You want FFXVI to be a niche title?

I somehow doubt that would go over too well with most people.

Ff is going the opposite direction - increasingly casual. They have to claw back the immense cost of making realistic hair physics.

I think SE misunderstand what made VII so successful. Its sales were mental due to the huge success of the PS1, a massive marketing budget, as well as the game itself being very good (story, characters, battle system, soundtrack). The graphics were not the main reason for its success, so I dont know why they are chasing the graphics unicorn now. It pushes them towards the casual market.

I heard sekiro is very good, anyone got any thoughts? Im on the fence about buying it, Im not sure I can be bothered spending five hours trying to beat the final boss then break down crying at the credits :/

Dont talk about things you clearly know nothing about, graphics was a very important component for FFVII's great success -_-

Yeah no. No matter how good Sekiro is, there's absolutely no reason for FF to go anywhere near that direction. You want a From Software game? Play a From Software game. Not Square cheaply imitating it (likely in a clumsy manner) and making a game that completely alienates a good chunk of the FF fan base. Even more so than the last few games.

Though if it was a spinoff, seeing them tackle something similar to the Soulsborne style with a FF twist could be neat.

Also I assure you, shadows die way more than twice in Sekiro. >_>

It was a factor, but there were loads of factors. It being a very good rpg is one of them. Everyone in the world buying a PS1 was one. Or are you being sarcastic?

Make a good rpg and they will come, to quote that guy in that film.

You can't say graphics are not the main reason for FF7's success, it's not the only reason, but it's certainly a major factor. FF had always been on the forefront on pushing graphics, every game they released was praised for their graphics, it might not matter to you, but it matters to a lot of people and reviewers.

And it's not like Square Enix stopped making old school JRPGs, they opened Tokyo Game Factory, they still have Dragon Quest, they released World of Final Fantasy and even Dimensions.
In the future the question won't be "what is punk rock", it won't even be "what is music", it'll be "what is listening".
