After recently coming back to it, I realized just how cheesy the dialogue is. Everyone mentions the iconic laughing scene and yes it was undoubtedly horrible but what about everything else? Like the dramatic pauses between--every--freaking--word. Cut scenes like this hold me at the brink of uncontrollable laughter. They couldn't get the lip syncing right anyways so why even bother?
And whats up with the natives building towns next to the ocean? I mean if a giant freaking sea creature patrolled the ocean destroying cities, killing countless amounts of people, feeding their dead bodies to its man-eating babies wouldn't you, I dunno... MOVE AWAY FROM THE FUCKING WATER?
At the very least put up some signs, "Sin Season, GTFO" because apparently the people of Spira have no common sense.
And Waka, ugh...
The guy is supposed to be Yuna's guardian right? Serious business... So Why does he insist on playing blitzball at the most awkward moment in history? Hell why is anyone playing at all? They should be shacking up in there Sin shelters, not clumping together in a big ass stadium. They might as well have hung up a sign on the wall that said, "We're ready to die!"
And another thing, I thought these people don't believe in using machina? They almost had me fooled with the chocobo powered boat engines... so whats up with the giant electronic scoreboard at the tourney? This makes about as much sense as everybody having gills... oh wait
