GameCritics writes: "But isn't Final Fantasy XIII totally old?"
It's true (well not really, but we're using game time here) but this article has been on my mind for quite some time. At first, I held off writing it because everyone was too busy talking about how Final Fantasy XIII is a terrible game, then it was because the game was "too old" to talk about. Fortunately, the recent release of Metroid: Other M has reignited conversation about the portrayal of women in games, and given me the perfect opportunity to get this article out of my mind and off of my back. For those who haven't played Final Fantasy XIII, a warning: this article will attempt to analyze its heroines, and in doing so will contain major spoilers."
