XII was alright, but to me it pales in comparison to the older Final Fantasies. Anyway, I would like to see some gameplay footage of XIII.

agreed, I just wasn't drawn into it as much as the previous games... but it wasn't completely terrible. "
Though the characters weren't as strong as in other entries in the saga, the gameplay was the best in a final fantasy game for me. 
 
I loved the battles in FF12, since i'm a bit tired of the repetitive turn-based combat. 
 
About the game itself, nice but no dice.  
 
I won't buy it as it doesn't seem anything special.

Exactly my thoughts. For some reason FFXII didn't quite feel like a FF game to me... maybe im just crazy tho.
 
But I am really excited for FFXIII :)

I think...they should just release the damn game already. Can't wait.

Looks like every other post-VII Final Fantasy. And by that I mean boring and pretentious. 
 
Hey, you asked.

The one thing I expect to regret about XIII is that due to XII's relative unpopularity, the murky politics will be lost along with the battle system.  That game had a lot of problems but a great story and I expect XIIIs to be back to more of a personal love and hope kind of focus like the traditional FF mixture.. Here's hoping I'm wrong.

"what do you think FFXIII?" me: Most anticipated game of 2010 and maybe even game of the year 2010. I've waited damn long for this game, I hope it comes with English subs for JPN release :( I'm also waiting for that surprise square enix said they had...

Unfortuantely you seem to be right.
I loved XII's focus on the political powers, everything was more gray, rather than the usual black and white heroes and villans.
 
It definitely did have its problems, the story really wasn't compelling enough to keep the game going.. but I prefered it over the pre-teen melodrama of X that we seem to be returning to in XIII.  They say they want to focus on the characters and emotions, but the last trailer was just cringe worthy..  I'm quite sure other 2010 RPG's are going to do what it's attempting to do far better, and without so much cheese and overly long cut-scenes.

I liked FF12 but just about every Final Fantasy after 7 went the J-pop route and right now its starting to show its annoying-ness..
