There's lots of hype right now — partially because the game looks great, but also because folks hadn't seen new footage in a long while. The Final Fantasy fandom was hungry for this.
That's not to say people won't make fun of the game a bit, especially when it comes to the road-trip aspect of the game, or the design of the characters. And the extended development time is definitely a thing people like to joke about too — I mean, it's been in development since 2006. But the jokes are still all in good fun!
Here's what the internet has to say about the new Final Fantasy trailer:
UPDATE: Chris has made the most important GIF/reference to the new trailer:

The Final Fantasy XV trailer was pretty cool, but did not feel very Final Fantasyish.

Final Fantasy: once about grand adventure, now about handsome dudes who dress way better than me going on road trips in expensive cars.

Final Fantasy XV is the Simpsons episode 'Bart on the Road' but in JRPG form. I'm okay with that.
