Ahhh yay! Well more or less it’s good practice from when I was majoring in English, I just want to emphasize and reiterate the good parts and hard work/effort that went into the game that so many people overlook with “it’s too linear.” In hindsight, the plot required a very linear game. Everyone had doom cast on them! Think about it! Would you dawdle around in a town if every day that passed you were closer to death? I’d be running like hell.
But those are just my two cents on FFXIII.
