Points I made about the game slowly creeps up

8 replies 14 views Edited Mar 8, 2010

This is the very first thread which I see someone questioning why they force you to beat the game to unlock existing (not optional) content

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=928790&topic=53807265&page=2

 

It's fine if you beat the game and you get a New game+ or get some additional content however it is not the case in FFXIII.  In FFXIII, you unlock a crucial element of your character growth only until after beating the game.  It doesn't make any sense whatsoever. It's EXTREMELY bad game design. 

 

By the end of April, pretty much everything I've said about the game will be talked about and the dust will finally settle.  All those people arguing with the TC don't even know what they're in for and once they do, it's not going to be what they thought it was going to be.

I'm going to make this as simple as possible.  Crystarium Grid is like Sphere Grid, and that is equal to levelling up.  Essentially what happens in FFXIII is that the game prevents you from getting your last level up until you beat the game.

 

This is not about bonus content.  When you beat the game, you get NO bonus content.  The point I'm trying to make is that the level up system is a part of the game and they don't even let you have all of it until you beat the game.  All the missions they put there for you to do are impossible to do because they keep an important piece of the game from you just cause of the story.

I  get it now do you think they were trying to prevent with what happened in FFX,  like using the aeons and killing a boss with one hit with it after level grinding, or leveling up ridiculous where its to the point of killing a boss in 2 hits.

Nope because it makes sense to put a cap from going from Chapter 1-13 but they should have unlocked the last grid in Chapter 13 when they opened up the warp points.  It's obvious that they wanted you to play the story first and game later.  People who play the story mainly probably wouldn't even want to come back.

Coffee I understand you know what you're talking about, unlike 98% of the people here but I say just let them sweat it out and wait till tomorrow...  All of your posts and threads will soon be realised as truth so there is really no point in making them now....
