Now we get to talk about all this stuff again? How about I just post a link to my thoughts, that I wrote a year ago. I think I'm allowed to do that.

No, but it was an amazing coincidence that has not gotten me anymore recommendations, so speaking from a technical point-of-view...no.....if I was advertising, I'd be getting money of some sort :P

Hey....leave those people in the past alone, they have no idea how good they have it...

For me, the battle system, the lackluster ending, and Hope's constant whining throughout the whole game is what made be sad that I bought it. The battle system is the worst in the series. If the game can pick the best magic, healing, and attacks faster than I can why would I ever do anything but hit auto-battle? The ending was just so boring. Fighting Dysley over and over again was just boring. He didn't even seem that threatening of a character. Finally, Hope was never needed in the game. I found myself just yelling at my TV, "Leave him behind or just let him die, so I don't have to listen to him anymore!"

@TheWan: The battle system is the worst in the series? It's easily the best in the series.

@vidiot:  In all fairness, there have been far worse ways to revive year-old threads.

I enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII for the time I played it.  I believe I was about 30 hours in and could not beat the latest form of "Bartolomeus" (or something similar, can't remember his exact name).  I really need to go back and try again, although I'd probably have to level grind, which, I'm not a big fan of doing.

I agree. FFXIII has the best battle system in the series.

I think FFXIII is amazing. There's really nothing that I didn't like about that game, and the nerdrage reaction to it baffles me, honestly.

@Hailinel:  Like saying "totally agree man" in response to something someone posted a year and a half ago

That's a pointless complaint about the battle system, because there really is no "best magic". All the magic spells do the exact same amount of damage unless the enemy has some sort of resistance/weakness. The fun of the combat system isn't in scrolling through a list of spells and choosing the best one, it's constantly managing your paradigms to build stun/heal/damage. Also, the auto-battle sucks at healing, so have fun doing that manually.

You're right about the rest though. What an awful game.
