Forums - Gaming Discussion - What upcoming Final Fantasy title are you most excited about?

 

I'm really excited for

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth 14 56.00%
 
Final Fantasy XVI 5 20.00%
 
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion 6 24.00%
 
Total:25

It is weird how I am the first to say 16 in the poll. 7 is somewhat of a known quantity. Sure, there are going to be story changes and all, but it is still a version of ff7. 16 is totally new. And nobody is hyped. That is very surprising.

Were the latest single player iterations of mainline ffs so controversial that people lost their trust in future projects? 13, 13/2, 13/3, 15 - I hated them all. But I have never played anything ff7 either. And I intend to buy ff7, once it is complete with all 3 parts. So even with my distrust in square's single player efforts taken into account, I have to go with what I will play in a year, not in 5 years. And something completely new has to be more exciting to me anyways. The 16-trailer looked promising to me.

Out of them 16. No interest in the next FF7 part as it's not FF7. Crisis I might dabble in but if it's going to also change the story to fit this new FF7 story then no.

I'm more excited for SquEnix other titles, many are new and different.



Hmm, pie.

XVI, followed by VII: Rebirth. VII Remake was my favourite game of 2020, so I'm very much looking forward to the next part. However, XVI is an entirely new installment in the series being made by one of S-E's best development teams, so it has my interest more.



I'll vote Crisis Core, as right now it's the only one I can play and I've not been planning to get a PS5 this gen.

Before I didn't think there was a great chance Square would bother releasing the 'Remake' titles for Xbox, but the fact they're actually throwing a small bone here, even releasing with smart delivery (a big factor for me still), makes me feel there's a better than not chance the games will come to Xbox at some point, even if it's 2-3 years after the initial launch.

People who mostly/only play on Switch have been dealing with that type of uncertainty this whole gen, and they manage to get on and be happy with what they get. So I can't empathise with the mass outrage and whining from Xbox users on this topic. You may as well be saying that the system you chose isn't publishing enough games to keep you happy, so you just throw blame at anyone when things don't go your way, even overlooking many good things that happen.

With the state of Halo, if Avowed was to get pushed back even further than 2023 and if Starfield underwhelms, I may honestly have to reconsider the PS5, or even trying to save for a new PC build in this hellish economy. But that's all still far down the line for me, making me glad that I haven't committed to any ecosystem prematurely; then I'd have no one to blame but myself.

As for FFXVI, the only thing I took away from the last trailer was that it has a lot of particle effects. A shit load of particle effects. Who knows what that game will be. I wished they would've just finished FFXV instead of making people read a book; at least that already had the known potential of a complete epic, if people could just see/play it in it's entirety, and maybe iron out some of the gameplay flaws and mechanics. They didn't even need to do anything too huge outside of what they planned and some QoL improvements, but they just abandoned it instead.

What can you really expect from a company with a track record littered with cases like FFXV. Now their big Hail Mary is/was a remake of FFVII, and while it's interesting and worth following, it's also blatantly no longer a remake. Another concept that's been changed/abandoned, based on how Nomura chose to gel his hair that day and what mood it put him in.

You won't know what you'll get with modern Final Fantasy until you actually get it, so I see no reason to be truly excited.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 releases in a week btw, so I'm not sure why we're dedicating a thread to games that don't even have release dates.

Boring trailers and uninteresting concept 



Around the Network

I wish I could vote for Live A Live, DQ12 or DQ3 Remake.  I am more excited for all of these games, than the 3 listed.  These 3 FF games don't look terrible, but I have some issues with all of them.

Crisis Core - This is probably going to be the most fun of the 3, but I've already played it.  Do I want to double dip?

FF7 Rebirth - I really love the original FF7, and I thought FF7 Remake was both very fun and very disappointing.  I expect this to be even more disappointing than Remake.  I expect them to deviate from the story big time.

FF16 - The trailers for this game haven't done anything for me so far.  The only thing I like is that Yoshi P is the producer of this game.  He made FF14 into a good game which is basically a miracle.  However, FF's best days were when the original team was making the games.  They aren't there anymore, and I don't think even Yoshi P is capable of making a game as good as the top FF games.

Also, I don't plan to buy a PS5 or PC capable of playing these games until Elden Ring 2 releases.  I guess that means I need to vote Crisis Core.



The one that releases earlier. Then I'll change to the next one.

I would not say excited for any of them but I plan to buy all 3 as more of yeah sure why not sorta thing. I played Crisis Core on PSP and eehh but a remake why not. FF7R is a mixed bag for me but something in Rebirth I do want to see like the Gold Saucer so sure. FF16. Back to High fantasy, I'm intrigued.

From what I know Crisis Core is a remaster with just uped texture and res.

No they remade the visuals entirely and updated the combat system. Not a total overhaul but they did tweak it.

Gotcha, I must have missed their mention of these parts.
