So who else is playing FF15? What do you think of the game so far? PLEASE USE SPOILER TAGS IF NEEDED!!!

 

I am only on chapter 3 and loving this game. It just oozes charm. I dunno if it is just me.

 

I personally have played and beat almost every final fantasy with the exception of 9 and some of the online ones. So I figured I would get 15 and play it to completion as well. However, I gave myself one additional stipulation. I decided way back when to go into the game completely blind. I did not watch any trailers, I didn't watch any interviews, the anime, nothing at all. I wanted a fresh outlook on the game with as little to no hype as possible. Going into  the game all I knew was that his name was Noctis and he drove a car around a big world. That was it. I dunno if that is increasing the experience for me, but regardless I am 12 hours in and loving the game. 

 

See normally I am relatively harsh on video games, and FF15 does everything I am harsh on games for. Long repetitive fetch quests, go to point A kill monster B, rinse and repeat. (Also the car being on rails is disappointing, but I understand why they did it and it does work so it isn't a major complaint for me) But for some reason, I am really liking this game. I dunno if it is the combat or the characters, but something about this game keeps me sucked in.  I kinda also am a huge sucker for that road trip mentality, getting friends in a car and traveling to destinations. 

 

I guess if FF10-2 got away with the sisterhood of traveling pants, FF15 can get away with Bro-session. Horrible comparison I know. Shoot me.

 

 

Also post your best photos if you take any!

FF9 is my ultimate rainy day game. I've been saving it for years now.

 

FF4 is probably my favorite main entry. In terms of favorite FF game ever, it is Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the Gamecube.

 

FF7 was my first FF game, I remember being blown away that I needed 3 disks back on my PS1.

I've heard a lot of good things about the game, unfortunately I don't have a PS4 (yet). I am intrigued by the idea of magic and monsters in a world that also has cars and coleman camping equipment

It is a really cool game, I love the modern day take on a new frontier aspect. Kinda like if the wild west was full of monsters and it was modern day still....

 

It is really charming and that is why I personally love the game, it is all the small things that come together to make something good. Polish can make or break a game.

The only FF game I've ever fully completed was FF4 (US2). Aside from that I've played most of 6 and the beginning of 7.

I've put in some serious time to the game now and I still like it a lot, albeit the quests are crap because they are so repetative. I am glad there are a ton though, gotta give me something to do till KH2.8 comes out.

 

 

Also look at this sweet screenshot, Prompto takes some nice photos.

FF1 is really unforgiving, I died several times on the way to Level 10. Gave up after going to the volcano dungeon.

Currently halfway through FF6.

FF6 was really good until one point that makes me hate the game and is the sole reason I refuse to replay FF6....

 

FF1 was good, I found it somewhat easy. I hated FF2. Still never beat it, way to lazy to spend hours attacking my own party members to raise my HP so I don't die. To tedious and not my cup of tea....

 

And I just hit level 50 on FF15.... I have done very few main story missions and am double the level of the main quests I am on.... Gonna go for 100% Plat trophy on PSN.....

Final Fantasy 8 is actually my all time favourite FF game (I played it first time waaay back in 1999, and it was my first FF). I absolutely love everything about that game. I wish they'd remake it but keep everything as-is. Sigh.

 

I never finished FF9 but enjoyed it. FF10 was beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it still didn't top FF8. Never played FF11, FF12 was disappointing as an FF game but still good as a sort of separate thing. FF13 was more disappointing. :/ Too linear, not enough exploration, and I personally am not a fan of a female lead character (even though I'm female). Especially a stoic one. Even though Lightning's visual design was GORGEOUS. The FF games are ALWAYS gorgeous.

 

I've been following the hype of FF15 for yeaaars, and I was so glad when it finally came out. I played it start to finish in about six consecutive days, getting very little sleep--that's how much I love it. I'm waiting for all the additional content to come out before I play through it again. It's fantastic. <3
