Really? I guess it's a lot more people that like Lightning than I initially thought. Personally I don't see the appeal.

Dengeki PlayStation Awards is from a Japanese magazine, they give out anything Japanese a good write up so this is no surprise, especially if it's a Final Fantasy character.

She is a bland, depressing boring b**** with no personality or backstory to her whats so ever.

Why would people want to give Motomu Toriyama a bloody ego boost.

Now your giving him an excuse to shove Lightning down our throats even more.

LAWSON72952d ago (Edited 952d ago )

Backstory if I am not mistaken is she was a soldier that followed orders until her sister became her "enemy". Not saying it is a good backstory but she does have one it is however an excuse to not have an interesting one. Now I question however we were never told about how she became that way so maybe you are partially correct.

EDIT: I just remembered her parents died and she had to look after Serah so maybe that was the influence. Because that was when she changed her name. She is clearly quite a struggling individual who changed her name and did everything she could to forget the past. She appears to have done the same thing when she lost Serah by putting on a tough act and doing what is required of her. She eventually breaks down and accepts emotions.

theyre choice ranged from a perpetually stoned plumber, a loli , pikmin and monster hunter guy

Magicite951d ago

She is not that bad and she got backstory too, here - http://finalfantasy.wikia.c...

Im a fan of the FFXIII Trilogy and even im like "mmmm can we talk about this guys?"

Snookies12952d ago (Edited 952d ago )

Same here, I mean I liked the XIII games, but they weren't amazing. Lightning certainly shouldn't be the best character of 2013 by any stretch of the imagination.

I adore Japanese culture, games, and animation... When it comes to gaming though, they seem to be losing it lately. :\

vishmarx952d ago

i like the 13 games but there isnt a single character that i think is good.
noel was i think, okay?!
caius was decent too.fang wasnt half bad but the rest of the cst was cringe worthy lightning is just a brick with boobs

Kenshin_BATT0USAI951d ago

IMO the issue was the story didn't explain lore. Hence you have to read entries, Which isn't good game design IMO.

badz149952d ago

Oh Japan. COME ON!

Lightning? Best Character? Over Joel? Ellie? it's 1 thing to be proud of your own country's product but to blinded by it is something else! Lightning is a 2 dimensional character that is beyond generic at this point and the only reason people even remember her at all is because SE shoved 3 games about her and nothing else!

elda951d ago

But the FACT remains that is your opinion Japan thinks otherwise.

kayoss951d ago

It's seems that for lightning returns, they try to make her less emo.

this need context,this magazine is a otaku driven,so is not hard to see a ligthning win for being good waifu material,also if you see the list. ---------------------decent waifu
2.hatsune miku -------------- the best waifu ever
3.monokuma danganrropa--------great character drag on dragoon 3------badass girl
5-neptune-purple heart------purple heart is badass and sexy
6-elisa -god eater----------waifu level over 9000
7-yuna and raiden----------good characters
8-rorona------------------ great waifu
lighting only won for what final fantasy is more mainstream for that more otakus can play his game.

KonsoruMasuta952d ago

You're list is terrible because there isn't enough Chie! You can't talk about good waifus and not list Chief from Persona! It's like an unwritten rule.

dark-kyon952d ago

this is not my list,is the ranking of dengeki playstation award top characters of 2013.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI951d ago

Reading comprehension man. Learn it.

KonsoruMasuta952d ago (Edited 952d ago )

I'm sure the DangekiPSAwards didn't call Hatsune Miku the best waifu ever. That's what I'm referring to.

elda952d ago (Edited 952d ago )

The USA don't see Lightning but Japan does I don't mind Lightning either I'm enjoying LR:FF-XIII.

ltachiUchiha952d ago

I wouldve picked Oliver from Ni No Kuni instead of lightning. Ni No Kuni was a much better game IMO. Very underrated game.

goldwyncq951d ago

I'd take Lightning over a clueless and bland kid who's friends are much more interesting. How can you even say that the game is underrated if it got mostly 9s in reviews?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI951d ago

I don't think you get the context of this vote...what you're suggesting is kinda messed up since Oliver is 13

SG1_dapunisherX952d ago (Edited 952d ago )

lmao lighting best character of 2013 what a joke! I can name 10 characters who is better then her
