The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


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.
