Twinfinite writes: Final Fantasy XV and NieR: Automata are two JRPGs Square Enix will be publishing relatively soon. Here's why NieR deserves your attention too.
Nier just looks absolutely fantastic at E3. This will probably end up being a very underrated game in terms of exposure and how many people will play it.
As a NieR game, this makes perfect sense.
I will encourage SE and Platinum Games to make games like NieR and just be true to themselves and not do crappy games for American publishers.
I'll be getting both games.
Like, I've been waiting a decade for Final Fantasy XV. I played through EVERY mainline Final Fantasy last year to prepare myself for it. And yet, I'm not nearly as hyped for it as I feel like I should be. I'm much more excited for NieR Automata and I Am Setsuna, to be honest.
I can't pick just one. I'll be playing every one of those game day one. So excited :)
Or you could just get both 😕
Exactly the gaming media is the absolute worst, and the gamers who give them weight are no better either. As a gamer you should buy whatever game (s) you want, and I this instance I'll be buying both of these games because they look fantastic.
I already forgot about FFXV when they turned a spinoff into a mainline title after downgrading it. As for Nier...Never cared about it & never will. Platinum Games is making it so I would've avoided it regardless of what it was anyway.
Never read something so close minded on this site, and I've seen someone go on a racist tangent.
Well, that was... helpful... /s
Nier was one of my least favourite Jrpg's. It started well, but went downhill fast. There is no way it will compare to FFXV.
It's not being made by the same studio and platinum is known for great gameplay. The story is what made Nier and they still have the original Writter/Producer. To me this looks way more promising then the first one.
I'm going to throw it out there but... you know you can buy more than one game, right?
One of my most anticipated after seeing the E3 gameplay.
mine too :-) it's just not your typical action game
Forget about the multiplat game and focus on this exclusive nah I'm good
The game looks amazing…. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Lol I watch that everyday since they shown it.
Can't I be excited for both? Oh well... I am, anyway!
So because NieR is looking good, we should forget about FF XV? That's a bait headline if I've ever seen one. Play off the popularity of something.
It's just a way to grab attention. I highly doubt they're forcing you to choose one over the other lol.
Nier Automata = Bayonetta Combat x Final Fantasy caliber story = Sold...
How about both.
This game looks insane! I lost all my hype for Final fantasy long time ago, now this game is on my radar
Why not both?
Nier is day 1 for me. Another amazing exclusive game to own on my collection.
Why not pay attention to both? I have plenty of Love to go around for both. Even though I personally can't wait for Final Fantasy, it's been a long road but it's finally coming to a end. With NieR coming out, it's like having Cake and Ice Cream too.
Huge difference between the two,one hack n slash with linear baths and one open world with RPG elements Oh,and if you still wanna choose witch one is better XV all the way :P
Well ever since I saw the demo for Nier a few days ago, I couldn't help but noticed how this is one of the smoothest looking games I've ever seen. It looked amazing and fun. Will keep my eye on it.
Oh I am paying attention. Very strict attention at that.
I don't think they're really the same genre, they just both happen to have RPG elements. I'm not sure why they're being compared.
If FFXV had niers combat nerds would be complaining that its to much like devil may cry or bayonetta. Cant please people who hate their lives and everything in it unless you have a new IP every single game.
Forget a game that's just over 2 months from release to pay attention to a game that doesn't even have a release date yet?
Or pay attention to both <(o_O)> ?
The Short version: because the first one was f*****g amazing ^^
