  • Honestly, I'd be more than comfortable with SE not bothering with announcing XVI at all this year if it meant leading into a date being a year away between it's reveal.
    Its ironic how barely anyone will bat an eye at a JRPG scoring low 80s unless its a mainline FF....

    I think that's because FF has unrealistic expectations attached to the brand ever since the world went mad for VII. Nothing seems able to match that, but people won't drop the idea that FF needs to reach that point again. It doesn't. It's moved on from that into another era, where the future's uncertain. I'm more puzzled that Dragon Quest keeps getting such high scores when it hasn't properly evolved in decades.

    @SonOfEtro Dragon Quest keeps getting high scores because they're still good games. Not every series needs to completely revamp itself with every release to be considered such; never mind the fact that DQ's installments do iterate various aspects of the game from title to title while still maintaining an essential core to the series.

    @SonOfEtro I'd argue, frankly, that Dragon Quest's path is more viable to be given the moniker of "evolution" - a slow, incremental process - than Final Fantasy's, which is more built around ideas of non-continuity and radical revamping nowadays and perhaps "cyclical revolution" would be the phrase behooving that more.
    After KH3, i really can't help myself but chuckle at anyone vehemently holding belief that Stella would have been an extremely well-written main heroine under Nomura.
    My decision to push Gamefaqs out of my browsing experience has been a good one upon revisiting it recently.
    While I'm really hyped for TLOU2, I currently have somewhat mixed feelings about Neil Druckmann.

    Is it for where he's taking TLOU2?

    Idk how to put it into words, but it's more to do with how he's trying to attract a certain audience towards the game which I hope isn't at the expense of a good plot.

    It's this utterly ridiculous idea that someone who is not "beholden" speaks nothing but the truth; also journalists "all have an agenda and can't be trusted". This fuels trust into these YT types, even if they spout utter bollocks.

    Ok maybe not "DLC" but more as, the themes you unlock after beating each game/movie.
