Apparantleyfinal fantasy 13 is only worthy of an 83 percent....

 

Hey thats ok battlefield is sitting near 90 percent.....

 

Un-F-#$%ing believable. Even though im personally only about 8 hours into final fantasy 13, the game is aboslutley stunning. Im almost in a state of mental shock playing such an amazing game after heavy rain....too many synapses firing in my brain all at once. The end result is a gamer state of enlightment. And a headache....

The good headache though...the kind you get when you become so immersed..so enthralled...so awestruck by something that it overwhelmes your spirt.

Sure i guess the game could stumble at this point, but if you read the actual "content" of the reviews next to the scores you will find something even more alarming. A wave of followers. All it took was one " oh my god final fantasy 13 is so linear!" and the walls start crumbling. You cant fault the graphical style or direction....nor the depth of the combat....hell the story is as engrossing as ever. But that linearity....well thats just terrible!

Sigh....most final fantasy fans already own this game....but for those who are holding on to your money and reading the wave of underwhelment...go buy this game now. Its amazing.

battlefield bc2 is a multiplayer game, people get more of a rush playing the multiplayer and it's one of the best online shooters i've played in the past few years.
 
i'm only 4 hours into final fantasy 13 and yah it's ok so far.  Two completely different games so i don't know why you are comparing the two.

It might be higher, but i'd more easily buy FFXIII than the Bad Company. Modern day shooters aren't my thing.

Its not really a comparison of the games... but rather a question to reviewers asking why they rated FFXIII so low. FFXIII is a great JRPG... something that has become fairly rare in the past decade.

Or, maybe FF13 just isn't the super amazing game you think it is....OR, (Hold on to your hats) MAYBE In Your Humble opinion its better but In My Humble opinion it is a game that I will never finish because I can't play more than a couple of hours without wanting to sleep.

I like FF13. I see where people have their problems with it but I don't care, so long as I enjoy it that's all I truly care about.  
 
And I also enjoy Bad Company 2, both are outstanding games in their respective genres.

Impossible to compare, maybe you should toss in Gran Turismo and Street Fighter IV as well for good measure. I for one, can't stand turn based JRPG's. It's all a matter of taste.

Borderlands is as much an RPG as Diablo is, that is to say, not at all. You should have said Mass Effect. Anyway, what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, this thread is mind bogglingly pointless

OH MY GAWD THAT WOU- 
 
Oh wait, Mass Effect 2. 
 
Also this is the dumbest idea for a thread since... fuck I dunno, 75% of the Hamburger threads? (The good ones being the ones that show off monstrous burgers of awesome) 
 
Also I disagree with the OP. It's entirely possible to fault the art direction and depth of combat. It's called criticism. And yeah here's mine: 
 
Enough spiky haired anime teens. Nomura couldn't have been less inspired with this one. At least the older FF games had something original to the look, but this just seems like he's making fun of himself. Which maybe he is, and FF13 is secretly genius in a Suda 51 kinda way. 
 
The combat depth boils down to hitting A, and swapping classes willynilly. Deep, yo.

You have to consider that games are scored based on how they are compared to other similiar games. So BC2 might be a really good FPS, while FFXIII is good, but maybe not as good as some of the other FF games.
 
Besides, scores and comparing them are useless.

I'm probably biased, and I haven't even tried FF13 yet, but I got to be honest.
I actually find it kind of refreshing to hear something critical about a Final Fantasy game instead of endless hyperbolic gushing 9.9/10s.

I wouldnt even consider it if it was in the Bargain bin.  Which is where it belongs.  The original Pokemon was a deeper and more open game than this.  Seriously, think about it!

No, because that goes back to the retarded debate of what an RPG is we have had in other threads. But yeah I agree thread is rather dumb.

But then where do people who were insulted or offended by scores of less than 9.5/10 go to post their asinine comments?

I'm with Nictel. The only people I know who liked 3 better, were the people who didn't play enough 1.
But I digress, all three were better than both FF13 and Battlefield. :)
