I've been thinking about getting it since i've never played a FF game before and its pretty cheap right now and the visuals look pretty damn sweet. Is the story and gameplay any good?
It's a great game, story and gameplay wise. I'd wait until after the hopefully last set of DLC episodes come out which include episode Ardyn, Aranea, Luna and Noctis. But just to note regarding complaints you may hear online (and pretty much just online to the level you hear complaints of FFXV).. there's a division of FF fans that have an impossible set of expectations unless the game stylistically goes back to old school turn based and then all of a sudden everything is just peachy. Watch this post trigger them to come in after I mentioned them lol. They can't resist.
