    Most games are made to make money but it's not the only goal the creators have. FFX-2 was only made to make money. Aside from a pretty decent battle system it had no redeeming qualities really. It was just made so they could reuse the assets they made for FFX and pump out a game they knew would sell a few million copies with the least amount of effort they could put into it.

    It's the literal definition of a cash grab.

    Excellent battle system aside, I think FFX-2 also doesn't get a lot of praise - and it should - for its non-linear and more choice-based quests and story options. My particular favourite is where you have to figure out who ruined the Mi'hen Highroad shop and Rin has you investigating, and there's a whole bunch of different outcomes depending on what evidence you choose to submit.

    X-2 is indeed but on the other hand IX played it very safe and in a sense it feels as if Square was just trying to cater to the nostalgia of fans of the series. Personally I don't think it worked and instead they ended up with a game that lacked it's own unique identity and voice, which made it all rather forgettable in turn.

    If you say so.
    You seem to be implying that I care about the reasons for why a game was made.

    I don't care, so long as it is fun.

    And frankly anyone who does care is being astoundingly silly.

    No, I'm saying I don't understand how X-2 can be one of the best games in the series in spite of the things I, and Vivi listed.

    And you missed the point entirely.

    You don't seem to be understanding my point, but...

    This could be Birdemic vs. Citizen Kane and I'd vote for Birdemic. This could be Ocarina of Time vs. Angry Birds and I'd vote for Angry Birds.

    I'm not going to sit here and nail a NO FUN ALLOWED sign into the floor. I play games for fun. Period.

    Fair enough. I expected more when the word best was used, but I don't have any problems with your reasoning.
