Why I think people hate final fantasy 13

#1mega_flare_77Posted 1/18/2013 1:02:57 PM
Final Fantasy 13 was a great game, but many fans of the series were disappointed.
Why?
Because it wasn't a very good Final Fantasy game.

If I compare with Final fantasy X

Final Fantasy X
- it had a compelling story about sacrifice
- it had 34 locations
- it had about 45 characters
- it had a variety of minigames

Final Fantasy XIII
- it had a story about self interest at first and then a save the world story but with no meaning.
- it had about 18 locations
- it had 20 characters
- it had 1 or 2 minigames

I do feel that Final Fantasy XIII in some ways just doesn't feel like Final fantasy.
Despite saying all this is was a good game, it was just different.

What do you think? Why do you think people hate Final fantasy xiii

...I hate how people ignore the obvious problem with their own arguments.

"I do feel that Final Fantasy XIII in some ways just doesn't feel like Final fantasy.

For a game with the Final Fantasy name, and a game that IS a main entry, it SHOULD be a Final fantasy game in feel.

The fact it isn't, means the game is BAD. It had to strive to be a FF game, and it failed at doing so.

I hate FFXIII because lack of freedom & feels forced 70% of the game. Going thru 9 full chapters before finally get to pick my characters and play as them out of 13 chapters wiith no replay value.

NI No Kuni shows why XIII gets so much hate, it suffered from the COD syndrome, its missing what made FF in the past.

And it has less content compared to X and not being able to go back other then pulse and even that was limited and no airship at all.

Nautlis park could have been a mini game spot a lot of potential but was sadly missed due to SE incompetence with the game.

Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.

that plus a pretty dumb story and some annoying characters.

S-E keeps using ONE guy (besides Toriyama) to write most of their stories. Watanabe. Since like FFX
