      It's not hard because Square Enix's games are complete shit.

      >Retained most of its talent since the early 90s
      No they didn't. Not even close. They started losing staff during the NES era.
      Akira Kitamura (mega man director) and Shinichi Yoshimoto (designer on strider and ghouls n ghosts) left to join Takeru for eg.
      What about Clover/Platinum games? That was all ex capcom staff.
      Inti Creates is all ex capcom staff

      etc

      It's worth noting that Square tried all of this, and failed at everything.
      Talent retention is non-existent, the only old school FF guy still in the company is easily the worst one (Nomura).
      Their attempt at developing a modern engine was used in two games and then the studio was shuttered and they're using Unreal now.
      They squandered their long history in the business by remaining willfully blind to the ways it's been changing and refusing to adapt.
      Burned all the good will away from their beloved franchises even as they tried the ultimate nostalgia move (FF7 remake) to salvage it.
      And they seem to have some kind of disease where they only pick the worst possible titles to release as multiplats, including Stranger of Paradise, Neo TWEWY and fricking Forspoken. Meanwhile titles that could maybe make some money on brand recognition if they reached a larger audience are sold as exclusives because the company needs the extra funding for their massively inflated budgets; when they eventually do go multiplat they're old news, and sell a fraction of what they would have if it had been a simultaneous release (and that's when they don't throw it at Epic for another six months of exclusivity either).
      Square is ran and staffed by morons.
      Oh, and their financial guys are moronic too. The Embracer deal, investing in NFTs to this day, hiring and staffing an internal censorship bureau, they piss away money they don't have on shit they don't profit from.

        NEO had bad timing and no advertising. It had an audience to work with, the people who played the OG on DS. Even then, the game was distinct enough that new players wouldn’t get lost if they jumped straight into the new one.

    Capcom keeps to a formula with their games. Square constantly mixes up their gameplay, for better or worse.

    Capcom killed all of their smaller games and now just rehashes a handful of IPs that are guaranteed to sell. These IPs are also not massive AAA open world bloated nonsense so the budgets are doubtless much lower than what other companies are putting out. Plus Capcom has much better game designers than Square.

    Capcom goes through cycles of competency and moronation, as opposed to Square which was competent 20 years ago and has been on a downward spiral of moronation ever since.
    So Capcom is successful because there's always a fresh memory of when they were good to carry you through the half-decade of moronation that inevitably follows. Most people posting on Ganker aren't old enough to even remember a time when Square made good games.

          Agree 100%. They started doing the face scanning for Resident Evil 2 remake and that was very successful so I guess they just ran with it. It doesn't look bad necessarily besides a few examples, but I think the anime aesthetic looks best for DMC

            Yeah DMC should never be realistic, that's what's off about 5. The way things look and the feel of the cutscenes and story in general just doesn't feel like DMC. I realize I'm a minority in that opinion though.

    Better games. That's pretty much it. That one GAAS game with mecha dinos was the only real stinker they had in the last ten years, meanwhile, just about everything Square Enix makes is a stinker. Has been that way since the merger. The only decent final fantasy game they've been able to make in two decades is FFXIV, and they even managed to frick that one up on their first try too. Square Enix is easily the most incompetent dev in Japan. Not even Sega is this bad and out of touch.

    Capcom keeps to their games and improves on them.

    Square surprisingly ignores everyone and just creates something new that everyone hates. They had FF7 which is literally a golden goose for Square, and then they decided to change the entire story thereby losing the entire fanbase.

    The megaman scammer guy was in the right. The future is west but not in the way he envisioned. They still needed some jap spice to these games.

    Also, consoles apart from shithc are dead in japland it's mobile gacha shit now so no real point in appealing to those people. It's probably why they settled on just scannign everything everyone in the west prefers hyper realistic graphicsp. Stylized models just don't look too good with realistic visuals. MGSV TPP did it a slightly better way, they scanned people but edited the meshes to match the OG models closer.
