You give off weird vibes to me(I don't mean it in a derrogatory way). You talk like someone who has been through a lot, like a veteran of war who possibly lost some limbs and fought a lot of battles and just gave up on life(in terms of internet discussions).
And what do you want me to say when a lot of the people that play Square games suffer from Stockholm Syndrome? If I say too much they get salty so I rather leave most of that noise alone.
Having to read supplemental material outside and unrelated to the game to get the most out of it is silly, no matter the series.
It depends on the series and it's audience. You can develop an audience for that kind of content, and those who don't like it have the choice of ignore it if they are comfortable doing that.
Can we at least agree that the twist at the very end of LR was unnecessary, stupid, and cheapened the whole series?
