Yes and no. On one hand, the story isn't nearly as Deep and complex as it Think it is, but really rather laughably stupid. And on the other hand, you've got some big key plot Points hidden away in datalogs that no one reads or other illogical places. "Hey, you guys wanna know what happened at the end of XIII? Well, **** you, we'll release that information in a guide. That we won't translate into English, the language the majority of you speak, or even release it outside Japan lolol".
My excuse for 'not getting it' (If I ever need one) would simply be total apathy about the whole mythos at this Point. Just can't find an excuse to care.
