I finished FFXV a few days ago, I watched the movie and plan on watching the anime too. Why do people bash it so badly? I liked the game a lot! What FF game should I pick-up next?

You're either a massive weeb who has countless pictures of Noctis on his/her phone and is already thinking about cosplaying someone from the game or someone who started playing games in 2013.

Uhm, I think I started like 5 animes and only finished 2, so I don't think I qualify as a weeb. My phone is filled with metal music to the brink that the 32 internal and 128 external barely allowed me to save that picture :D (flacs are huge, heh).

The entire reason I played XV is because it was a totally different sort of game from the Final Fantasy norm.

A superb candidate for “it’s a bad installment but an alright game”.

Christian Clark

assuming this isnt a troll thread you should play the episode ignis dlc if you really liked the game

Anthony Richardson

I just think it's kinda mediocre, which has been the case for FF for a while anyway so no surprise here.
No good prolouge, the invasion is a movie, combat doesn't evolve at all and is way too easy, no optional summons, only 2-3 good dungeons and the rest is fetch quests, story shit happens of screen, story gap fillers are DLC, even more DLC coming this year etc.
The music was pretty good though and the oldschool monster designs
What FF game should I pick-up next
You'll probably like all of them if you liked XV.
Just play the popular ones

I usually play fps and mmo games, so this is kinda my first try at a rpg/jrpg and it was quite neat desu. I picked the game for a low price and spent almost 1 week to finish it, I don't mind the plot holes, since I don't believe that everything should have an explanation. I like when games leave me in the dark and make me think and imagine what happened. Same, the ending was decent, and it left a lot of room for interpretation.

Zachary Wright

People hate on the game because it's not muh linear corridor story with turn based combat with shitty menus dogging it down
Literally the best fighting system vaguely associated with Final Fantasy since the days where turn based was still used (and could be good)
You cunts hate it because it tried something different yet only the ending parts of the game and the backtracking excuse sucked
The same cunts somehow managed to hate FF13 even though it was very traditional FF style - what do you even want then? Spoilt cunts.

If you liked XV, try the dissidia beta today. It has noctis as a playable character and features some of the other main characters of final fantasy games.

makes up random shit
Am i not allowed to criticise is because it's literally an early access game? Beccause it has multiple season passes to fill sotry gaps? Because the combat is style over substance shit which shouldn't be the case in an ARPG?
Stop putting words in others mouths, noone said it should be linear, but noone said it shold only be one big green and one big brown field either. You guys needs to learn that there's a middleground and you can dislike both XIII and XV.
Why are you XVfags always so insecure.

Any criticism or opinion is always countered by "you are not allowed to dislike it because it said so"

Liam Perez

XIII gets a lot of hate for being corridor, so no.

Literally the best fighting system vaguely associated with Final Fantasy

That'd be XI or XII

You cunts hate it because it tried something different yet only the ending parts of the game and the backtracking excuse sucked

There's better reasons to hate it.

The same cunts somehow managed to hate FF13 even though it was very traditional FF style - what do you even want then? Spoilt cunts.

XIII was anything but traditional.

I didn't play other FF games, but I watched some of it on youtube and i'm not a fan of turn-based games; it's a bold move to change the franchise and the whole feel of a game, but it turned out decent

Why do people bash it so badly
Realistically speaking?
Because SE was hyping up the game to be the next coming of Christ and the trailer did look great and intriguing.

When it came out the game was an unfinished mess of poorly executed ideas, bugs, barren open world full of invisible walls, shallow combat and missing story content full of plotholes and a sorry excuse of a world building and storyline which was divided across different mediums before the game even came out.

Also, obligatory webm for the thread.

Tyler Fisher

I agree, side quests were boring af, without watching the movie, it gives no clues as to what happened in Insomnia.
I liked the music a lot, and I heard that most FF games have amazing music. I'll probably pick up IX, X, XII on Steam soon.

FF has a pretty low standard, that's why it's the best from FF since turn based days.

They should've "borrowed" more from Devil May Cry, like they were trying to with XV in the first place.

I see. I picked it up a month ago, so I got no idea how the game played when it came out. They fucked up big I see.
Weird, but wasn't the game in "development" like, since 2006-2007? Even if they had breaks, changed the game engine, assets, etc they should've nailed the story, the sidequests, etc long time ago

Leo Collins

The story was drastically changed.

they changed Directors around 2013 from Noruma to Tataba and he changed a lot of shit.

This is what he said about the combat system. He was the guy who wanted it to be "Hold O to win"

Leo King
Leo King

Yeah, they kinda fast-forwarded the last chapters, and World of Ruin was short lived and it didn't make me feel bad for world, I just wanted to understand what happened after Noctis touched the crystal and why I had a beard

Nolan Reyes
Nolan Reyes

and why I had a beard
did you miss the part where he was in there for 10 years?

John Gomez
John Gomez

Yeah, outsourcing can go that way. OR, you could end up with a Deus Ex: Human Revolution, with the shittiest boss battles known to man - so bad, in fact, that they need to do a Director's Cut of the game just to fix it.

To be honest it looked like FFXV was stealing from DMC almost directly but they were scared of losing traditional FF trappings. If they had, it would have been a better game. The true weebs would QQ about XV but they are anyway, so shit would've been worth.

Jaxon Thompson
Jaxon Thompson

I hope they'll drop that idea with the next game. The gameplay was nice at the start of the game, how Ignis and Gladio offered "advices" on how to approach a situation, but after the 1st chapter, it died and it became boring.

Luke Ortiz

Lucas Barnes

After playing the game, no, but when it "happened" I had no clue what was going on. Either I phased out and didn't read the subtitles, or the game did a poor job at explaining in that very moment what happened.

I played the base game and the first boss was nearly impossible for me because I thought I could stealth/hack my way past it.

Nope.

2nd boss was easy
3rd boss was "can't see shit"

The version we got started around late 2013, and everything before that was scrapped due to the original game being a trilogy and Square not wanting to commit.

Andrew Nguyen

I liked the story, how Noctis went from some ungrateful brat to a men that made his father proud, how his bros were there for him, how they tried, each in their own way, make Noctis a king, like his father (I see that the whole son tries to become his father thing is present in the whole game), I liked the ending with both Noctis giving his life to end Ardyn and how, probably in the afterlife, he got his marriage with Luna. I didn't like the combat system, it become boring, I didn't like the last 3 chapters, they seemed rushed out with barely anything palpable. There, I hope you can jo calmly now.

at least Comrades looks like they fixed the flaws in the game play

but I am not spending $20 on a buggy Mutliplayer DLC to confirm it

Not all of them, but the combat is indeed miles better.
It lacks substance heavily though, the only unique thing it can offer is the lv.70 Bahamut trial.

Is the loading time patch out already? I played it day one and finished all the conent which was mostly just piss easy short missions in like two days and half of that time were loading screen, there're 3-4 loading screens before and after every mission

Oliver Phillips

To be absolutely fair, the E3 2013 trailer looked great, but probably played like garbage.
Some of the animations (especially for the great sword) are junk, the party attack interruptions are even worse than in the main game, etc.
I would've much more preferred the 2014 stuff they shown.
https://youtu.be/Md7GhVH3vUg

sick fluid animations with perfect weight, momentum, separation and hit stun from the enemies
being able to air-step with the great sword properly, not being locked in the animation like a faggot
dat cuhrayzee armiger
dat jumping over enemies Prince of Persia style

Auto weapons switching is give or take, but to me the game looked much more fun to play in that build than what we ended up getting.

Jack Price

Matthew Young

It's bad because you need to watch the movie and anime to understand it

This is a meme, the story is really fucking easy to follow in the game alone. The only part that's a little jarring is that old guy who dies and we're supposed to care about.

I watched none of the side material before playing the game and found the plot to be infinitely more coherent than FFXIII.

Luis Harris
Luis Harris

Well, most games nowadays are downgrades of what we see at E3, so it's not relevant anymore to trust trailers and gameplay trailers.

Robert Edwards

I think the 2013 gameplay was really in early development.
But indeed the 2014 gameplay was amazing, really a shame that everything (even the fucking imperial cars) was throw away.

What bothered me the most was how Noctis' model is still the exact same, except for the head. A big old guy's head attached to the body of a short, skinny kid. Makes all the costumes look like shit

Look, I know you probably will not believe this. But, particular tastes aside, you like it because you know very very little about the structure of a story, characters and pretty much everything involved.
If you learn about this while growing up, in a few years you will go back to this saga and realize exactly how shitty it was.

The game's story wasn't great, but there's no need to dwell on the negatives. The characters are good. There are a lot of exciting moments. And a few scenes will get you emotional.

Angel Gutierrez

I won't deny it, but I kinda get "stories" and how they are supposed to develop during a timeframe. I used to, when I was in highschool, to read a lot, but I always liked books in which the story and all the details weren't out in the open. I don't need a carer to point me where to go, to explain me everything. I like ambiguity, mystery, but up to a point. I won't deny that the game does make things hard to understand, but it won't lose too many points from me because of that. I don't need to know each branch of a story to enjoy it, some things are left unsaid, unshowed, unexplained and this is why I enjoyed the story (up to a point). If people feel the need to know everything about a certain story, be it, but you don't need to call out people who enjoyed it. My favorite game, lore-wise, it's World of Warcraft, and despite it's many expansions, quests, many things about the world are left unexplained. I also read some of the books, and while they do offer more info, it's nothing groundbreaking, and sometimes they make me question stuff even more. Finally, as I stated before, I agree, there's a chance that after some years, when I'll look back at FFXV I'll see more flaws. I can't say that I adore or love or idolize the game or it's characters, some characters, like Cindy, are so poorly developed that it took me a few seconds to recall who she was. Anyway, thanks for the input.

No, most people think it's at least decent and the the extreme ends are either loving it or hating it. It's a forgettable game with a few aspects that had potential that weren't flesh out enough and a couple really notable flaws. You don't get points for being a contrarian on this one.

Michael Jones

I'll buy it for PC. Looks fun. I was a huge FF fan, but that tapered off after FFXII, a game i thought was actually great. I wasn't invested in the hype for this, so I don't think I'll be so disappointed like most of you.

4,6,7,9 are the best in the series.

10,12,5, are alright

1,2,3,14 are just okay

11, 13 are the worst in the series.

I haven't played 15 yet but opinions varry depending on WHEN you played the game. If you played it at launch you probably disliked it. If you played it now with all the updates and DLC you probably thought it was decent. Probably along the lines of 10,12 and 5.

Its a AAA title thats why my dude, also because they are newfags they never got to experience the best final fantasy had to offer. Its a damn shame that they get introduced to the series with ff15.

I remember there being a fan survey with around 3k votes and surprise surprise those who never played a final fantasy game before rated it higher than veterans. As in story,characters,graphics,sound,combat,difficulty etc etc.

Its sad people dont get to see a great ff game. Instead of the meh rushed ff15 that was 7 years in development hell.

Nathaniel Cook
Nathaniel Cook

If you never gave a shit about Versus like me, then FF15 is a pretty good game, not great but a solid 70

The last few chapters were bad but i enjoyed the trip up to that point.

I still don't understand the hype behind Versus, it was never going to come out with how little they showed of it and Square jumping ship to make FFXIII-2/3

Jordan Cooper
Jordan Cooper

First timers on the pc will have a entirely different experience than those that bought it at launch, you'll get all the character dlcs, character swap which is less than 1month old will also be available, some additional cutscenes,chapter 13 fix,offroad regalia,removal of invisible boundaries. All the updates since launch is here http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Final_Fantasy_XV_patches

I feel bad for people that bought it at launch, it still fails at story execution but its not terrible. Its just mediocre, not bad or great.

Carter Wood

10,12 and 5.
Eugh no, XV is markedly worse than every other mainline FF, even 13. It's held up mostly by fluff and GRAFICS, the gameplay is the most braindead shit to grace JRPGS and action games in years even with the updates.

High Expectations. Even as someone who threw like 100 hours into it, I'll be the first to claim it's a very flawed game. There is some depth to the combat, but item spamming removes any need to seek or use it. Storywise, I always describe it as they clearly had a point A and point B in mind, but had no idea how to properly connect the two.

That said, the road trip was a ton of fun and the callbacks in the final chapter made for an amazing emotional impact. I just wish everything between those two things were better fleshed out.
