Yes, there are similarities, but the game is also similar to .hack//infection, Phantasy Star Online, and many other games that came out prior to 12.

It's funny how 12 "taught" Xenoblade through ideas that have been used numerous times before, but Xenoblade can't teach FF because they are different series. 

Did you even play those games ?!

Unlike Xenoblade you can actually continuously chain normal attacks in realtime in those games ... 

The combat in Xenoblade straight up reminded me of FF XII. Had realtime movement in combat but didn't have the action based combat like a true or pseudo ARPG would such as Kingdom Hearts ...

Yes, but we aren't talking about the combat if you read the other comment I was responding to. And no, the combat is absolutely nothing like XII. 

Also Xenoblade's combat is just as close to those games as it is XII's.

What could Xenoblade possibly teach Final Fantasy? It was FF 12 that taught Xenoblade in the first place.

Couldn't be anymore right ...


I agree too, FFXII taugh Xenoblade what not to do ;P

You could not be more right.

I just happen to be in those warz. I think the guy just dropped it once I proved he hadn't played Xenoblade. Wish the same could be said for Fatslob over there. 

He makes it painfully obvious himself he's never played the game. Or absolutely payed no attention to it while he was playing whatsoever.

Well both are great series' and both could teach the other series a few things. Xenoblade could teach FF about the voice acting, the sense of scale, some story pointers and combat tips, whilst FF could teach Xenoblade how to have a useful in-game currency, better towns/NPC's and also a coherent feel to the game.

Saying "one should have this" or "one should have that" is fine, but both games can improve and be even more awesome than they already are if they do this.

I believe it said from the series, not just one game. And yeah I have and I didn't like it, but there's still some good features from that game which could be carried over.

XIII was a series. Difference of opinions on whether there was anything "good" to take away from it too.

Final Fantasy has been a dissappointing series since 10.

There is a lot it could learn from Xenoblade:
1. Adequate game pacing, Xenoblade has fantastic game pacing in an open world, Final Fantasy's linear worlds can't even seem to match that.
2. Side quests and stories, Final Fantasy lacks this, but Xenoblade has stuff to do all over the place in abundance.
3. Towns, FF12 had big empty fields with blocks representing masquerading as towns, FF13 didn't have them at all. This is something Xenoblade does way way way better.
4. A good battle system, Final Fantasy hasn't had one of these since 10, Xenoblade has the best in the industry.
5. A good story. Again, none since FF10. Xenoblade wasn't even meant to be a story focused game, but it demolishes FF12 and all those FF13s.

What Xeboblade could use from Final Fantasy is its fanbase. Final Fantasy has a huge fanbase of people who are infinitely forgiving of all the crappy entries in the series for the last 15 years. Xenoblade needs a marketing campaign to give it the exposure it deserves.

The only misstep by FF is FFXIII. FFXII and FFXIV:ARR are great games.
