Meh, I was never into FF, XV , Type-0, and Crysis Core (and 9, but then I heard that it had the bs random encounters and decided that it sucked by default) are the only ones that have remotely interested me. And I've played 2 main line tittles so far, I just loath them.

If I can offer advice is that you move on to other games that try to capitalize on the classic FF formula, after all, FF is just a name, you can find similar clones if you want your FF-fix just that bad.

How about Bravely Default? That seems like the old classic FF.

Nah, that's too easy, I say go the hipster route for a very obscure, actually decent RPGMaker game.



I'm now filled with determination.

Disagree, FF has been a great game to me. Although FFXIII trilogy wasn't as great as it could of been it was still a good series imo.



That's sad.
I'm playing 7 right now and it's being great. 12 was awesome too.

The only RPGMaker games I know are actually hardly RPG at all, but RPG based horror games. Not very RPG, but good games made with RPGMaker programs.

This seems a bizarre time to make such a silly decision. Type-0 is incredible, and FFXV is set to be divine. We've also had great spin-offs like FF Explorers, Dissidia, Theatrhythm, and Bravely Default/Second.

So were XIII, XIII-2, XIII-3 and XIV and not one delivered.  The decision doesn't seem "silly" at all.

I agree with this statement. You can only be let down so many times before you start to lose hope. I am leaning towards giving Final Fantasy XV a chance based on the overwhelming opinion that Final Fantasy XV should be better, but if it fails me there will be no more Final Fantasy games in my future.

Personally Final Fantasy started going down hill for me with FFVII. The last time I felt the "Final Fantasy magic' was when I played Lost Odyssey.

Lost Odyssey felt more like Final Fantasy to me compared to everything after Final Fantasy X. I loved that game, and I feel like it is underappreciated.



 

Wait, are you saying that there's something distinctly "NOT" Final Fantasy about a game that is about 4 pretty boys that look like they could be a boy band on a road trip in their luxury car?

Isn't that what made the series immensely popular about Final Fantasy 1 through 10 (X)? I'm confused.



I understand. Unlike those jizzing for FFXV, while i think it looks interesting i have no illusions. The series will not go back to its past glory. Square just doesnt have the talent anymore. Besides Nomura, its all B lines.

You know what, I was wrong. The last time I felt the Final Fantasy magic was when I played Bravely Default.

It's weird. FF12 was a fantastic game but it just wasn't 'Final Fantasy'. But what is Final Fantasy? Each one is different but it has it's stables. People say it needs to change and evolve but why does it need to do that? Is it not the gameplay/format of these games we love.

There is a reason FIFA, Madden and CoD sells millions each year. Basically they are the same game. FF doesn't need to reinvent itself or change, just needs a slightly different magic system and a new story with okay graphics and we'd all be happy.

Someone on this website said it best, along the lines of for some reason FF games (and 13 in particular) became about being the pinnacle of graphics and innovation when beforehand it had never been. This is why 13 failed and XV is taking so long.

Also, raah rah, not another FF thread. etc.

That somewhere along the line was FF7.  Massive budget, focus on style with giant swords and spikey hair, and the best graphics in videogame history.  Considering how much money that game made, it's pretty easy to see why they followed that path.

FF7 graphics weren't even close to the best of videogame history at the time.
