I don't think people really get this, but they look younger and are shorter, so we automatically assume they're pedo's.

Not to mention, the legal age for sex over there is 14.

435

How old would you put her?

She's 43.

420

She's 12.


Anyways, I actually called this.

It was more along the line of a joke, but it hilariously came true.

linear game, not towns, no exploration, easy combat system, annoying characters. should I go on? FF13 and 13-2 and by far the worst FF title ever made. that is just my opinion.
look at FF10 or FF7 or FF8 those games are amazing, everything about them is great. unlike 13 and 13-2. the only good thing about 13 and 13-2 is the graphics and that is it. If I want to look at some nice cool graphics and good effects I would go to a gallery.

Being the worst Final Fantasy isn't saying much considering the series is largely made up of above average games. XIII and XIII-2 are disappointing Final Fantasy titles, but decent games in their own right.

Besides, Final Fantasy XIII-2 has more exploration and is less linear than Final Fantasy X. Its "towns" are also structured similarly to X's.

Oh, I know this. But I was just explaining what I 'think' he was going on about.

The top one looks more realistic of what I'd expect of a 17/18 year old, maybe as old as 21.

Bottom one, looks like a painted up Asian prostitute with implants.

I tried to find a better picture of Tifa that wasn't old cartoony FFVIII art or just face shot.

Buy yeah as for Serah Farron (top girl) according to the wiki data in the first game she was 18 and in the second game she is 21. She stands at 154cm (5'5"). So perhaps this is "normal" for some Asian countries but the overall character design I feel is the developers pandering to the ever annoying otaku crowd and the popularity of cheesy pop groups such as AKB48.

Serah seems pretty normal for a woman age 18-21 regardless of race or ethnicity. Well, about as normal as a stylized character model can get.

Considering the face of that Tifa looks like that of a chubby toddler experiencing an allergic reaction, I'm assuming your distinction between 'child' and 'women' was made solely on bust size, which seems a bit.. silly. It's not my favorite character design by any means, but she looks like a young adult woman.

So on one side you have a typical J-RPG, one which stays true to turn-based combat (the manly way to fight) and is driven by navigating through MENUS, followed with the standard unlikable characters (kids/teens who first need to figure out their goddamn gender, wear less paint-bucket costumes with too many belts and stop swinging car-sized swords around), jack-all story, extremely linear gameplay and mercilessly padded-out lengths which stretch 10 hours of content over 100 hours.

And on the other side you have an excellent game that is actually driven by an equally excellent story, with well-developed characters, decent combat, where you actually feel part of the story and can take control of the flow of the game.

Why would anyone want to mix the above?

Having your entire crew wanting to sex you up is not taking control of the flow of a game. It is a bad date simulator.
