Things That Frustrated You

Inspired by the above question! With the caveat that we be respectful, let's vent about things that frustrated us in-game.

Mine are big spoilers so please beware if you're not done with the game!!

I really did not like what happened to Luna. I did expect her to kind of lessen in importance as the story went on, but not for her to die. I guess I'm really tired of women being used to further the story of a male character (as much as I adore Noctis)! She had a lot of potential as a character. Especially after the development she'd been given in the movie.

I also don't like the way the reveal about Prompto's past went over. The boys' reaction was sweet but not really satisfying, if that makes sense. I think a bit more build up and more of a reaction from the bros would have worked better.

Also this is really nit-picky but sometimes when prompts show up, I press the button and Noctis jumps instead. I'm always like, "We get it, prince! You're happy to complete your mission! Now let's actually get on with it!!"

What about you guys?

I really don't like the way Luna's "story" played out either. And then after the train mission + dungeon etc, we get that random stop in Tenebrae (which I'd been hoping would be playable but whatever) and that random little girl shows up to tell Noctis that Luna was super excited about the wedding and hoping that Noctis would like her wedding dress, and I was like OMG IDC I WANNA FIND PROMPTO JFC

Later I read that the wedding dress thing was supposed to be product placement or something which made the while slightly more funny.

Yeah, Luna's treatment really bothered me; even though I ended up adoring the game, its treatment of women on the whole was pretty bad. There's a lot you can do with the gentle, self-sacrificing healer character--see Yuna in FFX--but she needed more to do on-screen, and they needed to really build on her and show her flaws as well as her kindness. This is why the in-game romance really didn't work for me, even though I think Noct/Luna has plenty of potential--they had an idealized childhood romance, and never had the chance to grow past that and show how they actually interact as adults. And the tragic missed opportunity of their relationship would have worked fine, if there were other female character who were more than plot devices who were given the same attention as the main male characters. As it is, it's clear that Luna was written as just a footnote to Noct's story, and she could have been much more.

def agree. as much as i was frustrated by luna's situation, (as someone who hasn't watched the movie) i felt like she wasn't even developed enough for me to care about her relationship with noctis. and noctis seems very hesitant about their engagement so the scene with him and luna on the throne just kind of landed like a dead weight for me. i remember thinking "well if ya'll had just give her a chance i'd be sad right now but i'm just kinda bitter"??

i still loved the game. it just kind of surprised and shocked me because usually ff does a better job with its female characters. still not the best but better than this!

Luna getting fridged is my #1 beef with this game. And then the weird flashbacks you see later with no context and no idea what's happening or when they're supposed to have happened.

I felt confused a LOT while playing this game, haha. Prompto's past as Cloud 2.0 came out of nowhere and was so bizarre that I kind of threw my hands up in the air and laughed incredulously throughout that scene.

The weird afterlife wedding between two characters who, as far as I was concerned, were just friends was really off-putting. That kiss between Noctis and Lunafreya was terrible. Compare it to Yuna/Tidus, Garnet/Zidane, Rinoa/Squall, or even the chemistry between Cloud and Aerith. Noctis and Luna are long-distance friends. He thinks of himself like a child next to her! I saw no evidence of romantic love, Square Enix! lol

Oh, and, I thought it was really terrible they this game had friendly fire. I wanna blow shit up with magic, not hear Prompto s c r e a m i n g because he's on fire, okay?

"He thinks of himself like a child next to her!"

I HATED that scene where she says good bye to him because they aged her up to her 24 year old self, but left Noct 12. It looked more like Noct's mother was dying than his romantic interest.

I kind of liked it. I agree that it perhaps unintentionally hammered home the non-romantic feelings between them, so it was definitely a weird choice since they obviously planned to have them in a romantic relationship by the end of the game, but as far as giving a clear view of how unsure and afraid Noctis feels, and how immature he feels next to Luna, it was pretty good.

I didn't like what happened to Luna either. I wanted to care, but I didn't care when she died. I didn't believe her and Noct were in love. I wish they had just made them platonic and marrying each other for the good of the people or whatever.

I hate the reveal about Prompto's past too. I wish they had built it up sooner.

Nit-picky, Episode Duscae seemed to have better graphics than the full game. The characters looked like they had more of a range of emotions.
