Discussion: FFX-2

Wow, it's been a while since I wrote something.

Anyway, with the FFX HD Remaster only a few days away, I just wanna bring up the topic of X-2. X-2 was probably one of the biggest dividers in the community when it came out. So like it or not, it's getting packaged with the original X. 

The game's combat system is fun to play around with, it's deep and it does have a level of strategy to it. What's wrong with a FF game with a job system? The story structure is alright I guess, but come on that's the point of an RPG; you have to explore everything to find everything.

I guess the biggest gripe with everyone is the tone of the game's story. It's much lighter compared to the seriousness of X, and again what's wrong with that? It's the way the story goes, the big evil is gone and the world is celebrating. People are taking up there new freedom from the old government and living it up, particularly Yuna. 

Or as one of my friends puts it, the new 'slutty' Yuna.

Yuna didn't have much freedom when she was younger and this is probably the first time in her life that she has been able to do something for herself. And honestly, her X-2 clothes make her look pretty hot. She's also definitely a lot more stronger emotionally than she was in the game before, give her some credit for that. 

I'm writing pretty sloppy I know, but let me boil it down. I like X-2, story and everything. Lots of people are still in denial over it. Look, if you don't like it don't play it. It's been ten years already, GET. OVER. IT.

I've been a gaming nut since I started out with a Playstation. Ever since then, it's kinda ruined my school performance (oh, well). These days, I'm into RPG's and whatever I'm willing to try.
