The lights are on
Square Enix's flagship series has been so influential to the genre that it's almost synonymous with RPG. Use this space to share your favorite Final Fantasy moments or gossip about the happenings in Vana'diel. What's your favorite Final Fantasy?
I don't see why everyone hates FF 13. I mean its not the best FF by any means but, why do people have to bang on it so much. I personally love 9 the most and I ve played FF 4,7,8,9, and 13 and
I like 13 I just like other ones more but really 13 is qa good game just cause its not perfect that doesnt mean you should hate!
Everyone hates XIII because it is a rape of the Final Fantasy name. I would be ok with it, if it didn't have the Final Fantasy title, but as it does, it doesn't live up to the other games in the series, therefore, it sucks.
If you bred HK-47, Shale, Chai Ka and Wrex, the gaming world would explode from sheer badassery.
Everybody hates FFXIII because it's new. Whenever a new game in a franchise comes out, people's expectations are extremely high, and there's simply no way they're going to be fulfilled (this goes double for XIII, since it was delayed for 3 years). In a year or two, XIII will start getting the respect it deserves.
I like girls. But now... It's about justice.
LOL Well put sergeantluke
LOL you are one of my new best friends on here IX is my fav too! :D
But Sergant is right. Everytime a FF comes out everyone complains about how it is new and not enough like the old ones or the gameplay/story/characters/sidequests/world suck. But after giving it a year or two people who aren't die hard first day buy people start playing and the score/rating ends up evening out.
FFXIII isn't my favorite. But it is a nice game. It's beautiful to look at, the characters are diverse and it has the crazy plot twist story that all FF are known for :)
And even though I am a HUGE fan of old school turn based I really do like what they did with this battle system. Yeah it does play itself if you do that autoplay thing but if you play like you should it can be fun/challenging and the battles don't get old so quick.
GIOR Sponsor stuff :D
I love all of the FFs but I can't stop playing X. I just love the story and characters. Also the love story
it just didnt stand out as a final fantasy to me, the combat was fun and the story was good, but way to linear and not enough side quests and such to do which i have been used to up to final fantasy 10, which IMO is the last great final fantasy.
it doesn't suck that's for sure, but it just doesn't satisfy my final fantasy need. After 10 i sort of stoped playing them. but the game is just to linear for me couldnt handle it, but it was a well made game.
It wasn't the best, but it wasn't awful.
On a scale of 1 to 10:
Graphics a 10
Gameplay a 9
Characters a 6
The Story a 5.
The characters were not that memorable and the story was weak. I think the question factor in the main story was the only thing that kept me going.
My personal favorites in the Final Fantasy series are:
The rest is ok.
I don't hate Final Fantasy XIII; I just thought it was too linear and had an asinine ending conflict. I think you are completely exaggerating what is a valid criticism of an otherwise stellar gameplay experience.

I love FFXIII. It's one of my favorite RPGs. It's battle system is fantastic.
ff xiii is my least favorite final fantasy, i stop play it cause it just didn't open up like other ff titles did, then making the too simplistic. the battle mechanics was good, but battle combat and action felt like a loop from begin to end with exception of boss fight. battles should be more involving what they brought me, i'm not proposing boycott over the new ff title. i'm just done with ffxii altogether bring ff xiv, oh that failed too... how bout ffxv they gotta get it rite by then or re-hire hironbou or make ff tactics 2 (i love tactics, the best story telling in ff library)
It's all relative really.
Personally I liked XIII, and I'm pretty sure I'll like XIII-2. XIII wasn't my favorite, nor was it in my top 5 FF titles, but I still had a good time with it.
Some have good reasons to like it, some have good reasons to hate it. Others who claimed it sucks have their own reasons for thinking that, just like you and I have good reasons for saying it was good.
They have their opinions and we have ours. They opinion isn't worth anymore than ours, and ours isn't worth any more than theirs. Just don't let them get under your skin when the haters go on hating. They do have their reasons, lol.
Well, I feel like XIII is probably my #3 final fantasy game, with IX being my favorite and X being my second. It was a great game, with a great system and story. Seriously, what is it with people hating on the story? A lot of people say it is confusing, but among my friends, we found it entertaining. And not confusing. Seriously, what is it with that? Anyone want to explain?
Good point, it was complicated but it was all explained in some way.
