        The little they've shown has been very good, and the fact that they're confident enough not to constantly overpromise and overhype like with what happened to XV has only raised my hopes. I'm still very much looking forward to it.

        I have a feeling the final trailer they show us will be focused on Clive as an individual. The trajectory of the trailers so far has been
        >It's a new Final Fantasy
        >Here's the new combat
        >Here's some world building
        With the next ones hopefully showing off some world traversal, cities, and eventually more of Clive himself.

        I'm not gonna shit on Clive since tbf we haven't seen much of him in the trailers but he seems like an easy-going kid before all that chaos happens to turn him into angry future man but yeah as much as I shit on XV, Noctis did have a surprising amount of expressiveness. I was actually surprised how human he was compared to how the early trailers had him come off as just some mopey pretty boy. Him being kind of an emotional dork and chill bro was a very welcome surprise.

          Since the development of versus XIII and XV were such a shitshow, I'm still surprised they ended up with something at all - given that the originally intended stories for all the characters were discarded.

            It's actually incredible how much of a shitshow development was. It's nothing short of miraculous they churned out XV at all. the game is horrendously flawed but there is still some shit to be enjoyed here and there and that's the most incredible thing about it.

              The worst part of XV probably wasn't the game itself, but a lot of the staff that left after Tabata came in to take over. I don't have the image, but some folks do and it lists a bunch of lead developers that are no longer at SE.

                It's funny really because Emet as a character is what Ardyn was supposed to be if they'd actually given him an arc in the game rather than in tie-in materials. A tragic villain with motivations you can agree with if seen from their perspective.
                Emet is Ardyn done right.

                I could be wrong but I believe I read somewhere that they were planning to make Emet like Ardynn, until they went a different route because "doing it again was wrong". Glad they changed plans

                the most popular ff16 video isn't even for ff16 its an april fools upload of a cgi character prototype trailer by visual works that the uploader called ff16 as an april fools joke and after ff16 got announced he changed it to ffxvii but left the xvi text in the video thumbnail

                you're just proving people don't play 14 they just watch the expensive cg trailers which the game is nothing like

                the most viewed ff14 trailer is a fucking commercial with tom holland so literally just celebrity clicks and it practically doubles the 2nd highest upload which is just uematsu music video

                15 sold more than 7 in the US
                15 sold more in 6 years than any FF ergo is more profitable in 6 years than any FF was in 6 years, and since its the latest mainline FF we judge only by how long its been since it released so xv is the actual most profitable FF
                XV mogged those both in all of those yes
                How does it feel knowing FF14 has won less awards than xv and lower userscore average than XV and nobody remembers anything from 14
                14 has no icons, no iconic vehicle, no iconic location, no iconic design, 14 has nothing, its completely devoid of iconography
                even the car in xv has more character and personality than anyone in ff14

                This is what happens when you kick out Takeshi Endo in favor of Yasuyuki Matsunami from the Type-0 team. You don't make a PSP game dev make an open world for a next-gen console, you have your sempai from the Tokyo Team help you out on making small zones much bigger and interconnected. Why Tabata fired these people when Nomura left is beyond my comprehension.

                FF15 sold faster than every FF ever
                XV sold 10m+ in 5.5 years and was at 9.8m in 5 years
                It took ff7 over 10 years to him 10m and it was at 9.8m in 2006
                It took ff10 over 15 years to hit 10m
                It took ff8 20 years to surpass 9m
                15 is literally the only FF to ever sell better in a shorter period of time than every FF before it since og ff7 was doing it and since FF8 temporarily outpaced 7 for a year before 7 going back
                and 15 outpaced both and at the rate it has sold could literally not sell anything for another 5 years and it'll still be outpacing every FF
                15 has the single best selling legs out of any ff in franchise history
                16 looks like fucking garbage which is why nobody cares
                XV KEEPS OUTPACING EVERYTHING
                even now 6 years after release its outpacing evety FF and also has outpaced and sold better than every FF on steam in a fraction of the time its been on it compared to the others

                Are you fucking retarded?

                If selling 10m in 5.5 years isn't better legs than selling 10m in 10 years then you have no fucking idea what good sales legs are

                Nice false equivalence retard

                XV has only been out 6 years
                comparing equal timespans is the only fair comparison and that's literally how every fucking console sales get compared too

                Nobody cares that ps4 sold over 110m now when comparing to PS5s current number
                The only accused comparison is how many ps4 sold in the same timespan from release as from PS5s release to now

                Ergo the only valid sales comparisons is the same timespan XV has been out for for each FF which is 6 years

                FF7 was at 6.57m in 2 years, 9.3m in 5 years and 9.8m in 9 years, took 10 years+ to hit 10m
                FF8 was at 8.1m in 4 years and took 20 years to hit 9m
                FF9 was at 5.3m in 3 years and 6m in 18 years
                FF10 was at 6.6m in 2 years and 8.5m in 13 years and 10m+ after over 15 years
                FF12 was at 6m in 3 years and 7m in 12 years
                FF13 was at 6.6m in 3 years and 7.2m in over 10 years
                FF15 was at 6m 1 month, 6.5m 11 months, 7m 1 year, 7.7m in 1 year 9 months, 8.1m in 1 year 10 months, 8.4m in 2 years, 9.8m in 5 years, 10m+ in 5.5 years

                It has already outsold 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10-2, 11, 12, 13, 13-2, LR 14, 7R, 7CC, 7DC, FFT, FFTA, FFTA2, DFF, DFF012, DFFNT, FFCC, FFT-0

                It took 10+ years of FF7 and 15+ years of ff10 across way more platforms to do what FF15 did in 5 years 5 months on only 3 platforms.

                It's funny really because Emet as a character is what Ardyn was supposed to be if they'd actually given him an arc in the game rather than in tie-in materials. A tragic villain with motivations you can agree with if seen from their perspective.

                >most common DLC trophy for FFXV (Gladio's DLC) has an average completion rate of 5.6% across 5 regions on PSN (Not PSNProfiles)
                >5.6% of 8,000,000 players on PS4 = 448,000
                >most common DLC trophy for KH3 Remind has been unlocked by 8.9% of players
                >8.9% of 5,500,000(est) players on PS4 = 489,500
                This is assuming the best case scenario for FFXV where all 8 million PS4 users bought the Season pass, rather than buying Royal Edition which came with it bundled.
                Remind also cost $5 more and reused more assets so it was most likely cheaper to produce, making it more profitable. You lost.

    Both trailers are among the worst I've ever seen for a game. Story is generic as fuck (empire here, army there), world and characters are bland, art and animation looks cheap, gameplay looks like mindless button mashing, particle effects littering the screen to a sort of unrecognizable mud. I mean, there is litterally nothing exciting about these videos - for me at least.

    Now if we assume that a company generally tries to use trailers in order to present their product in the best light possible, then I think I am free to make some assumptions here - before seeing the final game. For the love of SquareEnix I hope that my assumptions are wrong. However, I am massively disappointed already.

              The most disturbing thing about Barry is that throughout all these years of shitposting he doesn't even use copypastas except for his OPs. He repeats the same nonsense ad nauseam typing it out every time, every day, every week, every month, every year.

                Pattern recognition is something schizos heavily struggle with, because the idea that coincidences are literally everywhere doesn't mean anything to them.

                One trailer 2 years ago when it was a single player game that got 800k views in 2019
                they didn't show it for Years after that
                It then got changed into a live service game and didn't even crack 400k views in 2021 or 2022

    The last trailer was pretty exciting. It feels like the game has been basically complete for a really long time and they're just dripping out the info until Forspoken comes out. From what I see it looks like there's a big variety of locales and you'll just globetrot the map in zones like FF12.
    What I'm really impressed with is the fact that they appear to have put a lot of thought into the worldbuilding. That book in the trailer has every single page rendered in a fictional language complete with its own fictional alphabet. I saw some guy on YouTube going through the entire book translating unseen lore entries.
    What I wanna see next are characters interacting with each other. Every trailer has basically been guys talking to other guys off screen. Maybe some world gameplay as well.

    FFXV's problem is the character designs aren't very marketable, forgettable even. Even an FF like say XIV which looks the closest to in style, had Y'shtola for example. Or XII which had Basch, Fran, or Ashe. Look at it this way, do you see anyone who could be the FFXV rep in a Dissidia game?

    I'm gonna be honest, - ambition is what murdered the last few entries. They released half-baked because they bit off more than they could chew.

    If this game prioritizes being fun, and being a COMPLETE game - I'll give it an earnest shot. Yeah it looks a bland, but maybe XVI is what we need after the shit XIII trilogy, filler injected FFVIIR, and the empty sandbox boyband simulator with XV.

      It's mostly because SoP trailers were full of good shitposting material while simultaneously being really earnest that alot of anons had fun with while XVI takes itself too damn serious for any real fun to be had while waiting for it to come out.

    Final Fantasy doesnt need to be ambitious. all you need to make a good Final Fantasy game is TURN-BASED COMBAT, a creature party member, and a sci-fi fantasy setting. It's that easy.

    why are they putting this fag on the cover? They're making the same mistake as XV. They just put those faggy men on the cover, but no one cares. Everyone was making memes about the same thing, calling XV some gay Backstreet Boy shit. They need to start marketing hot women with big tits. SE is starting to lose their touch with the gamer audience. I get that there are a lot of trannies in FF14 Crystal data center, but those people are not buying this game dude.

                Remind also cost $5 more and reused more assets so it was most likely cheaper to produce, making it more profitable. You lost.

              all took place after base game and he's just a cameo in ep prompto not doing anything we didnt know from base game in any bro dlc
              his story is in base game and he literally explains it and so does Bahamut and talcott

              he shows up chapter 1, chapter 3, chapter 4, chapter 5, chapter 7, chapter 9, chapter 10, chapter 11, chapter 12, chapter 13 and chapter 14

              Meanwhile emechuds entire story is a retcon of xiv 1.0 with the solus background character then had sb patch be his actual introduced then needing a dlc xpac to actually give his backstory which again is a retcon of xiv 1.0 since emet never existed back then, and then ew retcons him further and is required to get his actually story of him being an emo gay who lied about it being a paradise and baaaaaws like a gay because he gets beaten by a generic power of friendship beam from literally nowhere

              meanwhile ardyn fully succeeded because the crystal is already dead by the time the timeskip happens and he fulfills his goals of ending the crystal, caelums and the true king dying and by proxy his original goal to purge the starscourge which happens in addition to beings freed from his curse of immortality

      Unlikely.It was looking at first like there'd be an Ivalice style set of "light eikons" and "dark eikons", two for each element, but after the last trailer and the reveal of a fused Phoenix-Ifrit as the big bad it seems unlikely.
      The ??? eikon from the second trailer might just be a larger corrupted form of Titan.

      There were only two camps you could've ended up in when it came to VSXIII/XV.
      The pissed off camp when XV either took to long, didn't end up being what it was when first announced, Nomura being removed and PSP dev being put in charge (in love with killing off main characters may i add). So they shit on XV whenever it's brought up.

      The schizo camp really aren't all that different. They got so mindbroken over XV not being what they had built up in their minds over the years they just can't admit to themselves over how shitty it is and produced people like Barry.

            Even if there is influence in the architectural designs of the cities, my point being is that the aesthetic of this game is extremely fantastical and not as unimaginative as FFXV

              This. XV just blatantly copied Shinjuku for Insomnia, Havana for Lestallum and Venice for Altissia.
              Altissia contains a carbon copy of the Piazza San Marco and Doge's Palace.
              Beyond that there's the mind-numbingly boring gas stations and industrial warehouses.

              Tenebrae was the only location that had an interesting design stemming from concept art and all there was of it in the game was a burning background at a train station.

                Meanwhile in reality
                altissia is as much venice as midgar is new york and deiling is Paris

                I still don't understand how in the fuck does that waterfall even exists in the middle of the ocean. Should'nt it be filled up by water? Thus making it, just an ocean?

                FFXIV had this sort of terrain first.

    feels good to live in a world where FFXIV (Final Fantasy 14) has fire firaga and firaja while FFXV (Final Fantasy 15) only has grenades instead of magic, doesn't it barry?

    Tell me Barry, where are all the Forspoken threads doing the same?
    Shouldn't you be making Forspoken threads instead? I fear your current tactics might be counterproductive.

      I don't think he's even done everything the game has to offer. He never beat Omega on PS4 and has still to prove he's done it on PC.
      But I guess he'd rather just spend every day doing this instead.
