2009's Final Fantasy XIII set the stage for what would become a trilogy of RPG titles from Square Enix, but Cocoon and the battle against Sanctum was where it all started. With an ensemble cast, all full voiced, Final Fantasy XIII built an action RPG experience that continues to define Square Enix's high-end development plans.

Featuring the ATB (Active Time Battle) system, players would select their small, three-person parties and swap classes real-time as needed in order to maximize damage, healing and so on. While the player can only manage one character at a time, with the other two controlled by AI, just the one is plenty intense for attentive players. Don't drop that combo chain, or you'll regret it.

After Lightning's sister, Serah, discovers a fal'Cie she is captured and condemned for the tyranny of Sanctum. Lightning, who refuses to believe that her sister's transformation into a feared l'Cie, joins up with a group of similarly-minded individuals to set Serah free. Among them are Snow, a rebel leader, Sazh, whose son has also been taken, Fang and Vanille, who both have mysterious pasts, and finally Hope, hunting for vengeance. Discovering the truth while rescuing Serah will not be simple, or even make much sense, but at least we all know a final boss which can be blamed for everything awaits at the end of the game.
