FFX vs LoZ:SS

A more interesting question, for me, than Civilization versus Final Fantasy might be this: Why do I enjoy Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword but not Final Fantasy X?

They’re both linear storylines. In both, you walk from cut-scene to cut-scene, possibly with some combat in between.

It’s not as simple as real-time versus turn-based combat. I tend to prefer turn-based, and FFX is the one with turn-based combat.

Hmm, have you played FF IV, VI, or VII? In my opinion, those are much more engaging that FF X, and the comparison of one of those with Skyward Sword might not be so cut-and-dry. That is, I think that the story of FF X is just not that good (personal opinion, of course, but coming from someone who greatly enjoys many of the other FF games).
