Ask me... questions?
Has there been any controversy yet on how Final Fantasy XV (formerly Final Fantasy Versus XIII oh lord why do I know this) is basically about four hot boys going on a road trip? Or, you know, it’s basically a game aimed squarely and near exclusively at lady gamers? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve absolutely zero problem with that even if I won’t bother playing it (only because Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is the only upcoming game about dudes (and also ladies because MH is inclusive y’all) hitting monsters on the head with oversized weaponry) (also I don’t plan to own a next gen console) (also because I don’t dig the esthetic - not the hot boys, but the general mishmash of fantasy/scifi elements, which I think still fails to gel no matter how much Square insists on it. And to think French comics do it effortlessly), but one’d think the gamer community would find it, well, bothersome? Look at how the four boys flirt with each other and talk of hot baths! I bet they swap at least some tips about maintaining such amazing hair! Or at least I damn hope they do. The prince (?!) even has a girlfriend of sorts who has zero lines of dialog and appears for like three seconds in the trailer. She was probably (!?) been forced upon him as a royal broodmare, but he’d rather hang out and play with the boys. At least that’s how I’d write the scenario. Give me a job writing RPGs, Squenix.
It is basically Fabulous Hot Boy Road Trip: The Videogame and I approve.
Someone please point me to gamer fury, basically.
this is basically the most I have ever, and ever will, write about Final Fantasy
