I'd wait for Versus. XV will probably be more trash. XIV is an mmo--'nuff said.

I guess if you liked XII, then you'd probably like XIII.

Considering ff xiv is an online game (mmorpg), I'd say ff xiii has a better story, but that's only because mmorpgs tend to lack stories. Their stories tend to be about the world as a whole rather than individual plot and progression. I haven't played ff xiv but just in general, rpg vs mmorpg, rpg has the better story

i will say this and many people agree... final fantasy 13 you can play for hours without finding out the plot. that was why i stopped playing it. truthfully it may have a good plot (doubtful) but no matter how good or bad a plot is you can't stand it( for me anyway). they only really worked on graphics and not story.

I'd actually have to disagree with this. Unlike the older ff's that had an open world system, ff xiii was actually extremely linear until the very end which made story progression quick and grind/training/side quest non-existent until the very end. With the amount of cinegraphics and "extra information" about the history, the plot is pretty much the only thing ff xiii has for the first 90%. Now whether the story is good or bad is a different question, but with its linear state, story progression is mandatory and noticeable

thats true XII had a good story but the summary for XIII had a nice feel to it kinda better than XII (though i regret reading it none ) cuz i kinda liked the clockwork kind of plot and the futuristic theme to it. im not into that kind of old magic kind of plot in XII

While I do wish the main storyline were longer and there were real sidequests, the story was still great and the characters likable and deep. I personally loved the first runthrough, and have replayed once and am currently doing so again, but as an NCU challenge.
The linearity didn't bother me, as the open-world part towards the end was enough for me. After the first three Final Fantasies (more time lost and confused than anything), I am to this day thankful for straightforward plot progression.
Also, FF13-2 is a lot more open-world and non-linear with multiple endings.

I don't think Square-Enix can produce a decent game for this series anymore.
XII was the last worthy one. They seem to spend more time on the hair
than on the script. No idea how the plot of XIV is, but I don't think it'll be
any good. XIII can't compare to anything from the 90s or X.

They are both terrible. Get Last Story instead. =D Though in all seriousness, they are both derpy as hell. If you are after the story you will be sorely disappointed. If you are just looking for a kinda fun fantasy game you won't take seriously they are a lot of fun... You just can't think to much about it. (the plot holesss everywhereee)

(And Versus got canned about a month ago. So that's never coming out. Which is fine with me. Maybe the guy will get working on KH3 now =3= )

can't help... the last FF i played was FFXII, stopped once FFXII-2 came out and i hated it.
FF1-6 were great, FFVII was good but the 3d made me like it less than i could for sure, VIII - X had a really nice feeling the minigames were fun, XII had an anime like plot those that never get a happy end... XII-2 plot fucked it tho... Im with the guy that thinks Square-Enix can't make a good FF anymore.

ok. ignore all the past FFs except XIII and XIV and pretend that thses were the only 2 games Square-Enix makes. Which. One. Has. The. Better. Story? none but i get your reason.

Seriously, what do you want us to say? You already read through the entire plot of FFXIII and the latter is a flippin' MMORGP, so there is no real plot. I mean, yeah, FFXIV has a plot, but not one driven by fictional characters. FFXIII has the better story by default.

And if we're pretending Final Fantasy XIII & XIV are the only two games Square-Enix makes, I'd recommend Persona 3 & 4.

^What he said. Ditch FF and go with Persona. Or 3rd birthday.

But yes, if you want plot got with 13.
