Why do people like FFX, and yet hate FFXIII?

ffx has amazing characters(wakka,yuna,lulu,auron), superior turn based combat, and cool story

ff13 only has graphics but everything else about it is horrendous especially the whiny kid

You release your game and it has disc locked content and day 1 dlc I will just buy your game used.

X has a more engaging story with a far better-realised world, and while all Final Fantasy games are to an extent linear, XIII takes it to a whole new extreme.

1. Every single character except Auron and Khimari, sort of is absolute worthless, poorly written trash.
2. X had a worse whiny kid by far. "Waaah, my dad never loved me, waaah, this is my story even though I don't contribute anything, I accomplish nothing and don't even belong in this time period/dimension/plane of existence, waaah, pay attention to me!"

If they won't sell it to you, it isn't piracy.

Their brains weren't fully developed when FFX was released.

And after it was released their brains never would be.

I honestly can't say much that hasn't already been said before. But yeah, damn near everything was done better. Story, characters, environment, OST, customization, having a variety of locales, NPCs, etc. And it did a MUCH better job of disguising its linearity. You could stop and play blitzball at any time, there were a few minigames, some areas you could actually explore, etc.

Yeah, I'm sure you are the gold standard of brain development with that sig.

Right.

Dear TC,
Many, many people complained about FFX's linearity when it was released.

Sincerely,

When I was younger and FFX was a new game, it was amazing. I could completely look past some of the more cringe VA work and costume designs in it because I was completely sucked in to this new installment in my then-beloved series. FFX felt like it delivered and left me satisfied.

FFXIII is a game I put down at chapter 8/9 and didn't pick up again for a good while. When I did, I went on to complete it and even do all the postgame grind (mind-numbing). I think in terms of presentation and combat mechanics, FFXIII is hard to fault. But in terms of how the story was handled, story progression, character VAs, character motivations and growth, it was terrible. Terrible as in ****ing atrocious. I only like two characters at most in the whole XIII saga. I still haven't finished FFXIII-2's story yet and while the game is more "open" and "content-filled" than the first installment, it is still somehow a more tedious and boring game.
