FF13 related comic thing spoiler alert by Wen-M FF13 related comic thing spoiler alert by Wen-M
It's nothing new that games now days are not comparable to the older days...but some ideas are tougher to accept than others...

I am willing to bet you $20 if there is a FF13-4th game, they will do this to Vanille again.

if someone knows a better category this should go into, please let me know. thanks!

images were found on google search, they shall belong to their rightful owners, i take no credit in the creation of them, simply borrowed them to illustrate my points.

They really ramped up the difficulty in Lightning Returns compared to the last two. I barely got to the last boss and couldn't beat it. 

You have no curing abilities (stock up on potions), you don't regen health between fights, you have to block or dodge manually, and you don't have AI partners (except for a couple situations where someone may temporarily join you). The bosses are really tough and there is no such thing as power leveling. You only increase your stats by performing quests (so I guess that makes it "power questing").

However, if you do end up being unable to beat said final boss (like me) there is a Majora's Mask like thing to turn back time and try again. You keep your stats but can redo all the quests again so it is quite a bit easier at that point. However, you take a nasty HP penalty (lose something like 5% of your health at the start of each battle).

The story is good. I was happy. There were a few parts where my lack of perfect fluency left me hanging, but I eventually figured it out on the second play through.

The one thing that surprised me the most was that if you kill the same enemy in random encounter battles over and over again they can actually become extinct. It is quite a weird little feature. There are a couple quests to make specific monsters go extinct and one guy who wants you to do so to every monster in the game.

The costumes are crazy. There is a huge variety. They have interesting effects like what her poses and quotes are during battle as well as what random people around town say when you run by them. If you are wearing one of the costumes that comes from a different FF game (Cloud's suit, Aerith's suit, Yuna's suit, Miqotte's suit) it will play that game's victory music at the end of battle. 

Now I have to find time to play the X/X-2 HD remake between rounds of XIV and Link to the Past 2.

Gameplay was amazing, right up my alley with juggles, and combos. Story was very mediocre. But hey thats games now adays, Come up with a mediocre story, create characters that are easily relatable to, and give them a good moral standing in whatever their eneavors may be. OH AND DONT FORGET THE FEELS YOU GOTTA ADD THE FEELS, People love that crying shit!! Voila! You got a game. : )

XIII was amazing imo (wish i could rewatch all of the cut scenes w/o having to replay the game). not the best but amazing and it didn't need a sequel. XIII-2 almost could have been it's own story in the series i thought...

regardless of XIII-3 being good or bad ill buy and play it...

i just wish they would have kept the gameplay the same as it was in the first game....i liked the original crystarium and i miss having more than 1-2 characters to switch between...even if i did always play as the same 3... it was nice to have that choice...which seems to be the center piece for the whole story line.

X was also really good, but since they've lost the gameplay factor for good and narratives are confusing and nonsensical.
Hope XV is any better than XII and XIII

XV looked pretty good. Saw their trailer, and the battle system seems to be entirely different from 13 and even the previous series. Might just be me though. xD

Like they say at the spoonyexperiment.com, FFXIII is an epic failure of both storytelling and game design.

I don't know, it feels like many of these narratives are first drafts. They have a great premise, but there's several fundamental blunders, massive plot holes, poor pacing, overblown scoping, incoherence, and general lack of polish that makes me think the writer writes one draft and says "THIS IS THE GREATEST STORY EVER!" This became apparent to me when I played The World Ends with You. At the end of the game, I noticed giant plot hole that completely took me out of the experience.

I can't explain it without spoiling in public, but basically, the entire story and the plot twist hinges on the villain's motivations, which make absolutely no sense.

I kinda like how they decided to sacrifice their own freedom to rescue cocoon in the end.  One of my favourite FF endings actually.

it was nice, but they completely un-did that whole moving moment, when they decide to let her out again. It is all of these repeating poor plots that makes me feel betrayed, if a story makes you cry and then makes you be glad they come back, once is ok, twice is hard to take, more than twice you just feel like a dumb ass for ever listening to their bull shit.

FFXIII is a good game, but it was an over-fix, so to speak. FF games are a fine balance of story and open world. But after FFXII, people complained it was too open-worlded, not focusing enough on the story, and so came FFXIII, which is the exact oposite. XIII-2 fixed that with by re-adding branching story.

AFAIK, most countries accept "fair use" like things like parodies and such as legal. DA should accept reality and just change that © thing into Author (or something) or start mass-wiping things…

DeviantART is an American company, its servers are in America, so obviously it has terms of use to match the laws of the country it's located in. The rules and laws of other, unrelated countries are irrelevant to how DA works.

I was quite a fan of Final Fantasy 4-9 (excluding 8) and got really hyped about FF13, but then I saw Yahtzee's review of the game and it put an end to that.
It did inspire me to animate Yahtzee's character eviscerate Vanille with various weapons.
