    Default Was this your first FF?

    I heard that a lot of younger people got introduced into the series with this entry. I wanted to put things into perspective and see just how many such people decided to join us here

    No, but I really liked it even if I played seven or eight FF games before this one.

    I've been playing Final Fantasy since VII so not really. Not really? Just no.

    If I had been of a certain age and this was my first, I would have been happy with it. The same way I'm happy VII was my first even though it's highly flawed. I played it when I was 11 and immune to adult bitterness. The themes of being an outcast would have resonated more, the characters wouldn't have seemed like such tropes, and the battle system is fun. It's pretty to look at and to hear. It has good things about it. It's also a complete game and that is virtually unheard of by the time we reached the PS3/360 era. There were no mountains of DLC or day zero patch to fix copious amounts of bugs and glitches. It was just a done game. It would have been a nice first, at a certain age.

    So no, in short.

    No and I doubt I would have disliked it because I would not have had something to compare it with and therefore also not started unnecessary fanboy rants like those roaming the internet.

    No. Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy 7 were the two games that introduced me to the franchise when I was a teen back in high school.

    No, FF-XIII was not my first exposure to a FF game. FF-XIII was the second FF game I played and beat on Xbox 360. The first FF game I played and beat was Lightning Returns.
    I don't own a PS3/PS4 or PC. The 13 series is my introduction to FF games.
    I have only been playing them for like eight months.

    So, do you plan to check out the rest of the series? I'm seriously curious how someone who began with XIII (or any part of its trilogy) would feel about the other games.

    At some point if I do decide to get a PS3/PS4 I might take a look into the other FF games in the franchise. Right now I have no plans to get a PS3/PS4. I might eventually get Xbox One and I hear there's a FF game coming for that system.

    A couple of the Final Fantasy games are available on Steam. Mainly III, IV, VII, and VIII. Can't recommend the last three enough, but I don't know how much they changed in the 3D version of IV compared to the one I played.
