Yup, there’s no doubting that this game in itself is controversial. While FFXIII has a large fan-base, it arguably has haters which seem to be just as large. While some believe the haters are a very (very, very, very) vocal minority, I believe that the ratio of fans to haters are 1:1, 50/50…whatever, depending on which sequel the haters fluctuate, but I’m talking/writing/ranting about the first one! The one that started it all! The one where Lightning is actually the main heroine! Final Fantasy XIII!
Okay! As an avid Final Fantasy VIII fan I feel like I have to clear some of the douchified air surrounding the main protagonist: Squall Leonhart. I’m not about to go all “leeeavee Squall aloooooone” on you guys however….I feel like the hero of VIII just cops too much flack for the type of character he is, and we can probably blame how the media has shaped our current society for that.
