this as generation three, or the "Modern Age" of Final Fantasy. Everyone else refers to it as "what the fuck is this shit?"

I grew up with Final Fantasy, and while XIII and its spin-off weren't the worst games, they certainly didn't live up to the series' namesake. Even just seeing the image of Lightning (I won't even look at FFXIV), makes me reminsce about them good old days—the Golden Era.

Let's take a moment to reflect on Final Fantasy, and say a silent prayer that the franchise may one day return to glory. Share your most memorable Final Fantasy moment in the comments below.
