I don't care what anyone says. True FF is about menus that give options like fight, magic, run, item. All players should be fully controllable. The traditional ff theme music like the crystal theme and victory theme should be there. FF is ruined. I bought every FF until 13. Yes, even 12 gave some respect to tradition. 13 killed it. FF15 may be a good game on it's own, but it is not FF.It doesn't deserve the name! Oh, and I didn't even finish 13 and got rid of it.
Nothing was killed. The series evolved over time while you didn't. It's no big deal. You get to replay those older games if you have them.
Taking away the freedom to play all your characters is evolving? No, it is devolving.
