How come final fantasy xv and kh3 are taking forever?

Imo it's the development process they use. Final Fantasy XIII (believe it or not) had a 5 year long development cycle. Pretty much an eternity for a video game.

not really unbelievable, the graphics and animations must have cost a fortune, if only they spent the same amount of money on level design and a decent writer

I'd like to think the story drafts where Lightning was more flirty, and the plot ended with her dying, and Fang being a man were probably interesting but for whatever reason devs decided to scrap it kind of late into the project and hence the half baked plot.

because theyre gonna get trashed even more than this game


I don't know about KH3, but I've already heard *****ing about FFXV and how it shouldn't be a main numbered FF because it's straying even farther than previous FFs with it's action-oriented combat system.

Yeah, I expect that game to get just as much hate as as the XIII saga games. Honestly, that part of the fanbase who are clamoring for the familiar should just quit with the series while they're at it. SE won't go back to the SNES/PSX era type of FF games any time soon.

When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Too much sanity may be madness and maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.

For part of the stuff I mentioned. It's gonna be really hard for me to dig up other parts. IIRC I'm pretty sure Snow was originally suppose to be Lightning's romantic interest as well.

I don't know about the dying part, but Fang was originally a man, but she was redesigned into a woman, and lightning's more flirty, playful traits(what you see in fang now) that was originally intended for her were transferred to fang in lieu of a more serious main character. Before this point, Vanille was still meant to be the main character.
