Not really.
Final Fantasy 15 was crap.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1 was meh.

Not very hyped for future Final Fantasy games.

Speak for yourself, FFVII Remake was my favorite game last generation. The story was bonkers in FFXV but it was a step in the right direction compared to XIII.

Ill take XIII over XV any day, if i wanted to just mash buttons i would play cookie clicker instead of XV. It was the least interesting combat system ive ever seen in a FF game. FF XIII at least had a comprehensive story, if you wanted to really understand the XV story, you had to watch a movie, an anime and there were some kind of audio logs if im not mistaken.

At least in ff7R they improved on it so mindless bashing doesnt get totally rewarded.

15 was okay considering all the hell it went though. I loved FFVII Remake 1 reminded me of the action RPGs of Square’s past. As for 16, did you not see who’s working on it?! FFXVI is going to be one of the best Final Fantasy titles ever.

I think you should replay FF 15, I started it up after getting the Royal Edition I have a real appreciation for this game. It’s really different, but there’s this immersive quality and chill vibe to it that, honestly, I haven’t seen in any other game.

It’s kind of stupid how into the game I’ve gotten. Like, I’m always trying to find new recipes, fishing, exploring for random dungeons and getting material to make OP weapons for how early I am in the game. The Easter eggs and things are fun to see if you’re a fan.

Thought the Deadeye quest was pretty cool. I dunno, I think it’s actually kind of a brilliant game. Is it my favorite FF game? No, I’m the one who thought the series was best from 6-9, but giving 15 another go, I think it’s really good.

gold_drake562d ago

you're entitled to your nad opinion of course, however, even objectively, FF7rR was amazing.

15 got good when the royal version came out

Can't wait to spend $60 on another piece of a 25 year old game they decided to reinvent.

SegaSaturn669563d ago

Hopefully they'll give it away for free on ps plus.

Or you could wait for it to go on sale lol.

Me neither, and not in a sarcastic way 😂

Gregero563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

$70. You'll spend $70 on another piece of a 25 year old game they'll reinvent in the worst ways by pulling out content that's too "disturbing" for the players. The midgar zolem is gonna be in a little grave with Seph's sword in it because seeing the snake is too graphic like the shinra massacre scene was. Hope youre enjoyin Cancun, man.

andy85563d ago

Doesn't sound like you've even played it. It was a fantastic game and I got 100 hours out of it. So yes I'll revisit one of my favourite game worlds for $60. What exactly was pulled out of it anyway? The midgar section in the original game is tiny. If anything they added loads to it.

Eonjay563d ago

For the $60 paid I felt like I got a full game. I'm gonna buy the next part too! And when the last part releases they will probably have a box-set or something decent.

Maybe I'm the minority here, but I'd rather them do these "full-game" pieces than a single game. FF7 Remake didn't feel like a short game and seeing as this is as much as they got done in a lengthy game development process I'm looking forward to what they release next.

Think of how much more grand this game will be once it's done and you can play the "Complete" version? That's beyond epic. We're actually getting more game when you think about it and I don't understand why you'd complain about that. Yea, I get the wait is painful, but man once it'd done it's gonna' be something!

philm87562d ago

Like everything else, don't buy it if you don't want it. And stop feeling the need to slate everything you don't like that other people do.

TheTony316562d ago

You obviously won't buy it anyway.

Someone seems rattled lately.

Dec 😅🤣 dunno why my mind immediately went to 2024 tho. Sorry guys. I’m sure it’s happening but they keep announcing all these other games and yet to finish this one 🙄🤷🏻‍♂️ 🤣

MrChow666563d ago

Part 1 was good , I want more

gangsta_red563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

This is one of those times where I disagree with the episodic model especially for FF7.

I think Square should have just released a complete game and only did it this way to capitalize on the FF 7 popularity, but it seems the interest for this has faded.

It especially didn't sit well with people who had the game for PS4 and couldn't play the latest add on that was PS5 only.

shinoff2183563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

i doubt interest has died down. itll sell just as much. Far as my opinion i didnt like it on ps4 originally but i decided to give it another try when i got my ps5 and i enjoyed it. I personally still wouldve liked the old school system of battling and stuff like that. it was basically a hack and slash with some rpg elements. Story was pretty good. Some of us just wanted updated graphics with maybe a little extra content.

Gregero563d ago

They're probably gonna break it up into 4 or 5 pieces to get the maximum mount of money for what was a single game. Then they're gonna remake each one and do the same. Then they're gonna have a special edition box set that comes with a chocobo sticker or some shit.

CS7563d ago

The game was a 50 hour JRPG with a new story.

If that is not a complete game then I don’t know what is.

FFVII remade in 4K with the graphics and presentation of Remake is impossible.

There is no game at that scale.

shinoff2183563d ago

It is not impossible. No way.
