Square Enix on what makes a Final Fantasy
While it's normal that most people will never embrace new generation-like things, such as the new FF's that came out. Check out any sort of board based on a long title series, or older entities in the market (Nintendo, PS...). Fans always complain with "they used to be this great now it's... or they just want your money. Take a look at the capcom boards, to the nintendo boards. It's the same complaints. "[Insert Game/company] used to be this good, now it's like they are too big to fail and just release for more money"....
My -hope- is that this post is a joke.
But rather than go point by point, on the off-chance that it isn't, I'll just mention that the project director said publicly that the production was a mess of miscommunication (which isn't hard to believe, considering farms look like sewers and research laboratories look like futuristic zoos) and that the project lacked any unified vision from 2005 until about 5 months before release and leave it at that. Suppose you could call him a "dumb kid" too, though, to preserve whatever it is you so desperately need to believe. And that rant about Bioware (whom I've already taken two shots at in this thread, so it's not like I'm a Bioware shipper) is really, really weird, by the way.
OH MY! THEY TRIED THEIR BEST!?
THEN WE MUST ACCEPT THEIR POLISHED TURD!
THEY TRIED THEIR BEST.
cry me a river.
i can spend years working hard on a painting and it be a terrible painting with colors that clash, composition that misdirects the eye, and lack of understanding of general design.
just because they tried their best, dosent mean the quality reflects their work.
this project lacked decent management and it shows.
its like they spent a year making concept art with no idea what the story will be, and when the time came to put it all together they didnt want to waste anything or bother making new concepts to fit the story.
the ff13 games had been very convoluted direction on all fronts.
jaganshi2 posted...It IS funny, because my main gripes with the FFXIII series have nothing to do with the gameplay. The gameplay's passable(though, like everything, it could be better and allow more control). The characters, IMO, were pretty derpy, and I didn't really find myself invested in them much like I was in past FFs. Though, to be fair, I could say the same for FFVIII(I probably felt the exact same for those characters as I did for FFXIII's).YukitoRambo posted...snip</quote
