The Spoony One: What can I do for you, except review another Final Fantasy atrocity? It’s the much-maligned sequel to a game I already hate! How much worse could it be?
Holy crap, he brings up some really good points. Especially about the history/creation of the Garment Grids. It really makes no sense when you think about it. Also, I lol'ed at this: Yuna: "Our barkeeps a Hypello. Nobody knows his real name, so everyone just calls him Barkeep." Spoony: "Yeah, that is a real problem. Let's see if I can solve that one: ASK HIM HIS FUCKING NAME!"
The thing about the FF franchise, like most fantasy games, its always called for suspension of disbelief. That you believe in the world. Thing is of course the more the series has adopted higher and higher quality graphics and CG cutscenes, the more obvious plot holes become noticeable. Really doesn't help though that aid plot holes became larger and larger.
Yeah, I agree there. Take the battle systems for example. Most gamers accept that the characters and enemies aren't REALLY just standing around waiting for each others "turn" before they attack. Gamers can suspend their disbelief for the sake of the game's gameplay. But as soon as those gameplay mechanics are actually mentioned by the characters in-game (like the dresspheres were), then the developers have to explain where the dresspheres came from, how they work, who invented them, why the characters forget certain moves depending on their outfits, etc...and in FFX-2's case, the explanation made no sense.
