    (To be fair... ALL in all... I liked FF XIII, because of the post-game stuff in Pulse being tons of fun given the sweet battle system. I did a lot of the optional stuff and didn't get bored at all by it. But yeah, huge disappointment as a story-driven RPG.)

    Here, they keep things simple. They concentrate on the Bros, build up their characters, and then give you a plot you can follow, with simple, deposed prince stuff, as opposed to L'Cie, Fal'Cie, "We are fighting our focus," and all kinds of bizarre, made up, meta-physical/existential angst. I wasn't a big fan of Lightning, especially when compared to other FF female characters like Terra or Celes. Here, with the random conversations and character-building scenes, they actually take the time to make you understand and hopefully like these characters.
    Fang was my favorite of the FF13 cast, and Vanille didn't bug me as much as Camera Bro since she just had a shitty voice actor in the english dub. I feel nothing for any of the main characters in 15. They're just black shadows on my screen while I wait for someone more interesting to appear.

    Did you watch the anime? It helps with that a bit imo

    None of my jokes stuck. Fuck you guys
    Oh wow, Onslaught. I totally forgot about this guy. The last I heard he went on some kind of love cruise with Indy and then their ship sunk after some kind of pirates boarded it.

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    I actually liked FFXIII and I did finish the main story
    I think I did some of the post-game stuff too.

    I disliked Snow the most.

    I know his background, but I never watched the actual episode. I don't hate the game, but it's more of an 8/10 for me.

    Out of curiosity, are you playing this with the English voice acting or the Japanese?

    I tried out the first opening minutes in both, but because I'd watched the Brotherhood anime on YouTube, I'd already gotten used to the Japanese voices, so I decided to stick with them. I dunno, they feel like decent characters to me, the camaraderie feels genuine enough.

    So for some reason I picked this up as my 3rd game in the Best Buy buy 2 get 1 free game sale today.

    I haven't been into FF in quite awhile...but I'll give this one a try.

    I just got to the empire portion... this is easily the worst 90 minutes i've ever spent playing a Final Fantasy. Whom ever though this segment was a good idea should be fired. Well they probably were and just couldn't cut this from the game???

    This has just about killed all the positive vibes I had going for this game. If it doesn't get better quick after this 6/10 feeling right now. This so little mainline story it's almost depressing.

    I did? I liked the game but I don't remember liking it perfect score. Sounds kind of made up since i score out of 10 most of the time.
