    What expectations? I think most people will be satisfied if it's actually released at this point. 9 years of mostly nothing and following the worst single player FF's ever made keeps expectations extremely low to be honest.

    It looks freaking awesome. But from what I've seen it looks like it'll take a long time to kill the Behemoth Hp-wise, even with Noct (SPOILER)using what appears to be his limit break, and I hear there's also (SPOILER)a summon in the demo (Ramuh?) too?!

    And by the way if you don't have Type-0 you can get the FFXV demo with gamesharing!

    You haven't been on many gaming boards where this game was discussed in the last four years or so, I see.
    I like Kung-Fu.

    The combat definitely needs some tuning. The graphical engine also has huge FPS drops and choppiness in places.

    My main worry is that the final product will be a Watch_Dogs level of quality drop, because right now it honestly feels like they're trying to do more than what the current gen consoles can handle.

    Plus I can see the loading time when dieing and going back to a checkpoint, becoming hugely frustrating if they are that long in the final game.

    I'm cautiously hopeful, but right now there seems to be pitfalls all around that the game could fall into.

    The demo alone was a masterpiece imo.

    I can't imagine what will happen when the full game is released, I might explode.

    I just thought of something.

    Final Fantasy XV was announced in 2006, it's now 2015. The original Final Fantasy was released in 1987. That means this game has been in development for one third of the time the entire Final Fantasy franchise has existed.

    It'd better be good after that!

    I agree with Shauna, Vivi, and Aulayna. Honestly, I'm surprised there's any hype regarding this game at all considering how impatient gamers can be when something gets delayed for just a year, let alone waiting for it for what has almost been a full decade since its announcement. If there are people who honestly think the last nine years has led up to making the game the best it can be when there didn't seem to be any headway made on it until Tabata took over, they're just setting themselves up to be disappointed.

    This just in: Final Fantasy XV has been stalled again! New release date set to the 10 year anniversary of its announcement.

    Nah, they'd wait until the 30th year anniversary of the franchise.

    Not sure it's physically possible to live up to the hype. There's just been too much waiting. At this point, the game could be the best of any in the series, and people will still nitpick and groan about every little issue. The internet just loves to be miserable and make everyone else as well.

    I never heard of this game until this forum appeared. I'd hope it lives up to that hype
