    I guess I can add FFXV to the list now. Iím absolutely in love with it but like most of the old guard of the FF community seem very bitter towards it.

    This is the really big one for me too. For me, Dragon Quarter is far and away the most interesting Breath of Fire game, and I'd probably go so far as to count it among my top ten RPGs of all time. But the game inspires so much hostility in almost of the RPG players I've met, both online and off. I can count on one hand the people I've met who even tolerate it, much less like it.
    Hey, you can add me to that one hand count.

    Honestly nothing really comes to mind, both "hate" and "love" are strong words. Like, I enjoyed FFXIII and FFXV but that's far from loving them. On the other hand you've got something like Tales of Graces f which I did love, but then my friends have more of a "meh" reaction to that game, which is far from hate.

    I guess the closest would be Ar Tonelico Qoga and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, love both but generally others range from disinterest because fanservice leaves a bad first impression, to having played the game but disliking it overall.

    Hey my take on XC2 clearly doesnít count because I havenít played it!

    I'm almost afraid to try XC2 now that I have access to a Switch. I almost feel like Spoony/Noah with FF8 or 10 in regards to it. I don't like the fanservice, and I don't like that fanservice was used with what appeared to be 12 year olds. And their costume designs makes my head hurt. And then when it was localized I found out that those 12 year olds have the voices of 30 year olds (or at least the main character). But either way, no matter how good the game may be, I don't think it would be wise or fair for me to attempt a serious playthrough with the mindset I've had regarding it. So I just kind of ignore that it exists. It doesn't hurt my enjoyment of the first game, so it's whatever I guess. But it is unfortunate that they made those design choices and put off so many former fans of the first game

    Mirrors Edge is one of the most purely enjoyable games I've ever played. Always loved the way moving in that world felt and disappointed I never played anything else that captured that magic.

    I'd like Mirror's Edge more if it wasn't for the forced combat sections. Escaping from a building while guards are chasing you down is intense and fun. Not so much when you get stuck in an arena and now have to fight through them to complete the level. Game should have been pure platform if you ask me.
