Oh boo-hoo. You've analyzed the plot of FF13 and enjoyed it more than theologians look at the Bible..
...? I haven't. At best I made sense out of it with the material shared online, playing the game and reading the datalogs, if that makes an horrible person then... okay? I don't know.
I gave my reasons because I enjoy talking about 'visuals' (in general) and I enjoy analyzing these things because I feel I have an eye for it. I hardly expect responses back, nor do I expect many to care the same way I do, but I discuss it because I'm interested in it and I'd rather get discussion back than someone scoring an extra post because he's not impressed,
I made my claim and still said I liked it in the end, so what's your beef?
You got worked up over nothing, Dice. My last post wasn't even meant to piss you off.
The only place I've noticed the anime/realism hybrid look a bit odd is with FF15. I find 13< to be more far enough on the "JRPG" side aesthetic wise that it doesn't seem out of place. But with FF15... I can't even point out what I don't like about it, it just seems like it would be weird to control character models that look so real by dashing about hither and tither.
Maybe it has to do something with the art direction going for a more contemporary look instead of pure fantasy?
