If we don't end war, war will end us "H.G.Wells"
I havent really played the series but I am going to give some of them a shot. Me and some friends are going to make Lets Plays on a few of them.
If you can access it, you should play Final Fantasy VII. It's a legendary game.
My friend owns that one. I might have to give it a try.
You will not be disappointed. I promise. It's pretty much the standard for all RPG's to follow...
As for XIII-2, I hope the combat system is turn-based or ATB. Hopefully we also won't get another twenty hour tutorial either.
