Final Fantasy Characters Started Talking
Final Fantasy X was arguably the best Final Fantasy of the PlayStation 2 generation. It came out before Squaresoft became Square Enix, and it still retained a lot of traditional Final Fantasy elements.
However, before we ever had the chance to put the game disc into our PS2s, a huge controversy erupted over Square’s choice to include voice acting. Until that moment, Final Fantasy had only ever told its stories through silent text boxes, the method that was used ever since the original NES title. However, Final Fantasy X used in-game cutscenes, complete with a full voice acting cast. Despite the original controversy, fans loved the change, and Square Enix has been providing fully voiced characters ever since.
