    Must have been some pretty stupid users if they thought FFXIII was one of the best games of the year. It wasn’t even one of the best games of the day it was released.

    @5, for selling >500k in Japan… I wonder what the second hand market is like in Japan and how clogged are the second hand shelves with this shitty shitty game?

    FF XIII was mediocre nonsense. One of the best games of the year my arse.

    Should’ve known it was the Japs who were voting for this…

    FFXIII remains one the most epic spectacles I have ever seen.

    As a game however, its full of hateful, banal sugary characters, a lame disappearing-up-its-own-ass plot and is a ‘corridor RPG’ with a battle system that can be so badly abused that you may as well let the AI do all the work for you.

    Oh wait…

    @2: You haven’t played FFXIII if you haven’t killed a Long Gui.
    Unlike most battles it actually requires some strategy…

    But the story… For the love of god, stop it, Japanese. Devil May Cry 3, Bayonetta and FFXIII all have basically SAME DAMN STORY. It doesn’t matter if you call Him Jubeleus, or Orphan, or whatever. It’s same damn story.
    But one have to agree that FFXIII looks stunning (only on PS3 though). It’s just a shame that such great graphics is wasted on such stupid, cliched story.
    At least they have Long Gui.
