First FF: VII.
Favorite FF: Tie between XIII and XIII-2
Opinion on the series: Legendary
Opinion on SE: They know how to make amazing games, but they also know how to make terrible games.


Really?


Yes.

I know how to take off my nostalgia goggles.


Is that the best thing the defense force can come up with, when the games have lots of legitimate flaws?


I rate my games based off how much I liked them. XIII's battle system is leagues better than any other game in the series, IMO. That's what made the game for me.


I love the battle system in XIII as well (though they could have had leader switching and gambits for AI party members to make it better), but the game definitely has lots of legitimate flaws. XIII-2 has even more (much, much more IMO).

Oh, I do so love these topics!

My first FF was VIII.
My favourite FF is a tie between IV and IX. I've tried for years to decide which I like better, I still can't choose.
My opinion on XIII and it's ilk is...not good. I've played through XIII and part of XIII-2 and I can safely say they're two of the most boring games I've ever forced myself to play. If you like them though, hey, more power to you.

What do I think of Square-Enix though? Eh. They're pretty good. They're still steadily rereleasing the best FF games, and outside of development, they're publishing some real gems. I never though I'd see Square publish a Deus Ex game, I can say that much- but I'm so glad they did.

IMO, VII has more flaws than XIII or XIII-2.

They're all subjective. If I list them out all you will do is tell me why they aren't flaws and that's alright, because it's just your opinion. I don't feel like starting a fan war here.

I'm not that crazy for VII, but I just can't see how it would me more flawed than XIII was. That game has some serious holes to be filled.

Several actions that end most disk 1 and disk 2 battles in a single move(even discounting grinding). These all render the vast majority of materia redundant or underpowered.

The only flaws I saw in XIII are a weak leveling up system and not realizing how to effectively use the battle system till like that Ark.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

I knew how to effectively use the Battle system when fighting Aster Protoflorian in like chapter 3.
