I wish FFXIII was titled something else, separate from the FF universe. The only consistency was the name of a few of the espers (read: Transformers). If it was a marketed as a new IP, i might not hate it so much. I had such high hopes for that game to satiate a JRPG craving I've had for years, but it was nothing more than a slap in the face to fans of the series.
