Drama! What a foreign concept to Final Fantasy, just like linearity. They need to stop ♫♫♫♫ing up the formula.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

Yah that's true but that also might be part of the problem. FFX isn't just my fav FF it's one of my fav games of all time so it's kinda hard for me to get my hopes up when I have such high expectations.

But I hope Square proves me wrong.

i wasn't putting it down or anything, i just haven't gotten around to finishing it. i'll consider picking it up again since you're opinion is so encouraging. ^_^ actually, i didn't stop playing it because i didn't like it, rather i got stuck in some place where i had no idea what to do. XP

The song... that "My Hands" song is driving me crazy. The melodramatics is just a huge annoyance.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

Ive played just about all the number FFs and enjoyed them all (some more than others)
My favorite Final Fantasys are FFVI, VII, and Tactics - Yeah FF Tactics had a great story.
the other ones if i were to rank them would be as follows, they are japanese release btw.

FFVIII
FFIV
FFV
FFIII
FF
FFII
FFIX
FFX
FFX-2
FFXII

i didnt really like the "Draw" system in FF8 but other than that it was a great game with many fun sidequests and a great card game.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

I've played most of the Final Fantasy games. The only one I haven't played is XI (I don't do pay-to-play), and the only one I never finished was XII (got sick of the gambit system essentially playing the game for me, and the fact that the BGM didn't change when you encountered enemies on the field map didn't help either).

I'm optimistic about this one, in general the first FF game in each console generation is my favorite (can't make up my mind about the PS1 FF games, all 3 had their own merits that made them great).

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

oh man... ive been hearing a large amount of complaints about the game... and the fact that its being sold new in japan for the price of a old used PS3 game is a serious indication as to how good it is... FF7 was the last FF game i know that could be considered "great" in my opinion. as far as i know for FF games... id rank them high to low of ones ive played

FFVII
FFVI
FFIV
FFX
FFIX
FFXII
FFVIII

but then there are some square games that should also be considered as amazing RPGs too... i remember the heyday of Square games... back in the day of Chrono Trigger, FFVI, and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars...

but anyways, im not going to just toss FFXIII aside just because of how the Japanese took the game... im going to at least try it out and see for myself how well it can hold itself to the old classics.

What's 'holding up to the old classics' got to do anything? I wasn't aware we were afraid of change still.

I'm preeetty sure he meant 'how good it is in comparison with the games we (pretty much) agree are good', not 'I hope this is exactly like the originals'.

Well, I just don't where all the prejudice is coming from though. We don't even have the game yet, just trailers.

I'm pretty sure it's due to how the Japanese market pretty much trashed it. While Japanese reviewers such as the magazine Famitsu gave it great scores, many people spoke up saying it was terrible. People are naturally taking any negative they hear over the good. It doesn't help that several news outlets in the states have already agreed that with the fact that the game isn't very good, then again most RPGs in terms of reviews don't do that great over here.

So it's a matter of perceptive and influence. It's naturally going to happen.

Ah, I see it now. It's basically FFX, but with less stuff, yet more walking...like FFX.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

Despite the Japanese market, I've taken note that in America the Xbox is King and PS3 is the Jester while in Japan it's the complete opposite.
I honestly think FF13 will do well here, and I don't expect a dramatic price drop for the game until a year or so from now.
All I know is...
It won't be all Sugar and Rainbows after this
-shot-

points to anyone who gets that

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

I've been hearing everyone hated it just because of it's linearity. I think that's a bit of an overstatement. DMC, Bayonetta, just to name are few are all linear as well yet no one criticizes them for it. It could be a really good game... Not as nice as it COULD have been mind you, but nice nevertheless. I myself was looking forward to versus more than anything.

Well, both DMC and Bayonetta are also action games though.
