What If Final Fantasy XIII Had A Different Name?

Final Fantasy XIII didn’t need towns and exploration. What it needed was to be seen outside the context of Final Fantasy.

The story is too old to be commented.

Then I might actually enjoy it instead of it sitting in the gamefly package it came in. Doesn't live up to the quality of previous Final Fantasy (Final Fantasy 1 - 10) games.

I think it we would see articles like

FF XV another repeat of FF XIII instead of articles about disc space or milking.

I think it would have been more accepted by fans of the genre but it wouldn't have sold as much. I mean, FFXIII sold almost 7 millions but there aren't any other Japanese RPGs that can pull out numbers like that.

Then I guess I would have been happier knowing it did not taint the Final Fantasy name lol.

Can't wait for that FF X on PS3/Vita

No. The game known as FFXIII suffered from poor presentation. It wasn't a lack of "towns" but immersive world elements. Characters were introduced but given no level of depth or interaction. They were there for a scene, and then they weren't. The group wasn't out to save the world, just themselves, as by any real indication the world didn't give a damn about itself.

Someone with the budget and resources given to the game, who didn't have IP lore to lean against like a crutch, would have put more creative effort into it.

They sure as hell, knowing full well they only had the one shot, wouldn't have split said resources into a direct sequel.

It would give me hope that FF series could still be truly Epic. After Versus XIII, I'll know if SE deserves my money again.
