“The Worst Photographer in Video Game History”




Rage Mage right  Rage Mage Reviews!

Ladies and gentlemen, NPCs of all ages: Prompto Argentum.

He’s a slack-jawed, prepubescent, Green Day drop out punk rock floozy with hair like a chocobo’s butt and a self-described eye for photography. It is merely self-described, in his high-pitched Chuck E. Cheese voice. He also has the least useful skill out of the four-member boy band of Final Fantasy XV. While you’ve got mama Ignis who can cook, Gladio who can… well heck even Noctis can fish. And then there’s Prompto. He takes photographs.

I’m sure that will come in handy when trying to save the world.


Not only is he less useful than an arthritic hairstylist, but he’s a bad photographer on top of that. Or perhaps it takes real talent to immortalize these awkward scenes. Bear witness to the worst photographer in video game history! Can you think of someone worse? Maybe the kid from Pokémon Snap?



Real mature. Maybe you could help beat this monster instead of filming its butthole?



Where will you be when diarrhea strikes?



This is why he dies in every freaking battle.

Do you even snap, bro?

  2. I actually really liked Prompto but I suspected that male gamers would like him less. I also played with Japanese voices and I’m sure that helped. I didn’t like Gladio as I felt his tough love was more him just being an unsympathetic jerk, but I also figured guys would like him better as well. Funny how it works out 😅.

    • Hm hm hmm interesting. I don’t know about gender profiling since I know several guys personally who liked Prompto as their favorite character. There was a guy who commented here already that said he liked Prompto as well. I also thought Gladio was pretty unsympathetic, considering Noct’s double loss. Ignis was my favorite but I’d like to think that’s for good reasons and preferences, not because my gender demands what I like or not. I also hated Cindy, because she was far too objectified, though I’d guess most guys would love her as she’s eye candy.

      • True, I also have a guy friend who thought he was overall funny so was okay with him. I mostly appreciated the emotional support he provides to the team overall. Ignis was my favorite as well for many reasons 😊. I’ve also come to tolerate sexualized women in games as long as they’re capable and not a sex object to the guys in game–in this case a knowledgeable car mechanic who just so happens to like the way she is dressed…

      • Ha, ha, ha! Oh the salt! It’s extra funny to me because Cindy is almost my wife to a T! She was born in Oklahoma and had the exact same accent. Her father (my father in law) is a mechanic and she knows more about cars than I do. Hell, she even had the same body a few years ago when she was doing personal training! What you call ‘stereotype’ I call ‘dear’. As an added bonus, when my father in law had a beard he looks almost EXACTLY like Cid, just taller and not quite as old.

        • Sounds like we’ve been blessed with incredible wives! But I’m sure your wife didn’t fix cars in booty dukes and bikini top, plastic cleavage on full, constant display… At least that sounds weird to me, dressing like an oversexualized playboy model roleplaying a mechanic while fixing cars. We can’t help our accents of course, so nothing wrong with that lol

  3. Those pictures aren’t actually as bad as Prompto gets. I have level 10 “Promptography” and constantly get photos of grass. And not artsy pictures. He just decided to take pictures of the ground, because… Prompto.

  4. I JUST started playing this past weekend and I have gotten some pretty good shots out of Prompto, but no, not all of them great. I actually have a few I saved and am going to put into a post on my own blog, but haven’t copied them from my sons PS4 yet.

    C’mon, some of those are comedy gold!

  5. Lol, I actually really love Prompto and the photographs in FFXV are one of my favourite elements of the game 🙂 Its an expression of the idea that four friends chronicle their journey together and bond, growing closer. And obviously… it results in some hilarious shots XD
