    Your point? The characters and even gameplay actually made me love and appreciate FFXIII even more after playing XV

    Considering SE made nothing of interest since FF X and that the guy in charge of making some of the only half decent stuff since then has left . . . well, things don't look too good for them lol
    Are they gonna go the way of Konami and shift towards mobile and pachinko for salvation lol

    Idk 15 honestly made 13 look better both stories were linear, but damn it 13 had character development from the start to end. You had an attachment to them and could relate to their issues.
    Eh 15 we had to buy season passes just to identify the background of the characters in our party

    If you preordered the deluxe edition with the movie you had to pay 130€ for a somewhat complete experience.
    Or you can buy the steam version instead of the DLC and still have spent 115€ in total.
    You're screwed anyways because you paid more than 100€ for a game that is the most dumbed down and empty version of a Final Fantasy game so far.
    I enjoyed World of Final Fantasy a lot more even though it is padded out like s*** but it's still a complete game with new and interesting concepts.

    its kinda shows whats gonna happen with Final Fantasy 7 Episodes Remake isn't it? Same thing happened with TellTale. People will play the first episode and abandon or just forget about the game later.

    SE needed to make the full FF7r game then target the first 'holiday' of the ps5 console launch

    Ikr? It would've filled up more plot holes and focused in on characters that didn't get much screen time or development. Now that's probably all lost to the void. Would've "completed" the game more.

    I'm kinda just shocked because they made a big deal about the DLC, that there'd be an alternate ending, that they wanted the game to be an ongoing product shaped by fans, etc. Now all of a sudden it's cancelled and I guess it's time to look forward to FF16?

    I will never play FFXV, I do not like the drawing style of characters.
    I will not miss any additional unwanted content.
    Last FF is IX.

    I personally as a big big fan of the series from the beginning would say, this was since final fantasy 10 the first good one again... I would say XIII was much worse

    I really enjoyed this whole game and the dlc with ignis was perfect. I know all the bromance could be a little less, but it is a final "fantasy" game and when you sink in in that world - it was (for me) a really good game. Especially the soundtrack. When the "stand by me" played it was "mehhh - gaaay" but when this song playing again at the end of the game.... Damn that really got me! And I really felt with this world etc.

    For me - I don't need more DLC's. The story is for me closed and I am happy with it.

    Wew lad.

    Final Fantasy XIV practically funds Square Enix and you say silly shit like that. Thank you for the laugh.

    Good riddance. Funny that one person leaving is an auto cancel everything.

    Best of luck to him and his future endeavors.

    FF XV is the worst Final fantasy ever. I don't really care about the game anymore.

    Ouch that hurts for people who wanted to see ff15 be finished. The game is super unfinished and only the dlc gave some hope to get a complete experience.

    I love FFXV story plot to be honest. Its definitely not well delivered in the game. But just diving into the lores, the story about kings struggle and conflict, both noctis and ardyn is awesome. Was looking forward for the DLCs. Too bad
