In their latest Top 10 list, GamerU steps away from Square Enix's most popular video game series: Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest, and of course, Final Fantasy, and instead focuses on the many other amazing games they'e created over the years.
No Parasite Eve? No Final Fantasy?? No Kingdom Hearts??? Come on, those 3 franchises were masterpieces. And most of them deserve a spot on top 10. Overall this looks like an awesome list. I never played Radiata Story, is it really that good? And sheesh, 150 recruitable characters. And i thought Chrono Cross's 45 playable characters were alot. And they cant make you play with 4 party members in FFXV. Thats honestly disappointing.
Actually DarkOcelet the article chose titles that weren't the obvious choices like FF & Kingdom Hearts. It lists the other 'lesser' known franchises that Square has in its library. I totally agree with their list actually. Valkyrie Profile, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, all deserve to be on the list. I agree that Parasite Eve should be on the list. Other games i would add would be Einhander, Drakengard, Star Ocean, to name a few.
But the author stated the top 10 SE games overall. So FF/KH/PE should have been there. But tbh SE has many masterpieces. So 10 games is little. And while The Last Remnant wasnt the best game because of the damn framerate and hiccups issues, it was pretty good too.
And not one Dragon Quest?
Lol, yeah i noticed that too but forgot about it. DQVIII should have been in the top 3 easily.
i dream some day we will see vagrant story and parasite eve ( i miss the second one ) . these two game is a masterpiece .
I loved Radiata Stories.
Dragon Quest is hardly a "popular title" in the US.
Was Parasite Eve popular? Was Dragon Quest? Wasnt Chrono Trigger the most popular title of SE after FFVII??? LOL! Nice stealth edit hahaha.
No Dragon Quest at all ?
Are we distinguishing between Square Enix and Squaresoft? Secret Of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV/VI/VII/IX/X, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Super Mario RPG
Needs Brave Fencer Musashi, Final Fantasy 7-10 and Tactics
I played all of the games in the list, but only 3 were worthy of being finished: Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana and Bravely Default. The rest of them were either not that good, or not fun or interesting enough, and I didn't bother to finish them. Specially Super Mario RPG, characters like Mallow and Geno killed the game for me - I still don't understand why so many people beg for Geno to be in Smash Bros.
title should be "Best Title SE other than FF,DQ and KH"
Chrono Trigger, Parasite Eve, and Final Fantasy Tactics deserve a mention.
my top ten Final Fantasy VIII Chrono Trigger The World End With You Bravely Default Super Mario RPG (Sorta counts) Final Fantasy IV DS Final Fantasy X Final Fantasy IX Just Cause 2 Tomb Raider (2013)
For those of you asking for games from the Final Fantasy, Dragon quest, and Kingdom Hearts series, the author clearly states in the first paragraph that he excluded games from those 3 series. Now that makes the title incorrect, but at least it was specified in the article. Anyways 10 games would have been too little if those 3 series were included.
