In FFX, how does your conversation with Yunalesca in the Zanarkand Temple not count as a big reveal?
I don't think waiting until 95% of the game is completed to add a diolog that changes perspective is quality plot twists in a video game. In a movie, perhaps, but in a FF game you should have a 2nd half at least to enjoy the plots new direction. That's just my opinion. Not to say that FFX and beyond didn't have some cool reveals to further deepen their stories, I just felt those reveals were trying to make up for a basic bitch game.

Interesting article. I happen to agree with a lot of it.
15 hours in and I FINALLY reached the first town. Goddamn it the world was supposed to be interesting but 15 hours of exploration with only one town isn't what I'd call an interesting world. From what I heard there is only one more town in the game.
I'm still about 9 hours in and still on Chapter 1, and not once have I felt like I need to be anywhere in any particular hurry - nowhere does it seem the fate of Eos is in the balance and everything will go to hell if we don't hightail it to Altissa or wherever it is. Supposedly Noctis needs to go there to marry Luna but, I haven't felt any pressing need for that to take place in that the game itself is just too laid back in it's execution for it's own good - Noctis and his friends just come across as a bunch of college age kids out on a camping trip rather than usual FF protagonists.

Fantasy is dead, folks. Time to process through the denial.
