Squaresoft and Enix were originally rivals, known for putting out some of the best JRPGs of all time. Watch Mojo has selected the best Square Enix video games of all time, but have also included games from before the merger of the two companies.
Seriously? No Parasite Eve? Xenogears is in honorable mention?? No Chrono Cross even at honorable mention??? Also putting Kingdom Hearts 1 and not Kingdom Heart 2 is just bad because KH2 was better in every single aspect. And i do mean it, Every Single Aspect! Also not mentioning the masterpiece Life Is Strange at all is just wrong. I have seen much better lists.
Xenogears was unfinished. The second disk was bad. I LOVED the first disk. But second brings it down. I mean,m personally, I didn't mind to much, but objectively, there's no way you can let that slide. KH1 was superior to 2, the combat in 1...was manual. The combat isn 2 had the magic 'action' button. And took out manual dodge. Sure the camera wasn't as good, but the combat simply was much better. The previous games, bbs and ddd have combined 1 and 2 for better combat anyway. Parasite eve is good too(at least should be honorable mention). But its contending with all these other games.
One game per series isn't a smart or accurate way to do this. * Some games in a series are much better than others and some game series like FF & Dragon Quest have multiple good games that could be in the top 10. * This is one of those everybody gets a trophy lists where even a bad game makes it because of the "only one per series" rule.
Hoffmann's Top Ten Square(Enix) Games: Xenogears - Loving every bit of this masterpiece. Final Fantasy VI Kingdom Hearts - fantastic storytelling Final Fantasy VII - one of the best battle systems in jrpgs Final Fantasy IX Final Fantasy VIII Chrono Trigger Bushido Blade - First great and a bit realistic samurai game ever. Secret of Mana Parasite Eve - This game proved that Square can do Horror themed games as well The next 10 would be: Tobal No 2 - that this excellent fighting game never left Japan was and is a crime. Vagrant Story - Where is the sequel? Kingdom Hearts II Final Fantasy X Chrono Cross Chocobo Racing - Where is the sequel? #2 SaGa Frontier II - Some of the most beautiful 2d graphics I have seen Final Fantasy Tactics Final Fantasy XII Einhänder - Square was great at trying out different game genre's in the late nineties.
Were Parasite Eve 2 and The 3rd Birthday any good? I played PE1 but never got around to playing the sequels.
Never played the 3rd one either but did not like the 2nd as much as the first one
I hated The 3rd Birthday, but really enjoyed Parasite Eve 2. It's more action-oriented than PE1 and was obviously influenced by the Resident Evil games, but I still had a lot of fun with it.
watchmojo CLEARLY hates Parasite Eve , been watching their content for the past 4 years and i can totally confirm that the people who work at this site has an agenda to NOT include this game whatsoever in any list even on the top blondes in gaming believe it or not even when people remind them repeatedly .
I like watch mojo's compositions + quality. Their videos are a joy to watch.
Best game was Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
Well imo there best games were when they were strictly squaresoft.. Snes-ps1 era only.. Kingdom Hearts is just......fu€King gay and it has NO place above the oldshool games period. Maybe i was just to old too enjoy kh because i was in my early 20s when it came out. I even bought it with much enthusiasm but couldnt stand the button mashing action rpg gameplay...sorry Mine would be..in no particularly order. 1.FF4 2.FF5 3.FF6 4.FF7 5.FF8(one of my least favs but better than KH) 6.FF9 7.Vagrant Story 8.Chrono Cross/trigger 9.Parasite eve 10.Xenogears I didnt put fftactics on the list simply because i think Tactics Ogre is better...
