GC - "These enemies are actually taken from old FF games and you’d be surprised to see how far we have come when it comes to the visual style."
*gasp* Maybe this IS a Final Fantasy game! /sarcasm Wake me up when Final Fantasy is Final Fantasy again.
What do you not like about Final Fantasy XV? It seems pretty decent so far.
Action-RPG <- Not Final Fantasy.
just came back from work and i have 15 different tabs open, my brain hurts
Cars! Why are there cars in this FF game? What ever happened to the airships? I thought transportation was based on airships, not land vehicles. FFS this isn't Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row.
Cars/Buggies whatever you want to call them have been in most of the 'sci-fi' final fantasy games (ie. 7, 8). There was an interview with I think Nomura like 5 years ago and he said there would be airships and an overworld (What we see in the trailer is probably part of the overworld)
"What do you not like about Final Fantasy XV?" The development time for one. That it was announced and is following in the wake of two other projects: FF13 and FF14. And no matter what you want to say about FF14: a Realm Reborn - I'm taking about FF14. At the very least, its just impossible for some to get excited about this game because of what's Square has been doing for an entire console gen.
@kalkano I understand what you are saying. I for one am a big fan of ffx's system. That being said if something akin to bravely default hits consoles and ffxv ends up being similar to kingdom hearts with more depth then my thirst will be slated. Persona 5 will probably be enough jrpg for quite a long time.
I stopped playing after FFX cause i loved the Turn Based gameplay the action thing really doesn't do it for me...
"Cars! Why are there cars in this FF game? What ever happened to the airships? I thought transportation was based on airships, not land vehicles. FFS this isn't Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row." What? Plenty of FF games have land vehicles. Just off the top of my head...In FFVII you drive Cloud's motorbike and a four-wheel buggy. In FFIV you can ride in tanks. And in FFVIII you can ride the train and hire rental cars to move across the world map: http://finalfantasy.wikia.c...
People bitch about FF not changing. People bitch about FF when it does change. No winning here.
@Pozzle: Cloud's bike in FF7 was a mini-game. Likewise tanks where a thing in FF4, or aside from a few environmental blocks, cars, trains and the four-wheel buggy weren't needed. With the FF15 trailer we're seeing a luxury city car being used cross country like a Range Rover. How does that make any sense? I think what people wanted to see was further progression from airships and travel from FF9. Seeing as well as interacting with other airships. Having special air-only encounters. having to customize and upgrade your ship to get through certain obstacles or areas. Like needing more powerful engines in order to get through or go over a wind swept canyon. The problem with modern gaming is that it only single level or perspective whereas some early games had multiple perspectives. Like the differences between an over-world dungeon or town.
@elninels: If they brought Bravely Default to consoles, that would be great. But, the industry has this logical fallacy where they think they need to dial the production value back to 0 if the game is turn-based. The reality is, they lose sales by dialing back the production value, not by making the game turn-based.
Just because it's an Action RPG doesn't mean that it's any less of a Final Fantasy game. Should we consider FFVII not a real FF game because it had a timed based battle system? That ideology is very moronic imho.
It's not Final Fantasy... but it looks very cool. Besides, it's open world and it seems that you can drive a car in a very awesome highway. Makes me very excited for the game.
ff viii let you rent cars and drive around in world map. ffxii allowed more free roam and enemies on screen with no transition. i understand what you and most people are saying, but final fantasy isnt really about replicating past games.
I know. Finally we may get a real next next gen ff game. I know they have it in them. I just know it. There are amazing things they can add and new things they can try, but not at the expense of what we live. Add it on, don't replace .
You lack some serious intelligence man. This is more "Final Fantasy" than any in the last 15 years. And cars have been in FF before smart one. And by the way, action RPG is not the same as an action game. This game is clearly not like DMC in any way. When's the last time you ran across a Skyrim looking field in Metal Gear Rising or Bayonetta? That's what I thought dipsh*t. I hate these f***in' douches that come here for attention that their parents clearly didn't give them, which I and others inevitably give them by correcting their misinformed and idiotic comments...
I know! He is going to every article of the game saying it's not a real Final Fantasy, it sounds like he is going crazy trying to convince himself that it ain't when it is. If he really feels that way he should be secure and be done with the game. I know what he likes Bravery Default, lol, he is going to be playing that when we are playing this beast, fing love it. I remember someone told him to play Persona 4 because that is turn based and he was like "ewwww, I don't like Persona" You can't win with that guy.
Amen! That said, now i can wait another 3 years for XV. It looks like they are doing a great game. Hope that demo gets to be bigger than XIII's was.
I hate blind defensive loyalty in the face of multiple examples of bad performance. Somehow it didn't matter that FF13 was the game it was, two sequels were made to make up for it. FF14 was mess with expensive emphasis put in all the wrong places? Doesn't matter, a Realm Reborn fixed all/most of the problems at twice the production price! 3rd Birthday... If FF15 is good, then its good. But right now to many former fans of the series who are still interested in the series - Square needs to prove that they can deliver before those former fans risk becoming fans again. You and the other faithful telling us to shut up and/or f**k off, not helping anyone. Negative opinions aside, we still represent sales. Sales which Square - and you - want. So how about dealing with our opinions and comments, because we have as much right to them as you.
You need to move on with the times. There are still airships and classic themes final fantasy has never stuck to one style and one battle system.
Action-RPG <- Not Final Fantasy Funny you say that. The Tales series also started out as a turn-based series. Then it was switched to a real time battle system which turned out to be BETTER for the series going forward. Moral of the story: A single game mechanic does NOT define a game or series.
"The Tales series also started out as a turn-based series." No it didn't. Are you on crack? The first game was Tales of Phantasia, on SNES. <- Action-RPG. There hasn't been a single turn-based game in the series.
I love the game more every time I see something new about it. That gameplay was phenomenal! The music! The mechanics! The character designs! Everything is just so epic.
Im positive I will buy it, but damn, there is something about the "Japanese" character design along with those beasts and setting that seems incoherent to me.
i think its been a long time since japanese developers have produced a game so good looking. thats probably what makes it feel wierd.
i love the game
Strange looking but cool. Im interested
Even though the land car thing doesn't make sense, I got to say that this game looks awesome visually and gameplay looks top notch!
It makes perfect sense, it's in modern (or at least somewhat modern) times.
Its not the first time FF have cars? VII and VIII had them, pretty sure they were in X too, not playable but still.
I am sorry that people misinterpret what I am trying to say. This is the future, so I thought flying cars would be the norm, not something that looks like it came out today.
we probably dont know much about its technology, so land car is pretty normal. also having different types of vehicles/transport was also used to linit areas. cars obviously cant go up mountains, chocobos can jump, ships/hovercraft go on water, airships flies but cant park everywhere. also, whos to say this car will not turn into a boat or a flying car?
This and Final Fantasy 0 are really shaping up nice. The last FF I enjoyed was 12 on PS2 but they completely lost me with all the different iterations of 13. These might just pull me back in.
Looks better than any other Final Fantasy as of recent, looks like the next step forward for the series, the kind FF13 should have been.
I HAVE A SEMI-LIMP BISCUIT RIGHT NOW!!!
Good trailer!! but they have not shown the acutal live gameplay to motivate the gamers yet!
What do you mean? Most of this trailer was gameplay.
What the hell are you talking about? They showed a lot of gameplay in the trailer.
to others, that replied. gear specifically mentioned actual live gameplay. those in trailer was obviously not live due to it being a trailer. the trailer is just picking out the best bits. a live gameplay will show us different sort of details, such as traversing, animations, pop ins if they exist, the pace of the game. etc...
To old FF fans, it's nice to see them back in the game again. Here's hoping we get some decently proportioned Moogles as well. Man they've been hideous post FF IX.
His comment was bad enough but your one was just childish and plain ridiculous ans silly. It saddens me that 9 people clicked agree.
cant wait 2015 right?
I think that tough looking male protagonists in new JRPG games are a thing of the past now . Still looking forward to this game.
I'm hoping we meet a Tonberry.
You shouldn't. The first thing the Tonberry is going to say is "Knife to meet you." Probably the last thing you hear too.
I guess I'm just old and miss the old feel and style of the original games. Namely 1 4 6 and 7. The fantasy land they created back then were like no other. Part medieval part steam punk with just the slightest dash of futuristicness all while feeling just different enough and familiar at the same time. Pieced together with airships land cruisers and boats in a giant world map with different towns to visit. Some so hidden you never found them but could hold amazing secrets and cinematic summon spells. Awe to be 12 again. I won't judge this one until I play it myself but boy did ffxiii leave a bad taste in my mouth. No sense of wonderment and exploration at all.
i've loved most of the Final Fantasy series, but the setting direction is a little off-putting. Also i kinda miss having a bit more of a balance between male and female characters. So far female characters have been relegated to a small cutscene here and there and don't look to be ever a part of your party. I'd rather have a more balanced dynamic of characters rather than samey looking guys. I'm not writing it off, it just doesn't strike me as a day one purchase like the others.
well, all of you being a hater on this game is for one reason it's name is final fantasy and it's action rpg guess what,who cares the game is a masterpiece ff is all about the story, every ff is different from each other that's why it's "fantasy" it is a fantasy world i personally like the setting (yes ,with cars) and the characters,everything bow
for the past 8 years its been saying in every trailer its been saying a fantasy BASED ON REALITY. and in the older trailer he's been in a car already I don't understand why people cant get this through there head, no one wants to go back to it being dungeons and dragons and cast this spell and become a paladin that, now that's what's a thing of the past. also you guys complain about a car yet cloud rode a motorcycle and there were cars and trains in ff 7..... so okay then
I swear, anything people don't like is "a thing of the past". Stop making excuses for people liking things that you don't.
