8 - awesome, 9 - awesome, 10 - awesome, 12 - not for me, 13 - garbage, 15 - garbage. These are all the mainline FF games I ever played. And so far, it is 50/50. Which does not sound so bad. But 10 was in 2001. Which means I did not play any good FF games in 22 years. That is horrible.

As Leynos said: this is their last chance with me. If 16 is trash, I will still buy 17 as long as it turns out great. But I will not get hyped for 17 and I will not buy anything FF ever again with only watching 2 or 3 reviews, so as to not get spoiled.

And I don't even know if I can trust many reviewers on FF. Because I also agree with Leynos that FF13 and FF15 deserved far worse reviews than what they got. Is it nostalgia? Are reviewers giving FF a pass because of misplaced sentimentality? 14 got wrecked though. So I really don't get it.

Between FF7 and FF10 there were only 4 years. And they managed to put out 4 FFs with some of the best video game stories ever told and some of the most iconic, beautiful art and the most inventive fantasy elements ever. In just 4, 5 years. And than they take 22 years to create the next 4 mainline single player FF games. And up to 16 everything was filled with plotholes, lame, flat uninteresting characters, boring, illogical stories, and writing so bad as if Kojima played them like a fiddle. Dies not bode well for 16. But I heard good things frim FF14. So who knows.
