I have spent minutes upon hours in the PlayStation 4 share menu and other things like it trying to tap a perfect angle and timing for a screenshot in many of my own games. Maybe that's why it's weird to me that a feature like Final Fantasy XV's photography mechanic isn't a common feature in most, if not all, new games.

Final Fantasy XV Feels Familiar and Foreign at Once [NYCC 2016]

Square Enix’s flagship Final Fantasy series has undergone many evolutions in the last 20 years, but there are still some hallmarks expected from a game in the core franchise. Final Fantasy XV does have some of these familiar elements: dudes with hair reaching varying degrees of spikyness; a grand, high-stakes story involving a prince undertaking an epic journey; there’s even a grumpy old man named Cid. But these familiar details are juxtaposed with some pretty big departures from the formula. That’s not necessary a bad thing, as I discovered during my hands-on session with FFXV earlier this week. If anything, the demo showed me that the long-awaited next entry in the series is a lot of fun if you’re willing to let go of nostalgia and embrace the new.
