I think the reason they prefer new games is like ummm you know when you see a new movie and you're like wow BEST.MOVIE.EVER and then few months later the films still in your mind. You go and see and film equally/nearly as good. You come out BEST.MOVIE.EVER. Maybe cause ff13 is fresh in their minds it seems like the best FF game  ;D ;D

Probably. I had the same reaction when I beat Skyward Sword. I thought it was the absolute best Zelda game. Now it's dropped to the #2 slot. I love the game, but I still like Majora's Mask more. ;D

When it released worldwide, yes. However, I seem to remember the first month or so of Japanese-only versions being out were okay. I did have a closed atmosphere with the game though. I watched TokyoDomeSF4's blind playthrough of it, and that was it, so I might have missed out on a lot of other reviewers. He greatly enjoyed the game though.

I've got the impression that Japanese people generally liked the game. And Famitsu kinda confirms that, how else could FFXIII become the best game of all-time. Its definitely partly the hype around the game, but if people hated it they wouldn't have voted for it.

Best game of all time?  Hardly.  I wouldn't even rank it as one of the better FF games.  I'd put it somewhere between the middle and bottom.

All these FF games I thought were better:

FFXII
FFX
FFVI
FFVII
FFVIII
FFIX
FFIV

No particular order.

Below that list I'd have FFXIII
