if ffxiii would have been pulse only people would have loved it and compared it to ffx. but because of the cocoon part a lot of people hate it. to me ffxiii is over all better than ffx allthough i didn't like a lot of the cocoon chapters as well.

aaaahhhahahaahahahano

Just no. 

FFX was linear, yes, but it had side content, exploration, minigames, secrets, and blitzball.  FFXIII might have well have been on rails for all the freedom it gave you.  While yes, Gran Pulse had a bit of exploration, it was still basically a flower, 90% of it linear, one spot that kinda branches out,t hen back to the stamen which is linear. 

Yeah, absolutely nothing like the Calm Lands at all.

My favorite Final Fantasy.

X, on the other hand, gets hated for a few different reasons, such as the lack of a world map, terrible voice acting, and annoying characters.  All valid reasons to criticise, but not nearly as bad as 'broken gameplay' or poorly told story".  Take Wakka for example, one of the most hated characters in all of gaming actually had one of the deepest and most nuanced character arcs ever.  People hated Squall for the same reasons, started out closeminded, annoying, and generally unlikeable, only to basically turn everything around as the plot progressed.  Squall was SUPPOSED to be hated at first.  Wakka and Tidus were SUPPOSED To be hated.  IT's called character development.

Finally, SOMEONE gets it.



Best game ever. I don't know why people said that ff went downhill after X. I love ff XII but the characters weren't as good as other characters form the franchise ( With the exception of Fran and Balthier)

thanks!  I don't think that should warrant a tears of joy applause man, but yeah!  I don't know why people hate squall right through to the end, same with other 'annoying' characters.  

Vaan and Penelo had a completely different reason for being boring.  They were meant as player analogues.  I see no reason they couldn't have been better characters, but they were designed as outsiders to the main conflict, not movers and shakers.

I quite liked Squall, and found him very relatable.
