I said 13 but really I think it's a toss up between 13 and LR... 13 had the better story but LR has absolutely amazing gameplay.

Melodramatic Fantasy 13


Not sure if you haven't actually played any other FF games or just don't know what melodrama is. Either way, the XIII games as a whole have among the least amount of melodrama of any entry in the series.

Back on topic, LR >>> XIII-2 >>>>> XIII.

Hm. Jury's still out but I might just prefer XIII-2 overall. Will have to play a bunch more of this.

I'm probably misusing melodrama. Maybe...oversentimental fantasy 13? cheesy fantasy 13? Cookie-cutter characters 13? Either way whatever I'm going for it only applies to the original. !3-2 and LR were much better in this respect so between them I'm not sure which i like better but I consider them to be both better than 13. Only things I liked better about 13 were that there were more relevant characters, more content, and the story was more coherent becuase there was no abstract time-travel stuff

I would say FFXIII-2 overall. I had the most fun with that game.

Hard to say.
I voted for LR but each one had its strong points.
FFXIII has the best Lightning. XIII-2 has the worst Lightning. LR has a Lightning in-between the two, not as bad as XIII-2 but not as good as XIII.
LR has the best gameplay. I liked very much the gameplay of XIII, and actually if it wasn't a hallway simulation for the first 25 hours of the game, I might consider saying that I liked XIII's gameplay as much as LR's. XIII-2 has the advantage of not being a hallway simulator and it's a real game right off the bat unlike XIII, but the enemies are too weak and I don't like that they took out the Techniques of XIII and gave us instead that silly "Feral Link". LR has EP abilities that are pretty much a revamp of XIII's Techniques and that's another good thing about LR.
If anything, about XIII-2 I liked the characters and the somehwat tragic story ("liked" ina broad sense).
So I would say:
LR > XIII > XIII-2.

Can't speak for LR yet, personally, but...

Storwise, I'd say XIII is better than XIII-2.
Gameplay-wise, I think XIII-2 is better than XIII.

Is it fun to fight weaklings?
XIII-2's enemies are a joke.
