It took more than a year, but the good, good anime boys’ roadtrip tour finally made a stop on PC. Have Steam reviewers accepted the sprawling, uneven fishing simulator in spite of its flaws, though? (Spoiler: Yes.)

Given Square Enix’s not-so-great history with PC ports, we breathed a sigh of relief when it became apparent that Final Fantasy XV’s PC version (mostly) runs like a dream. It also includes a load of DLC, some new story scenes, and a lore encyclopedia to help people make sense of the game’s labyrinthine backstory. At its core, though, Final Fantasy XV is still two games: 1) an open-world RPG about likable guys with great hair shenaniganing around and taking bad selfies and 2) all the confusing stuff that happens after that. Steam users are digging it! Well, mostly.

I’m absolutely adoring the game so far. I’ve been waiting for this for practically a decade (I skipped the console version), after the massive disappointment that FF13 was. I don’t care that the story is shallow or whatever - I’m 22 hours in and still on Chapter 3, so it doesn’t really matter much to me. I also thought Kingsglaive was pretty cool, so there’s that. I’ve been running around locked at Level 1 (with the item that keeps you from leveling up - it vaguely balances out the badass DLC weapons I can’t keep myself from using), fighting enemies 30 levels higher than me, snapping pictures, doing sidequests, and a fuck ton of fishing. It’s just plain fun and damn pretty at the same time. I personally could not be happier.
