Final Fantasy XIII-2 has launched and has received good scores. Recently the Final Fantasy franchise has been suffering and for many people who grew up on the classic titles, it’s a painful thing. Final Fantasy XIII was exceptionally painful for many fans. While gorgeous, the game suffered for boring systems and a broken story telling structure; the very reason people loved Final Fantasy while growing up with it. Now with Final Fantasy XIII-2 the curve seems to finally be climbing. To me, Final Fantasy X-III is the ‘Sonic Colors’ for it’s own franchise. In general this game will be dismissed by the masses but slowly people will notice the improvements and if they continue on to the next title, Final Fantasy could be back in the public eye as it once was.
In this Article, I’d like to go over what the original Final Fantasy XIII did wrong. Originally posted in my blog before Gamer Talk existed, below you can find ‘ Final Fantasy and Elements of Story Telling’.
