Ever since its release on November 29th, Final Fantasy XV has earned generally favorable reviews from the usual suspects, including IGN, Gamespot (8/10) and Metacritic (83%). Between the genuine camaraderie of its main characters and limitless quests from its expansive open world, it’s no surprise that another Final Fantasy game has quickly risen to popularity. But what really sets Final Fantasy XV apart from previous releases is its freakish obsession with cooking and eating.
Throughout the game, characters talk about eating (“I could really go for some soup,” stated while climbing a mountain) and pick up recipes from strangers passing by (“That’s going to be a party in my mouth,” referencing the newly acquired Mother and Child Rice Bowl recipe). There’s even a character whose special skill is cooking because, let’s be honest with ourselves, that’s a real mighty skill (Ignis Scientia).
Most importantly, Final Fantasy XV has the most epic, realistic looking food of any game I’ve ever seen. And it has a LOT of it–your character can cook up to 103 recipes in total to be exact. Early screenshots of its toast broke the internet and everyday new recipe images are being posted online.
