    FFXII and FFXIII felt like complete experiences to me (that doesn't mean i think they are masterpieces or anything), the same is true for FFXIV: ARR (not the original); so i disagree with you for the most part, and i just think we have different definitions of what "complete" is.

    Ignoring the rest where I said XV is lacking regardless of it being finished or not. Unless the previous greats. XIII is mediocre garbage, XII is alright so far.

    Quality wise after 10
    Sales wise it never died.
    Though when it does whether people will be happy or sad about that, I don't know.

    it might be lower quality if we go in numbers (like metacritic), but its not even a huge gap to justify "it's dead" comments, they are still great games either way.

    which just shows how the hyperbole really can turn ppl into irrational trolls, and im pretty sure there were ppl justifying FF being dead using sales as an argument.

    it was funny.

    edit: for the post below, see critics and user scores.

    Let's not derail this topic further, anyone that wants to continue debating can either create a new thread or take it to private message.

    FFXV made money, and that should make everybody happy who wants to see the series continue.

    Recall that Tabata's GDC presentation was "Final Fantasy - A Challenger Once Again" -- challenger being the operative word. Whatever the faults of the game (and use other threads for any and all assertions-as-fact whining) The fact that SE reported record-high revenue and profits tell me that -- in addition to pulling a failed project to a 6M+ selling game -- BD2 also built a better development pipeline that hopefully will pay dividends in the future.

    Arguing metacritic aggregate scores alone is a horrible measure at entailing a detailed, accurate description of a what a game does right/wrong.

    Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne (82), Suikoden 2 (82), and Parasite Eve (81), ALL three RPGs considered classics scored low 80s (worse than FFXIII's 83). Does that suddenly devalue their actual quality? Not at all.

    There is more than enough evidence to conclude that despite a vocal hysterical group saying otherwise, FFXV has a lot of fans who genuinely enjoyed their time with it in spite of issues. Theres no need to drag this out when S.E. is in a far better position than they were last gen moving forward.
