If I took Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and inserted a "Press <random button> to continue" every 2-3 minutes I would have about the same level of gameplay thats in Final Fantasy 13, so they should just stop pretending its a video game and just give us the FMV all nicely strung together.
Interesting views. I agree with you to an extent. I wouldn't want them to stop making games, but making more movies would perhaps be interesting.

*sigh* that's what i enjoyed about FF6. No real "main guy" and every character brought a unique strategy to the battlefield. I still never took the time to master Gau, that kid's techniques were so random *Into the veldt* lol
Ew, you Selphie lover! lol. FF6 was definitely interesting. There really was no main character like you said and everyone brought something interesting to the table and it didn't feel like any one particular person was a filler character.
I loved Locke Cole though
imo, Americans took over RPGs since PS2 era.
Japanese need to focus on storyline and less on graphics. Since they developed FF13, just use that same engine or whatever and now work on a Final Fantasy with a story and game play that isn't linear.
