On the eve of Final Fantasy XIII-2's release, take another look at the game that started it all.
I'm not sure why, but I kind of liked FF13. I know it recieved a lot of hate for a percieved lack of gameplay, but the story behind it was genuinely interesting and imaginative, much like almost all of the final fantasy series has been. That said, anything with -2 attached to the end is doomed to suffer under mountains of rage and distaste.
i enjoyed it too, Im gettin this for Valentines day so im gonna enjoy it since i enjoyed the first 1
Of course it's not a flop it sold well.
This is going to be another Dreamcast argument isn't it? And #1: Yeah, the story was flat and poorly presented. Potential villains were introduced, barely shown then forgotten. @iamtehpwn: If anything, FFXIII screamed that it needed two things: on-rail flying/shooter segments, and henchmen boss fights. Instead there were CG cutscenes and fights with the exact same boss 3-5 times. @ylwzx3: whatever... Edit: Can't help but notice that FFXIII-2 *DOES* have on rail flying/shooter segments - at least one - but its a bit too much on rails...
On the point with potential villains being forgotten, it was incredibly disappoting that Jihl Nabaat wasn't a boss. I just *knew* she was going to be a boss by pure previous Final Fantasy logic.... you know, she'd transform into a monster or something...and it'd be something like a Lady Yunalesca boss fight. but I guess not :| @GodMars Above I completely agree. Why is that out of all those times you flew an airship, you couldn't control it? All those shoot out sequences in CG scenes, and they didn't make even one interactive. One of things I liked about older Final Fantasy's is that they used mini-games as a way to immerse you, VII did an excellent job at this.
Yeah that's one of the reasons why I loved 7. I loved raising chocobos and racing with them. Good times.
Yeah 7 had the bike game, Chocobo's, the RTS thing on Condor mountain, Submarine combat thing, maze in the snow where you had to use a map. Then the gold saucer and many more small ones like the squatting competition.
At the worst, XIII was a mediocre RPG.
At the best,a tragic and stale piece of an ongoing tragic and stale display
it wasnt a flop outside of the internet where credibility is very lacking, but outside of it it was a giant success
What makes you certain of that? What makes you so sure that outside of the internet everyone loved 13 hmmm?
i dont get the internet firstly, everyone on the internet instantly gets agrees for saying something as small and pointless and baseless as what you just said and gets more agrees than disagrees, yet anyone supporting the game gets disagrees more than agrees, my friend, that alone is enough to let me know that the internet is the only place that people hate the game or think the way that it seems people feel about the game
That doesn't make any sense. First off, what I said isn't pointless at all. How do you KNOW that EVREYONE that bought FF13 LOVED IT? How is that pointless? The people that agree with me are obviously wondering the something. And obviously you can't answer the question. What I see here is that because everyone on the internet does not agree with you that means the internet lacks credibility. With that said I'll ask you this, if it were the other way around, meaning, if everyone on the internet was praising 13 would be saying the same thing? The problem here is that you don't like the fact that people don't agree with YOUR OPINION. You wouldn't be saying such nonsense if everyone agreed with you.
well the fact of the matter is is that ff13 and 13-2 have some things in common, as i said outside the internet people at midnight launches in my several conversations and outside the internet wherever games are talked about no one trashes final fantasy 13 nor 13-2 nor mw3 but on the internet those things are very much the case these games are trashed beyond belief to no end, now if your to stupid to see that the internet lacks credibility then ill let you and your idiot friends think that way i cant change you
1 reason 5 reasons is really 1 massive failure
It wasn't a flop is Garbage
