Were XIII and XIII-2 just time fillers?

@Morrow: Hey, I was just making a prediction here based on SE's past decisions and operating patterns. I gave up on Vs 13 years ago, you should probably do as well. Otherwise you're just setting yourself up for disappointment. Or don't. I don't care either way.

I am looking forward to Versus as I do to some other games. It'll be fun once it's out, it's not the meaning of my life. I could wait for Skyrim (which I was kinda disappointed of), and I can wait for Versus. Just because you abandoned it doesn't mean everyone has to... ^^

@Morrow: it was actually before ff13-2 was announced when that artical was published. But ff13-2 was not entierly developed by square first production but it was co-developed by tri-ace.  I am  more interested to see if it comes out and that tales games has taken the crown of the jrpg like 2chan has been sayin.
Or if persona5 is out by the time of ffvs13 is out and the sales of persona5 is higher then the vs13 and the reason I am interested bt this is because that would mean that the 2chan dudes are right that the ff name is tainted by the latest games in the series.

I'm not familiar with 2chan, but in the eyes of the FF fans the image of the franchise has definately been tainted. Almost every FF fan who played most former titles says that. You don't really need to be clever or something to realize that... just read the gamers reviews.

However, I never owned a PS2 so XIII and XIII-2 were my first major FFs, so I can't really take a side here.

Every time I see a thread title about FFXIII I think that a sequel to XIII has been announced.

Everytime I see XIII I think of an underrated FPS game that could've been amazing given more time for polish.

@Morrow: Was it just me that thought that FF 13 was a great game? You kinda discredit it alot, but I felt that it created some great characters and had a heartfelt story.

@ItBeStefYo: Hmmm sorry that it sounds like I'm discrediting it, I enjoyed it. I'm just aware it can't hold up to other FF titles. I did enjoy FFXIII-2 a lot though, one of the very few games I got a platinum trophy for. I just found it a bit too short.
