Square Enix's fifteenth entry in the Final Fantasy series for PC, PS4, and Xbox One has seen big changes over the years, and the developers still see plenty of room for growth.
They did the same with FF13 btw I think they should forget about FF15 now and start work on FF16 or concentrate on the FF7 remake
I thought FFXIII had more diverse characters. FFXV's characters are kinda....... https://steamusercontent-a.... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Yeah...
Final Fantasy 16 should be handled by another production team that isn't Team 2. Let team get another go with a mainstream title with Matsuno as director or least the main writer (Matsuno was the best writer at Square, a ling side the guy who who the Xenogears)
Yeah, you are right. The golden age of Squaresoft was with: Chrono Trigger, FFVI, FFVII, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, FFT, Vagrant Story and FFIX. Just replaying Xenogears, and I have to say the story is phenomenal. Xenogears in its rough format for example is much better than most of the new games that come out more polished and with great graphics and streamlined gameplay. FFXV was just a horrible mess. So was FFXIII. FFXII was good, but they didn't let Matsuno to complete it and broke it up to three games and he quit the company as a result.
If we cut away the bullshit it's because... 1) The main game was unfinished story wise 2) Lack of character development 3) Story was all over the place and you could see where they cut out the old Nomura story which they then turned into a film. In the end everything seemed rushed, slapped together or didn't connect well. For example Promptos "reveal" at the end of the game when they had to unlock the door. Where the f*** did that come from...oh yeah it was part of Nomuras story they cut out. 4) Splitting the remaining development of characters and the lore to an Anime short series and a animated film. 5) Money, Money and more Money
Thanks for saving me having to type this out myself.
https://www.neogaf.com/thre... Great read for anyone want to know as to why more content is coming out. So glad they are making good dlc. Game is great.
I absolutely loved FFXV yet I pretty much agree with what you've said. It's kinda tragic because what is there has been great for me even though it's very clear that they had to cut a lot of corners to get there. Makes you think what this game could've potentially been. Cutting stuff and making compromises is a standard practice in every ambitious, creative endevour but when it gets to the point where it's so blatantly obvious, it's definitely gone too far.
I love FFXV
I love FFXV also and, even though I enjoyed my first play through, I can admit that the story and characters were not fleshed out well enough. Now I plan to new game+ while incorporating all the character stories and changes in my next play through. I'm sure that is how it should have been from the start.
What I don't understand is why release the royal edition if there are more episodes coming out? If they have enough content for another game, why not make it a part 2 ? I honestly don't care for that episodic stuff, I play other games, so to have to re-plunge into that universe and remember the controls and the what nots can be daunting. Maybe it's just me. This is coming from someone who truly enjoyed playing Final Fantasy and was fully invested in the story and the gameplay. I have hundreds of hours in that game including DLC's.
“What I don't understand is why release the royal edition if there are more episodes coming out? If they have enough content for another game” Reminds me of a great SpongeBob Mr Krabs quote “Hello I like money” “Mr Krabs what made you make a second batch of DLC episodes right after the original Royal Edition?” “...Money”
Because the season pass included in the royal edition will allow you access to the future DLC.
I'm thinking about buying the royal edition, but if this is true it will help my decision. Do you have a link for this?
That’s what season passes do, include all future DLC. You don’t need a link for basic info like that
What a colossal pile of overrated trash this is. This is one of those cases where it's going to take a decade for people who claim to like it, to look back and finally see clearly, at just how s*** this thing actually was.
Or maybe people just actually like it. It's perfectly fine to not like the game, but don't act like your opinion is the "be all end all" of opinions on this game. You're not some king/queen of video games.
I like the game a lot but I can see that it has a lot of faults too. That's why I'm waiting for it to be complete and will buy on PC since I have a huge backlog to take care of. I'm just getting to darksiders and bioshock collection.
It absolutely has faults. It's far from perfect. But there are still redeeming qualities, and it's got some cool mechanics that some people would like.
Despite all the crap it went through the past ten years it didn't come out as bad as it could of been.
The Initial release of Final Fantasy XV is like. FFVII-IX missing any of the disc. If FFXV was released on PS1 in 4 disc. It would only have 2 disc. With the other two dlc. That how FFXV is handled right now.
Why did I just read your post like it was a poem? :D
Because fans demanded more from the game they waited for
Because it was pretty clear the game wasn't ready when it was released. Easily the worst non-MMO Final Fantasy.
Redefine, or attempt to finish?
