Ah, back before 5-year development cycles, seeing "Squaresoft" on a box actually MEANT something, single-console co-op play, and no worries about firmware.

Remember PSM's lid stickers? Those were rad. I had an Eidos one featuring Ninja + Tomb Raider on my console.

I miss those days. Lately I've been wishing I could find the time to play through FF7 again, been a lot of talk about FF that's been making me long for when Square made good RPGs.

I had those stickers too BTW, I recall mine was the PSM symbol, a smiley face with an eye patch on it.

I used to buy titles just because they had the SquareSoft logo. That's literally how I found Secret of Mana. After that, I bought pretty much ALL of their games. I stopped at FFXI and haven't purchased another other than FFXIII. But that was a regretful purchase.

I agree. After the merger to form Square enix, they started to slowly but surely go downhill from there.

Great, this article got me nostalgic for my childhood. So I just got on eBay and placed a bid for some POGS! I hope you're happy.
