    They've been garbage ever since they merged. They haven't put out anything decent in years.

    Theyve put out plenty of good titles. Too bad the majority of people these days are jaded as hell.

    No, they are nowhere near where they used to be. Its just a big cash crop now. Fuck them and putting out 50 games each month. I was a diehard fan since the SNES days but after the PS1 gen they really went downhill FAST (FFX was very good but that's the only shining beacon in the shit pile). everything else since has been utter shit.

    Squaresoft ruled....Enix was always kinda "merrr". I never got into Enix games....always loved Squaresoft games. When it became SquareEnix I think Squaresoft sent over 1 team member and everyone else was Enix...and since then it's been a shit fest of games.

    :ugh:


    Yeah, lets keep remaking the same fucking games that have been out for 20 years instead of making some new with original content. And just because they are the biggest jrpg developer doesn't mean they make good games.

    And what plenty of good games have they made since 2003? Only one comes to mind, Kingdom Hearts series.

    I agree with what everyone here has said so far... except Clancer :mamoru:

    Funnily enough, I just read that Squeenix cut 200-300 jobs recently... set sail for fail!

    Enix was one of the few companies I know of that made "true" RPGs. The Dragon Quest games to me have always seemed like the most perfect models of what an RPG should be. Plus Mischief Makers is my favorite game of all time.

    The merge has only signified the union of the two best RPG developers around

    Well shit, they have 5 final fantasy games alone slated for release within the next two years.

    I do not give a crap though. Call me a fanboy, but if Squareenix releases a game chances are I will at least take a look at it.

    They might be the biggest, but right now I would say Level-5 is the best. In terms of originality and quality, they are my favorite developer going right now. Now, FFXIII could be totally awesome and swing me back into my square lovefest, but we will just have to wait and see.

    Enix made Mischief Makers? I loved that game... it was amazing. Shake shake shake!

    As much as I love to rag on Squeenix, I still love them :love:

    Kingdom Hearts was actually started back when they were still sqauresoft. Then Kingdom Hearts II was Square Enix and was less quality than the first :rofl:

    I'm looking forward to three of their games. That's about par for any major studio. :dunno:
