    They fricked up the FF mainline games, Kingdom Hearts and the FF7 remakes. They've had so many chances to redeem themselves after the downward spiral started, but keep making bafflingly moronic choices and awful games. I don't hate them, but they honestly deserve nothing but scorn. If they don't turn this shit around very soon they must surely be utterly fricked as a company. I think the first step would be to fire Nomura.

    They 100% do. Squaresoft sold all of its IPs and resources to Enix. Enix then proceeded to gut Squaresoft, while also spending years financially restructuring (they were basically broke after the sale). It took decades for them to become financially sound again, but what did they do? Released/published flop after flop.

        Like the level that is supposed to be a FF15 reference. I say supposed because it didn't feel like it came from FF15 at all

          bro this is coming out of FF7R where everything was dragged out to the extremes, which had 30 minute long segments that take control away from you and lock you into a torturously slow walking animation where you can't do anything (this slow movement lock happens every few seconds in every chapter), where the level design is just stretched out hallways with zero effort or content, purely for padding.
          Modern FF standards were so insanely low, The contrast improvement of FF Origin is monumental.

        Stranger of paradise is a really good game, and while people like the dub it's full of localizations. The jap script is good and while I don't hate the english version. They really changed a lot of things. I really wish more people bought it, but I'm on this camp since I didn't want to pay for a game on epic and the initial advertising was really off putting. I didn't pick it up until it hit steam.

      It feels like that one statement YoshiP said about "Only the KH team can do good gameplay" rings true

      I mean the FF16 people had to get the DMC5 guy to help with their game
      FF15 had two problems, a shit engine that can't do gameplay (as seen by the KH3 team going from Luminous to Unreal) and a casual pandering director. Even with the director removed for Forspoken, the gameplay still sucked major ass in the demo

Back in the day they pumped out classic after classic with the best music, best art direction, taking chances on making games with experimental gameplay and themes. It's so cookie-cutter,corporate focus group, lowest common denominator bullshit. Nothing is a labor of love. Nothing has it's own identity. Nothing has anything to say. Besides "buy me" anyway.

      With how well the REmakes did, and now Silent Hill etc, it seems crazy how they haven't done a remake for Parasite Eve series to test the waters.

        I'm not inherently against remakes, but it all depends on the studios involved and the IP itself. The REmakes work because RE at it's best taps into the kind of stuff that makes B-Horror movies work. It isn't meant to be dissected for themes or symbolism. The Silent Hill 2 remake looks like a parody of itself. Bloober Team have yet to make a good game and Konami just don't care about the integrity of the IP. It's going to be a disaster.

      This is true. I've tried Vagrant Story last week and the intro had better cinematography and direction than most games from squeenix show over the course of 50+ hours.

      FF7R is so cringey I consider it an unwatchable crime against humanity.
      but basically in old final fantasy even up to X there were some sincere moments that showed passion and humanity.
      The monsters, environments, and character designs were pretty good too.. along with the music.
