The FF series has the same cycle as Sonic to me. I will judge for myself when I get my hands on it. Trusting big-name sites and YT's who are paid and would be blacklisted saying something negative is not a great indicator of how good it might actually be or bad. But FF16 is pretty much the series' last chance with me to impress. 13 and 15 got great previews and reviews and they were fucking trash. Same with FF7R. Only giving FF16 a shot as it finally returns the series to Fantasy without Sci-Fi.
