This is only a rant thread and i would like comments and suggestions but please don't be offended by content. This whole thing is my oppinion and i would love to hear feedbacks.



If you think about it XIII was meant to be that way as a base story for the whole thing... Made mostly for the story... Who gives a crap about it being linear and Vanille isn't all that bad if you think about it. Sure she can be annoying but I'm sure everybody knows somebody like that in real life... So why bash on her... It's such a retarded reason to not like the game... And Hope?? Even though he pissed me off a bit (only because i knew what happened to his mom) he was still kinda cool... The story line and graphics were great and you can say the battle system was experimental... The games isn't perfect i will admit but it was fantastic... Final Fantasy has always been about the story line and each one has something that you aren't gonna like... But they are all great... Even XIII and XIII-2 will probably be better... Even though they are giving in to the people on it (Which i think is absolutely retarded) it should still be fun... Now i think XIII was an absolutely great accomplishment in the line of Final Fantasy games and Square Enix should be proud of it... Anybody that says its a horrible game wouldn't know a great game if it slapped them in the face with a brick and screamed in their ear saying "HEAR I AM!!!"

Yes the game has a good story In my opinion, but it fails to tell the story properly to the general audience. That's why people perceive the story as rubbish.
Overall, the game is not immersive enough for people to like it. It's relatively shallow without real towns, exploration, etc.
Just face it. FFXIII is not a good FF game. That's why many FF fans really really loathe it.
I like XIII, as I have said many times, but I don't love it as much as other FF games.
Yes it's a mediocre/okay-ish game to me, but I sometimes can't stand people calling the game filth, rubbish, shit, etc.

lol thanks for the advice... im just one who absolutely hates when people bash wht i like... i will say XIII is in my top 6 FF games since ive only played half of them i believe... but its only cause i enjoyed the story and the graphics... i really cant wait for XIII-2 since its mostly about serah and you didnt see much of her except in flashbacks... but i do have high hopes for it...

The long and short of it? Because it's a crap game, that's why

I agree with you that FF has always been about storyline. The problem with FFXIII is that it didn't have one. Now, I'm perfectly willing to accept the classification of a "story driven game" or whatever they said it was, but the problem was that it lacked the story. It was a stream of random events strung together without a decent antagonist to hold it together, a recycled and outright terrible cast of characters without even a shred of emotion in some and an excess of random emotion in others, and there was nothing even remotely redeemable about it.

The soundtrack was atrocious, which I find unforgiveable, and the battle system...well, "press X to win" is a bit inaccurate, but only regarding boss battles. The linearity is perhaps the last thing I'd pick at, if only because there were so many other damning flaws in it to begin with.

But seriously, why do people bash it? Personal preference. I happen to like thought-provoking storylines, excellent soundtracks, engaging characters and gameplay, and something that isn't just pretty graphics. FFXIII was none of these to me. It's as simple as that. You don't like it? Well, to be blunt, tough shit. I'm attacking the game, not you personally because you like it, so you shouldn't go after me or anyone else who didn't like it purely and simply because we don't agree with your opinion. Simple as that.

I like the game so far though I keep getting stuck on hard bosses and have to cp farm for ages, like right now for example I will be cp farming for the next 12 hours just to get over this hump in the game, once I beat the boss the monsters will be easier than when you first start the game. The backwards leveling system also threw me off, im not a fan of leveling up my weapons. Just let me train my characters the way I want to train them.

After all that, I still think its a good game. Just wish I had time to finish it.

you never actually have to cp farm... all it takes it the right strategy with your paradigm shifts... if you have the right combination then you are good to go

because it was a shitty game. as far as most gamers go, I'm really not that picky (despite whatever impression my past criticisms have left you with) and I can play just about any game that features decent gameplay.

FFXIII has, hands down, the clunkiest and most meaninglessly drawn out gameplay that I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing.

It's motherfucking worse than Disgaea if you were item worlding and didn't realize that there was an option to tell every druid character in the game that they were massively self absorbed cunts for thinking that you even gave the slightest fuck that they took a crap on your empty bonus gauge by turning off enemy animation effects.

And that, OP, is the reason why I hate Final Fantasy XIII. Your mileage may vary.

While I am loving FFXIII at the moment, I can see the flaws in it, incredibly so. I knew from the moment I started playing it many wouldn't like it; mostly for the reasons people have mentioned above. I wouldn't let it get to you that much. I don't haha.
