Something that is interesting to note is that the two Final Fantasy-related titles coming out this year appear to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. We have the wildly hyped Final Fantasy XIII, which is the first numbered entry on the Playstation 3. It is undoubtedly going to push the series (and the hardware) to new technological heights. On the other hand, The 4 Light Warriors: Final Fantasy Gaiden for the Nintendo DS seems to be a complete leap back into the past.

And now for your own thoughts...
In regards to Final Fantasy XIV, would you like Square Enix to push the envelope forward, focusing on creating a technological marvel that attempts to revolutionize the Final Fantasy series for the current era of gaming? Would you rather they push it back towards a more nostalgic era, instead aiming to give new life to what they felt the Final Fantasy series always should have been? Which aspects would you like to preserve, and which other ones do you feel need to be let go?
