Venture Beat “If you believe the internet, Final Fantasy XIII is the worst thing to ever happen to a historic RPG series. I don’t agree. Final Fantasy XIII and its sequels are fine.
When Final Fantasy XIII came out and it wasn’t the second coming of JRPGs, it took a lot of flak. But now that it’s been almost a decade since its release, maybe we can look at Final Fantasy XIII with more gentle expectations. No, it isn’t the next Final Fantasy VII. It’s not one of the best entries in the series. But Final Fantasy XIII is still a fun and beautiful RPG that doesn’t deserve as much vitriol as it receives.”
