FFXV will not sell well in the West

Never thought the a game would be judged by character appearances. If you are not buying this game because of the the trolley TC said then GOOD, one less moron out of the picture.

Remember when people thought KH wouldn't sell?


Kingdom Hearts had Disney characters in it, most people at that time had bought it because of that. Movies from their childhood. and cartoon were in a game.
FFXV is nothing like that.

If you haven't noticed but the game's protagonist and party is basically a jpop band and there's only a single woman in the game. The game is a sausage basically and no average joe would want to buy it.


*ehem*

1. We saw effectively 5% or less of the entire game. Your argument of 'not having girls' is invalid based on that fact. Also known as the 'Never Trust a Trailer' Clause.

2. Final Fantasy, for all of its beautiful art, which is unorthodox by Western standards (all FF artists, no exception), sells impressively well in the West. We have two decades of VGChartz data to support that claim.

3. If a game being 'sausage' (sic) is a problem that no 'average joe' would buy it, then games like Modern Warfare, God of War, Battlefield, Killzone, Infamous and similar top-selling AAA games would have been unable to sell at least one copy based on that argument.

Based on the evidence above, I hereby move to claim your post as invalid, and sentence you to replying to my commentary in an agitated manner.

Isn't FF still the biggest selling JRPG in the west? I don't think that's going to changing anytime soon.

Gamefaqs has taught us that academic fields like literature don't exist because of teenagers that say "well that's just your opinion and I disagree."
