There’s a significant portion of the videogame audience that is getting older, and Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata knows it.
Thank god, hopefully it results in less narratives geared towards the pre-teen/early teen market.
People who were 10-15 and liked a certain game.....Are now 25-35 years old. ^ THEY are the audience who still likes that IP from that time. They are the ones who will buy it. THEY aren't 10-15 years old anymore, but THEY are the core audience for that specific IP. IP's need to do a better job of growing with their Gamers, or at least make it so much fun that nobody can argue.....EX: Smash Brothers....<-- Will never get old. * The Audience for a lot of Pokemon games isn't 8 & 9 year old kids....IT's 25,35,45 year old adults who grew up with it. KIDS have their own new IP's that they are into. * Also, just because a game has a colorful art style doesn't mean it's "for kids". * I think FF's problem is more than just the audience. LAST gen we should have had 3 DIFFERENT FF games, with 3 separate casts of characters and 3 separate stories. EX: FF7,FF8,FF9 all on PS1, all released one year after another. THEY MADE IT WORK THEN.....they can do it now. They reason they say games take longer is because they focus on they useless crap nobody wants and they WASTES EVERYBODY's Time.
I pray, they make the game more mature in sense of a story not the expose of seductiveness =/ 'n not to forget about the opened worlds and exploration and secerts
That seems quite fitting.
I don't know what the first half of what you said means, looks kinda like a dude bro car road adventure.... Just can't get exited about this ones direction All guys, automatic fighting, Adnd no character switching
Empty PR talk. I'd be flying and customizing airships, battling evil within the kingdom if such were true.
you think things are that simple? the devs need to carefull about revealing info,as they are trying to tackling market,also...the devs himself not had all such luxerious freedom...they still need greenlight from they uppermanagement to talk stuff like this lot of devs had talk about this,how they keep the development close to the cest..it common dude beside,do you prefer spoiler?earlier spoiler?the devs aware to not spoil audience ..looks for metal gear,kojima only reveal smal tidbits regarding to the final game be patient idiot
I think Square is that simple by the example of FF13. They pretty much told you everything worth telling that game, whose story was bland, now there's this. Nevermind that we're talking about gameplay.
So that's his excuse for downgrading the game.
i see a person trying to turn this into excuse
I see a person who at the very least wont being buying the game day one. Also seeing someone who's going to base their overall opinion of the game on how it sells.
I remember ninja gaiden 3 went casual, and you know how that turned out.
Now that you mention NG3, I have to think back to the original version where you sometimes met a human solider and had to watch him beg for his life yet kill him regardless. Have to consider that and all of the SJW BS that's come to light yet has been around for a while. Since any true gamer who would have put that in would have done them a pure stealth option, an option to knock that solider out and/or tie them up, or even let them go.
So a mature game means boy band trip.
Disappointed in the lack of character variety
Mature means for people who are mature...unlike you who say stupid crap on subjects they clearly know nothing about.
For someone talking about maturity, you lack some, grampa. Chill.
So basically a counter-balance to X-2?
Well they definitely got MY attention with the boy band road trip. ~Fingers crossed Nick Jonas will be DLC.
I'm 28 and I still enjoy challenging games that actually require you to, you know, play the game. Doesn't matter how old I get, I'll still play bullet hell games like there was no tomorrow.
I agree with you, old man.
i agree...i too love to play game with fresh new concept and gameplay rather than generic and repetitive stuff this industry where people need to be creative..the audience,us too need to brace for that
This old news (sept 24) why the hell you approve it again???
this info came from yesterday livestream you name is 'inception',but you arent clever like that movie
"By Ishaan .September 24, 2014. 2:30pm" It's obvious you didn't click the link and check it by yourself. So now you owe me an apology for calling me 'not clever'.
