And that list is supposed to be belivable?
And FFX more wanted than Versus? Ok.......


Japan loves their re-releases it seems.


Yup, probably the fact that they already know what to aspect is something that is valued very well in Japan.
They know what to aspect from FFX (and the same is valid also for other games like MH4, SMTIV, Mario games.......), and since they loved the game they highly anticipate it.

LR instead is clearly trying something different so it's no wonder that the fans are not 100% sure about it.
.....not to mention that the fanbase is divided about the first two titles in Lightning's saga, so it's quite normal that there is even more uncertainty about it.


LR is the 3rd game in the FF13 series, we know what to expect. A mediocre RPG and a terrible FF

People didn't even want 13-2, why would they want 13-3 more than versus or FFX HD?


Because one of those is a re-release of a game everyone has already played?

A re-release of a game that almost everyone loves, though.

You say that as if the FF series is rarely above mediocre. LR will be business as usual, anime styled JRPG filled with the usual tropes. Heck with the amount of changes they say it'll bring it might actually be better than the average FF game from a gameplay standpoint.

That could be said for pretty much every JRPG.
And FF happens to do it better than most.

Final Fantasy is to the JRPG genre what Sword Art Online is to anime. Right down to the "the masses love it but it really isn't that good" part.

I haven't played many that were better.
Whenever someone recommends a JRPG that is totally better than FF I end up playing a game with average gameplay and a weak story and characters.
