I just want to know one thing about modern RPGs.

Who in the blue HELL decided it was a good idea to let you control only one character in battle?
This is in regards to Final Fantasy XIII being turn-based, but you still only being allowed to control only one character at a time. If that weren't enough, controlling your other characters is impossible. It's not like in XII, where you can use Gambits or whatever, or like in KH, where you can indirectly control them through your own actions. All you can do is control the one character and basically tell everyone else to either heal or attack.
Honestly, I'd go as far to say action RPGs are killing the whole genre. In fact, it's already dead. Just one seemingly trivial gameplay change has rendered them nearly unplayable. Why even do it in the first place!? All they do now is cater to people who like explosions and special effects. And while I love a good boom, it's not a solid enough foundation for something. Michael Bay.
Well, see you guys at Final Fantasy XV (since XIV is going to be another MMORPG).
