12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

The problem is that FF fans are incapable of rating a FF game anything lower than 70. Which will mean that it lands in the undeserved 80s range.

Your game now belongs to the Bethesda fandom. Conform or be destroyed by Alduin's shout! 

I don't have to conform. SE is still making awesome games like WoFF, Dimensions 2 and DQ11 which stick to the proper formula. If they want to make every FF main game a FFXV I'll let them.

FFXV can't take away decades of greatness.

Plus that isn't really accurate anyway.  This isn't structured at all like a Bethesda game, one large world you explore freely from the word go with no restrictions and the storylines - both main and side - just happen there.  Nor is it a Ubisoft game where all content from story to side is just nebulous blobs of tasks sprinkled around a sandbox.  From what we have seen and heard, this is structured more like Xenoblade Chronicles or Witcher 3, with a grand story still acting as the primary structure that dictates your broader progression even though the world you progress through is rather open.  The regions and world are open but your movement through them from area to area is still paced primarily by the story, iirc.

Changing it to a 79, More I see of it the more I think critics are going to be harsh on it.

FFXIII wasn't a bad game,  the problem is that the Serie's standard is very high

The problem is that it dropped way too much stuff people expect from FF, not that the standard is high (which it is).
There was no exploration basically the whole game, barely any weapons, cutscenes popping up after each 3 steps (they used to be special pieces).
It has a good story, and I personally liked the paradigm shift gameplay mechanic, but sadly even those two had clear weak points, the paradigm shift could be easily abused and let the game play itself and the story presentation, even filled with cutscenes, was not the best as a lot of info had to be searched instead of delivered to you.

Yes, it wasn't a bad game, but it wasn't only because the other games were better.

Yeah, I've played through XIII twice and although I do enjoy it, it does have serious flaws. I think XV should objectively be better simply on the basis that the combat will always require engagement and there is unlikely to be long portions of the game running through narrow tunnels defeating enemies which all require the same tactic (yet have annoyingly high health)

FFXV will be like FFXII, action oriented, bigger scenarios to explore, collecting summons in the world, they are even getting the hunts back, I don't see much room for XV to be worse than XIII, XII is my favorite, afterall.



I want the game to score in the high 90s, but I feel like too many critics are going to try to make comparisons to western rpgs and bring down points for that due to the combat system. I am gonna go mid 80s, 86.
