Regardless, Tidus is easily the most annoying character in any video game ever in my opinion. His voice is annoying, his personality is annoying, and although you have to blame the script for it, many of his interactions are like nails on a chalk board when you listen to them.
The gameplay of FFX is good, I'm not a big fan of the sphere grid but It's not that big of a deal. The overall story is fairly interesting. Tidus is literally the only reason why I will not play through the game as it's hard to play an RPG where you hate the main character.
Obviously some like him which is cool, but he is probably my #1 most hated video game character as no other character has ever stopped me from playing a game other than him.
As for what I've been playing, lots of Bravely Default.
