How would you feel if Light became a series mascot?

SE are just that stupid. I can see it coming.

Lightning is not memorable at all, and is not a gaming icon.
All she is is the poster girl and sex-appeal of the XIII series.


Well, Cloud was the poster girl a few years back. o.o I guess he's passed the torch.


You've got a point lol

Not because SE thinks people wanted more of him.


Cloud had a huge number of haters too, if you recall. :u I guess that is just how these things work.

People wanted more of Cloud, that's why he's the mascot.
Lightnings just a Cloud-Clone that SE forces upon us.

You don't have to like him to see the difference.

Cloud had a huge number of fans (moreso than haters).

Lightning does not. Her fans are just weird and few in numbers to say the least.

Lightning is popular in Japan. :u And I don't think the hate for her is that bad here to be honest. I've only see a few very vocal haters. Most seem indifferent, or weirdly infatuated by her.


But I do remember Cloud getting hated on A LOT, along with FF VII in general. o.o People didn't like how much attention it was getting. Which is similar to the XIII situation now that I think of it...

"Weird" is a bit of an understatement.

That didn't come until a few years later though (and it was mostly because of people feeling jealous their game/character isn't as iconic or easily recognizable).

As for Lightning, there was a time when character arcs where finished in one game, and not ever a span of three games that I'd argue weren't even planned from the beginning.

That's the disgusting part. Not to mention, Toriyama having the nerve to call Lightning the first female protagonist.

I was neutral till now about Lightning and the game, and I even wanted to get it of course.
Now I'm just disgusted.

I would go with 'interesting'.
