    After playing XIII, I swore I'd never play another Final Fantasy game ever again. That stands until I hear the words "this Final Fantasy game is fun and isn't so melodramatic."

    SE is simply amazing at pleasing and alienating fans at the same time.

    Versus XIII was always the only XIII game I cared about. Excited to see that's it's now XV. Now hopefully they'll fucking release it at some point.

    this looks fucking gorgeous and XII was an amazing game, 13-2 was pretty good and I have high hopes for Lightning Returns, but I can't even begin to describe how excited I am for this.

    Edit: XBOX ONE?! Now I don't even need to buy a PS4.I can't even contain my excitement.

    After playing XIII, I swore I'd never play another Final Fantasy game ever again. That stands until I hear the words "this Final Fantasy game is fun and isn't so melodramatic."

    I found no joy at all in X, and it's the first game they made a direct sequel to. That's when I knew they had given up on the tone and style of IX. And maybe, from a business standpoint, they made the right call. Maybe folks like you and I are too rare to pay the bills. But I'm still a little disappointed.

    What does that even mean? Just dropping the numbers? There's no continuity among the franchise, so what would get carried backwards to the beginning of the "reboot?"

    I haven't been so hot on anything Final Fantasy since after X, but this looks dumb and over the top in a way I can totally get behind. And damn pretty as well.

    This look absolutely amazing, but they are spending way too much time and money making these games. Kudos if this actually turns out good, but the flashy, over the top stuff isn't what I come to Final Fantasy for.

    I'm cautiously optimistic, but games with that budget and development timeline have a bad record.

    Versus XIII always looked more interesting than XIII. Like a slightly more mature Kingdom Hearts.

    I wasn't interested in this when it was XIII, but now that it is XV I will totally get it. It's got names that are vaguely of a Western spiritualism feel. It's got androgynous boys with guns touching each other. It's got old men with wry smiles, and a whole ton of jibber jabber to boot.

    I've been replaying FF6, and the best part about that game is how it barely takes itself seriously.

    Modern FF's could use a lot of that nowadays, because I don't think they've got the writers to pull off something legitimately dramatic anymore.

    This is copy/pasted from my comment on the gameplay page.

    "Is anyone else reminded of platinum games by this. I think it looks pretty neat and I'm looking forward to playing this whenever the hell it comes out."

    "Does anyone else wish that after this square would just make a new final fantasy that's a throwback to the old days. They could focus on a good story, combat and music. I'm guessing there would be significantly less production costs and millions of fans would absolutely love something akin to FF 4/6, of course with modern day pixel art. That would be amazing."

    Well, atleast they have a gameplay trailer after 7 years. Gran Turismo developer PD must be hating Square Enix for breaking their record.

    They actually put out a phone game called Final Fantasy Dimensions last year that is exactly what you're talking about. I haven't played it, but reviews are mainly positive.
