    Each installment improved on the last but it was a disappointment and a lot of potential was squandered.

    I've yet to play them, & am trying to keep an open mind about them, so when/if I do ever play them I can go in giving the games a chance on their own merits & not what 95% of FF fans say.

    Meh. They weren't horrible but they weren't that great either. My complaint was mostly with the characters. I didn't connect with pretty much any of them. I wasn't invested in their cause to save whatever. It's hard to like a game if you can't really relate and want to save whatever.

    XIII was great in places and terrible in others and suffered from incredible "on-rails-syndrome" and a story that largely relied on you reading primers to understand.

    XIII-2 was pretty darn decent aside from the ending, and fixed the majority of XIIIs issues.

    LR was okay. I'm not a huge fan of Lightning as a character so this really didn't have any gravitas with me.

    Boring. I got as far as the first boss fight on the game and didn't feel compel to play it any further than that, and IMO the worst thing a game can do is bore the ever loving crap out of you. This game also suffers from the creators trying way too hard to recreate the success of FFVII and trying to make Lightning their new poster child. You can't plan to make that kind of stuff happen, it just does. I doubt anyone on the FFVII development team thought it was going to be the Final Fantasy game for which all future Final Fantasy games are judged. The stars just happen to align that year. Chill, Square. Give Lightning a break for 20 years the poor girl been through enough.

    Great music, some of the best boss themes in the series.

    Seeing how I think Final Fantasy I is worse in comparison
    and II
    and III
    and IV
    and V
    and VI
    and VIII
    and IX
    and X
    and XII

    It is ranked very high on my list.

    You think XIII is better than pretty much every entry but VII? I... What? Did we play the same series?

    Best music in the series in my opinion, and I love the battle system. It is also pretty to look at.

    The story and characters though, they were terrible.

    Voted the meh option. I have still yet to play XIII-3 (but I intend to). The only thing that I loved was the soundtrack for the two games I played. Everything else was very hit and miss for me. I liked them better when they first released, but the more I thought about the games the more I thought they were underwhelming.

    I've only played the first one but I liked it fine. Was it the best game ever? No. But I still had fun
