Wait. How is XIII-2 great when XIII was kind of....bad?
That's the shocker--I hated Final Fantasy XIII! Well, I hated a lot of the characters and almost all of the writing (Sazh and Snow were great, though). I loved playing the game part of it--when I was allowed to. Finally, when it opened up and gave me access to all the classes and let me explore some, I liked it--but it was like 25 hours too late.
FFXIII-2 may have a goofy story, but it's damn fun to play. 3nodding
I've heard good things about Revelations but I'm not really a Resident Evil fan. The only one I've beat is 5 and that's because it's multiplayer and I enjoy games I can play with friends even if they're not in a genre I personally enjoy(hence the relatively high number of FPS/TPS games that I've beat).
I'm looking forward to X-Com(the strategy game, not the FPS) when that comes out. It looks very promising.
