Inb4 last ditch attempt at recapturing audience through revamping FFVII then completely screwing it up.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I loved Lightning, and I don't mind fanservice, but that change was completely unnecessary

Never got through FFXIII. I'm certainly going to revisit it at some point, but something put me off. Not sure if it was the (imo) awful English voice acting, or the combat system. I wish FF games would come with an option for original Japanese audio and English subs. :(

I dunno, I liked some of it.
Also loved how they poked fun at themselves.

Currently replaying FFXIII trying to complete it this time (I spent too little time free roaming last playthrough - as usual). The only thing I tend to find a little annoying is the amount of cut scenes. I like tyhe cutscenes, I like the story, but it seems like there is a little too much exposition or rather that it happens a little too often.

Also the "main character KO'ed = game over" annoys me, I'm used to having a healer ready to pick up someone - also being able to actually feel that I'm the one doing the damage, rather than the AI.
Oh and the fact that "Auto" is supposed to be the correct way to go 99% of the time.
Main Characters:
Nooska, Blood Elf BM/SV Hunter on Argent Dawn (EU)
Morosin, Bloody freezing orc death knight on Argent Dawn (EU)
Niisca, Shady forsaken "priest" on Argent Dawn (EU)

Because her breast size is why the game sucked so hard.

The game sucked so bad because the bad guys were lame. Vanille was lame. And Lightning's sister was lame... seriously... you spend all the first game seeing Snow do tons of things just to save her, and in the 2nd game, she's prancing around with another dude. I didn't even bother getting XIII-2...


I think at this point, the only way SE can save any face is to redo VII for PS4

If they haven't remade it by this point... I doubt they will. The game graphics are just too old - they'd have to physically remake the entire thing. At least with X and X-2 the graphics weren't awful, they just needed refining. I think VII is pretty much a lost cause.

This has been harped on before, at length, but why the fuck did they ever go to the auto combat system? No one likes NOT controlling their characters. Particularly since we've had that ability since the first freaking game! It actually pains me that I don't like XIII. I've tried twice now to complete it and I just lose interest halfway through. I so badly wanted to love the game and I just can't force myself to. I've gone backwards and am now playing VIII for the first time and I'm just sitting here going "why the hell doesn't XIII play like this?!?!"

My guess is that they wanted the battle system to feel more real time rather than turn based. So in turn, you cannot control all 3 characters at the same time.

It was pretty much the same system used in Star Ocean 3 and Kingdom Hearts, 'cept it actually worked in those games.

But the "helpful" characters in KH were so peripheral that they were almost completely ignored. To the point where when you mentioned it just now I had to think back to what the heck the other characters actually were. God I can't wait for the next KH game.

Final Fantasy was shit after IX. Just sayin.

The fact that Squeenix somehow continues to crap out these terrible games amazes me.

EDIT: While I usually prefer roman numbers, I'll go with "the usual" here since I'm mentioning a few of them.. >_>

I loved the way combat and powers work in 7. And by powers I mean things like materia in 7, junctions in 8, sphere grid in 10 (I don't remember what 9 had - enchanting?), and so on. For me the turning point happened after 10. I found that game to be alright. I played through X-2 but didn't enjoy it that much. Never had time to play it when 12 released, and I've yet to get past the first disc of 13. :(

Frustration: Unskippable cutscenes. Acceptable on first playthrough, infuriating plague on anything after - be it a load game or complete replay.

FF9 has one of the most touching storylines I've ever seen in a video game. I cryed at the end Q_Q
