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.
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.
Thanks! Part III should be out toward the end of the week!
