Xenogears and FFVII are Squaresoft's best games.

I've never heard of this game and from reading reviews of it, it doesnt look that good. According to IGN the Press Average is a 6.8/10, the Reader Average is a 7.9/10 and the IGN score is a 7.7.

It might be fun to play but i doubt it's great.

Looks good, will give it a try. By the way, I've seen some screenshots and it doesn't look bad at all by my standards (maybe I only saw the good ones... ).

Xenogears is my favorite Square game. I mentioned FFVII cuz it's Square's most popular and it is a good game. It is overrated but that doesnt make it bad.

Oh yea, i forgot that Chrono Trigger was made by Square. That's definitely better than FFVII.

Edit: If you look, i provided an average reader rating. That would override you're whole argument of gaming critics giving bogus scores (which doesnt make any sense whatsoever). If the game can't even get over an 8.0 let alone a 9.0, out of 600 reader scores, i doubt it's a great game. Interesting and fun, maybe, but not GREAT.

Speaking of Square, doesn't anybody feel that since Squaresoft and Enix became Square Enix did most of the overall quality of the games the company has produced has gone down?

Not the big titles like say the Final Fantasy series, but other series like Front Mission (they ruined it for me) or the last Musashi game (voice-acting was horrid, gameplay mediocre). Anybody feel the same way?

Eh nope. I really enjoyed Star Ocean: Second story from Enix. Besides that, Squaresoft's Threads of Fate is for RPG noobs, good for beginners.

Was expecting the same. Maybe it's because people actually like you here :p

FF7 didn't really suck, however it sucked as a Final Fantasy game. (Is expecting flames.)


I've just played thru most of the SNES final fantasy series (of course ps series as well) and also agree in your choices. thats all.

No Final Fantasy 7 just plain sucked and is the most overrated Final Fantasy that Squaresoft has put out. I also have to agree with everything in the above post except that didn't suck statement. Chrono Trigger is better than VII, actually better than all of them. Chrono Cross was pretty good and Xenogears I love so much.


I recommend Panzer Dragoon Saga (which was shortly released after FF7) better story, gameplay, and equal in graphics.

Final Fantasy was a pretty good game plot wise and yes it was one of Square's greatest creations.But i do have to say Xenogears kicked FF7s ass,maybe not in sales but the plot,fighting system,graphics i mean it just rocked!But anyways back to the subject at hand,I remember playing the demo over and over for Threads of Fate but i never got a chance to buy it cause i could never find it.But a while ago i found a copy but it was like 30 bucks and i didnt have any cash and by the time i came back it was already gone.I was kinda pissed.But i have aquiered some good games recently.
Legend of Legaia,Tales of Destiny,Grandia,Brave Fencer Musashi( i actually have 3 copies of it cause i found em all cheap)Breathe of Fire 3(im lookin for BoF4,pretty hard to find)I also picked up Wild Arms.I almost cried the other day cause i found a game ive been lookin for for like EVER!It was Super Mario RPG:Legend of the Seven Stars but it was 50 DOLLARS!! I wanted it soooo bad but i jsut couldnt afford it....i died a little inside...
sorry for gettin off topic though

Threads of Fate is a great PS1 game. I loved it until I got stuck at the mountain, then I got past and I'm stuck again.. Thinking of picking it up now. thanks... xD
Love the gameplay, love the bosses. The graphics are okay for PS1, but that's not really why we should play games, is it?
RECOMMENDED for old school RPG fans. ;D
