Is it just me or is Square-Enix retarded regarding FF7?
I was just thinking about this after I looked at the latest Crisis Core update (a FF7 prequel that is just taking forever to get out). Back before Advent Children was released, Squeenix was promising everything under the sun with their "Compilation of Final Fantasy 7". Hell, when Squeenix showed that FF7 PS3 tech demo at e3, the world had a simultaneous orgasm.
Here we are a few years later and what do we have? A FF7 cell phone game (gay), Dirge of Cerberus (wtf?), Advent Children (the anime companion clip was arguably more entertaining), and the infinitely delayed Crisis Core (???). What I don't get is why Squeenix thinks its cool to rehash FF1-6 + Tactics five million times but absolutely refuses to ether remake FF7 (like everyone wants) or give us a true honest to god sequel (which everyone wants)? Do they not like money? Just remaking FF7 would probably break every videogame selling record on the books alone...
Meh. End rant

I think Square-Enix has had the worse downfall in terms of the quality of their games of any gaming company ever. Before the merge, both square and enix made great games, and now all they make are mediocre sequels and mediocre ports (seriously ff6 advance is terrible). What happened? Did they lose their talent and their sense? Its obvious now that they are milking the Star Ocean and FF brandnames and thats all they are doing.
