Is Lightning Well Liked/Iconic
The majority is getting bored of her.
When i fall in the water, i dont get wet. Water gets me.
You made some really great posts about Lightning's character, things I sort of knew but I didn't want to let her get away with not showing all these feelings because of it, and it made me realize what I think would have made XIII's story great... all this talk about how destroying it is to the individual to become a l'cie, we as the player don't really understand because the game throws us into this situation without really knowing just how serious it is from the start.
Perhaps if they gave more time to elaborate on the whole fal'cie/l'cie business before the cast of XIII became l'cie we could understand the devastation of it and like the story more. It wouldn't fix the issue of linearity and monotony in terms of gameplay but that would've made the story much more likable.
The original concept of the Fabula Nova Crystallis was to have 3 separate games in this world, Final Fantasy XIII, XIII Agito (later Type-0), and Versus XIII. If they first released XIII as something that established the setting, the fal'cie, the l'cie, Pulse vs Cocoon... if we started off knowing these things and their consequences, there could've been a major difference in the way we look at the first half of the game in a story perspective.
I think this is something that Final Fantasy X did right. They establish the church of Yevon and Spira's views on technology and the Al Bhed before the cast becomes a fugitive, so the stress they go through is easier to comprehend and to sympathize with.

DemonPathRevya posted...This is rather a long winded topic TC XD. Lightning being a good written character or bad written character is always subjective. In my honest opinion she isn't better than the protagonists before her, but she isn't completely flat either so hatred for her should be reasonable and backed up with facts. I am in no way a Lightning fan or hater btw, just stating what I believe to be fact. I think her response to most situations are pretty silly and her sour attitude is hardly specified. Her back story doesn't makes her interesting and her goals aren't clear cut enough to be interesting either, in my opinion. Her appearance is okay though and unlike Tidus in FFX, I think she does kind of fit in her own world (leave it to Nomura to give characters a bunch of unnecessary belts and zippers though) Her biggest flaw, again in my opinion, is the fact that she is considered to be a solider for the front lines while wearing a skirt and hot pants I find to be a little unbelievable. Her development is her BIGGEST flaw in my opinion! Her growth was basicly a copy and paste of Ashe's from Final Fantasy XII, the only difference is I think Ashe's was done 100 times better.
This is the best post/most logical and well thought out post ive read in this site
1.) You're the one "reposting" the idea and yes YOU don't understand the character of Lightning.
2.) "Read"- looking at words and applying meaning to them... Yes I can read.
3.) I never said that. Can't you read?
4.) Yea, but have you seen the other characters?
5.) Hahaha what?
6.) My username have nothing to do with anything. I made it up like in 2004 for a browser game.
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!
