Final Fantasy XV Director Tetsuya Nomura Impressed by Titanfall, Watch_Dogs, Battlefield 4, MGS5

Legendary Director Tetsuya Nomura Inpressed many at E3 with Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, but what games impressed Tetsuya Nomura himself? Quite a few, as he said during an interview for the Japanese gaming site Dengeki Online. Interestingly, none of the titles he mentioned was a RPG. (Battlefield 4, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PC, PS3, PS4, Tetsuya Nomura, TitanFall, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Lol, just because he makes RPGs doesn't mean he can't be impressed by other genres. :]
Abriael  +   501d ago
I don't think anyone said he can't. Actually we know he loves shooters :D
Godmars290  +   501d ago
Its when he tries to copy and implement features that he sees into his games that's the problem.
Abriael  +   501d ago
If every time someone took inspiration from other games in this industry was a "problem", it would have already imploded.
Septic  +   501d ago
Well said Abriael.

He is free to do so and you never know, final fantasy could benefit from importing the better elements of other genres into it.

As long as his games don't become musicals.
Abriael  +   501d ago
@lopez_josue: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy was damn good though :P

@Abriael, @Septic

like FFXIII benefited from copying Call of Duty's linearity right?
Qrphe  +   500d ago
@wishing

If CoD had influenced FFXIII in any way it would have had multiplayer. Its linearity had no effect on it.
Need4Game  +   500d ago
Final Fantasy XV will be an Action-MMORPG

the Game Development is so expensive, it can no longer be a Single Player Game.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   501d ago
I was impressed by everything Square-Enix had to offer at E3.
Abriael  +   501d ago
Same here, they had the best E3 in ages.
LordMe  +   501d ago
If Type-0 would have been announced for US and EU release it would have been perfect!
Abriael  +   501d ago
I'm starting to doubt we'll ever see that one.. :(
Alexious  +   501d ago
There are some great games coming up, for sure.
Belking  +   501d ago
I think Titan Fall impressed almost everyone who witnessed it.
miyamoto  +   501d ago
as huge MS Gundam: Battle Operation on PS3 fan I agree.

Titanfall is like Killzone3 and Halo and Armored Core rolled into one.

Freaking Fantastic!

I am sure this game will be a huge hit in Japan. Is XBOne launching in Japan?

Anyways there is PC and the rumored PS4 version coming.
FantasyStar  +   500d ago
I think Respawn would've done better if they got a hold on the Gundam license and ran with that. Why reinvent the wheel?
rhap  +   501d ago
No wonder FF is crap now, even the game directors and producers are into action games.
NihonjinChick  +   501d ago
Square has always been into action games. Play some of their earlier PS1 games.

Parasite Eve 1 and 2, Threads of Fate, Bushido Blade etc..
-Gespenst-  +   501d ago
Don't forget both the Musashi games, also Nier and Dissidia.
AdmiralSnake  +   501d ago
Yeah...right, because the Directors and Producers being into the action drama is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD, oh the agony....
j-blaze  +   501d ago
Crisis Core was an action rpg and it's one of the best FFs, same with Kingdom Hearts...FF15 trailer was simply stunning, gameplay, graphics, characters everything!
j-blaze  +   501d ago
btw he's a fan of MGS and DMC
NihonjinChick  +   501d ago
Who doesn't love MGS and DMC?
kalkano  +   501d ago
I thought Toriyama was the only one trying to turn FF into a shooter...

Nomura, welcome to my list of SE employees that need to be fired.

There is no hope for turn-based RPGs.
NihonjinChick  +   501d ago
Action/non-turn based RPGs are nothing new. Square has been doing this for years now.
kalkano  +   500d ago
But not with Final Fantasy.

Rule #1 for ANY series: DON'T CHANGE THE GENRE!
Azurekite  +   501d ago
Yea lets fire the best character designer at SE. You sir are an idiot.
wishingW3L  +   501d ago
his art is nothing to brag about though. Not even close at being at Amano's level.

In fairness, Nomura looks for more interesting things in these kinds of games. He directed developers of XV to study how 3rd person shooters generate tension and mood and how they 'feel' and how the action feels as a result rather than their game mechanics and control schemes and conventions. I'd imagine he has a similar approach to evaluating these games.

Being turn based isnt the main thing of FF,the gameplay changes with each FF,any fan knows that.
CrossingEden  +   494d ago
UH OH, UH OH, run for the hills toriyama, random internet guy number 329424836417916416934712496476 4648767264 on n4g added you to his list of people who need to be fired, seriously, get over yourself, there are plenty of turn based rpgs on the phone, its not that great of a genre anymore
kalkano  +   494d ago
That's because it's on the phone...
CrossingEden  +   494d ago
pretty sure no one cares -_-
-Gespenst-  +   501d ago
MGSV = Good taste.

Watch Dogs = Impressive game, but good taste? Not sure.

The other two = bad taste.
wishingW3L  +   501d ago
I find it funny that he was impressed by Battlefield 4 because the game looks like more of the same.
Irishguy95  +   500d ago
You have terrible taste

"It’s impressive that it’s made by a Japanese developer." --- Ouch. Guess he thinks the West is whoopin' some ass lately.
