Vanille is the Worst Character Ever.


Iíve been playing Final Fantasy XIII since release date and Iíve made it quite far in the game considering how much time Iíve had to play it. Unfortunately the game hasnít opened up enough for me to judge its overall value, but it has gone on long enough for me to recognize that Vanille is the worst character ever created.

Everything about her is just oozing with terrible design. She has an accent that's barley maintained, she has no connection with the events of the story, her personality is one dimensional, and manages to be unlikable despite that. In fact she enraged me so much that I made a video dedicated to my loathing of her existence in this game. Check it out:

I hoped that Square Enix learned to not make the same mistakes with character design when they muffled up FF12's entire cast so much, but I suppose it is a different team this time around. Overall I've been enjoying FF13 has a game, its just this one character that's been bugging me.

Semi Related: Unfortunately this blog isnít related to my ambitions to analyze choices in video games, or take a side in the ďgameplay or storyĒ argument that Heavy Rain sparked. However I still plan for those to exist down the pipe. I originally had the plan of having one article each month, but that hasnít really worked out so well. Anyway, enjoy the above video, I was up till 5am making it.

My name is Artie Augustyn... and I'm an alcoholic. No I'm not, but I feel inclined to say that joke when given the opportunity no matter how predictable it has become. I started playing video games in 1997 when my parents bought me a Nintendo 64 and pleading for one for years. I was given Super Mario 64 and Goldeneye 64 on Christmas, and a year later on my Birthday I got Ocarina of the Time. I eventually moved up to a GameCube based on the brand recognition. I was soon persuaded into the world of Sony after playing Dynasty Warriors and Vice City at a friends house, and now I stand before you with an Xbox360, Playstation 3, Wii and PC.

For the most part many people have considered me a "late gamer." I never owned a NES, SNES, Sega Console, or Atari and I get a lot of flak for that. I've begun an initiative recently to go back and play older games that people hold to high praise and you can follow that on my podcast which I'm sure I'll mention a thousand times in this blog.

In terms of my views on gaming, I'd like to think that gaming will one day achieve a level of professionalism and seriousness such as movies or books. I think there are a few reasons that this goal has been kept back. Many gamers don't take the notion seriously, in addition to many leading voices not knowing what they're talking about, and in general everyone's disbelief that it's possible for games to be something more than what they already are. Although, I found Destructoid's views to make the most sense out of what I've seen so far, so I made an account on that sole reason.

I think that covers everything.
