    Finally, had been waiting for these for a while and I always felt like the low resolution didn't do the art assets justice.

    Can someone who knows the series tell me the order these are supposed to be played in? I can assume XIII goes before XII-2, but Lightning Returns throws me off.

    FXIII, XIII-2 then Lightning returns.

    XIII was one of those games I remember playing and, being a casual FF fan, I adored it. But everyone else seemed to strongly dislike it. Thing is, I played it before I listened to all the criticism, and I just don't know if I'll play it the same way or if it'll ruin my opinion on it.

    Oh well. Time to grind for stats!

    I would love if FF13 went GWG.

    Honest question. Is XIII - 2 and Lightning returns worth it? I only have 13.

    IMO XIII-2 is worth it. I think Lightning Returns kind of went off the deep end and sucked pretty hard

    I can't speak to Lightning Returns, but I enjoyed 13-2 more than 13. You've always got two or three options for where to go next (but you'll end up doing everything), there are actual towns with actual people to talk to, and the gameplay is refined over 13's. And the dungeons have actual forking paths, rather than just being big corridors.

    If you played through 13 and liked it, you'll have a great time with 13-2.

    Amazing Trilogy. I fell in love with Lightning. But there isn't a single RPG on Xbox 360 that can come slightly close to Lost Odyssey. Ending was deeper than real to me. This game will forever stay in my heart. That game was one of the reason on why I got a Xbox 360 in the first place, and why I never regretted it.
    Case Closed so don't debate it.

    Why do people think Square is going to fold? Xbox is only getting 4 of their upcoming games, but that doesn't mean much to a major player in Japan and on PS4. Plus Kingdom Hearts III is likely going to be a best seller in 2019.

    XIII-2 is fantastic. Lightning Returns on the other hand.... didn't like it nearly as much as XIII or XIII-2 (didn't finish it). Weakest of the bunch IMO.
    Didn't like the concept of timed events, no parties (only Lightning) and I remember some insane difficulty in the first few hours of the game. Basically had to use a guide to move on. Never needed a guide for the first two games.

    Might be worth it if you really care about the whole story.
