I didn't get a chance to post this yesterday because GAF was down, but the way I felt as this game was being announced was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Obviously there are other exciting things in life, but this felt weird and different. Good, obviously (obviously). Euphoric. I was incredulous. I sat in my chair mouthing NO NO NO NO NO until I eventually just stood up and watched the entire thing. I was clutching my phone so tight that I ended up buffing a little of the polish off the back.
It's been so long. I've wanted this for so long. I can't even explain what this game means to me. I don't know how to explain without being sappy or uneconomical with words, so I guess I won't try.
The way they flashed the senior staff's names on the screen with the voice over and the music...this still doesn't feel real. Now that it's finally happened, I can't even understand how I felt the way I felt before.
Thank you to everyone at Square Enix for finally making this happen.
