Final Fantasy 16 Review - IGN

Final Fantasy 16's story, characters, and worldbuilding are among the best the series has to offer, with exciting and engaging combat, despite it being a departure from what longtime fans may expect.

This game is getting 10s everywhere. It looks like Tears of the Kingdom has competition. At this point Sony should just acquire Square Enix or at least the Final Fantasy IP

Ashunderfire86161d ago (Edited 161d ago )

Tears of The Kingdom has more competition than just this game. Final Fantasy, Hogwarts Legacy, Diablo 4, Atlas Fallen, Armored Core 6, Baldur Gate 3, Starfield, Lords of the Fallen, Alan Wake 2(that maybe in the horror category only), and Spiderman 2 as the heavy hitter!!! Need I say more?

I can almost guarantee you that Tears of the Kingdom or Final Fantasy will win the award. Not that I disagree with you but personally I still think Tears of the Kingdom will win it. I am excited for Armor Core 6 as well since From Software never disappoints

Totk has bettter reviews than ff16, one is sitting at 96 and the other at 88 in metacritic.

I would use user score for both but since they are exclusives they are going to be trolled.

Ninver161d ago

It's been an amazing year so far. Great high scoring games and more to come. GOTY will be tight indeed.

-Foxtrot161d ago

After playing the demo and the like I hope this gets GOTY if the full thing ends up being good and they nail the story.

Zelda is more or less the same as BotW, at least this one feels fresher as each FF game takes a different approach

Sonic1881161d ago

"Zelda is more or less the same as BotW"

That's not going to matter and you know that. When December comes we know who's going to win goty award

-Foxtrot161d ago

Oh I know

I mean look at the 7/10 or 3/5 reviews, die hard fanboys have been going apeshit so if it doesn’t win GOTY…ooooft. I dread to think.

cemelc161d ago (Edited 161d ago )

You both talking as if totk is lesser than ff16, it isnt.

If you think zelda will win cos there is bias over ff, let me dash that hope real quick:

Both game have been around for 20+ years.
Both have legendary reputation.
Both have strong showings this year.

Zelda will win cos it reinvented itself with botw and went above and beyond in totk.

"Zelda is more or less the same as BotW" yeah thats why im seeing builds of stuff being created everywhere on the internet, just like botw. Or the entire map above hyrule or the depths.

Im sorry to tell you this, but what youre saying is a cope mechanism cos one way or the other even you understand zelda has done something too hard to beat.

My guess for goty:
Best story--ff116
Best character- ff16
best game - totk

tears of the kingdom 96 meta and ff16 sitting at 88 i don't think its in competition for goty. Still going to buy it tho

Si-Fly161d ago

Yeah I’m not expecting it to be TOTK good but I know I’ll enjoy it, the demo was great!

Sonic1881161d ago (Edited 161d ago )

Final Fantasy 16 has a 91 on opencritic but I don't think that makes a difference though


NecrumOddBoy161d ago

RDR2 - 97
GOW - 94

God of War won GOTY

It's really all about who's voting but it doesn't really matter. Gamers are eating real good this year.

neutralgamer1992161d ago


Sony are definitely going to acquire square and there is good chance capcom too. The reason for wait is they don’t want the spotlight on Sony acquisitions right now. If activision deal is approved you will hear about square acquisition within a month and capcom soon after

Sony has a acquisition balance of over 13 billion(cash)

Profchaos160d ago

Sony actually have a minority stake in se

I enjoyed the demo I was shocked honestly. I’m replaying the mainline Kingdom Hearts games rn, but I will definitely jump into this afterwards.

StarkR3ality161d ago

Looking forward to it! Currently playing through Persona 5 royal again, then I'll have this to smash through!

The Wood161d ago (Edited 161d ago )

loved p5r. What an absolute diamond of a game. I lived in the world

Ill also be buying FF16. The demo really did wonders for its uptake. Cleaver cleaver marketing

StarkR3ality161d ago

Yeah it's one of those games that's super addicting, not usually a fan of turn based JRPG's, but persona just oozes style, got it's hooks in massively.
