I saw XV gameplay and was disappointed enough to not buy it after more than 7 years of waiting it turned out worst than expected.I dont have much photos to supply with my comment, but what about Final Fantasy XV? There is so much to the Final Fantasy games, but XV the first one I actually paid attention too. I watched a lot of the guy called Final Fantasy Peasant, and he's made so much analysis on FFXV, despite the story being... sorry, crap there is a lot of symbolism that the guy talked about that gets drowned out because we are too busy playing the side quests.
Especially with Chaos magic, the original FFXV originally FF versus 13 was going to very dark.
It's full of magic and elemental magic as probably every FF game. I don't remember any blatant symbolism, they're quite constant throughout series with borrowing the same names of monsters and gods from religions like leviathan, behemoth or shiva. So unique it hurts. (But in case of XV it could be because it was originally part of XIII, so names of monsters stayed the same? Who knows.)
But I played through FFXIII and FFXIII lightning returns (LR) and noticed some interesting stuff. Lightning is one of iconic FF characters, developers wanted to create female counterpart of Cloud from FFVII. Lightning as a symbol can be associated with satan, it was used for example on nazi uniforms as well as in KISS band name. In LR main background theme is checked pattern (masonic, good vs evil, duality), in game it represents chaos that swallowed almost whole their world. Lightning is in LR called the savior, she saves souls by granting them wishes, some people worship her, a heretic group wants to kill her and regularly kill women who looks like her (pink hair), whole game has a timer - countdown to the end of the world, 13 days. At the end Lightning and her friends fight the god of the universe, and after they defeat him, she leads all souls to the new world, new earth that looks like our world. A lot of Biblical similarities, but very twisted.
Official ingame song for Lightning, the savior of the souls. In game a guy sitting near cathedral sings it and plays it on guitar.
♪To the scarlet streak of light
To the one that breaks the silence
You illuminate the night
In most awe-inspiring ways
Sent up from high above
A name like a precious poem
Let me sing this song to you
Gracious savior of our souls♪
Lightning leading her friends and other souls to the new world. Just a few moments after she said there is no place for god there.
The impression I'm getting from this is luciferian, masonic or similar agenda, and paying homage to satan.
