Final Fantasy XV - Omen

Final Fantasy XV took quite a few risks with the formula for its world and gameplay. But it's biggest gamble was the faith that people would have enough patience to follow its "Transmedia experience", in which the storyline is told over several different types of media.

For instance, those who managed to absorb at least the "Kingsglaive" movie beforehand, would have a much more coherent experience of the game's storyline than those who just played the game. Hardly a practice that can be described as good game design, but interesting as an experiment in creating pre-release hype.

The above video was one of these stories. A rather good one at that, and something that really should have been IN the game.
