    Re: General Square Enix Thread II

    Would actually put Heavensward and Stormbringers in contention for my favorite FFs now.

    It's probably easier to list the games that never crack favorite lists, which would be 2, 13, and probably...

    I could expound on this more, but I just finished Shadowbringers after a three-month power-through of FFXIV and it's the best FF experience since at least X. Story, music, character are all top in...

    It is very, very good. Still has some annoyances--so much text!--but the central hub island is such a better version of what they tried to do in the first game.

    3D World was also pretty good, tbh, as well as 3D Land.

    It's basically going to be 2/3 of the base-game in terms of new content, so it's fair.
