I mean, nothing will probably ever trump my top three, which is, in no particular order, VI, VII, and XII. But XV has it's moments
Altissia is very beautiful, the most memorable element of FFXV
The game is like a literal joke.
You’re on the way to Altissia but then your car breaks down. So you go stay at a hotel and then learn about the fall of your homeland by reading about it in the newspaper the next morning (the actual story is in the Kingsglaive movie).
Almost the entire game takes place in a region that’s like the size of a state park. There’s a whole network of little truck stop towns that are like 3 miles apart from each other.
One of the first quests is to drive a couple miles and go buy some tomatoes because the diner ran out.
There are some zany quest giver NPCs (lazy assholes) just standing around asking you to do their chores.
Lunafreya is barely in it and gets killed before you even get to interact with her.
There are parts where your party members conspicuously leave your party and have some mystery adventure that I guess happens in the DLC (haven’t played it)
And I took a picture of Cup Noodle with me into the afterlife.
OMG finally some who will appreciate FFXV
Final Fantasy XV - In Progress: Wow…
I’m not finished the game as yet, currently at Chapter 9, but I feel compelled to post my thoughts so far:
To which I can only start with wow. Wow. Without question, Final Fantasy XV is the most
DAMN ITdysfunctional and unfocused entry in the franchise.
Lol it’s true. You find out about the fall of Insomnia by reading it in the papers, then spend tens of hours dicking around in bumfuck nowhere, then finally you take a train to the empire and find out it’s already fallen.The open world section makes zero sense in the context of the story. It actually makes negative sense, if that's a thing. All it does is make you miss out on the biggest plot point in the game. Pointless trend chasing.
Finished the game this weekend. My god what an awful game. That game is terrible in every aspect except of what OP says about the characters and their relationship. Looks awful even on PS5... 1080p 60fps and a lot of pop-in, jaggies, etc. The magic sucks... when i realice the spells had a limit of casting i forgot about it. Decided to play it on easy and only do the story. I forgot about everything else. At the end my level wasn´t high enough but at least there was no game over i just attacked until beating the bosses. Hated those last bosses. What the hell did Square do with this franchise?Started playing it yesterday because of the PS plus collection of course. Some friends played it when it was released and didn't like it.
I really liked the characters from XIII except for Snow, his personality was awful. he sounds really dumb, but I can't deny he is a hottie. I especially liked Fang, Light and vanille. 13 had the best cast out of all the final fantasies.Game is a total clusterfuck. FFXIII at least had interesting combat and a guy with a bird in his afro.
