"I've never experienced war myself," Hajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy Type-0, told me in an interview this past January.

Final Fantasy XV is playable right now and that seems impossible. Even just as Episode Duscae, the small demo included with the newly released Final Fantasy Type-0, it feels like a phantom.

I just used Sony's newest version of the PlayStation 4 virtual reality headset, Project Morpheus. Rather, I should say that I just faced down a burly, British would-be-torturer before being whisked away to a first-person gunfight in a well-appointed London manor.
