This post is laughable. Those are decent games that are flawed. Xenoblade 2 is a FANTASTIC game that has flaws. Big difference bigtakilla.
*sorry for triple post, I replied before reading whole thread ðŸ˜¶*
The difference being decent/fantastic by your standards?
Final Fantasy XIII had an auto battle system that ruined it, all other issues aside.
Metroid Other M I cannot speak for, but it is one of the weakeat links from what I hear.
Paper Mario Color Splash was ok, but a shell of what it should have been.
DmC was a decent hack and slash, but should have been a new IP instead of a unwanted reboot.
Meanwhile Xenoblade 2 had a deep battle system, stayed true to the franchise it belonged to, had a story that really pulls you in once it starts going, fantastic character development by anyone's standards, and a ton of interesting content.
Xenoblade is in a completely different league than those games, period. If you do not like it, it does not take away from the quality of the game.
Example I am not a fan of GTA5, yet I can still acknowledge that it is one of the best games released during its time. I guess some people cannot see quality beyond their own personal taste. Does not change the facts though.
