    I guess there are two kind of FF people, those that think that VI and IX are best and those that think that VII is best and IX and VI are only good. I'm in the VII boat, but we all agree that FF's post X are shit.

    You may not remember but already X was shitty game due to how linear everything was. FFXIII was basically sequel to design on FFX. Only difference was that it didn't have a map like FFXIII so people didn't notice it that much.

    Only thing it rescued it was battle system

    Late to the party. When was the last time a remake just updated the presentation of a game, anyway?

    FF X might be linear, but the storyline atleast is 50 hours long.

    FFXIII takes about 30-40 hours just to get to Pulse which is where linearity finally goes away a bit. To finish game you are looking at 60-70 hours. I did Pulse stuff and finished in ~90 hours but didn't finish all in Pulse.

    i did not add side stuff, if you add side stuff to FF X, than the game is easily 150 hours, FF X is probably the longest FF.

    What side stuff ? Getting celestial weapons ? few more Aeons ? dark aeons ? Blitzball league? Grinding stats to 255 ? I did all of that in less that 100h (i think it was like 95h).

    In therm of side content FFX isn't really any much bigger than FFIX or FFVIII which had shitload of sidecontent both in main story and out of it. where FFX side content was basically just near the end so you had to deal first with very linear story then you could go back and do something else.

    Abe's World "New N' Tasty" is a pretty good, recent example of a remake done right. Preserving everything people loved about the original, updating it with new technology and adding subtle new features while still preserving the old feel whole-heartedly.

    Yeah, I was going to mention that one too. Sadly a lot of remakes tend to go full retard.

    His co-workers are just as much to blame as he is for not doing an intervention. Someone needs to sit him down and explain to him that his waifu isn't real.

    FF X might be linear, but the storyline atleast is 50 hours long, i.e. the story is dumb and long.

  15. I don't think I could deal with ATB again at my age. But why do they have to make new FF games? Can't they design a new franchise?

    From what I've seen FFXV plays wholly different than any other FF game. It's like a strange mix of MMO and turn-based action.

    And why make a new franchise for the game you're making when you can just slap the FF name on and make millions that way?

    They could, but Lightning would feel a bit out of place in a entirely new franchise.

  18. Gothic and Witcher 2 have okay combat, but I hate MMO combat. MMO combat is *not* a selling point.

    Adding to that, you can skip the cutscenes in XIII. Not so much in X which makes a big chunk of the time to beat it.

    Honestly, they're about the same size. Imo XIII is a bit bigger/takes longer to completly beat. X has the more annoying (but way more charming and creative) end game stuff as well.
