Why is the character design in the XIII series so... odd?

Not that the previous games didn't have some questionable designs, but pretty much everyone in the XIII universe looks weird.

Where do they get their clothes?

FFXV should be more like FFXII.

The real question is why the names suck. A huge step down from XII.

This is true.
FFXII has XIII beat in character design and names.

X clearly had the worst character design. I love the game to pieces, but it is unacceptable for designs like Seymour Guado (the huge indescribable hair and the terribad outfit) or Shelinda to have gotten past production.

And the dialogue.
A lot of things said in FFXIII barely make any sense.

Yeah, just what is Vanille wearing?

Or not wearing? :T

The hottest girl alive..? That goes to Miss Hanzhou. I could watch that woman strut her stuff all day long. She is the epitome of very sexy.

Every FF form VII has weird dressing and names styles, but that's hardly a problem anyway.

You know how some offices have soda and snack machines?
Square-Enix have cocaine machines.

Aside from IX/X which has some odd designs, the others are fairly normal.
