Which game is more embarassing?

Final Fantasy XV 45 23.32%
Final Fantasy XV 13 6.74%
Mass Effe- I mean Final Fantasy XV 135 69.95%

I never expected anything from Mass Effect, so I see no embarassment from Andromeda.

But I also don't think FFXV is worth of being called an embarassment as well, it looks better than the last main game (XIII, 'cause XIV is a MMO XP), and it also looks better than a good bunch of the others (I, II, III, VIII, X), so at the very least it should be around the middle spectrum of the franchise, between that and VII, IX, XII if the ones I didn't play yet (IV, V, VI) are all better than it, if not, it'll be on the high spectrum so yeah, no embarassment, to me.

FFXV is a great game, it ain't revolutionary but at least it doesn't trip it nearly as bad as Mass Effect: A. Both games came with gigantic expectations, and while both didn't quite live up to all the hype, FFXV came out much better comparatively

Final Fantasy XV is getting huge you updates every month. If the leaked update list is to be believed it will be getting some hefty stuff added to it for the next year.

I don't see how FF XV is an embarrassment in the slightest. It's a very good game as far as I'm concerned. It has its problems, but there are far more positives to it than negatives. Can't say much about Andromeda since I haven't played it, nor do I really plan to do so anyway.

Why is Andromeda not an option here? It is a rigged poll and does not even have Mass Effect: Andromeda as an option. FFXV is a better game than Mass Effect: Andromeda. Most RPG games ever released are better games than Mass Effect: Andromeda. Andromeda highlights the arrogance and contempt EA has for gamers by releasing an incomplete near unplayable chaotic mess of a game. Multiple patches are needed to improve Mass Effect: Andromeda but the damage has already been  done and it will have low sales as  a consequence for taking gamers as chumps.

Even for someone who has played and yelled frequently at FFXV, I'd go with Mass Effect. The FF series already had its fair share of up and down on metacritic and among users, Mass Effect has been nothing but up critically and has a huge fan following who are much less divided.
I'm pretty sure FFXV is the most shit out of the two as a game though.

End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Neither. I treat each game in a series differently, and i think Andromeda and FFXV are good entries into their respective franchises.

Uh...Mass Effect Andromeda, no question? Like, none. At all.

Say what you want about your personal taste but the reality is that if you pull back to get a more general perspective, Final Fantasy XV was received as a rather good game by the majority. And it along with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was viewed as a return to form of a sort after the XIII trilogy and XIV ran the franchise straight into the ground.

Mass Effect Andromeda, on the other hand, followed up on a game with a controversial ending but otherwise very well liked game and is, if nothing else generally perceived as disappointing. Not terrible, but disappointing. And the many technical short comings are embarrassing for any game with this much dev time.

Exactly. No matter the vocal minority of FFXV haters the game was pretty damn good. ME:A simply looks... boring? Generic? Broken? Whatever the reason is, its obvious that the was majority of fans did not like the direction it took.

Currently playing FF15. When I first started playing FF15 I was really disappointing. I think I wanted to hate it and I thought it just didn't feel like a FF game but after giving it a little more time I am definitely enjoying it. Although, it does feel a little broken when I was able to get up to level 55 before the end of chapter 3. I'm pretty sure I had the Ultima sword by the end of that chapter too.

I've played every Final Fantasy game not on a cell phone/tablet and this one is somewhere towards the upper middle of the pack.

I think the real embarrassment is how people completely write off an entire game for some small issues
