Wanna say im not a fan of xv, made the mistake of playing the remake and thought all the games were like this.
Oh yes!-yes!-yes! That one is my favorite one
(so far it is, I only finished VII and IX)
Got a 1/3 of the way into XIII, will not go back and try to continue cause I hated XIII
I've played 1-5 and I would probably say 5 is my favorite in teams of both story and mechanics.
