The Long Wait for Final Fantasy XV

Do any of you remember 2006? It was certainly a different time. I was a fifteen-year-old high school student. Now I'm twenty-five with aspirations of becoming a homeowner. I have matured and seen life with a more adult perspective. It's funny how much I have changed with this past decade. And now, what was originally announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII (renamed Final Fantasy XV in 2013) is a mere eight days from release. Eight agonizing more days....
I have the Ultimate Collector's Edition, hardback strategy guide, and season pass DLC (my first DLC that I've ever bought outside of Super Smash Bros. Wii U DLC) paid off and now I'm just waiting. I anticipate tears. I anticipate joy. But most of all, I anticipate a great Final Fantasy experience. The concept of the game (a modern world set in a fantasy backdrop based on reality) has always had me hooked. The prospect that Final Fantasy would return to form with a true open world, flyable airships, chocobos, and so on with an addition of a Kingdom Hearts-esque combat system sounded like a dream game to me. Not to mention, again, the modern fantasy world is something I hadn't really seen before.
This is a video from a channel called Dark Pixel Gaming. They discuss a lot about Final Fantasy as well as other RPGs and games. Needless to say, I enjoy their content. Check out the video and share your story about the this damn ten-year wait we've all had to endure, haha!
I plan to write a review of this game. If anyone is interested in possibly doing a collaboration, do let me know.
