Final Fantasy XV survey wants your opinion on post-release content By Erren Van Duine on February 11, 2017 at 6:02 PM

Square Enix has released an official survey, asking fans to weight in on various aspects of Final Fantasy XV. The survey, which can be accessed here, focuses on post-release content including DLC, Season Passes and general buying habits.

According to a mass email sent out to consumers, this survey will help Square Enix “shape the future of Final Fantasy XV.”

The survey comes on the heels of the latest Active Time Report, where director Hajime Tabata outlined a number of updates for the game slated to roll out starting February 21. Catch all the details here.

    Just finished it and gave these ideas at the end… even though it only asked for one question. I’m sure they’ll ignore it because of that…. But I couldn’t help myself. And I know I’m a broken record player for posting this list again and again.

    -Luna DLC Episode centered around her character development (She felt very
    lack luster in the game’s launch version)

    -Allow Cor, Aranea, and Iris to join in chapter 15 (past Lucis) and level up
    with the party as full party members (Only one of them at a time)

    -Bahamut and Ifrit summons in chapter 15 (Ifrit only works in the past)
    (Also it stands to reason you can since you didn’t have Shiva or Leviathan in
    past Lucis yet you can use them there too)

    -More tours around the world. (Episode Duscae had 5 alone) The full game
    should be packed with them.

    -Option to explore all (or most of) Insomnia (Past or timeskip), Tenebrae
    (Feels like a wasted opportunity currently), Niflheim (And I mean more than the
    linear capital (AKA the whole country), and Altissia (You mapped out most of
    Altissia anyway)

    -More Ravus content (Boss fight during first encounter in the Niflheim base
    before Ardyn shows up (Make him a real threat), improved characterization, and
    story details)

    -Post Timeskip Iris, Aranea, Cor, Cid, and Cindy (I know it might bog things
    down but allow the player the choice to go straight to the end or to mess
    around beforehand)

    -Kingsglaive Movie incorporated into the game as a playable scenario (Just
    use the film footage for cutscenes),this would allow movie threats enemies incorporated
    into the main game: Diamond Weapon, Cerberus, and those Starship Troopers bugs

    -Return of Glauca Episode (Surviving against Nyx, he hunts down Noctis for a
    side story) (Thus Noctis avenges his father, Luna’s mother, and Gladio’s Dad)

    -Playable Omen Trailer Story Episode (As a nightmare or a “what
    if”) (You have some of the areas already ingame) (Some not… I went looking
    for that tree)

    -Brotherhood segments incorporated into the game (You modeled a young
    Prompto so it stands to reason that you can do the rest for flashback segments)

    -Increase difficulty and dynamics to the Ardyn boss fight’s first and second
    phase (During the ground segment, Ardyn isn’t aggressive enough and gives too
    many opportunities to attack) (The flying segment is too simple and shallow. It
    needs more options and it doesn’t feel as epic as it should be)

    -Paid Full Expansions if some of these ideas are too big for Regular DLC/Updates
    (This could allow more large regions to be explored) (Could also fill out
    segments of the story which were lacking)

    -More Multiplayer options: Offline split screen and PVP

    -2 years of DLC/Update support for the game

  • Wazi the pa

    Guys, use the opportunity to give them constructive feedback. Be critical in your responses. Give examples if needed.

  • Artemis Polara

    I did. I didn’t insult or slander them. I approached it as someone who enjoyed it but wanted improvements as to what felt very incomplete.

  • Richard Steele

    An Ifrit summon wouldn’t make sense. He betrayed the other gods and caused the Starscourge/Daemons.

  • Artemis Polara

    Umbra being able to take you back in time and retain your abilities, outfits, and summons also don’t make sense yet there it is.

  • Lulu Mae Yeul

    I just want a Luna DLC

  • Doesntwork247

    i did my part and asked for that! hopefully they will read the comments and not just datamine the multiple choice section…

  • Randy Marsh

    You are right. They will ignore it entirely. Businessmen want to read things in a flash and get a simple gist of the overall feelings of their customers in a single sentence read….

  • Yuntu

    They did a pretty good job responding to feedback from Duscae etc. – I would hope they do the same here

  • Randy Marsh

    I just asked for additional cutscenes for Luna, seems more plausible than asking for an entire new zone to explore.

  • Artemis Polara

    It is what it is. However I’m not going avoid speaking my mind to them (alas though it’ll fall on deaf ears)

  • Artemis Polara

    Much more plausible than some who have asked in the past for a complete reboot of the game. 😛

  • Doesntwork247

    ahh good to hear. i was too cheap to buy Type-0 so didn’t get a chance to participate in the Duscae demo. I’m hoping to see meaningful updates and DLCs from SE over the next two years.

  • Yuntu

    depends on which ears will listen

    if it goes straight to the dev team, and enough people ask for similiar things, they may be able to do something – if it goes to the suits (or some outside company to get % data and stuff) first than yeah, deaf ears

  • Artemis Polara

    I just felt it listed most of the things people wanted overall.

    Although I’m sure some people don’t want full paid expansions… …. .. .. I only put it there since I felt it would be a reasonable way to produce large amounts of content.

  • Randy Marsh

    Yep. I mean if they ignore it, you spoke about your demands for the game in a calm and respectable manner. That my friend, is the most important thing at the end of the day.

  • Randy Marsh

    Oh lord, don’t remind me of those people….

  • •december

    OH SHIT ITS OUT!!!!!!!
    Final Fantasy XV fans UNITE!

  • •december

    Time to ask for that there Map of Eos, in full!

  • •december

    My answer: Plus side: Chapters 1-8 before Altissia, Chapter 13 and Pitioss are perfect. Down side: Great characters with little back story, Places talked about but never visited (Celluna Cascades, Haulhex Armory, Shiva’s head, Pagla etc), a lot of the build up & key plot points are missing.

  • •december

    24. Which of the future DLC in the season pass are you most looking forward to? (Select One)

    Pick ONE?????

  • Yuntu

    Yeah an Expansion could do wonders for this game.

  • •december

    *

    31.

    If you ask one thing to the developers of FINAL FANTASY XV, what would it be?

  • •december

    This was so revitalizing. It was so reassuring to let it out.

  • •december

    Umbra human form! #justiceforClarus

  • NotCarolKaye

    Same thing I’d have asked the developers of FINAL FANTASY XIII;

    What’s it like to have egocentric sh!theads complain about the amazing thing you made because it doesn’t match what they think it should’ve been?

  • Aulix Indragonz

    just finished it and yeah i gave a pretty mainstream opinion about it
    i want all the unreleased half baked part of the game released in full and exploreable
    i’m interested in niflheim in particular because it looked like insomnia in versus XIII days

  • Aulix Indragonz

    yeah because they can just finish those unfinished area that is explorable through glitch
    you can find dozen of those in youtube

  • gunjydna93

    Thank you for saying “-More Multiplayer options: Offline split screen and PVP”. Means everything to me so thank you very much!!!

  • gunjydna93

    The only thing I asked for was Local offline Player vs Player mode. Please Tabata

  • DairyQueen_DQ

    Game is great, but it didn’t feel like final fantasy to me. Felt more like a western final fantasy compare to the previous japanese final fantasy (im not talking about the gameplay).

    Gameplay:4/5 Enjoyed the fight. too bad your gun isn’t 3rd person shooting and only 1 gun is 1st fps. could have made leviathan and last battle better.
    Graphics: 5/5 loved every detail.
    Music: 4.5/5 Soundtrack is amazing, goes well with the game.
    Storyline: 2.5/5 didn’t feel complete. will change my opinion once the dlc is out.

    They should have made the movie part of the game where you can play as nix. if not go back to versus 13, but both of my ideas will never happen since the game is completed.

  • Randy Marsh

    I am aware of those videos, I’m not living under a rock. It is hard to explain to those who have never once taken classes in animation, modeling, or video games. However, those are not real areas meant to be explored obviously and were more just there to fill in map space.

  • Aulix Indragonz

    if they’re not real areas the are meant to be explored you will “drown” when you set foot in it
    but instead you can move there freely as if it’s working as intended
    let’s be real here, it’s there but you can’t explore it without glitch because SE ran out of time, they don’t have enough time to finish those areas, that is why they cut it out of the current game but the data still exist that is why the player can still go there

  • alef321

    don’t forget to request VS XIII skins and mention it every time you can.

  • Breathless

    Does it feel like there are more questions on everything “meta” than on actual post-release content?…

  • 2me

    in case developers are monitoring novacrystallis as well, leaving the link to my feedback
    http://blog.naver.com/n8account/220914790895

  • I guess you haven’t played through previous FF games where there are areas not meant to be explored (FFX, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, etc).

    That’s why the textures in FFXV aren’t even the same quality, and that’s why you can only access them by using a “glitch” on the map. And of course you can “drawn” yourself while exploring them; the map there doesn’t even work as intended (clipping, no collision range and the obvious physics not working as they should). The simple exploration of the north portion of the “glitched area” should be proof enough that said area isn’t meant to be explored as the game crashes there, while on areas that are near the actual playable area don’t crash nor suffer from crashes (meaning, the areas that seems to be explorable are near the actual playable area, so they may seem “completed”, but they are not part of the game).

  • Rowe

    Fixing the story with patches/DLC is too late for me. I enjoy first impressions only. But I do hope the best for the franchise and that fans get what they asked for.

  • Wazi the pa

    Realistically speaking, most of what you’ve listed there isn’t going to come to fruition.

  • “How do you feel about potential hidden spoilers being released to promote content?”

    The most valuable question. xD

  • OvanCross

    FFXV judgement trailer is the most fraustrating of all and my bad for watching it

  • OvanCross

    it’s really good you should send it to them, theres a lot of things they can pick up on these ideas.

  • OvanCross

    I love the game but give us parts of the dark versusXIII story to it. I like TBT but he put alot of his ego to FFXV.

  • CallMeGod

    This question just got me thinking they have no fucking clue what they’re doing anymore.

  • I am not even going to waste my time

  • •december

    Its so ffxv haters can get lost and the important burning feedback that the real fans have will remain because obviously the average gamer would get tired of the first 18 questions

  • •december

    You think the FFXV Team has time to care for 1 person who refuses to take the survey?

  • •december

    Yikes.
    Opinions war-zone in 3…2…1…

  • 2me

    thx, spend some time on this, hope they see the link I put it on the survery 😀

  • Chokoloco

    Paste that link in the last question of the survey, theirs some awesome ideas there

  • Chokoloco

    Write all that in the survey if you haven’t already

  • 2me

    I did, that the one thing I want to say to the developers XD reading what is on the link

  • I really do not care about what they choose to do with what I feel is broken game that is already being held-up with spit and glue that is beyond repair, I do not think that there is anything that they could do to this game put right and hence why I care not to waste my time

    I doubt that we will see all of the hopeful things that you have mentioned in you comments on various articles about the game

  • Ta’i Ngatokorua

    Wow you make it sound like the game is terrible.. it really wasn’t that bad. I loved it up until I got on the boat and it took me out of the open world aspect. Whilst it does need some improvements, it’s no where near as bad as you’re making it sound XD

  • •december

    Positive constructive criticism will be taken on board my friend 🙂 Just ignore this guy, you’re doing great

  • 2me

    On my survey I said ‘mercilessly cut and oddly glued by DLCs & patches’. Interesting to see people who use the same term for the impression of this game. There are too many plot holes and how they interpreted/focused the myth is … to put the words humbly, I wouldn’t say ‘it makes me laugh’ but still I would agree with that statement. Like you said, (in my opinion as well) story have to rewrite if they seriously concern to deliver the proper XV story therefore I don’t either care about editing nor enhancing. To me Tabata seems like a guy who are more into technical aspect and I feel like what they desire for technical visions are what gamers are looking for as well so I have a hope for this part, tho I also feel for the profit aspect of the further patches, costumers & SQ aren’t on the same page

  • Sorelle

    Least they’re letting us take a survey to hear what the community is asking for. Many things I was hoping for are being put into play. But I do wish they would make a DLC about Ardyn. He’s an awesome character which I love but would like to understand why he is the way he is. I have seen vids but would like to see square do it. Plus add the outfits from Verses 13, promto then looked way more badass then he does now in my opinion.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I remember Tabata even saying in an interview thag he REALLY regrets that part.

  • NoctLightCloud

    First impression only? It doesn’t matter for video games, but if you think so in general in life, then… you’re missing a lot in life. I hope you don’t :’)

  • NoctLightCloud

    Yes alef, we will^^

  • NoctLightCloud

    You spoke what was on my mind, DairyQueen!

  • NoctLightCloud

    Their job really isn’t easy… I’m seeing it in the Zelda, Pokemon, Yugioh, Resident Evil, Assassins Creed franchise as well.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Yes this is a good answer! If you don’t mind, may I write the same?^^

  • NoctLightCloud

    Wow! I’ll go google a bit now to find more about those areas you mentioned in older FFs. I only know about those in VII and XV, I had no idea about the other games.

  • NoctLightCloud

    The comment section is full of nice ideas this time. Some of them are very good, I hope they’ll come true 🙂

  • DairyQueen_DQ

    I did. Just wanted people to know what I wrote.

  • Syul

    [FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T FINISHED THE GAME: THIS COMMENT HAS SPOILERINOS]

    Finally done the survey! I’m glad they have one, that means they’re interested in feedback, which is always positive.

    The thing is, even if love FFXV and I enjoyed it a ton, I would have loved to see some things… But well, question #29 didn’t help much (just one question for the FFXV team and I had a lot of things going on in my head) and I got myself thinking about what I wanted to say…

    And, eventually, I answered this:

    “I could have asked a lot of things here, a lot of them, like, from addind a DLC for Luna or adding more party guests to make Niflheim and other areas explorable, going through getting more Nyx, more scenes or more visible information/lore…

    But these petitions I’m sure have already been said by a lot of people, so I’m going to just ask this:

    “Is there any chance we can have in the future an Ardyn DLC?” ”

    … Yep, I asked for an Ardyn DLC.

    I mean… First of all, I gotta say I’m Ardyn trash (ahh, my beautiful tragic bastard~) and that I have a soft spot for villains like him. The thing is, I think it would be interesting to not just know about his story but to live it, I would love to see him before/when he “fell”. Play as him during the game happenings themselves could be interesting though, as well as see him remember and how he would act being all alone (the angst!).

    P.D.: be aware that I don’t know about the “hidden” lore of mythology and that I may be missing details aaaand that I would love to discover them myself, so please no spoilerinos thank you :3

  • EmeraldLatias

    I answered the short answer sections straight regarding how I felt about XV / DLC / what I wanted to ask the dev team. My answer for the first of which was that the game was fun but the story needed fleshing out, characters were likable but I wanted to know more about them because the character arcs were shallow – non existent for the female characters especially.

    I might have been a tad snarky about the ‘ask the dev team’ with my answer of ‘you guys said that Lunafreya Nox Fleuret is a ‘strong female character’ in many press junkets so if you’re making fixes to the game experience can you add extra Luna scenes that support those comments?’ But whatever, justice for Luna.

    And to those saying, ‘it’s pointless – they’re not gonna listen’ you figure, even if they don’t, it only wastes about 10 mins of your time and at least allows for some venting. Is that really too steep a cost?

  • Artemis Polara

    Oh I know that. Still wanted to share it with them 😛

  • •december

    Go ahead!

  • storageheater

    I asked them to hop over to the World of Final Fantasy team and give them a dead leg for the battle speed

  • Abyss

    [Spoilers ahead] Of all the things that the story is in need of, more Luna and Noctis scenes are the ones it needs more desperately. And I’m not saying scenes with the two as grown-ups. I actually really like the ideia of you spending a long time just waiting to be reunited with Luna, only to see her die when you finally get to Altissia. The thing is you end up not caring much for Luna, because you barely see her doing anything and can’t see much of a connection with Noctis.

    If the game had more flashback scenes with Luna and Noctis interacting, maybe one would care a lot more about the two. More scenes with them just acting like children (maybe playing Justice Monster Five or going to Kenny’s Nest or something like that), instead of one or two scenes with Luna just explaining stuff to Noctis, would make us care. It’s like the bros. We care about them, because we spend time seeing them doing trivial shit like normal guys.

    The thing is, adding a lot of flashback cutscenes would be a little awkward to the story. So what I suggested in the survey was something like the Jecht spheres in FFX. Maybe, at the end of some dungeons or other places, there could be a photo spot and an option to call Umbra to send that picture to Luna with a comment that you could choose. In the next morning, Umbra would be back and give you a generic response from Luna. Everytime you did that you would unlock a cutscene from the past that could be viewed in the Archive. It would make sense since Umbra can already take you back to the past in the latter parts of the game. I think it would be nice…

  • Just find the cheat codes and test it directly on an emulator. It’s nothing new really.

    And please, do note that accessing those areas could give you the impression that SQEX trolled you because they didn’t complete the previous games on time, as those areas are fully working, with the same graphics and mechanics as the normal game.

    On a sidenote, I guess SQEX also didn’t finish KH, with all those areas that you can access via glitches in every one of their KH titles. lol

  • Chronodave

    I voted for my favorite game series being Chrono Trigger. That game needs another new entry in the series, and we have to let Square know we want another one.

  • •december

    I would hope so lol.

  • •december

    Hahaha. FFXV battle system works, maybe make the Limit break Magic Blaze/Flare/Electron animations more dramatic but besides that so awesome

  • DairyQueen_DQ

    This might be long lol.

    They should have left it to the versus 13 storyline at least. I don’t mind if they change the game play a bit.

    I heard rumors that the girl Stella was suppose to be an enemy but in the end she was a good person. Noctis became the enemy by mistake by killing Stella. Now that would be amazing for a storyline.

    What I like of versus 13:
    – The gameplay part of having 13 different weapons in versus 13 is what actually is more interesting. You can switch weapons freely without going to the menu. In 15 you can switch to 4 weapons anytime.

    – I love the fact that your weapons shields you from incoming bullets at you. That was so amazing.

    Part I was hoping to be in ff15:
    – I was kind of hoping to have an actual bow (not the crossbow), nunchuck, glaive, dual wielding short swords, staff. 13 different weapons.

    – For the summon part. Since you finish the game, why can’t you summon the knight and only nix can? I don’t get that part.I also don’t like the fact you can’t summon freely.

    – it needs more towns to visit and different buildings to enter like previous ff. If this happen they should change the title to “final fantasy the screen loading never ends” lol.

    – I know in versus 13 you can actually use enemy to robots to attack the other enemy’s. That wasn’t part of 15.

    What made ff15 game look short:
    The game felt short because of the movie and anime. Take that off and put it in the game. You’ll probably have an extra 20 – 30 hours of more fun and cutscene all together.

    Lot’s of people are saying that it took them 10 years to make this game, but it actually took like 3-4 years. I’m hoping that square would not the same mistake again.

    One of my friend said ” ever since squaresoft and Enix combined into square enix. Their games hasn’t been great at all.” I’m starting to believe that what he said is true.

  • DairyQueen_DQ

    Please write something positive about the game. Just don’t leave criticism about the game and say bye right after. Leave a message on how they should improve the next coming final fantasy generation titles (if they make one). They have work so hard on the game and we should all appreciate their work. This final fantasy game was made to be introduced to the western market so they can know if it will be successful.

  • xMysticx

    question : arent dlcs there to expand not to fix ?

  • Randy Marsh

    Do not touch the dark text!

    Huh, Ardyn DLC is a pretty nifty in concept. Considering some of the Jesus-like imagery from a lot of the unused artwork. Would be a nifty idea to see all that stuff actually used. Smart idea there buddy.

  • Invictus

    Man, I don’t know but I just put my whole heart writing some suggestions on how the game could be improved. Man.

  • Syul

    Glad you think it’s a good idea! Sadly, I don’t have much high hopes though about it coming true in the future, but who knows! ^^ Certainly it’s a shame that that imagery isn’t present somehow in the game…

    P.D.: … and I’ve just thought how great would be if, whenever you find a document (or get certain informations), you would be able to read it from the menu… I mean, the world is big enough so that if you ever want to read again a text, let’s put for example a Cosmogony volume, you either have to search for it, or get help from a guide or Internet. I think it would make sense (and would be easier) to be able to read them like that. Wish I would have thought of this before writing the survey, I would have included it somehow xDU

    P.D.2: how do you put the dark text? o.o

  • Some Random Guy

    Some parallel thinking going on here.
    My response was along the lines of “DLC expands upon whats already good”
    The FFXV DLC is tantamount to CoD doing a story DLC rather than giving people new maps and guns

  • Some Random Guy

    Well, im glad the Star Wars syndrome is fading. Hopefully the feedback does some good

  • Aulix Indragonz

    because SE trying to hide the fact that their game are half baked
    they’re trying to make the situation sound better than they actually are

  • Randy Marsh

    Spoiler tags:

    Just remove the quotation marks though and put your text in between them.

  • Vallen

    Just be polite and concise. They won’t read if you insult or write an essay. I asked for more story and cutscene DLC and questioned why so much advertised content from 2013 trailers onward got removed.

  • xMysticx

    ikr, alots lots lots of people liking it and demanding dlcs ….
    dlcs are made to expand on a good thing not to cover shit up and poor new comers loving the shit of broken game …

    the damage already done there is no way of hiding it
    this is why hate ffxv even more and disapprove of it as ff game

  • xMysticx

    SE thinks people love DlCs that way
    hell i miss the days that SE used to be good

  • Aulix Indragonz

    i personally don’t disapprove it as an FF game because at least it’s a good game, but it can be much better if it’s treated better
    so yeah screw SE for not taking it more seriously, they only used 3 years out of total 10 they left the fans waiting should be enough proof why the game is in such a mess they’re now

  • Casper

    Unite for what a Final Fantasy versus reboot? I mean I’d want that.

  • Casper

    https://www.change.org/p/square-enix-reboot-final-fantasy-versus This may not do any thing, but there is no harm in trying.

  • xMysticx

    well out of the 10 years vs13 was ready for ps3 but it got moved to ps4 and luminoius engine wasnt complete … so vs13 and 15 took up 10 years
    but, dont forget at the time all nomuras staff were doing toriyamas wifu lightning so he had to move from his dream gamme to kh3 ..

    since then tabata changed everything and put crap in ffxv that no one wanted (my opinion )

    so xv and vs13 took up 10 years together

  • Noctis

    Finally had a chance to tell them what I think of FFXV.

    And that I want Versus!

  • Aulix Indragonz

    it’s not tabata fault, he only joined the project in 2013, succeeding nomura who don’t get any progress at all even after 7 years
    he did what he can with all the little time he had, if anything it’s nomura’s fault for doing fuck all from 2006 to 2013
    no that is where you’re wrong the game wasn’t ready at all, except for character design the game doesn’t have anything, the plot got rewritten constantly and finally scrapped in the end
    that is why we got the crap we got today, it is because SE doesn’t treat the game well until 2013 when tabata was appointed

  • xMysticx

    is it really nomuras fault now ? i disagree with you
    his taff got taken for that bitch lightning games
    toriyamas waifu

  • Aulix Indragonz

    yeah it is nomura’s fault
    he was the director FOR 7 YEARS, even if he’s working on other game he could’ve got something out of it even if it was something little
    he didn’t, and left it to tabata, where people giving him shit for it even though tabata barely got time for developing the game
    it was ideal situation for him, other people get the blame for the mess he created

  • Noctis

    2013? Feels like you want Versus 😀

  • King Zeus

    And yet, you spend time posting here.

  • King Zeus

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAAAHAHAHAHAHA, oh boy.

  • •december

    star wars syndrome??

  • •december

    Did you not read it says Final Fantasy XV fans **
    It’s not aimed at you.

  • Noctis

    haha yes….much better

  • Noctis

    Tabata: The game is incomplete?

    (Speaking in his mind)

    /Damn how did they notice? I changed the script a thousand of times….and they still realized/

  • Syul

    Thank you!~ ^^

  • xMysticx

    well tabata no good either if you think that too

  • Javiz De Alba

    People talking on here like this was the shittiest game ever, as if THEY could do better. Honestly people, if you guys could top this game, by all means, go create something amazing, but if you can’t, then stop criticizing. Yes, Versus XIII looked awesome blah blah blah, but the game story would have been split in 3 parts, just like Lightning’s story which honestly…. well, it was terrible. They were then tasked into making just one game instead of 3, which is why they scrapped and rewrote so much of the story, and honestly guys, putting aside it’s defects, the game is amazing. Let’s support it instead of hating on it.

    I don’t think it’s fair to say “if you can’t create a good game then don’t criticize”. As consumers, its part of our right to criticize, as well as praise. Criticism is different from hating on something for no reason, and criticism IS supporting it. A lot of folks here will criticize the game because they love it, or can see they could have loved it if it wasn’t for X, Y and Z. I think it’s least helpful to ignore or put aside defects and just say “the game is amazing” as that just gives the message that we’re looking at a perfect game with no flaws, which I think we can agree FFXV was not that, and in fact its very rare a game comes along which is.

  • Ryuke

    Hmm it definitely felt like this was more of a corporate Square Enix with a publisher hat on survey, rather than Square Enix and the FFXV dev team survey. Mostly about purchasing habits and what we think of DLC and season passes in general over feedback from FFXV directly. More of a “how can we get more money out of these people” than a “how can we improve FFXV”. I guess it’s to be expected, they are a business first and foremost.
    Well, I completed the survey so I’m sure it will go off to an intern to collate the information and pass it to the higher ups, where it will be mostly ignored and his/her spread sheet of collated responses gets used as a coaster for a few months until the cleaner finally throws it out for being coated in coffee rings.

    at least he’s better than nomura considering he got some of the stuff done
    and no he’s not to blame for SE only willing to give him 3 years of development time

  • xMysticx

    to you and its your own opinion
    i have no respect for tabata whatsoever. and see he noticed the majority if not all upset so he wants to do new ip well thats i see as good news

  • Whether you loved or hated it… I think that we all need more than 2 sentences to describe how we feel about FFXV. Just saying. 🙂

  • You know… where everyone complains about how bad the new game/movie/whatever is and longs for the good old days of whatever they enjoyed in their youth.

    For example… people will say that FFXV is terrible while still maintaining that FFVII was the greatest Final Fantasy game ever made. 😉

  • Bagfullofair

    I want alternate ending!!! Y’know, like if you play it in certain way, you’ll get a better ending or something…I mean, I’ve played like crazy, lvl 40 in chapter 3 and stuff, doin all the side quest and stuff, I mean I’m obsessed with the game. But after I know how it ends, I lose hope man!!

    I need more clarity for the ending, like the aftermath of the world and stuff, sooo pleasseee…I really need that disney ending…Like, most ff series don’t really have happy ending anyway like how tidus dies in ffx, aerith dies in ff7 n stuff, so please, at least once, give us this alternate ending. You can keep the current ending so those who are already happy with it can still enjoy that ending…

    So plis SE gods out there, hear may prayer, thanks…

  • Aulix Indragonz

    well i can say the same to you, your opinion isn’t a fact either
    doesn’t matter if you respect him or not, i personally don’t care, but blaming him for nomura own incompetence is wrong
    considering tabata achieved more than what nomura did in 3 years(nomura had 7)

  • xMysticx

    do i care either same to you your opinion
    but know this if it werent for nomura you wouldnt of known ff15 (ffvs13)

  • Eyoi

    What kind of fucking retarded statement is that? So if you’re not able to make whatever you’re judging then you aren’t allowed to have an opinion on it unless it’s positive? You do know that constructive criticism is a thing right? It’s amazing how you can just say “putting aside its defects, the game is amazing” as if your opinion is the only valid opinion of the game. I’m pretty sure there are many extremely valid reasons as to why someone could hate this game as well as people who love the game. I’d say people aren’t just going to sit there and let square put their dick down your throat while you’re blinded by the franchise name but obviously I would be wrong.

  • xMysticx

    which is true ? xv is just fanservice
    tabata wants you to be happy hence he puts crap in it to service ffxv fandom

  • Bagfullofair

    I’ve filled the survey, hope they read it…

  • Sothe Zephyr

    How about: Acknowledge you goofed (cause they did), throw your arms up after the DLC episodes, and move on to another project SE. That would be nice.

  • NoctLightCloud

    What what what? KH too? Riku, I am supposed to go to bed now, but you keep on giving me such awesome pieces of information in your replies that I just MUST google them right now. Can’t wait until tomorrow… :’D

  • NoctLightCloud

    The things you’ve mentioned sound great and I would’ve loved to see them as well, especially the Stella-relationship and more explorable buildings, not just outdoor^^”
    Square Enix luckily still have a lot of great staff who know what they’re doing, like all their componists who are geniuses. Ever since the merger of Square Soft and Enix, they’ve produced a lot of awesome games too, which I enjoyed very much, including my favourite game KH2. Last year, the GotY for me was World of Final Fantasy. Excellent! And another 10/10-masterpiece is Dragon Quest Builders. I literally can’t stop playing it, I’ve been addicted to it for the last 7 days. I’m playing until 5am sometimes. I’ve never been addicted to a game to that extent, not even to FF14 ARR, which is amazing (everyone who’s played it will know).
    So I still have a lot of faith in SE and they’re still my favourite game company besides Gamefreak. Tabata has had a few questionable choices, yes, but I’m glad that 1.) it wasn’t cancelled altogether and 2.) that FF is doing so great these days financial-wise. I’d love to see Versus13 come to life though, just like you^^

  • NoctLightCloud

    Ah ok 🙂 In video games it doesn’t really matter since they are fictional stories/worlds anyways. Lot of peeps still get butthurt though if you don’t like what they do :”)

    (Fun fact: I would’ve never come to like FFX if I hadn’t given it a 2nd chance. I used to not like it. But now it’s my all-time favourite game besides Kingdom Hearts 2. #truestory)

  • Yeah, sure. lol

  • RoyalR R.M

    End of the day, We all want Versus. LOL

  • Valor Drive

    True. I would have liked to see what how the story in versus was like because I wasn’t impressed with the story in 15

  • fawkery

    That’s exactly what I wrote in the survey. Forget the moogle carnival, we want XVersus

  • fawkery

    I’m encouraging everyone to say they want versus and I put the XVersus spin on it

  • Richard Steele

    Umbra doesn’t “take you back in time”. Don’t get mad because you clearly don’t understand the story lol….

  • •december

    oh, thats lame lol

  • snowey1402

    i hope they can make an alternate ending or something i want them to make a ffxv-2

  • Velvet

    But Versus was purposely expanded to 3 games. FF13 was supposed to be just a single game, but after all the bad feedback they got, and unused material they had, they decided to just retcon the ending of 13, and make 2 more games. You can’t judge Versus and 13’s two stories, it was different circumstances.

  • you make that comparison as if the two are somehow the same

  • Artemis Polara

    Okay fine, you can go into your memories of the past. Even though doing so shouldn’t have any real effect on your abilities and items in the present then. But of course it’s magic and thus that accounts for it. Regardless I know Ifrit was the source of the daemons and all that. My asking for him to be summonable in spite of the story isn’t much of an issue. I’d like more summons overall and given the game’s lore only allows 6 (And carbuncle for easy mode), I’d like to get all of them in some form or another.
