Final Fantasy XV

A magical royal boy band go on a road trip and get very distracted.

I’ve played all of the mainline Final Fantasy titles since 7, but they felt like they went downhill (and lost coherence) after 8, but this is very much a return to form. Taking a lot of design cues from more modern games and its MMO siblings, they’ve come up with something that feels more like an RPG-focussed take on the now common open-world games, with simply tons to do. While it drags in parts, and the story could be clearer, this is a welcome return to form.
