My Nostalgia Button Is Broken

After years of life, love, and tears, a long-time fan is breaking up with one of his most loved series of games. (3DS, Culture, Final Fantasy, iPhone, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, Square Enix, Xbox 360)

Its not that my "Nostalgia Button" is broken, but rather that Square's gone in a different direction than I had hoped. Instead of further developing the over-world, character introduction and growth, story, they've gone towards pure glitz. Don't even think about story but rather getting games out on a regular if not yearly basis to exploit the brand.

Though apparently some like that last bit. Don't think about it.

Really. game companies should not be "given" loyalty. Brand loyalty should be earned title to title with complaints raised at a below-par flub. Gamers should not buy everything made, defending the company when they do bad and especially when it exploits. Doing so only tells them that they can. That no matter what they do they'll always be some sucker supporting them.

I will continue to support Square with their FF franchise except the MMO's.Out of all the FF games I've played FF-XIII-2 is my least interesting FF,FF-X & XIII are my favorites & I've played them all.My gripe with Square is the fact that they're taking too long to develop & put games out to play,this generation only FF-XIII with 3 parts,not counting FF-XIV,they use to put out at least 3 different FF each console life.I like the FF character Lightning but it seems the people at Square are fixated on this character as if she was a real goddess or some kind of Muse.Square seems to be making bad business decisions this generation when it comes to their JRPG development.
