I dunno, I'm enjoying FF13.... but does that story deserve 3 fucking games or is square just trying to break even on all the development they did on that universe and engine... ?
FFXIII is pretty much a standalone story and ties up most loose ends. FFXIII-2 is similar to Virtues Last Reward in that it tries to continue a pretty much finished story. VLR does handle it a bit better though.
Except for All Ice.
I want lightning returns to die in a fire. XIII was a terrible game, XIII-2 had some decent gameplay but was overall a shitty game, and I'm tired of SE thinking that we want more of this style and world. I genuinely am not excited for this at all, and will do everything I can to give SE no money to support this crappy title.
I had fun with them :(
I like that SE tried to do some new things with the original FFXIII. A lot of them didn't really work out but FFXIII-2 showed the gameplay aspects in a more polished light. Course, three games is a lot of attention to be paying to one world. FFXIII-2 kind of reminds me of FFX-2 in that I enjoyed the gameplay but the story didn't match the first game.
