No, we hate him because he's a snotty little brat that literally disappears for the majority of the game. Zidane isn't a superspecial snowflake descendant of a hero/last survivor of a race/number one soldier/chosen one/everything revolves around me amazing prodigy with a tragic past, and he's a 1000000000000x better character than Vaan will ever be. Neither is Bartz. And then we have all of FF6's amazing characters, and that game had no main character. No, Terra was not the main character. I don't get your logic. You complain about ATB FF games lacking in strategy, but that you don't care about those fights that actually do require strategy in the same ATB FF games, too... I have nothing against being a casual gamer but you might wanna' re-think your post lol.
