I am going to just laugh at you. I know jb, and i also know he has not played ff13 or any of its sequels. I also know he is a very large fan of jrpgs. Further more he has never played any of the final fantasy games, which made his whole statement about square enix based on a hop on the bandwagon routine.
edit: you can have an opinion about what you think the game will be like or whether or not you will be interested or not, but not an opinion about something you have never played. That said in this case it was a personal recommendation because again i know him and i know what kind of games he likes.
