It's incredible reading other people's comments. I'm happy I wasn't the only moved to tears by the cutscene.

It did bring me back emotions from the older days.

Yeah, I will admit I was pretty damn choked up as well, and equally impressed and amazed by it. 

Seeing all of the last couple years, all those characters and such, all culminate in that final battle/ending really kind of puts it all in a very different perspective for me now.

Easily on par with the introduction to FFXI, which I've held as a "standard" for any other MMO's cut-scenes/intros, ec.

Classic Square-Enix story-telling.

 

I think this may finally get some more people's attention on this game.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I disagree, it says a  lot about the game. Do you know how many people just cried because of this CS and their emotional connection to the charicters in the game like Louisoux?

 

No other MMO has been able to do this except FFXI. When Blizz killed of Cairne and that Dwarf in their crappy WoW book all people did was whine and get pissed at Blizz, when SE killed off Louisoux people litterly cried tears of sadness and happiness for his great death.

 

I meant in terms of gameplay and whatnot.

I am not dismissing the excellence of the trailer, or the game even ... I am just saying that if I didn't know more about the title then I do I would not base my decision to buy or not on this (as I wouldn't any CG game movie).

I too almost started to cry watching everyone's despair as Bahamut destroyed everything. Simply amazing. I'm still unsure about ARR, but, damm, this trailer made me want to play the game like nothing i could think off.

Like always, i'll still wait for reviews first, but man, great job SE.

I loved that video!  Having been in Alpha and Beta, I've been on the fence as to whether I want to try the re-release but boy this video was motivating to give it a go again.

Man why don't they make whole movies like that. This fight was so much better than the whole Advent Children imo.

The event was horrible, but it is EXACTLY or as close as what happen in the video.

 

The crashes of both side ..except the lag was bad and not as many enemies people were searching for them!!!

 

then end of server.... end EPIC video...i cried..after following the game story and everything until now..

 

if you ask me... was FFXIV 1.0 worth it? I have to say it was...everything till the last bit of the trailer. 

Of course, 99% of the people have no idea who is who in the trailer ...

none

Definitely glad I've played up to this ending and am awaiting the release of ARR with much anticipation.

 

OnionThief's post pretty much fills you in on everything thats happened over the last year or so. Well said.

Well there's already a few gameplay videos of 2.0 combat right now (I believe one is a trailer), and the alpha / beta about to come out so there will be tons of gameplay videos of everything on YouTube, and around 6 months until the player esimated relaunch. But this is the end of 1.0 cutscene (and possibly opening to ARR) shown to finish the current storyline of the game. So it's more for the players of 1.0 than anything else.

 

And anyway, why could you want to see MMO combat in a trailer? It's not the kind of thing that draws people to a game.

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one.

We will always remember your sacrifice, Louisoux!

I don't know about other "games lately" but Bahamut specfically has been a staple character in the Final Fantasy franchise dating back to the very first FF if I'm not mistaken. It has always been one of the most powerful beings in certain installments.

In XIV Bahamut seems to be one of the Primals. "Primals are powerful denziens that exist in another plane. They require a vast amount of energy in order to trancend into our world."

I found it very fitting Bahamut was used as a sort of God of destruction in XIV.

I know there are others like OnionThief in here who are buffs in FF lore, so please correct anything I may have said.

Something very cool occurred to me after reading a remark about it on the official forums.

At the end of the final trailer, we see Louisoix smile just as he's consumed in Dalamud's flames.  It's easy enough to guess why he's smiling - he just sent a number of people away, saving them from destruction.

But there's actually a deeper meaning to it, that's rather personal to him, and it's provided in the last cut-scene for the "Living On A Prayer" Mission, which comes after defeating Nael Van Darnus (The White Raven).

At the end of that mission, Louisoix is speaking to you and confides,

"If I can but see you to a new future, I should want for nothing more."

At the end of the trailer, he sees his wish granted. And so he smiles.

Although you don't see *your* character in that movie, the adventurers (the Warrior, White Mage, Bard, etc) you see in the action throughout it - and all other movies going all the way back to FFXIV's original opening cut-scene, for that matter - are meant to represent all Adventurers (players) collectively. They are "us", basically.

 

It's easy to dismiss FFXIV for all its glaring issues and problems over the past couple years. In terms of storyline and powerful cut-scenes, it's classic Square-Enix through and through.

I would suggest you watch the cut-scenes from that mission. If you don't play the game, didn't get to complete that mission or, perhaps, did but didn't 'follow all the dialog, do read it this time, through both videos. It's long-ish, but it reveals a lot, and gives a good sense of the weight of the situation, and provides some beautiful foreshadowing of things to come.

What if the 12 gods they were praying to weren't gods at all, but visitations from extra terrestrials as many ancient alien theorists contend?

Joking aside, I'm totally stoked about the game even more than I previously was. This and the test trailer for the other FF trying out the PS4 graphics are simply epic. All other games are just filler for the downtime.

I was a little frustrated when 40 min before the event I got booted from the server I was on, but found some live stream. It seems SE had many server failures and connection issues for the event. BUT when I got to watch the video I was like ........ O M G ! Definately one of the best game videos I have seen in years! See you all in the future :P

So watching a video with no gameplay content makes you want to play it?  Thats called hype.  And you should never buy or play a game on hype alone, you will only be dissapointed.
