"Nintendo is known for having fantastic franchises. These include Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Pokemon, Fire Emblem, and Donkey Kong, just to name a few! Over the years, almost every Nintendo franchise has received new installments and ports to new consoles. This brings up the question: out of every single Nintendo game, which ones have sold the best?"
With the impeding release of Final Fantasy XV I think it worth looking at what exactly JRPGs can offer now. I mean, they have long since passed their PlayStation 2 heyday, but does that mean they have nothing left to offer? Recent releases – even Final Fantasy games – have felt lacking that extra jazz of previous generations. Is it that the stories aren’t as engaging? Has the combat been forced to evolve to a point where it’s no longer as enjoyable?
