This. We really don’t need a boyband road trip to a semi open world with a s***ty action combat system and tons of fetch quests. I’ll take “stale” over garbage like the FF series has been.
Obviously this is my personal opinion, but the combat in XV is 1,000 times better than in P5. This game is about as basic as can be. At least that game had some creative ideas and the combat felt way more intuitive. I also think the FF open world, while definitely sparse, was far superior to the unbelievably limited and linear approach of P5.
I don't like innovation for innovation's sake, and FFXV was definitely a shell of the game it should have been, but it was at least something fun and different.
The social school sim has been done, repeatedly, by this same franchise. It is beyond stale at this point.
I'm actually a bit shocked at how overwhelmingly positive the consensus is for this game. I think it's enjoyable, but nowhere even CLOSE to the "game of the year" hype it got from pretty much everyone I talked to about it. It does virtually nothing new, and even what it does well is recycled.
And holy crap is it slow to get going. Basically 10 hours of tutorial and exposition to get through the first 2 weeks of the story. Ugh.

15s combat was TERRIBLE and BORING!!! All you have to do to win is hold dodge until you see an opening to attack!! And as long as you had healing items you were effectively invincible!!!!! Lame famalam!!!! Lame!!!!!
