With Square-Enix's Shinji Hashimoto teasing at a new "Final Fantasy" title coming to the recently unveiled Playstation 4, it's time to take stock of the 25 year old series, figure out what works, what doesn't, what trends to continue, and what to (hopefully) nip in the bud.
Here are ten ways that the latest installment to the classic franchise can improve upon the series, taking hints from current, successful games, and looking back at what worked in the past, to hopefully breathe some life into the sinking series. If we're not going to hear anything regarding "Final Fantasy Versus XIII," maybe we can hope for some innovation in a "Final Fantasy XV," or at least a shift in direction.
Please feel free to comment on your own things you'd like to see improved on with the next "Final Fantasy" game. "Final Fantasy" is a lot of things to a lot of people, and I'd love to hear what you think works, or doesn't.
