I keep seeing it on discount and have learnt there is some Royal edition (Base game with all DLC) a friend recommended it to me as its more of a hack and slash than the turn based (I don't like turn games) like Devil May Cry, but I've looked at reviews and they all scream it's great but would rather know from someone that has played it...

Only FF game I played was I think X but never finished as the turn based dynamic drove me to distraction, do you need to have played the others to understand the character/plot.

No, you don't need to play any other FF games since each FF game stands on its own.  They are separate stories/worlds/characters etc. 

I just "finished" playing FF XV and I think its a good game.  The first like 60% of the game is free world.  You get to choose what quests to do or to do sidequests etc.  The last 30% is pretty much linear storyline and you are forced to pretty much complete the game.

The game has a lot of replay value after you finish the storyline.  There are end game dungeons and other quests you can only do after you beat the storyline.

I think if you don't like FF X's turn based system, you might like FFXV since its more hack and slash style.

The storyline itself is kinda meh.  If you want to get more out of the story, you need watch the film and other media to get the full story.  They are also making more DLC this year.

You don't need prior knowledge of the franchise to enjoy the game. Just give it a go: SquareEnix is a good company that knows what it's doing.

Gladiolus FTW. And yes it's more of a Hack'n Slash than a classic turn based FF game.

The combat takes a little getting used to, but it's a great story all around. I think there's a demo on console (if that's where you are) if you're skeptical. Plus the four guys give off such a homoerotic vibe the entire time, if you're into that.
