Lost in Translation: Final Fantasy X-2 - geimaku

"Crazy, indeed! But this is not all FFX-2 has got up its sleeve. What happens when you put a lot of extra content in a game that is designed around side-quests?

That thing about Vegnagun and the whole Shuyin / Lenne romance? I’ve got better stuff to talk about!" (Dev, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, Final Fantasy X-2, Industry, PS Vita, PS3)

That's all well and good, but I'm more interested in this aspect of it.

I'm also pissed that Toriyama changed FFX-2 from what it was supposed to be (a prequel with Braska, Auron, and Jecht) to FF Charlie's Angels because he felt the prequel was too traditional. People were begging for that prequel Toriyama. Just another example of SE not listening.

And yet i'd rather play FFX-2 than FFXIII, 2, and 3.

As would I. FFX-2 may not have been what I (or anyone) wanted, but it's infinitely better than the entire Lightning Saga including the not yet released, yet riddled with bad design choices, Lightning Returns.

They're equally bad, imo. X-2 was the first FF I haven't finished. Too girly for my taste. XIII-2, on the other hand, was the first one I've downright ignored. I can't wait to go back to X, though.

Just lets you know how far SE has fallen when we'd rather play a 10 year old mediocre game than the lighting saga. Its also telling that we wish thay can get back to at least that quality.

And don't forget that we'd rather play the HD remake than a brand new game as well.

Ever notice how quite a few HD remakes or re-releases coincide with the release or announcement of another game in the series? Maybe that's in the works at SE. Wishful thinking probably, but would be cool to get a prequel as the stories were really good in X.

A prequel to FFX would be a day one buy for me unless it had the terrible battle system of FFXIII or was in any way a completely linear experience in the FFX world. Toriyama was an idiot to not bring that game out.

lmao you guys are seriously funny! i lol'd at every comment. Like it is pathetic us fans would play 10+ year old games than the new ones, the characters downright suc, Lightning? really. She is horrible Sadly 13-2 was better than 13 SMH! LOL But on topic, i actually loved 10-2 we got to see the aftermath ya know the dress spears was pretty neat, combat was classic, :-)
