Oh, It’s On Like Donkey Kong, err, Darth Vader!
I want a clean fight: no punching below the belt, no Bahamut and no Force chokes
This is going to send the otaku elite into paroxysms of, well, whatever it is that passes for rage amongst the terminally passive-aggressive:
Final Fantasy XIII is not a true RPG by BioWare’s definition, according to Star Wars: The Old Republic writing director Daniel Erickson.
“You don’t make any choices, you don’t create a character, you don’t live your character,” Erickson continued. “I don’t know what those are – adventure games maybe? But they’re not RPGs.”
The BioWare man admitted that his comments would be “controversial”.
Controversial? I guess, but he also happens to be correct: Final Fantasy XIII is, in no meaningful way, an RPG in even the loosest sense, other than Square-Enix calls it one. Which is kinda like me calling SEGA a company that has no idea what it’s doing anymore…which is actually true…so, uh, never mind.
