Wasting Time in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Jackson writes: Time is such a daunting thing. Ever-present, unwavering, incorporeal. In our reality, we find it hard to imagine time without the use of a clock, or a calendar. We use numbers to define an entire dimension; to make it easy to comprehend the unfathomable periods that have elapsed between The Beginning of Everything and Now. We use numbers to know when to expect the sun to rise, or how long two teams have to win a contest of basketball. We need time. Time, as difficult as it is to truly define, is essential to life as we know it.

But video games are different – they operate under their own calendars, under their own rules. Those physical laws and human constructs that we call time can be manipulated freely in video games. They are often so good at this distortion that we lose track of time, playing until early hours of the morning. Should a video game remind us that our time outside of it is precious? (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is the best FF since X. I'm playing by the guide right now, so no time wasted. I'm currently 20+ hours in. This game was well worth the $25 I spent.

I wasted my time with XIII. Ain't gomna happen again.

It's the worst and most linear FF game ever.

Waste of time even writing this article.
...IT'S OVER. Stop trying to make FFXIII happen.
