It seems like the near universal consensus is that 1 is better than 2. I'm curious what makes it better as I only played and beat XBC2. Thinking about getting 1 for my 3DS.

Does the first one have the really annoying stuff like the random cores (or something similar) and the field skills? Also, how do you think the battle system, story and characters compare?

The annoying thing about 1 was the huge number of missable sidequests

I mean, I like X more than both, but all 3 are really good games.

Where are you getting this?

For every person you see saying 1 is better, you can find another person saying 2 is better.

This. I would almost say more people are saying 2 is better.

Anecdotal, so I could very well be wrong.

The battle system is similar, minus the elemental combos. You can still break, topple, and launch (or maybe it was called daze, I forget now).

Basically, XB1 has less stuff to do compared to XB2, but it feels more polished. Also the story is told better.

Less stuff might not be all that bad bad. I got the impression with XB2 that they kinda through every gameplay system they could think of into the game. It makes for a huge get but it's also a bit ridiculous how many systems were included.

Honestly, I like XC2 more purely because I like the battle system more.

I'm completely awful at XC1's combat system. It was way too complex for me to grasp, and that's not even accounting for gems which only added to my confusion. Constant grinding was the only way I was able to beat it. In a way, my inability to grasp it hampered my ability to appreciate everything else about the game.

XC2, much more steamlined and easier to grasp battle system which allowed me to better enjoy things like the overworld and music.
