Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV is an open-world action-RPG, and the fifteenth main installment in the Final Fantasy series which began on the NES in 1987. Players in a party of four travel together across the world of Eos either on foot, by car, or riding the chocobo birds, while battling randomly encountered enemies and bosses. Fighting uses a real-time, action-based battle system where the main character can select among four weapons or magic, attack while also dodging or warping, while issuing selective commands to teammates.
On the Earth-like world of Eos, Noctis, the crown prince, is sent on a journey with his three friends to the city of Altissia, where he is to marry the princess Lunafrey. However, along the way, the Niflheim Empire attacks Noctis' homeland and kills his father, King Regis. Noctis and his friends must find a way to rescue the princess and bring peace back to his homeland.
Final Fantasy XV received fairly positive reviews, with an average score of 83%, praised for its graphics, presentation, and detail, though criticized by some for its simplistic combat system and, at times, linear scenarios.
Compared with some of the previous Final Fantasy titles, Final Fantasy XV doesn't require a whole lot of grinding, nor are there any missable trophies. Simply play through the game, complete it, then enter free roam to mop-up anything you missed. While some battles may require a bit more skill than in previous titles due to the change in style, it's nothing any average gamer can't handle.
Expect roughly 55-65 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.
For the most part, there are no missable trophies to worry about. The only trophy you should be concerned about is the Chosen King, for which you'll need to defeat Ifrit on Normal difficulty mode in Chapter 14. If you are playing on Easy, just make sure to switch to Normal before Ifrit's HP reaches 20%. However, if you're playing the game on Normal mode anyway, than you have nothing to worry about.
For the Weaving A Tapestry trophy, you'll need to complete a total of 80 sidequests. However, there are roughly 120 side quests in the game, which means you aren't required to do all of them. Yet, as any seasoned RPG player will know, it's always a good idea to work on these as they become available in order to boost your stats. This also includes doing Hunts, which are great for getting Gil.
You'll also want to work towards reaching the maximum levels of fishing, survival, photography, and cooking, during the course of your gameplay. This is done by simply catching lots of fish at the fishing spots, traveling on foot for survival, resting each evening for photography, and camping for the cooking level. Boosting each of the four skills to their maximum of Level 10 will unlock each of their respective trophies.
Once you complete the main story, you'll enter Free Roam, where you can mop-up any trophies you may be missing. This will also unlock a few extra quests, as well.
