if i had said FF 13 outsold FF 9 and thus is "good" while FF9 is "bad" wonder what vekkerer and the rest here would have said?

as to why it sold less: whole different economic situation.


Why are you dragging me into that? I've never bothered to use sales=quality as an argument, I despise it.
If I cared, I probably would've called you a fool.

Well X-2 was good. I'd build a reasoning around that fact.


you don't have to lie. I'm sure you were joking when you said this, seeing as how you forgot about this post.

Because nobody knew direct FF sequels were **** until they'd all bought X-2.

I don't see how that first post had anything to do with sales=quality.
I said that X-2 was a good game, not that it's good because it sold a lot.

its a thread asking about why a game sold less than another. You say quality. that implies sales=quality. Its not rocket science

You can interpret it however you wish, it won't change the fact that that wasn't what I was saying.

It's one theory.
X-2 also didn't come from a game that split the fanbase and had a mixed reception. XIII-2, on the other hand, did.

As you said: it's not rocket science.

X-2 had the benefit of following X, where as XIII-2 was not so fortunate to come after a much more maligned XIII.
