Replaying Final Fantasy 12. It is so damn good.
It’s so disappointing how FF13 (and its unfortunate sequel) turned out. Everything about FF12 feels so polished, there are so many tiny details and things that make you feel like it was made by people who really cared. FF13 has a nonsensical story, bland characters, bland art direction, and so much more.
This post is going to get reblogged with a really “witty” and “biting” gif by that “Shit FF Fans Say” blog, and so be it. Just because I like some Final Fantasy games, it doesn’t mean I have to like them all. I’m a fan of good, well designed videogames. Final Fantasy XIII is not one. I’m cynical and unexcited for FF13-3 because I don’t have any reason to feel otherwise. FF13-2 was better than FF13, but not by enough. The series is a shadow of what it used to be, of what it could be. It’s just a pretty, boring adventure game with some light RPG elements now. It’s not the series it used to be, and it’s not the series I used to love.
Bring it back with FFvs13, Square-Enix. Make a fucking Final Fantasy game.
I think Rare have completely fucked themselves. And - it isn’t their fault; it’s Microsoft’s fault. They [Microsoft] have completely ruined that company, and it makes me cry every day of my life.
