Final Fantasy XVI is going to face a lot of scrutiny. While FF7R probably slaked the thirst of RPG fans, players went into the game knowing what they were getting. Now, Square Enix has the impossible task of trying to please players and critics
I just want them to have a good protagonist and combat. Preferably someone that doesn't look like they're in a boy band
Haha, yeah the J-Pop crew had me tripping.
To add to your requests, a good story too. And please for the love of god ditch the boy band look haha.
Agreed. I want an adult as the main protagonist with a mature/dark narrative.
Just a complete (and coherent) story would please me. After 15 and now 7R, I'm confident in the gameplay mechanics generally. I just don't want to feel like we need a movie, an anime, and a bunch of dlc to get a full story again.
agreed, 15 is probably my least favorite final fantasy...
That's been a major weak point of the franchise in the last decade, I'm indifferent to the combat in FF7R, but good story/characters would really sell me on the franchise again.
Hell yes, agreed. I think that is what killed the FF15 experience was all the supposed extra media content that was required to get the full experience. Bad move. Hopefully they take that as a Final Fantasy Movie learning experience.
So author asked for the open world to be dialed back but also wants: Flying an airship Chocobo racing Mounted combat I am all for open world personally, not sure airship can work in FF12 or Dragon Quest 11 style of world design
Dont wanna spoil too much but there is a flying vehicle you get access to later in DQXI. It works great
FFXV wasn't even really that much of open world. So many areas were completely gated off. The problem was the side quests sucked, and there wasn't much to do. Witcher 3 did quests and storytelling throughout an open world just fine.
Um have you never played final fantasy or jrpgs before? Openworld jrpgs were always like that. You never got full access to map till end game.
I feel like alot of other games just do open worlds better than FFXV, BotW and Horizon Zero Dawn are both great examples, as I feel like I'm always discovering things. Whereas FFXV felt like an almost empty mass to me.
I just want it high/medieval fantasy like Final Fantasy 9 and the old school ones.
FF9 had such a cool art style and atmosphere. It'd be really interesting if they brought that kind of concept back.
Also one of the darkest stories in any FF game, which many have overlooked due to the art style.
That can't be too difficult. Look at what the fans like about previous Final Fantasy games and bravely default to them. Personally, I do prefer more fantasy than science fiction.
I mean it is in the title.
Anything like that April Fool trailer. + Battle System similar to XIII 2007 trailer, or premium and enhanced version of DQ Heroes 2.
all they have to do is release a good, COMPLETE game on ps5, xbox series x and pc.
Could release a finished game, that'd be nice. The holes in FF15 were very evident. FF7R was pretty great though. They should just make a sequel to FFIX lol.
I am done with remakes and sequels. Some new storytelling ideas would be an instant looker for purchase.
Lets go back to Ivalice! or give us a game that is based on EARLY Eorzea, that would be awesome and smart considering the FFXIV install base.
