I didn't like Mass Effect so I didn't buy ME2. (XIII series related)

It seems like that's the biggest mistake people make around here.

I see numerous topics along the line of...

"I hated XIII, it was the worst game in the series. I bought XIII-2 and it was more of the same crap."

This is not the same type of deal as hating XII and buying XIII to give it a chance. The story and game play are different. They only share the Final Fantasy in the title.

Hating XIII and buying XIII-2 is far different. It is a direct sequel, same characters, same setting basically, and all that jazz.

I don't see how people could make this mistake.

Me thinks my intelligence level is higher than most people's around here.

ME2 is a hell of a lot different than ME1, there are lots of people who dislike 2 but like 1.

Same with XIII and XIII-2.

I really think its because SE has very loyal fans,people joke about the people who complain about the games and buy them anyway when I think its sad. It's like they have these fans who are so loyal that they buy their games even if common sense tells them not too. It's like an abusive relationship.

Good sir you made a wise decision if you didn't enjoy XIII.

You get a cookie.

This is my last post of the day, I'm about to hit the hay. (Yes that rhymed)

Also the gameplay in XIII and XIII-2 are basically the same with a few minor tweaks. Why don't people just watch Youtube videos of games they aren't sure they will like?

I'm poor as dirt. I don't buy a game unless I have at least 96.4% confidence in liking it.

I Youtube the holy hell out of games I'm iffy on. If they look good then I'll buy it. If not I just saved $60 and I can afford toilet paper for the month to wipe my poor butt with. Yes, I only buy the 1-ply.

What do you think it means when a girl leaves a fake mustache at your house?

They just like to complain. They aren't hurting anyone, and you can always ignore them if they are too obnoxious for your tastes. I've learned to coexist with the haters. o.o I've been living among them for days now.

How I feel about the games, though I'm willing to give LR a chance.
Only for now, though.
