All of the great Final fantasy games were made by Square soft as well as the original kingdom hearts. They actually cared about what the fans wanted and knew how to make an amazing game. All Square Enix cares about is money. They're making a third final fantasy xiii and instead of releasing final fantasy xiii versus as that title they're releasing it as final fantasy xv to save money. how pathetic is that?

Eh, it's a company, and the entire purpose of a company IS to make/save money whenever/wherever possible as long as it doesn't impact the products.
I feel they still have good games, I play them. So I won't complain if they change a title to save money as long as it's still a solid game ^.^

I'm not a fan of the FFXIII Lightning franchise, which they're pushing down our throats. I'm sick of FFXIII I guess. But not Square Enix.

Course you're not. Many fans are quite fed up with another Lightning installment. She's like Toriyama's lover or something, he can't let her go. They're going to milk the series dry before moving on. However, there is something called Project Crystallis going on. To help push for Versus and localize Type-0. You can find us on Facebook, Tumblr and even Twitter.

Nah not really. I almost was when I found out about FFversusXIII. Then it was a rumor so now me and SE are on good terms.

Actually, all Square Enix cared about was creativity when making the first Final Fantasy XIII installment.

And, I was totally hooked on that game, the battle paradigm was magnificent, the graphic breathtaking and the story plot exceptional.


It's when fans make demands for this or that to be changed, that it takes away the creator's creativity.
I personally prefer to play games that were purely designed by the game designers... rather than games that have the same elements suggested by fans just because they can't accept new ideas or change.


Square Enix took a risk in Final Fantasy XIII by making the first 10 chapters played in enclosed space.
It was a great move, it wouldn't make sense for it to be open world because it wouldn't go along with the story plot.


Final Fantasy XIII-2 had everything the angry fans suggested, and it's great and unique as well, but to this day, I still wondered what would it have been like if they never listened to the fans and stuck to their original ideas. The story in XIII-2 sort of doesn't match with the gameplay and it conflicted with the first one.

I can't wait for XIII-3 Lightning Returns because it will be a whole new gameplay and ideas.

And no other game comes close when it comes to breathtaking realistic graphic.

You're not alone OP, I haven't bought a game they've made in long time. Games they have published is another story though.(Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Just Cause 2, Singularity, Hitman: Absolution, Sleeping Dogs) Are some really good games, wouldn't mind if they stop making games and focus on just publishing good games instead.

I don't like Square Enix because they decided after the merge to completely change the localization for new Dragon Warrior/Quest titles.

They hired a crappy 2 person company in the UK to translate all new titles for American release, and they decided it would be a good idea to completely screw over all of the long-time fans of the series by changing all spell names, character names, town names, and monster names. And then to top it all off, they added in crappy fake-regional phonetic accents to all of the DS releases for titles like DQIV, V, and VI that were almost completely illegible.

Stupid company.

I think their CEO admitted that the quality of their games is going down and the reason why they halted the FF7 remake. I guess we'll see what happens - to be honest its not their fault that their quality has gone down. People will buy games as long as it looks good, its reaps profits and lessens the workload for the programmers.

In the gaming industry today, graphics are more prioritized because its the most criticized aspect of the game. Even if we think gameplay > graphics - if we're talking business, we already lost 2 to 1 to the people who thinks graphics > gameplay.

Also, people are attracted to the "Franchise" which is Final Fantasy - people will buy it just because of the title because of its fanbase.

The only fix is to stop supporting these companies until they release a quality product.

they've been releasing a lot of unsatisfactory games in the past decade. Final Fantasy of course is the most obvious offender. The most recent Square released title that i enjoyed the most was Dragon Quest VIII, but that's only because developer Level 5 releases nothing but gems haha. i think their main problem is they focus WAY more on the story itself rather than the characters, which more or less ruins the experience with most of their games. Final Fantasy XIII was without a doubt my least enjoyed Square game, although i always hope that they can one day rekindle the fire they had going from their streak of hits during the SNES/PS1 era.

it is releasing the same theme and action replay for a long ass time only with different characters/story is what made them fail

but who knows when they are about to go bankrupt maybe they'll made something new and start the process over again
