This isn't meant to be a bash topic, I get that the XIII series has its fans, I'm just not one of them.

Anyways, when the first trailers were shown I thought the style of the world and the characters was just the greatest. I was so excited for the release of the game, but it ended up being one of my least favorite FFs, unfortunately! Still, even if I disliked the game, the visual direction for XIII was really great, IMO.

Was anybody else like this?

Yeah. Of course, the actual gameplay looked NOTHING like that. So there you go.

It's one of my favorites but it's behind 9 and Tactics, but slightly above 12. I loved the played the crap outta 13, though I still think it was the reason my first ps3 YLOD on me.

I liked the 2006 trailer. Too bad we didn't get what we were shown.
I have always hoped for a BERSERK Final Fantasy Game to be made realized.

Original trailer did not get me interested honestly
I'll eat a sock if VersusXIII is actually a mind blowing game.

No, yeah, that's totally cool, but you guys are missing what I'm asking-- what your anticipations were when the game was first shown.

The trailer showed so much promise, I thought 'Final Fantasy is back!' Then we got what we got...and we are STILL getting it...still...

I didn't think it'd be my favorite, but I figured it'd at least be in my top 5.
