Game Review: Final Fantasy Origins

My obsession with playing every numerical Final Fantasy title continued with the release of Final Fantasy Origins! This compilation was a must have for a few reasons, first and foremost it would be the first time Final Fantasy II would be released in the west and with this compilation I now can say I have played and completed FF, FFII, FFIV,FFV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFX, FFXI, and FF Tactics!
As with FF Chronicals and FF Anthology the two games in FF Origins come with updated graphics, new cinematics, beastiary, art galleries that include some fantastic work from Yoshitaka Amano.
The games are 15+ years old and for newer gamers that will be an instant turn off, I for one look at these as classic games in video game history that are worth playing to understand and appreciate our hobby and especially if your a fan of the Final Fantasy franchise.
