Why do I have a feeling that Square Enix in terms of managements is a total dumpster fire?  Seriously, they can't seem to stay on schedule for any of their projects.

To some extent the problem is announcing things LONG before they are ready to be announced (e.g., if I recall correctly, the director for the FF7 Remake wasn't even aware he was directing it till after it was announced). The inability to get anything done in a reasonable time just compounds the problem. I feel like it might be that they have perfectionist directors that are obsessed with maxing out the graphics so high that it takes 3x as long to get anything done than if went with a slightly lower or more stylized graphics, but that is entirely speculation.

^ It's moronic and leads to delays, but because Squeenix is publicly traded and announcing AAA games drives up investment.  So there is incentive for them to get the word out on projects as soon as possible in order to bring in more cash.

Don't they still make their own engines for the AAA games? They seem to get out the unreal and unity stuff pretty quick.

I honestly enjoyed this game a great deal.

Because it's actually a really good game.

But yeah, it looked like Square was turning a corner for a while there, back in like 2015 around the time of FFVIIR announcement, but they've since just gone right back to being terrible again.  And Tabata quitting is the most damning evidence of all that the company is mismanaged.

If Square were a sports team, they'd need to fire all the coaches and start rebuilding.  Why the crap did they announce VIIR and make Nomura the director knowing he's directing HK3 and his inability to stick to a schedule?  Ridiculous.

I'm not trying to revive a massive debate... I'm just wondering what appealed to you both? I just hated the whole game from start to finish. I thought the open-world was boring, combat took too long (though, to be fair, I probably wasn't very good at it), the main characters weren't engaging and others were underutilised, the dialogue was cringey, and the story was just a head-scratching mess (but, hey, Tetsuya Nomura, so I'm not surprised). The graphics were good, so there's that, I guess.

Nomura's fingerprints have been pretty thoroughly scrubbed off the end product though. They pretty much gutted XIII Versus (to the point of effectively completely changing the female lead from whatsherface to Lunafreya) to make FFXV and there's plenty of other Tabata hallmarks to support this.

Don't ask me to name them though as I haven't played this game and I never will now that the last parts have become vaporware.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

i think a LOT of people overvalue this game because of MEN. some people just prefer to play male characters just like i prefer to play female ones. because of this i think they are willing to overlook the games flaws just like i do with FF13/LR
