    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    You have to wonder how stat-building being so important in XII would be succeeded by having only two stats in FFXIII. Similarly, the sizeable stat matrix of FFXIV (the biggest seen in a FF to date) being succeeded by again only having two stats in FFXV. At least in the case of FFXII, it actually...

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    I can agree with this, but only on your stance of significance. Every FF that used ATB had a number of stats that all influenced battle. Let me use FFVII for example. There's 13 different stats that influence battle, with 3 of these being percentages. This is more than even FFXII. These were...

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    Tabata has said the battle system in FFXV is mostly based on Type-0, which outside magic, was also based on the two stats of Attack and Defense. FF needs to start building on the foundation of deep battle systems, not weak ones. ATB was deep in FFIV and if you check the status screens of any...

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    Skyrim has 18 different stats that operates as skills the player can level up. This many stats in one game is more than any FF ever created. Skyrim has shipped over 20 million worldwide as of January 2014. The highest selling Final fantasy is FFVII, with 11 million sold. Therefore, I think more...

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    Good observation. I thought both KH1 and KH2 had a very similar UI. Below is the UI from KH1. However, as you can see, there's a Status screen to see more info. However, when you go to this Status screen, you'll find that Sora has only 2 stats, just like the cast of FFXV. These two stats are...

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    Here comes the FFXV defense force. LOL! Sorry, but I don't want to start a war here. I just wanted to voice my opinion and that's that. I hope I didn't cause too much offense by dissing a game you're hyped for, but as somebody that values the RPG matrix, FFXV is now looking even more less...

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    Yes, that's the only saving grace right now. Hopefully, that is just a basic preview of the full list of stats which are hidden deeper in the UI. However, I've never seen a mainline FF game show stats in the main menu before now. This is what leads me to believe those are the real stats...

    FFXII team are the only mainline team that still care about the RPG matrix in Final Fantasy games. This team will always be my favorite.

    FFXII team are the only team that still care about RPG stats!

    It's an unfortunate turn of events when story is viewed as so important in mainline FF that the developers no longer care about the RPG matrix enough to provide loads of different stats that influence battle and player customisation. This is my new gripe with FFXV. I know I said I wouldn't...

    SE Business Divisions / FF16 Ito Debate goes here & nowhere else

    The irony is that both Yoshinori Kitase and Naoki Yoshida keeps name dropping FFXVI without journalists even asking about it. I think when they ask directly about FFXVI, they get no response. However, when they ask a question in a indirect way that hits FFXVI, they find that Kitase and Yoshida...

    When do you think XII HD will be announced?

    We don't know when FFXII HD started, so it could have been worked on in secret since around 2012, which is a year after FFX HD was announced. Therefore, it could be pretty far along. Also, the main art director of FFXII was Hideo Minaba, so they would likely have already contracted him by now to...

    My new avatar is official artwork for FFXIV Heavensward by Akihiko Yoshida. Glad he's still working closely with BD5. Hope he's on FFXVI.

    When do you think XII HD will be announced?

    TGS 2016. Yes, that's next years event. I'm keeping my expectations in check.

    SE Business Divisions / FF16 Ito Debate goes here & nowhere else

    He'll have to say something or just dodge the question completely. If he dodges the question, that will say a lot more than if he even bothered to answer it. LOL! The thing is they don't completely dodge the question. They answer it by saying he has his own team and planning his own project...

    Yuji Horii really likes FFX & XII, reconfirms Theathrythm is not up to him & much more

    Of course you don't need to know him to be a JRPG fan. That's obvious. It's the same with how you don't need to know Shigeru Miyamoto to be a platformer fan, or know Yu Suzuki to be a fan of 3D fighting games. However, finding them out shows a willingness to pay homage to the roots of a genre...

    Yuji Horii really likes FFX & XII, reconfirms Theathrythm is not up to him & much more

    As I said, he's not well known in the West. I mean, you didn't even know who he was and you're a huge JRPG fan! LOL! It's in Japan where he's famous. Considering FFXII sold many copies there, but got a mixed reception, his opinion would definitely change the overall view of the game. You...

    Yuji Horii really likes FFX & XII, reconfirms Theathrythm is not up to him & much more

    I wish you were joking, but I know you're not. I'd tell you that you should be ashamed of yourself, but you clearly know that already. That being said, I'm glad this thread allowed you to find out about the man. He's a living legend and the father of JRPGs. In Japan, he's second only to Shigeru...

    Now that I think about it, if FFXII HD is announced at TGS, Hiroyuki Ito may have to make a public appearance to talk about the game. That being the case, I hope any journalists that interview him ask what he's been doing at Square Enix since 2007. It will be interesting to hear his response.

    Yuji Horii really likes FFX & XII, reconfirms Theathrythm is not up to him & much more

    I agree with you. It's similar to how fans of a specific film director force themselves to like films that the director has said they like. I'd rather it didn't happen, but such a practice sometimes allows an underdog film or arthouse film to shine. It would otherwise get ignored by the masses...

    SE Business Divisions / FF16 Ito Debate goes here & nowhere else

    Yeah, the 10% change comes from Parasite Eve being taken out of the picture. The only other candidates are X-3 and Front Mission, and I don't see him working on any of those over being Event Director for FFVII Remake. The game means too much to him; he even wanted to remake it after he finished...
