If he's such a Retrogamer, then why is it the only Final Fantasies he compares 13 to is FF7,8,9,10,10-2 , and 12?
Personally I dont think XIII is terrible, but since FF 7, the series is becoming more of an interactive movie than an RPG. Some people love watching 10 minute cutscenes and 3 minute summon animations. I don't. I still think Final Fantasy 6 is the best of the series.
Final Fantasy 13 is the only Final Fantasy I never beat. I was 50 hours in and I was just so bored of no exploration, no towns to interact with, Hope's whiny ass, and a cutscene after every other screen. I really wanted to like it.
Yes I liked the graphics, the voice overs were nice, except Hope, I absolutely hate everything about him. The battle system is interesting, not the best or the worst.
I'm also sick of all this future crap in every RPG coming out, Why can't we have more classic idea's like Airships, Dragons, etc. take a break from the sci-fi crap for a game.
I've enjoyed all the Final Fantasies but I did not enjoy 13 enough to bother finishing, maybe i'll give it a shot after I have nothing else to play

Why is linear treated like such a bad thing? Alot of great games are linear the whole way through until the end and I'm fine with that, I'm playing through illusion of Gaia right now and every minutes been enjoyable while being on a one way path with no backtracking allowed


This, 13 is all about the ride. If you didn't enjoy the ride then the game is clearly not for you. But don't simply bash it for being different. All FF games are different.

Oh gawd... I just wanted to see this topic and I get something made by you. Just gonna... you know. Leave.

Oh, my two cents in this... It was OKAY at best. Not the best of the series. Heck, I got bored watching the first few hours.

OK. You can no longer bash a puzzle game for not having any puzzles in it. It's clearly not a game for you. You cannot complain about a game of a certain genre leaving out the essential aspects of the genre. It's just being different.

I hope you enjoy your platformer that keeps you on the ground for the entire game.

Wow dude, please just stop talking. :P

You swear as if 13 removed all of the series staples; the fact is it didn't.

I bet you are one of these "TOWNSSDELK#$R#$#$#!!!" people, huh? hehehehehe

TC, nothing is going to change anyone's mind. I played FF13 for myself, wanting desperately to like it, but instead found it to be a festering pile.

I'm not the only one who came to the conclusion, and the game will always be popular in gamestop used bins.

There's a chasm between people who like the game and Retroxgamer0.
