Before starting, I want you to know two things:

1.- My english is not perfect.
2.- I know that everyone likes different things.

I played both games (didn't buy them), finished the first one and didn't like them. I decided to read and watch reviews by fans (I don't trust "professional" reviews) and most of them were dissapointed:

* You don't have control over the whole party.
* X button will do anything you want.
* Leveling up: Making your characters stronger was terrbile but I liked a bit the way you have to upgrade a weapon.
* Too linear and no towns (fixed in the sequel).
* Too many endings: To me that was boring, I do not even liked the story.
* Catching monsters: This is supposed to be Final Fantasy not Pokémon.

The moments (♠), music (♪) and characters (♦) are stupid:

♠ There are lots of cutscenes but not memorable events.
♠ Lightning's speech before facing Orphan 01: It was kind good but it was stolen from Terra's speech before facing Kefka.
♪ The soundtrack is too animeish and the tracks that included a violin are annoying.
♪ Born Anew: One-Winged Angel rip-off, compare the lyrics if you want.
♪ Nascent Requiem - 1:40, someone didn't make it to the bathroom.
♦ The only character design that I liked was Lightning using that Etro's Champion armor.
♦ Orphan 01: The kitchen utensil that wants to commit suicide and uses Merciless Judgement (Sephiroth's Heartless Angel).
♦ Orphan 02: A baby-faced clock or the result of mixing Brawshellla (Blazing Star) and Galactic Nova (Kirby Super Ultra)?
♦ Jet, Amber and Garnet Bahamuts: Someone got inspired by Yu-Gi-Oh!

The worst: Fanboys/girls. Here are some comments by those idiots:

"You're pretty annoying. I think we understand that you don't like this game, return it, get your money back, and get off the forum. Go play something else."
"He hates it yet he spends more time on it and talking about it than most people that love the game, lol"
"i dont understand one thing here...ppl say they hate final fantasy xiii, and yet they still click on the vids...and they give the poster of the vid not only views, but comments too...could someone explain this to me?"

Some weeks (months?) ago Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy: XIII was announced, here are my thoughts:

* A rose can have many meanings: If you're saying that a rose can represent the female sexual organs, you're right, if not, stop saying BS.
* Novus Partus will be exterminated in thirteen days, it reminds me of Termina Field from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
* Will it have a Yu-Gi-Oh! monster or an inanimate object as final boss?
* What about FFT-0 and FFVsXIII?
* Why Square Enix insists in making games that most of people doesn't want?

1. You'd cry about the game being too fast.
2. X does the same thing in the other games too.
3. Lol, I guess you hated lvling up in the other games too.
4. Play FFX its linear as all hell, all FF games are linear they just give you the illusion of freedom.
5. Another stupid reason.
6. Play FFV, you could do in that game too.

1. This looks memorable ([Only registered and activated users can see links]) to me
2. FF7 did the same thing.
3. Stupid Complaint
4. OWA talks about an idiot whose mad and BA talks about seeking death to bring back their God.
5. Stupid Complaint
6. Stupid Complaint
7. Heartless Angel isn't sephiroth's attack its Kefka's
8. Symbolism
9. Somebody never played FFIX

They're right, you're dumb as f*ck for wasting your time viewing, writhing, and looking at something you hate.

1. Who Cares
2. Again who cares
3. Stupid Complaint
4. Type-0 isn't coming no time soon and they already said for the millionth time to wait for Versus
5. I didn't ask for sh*tty FF7 games or the Crapilation.

This entire boils down to this, "Waaahh its not like "Insert game here" so Im going to whine about it. Please grow up and accept that F is always changing.

You wasted your time reading a thread you know you would hate.


Please grow up

What about you?


you're dumb as f*ck

I didn't ask for sh*tty FF7 games or the Crapilation.

Don't bother responding to this message. Bye!

To me, Final Fantasy died since Hironobu Sakaguchi and Nobuo Uematsu left.
I'm not a fanboy, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy looks really nice.

Yoshinori Kitase (game) and Masashi Hamauzu (music) dissapointed a lot of fans.

Maybe Tetsuya Nomura (GAYme) and Yoko Shimomura (music) can do something better with FFVsXIII.

It's okay your not the only one who thinks it sucks. I HATE it they really need to move on because it's discouraging to hear that another XIII is being made. Like really again after how bad XIII-2 was. It's just absurd that SE still wants to continue this story well hey it's their loss not mine.

I think that FF has moved further into a niche world, appealing only to a certain group of the FF fans. As long as there will be someone liking Lightning they will keep it up.
I too would like them to move on but what can any of us do about it?

I don't like it as much either, too boring and the storyline is hard to get into
