I have completed my Focus... Eternal life awaits...

Now most of you who know me are aware of the fact that I've beaten The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 37 times (Yes I've kept count).  In my opinion, that is by far the best game I've ever played in my entire life.  But I just came across a game that is a pretty damn close 2nd.

I've always wanted to get into the who Final Fantasy franchise but I never really acted on it.  I never bought a game or really played one for an extended period of time.  But recently I was running out of games to play and decided that I would go out and buy Final Fantasy 13 for my XBOX 360.  I knew it was going to be different than any other RPG I've played before because it was turn based and whatnot.  I had heard read some really good reviews online and a lot of my friends told me that it was an amazing game.

Upon plopping the disk into my console and playing for several hours I began to realize how linear this game was, which was surprising because I had heard about the earlier games being different.  It was as if I was walking through an extremely straight tunnel...  but that tunnel was the most beautiful tunnel I have EVER walked through.

The storyline in this game was so amazing.  The cutscenes were scripted so well that I was extremely captivated by the whole thing, especially the ending... it was pretty emotional... not gonna lie.  Not to mention that Lightning is pretty fucking badass and I sure as shit would not want to fuck with Fang.  Sorry people but I'd like to have kids one day.  Also... did anyone else get the feeling that Vanille was kind of slutty?  I mean the way she walked just looked like she was a crack whore looking for some druggie to fuck.  And Hope with his annoying cliche motivational speeches... that got kind of annoying as well.  But hey they pulled it off extremely well.  Kudos to the crew who worked on this game... you all did an amazing job.

Now as I said before The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is my #1 game of all time (Let's call it a 10/10).  But this game comes as close as you can get to that game.  If I had to put a number on it, then it would be a 9.999999999999999999999999999... (you get it) out of 10.  If you haven't bought this game yet I suggest you go do it.  I guarantee you it won't disappoint.

Well kids, it's time for me to go farm.  All that's left for me to do now that Orphan is dead is the go farm asstons of CP so I can max out my characters and farm Adamantoises and (Sha)Long Guis until my eyes bleed.  Gonna be farming for a while but at least my experiences with farming things repeatedly on World of Warcraft have prepared me to handle hours upon hours of mindnumblingly boring tasks.  Sigh...  I guess I just have to pretend that this is my new Focus and if I don't complete it I will turn into one of those ugly Cie'th.  I MUST COMPLETE MY FOCUS!!!

Peace out bitches.


  1. On a uh, more serious note (comment?), I don't think the game is worth nearly a perfect score like you gave it. The game being so linear is a real put off as you can't go exploring like you could in previous FF games, but one could argue that is a good thing as you can't get lost trying to find/achieve your goal.
