>the end

>Took a sick day yesterday, and, well, I ended up finishing Final Fantasy 13. I couldn’t possibly tell you what happened; I’m not sure I’ve ever spent 60 hours playing a game while being so thoroughly confused about what was going on, and the ending is even more nonsensical than the setup. I think I had fun? Yeah, I had fun. I really started to enjoy the battle system towards the end (although not enough to go back in and keep playing).

Here’s my box quote: “I have no goddamned idea what the hell happened, but it sure was pretty.”
