A second look at my least Fav Final Fantasy... 13
Click to go to bottom
Final Fantasy is one of those series I love and am passionate about. I played all games except 11 and 14, because i don't like MMOs and some of the spinoffs. From the simple fun in FF1 to experimenting with Job systems in 3, to loving Kefka in 6, Sephiroth in 7 and Kuja in 9, to the tears and fun of 10 and my first and favourite final Fantasy with 12. Even 15 although it's story was not the best, the time was fun and it made me stick for what it had and Type-0 surprised me for being categorized as spinoff. So I wanted to talk about the one I liked the least which is 13, because I gave it a second chance because of a FF Marathon. And I have to say, I redeemed itself. Let me talk about what I liked and disliked about every game. OG Final Fantasy 13: Before I hated nearly every character, the story was kinda ehh to me, the world felt bland and I hated the combat system as well as the linearity. Thoughts: -I like and understand some of the characters much better. Lightning is not the emotioness blob but a group mon kinda, Vanille is still annoying in her voice but I understand why she acts how she is, Fang is still the only female I like in the game, Hope was a brat but redeemed himself through the whole series. Sazh is my fav character from development and Story. Snow might be a dumbass but his Troy Baker voice and his hard make me like him sorta. Serah though is the weakest to me, she just seems annoying and kinda useless to me. Like she should be the main drive, but everytime I see her I get annoyed with her character -The world is still not big, but the music and themes make it kinda alright, I still don't like the hallways and the system, but I can get why people might like it -Storywise I think the first game was overall the best out of the trilogy, it still had charm and some good moments. -I think thanks to Type-0 I saw both concepts of L'cie and I still like the Type-0 more too, to be a strong power at a cost FF XIII-2: Screw this game, this is the only game where my opinion has not changed and is probably now my least fav in the series. If you introduce time travel, time paradox and Alternate Universe, you know it will get complex without needing to be. And then you make the weakest character of the last game the protag.... I think I should first say the good things, it has some great tracks, like said I love Hopes development, some concepts are interesting, Noel is okay I guess, Caius I liked though. But I think that is it for Positivity. This game is just to me more like they wanted to make 100 what if situations and couldn't decide on what to choose. But I guess that is preferance for me. Now on to the last. Lightning returns FF XIII: It did redeem Lightning a bit, It made a good choice not to include Serah that much, I kinda liked how Lightning and Snow interacted. Overall how the characters interacted, the story was nothing special but it was a up from the second game. It was at least not as clustery. And I liked some of the moments in it. I cant say if it's good or bad but it is at least a improvement. So my Final opinion, give things you dislike a second chance, you might discover some new things. The game still has many flaws but I can understand it's fans now better. Will I be a fan of FF13 now? Probably not, but at least I can appreciate it for what it tried to do. It had some of my fav tracks with Etros Champion, Defiers of Fate, Savior of Souls etc. So what is your opinion? What is your least Fav FF or your Fav FF? Did you also try a game you disliked before?

Caius Ballad is my favourite Final Fantasy villain. That is all I can understand why he was like the only thing i liked about 13-2.

To clarify, I've only completed the X games and the XIII games and I've played some of XII, so I'll grant that the only real villains I've seen are Seymour, Barthandelus and Caius, so it's not really a contest between those three. Though Seymour has some great lines, he's no Caius. Barthandelus... yeah, he sucks. That being said, I've also beaten all the Dissidia games, meaning I've experianced all of the major villains in the series like Kefka, Kuja and Golbez. While I like a lot of those characters (Again Kuja, Golbez, Kefka), I can't say enough to say they are my favourites since I haven't played them though I would like to if I can.
Boi you missed a lot of good games Gin, get on with it. Although with X you already have a great entry in the series.
