Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy shouldn't have sequels.

I know, you love the world you just played in  and it was an excellent game but one of Final Fantasy's main strengths was that with each game you knew the story would be self contained and the world it's own while having similar themes (chocobos, Cid, summons etc.). SPOILERS TO FOLLOW.

Thinking back on the sequels that SquEnix have made they, while might have sold well, ruined the stories and the sacrifices the characters made. The ending of FF7 was essentially changed (even if it was left open to interpretation), Tidus' sacrifice was belittled. Fang and Vanille's as well even.

The reason I think of this is because of the FFX/X-2HD sales thread, I hope that SquEnix don't get the idea that making a FFX-3 game is a good idea when all we as fan really want is a new game. FFXIII was the only single player main series FF game last gen (and it wasn't that well received in a lot of the fanbase), before that we had 2 in a gen, then 3 every gen before that. Next gen with it already confirmed FFXV will have sequels, will this be the same? Will be get lumped with 1 FF game all generation? And a bunch of sequels belittling the characters achievements.

SquEnix have said recently that they want to go back to their JRPG routes, yet I feel FF won't be part of that. FFXV will still get sequels and we won't see another FF game after it until a long time after.

Also, have you listened to the Bonus Audio on FFX/X-2HD, if so what would you think if that was the X-3 premise?



Hmm, pie.

Depends on how good the sequels are really. The stories in the Final Fantasy games are often so great it would be a waste not to have further games in that world.

As long as making sequels don't continue to distract from making new main series games and the sequels are actually good then I'm all for it.

No FFX won't get another sequel.
FFX-2 would. It'll be called FFX-2-2.

Well if you dont want sequels make sure they make enough money back on XV... who am I kidding.

If it dosent sell well enough it gets sequels to make back the money, if it sells amazingly we get sequels to maximise profits...

Good thing I dont mind the sequels =P

if the scope of the whole game allows it there is nothing wrong with releasing it in parts. but that also means it should be planned that way from the get go.

I believe Square said the franchise was only profitable with sequels. I can't remember if it was exactly that or something else. I'll see if I can find the exact quote later. But I do agree that I'd rather not see sequels. One of the great things about FF during the 5/6th gen was that each game gave you the chance to explore a new world once again. Last gen we didn't get that. I'm pretty sure if Lightning had only gotten one game she wouldn't be as reviled in the West as she is now with 3 games. I know that we'll see sequels with XV but I really do hope that we also get to see XVI this gen as well.

See to me the confined worlds off Final Fantasy games, because they are such great stories and worlds, that ny additional content that is official, takes from the original premise and scews it's impact. Extended games of FF7 have shown this, indtroducing new characters, changing how things work to make sequels fit.

But I can agree on the latter, the issue we had last gen was that they didn't do that. 1 FF game all generation. It's pathetic really.
