Okay, Let's Just Pretend Lightning Returns Doesn't Exist

I've decided to be completely indifferent for the time being, and optimistic for the future. In all honesty, it's really the only way I can remain sane.

Right now, here's my suggestion for all you hardcore Final Fantasy fans who feel slighted (and maybe even downright abused) at the announcement of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the game that focuses more on action and institutes what sounds like a ridiculous time clock:

Just pretend it isn't there. Seriously. Let's not complain because quite clearly, that doesn't do anything. Square Enix doesn't listen and worse, they have no intention of listening, so why get a hernia over something we can't change? Besides, let's not forget that this is the "Final Chapter" in the Lightning Saga, so they can't do this to us again. At the very least, they have to start over the next generation with Final Fantasy XV. Right? Speaking of which, we should probably not put much faith in Versus XIII, either. Too much of a leap of a faith.

With a new generation comes fresh hope. We put the past generation behind us, try to forget the mistakes game makers have made, and look to the future. Many designers have reinvented themselves with new hardware, and there has to be a chance for Square Enix down the road. I'm going to cling to that. Lightning Returns might turn out great, I don't know. But for now, I'm just going to pretend it's not there...and I suggest you do the same if you're really upset.

I have to say, of all the FF's, X-2 was the hardest for me to accept because of the overbearing femme appeal of it all. Granted, it may do some nice game play things, but I'm sure a Barbie game could, too, but it doesn't mean I'll want to play it =)

LOL @ FFX-2 being an "Active time turn based" battle system. >.< A term just now invented by World, though the concept was first achieved through FFXIII.

I think part of the problem here is that some people just don't know what they're looking at.

FFX-2 is one of the best games in the franchise. Objectively, I feel comfortable saying that you are truly missing out by skipping that game. So addictive, so fun. Cheesy, yes, almost painfully so at times, but there are some touching, genuine moments as well.

Though not quite the RPG everyone expected, it seems a little harsh to pretend the game doesn't exist. With an open world, stealth and perhaps traversal mechanics, and an action oriented battle system, I think it's at least interesting enough to warrant further information. Of course I'd much prefer Versus info, but I have the hunch that it's shaping up to be FFXV and possibly next-gen.

So, I guess since everyone wants to forget the game, when actual gameplay is presented this site won't cover it, right? I'm sure...When any of these elements are found in other games it makes them interesting (save the winding clock, though I think the extremity of the time phobia displayed here is a little ridiculous), but in a FF spinoff, shield your eyes! Run away! Be true fans of Final Fantasy that immediately hates anything SE produces! Hope on Versus until the next baseless rumor emerges and then quickly abandon it!

I will probably wait for this FF to go down. This year it's like 2 months after a game comes out it goes to $30 or less. Yeah, I got burned waaaayyyyyyyy too much this year.

On a separate but related issue: When the h^ll is Final Fantasy X HD coming out?! It was due around or near the Vita's launch and there just remains a TBA slot on every board. I've got a few FFs on my Vita but this is one I never finished on the PS2 and the Vita plus PSP are awesome for them long RPGs. Shut down the system for a few hours and come right back where you were in the game. No waiting. (I love my Vita BTW.)

It's hard to pretend that this game doesn't exist when it's a game that is going to delay FFvsXIII even further into non-existence for this gen. If FFvsXIII were to release before, or around it's time, then maybe.

And yes, although it's too strong of a word, it just seems like they are abusing the fans. They're continuosly doing things that are the opposite of what the fans want to see. I'm not the one that should wish SE a bad omen, but I do still have a glimmer of hope that someday all this nonsense will stop.

It's difficult to ignore multiple knives to the heart. The problem here seems to be that people want to wait and find out of it's a "good game in it's own right."

Yeah, consumers don't want that from FF.

But you're right, there is no point at all in shouting at the deaf, gesticulating in front of the blind, or asking for answers from the dumb.

This is pretty much the approach I've taken for a little while now. I was really angry with XIII. I was sorta disappointed with XIII-2. Now, I just can't work up the energy to be upset at all. S-E has taken everything away from me, even my ability to be mad on the Internet. I just don't care any more, not about this, not about Versus, not even about XV.

Majoras was so awesome! As long as you played the song on the ocarina that slowed time down, time never became a problem.
I also hate time on games but there was something about Majoras that I really enjoyed. There was much more sidequests that OoT and the system where certain events are triggered at different times worked well.

I hear ya gunblade, but you shouldn't have any significant time limits in an RPG and (in my opinion) shouldn't have to do anything special to thwart your game restarting every few minutes so you have to do things over and over.

Square Enix,

Remove the Final Fantasy title from ALL of your games. You're just driving away more and more fans.

Oh, and feel free to sell the rights and Final Fantasy name, brand and logo to Mistwalker Studios. They're the only ones who can bring the franchise back to standard.

Feel free to make more games, just not anymore Final Fantasy games as you clearly have no idea what you're doing with that franchise anymore and clearly don't care about the fans anymore.

Yours sincerely,

So... you're not going to report on it?

Either way, it probably is the best way to go about it for you guys. I'll just pretend it's another low profile title that I have a passing interest in.

And I hope you realise that even if FFXV does bring back the correct feeling of nostalgia that you're all looking for, S-E is just going to it with one sequel or spin-off after another. They've already announced that they want to follow in the vein of CoD and AC, keeping it the public spotlight with yearly releases, and besides that, history dictates it. Since FFX they've expanded every entry. First with X-2, then countless expansion packs for XI, if you choose to count it. The Ivalice Alliance ties into FFXII and now the Fabula Nova Crystallis and FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. It's inevitable.

A fine suggestion, Ben. Reading Final Fantasy news these days is like watching a huge slow-motion train wreck.

As I have said before, I cannot take this game as the true sequel to Final Fantasy XIII-2. It feels like what Crisis Core was to Final Fantasy VII a spin off.

This is not an RPG, I know many of you have joked about the previous 2 being a departure but this one really is. this sounds more like Metal Gear. Infact, I feel the same way about this title as I do with Rising, if it was a separate game not related to my favourite franchise, it be happy but as the context is so removed from the previous titles I just cannot enjoy it. While Rising seems too over the top for Metal Gear at least this title seems like it can fit no matter how wild it gets after the convoluted mess of XIII-2.

What hurts me the most is that they haven't even kept the menus in, even Crisis Core had a menu setting. Applying moves to the face buttons makes it a straight up action game in my book. If this Final Fantasy XIII-3 I'd be fine, but as it's the conclusion of Final Fantasy XIII I want it to be done right in a form of an RPG.

I feel like telling S-E like what Obi-Wan from the original Star Wars does when their vehicle is stopped by two soldiers "This is not the game we're looking for" S-E mindlessly repeats "Go back and try again."

On another note, no Versus, no Type-0, No FFX HD remake... Other than this spin off we got nothing from S-E for the 25th Anniversary, a real let down. Still I guess I want to see the trailer for this spin off tomorrow...

Thats the problem, companies know they can abuse their audience and get away with it. We should never forget what these companies do, its their track record. Each customer should always look at a companies previous iterations to make their decisions when purchasing their next iteration.

Square Enix has officially used final fantasy as a cash cow, games made cheap and without innovation. Like i said I will move on from final fantasy, will let the new generation of fans take the torch. I imagine i am not alone in my opinion.

I think you're right. Their plans of using the Final Fantasy name for annualization success is pretty evident now. The only way to stop them is to show them that it won't work. That's going to be hard if there's a decent amount of "new" fans over the "old" fans whom are going to support it.

It show that they only need to sell a few to keep at it, probably because the investment that goes into it is minimal. Can you just imagine the investment Call of Duty developers puts in versus the sales they get? I mean that's like overkill success. SE is trying for that overkill success, but at best they're only going for minimum if it's going to be a consistent 2million and below.

Here's what happened:

SE Overlord: "We gotta finish the main story for XIII and all we have are a few more scraps from the cutting room floor of the past two games."

Underling: "Well, since the battle system in Versus is looking great and we can't show that game let's just steal it and dumb it down, remove any possibility of party members, then then add a clock to the game so they won't be focused on the brief story but be worried about doing fetch quests that add time to the clock instead. That should eat up 50 hours."

If they really did "steal" the battle system for FFvsXIII, that would be one of the biggest shame, ever. It's like they're treating FFvsXIII as a resource rather than a game that deserves much more recognition than it currently does. That's just disgusting and I hope that's not the case.

I had fun playing FF13-2, therefore I will buy this game day one. I've enjoyed the first two games and that's all I care. Sure it's not a great "Final Fantasy" game, but it's still a good game and I'm playing it as that. Plus after that ending that almost ruined the entire game, I need a sequel.

You can't end it like that. Seriously, what was the point of even playing the game with an ending like that. It's like mass effect 3.

Oh I'm not looking foward about any particular square release. I'm enthusiastic about major Sony titles like the last of us or Beyond 2 souls - or other nearer releases like AC3 - games made by developers that haven't underwhelmed most of their fans recently. I'll give them attention once I hear something great about their games either close to or once they're released.

I'm not giving into hype for a company that has abused my ff fan status twice.

This whole ordeal makes me remember FFX when tidus laughed really loud to try and make himself feel better. Then he couldnt laugh anymore because he had to face the truth. SE please stop laughing because your taking my favorite game series and turning it into a money-wh0re. They need to realize that the fans are the Zack to the clouds and if they don't carry on the FF legacy it'll die and be forgotten. I only played MGS4 for a few hours so i cant have a real opinion on it however that trailer looks awesome and snake still looks like a box hiding badass so ill probably pick it up.

Good advice. I'll be playing FF VII again in the next month or two, possibly between a Vita and PS3, and that's how I choose to experience Square games.
