I am well aware that the PlayStation 4 comes out on Friday. I'll have mine on that day, like many others.
And yet, as much as I want to try out games like Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack , I find myself caring far more about a current-generation title. Actually, a current-gen remastering of older titles: Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD .
There was a time when I'd play and replay every new Final Fantasy that came my way. But that hasn't happened in a while; although I completed FFXII, FFXIII and FFXIII-2, I never really had any inclination to go back and play them. At least FFXII was a full-fledged RPG; I just didn't like the story enough to replay it and besides, I did absolutely everything on my first play-through. I put in 120 hours and took down Yiazmat, and I figured that was plenty.
But FFX and X-2 are fantastic entries that I always look forward to playing, even though I haven't touched either in many years. I so miss the old-school turn-based style, and I loved the combat mechanics in both games. I never did replay X-2 and I think I only got halfway through a replay of X (got sidetracked with one of the GTAs, I believe), so I'm definitely itching to enjoy and appreciate both again. Is it wrong that I want to do that more than I want to play any of the PS4 games I'll get?
It may be wrong and yet, it just feels so, so right.
