Final Fantasy XV

(Before It's News)

The premier video game series for fans of Dungeons and
Dragons–
style gameplay, science fiction themes, and
impractically stylish protagonists is back with its latest
masterpiece: Final Fantasy XV.

What separates developer Square Enix’s games from other fantasy
canons is that practically nothing links one entry to another.
Final Fantasy IX takes place in a fictional medieval realm
with steampunk elements, while Final Fantasy X involves
completely different characters battling a religious cult in a
technologically advanced water world.

This time around, players take control of Noctis, a magically
gifted but melancholy prince who must save his father’s kingdom
from the surprise invasion of an evil empire. Noctis is accompanied
by his three best guy friends, who escort him around the world in a
black convertible. Sometimes they just cruise the countryside
eating hamburgers and talking about life. Other times they kill
monsters using goofily-named spells like Firaga and Blizzaga. (The
latter is, in fact, a mainstay of the series.)

This bro-tastic action distinguishes Final Fantasy XV
from the series’ previous entries, most of which included playable
characters who were female (and dressed like strippers).
Anti-GamerGate feminists such as Brianna Wu were predictably
outraged about the all-male cast, but might find much to like about
the game if they looked closer; the action centers around human
relationships instead of just brawling in bikinis. It’s just about
the opposite of toxic masculinity.
