[FFXV SPOILERS AHEAD] I saw the final fantasy xv cutscenes on youtube luna dies very early on the game and she gave up her life when noctis was dieing by healing him. You were sooo right about her being useless,damsel in distress and being a white mage healer,

[EVEN MORE FFXV SPOILERS AHEAD SO AVOID THIS ASK IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED]

I so knew this was going to happen.

Actually I was asked several times about this game and why it was a failure in my opinion and everything I said turned out to be true [1 2 3 4].

And it’s not like that I’m a an ~Oracle~ (I’m actually a magical girl) (and if I was, I can tell you I’d totally be a better one than Lunafreya given her role in the game LMAO). It’s just I’ve been a Final Fantasy fan since forever and I’ve been expecting and keeping up with Final Fantasy XV since day one when it was first conceived as Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

As you all already know by now, the game started to go downhill when former director Tetsuya Nomura left the project to work on FFVII Remake; then Hajime Tabata took over and finished the game as we know it today (yuck!).

Once Tabata took over, with every new trailer showing off the game there was always new backlash because of how different (and shittier) the story was getting and, of course, because of the never ending technical issues (ffs a brand new PS4 broke down trying to run a beta version of the game in a main event).

So now that the game is out I can officially say now why Final Fantasy XV is a failure (actually I’m one of those who attended the full gameplay with ending included of that sis whom streamed the whole game one week before release date but I wanted to wait once the game was out to reclaim my throne say it).

💥 Bugs, glitches and technical issues.

The game was getting messier and messier with each new demo. 

The last demo ~Judgment Disc~ was so full of this crap that players decided to go find the issues and post them on the internet rather than actually playing and enjoying the demo lol.

Not only that but also the game itself it’s so flawed (technically wise) that they had to release a day 1 patch (size: 7 GBs) to fix it.

All this comes from they don’t really knowing which direction to take.

They held several events showing the game progress so far and to get feedback from fans, they changed the mechanics so much because of this I think this really backfired and confused the staff even more (also they ignored the fans’ most important petitions so why even bother?).

💥 Lies, fairytales and fallacies.

(Rare picture of Tabata in drag).

Now that they game is out we can say that we’ve been lied to the face several times. Just to expose a few lies:

#1 On August 15 Tabata announced that the game would be delayed (again) setting the new release date two months later than the already set release date because they wanted to perfectly finish the game to avoid day 1 patches. Now the game is out and there is a HUGE 7 Gbs day one patch.

#2 The eternal Stella VS Luna issue / having strong female characters in the game. Although we’ll get to that in the next point, I just wanted to call out Tabata for saying how strong and powerful Luna is in the game and how a big important part of the story she is yet she barely gets 6 minutes of screen time and of course, miserably dies when you first meet her.

💥 The different and messy story, the flat characters and more.

(This false advertisement right here, there’s no female lead characters in this game #misogyny).

As we all already know, when Tetsuya left the project they shat all over his ideas and completely altered the story.

We went from the epic story of two houses / kingdoms at war and their respective heir and heiress (Noctis and Stella) who have to fight each other despite of obviously being ~in love~ to some ~bros before hoes~ nonsense.

Stella was back then the female lead and antagonist (?), basically Noctis’ female counterpart who also had the same gift as Noctis (she also could summon weapons out of thin air).

Then they altered the main plot (along with Stella and many more elements) because of lies (saying they wanted FFXV to stay a one installment game yet we got a movie, an anime series, some android games, and a long etc) and Stella was removed and instead they gave us Lunafreya (Luna for short) a different character whom was given Stella’s design. Your average damsel in distress / white mage healer (Kingsglaive already foreshadowed that) whom is the worst at it as well because I’ve never seen a worse written and powerless damsel in distress / white mage healer kind of character.

They made us believe she was still a big part of the story and the poor sis basically dies when you first meet her and barely gets 6 minutes of screen time. Basically a plot device as I guessed since she was revealed.

She’s basically a reason for Noctis to get a new weapon LOL.

Also her death is random, sudden and not even sad, I feel like they tried to make the next generation Aerith out of her but they failed miserably. Also, Noctis gets over his fiancée’s death pretty soon and neat so I guess everything is ok lmao (remember that he gets to own her trident once she dies so everything is cool amirite).

So long sis, we barely knew you.

So there are no powerful/empowering female characters in the game as Tabata said, actually there aren’t female characters in this game at all.

But who needs women in a game that’s all about male bonding?. As Tabata himself said, men don’t act naturally around women so they ditched having women in the party because you know he wanted to show a true and genuine male friendship which apparently can’t happen if women are around. You know, just emo frat boys that are all about ~BROS BEFORE HOES~ *FIST PUMP* that drive around hunting for beasts in a open world.

An open world that is not so ~open~, you spend the first half of the game randomly driving around wherever you desire to and then the game gets linear as fuck and you’re placed in one direction corridor hurrying to finish the events.

And before you get all BUT FINAL FANTASY X-2 IS ALL FEMALE AND NOBODY COMPLAINT1!11!!!.

First of all:

And second, that game is flawless, the characters are flawless, the story is flawless and the OST is epicly flawless.

Unlike FFXV where every character is flat and shallow and you don’t even bother when someone dies because you barely get to know them, not even your ~bros~ (the hunk, the average utterly annoying and childish one and the one with the accent).

And yes, everyone dies

Tabata pulled a Final Fantasy Type-0 ending (which he also directed) and kills off everyone at the end.

If the story is crap the ending is even crappier.

I have a lot more to say but since this rant thesis has gone too long now (I think you get my point by now) I’ll just end up saying that this game is a disappointment, a failure and didn’t live up to FF Versus XIII or fans’ expectations.

Of course some people will love it because it has the important stuff!11!!!.

Over 100 recipes for you and your bros!11!

And fishing!11!!.

And before you call me a huge hater bitch negative, I’m gonna list the actual good things about Final Fantasy XV.

#1 The OST.

#2 Hot Daddy Noctis.

That’s it.

However, these two (equally important) reasons are not enough for me to spend money on this flawed as fuck game.

I’ll just wait for the FFVII Remake (which, again, is being directed by the original Final Fantasy XV director) and count the days until I can see the best moment of that game in full HD 4K which we are all waiting for: Cloud in drag.
