I was thinking about picking up the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy while it's on sale on steam, i.e. these games:
- Final Fantasy XIII
- Final Fantasy XIII-2
- Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
(correct me if those are in the wrong order)
However I was wondering if the story of those three games is self-contained? That is, if I play the three games from start to finish, will I have finished the entire story or are there connections (events, characters, the world) to earlier or later games in the Final Fantasy franchise? And if so, do I need to play those games as well to understand the story of the three games in question or does it make sense on it's own?
