I bet that just like Tidus was the "main" character in FFX when it should have been Yuna, it'll be the same this time with Noel.

That's stupid. The games storytelling mechanics wouldn't have worked if Yuna was the main character.

Yeah, because she was getting kidnapped all the time.

You're not wrong in that gameplay wise Tidus was the main character, the one who's eye the player saw the world through, but in the full sense everything was all about Yuna.

And imagine if, as the main character, they showed Yuna growing from someone needed to be protect into a protector? After all that was her role in game; someone who was sacrificing herself for the benefit of the world. Traveling with Auron who knew that the Pilgrimage was a crock that had to stop.

In that same vain given how she was in XIII, what little was shown anyway, do you really want Serah's perspective?

timid way she acted in FFX, I wouldn't want them telling me I was supposed to be her.

it seems to me that square enix just likes dumping money down the drain.

Well, overall as a company they haven't don't too well; but despite how some people may have felt about XIII it did do fairly well for them.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I enjoyed XIII enough that I'm looking forward to the sequel.

The reason FFXIII felt linear was because there wasn't any world. They basically just guided you through levels, I didn't feel like I was part of a world. The world in FFXIII looks interesting but not showing it off by having different towns with identities, different explorable environments etc.. made FFXIII feel like they were presenting the game FPS style. Go through level (cutscene) go through level (cinematic boss fight) go through level....

ceedubya92686d ago

This seems to be one of the main things that they worked on for this sequel.

Maybe only two playable character in FFXIII-2??Noel&Serah?

I had read in some interview that Lightning will eventually be a playable character at some point in the game. Unforunately I don't remember the source that I read the interview from.
