Echoes in time made me depressed. The series is way more depressing than that cry baby Tidus in X. Shuyin definitely shut Tidus up in X-2. XI and XIV are just cameo separated games due to its online bull crap. XIII was alright but freaking I had spent almost 250 bucks for the collector edition for xiii-2 and that game was so easy! I really like the Chrono series because the series if you played the game with just the weakest weapons only, now that's really challenging and tough. Pretty much after Lightning Returns, I wanted a challenge RPG. So far..... I found some RPGs that were really tough such Shin Megami, Unchained Blades, and Tales series.
Square became assholes after they screwed over with XIII which was my favorite game for the female protagonist Lightning, aside from VI with Celes, and Echoes in time as a female if chosen.
I quit right after Lightning returns basically played all of the games from 1-13 basically including A2, Tactics ps1 Tactics psp and the dissidia series. its the freaking cost for a freaking game now a days which is definitely too expensive!!!! So I switched up with finding other RPGS to enjoy now a days, even Castlevania till this day.
