Please do not buy Final Fantasy 13-2.

#1ChickenhawkedPosted 1/15/2012 10:42:37 PM
By buying Final Fantasy 13-2, you are encouraging Square-Enix to continue making mediocre, poor-selling games that will eventually lead to the company's demise. I firmly believe that by boycotting Square-Enix games of low quality, we can force Square-Enix to develop and produce high quality games in the future.

I am making this request because I've already been able to convince several people not to buy the game. If you are not convinced, so be it; I am not here to personally debate with you, I'm just here to offer my insight and information.

My 13-2 demo review, which partly explains why the game should be avoided, is here:

My list of FF13's plot holes is here:

If you must experience the game, but you do not want to encourage Square-Enix to continue making low quality games, please consider these suggestions:

- Watch the game get streamed live on Justin or Livestream.
- Watch recordings of the game on YouTube.
- Rent the game.
- Buy the game used.
- Borrow the game from a friend.

Thank you for your time.

Before everyone piles on this guy and flames him for trolling, please remember:

He did not say your opinions were invalid. He did not say it is impossible for people (ie. YOU) to like the game as it is.

He simply feels that there has been a decline in the aspects that made the FF series great and wants others to realize that by purchasing a new copy, you are in essence 'voting with your dollars'.

I feel he has been rather polite about what he wants to say, so if you disagree with his sentiments, try not to flame, if only at my request.

Why? One man's trash is another man's treasure. Just because you didn't like it, doesn't mean everyone agrees with you. A lot of people happen to enjoy FFXIII, and XIII-2 demos despite what the majority of the players thought of it.

cool storeh broh!


But too late because I already paid in full for my Final Fantasy 13-2 collectors edition pre-order.


I'm sure a few others already paid in full for their pre-order FF13-2 too so you made this topic in vain.

Oh come on Static!

This guy is trying to be a "polite" troll hater and you trying to cast "BarFlame" on him?


This TC is really dubious in trashing FF13-2 with the polite farse.

This game has already sold 750,000 copies and will sell 1.5 million easy.

Good luck with that boycott idea. Perhaps you should write SE and share your feelings. This game will be a sales success despite your efforts on a message board.

I like it, I am going to buy it and I would be happy with similar offerings in the future.

At least you aren't being a narcissistic jackass like some people who post these kind of threads. However, I already decided to get the game. I already know what I'm getting into,and I'm looking forward to playing it.
