I've been a premium member for a few years, recently decided to cut costs, now I'm a freeloader user D:

There have been some Final Fantasy trailer that comes up between videos. The trailer is for Final Fantasy 13, lightning returns. I must say, not only is the music annoying, but that looks like the most boring game ever. I can't even imagine sitting through 80 hours + of seeing the same exact animations.

I played RPGs during my teen years. Now that I'm older, F*** that.

the most boring game ever is probably the arcade ping pong.


i'm pre-ordering FFXIII:LR soon... when I get my pay xD... so broke right now. So I can get the pre-order bonus (which is the steelbook cover).


I can still appreciate how much effort they've put into making that game... the mechanics and everything.

If you're referring to the game that was known colloquially as "Pong".I remember sitting in a tavern ,( sometime in the 70's ),when that game never saw even a seconds rest from the local patrons.Granted alcohol and herb might have had a lot to do with it.

I've always disliked RPGs for two reasons. 1. They usually take far more time and dedication than I'm willing to give to a single game and 2. This doesn't apply to all of them, but I dislike battle systems which require you to click a button and then watch a preset animation (mostly why I could never get into Pokemon). Although I'm not a big fan of Final Fantasy I'm sure my friend will be picking up the special edition of this game. He got every edition bar one of FF XIII Part 2 and completed it to 100% and Lightning is his favourite character so he should enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, I love fantasy and melee combat (especially fighting games) just not the way it's carried out in Final Fantasy.

I understand that the site generates revenue from adverts, and is all-in-all for the greater good.

Anyway. I haven't play a FF game since X, (X-2 does not exist, it was a mass hallucination) but with all the hype of XIII/LR, I admit I'm curious.

Ads dunna bother me.

I'll pass on LR:XIII. I got through about half of XIII, and it was kind of painful - the battle system was rather shallow and often felt more like figuring out a puzzle than an RPG. I also don't like how they keep shilling Lightning as a character - I get that she's popular in Japan (or so I've heard), but she seems pretty boring to me.

Got XIV to keep me busy anyway.

So the game is called Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns?

WTF? The game even has a lame name. And all the money people shell out to buy it? LMAO...

Other way around (it's Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII), but yeah.

The XIII saga hasn't done so well, and it shows. Aside from the needlessly complicated backstory, setting, and plot, the combat (or at least what I played of it back in XIII) felt shallow. Each successive title has sold fewer and fewer units.

I just wish the ads would be muted if the video is muted, then I could run the video in the background and do other stuff and still get ads served.

So, is this thread complaining about ads, or FF XIII:LR? Because it seems to focus more on Final Fantasy to me. Honestly, if you're that opposed to FF, don't play it. A lot of people don't find the games boring. I personally loved FFIX and FFIV. I might take you more seriously if you give valid reasons for why you think the FF games are boring, but all you're doing is bashing on them. Therefore, your opinion doesn't matter.

Would be better if the game was called "Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Strikes Twice".

I wonder what's actually different this time around.

while i don't have anything against ff: lightning returns, that ad IS overplayed

-the volume is louder than the anime I'm watching so i gotta turn it down each time it pops up

-there's no "skip ad" box after 5 seconds , like some other ads so like 30 secs wasted every time it's played

i played ff XIII and stopped in the middle cause it was kinda boring to me and i liked battle systems of ff i-x better than whatever that system was.... it looks good graphics-wise w/ the action.... my brother is also getting it.

FYI: Nobody's opinion matters. FF games are boring because you have to fight a million random fights. Also, each fight takes a long time. Eye candy doesn't make a fight more or less interesting. If 1 random fight (w/ lots of eye candy) takes you 10 minutes. One still wasted 10 minutes of your life on a random fight. Boss fights are one thing, but the random fights should be quick. Then, there's the basic Turn-Based battle system. I know they all don't use it, but too many FF games do use it. The TB battle system is ancient and should be buried like the dinosaurs. Attack, Item, Heal, Repeat, boring...
