What was the best 13 series entry overall?

I would've said XIII-2 if we played lightning and not Serah I never cared for a second about that character and now she becomes the main character of the game? no thank you... that and the fact that you couldn't really get 6 ATB segments (well you could but the best weapon didn,t have the +1 ATB segment you needed unlike FFXIII) and the fact that they removed Haste... they left slow, but removed haste, what the hell? Haste is a mandatory buff in XIII, yet is inexistent in XIII-2 the only means of getting it is either pre-emptive strike, auto-haste from equipment (both of wich seems to last for 10 sec) and some monsters feral link wich means it can't be spammed...

buffs in general felt clunky in XIII-2 I often had my SYN finished buffing me right before the first buff died where in XIII you could spend some time in a buffing paradigm then be okay for a good amount of time.

a third character is also always better then a monster, but the monster thing worked quite well and had depth and customization to it so it's not necessarily a bad thing. however I do miss the epicness of the summons, the ultimate moves (XIII-2s are a joke considering you can only use them once per fight) and the diversity of characters (especially Fang, GOD Fang was awesome) but everything else beside story was best in XIII-2, better endgame content, the world was not a think straight line, the puzzles were a nice touch etc, and Mog/Noel/Caius/Yeul were awesome.

LR has a stupid story right now (finished Luxerion and Yusnaa ATM) but it's lightning, amazing battle system, music and the customization level is through the roof, but it lacks a ''je ne sais quoi'' the whole thing seems clunky, and I hate that they removed the crystarium. also a plus in LR, Serah is dead... (god that character was awful)

I agree with almost everything you said, but why so much hate for Serah?
Me too, when I found out that lightning wasn't the MC I was a little disappointed, but soon enough I ended up liking Serah just as much as Lightning. In FFXIII she deosn't get a chance to shine, while in XIII-2 she really shows that she is Lightning's sister while also retaining her overall personality.
Also, fighting with a transforming moogle makes her look like some magical girl. Ain't she adorable?
Last but not least, how can you hate these?
