in my opinion i think that square is starting to lose its edge within the gaming industry.
with all the latest games such as Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 and other great looking games
coming out i believe they are falling behind, although they it seems they still are top in
making rpg genre games. i think that if Final Fantasy 13 or Versus 13 doesn't go well
then square will start to lose its popularity in the gaming industry who in the end only has the product of the name final fantasy for sell. as i am a big rpg fan i hope that the up coming games will be awesome and if it is than square is still in the game with the other companies. well what do you guys think?



ROFL. u dumb gamer. rpg and fps are so different. as long as japan, playstation and gamers exist there won't be troubles.

PS...I dig ur suiokoden avi. i forgot wut rune that is. but that game was ill. love those minature army battles

You're comparing an RPG franchise company to FPS games...besides Halo 3 didn't even look that good you're out of your mind,

I don't think they have quite lost their touch FF12 was a rather good game.
Exactly what other RPG's have came out since FF12 that have been so superior in your opinion?

Yeah you really cant compare RPG'S to FPS and Halo 3 in my opinion is just Halo 2 with more weapons and other stuff

ummm.... i think he's talking about the franchise company itself, not what genre game they're making.

of the various gameplay, graphics, etc., etc., i believe that all of the franchise gaming companies are making it within their own genre based games but if there is a challenge to say, make a FPS into a RPGMMOG it'd be different in it's own sense.

Square is old-school and, as stated before, being ahead in the race since the gaming industry started. I think that we need to get back into the topic of the various gaming franchise companies and what we think about them in GENERAL instead of getting rubbed the wrong way with the mix up of RPG and FPS. So ppl's already made a point about it, get over it.

Yeah you can't really compare and RPG based company with an FPS one. And even if you force standards of comparison, Square doesn't need to keep up. I even still play old school games like Chrono Trigger (I have it as a rom) and I don't get tired of them.

right you talk as if crystal chronicles was good or something but in reality nobody talks about that game because it was cheesy.

I like square enix. I liked the name square soft better than square enix because enix is a weird word... I liked FFXII. I think that if they do start to go down hill, they will just get better again.

In terms of producing RPG games then I'd say yes, Squarenix is still somehow coping up with other game companies. The problem is that Squarenix is now losing it's touch. I mean, ever since Squarenix has set the standards for RPG games and has been excelling on it. The lack of competition from other game companies who produce the same type of game and also within their own is what's stagnating the company. They're focusing too much on the Final Fantasy series so much so that the other RPG games they produce becomes standard quality.

The only thing I thing I can say to them right now is that they should evolve they're RPG games more so that they can continue to hold the number one spot in producing this type of games. I mean, there are still lots of room for them to improve on the game quality of their RPG games. For instance, the upcoming RTS game "Endwar" being produced by Ubisoft would future voice activated commands or so I heard. If what I heard is true then it would be a first for this type of game. Also FPS games today are improving in terms of graphics quality. It's beginning to feel more and more realistic and without a doubt "Crysis" has set the standard for this type of game.

Square-enix doesn't have to keep up with anyone. Everyone else has been chasing them for years.

You're right though, if ffxiii doesn't go down well it'd be catastrophic, they've banked everything on its success. That seems unlikely though, considering the teams that they've managed to put together. Besides, the demos for the ffxiii series look great.


agreed

It may not be so for most ppl, but personally, I'm anticipating them. Especially the gameplay and how much difference they would be from their predecessors.
