Generally speaking, traditionally there hasn’t been an iota of cynicism in Final Fantasy.

The series is too storied to be attached to this rubbish.

The stats are so good because the developer, MZ (formally Machine Zone) has perfected the art of free-to-play, pay-to-win milking.

The cycle is simple: the game gives you a lot to do up front free of charge and hits you with a request to drop it a five star review early on. That’s when you’re asked to fork over money, and it works, creating a great balance between good reviews (A New Empire currently sits at 13,000 five-star reviews and 7500 one-star reviews on Google Play) and revenue.

Even when the series got it wrong, there was a sense of quality, polish and vision around everything it did.

FF was never without heart – something so few outside Nintendo have ever nailed consistently.

Speaking of Nintendo: Fire Emblem Heroes features the same ‘random chance’ gacha design that’s meant to entice players to open their wallets as many free-to-play games, but it feels fair and respectful even as you progress.

Further, it feels true to that series and its identity – and it still made a truck load of money.FF15 director Hajime Tabata talked a lot about restoring FF to ‘challenger’ status; about making the series feel like a bold risk-taker again.I feel FF15 succeeded in this despite its imperfections, but the existence of something like this, a partnership that boasts some of the most awful, manipulative pay-to-win design going, makes me worry they’ve forgotten the other defining aspect of Final Fantasy: quality.The game does all this while throwing a constant stream of banner ads in your face.The fact the gameplay is different from the FF norm is fine, by the way. Characters talk to you with a generic tone completely disconnected from their personality from the game, the film, the anime and beyond.I don’t really care about how much money Game of War made: at a point a business surely has to look at what makes their brand special and decide where to draw the line.
