Welcome Back, Trainer
Part 4: The Black/White Album
For the first decade-and-half of Pokemon’s existence, it was not a franchise about deep storytelling. The games were meant to be an escapist fantasy in which the player could control an avatar of themselves. Rather than deliver a clear or compelling message the games were meant to convey the joy of exploration, the excitement of personal growth, and the exhilaration of writing your own legend.

Final Fantasy XV Review: A Great Adventure Held Back from Greatness

I drive towards the quest marker in my custom blue Regalia. While Ignis drives cautiously through the open country, Noctis sits out of his set on the back of the car to get a better look at the surroundings. Galdiolus starts reading a book and Prompto leans over the side of the car, looking a little restless. All the while, Motoya’s Cave from Final Fantasy is playing over the radio. When we reach our destination, we kill a few monsters and go to turn in our quest. All is good until night falls and Ignis states that it is dangerous to drive at night. In my hubris, I scoff at Ignis and had Noctis take the wheel. Not five minutes into the drive, a massive daemon crawls up from the ground and sends us running. We struggle through the forest until finding a camp spot. While watching the level up screen, the four friends sat together playing a cell phone game with each other. It is moments like these that really helped get me invested in the world of Final Fantasy XV.
