Well except for their recent buy-out of Eidos and cgi-art. Other than that they've hardly been an actual gaming company for over a decade.
Personally I agree, perhaps the only game from them that I would consider a good game and not a done to death movie was Super Mario RPG, and then even with that they decided to be total dicks to nintendo, I'm not too sure about what they tried to do with the rights of mario and friends but all the new characters like Geno and Exor were pretty much snatched away from Nintendo like pulling the rug straight out from under them, I don't think they've partnered up for anything since then.

They don't even remotely fit with the Mario setting. Geno and Exor were able to exist in Mario RPG because it brought in more traditional fantasy elements in general.

If Nintendo did have the rights to those characters, they'd be horribly out of place whenever they got used.

MAYBE Mallow could stand a chance but nobody likes him, anyways.

Technically Geno was in SuperstarSaga.
But its kind of a "blink and you'll miss it moment."

It'd be easier to list what characters I don't play as. So to me, tiers had no meaning.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

One that I've disovered almost immediately, and I consider it worth posting here because I'm aware of how condescending and generalizing it sounds:

The most abundant complaints towards, and haters of, Skyward Sword as a game are the ones who just suck the most at it and either don't realize it, or are the least willing to adjust to it. I can honestly say most of TP's haters have better reasons to rag on that game than SS' do (not saying much, but did it ever have to be?).

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

How can one not be good at a Zelda game?

You can almost do it in your sleep.

It's not like it ATLUS hard.

In the past decade, yes...this is most definitely true. In the old days, Square was pretty damn cool. Making decent games with pretty cool stories and junk. Nowadays? Nah. Now its like "how angsty can we make the protagonist? How stupidly complicated can we make a battle system? How many zippers and belts can we put in character design?" No one Monolith Soft went "You guys can go eat dicks." D:<

Enix was pretty cool at one time too....

I agree, although I did find FFXII to be enjoyable, as well as The World Ends With You. Other than that, I haven't found Square Enix's games to be that enjoyable aside from remakes and ports, and games not made by SE, just published by SE.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

Square's got Radiata Stories, FFXIII

That's really all I've really enjoyed from them.

Well, maybe tactics as well.

ATLUS is the best RPG developer.

And while i'm thinking of it, I really liked Star Ocean. Also Published by Square, but made by Tri-Ace.

Tri-Ace is a great developer.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

FFXIII-2 is a huge improvement over the previous game, and i'm wiling to bet Tri-Ace had a lot to do with that.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

Although Square Enix is nothing compared to Squaresoft, I do enjoy many of their games, probably more than people would think

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

FF13 is seriously one of the worst RPGs I've ever played. I couldn't even finish it. The game practically plays itself for you (lol auto battle) the pacing was just horrible.

I thought it was so bad that I don't even take interest in the series anymore after that entry.

I don't doubt that the new one is an improvement, but KH2 was an improvement over kh1 and that game sucked too.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I liked Deus Ex Human Revolution, other than that I haven't played many recent Square-Enix games.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

That reminds me of another controversial opinion. Deus Ex and the newer Human Revolution are both extremely boring. As in, not one single engaging detail. I honestly haven't got a single idea how people could stand to play the first one, let alone get excited for a sequel.

well yeah but I didn't know we were going into some existentialist philosophy class here. of course the drama is extra paint. paint is important. some people like orange bathrooms some people like green bathrooms. I like brown bathrooms (you can probably guess why).

---------- Post added at 05:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:36 AM ----------

of course, a bathroom works without paint. but it won't cover it up when you get poo on it. Do you understand what I mean?

a video game works without music but it won't cover it up when you get poo on it.

---------- Post added at 05:43 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:37 AM ----------

whoawh let me slow down here a minute. Get this poo talk out my mouth. Okay.

What I am saying here is that just because something is unnecessary does not mean it does not have a huge affect on the finished product. the unnecessary and superfluous-to-the-ends-of-just-making-Pong components of what we get in the end, they are every bit a part of the video game as every line of code written for it. It is a part of the game. It helps set the mood and atmosphere. It is all part of the package, all part of how the developer of that game wants you to feel when you play their game.

I didn't think FF13 got good 60 hours in.
