                    I don't like FFXV. I wish it had turn based combat.

                      This dude is like wrong every other sentence 13 vs was changed literally cause 13 sucked its sales droped by half each title also he left out unless it recently changed that 7 is the highest selling 1 with 20 mil + copys sold and X 2 was not well received it did almost as bad as 13 2 and this is why im cryin on the inside the fk up behind 10 2 n all the 13s is now in charge of the 7 remake so they took there best game n took the biggest shit on it i love FF i cant stand square enix he also left out how hiroguchi quit cause enix was cash grabing whores who could give 2 fks less about a good game 10 n 12 have enix name on them but they vertually had nothing to do with script or development except vaan n penelo in 12 they were primarily behind the 13 garbage also look in to that hiroguchi also wanted each title to be a contained story so the new wrighter would have complete freedom and not just re shit out assets basically everything enix does face it ff is gone they company got took over by jap EA

                        it's sad the video really goes over a lot of informations, sometimes the biggest ones very often. Like for example Final fantasy XIII was the worst received Final fantasy in the series due to its very linear nature and female lead, and divided everyone because back then we all wanted a very open world game. It sold very well, but every mention of ffxiii is filled was filled with hate ans square started to feel so ashamed they dropped every plan for the spinoffs of the FFXIII universe (fabula nova crystallis ) and even completely destroyed FF Versus XIII to remove every single mention and link to Final fantasy XIII, which gave Final Fantasy XV (and why it was so chaoticly done and had so many issues at launch).

                        You can still feel it to this day playing FFXV, and looking at old footage, you see how it makes so much sense that the game was in FFXIII universe. It was supposed (and still is somewhat) to be a darker side of FFXIII, and the setting, which is almost identical to the current game on some parts (they kept a lot of original assets, same heros, same city of insomnia, same monsters , even same bosses sometimes...), was much darker. The decision to make it a complete separate game while removing every single mention of FFXIII made it very schizophrenic, with very linear parts and very open parts, and dark atmosphere to very light, almost goofy atmosphere all of the sudden. It was for the worse it made a lot of holes in the game and the plot and both games suffered from that decision.

                        Playing XIII nowadays can make realize what they had in mind. They really wanted to make a huge Final fantasy universe, with lots of games, lots of story and elements, the XIII is so polished and so "perfect" on its presentation, it plays like a movie (part of the reason why it was so hated back then, while conversely it feels very fresh nowadays in a world filled with mindless openworlds.... like FFXV). Every single camera plan is well thought, the textures are incredible, the cinematics are beyond gorgeous and almost the best square has ever made, the graphics almost look better on some parts than those of FFXV and its a PS3 game released 10 years ago... it really feels like it was the highest investment they ever made quality wise, like they wanted to make something huge out of it. Such a disappointment it never came through and that they'Re still paying to this day the price of scrapping everything related to the fabula nova crystallis, to the point of completely alienating the games that were supposed to be part of it, because FFXV, or should i say Versus XIII, seemed to have even more potential than XIII.

                        For anyone curious, i suggest you to look at old trailers of Versus XIII on Youtube. Sometimes you cant even make a difference with the current FFXV since they are so closely related, but everyone agrees that it was much darker, coherent and promising game than what we have today

                                FF7 was my first FF. I was so dumb (young) i played the game without a memory card. before my older cousin told me about how the fck to get to disc 2 and 3 and the whole concept about saving (memory cards). The game was intense i remember crying during some parts.. its awesome. shoutout to ff10, ff12 & 7. Three awesome ones

                                    Too bad the Remake of 7 changes SOOO much... All they had to do is take the Original game, put it in todays graphics, and rake in the money... But they are trying to get lightning to strike twice, and looks like that may get burned because of it.

                                      @Sephiroth Crescent Apparently you havent PLAYED FF12, FF13 1-3, Hell, even FF15. While 15 has the most 'Hack and Slash' it has the Shitty Strategic Mechanic to it as well. The Attempt at a Real Time Combat system has never been well executed.

                                      And yes, as stated in an Interview at E3, there will be Microtransactions. SquareEnix may not be EA, But they are still in this for money and are going to milk it for all its worth. If you dont believe that, then you obviously havent been around the game industry, or ANY industry, for long...

                                      @Steven Porter so the entire game is trash just because of combat? Even though they said it's not just hack and slash it's strategic? And it's for both players? And no. There will be no microtransactions. EA is only that bad.

                                      @Sephiroth Crescent Yes, I do, because the Combat System is trash, Just like it was in 12, 13, and 15. FF doesnt need Micro Transactions either. But hey, we are gonna get em. And the Story was fine. If it wasnt, it wouldnt be the single most popular Final Fantasy ever made. And I cant think of a SINGLE final fantasy before 12 or 13 that we really learned much about the Supporting Characters. We dont know Jack about Quistis, other than she was a Young SEED and and Younger Teacher, Dont know anything about the other 2. In 9 we dont know anything about the knight or others. Because the Story is about the One or Two main characters, everything revolves around them and their struggle.

                                      @Steven Porter so? FF7 aged badly. Bad translation bad graphics short story, and you barely get to know the characters. Except Cloud. This is the FF7 they wanted to make but couldn't with technology limitations. You don't even know if it's gonna be trash.

                                      @Sephiroth Crescent Did I play it? Obviously not. Will I play it? Not a Chance. And No, Playing a Remaster with new graphics is no different than replaying the game with old, just with new graphics...

I first started with Final Fantasy X 10 Video Game on the PS2 back in Jr. High School. I am glad to be a fan of this great video game series ever since 2008 to now. This is one of the grestist vídeo game series ever made. An old friend got me into Final Fantasy cause he knew i enjoyed Kingdom Hearts a lot. Anyways this music on FF has such good music to listen to.
