    Default Do you think this game will live up to the hype[llo]

    It's been a long time coming, with many years for us to build excitement and expectations. We've had XIII come out to the disappointment of a lot of fans, and I know a lot of people were seeing Versus XIII as the game that would restore their faith in Square. After delays and several years of silence, there have been a lot of disappointments as well, I think.

    So, do you think this game will live up to the expectations that have been building over the years? For those who have played the demo, is any confidence in this game that may have been lost in the delays returned? Ride ze shoopuf?

    There should be Hypellos in every game.

    Anyways, the demo has me tentatively enthusiastic about the game. I think it'll live up to my expectations.

    From what I've seen of people's opinions, I agree.

    I hope there's still copies of the Collector's Edition of Type-0 available when I get a PS4 so that I can actually play the demo

    I am not as hyped for this game as I have been in the past. I use to get all jittery and excited seeing FFX commercials on the TV. With XI and XII there wasn't a whole lot of excitement, but when I started watching the XIII trailer I got excited again. It let me down. I am not going to get excited for something that will probably not live up to my excitement.

    Depends on how much hype it ends up getting. If it's a lot, probably not. If it's a reasonable amount, the hopefully it will, yeah.

    That's actually not a collector's edition thing, just a "first batch" thing.

    I've gotta say that seeing the Ramuh summon has definitely sealed the deal for me too! Summons were always my fave part of the PSX era games (long ass animations and all). And heck, we even have the original victory fanfare back (damn you XIII trilogy for stealing this away from us). It's the little touches that are making this game feel more like a good old FF again.

    As long as it's the best Final Fantasy since X I'd say it's lived up to the hype.

    After playing the demo I definitely think it's on track to do that. So yep!

    Well yeah, because they won't be printing additional batches of the Collector's Edition.

    Based on everything I've seen so far, do I think it will be good? Yes! I think it will be fantastic.

    But will it live up to the hype? No. No freaking way. The expectations people have built up for this game over the last nine years are insane and impossible to live up to.

    If it does, it will be the greatest game ever made.
    I like Kung-Fu.

    This is the first I've heard of the victory theme being in XV, so I'm really glad about that!

    Does anything ever live up to any hype? Hype is bad.
