Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition isn't the perfect PC port by any means. It has its quirks, but the advantages over the console editions wipes those out in my mind. Not only does it have all the content available on console to this point at a reasonable price, but it also has mod tools coming and Steam Workshop support already implemented. It seems like the team behind the game, and Square Enix's leadership will continue to support and promote this game into the future too, so there's plenty of goodies in store down the line.
All in all, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the best console-to-pc port that Square Enix has produced to date. On top of that, the Royal Edition is the best version of Final Fantasy XV – so far, and even if only just. The route taken to get here has been a bumpy one, needlessly long with and perhaps without the most efficient direction, but the journey here has left us at a better place than we were at starting out. We know that there’s still several miles of road left to go though, so it seems like this trip has not quite found its end just yet.
The visual improvements here show that the Windows Edition is the definitive version of Final Fantasy 15: it has never looked better, and mod support suggests an exciting future ahead for the game. It's a shame that FF15 doesn't recapture the depth of the series’ past entries, and games like The Witcher 3 and Divinity: Original Sin 2 really highlight the weaknesses in the sidequests here. This road trip, though, is still well worth taking.
