Just play the game.
Bruh you know it's 50% playing and 50% talking about it!
Curiously, I'm playing this game right now. It appeared to have some of the best ideas and subversions of the Final Fantasy series, but the delivery falls flat on its face.
The bold makes it sound like the game is the black sheep of the series that probably won't be revisited. This CoD comparison is weird - does the game feel like an FPS but the shooting is replaced with RPG battles?

FF13 is a good game but it's not a good Final Fantasy game. Graphics were great, no denying that but the characters, story, leveling and combat all for me were dumbed down and some parts just nonsense. Pathing was linear for nearly all the game, lack of choice over builds, main party member dying = game over, press X to get abilities, press X to attack with best stuff. All flash no substance battle system.
FF13 is the reason I'm scared of the 'remake' and how dumbed down it will be.
I will agree with you on the FF7 remake - from what I can see it seems significantly more streamlined than the original game. I have a feeling it's going to be a case of going from set piece to set piece and will make people go: "Ah yeah we're getting to this part now." I do have hope that they're making it a very large open world more similar to FFXV, though.
Honestly, I've only played through Final Fantasy XIII twice but I'd still consider it one of the better Final Fantasy games... loved the story, the characters, the flashy battle system, and the music is top notch.
How does it compare to other FF games to you?
