Final Fantasy XIII – Should I Get It?
I’m in a bit of a pickle. I really want to get Final Fantasy XIII but not for the reason that millions of people have bought it. I don’t care to play the game at all honestly. I just want to get it for the Final Fantasy XIV Online Campaign Code that gives you an in-game item as well as a chance to be in the (PS3 version) Beta. $60 for a code that may or may not get me in the Beta and I don’t even know what the in-game item will be 😦
I’m not saying that I wouldn’t like FF XIII at all. I’m sure it’s an awesome experience. I’m betting it will be what Final Fantasy VII was for the original Playstation or what Final Fantasy X was for the Playstation 2. I burned over 100 hours on each of these games. These were/are epic games in my mind. What I will say is that even combining the time I spent on these 2 games it doesn’t even compare to the time I burned in Final Fantasy XI Online. Over 36 DAYS game time and that’s only one of three characters that I made. Granted one was purely a mule but that’s besides the point. Seeing as I played Final Fantasy XI so much, I truly am way more interested in Final Fantasy XIV than XIII… Obviously.
Now I can go ahead and buy the game to possibly (only in the initial production run) get the code and try to enjoy the game as my “bonus”. Or I can try to get the code elsewhere. The latter situation would be the preferable one but as to looking at my last post, even the offer of a $10 PSN Voucher apparently is not enough. I just thought that if someone didn’t plan to use the Campaign Code, a $10 voucher would be more valuable than a card getting dusty in the box. I’m not sayin I’m just sayin.
