Right before the new year, I decided to install and play a game from my backlog, and I ended up choosing Final Fantasy XIII-2. And I'm so glad I did, because I haven't played anything but FF XIII-2 for a couple weeks now - that's how much I'm enjoying it.
I played and enjoyed most of FF XIII, but I got really tired of some parts of it at about 80% of the way, and stopped playing. However, I was invested enough in the setting and characters that I watched the rest of the game on Youtube because I wanted to see how it ended. XIII-2 not only picks up where XIII left, but it also fixes most of the issues I had with that game, while capitalizing on its strengths. Of the Final Fantasy games I've played so far (XIII, X, and XIII-2, in that order), it's the one I enjoyed - am enjoying - the most.
Anyway, congrats, @Ryan_Kelly ! Your turn!
