After all the hype and disappointment, three years later is FF XIII any good?

Both XIII and XIII-2 are pretty cheap now, I'm thinking about getting into them. I know there was a lot of hype before it was released and ended up being a big disappointment, but is it really all that bad?

They are horrible examples of RPGs period, and probably among the worst FF titles.

But if you are a die-hard FF fan, you might as well bite.

My answer: Yes. XIII is very flawed, but it's a good game, it's memorable, it's polished. XIII-2 is not worth playing.

No, the games are really not bad at all. The first is just slow because it takes until the very last chapter (or so) of the game before you can do any missions, and it's straight story up until that point.
The second game though is great in all aspects.

They are both great, play them both. They are both definitely worth the prices they are at now.

The first one's pretty bad, XIII-2's okay, I guess. They're not the worst in the series, by any means, since the series has games like Mystic Quest and Tactics Advance.

They're JRPGs, the illegitimate cousins of real games. Be careful, you might catch something.

Ff13 was dull but it wasn't THAT bad. Worth less than $10.
