I think I know the reason why Lightning is hated... (spoilers I guess)

It's because she didn't have a tragic enough back story as Cloud !

Apparently dead/missing parents isn't enough, you gotta kill off her best friend.

You gotta also give her a stalking enemy that borderline's on gay.

I actually don't know

I dislike her mainly for what she has come to represent as SE's mascot. Greed, incompetence, and unoriginality.

Her character in the games so -so to okay, but she has been around too long and has come to be the symbol of this dark age of Final Fantasy.

If Lightning is so hated, and the XIII series is so horrible, why are people still talking about. I know if i absolutely hate something as badly as people claimthe hate Lightning/XIII Series, I would just ignore it, forget it exists, not spend large amounts of time on the internet complaining about how much I hate this certain something.

I like Lightning well enough (I don't think she's "like totally amazing" or anything but I like her ok), and I just don't think all the hate is warranted. Yes the story has gotten a tad bit convoluted, but is not " the worst story ever told in the history of the universe" like some would have you believe.

I just think if the story and it's lead character are as hated as it appears, message boards about the games, especially LR, would be deserted. Instead all I see is topics like "ze boobs jiggle", "lightning is a tramp", lightning has no integrity", "toriyama wants to bone light" (alright, that one might have some truth). That's just my two cents. Now let the fanboy branding begin.

Because there's this lingering doubt in the back of their minds. Clawing, gnawing, and driving them mad with the thought that they actually loved the game. So they crawl onto Gamefaqs, and plead with everyone how much they hate the game. It's the only way they can stay sane.

This kind of logic is not going to fly in the face in the multiple criticisms these games get. People are angry and upset for a reason, and they are not going to take it down lying. Folks are going to speak up and express their content, and in way these complaints and criticisms are cathartic and also help keep the discussions going,
