Final Fantasy XIII-2 — A Lesson in How Story Matters

Posted by | January 28, 2012

The Final Fantasy series has suffered a peculiar disease, one common to artists and designers who go too long without criticism, who gather too many fans who adore the artist and not the art. That disease is creeping stylism. The work of the artist becomes more and more obscure, bizarre, more tied to the tropes and references of what came before. Eventually, no one save the artist himself can understand what in the hell is going on. To illustrate that point, here’s a review of Final Fantasy XIII-2. GameInformer has the story.

    It’s weird. Good story and bad story both cost the same. But companies are willing to break their game with bad story instead of calling BS and pulling in a more capable writer. I don’t get it.
