Top 10 Square/Square Enix Games

Gaming Union: "Square is a company that has a rich history and it's been responsible for so many excellent games since its redemption in 1987 with Final Fantasy on the NES.

Sometimes it difficult to look past the typical games when it comes to making one of these lists. After all, Final Fantasy has had such a strong impact on video games. However, Square, and by default Square Enix, has actually brought a lot more to the table." (3DS, Chrono Trigger , Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Final Fantasy VII, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Square Enix should get their game engine unified. One Game Engine for Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, Hitman. Hopefully they can Top their top games.

I understand where you're coming from, but bear in mind they are a publisher, so they have all of these studios that use different engines - and the engines area all good for different genres, look at the Cry Engine for example, Crysis, Far Cry, Sniper Ghost Warrior( I think thats what its called) all are first person.
The Naughty Dog engine - all 3rd person
all engines can be optimised for different platforms aswell, like the Unity game engine, it is mainly for mobile. Unreal engine is for console/ PC's

So as far as your comment goes, a unified engine would be great, saves time, money, resources - as long as the engine suits the requirements for the game being developed, another example:
Unreal Engine #
also used for 3rd person,
Batman Arkham Origins
Bioshock infinite
Remember Me

My list would be fully comprised of SquareSOFT RPGs.

And FF1 at the top? Give me a break. Just because it was the beginning, is no reason to give it #1. I like the game (it was the first RPG I ever played), but it doesn't belong on the list, at all.

Thinking back on it, it's pretty impressive how much they managed to get out of the FFVII series.

How can anyone forget about actraiser and actraiser2 from Enix

They need to go back and remake those awesome games. Lol make a remake of actraiser on the Deux Ex engine :P

Dragon Quest VIII hands down for me. Probably my favorite jrpg from last gen.
DVAcme  +   834d ago
I hate the fact that Squeenix has been basically taking a dump on their western studios in favor of flogging the JRPG dead horse. They actually considered Tomb Raider, a critically and financially succesful game, a failure because it sold "only" 3 million+ copies. And when they reported losses, they cut people from their western studios, the ones actually making their more critically acclaimed games lately. It infuriates me.
