13 is better mainly because 12 was such a disappointing drop from 10.
I see it went over everyone's head...
- 10 is the best, or close to best, FF. - 12 came after 10, so it was extra disappointing because 10 was/is so good. - 13 came after the disappointing 12, so people's standards had already been dropped.
That said, both games were disappointing in different ways.
Dresdenfall is amazing, if you know what I mean :) /wink wink Mada status: arguing with a fat moogle.
Some people will think it's a spin-off (well it is) and ignore it. However, if it was named FFXIII-3 people might ignore it anyway since it's another FFXIII game. Either way the only people will buy it are FFXIII, Lightning, and new fans.
It still has FFXIII in the title, but now it sounds like a spin-off. People associate spin-offs with lower quality games.
They aren't exactly missing the target with that association.
