    Looks like a difference in art style and lighting tbh.
    Graphics have been fantastic for a couple of console generations, now. If a game looks like shit, that's down to art direction and/ or general incompetence on the dev's part.

      I think the issue with FF16's cutscenes is that they don't have any sense of cinematography in them.

        They do seem to be very boring, even the action of two giant summons seemed boring. How did the devs possibly fuck that up.

        They probably have a different guy to do the storyboards and cinematography. Though to be fair, XVI's trailer so far hasn't had a long continuous scene being played. They almost always cuts away to something else. Anyways, aren't directors usually the one decides the camera angle/cinematography and whatnot.

      That doesn't justify FFXI for being visually shit.

      In 2009 the ingame models in general had already achieved the visual fidelity of the prerendered CGIs from the early 00s.

    Games like XIII and XV pretty much relied on pretty graphics while having shit stories and mediocre gameplay.

      XIII had decent lore to keep you entertained. For some reason, datalogs weren't a hit.

        Nobody wants to constantly stop to read a novel when playing.
        You'd think the japs would've solved this already since there's several thousand JRPGs with large amounts of text to read but with FFXIII it was especially annoying, they did not interweave it into the story like most JRPGS would've.

          Why? That's the lore.

          They did. All of the concepts fall neatly into place. They just expect you to read the datalogs if you care to know what's going on.

                It is just objectively better to have NPCs tell the player things than just reading a book you find in the world. Dialogue is more interesting

                Yeah, because of shit taste. No one likes exposition fairies either. Can't blame devs for trying something subtler.

                It would be way better to introduce basic world concepts and then get extra autistic in datalogs. With FFXIII everything was just confusing off the bat and people who wanted to learn by playing the game just get more frustrated over time and then they see that they have to read a fucking book with the amount of backed up unread datalogs to get what the fuck is happening.

                They do introduce the concepts. They just don't tell you what they mean unless you look them up, because Lightning having to tell Hope what a Pulse Fal'Cie is would be retarded.

                Maybe, but sometimes characters have to do a retarded thing to serve the narrative properly.
                Don't get me wrong, info dumping is certainly bad, but if the two options are "hear characters talk about this info" or "read the info from a document" the vast majority of normal people will pick the former over the latter

                Why even denounce exposition fairies like it isn't what the majority wanted then? XIII tried to please them by putting it in a format that allowed the story to make sense. This is the customers' fault, unironically.

                Look man, I know that autism makes certain things hard for you to understand, but no one wants to go into a menu and read a small novel to find out what the fucking a basic aspect of the world is like a Pulse Fal'Cie
                You can't just have characters throw around words that only mean something within the setting without even an attempt to give context
