The news has been bombarded with disappointment and negative feedback concerning Final Fantasy XIII, although there remains a strong, loyal following that claims the skepticism is unfounded.
"although there remains a strong, loyal following that claims the skepticism is unfounded." Yes...Those are the FF fanboys. The one's who will buy anything with "Final Fantasy" slapped on the box regardless if it is bad. Meanwhile, everyone else knows that the game is bad and will skip it for games like BC2, Yakuza 3, Resonance of Fate, & God of War 3.
You realize that out of all the games on your list, only one is an RPG right? Just saying - lame attempt. And as for being a FF fanboy I'll end up buying the game, but I'm very skeptical about any JRPG this gen only being good looking PS2 title at best. The JP devs just aren't ready for HD consoles. Consoles that are closer to PCs. They don't want to put the effort it takes to make something like an UC2 or ME of JRPGs.
Actually, I would say he listed two RPGs. I would count Yakuza 3 as one.
