I honestly hope LR serves as a wake up call to FF fans and to SE

Have you ever thought that there may be no problem, and it's just a matter of upset nostalgia critics who are stuck in the past? FF fans are at their worst, and there's no reason for it - but don't worry, this is the last game. XIII has a good fanbase, and so does every other title. FFXV is going to have a strong fanbase too, and a lot of people hating. It's a vicious cycle. There's nothing me or you can do about it because people will still continue to buy because they like RPGs in general. At times, people are looking for entertainment and not to delve into critical detail about every little thing that's wrong.

If you do want to fix things, get a degree in writing from a renowned college, start writing stories, become an Indie dev, network with people, and maybe you will get seen by someone who wants to change the RPG world.


Yeah, those scores sure are no problem. Neither are the dwindling sales by each game


Yeah and DmC recieved rave reviews when it came out. Whos fooling who?

Never said they were. It's a fact the sales are worse, but expected given the situation. All things considering, the sales have been decent in Japan. It's either hit or miss these days.

Do you hold SE stock or something?
If the game sold well, it's "a bunch of sheep buying a Final Fantasy title".
If it sells poorly, it's "bad games sell poorly".

If a game is rated highly, it's "paid off reviews"
If a game is rated poorly, it's "just a bad game"

If you don't like these games, that's fine, but learn to develop your own opinion, as opposed to trying to claim statistics as game quality.

Nope. Considering what happened with the VII Compilation years ago which was worse, nothing will change much.

When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Too much sanity may be madness and maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.

My own opinion is in alignment with the majority. There's a REASON the statistics are where they're at

FF7 - 8.9
ff13 - 7.0 - Majority rules

Anybody remember the GameTrailers FF12 review and all the backlash? Or all the fan hate in general? Yeah, this is nothing new for Final Fantasy.

All that anyone has shown Square-Enix is that they need to follow Activision's lead and focus on formulaic games that don't take any risks, because apparently that's what people want and that's what will sell/earn them money. They'll have to save the experimentation for spin-offs, sequels, and new IPs.

Personally, I've loved their recent games. The FF13 games were far from traditional RPGs but were a blast to play and have become some of my favorite games.

If FF fans could have what they want, they would want the same thing over and over and over and over.

(totally expects FFXHD to sell several million copies)

I hope they completely ignore all bad press and continue making games as great as the Lightning Saga, easily the best trilogy in gaming.

While LR certainly isn't the best game ever, people really need to stop acting like it's the spawn of Satan.

99% chance we won't see another XIII game, so calm down.
