It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.
As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.
Day 10: Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster Collection
Chances are you’ve already played Final Fantasy I through VI through a couple of times. You’ve probably bought each of them more than once, too, if you’re like us and a fan of the series. And yet, here they are again, and one again they’re the prefect games to play through this Christmas. Like a favourite Christmas-themed film or piece of music, they fit like a well-loved glove and are a pure nostalgia trip.
The thing is that thanks to some simple quality of life improvements and a quality art style, these are the definitive way of playing each game. Sure we would have loved the option to play the games exactly as they were originally released, but as a second-best option, there’s nothing wrong with this collection at all.
