I don't doubt that the new one is an improvement, but KH2 was an improvement over kh1 and that game sucked too.
That isn't a controversial opinion.

While there's no doubt it's the hardest Zelda game, Adventure of Link is not as difficult as everybody says.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

The so called "non-linear" segment in FFXIII was probably the worst part of the game.

Enix was pretty cool at one time too....

I'm not really a fan of SE, but I agree.

The one thing that does annoy me with SE is their current status with Final Fantasy.

I'm not a fan of FF but it annoys me in general when it feels as if the developers purposely ignore the fans. That's what it seems like SE is doing with FF.

Non-linear, but still nothing to do. If there's not going to be anything to do, might as well keep it linear, really.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

honestly sometimes I think developers confuse non-linear gaming with just being lazy and having everything be vague boring and general enough so it will all fit together eventually. Totally unrelated, does anybody here know that game Final Fantasy X-2?

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I tried playing it for two hours before I finally succumbed to the beast within. My memory of the proceedings are unclear but when I came to the Playstation was a fine black powder.

(lol don't use it). Obviously the game'll play for you if you hit "auto battle". -__- If you want it to be more challenging, select the abilities for yourself. The pacing wasn't horrible; I don't know what you're talking about. The story is one of the best parts of the game. They're regular people who have been branded outcasts. They all have problems of their own, and we see this (Sazh's depression; Vanille's bubbly, cheerful demeanor masks her inner sadness) throughout the story. I also can't take your criticism seriously, since you "couldn't even finish it".

Right, because chocobo riding, tons of secret areas, treasures and 64 missions is nothing to do.

Hey, hey, I liked the game, but I didn't enjoy the open areas.

I think if any game is bad enough to make me stop playing, it is a failure as a game.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

It is not controversial opinion that the game is pretty mediocre. It's not a horrible, face-clawing game by any means.

I did like the game (played it twice), there's the option to disable the auto-battle from showing up at all. That shouldn't be a problem. Using auto-battle and then complaining is like willingly cutting yourself and complaining that it hurts and that someone is making you do it.

It wasn't the best jrpg ever. It was an alright game that could've used a lot of improvements.

Of course, the only sizable defense one could bring up or the sake of FF13 is the melodramatic (stupid) cut scenes ....because why else would you play FF? For a good RPG gaming experience? Heavens no.



"Moms are tough."

I actually did quit hitting auto-battle after a while and the game still sucks. I only mentioned it in my previous posts just because I find it hilarious that the feature exists in a game that -plays it self before the player even starts using auto battle-. The game rewarded nothing but mindless offense regardless of if you were using auto-battle or not. There was almost no reason to ever do anything else but attack.

But regardless, your defense on this subject brings me to a certain thing about gamer logic that makes very little sense.
That is the act of criticizing another player for using an option that the game makes readily available for you as a means to finish it. It's not like using auto-battle is cheating, nor is the game even remotely "challenging" without the use of it.

Well, at least it wasn't for me.

FF13 is the product of what fans have allowed modern day square to become; a company that sells their product by using things like visuals and "deep story telling" to excuse uninspired and shoddy game design. I played the game for hours and I still wasn't having fun. So why the hell would I -logically- finish it?

Oh, but my opinion on a game is invalid because I didn't play the ENTIRE thing. Despite playing it enough to get a feel for the game design and decide if I liked it.....no, had to see the credits roll for my opinion to count. Right.

lol "I don't take you seriously, here's my response to you!"

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

Story was pretty deep in that game. those characters had some of the most interesting, deep personalities out there. In my opinion anyway. It really was a treat to get to witness.

Hey, giving birth is like getting kicked in the nuts repeatedly for like, an hour, so they have to be.

I remember that joke from Friends, Chandler tells a woman who has about to give birth "Hey, you know, what would be more painful, giving birth or getting kicked in the nuts? I mean, it's funny because noone will ever experience both pains so there's not an answer..."

On topic: I've only cleared one mission in Halo 2, and it's the only part in the game and entire series I enjoyed playing.

Funny, I used to watch that show all the time, and I don't remember that. I'm sure i've heard it before though.

Anyways, Halo 2 had the best campaign out of the 5 games. Reach being a close second.

Eh, I'd place CE above Reach, but otherwise I'd agree.



-Nier seems a bit of a mixed bag so far. Nothing outstanding but still interesting.

-The Clawshots are the most overrated item in Zelda.

-Alternatively, the Stepladder is the most underrated.

-Allowing bosses to heal during battle is incredibly cheap, especially if they're strong.

Fire Emblem should never have made the jump to 3D. The 2D sprites were wonderful.
