^ This. I don't know how people not get that it was done on purpose. Also people b. about it upset the voice actor : /
My unpopular opinions:
FFXIII is not much more linear than FFX.
Lightning Returns is awesome and fixed all XIII problems.
Paradigms are awesome.
Crisis Core made Zack's death worse - Yes, I cried, I have a heart, but it's soooo melodramatic. 100 soldiers?! Long, sad speech? Nah.
I don't like Amano's style. He draws all characters faces the same.
Rinoa is the most annoying character ever, Squall is boring, Laguna should be the main character of FFVIII.
I like Amano, but the faces he draws do tend to look the same. I really like his backgrounds/compositions/use of color but I can see how the uniformity/lack of emotion of his faces could be seen as lazy/a turnoff.
