After playing through 13, I thought that she had some good character development, and was a decent character overall. As opposed to some of the people in 12 (like Penelo), she had a personality.

Unless you meant Hope. If you meant that whiney-ass kid, then yes, he's terrible.

Slow down, buddy! Just because people can read it doesn't mean it isn't crap!

One of the least memorable characters in FF history. Shes about as badass as a ham sandwich.

Confirm.

She's just so soulless. She is the text book example of "cold hearted person who eventually warms up to friends" character with nothing to distinguish her from the other thousand characters that fit that description. SE just saw that people liked Cloud and Squall (and possibly Lenneth) and tried to replicate their success without picking up on the aspects of the earlier characters that made them stand out (Cloud's severe mental issues and the sheer intimacy we have with Squalls inner monologue). Adding to all that is she's just all so irritating in that first half of XIII

Which wouldn't be so bad if SE wasn't so convinced that they made the best thing since sliced bread

Deny. I don't think she's the best character ever, but she's far from bad. I think that my least favourite character in the entire Final Fantasy series would be Squall. I found him to be absolutely terrible.

I should quit? All because I didn't fall for his poorly written sidequest?


You should quit because you have terrible taste in video games.

This doesn't make her "soulless." You can call her unoriginal, but it's disingenuous to do so without looking for what makes her different from other examples of the same trope. Neither Squall or Cloud, or any character, is impervious to the popular tactic of a GameFAQs critic to sum something up in a sentence and say, "look how shallow it is because I did that."

Also, that last sentence is an obvious fallacy in judging a character, and undermines your criticism. It says, "I'm angered that Square Enix likes this character, so I'm going to be extra harsh."
