Why sequels to the probably worse Final Fantasy ever?
Posted: Posted December 28th, 2017 by Angemon

I understand some of you might find FFXIII entertaining enough. For me, it's just plain disappointing. But there's one thing I'm pretty sure we can all agree on. It's if there's a top 5 best FF of all time, FFXIII wouldn't make it to the cut. So why SquareEnix decided it was a good idea to make a sequel to it? Not one, but two! (Amazingly, i heard the two sequels are not better off too) They could have easily pick one of the better FF to build continued story upon. I can't brain this. Any theories why?

Based on what I could dig up.via Google, the answer is money. 13 became the fastest selling title in the franchise at that point. The game was, generally speaking, well received so it only makes sense that SE would make a sequel. 13-2 also received favorable scores and, from what I've read, left the story open so that a sequel was needed to wrap it up

As usual, cash cow. But even that is weird. They wanted to cash in quick on some pretty crap games, but they took ages to do a FF7 remake, and never make sequels a lot of people wanted. Even FFX-2's world was mostly a copy-paste (they absolutely ripped 90% of the traverse-able world map from FFX) effort with some new character sprites, somewhat crappy music and a significantly weaker storyline.
