It’s been 18 grueling hours. I’ve stopped playing for six or more months….twice. And now, finally, I realize that this game is actually fun.
Final Fantasy XII can be a divisive game in the series. For the first time, you didn’t directly control all of your characters, instead setting up commands and priorities for them to follow. The game is being re-released this summer, available July 17 (pre-order for PS4 on Amazon).

The game launched with a monthly subscription that has since been dismissed, and will be re-releasing this summer as a free-to-play action RPG titled Secret World Legends.
If you’ve never had the thrill of grabbing the idol and pointlessly rolling a d6 for hours and occasionally chanting “fireball yourself”, you’ve never played Fireball Island.
