Final Fantasy XIII is the worst title in the franchise's history. So why is Square Enix making a sequel that even hardcore fans haven't asked for?
Neither am i. I want this game to fail, so that SE make FF turnbased again. I want the same battle system as FF1-10 when FF used to be great, go back to your roots: story, gameplay, music, characters, mini games, hard secret bosses,........, graphics. Not the other way round.
Final Fantasy XIII just turned me off the franchise. I don't think I can ever trust Square Enix again. Their name used to stand for quality, now it really doesn't mean much.
I'm not interested either. I feel that SE's quest to modernize the formula is moving in the wrong direction. But that is just me.
I played Final Fantasy XIII. All the way to the end. It was in my opinion the worst Final Fantasy or JRPG I have ever played ( and this is someone who has been playing Final Fantasy since Final Fantasy VI). It just wasn't a good game. They need to let someone else direct main series Final Fantasy (preferably Tabata or Nomura) and go from there. Toriyama has done nothing but bad Final Fantasy games and Square needs to do something about it.
The thing I don't understand is, why force people in to the new class changing battle thing in real time. When past FF games have had an option for both real time and turn based combat? Why can't they implement a "old school" combat scheme which is turn based, you can only change class before combat and 7-8 party members that you can choose from. The new class change shit that they have now is mandatory and that pisses me off.
LOL! Not surprised you're the first comment. Troll much?
How is he trolling? Does he not have the right to say he wants the game to fail?
A troll, calling another a troll lol. Ironic
Lots of positive reviews so far, I can't wait.
Seems like a mixed bag. It's either love it or hate it.
I'm not a fan or a player or FF, but my friends Die hard fans of the FF series, say that that games like XIII and XIII-2 are not games that they take into account that are "true" FF games! But it appears that most of the fans are pissed off with Square Enix... and making this a XIII-2 is a bad move from Square Enix in fact...
I don't know why they just didn't make a brand new title. FF XIII has such a bad rep, even hardcore fans hated the game. Why make another title associated with it? It just doesn't make sense.
That's the real problem with FF13, you just said it. It's the die hard fans who hated it, while most casual gamers liked it because of its more streamlined gameplay and pretty gfx. And casual make up for majority of course. That's why FF13 is actually the best selling title in the series. And for Square Enix it's the sales that really matters. So there you have your FF13-2. I'll not be that surprised if they announce FF13-3 soon.
Isn't it the best selling in the series because it was the first multiplatform day one release? Although I highly doubt it actually is the best selling in the series. Maybe the fastest selling? I'd believe that.
no one cares why you aren't interested.
Looks more cheesy and generic than FF XIII and that game was cheesy too. O MA GOODNESS.
A good title for an article would be "Why I am interested...in your mom."
all these people that hate ff13 and 13-2 and any square enix game and say they arent true ff games and any square enix game ive come to the conclusion that they are only online just like call of duty haters, this internet has lost all credibility with me in gaming period and to the guy above to talk about sales its just like call of duty it doesnt mater what all these nobodies on the internet say about the original ffs before these vs ff13 and 13-2 and any square enix final fantasy just like it doesnt matter about mw1 vs all the call of dutys that came after it, all that really maters is that the sales are high, so i question all of these people on the internet that claim the game isnt good or isnt an original final fantasy or a "bad" final fantasy its just not credible as i am a person who has played all final fantasy games since the early 90s til now and dont feel that way
Are you saying that FF13 is better than FF 6? Better than FF7? Better than FF8? Better than FF9? Better than FF10? Sales are not a indicator of quality. If I were to use your logic Wii Fit would be a better game than FF13. Do you agree with that? If not you're a hypocrite as Wii Fit sold more than 13. FF13 is definitely a bad Final Fantasy there is no doubt about that. When versus 13 comes out you'll see why people don't like 13. You see all the content vs13 has and all the content 13 and 13-2 is missing.
so can you say factually that the people that buy the game on account of people outside of the internet that ALL a majority of them that have played the whole series say the same thing as you? cause as far as im concerned im not an internet account and i can tell you the internet sounds WAAAAAAAAAAAAY different than those offline thats why i can say that ff13 is definitely a good ff game and as good as those games you named
Yes I can factually say that. If I could I would put my life on the line and bet that if we were to hold a survey where everyone that has played at least 4 main FF titles had to pick out of three options: -Is FF 13 better than past FFs you played? -Is FF 13 just as good as past FFs you played? -Is FF 13 worse than past FFs you played? Option 3 would hold the majority of the votes. Plus I know plenty of people that do not go gaming websites that are FF fans and do not like FF13.
well thats a very low chance as me and my squad that have played ff games since the early 90s enjoyed and ff13 and liked it just as much if not more than all the previous ones so i cant take your bet as credible my friend your comment only holds weight online kid oh yeah and we're black, whats so great about that? well black people dont do many things white people do, and no this isnt racist, but getting into ff games period was a jump but yeah ff13 is just as good as the old ones your probably a butt hurt ps3 fan cause ff13 was originally ps3 exclusive, those are the ones that would probably be the ones that you could bet on, and on a lie detector test they would fail as would you
I don't give a hoot if FF13 was an exclusive or not. A bad game is a bad game period. Once again, you'll see how empty and linear 13 is when versus 13 releases.
Well I am interested and so are tons of other gamers. Although I feel they could finish versus or get type 0 out to the US =) Looking forward to the next FF release, I think they have gotten the hit this time around. On a positive note, they are making FFX HD =)
Disconnected from human values. That's why they are failing. All they need is a good story many people can relate to. Times are tough so I'm sure they can build a good game from that. Even FF VII can relate to this day. Can't say much else.
