Final Fantasy XIII: Great story and characters. Poor gameplay and design.

 

Final Fantasy XIII-2: Much better gameplay and design. But what the heck did they do to the story?

 

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII: I've only played the demo, but I already like the direction of it. It sounds like it has a clever design from the reviews I've read, the gameplay was fun despite being limited to the demo and the story needs what this game is offering, at least from what I've seen in the trailers. I look forward to checking it out whenever I have the money or the time. Won't be for a while, but I anticipate it.

 

Personally, I'm with those that say a sequel was unnecessary. Maybe Square Enix needed to prove they could still make games that play well but they completely screwed up the happy ending of FFXIII. They ought to have just made something new.

Oh and then there's Mog. I like the characters of this series a lot. Even the much-hated Vanille and Hope. But I absolutely hate Mog. And that's hard, to get me to hate.

I hate Mog. So much.

I don't know a thing about it beyond what everyone keeps complaining (or defending) about.  The way I see it, playing it is a losing battle.  If I wind up hating it, I subjected myself to something I shouldn't have bothered with.  If I wind up liking it, I'll have to fend off the hordes who'll give me hell for daring to enjoy what I like.  I'll save myself trouble and just play Pokemon or something.

I loved them all. I don't care about what people say, it's a good game and a good trilogy. The first one was simply beautiful, and I really liked the story. The 2nd one wasn't as good in my opinion, but a lot more enjoyable (and it had corrected the mistakes made by the first one). The part I liked the most about LR was the combat system (because I enjoy action battle system a lot more than the turned based one). I would have liked to be able to control other characters too, not only Lightning.

I didn't like the series overall. I felt the end was kinda blah. I think I would have preferred if the original was just a stand alone, it was great. To be honest, when I was playing Lighting Returns, all I could think about was how much I missed the first game. Kinda sad, really. I'm actually, in the near future, going to trade the game in for some credit towards something else. The only sequel that ever worked, to this day, has to be FF X/X-2.

Haven't played 'em, so I don't know. General consensus I've gathered from others though is that the series went on too long.
