Guess who got emotionally scarred again by playing the Platinum Demo after finishing FFXV?
Me. I did. I never played the Platinum Demo (nor Episode Duscae, bad move on my part). So when I saw that it was still available, I tried it out.
DON’T DO THIS GUYS.
Playing as cute baby Noct when you know how his fate turns out is going to HURT. A LOT.
Especially when you:
- learn that one of Noctis’s most treasured gifts from Regis was a soccer ball that he had always asked for. Then what he just wanted was for his father to play with him. But since Regis is a busy king, he can’t. So Noct would just wait by the Citadel steps every sunset waiting for Regis to come home, but no one shows up. So he just learned to ‘not care’ anymore.
- You’re led to believe that his ‘safe place’ is the Citadel, Insomnia. But after you fight an Iron Giant, baby Noct’s real ‘safe place’ appears: the REGALIA. It’s because when he’s riding the Regalia, he gets to be with Regis all the time.
(then he gets to be with Prompto, Gladio, and Ignis later on) This makes the whole crash at Gralea and Noct saying goodbye to the car all the more painful. (It was already painful to begin with; but knowing this makes it especially tortuous).
Noctis has been dealt such a shitty hand. Best worst sacrificial lamb ever. He needs a real happy ending!
TABATA WHY DO YOU MAKE US CRY ALL THE TIME?!
