Which also means that it has been 15 years since the last good original Final Fantasy title came out. If only we could have predicted this before the series began its long, continuous decline:

Agreed. This is the last one I got really into.

FF XII is criminally underrated. I know it continues to be fairly polarizing among the FF fanbase but I thoroughly enjoyed it as it was truly the last masterpiece of the PS2 era.

I spent hundreds of hours on the original and again on the Zodiac Age version on my PS4. Beautiful graphics, wonderful soundtrack, compelling storyline and generally good voice acting, fast paced combat system and the truly unique gambit system. FF XII is amazing.

15 years... time sure feels to be flying fast, but simultaneously FF game output has slowed down to an arduous subsistence after they reached the pinnacle with this release.

One of my favorite games of all time, if the not the very best, with hundreds of play hours spent in the incredible world of Ivalice with both the original and TZA.

I truly hope this isn't "my Final Fantasy" and they'll recapture the form one day, but SE's track record and obsession with the business side of things is not boding well for the future.

Very underrated entry and one that truly was ahead of its time in terms of many gameplay mechanics. Sad that they discarded it all for what they did with XIII.
Still love this game. It's right up there among my favourite FFs of all time.

Final Fantasy 12 is a fine game indeed. After that though - it goes downhill. Have we really seen the best of Final Fantasy now? Part 13 is slow and boring, 15 is average and 16 doesn't look great either. What do you guys/girls think? Happy new year btw!
