I haven't played an FF game since VII. If you had to pick one to play what would it be. (preferably current gen if thats even possible).
IX or X
Does Lost Odyssey count?
If you want current-gen... could you wait until FFXV?
I guess, though, if you really want current-gen and not online, then XIII and XIII-2 are your only options.
XIII isn't terrible, but there is a 20 hour tutorial, which is where most of the complaints come from. The reviews were favorable on this one.
XIII-2 is a little better, but tends to go in the opposite direction. It's more open, but this makes things too disconnected as well. It's a sequel, but there is some background, so you're not completely lost if you were to pick this one up.
Usually XII is kind of thrown in there too, but this was for the PS2. It is pretty much offline-FFXI using FFX characters. I found most of the game enjoyable for a while, but I thought the quality dropped significantly near the end.
This looks more like a crappy action adventure game than an RPG, I'll pass. SE hasn't been able to release a decent FF game since 10 and this looks like it'll be the worst attempt yet.
Looks to me like a Kingdom Hearts gameplay style.
After Versus was announced years ago, all I ever remember hearing was Versus = FF + KH. Edited, Jun 11th 2013 5:23pm by xypin
