I don't understand Final Fantasy XIII. While it's beautiful and impressive in creating a whole universe, it's the most linear, non-interactive game I've ever played. You walk down a straight hallway, meet some dudes, press "X" and the battle eventually ends. I'm like 10 hours in, and this is all the game is for me. Impressive cut-scenes, but no game.
Before Heavy Rain was released, the rap on it was "It's not a game. It's a collection of cut-scenes." I say, Heavy Rain is much more of a game than Final Fantasy XIII.
Help me understand Final Fantasy XIII fans. Tell me what you like about it.
