Playing FF16 now. Even for Final Fantasy... there's a lot of plot early on. Game almost needs an ability to save during cutscenes if there's going to be this much.
Yeah, I was going to quit for the evening a couple plays ago and I thought I would just watch the cutscene for the next main mission.
I think it was like 12 minutes long!
I have to say I am really enjoying it... it's not perfect but the effort level in production seems incredible. I wasn't a FF guy at all until the FF7 re-do and wow, I am here for this type of AAA experience. On rails you say? Fine. It tells a story, rewards me for trying hard, and finally addresses the whole man challenging a god in combat in direct way (I did like FF7 reboot final level too) that might also be scripted but is also thrilling.
I am looking forward to getting back to the tactical combat of Rebirth but this works for me too. Definite Nier:A vibes and I'll take that any day.
I might only play 2-3 games per year on my PS5, but I'll be a day one PS5 Pro guy. I've only got so much time to game, and I'd like it to be turned as close to 11 as possible yet still be fluid.
