    Still have to try FFXIII, but after reading things like these, I'm pretty sure it won't even come near to the super-awesomeness FF7 was [​IMG]

    Also, please no *-2 anymore. I believe X-2 was one of the worst FFs EVER and that it shouldn't even have existed, as FFs SHOULD HAVE NO SEQUELS. Oh Sakaguchi, how dearly we miss you [​IMG]

    The After Years did good but no other sequels should ever be made.

    FFXIII characters are very human and likable, I love the story and it means that people don't call bullshit about the complete absurdity of the character design (that said my favourite character in FFVII is Red XIII)

    As for a sequel, its certainly very possible and would probably be done well especially if it uses the same engine (unlike X-2) but I'd rather they worked on FFXV and a whole new story.

    I enjoyed FFX-2 [​IMG]
    The ATB was something good comparing it to XII 'ATB' system.

    XII was a terrible abomination which shouldn't EVER have been marketed under the name "Final Fantasy".

    And yet, still better than XIII.

    I doubt they will do a sequel. There's too much wrong with XIII to warrant a sequel. Plus, they still have like 2 spin-offs yet to be released. Versus and Agito.

    I admit they did do some things wrong but they still did things right as well. I still think its a good game
    and wouldn't mind seeing more of this

    I'd love to see a direct sequel, but maybe that's just me! [​IMG]
    Just beacause X-2 became a girl power shit game (in some peoples oppinions) doesn't mean that XIII-2 would...

    I can see it now.
    Lightning getting a haircut and a different personality.
    Vanille being the same.
    Then another person coming into the scene.

    Add in some J-Pop and you have FFXIII-2!

    it would be a good idea as raven said to use the remaining graphics and all tht they deleted from this game
    it is not true tht they will do the same mistake again with ffx-2 as they got more criticisms than praise hence the next part would be better if not equal
    No game is ever gonna come close to ff7 cuz of the chars, story, direction... if u didnt appreciate these elements, u would hate the game (as many do due to fanboyism rather than the prev mentioned reason)
    its gonna be more like a title which will expand the sales and wantings of the fans rather than giving the game a completion or more flavor like crisis core or advent children (movie)
