You have to be more subtle than that, TC. I don't think any sane person will bite the bait.

Sorry it wasn't Grand Theft Auto enough for you.

^FF13 had great character development, actually: you might not like the characters (I still want to kill Hope), but I thought they were among the most fleshed out in the entire series. And if you want to call these characters out for being "emo" I advise playing some of the older ones (namely FF8) again; not a new thing for Final Fantasy.

Hell, the severe linearity isn't even entirely a new thing: FF10 wasn't as bad, but there was a lot of running in straight lines there, too. Not to excuse it (it was my main complaint about 10, as well), but it's not a new affront to the series, either.

The plot, yeah, that was mediocre even by the series standard. Still, though, this game does not compare that unfavorably to the earlier entries: it's not the series' worst game (FF2 is a mess, even in the remakes. If you want to stick with the modern ones, FF12).

Two people in this topic are apparently not sane and got baited hard.

"No. It just wasn't Final Fantasy enough for me. I remember when Final Fantasy games required exploration and had decent character development and story. Now it's:

We're L'cie (30 hours later) We're still L'cie (20 hours later) Let's kill this Orphan thing even though we weren't supposed to.

Game over."

You sir, have summed up the game perfectly.

Not that it'll mean anything to a troll like yourself, but one of the very first things that the designers confirmed about Final Fantasy XIII-2 was that it was going to be much more open-ended, with far more towns and NPCs, than FF13. Be a good little boy and do your homework next time.
