The Fall of Final Fantasy Part II: A Case Study of Final Fantasy XIII

In the second entry of this mini-series about the decline of Final Fantasy, Stephen looks at how the Final Fantasy XIII saga represents the problems plaguing the franchise. (Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Square Enix, Xbox 360)

I will always contend that besides unfamiliarity with HD production and 7th console hardware, further shifting resources to understand the 360, that Square just became to full of themselves. Too lacks and exploitative of the fanbase because of how FF7-10 were accepted.

They definitely don't seem to understand how to be productive in developing current-gen (or rather, last-gen) software. I think XV is evidence enough, as is the first XIII, where they blamed the linearity on the advancement of hardware technology.
