Square Enix Announcement Not Shocking

The internet gets a sad but necessary reminder not to overhype things. The big Square Enix USA announcement game, as predicted, was not the new game so many had convinced themselves it would be.

Whoa, I like rpgland and all, but I really hope they're crap this time.
This and versus xiii not @ e3 would really give it to me.

Besides, that FF title sounds like a crappy wii spinoff, I'm good.

as lame as Namco Bandai in this generation.

They could amaze us fairly easy: New Chrono Cross,Parasite Eve for HD consoles (360/PS3), Kingdom Hearts Sequel (360/PS3), Valkyrie Profile, The World Ends With You Sequel, Dragon Quest outside DS (360/PS3)

But no instead they decide to hype a useless tittle that almost everybody doesnt care. Seriously Square couldn't be more lame in this generation /facepalm

True. They overhype every little piece they produce, they spew BS(30 years of FF7 remaking, western gamers like only macho protagonists and the list goes on) and their ridiculous take on pretty much everything(RPGs don't need storylines, rehashing titles, new and original games aren't great)...

The Square we loved and followed is no more.

I would shed tears of joy should another chrono game ever be annonced. It may be strange, but amazing as Chrono Trigger was, and it was so very amazing, Chrono Cross may very well be my most favorite game of all time.

The only thing that Squeenix could do to shock me is release a good game

I am getting sick of them thinking games like that are gonna be huge in the minds of fans. I thought the announcement of a re-release of SaGa (Final Fantasy Legends for those who don't know) was bigger personally. I honestly can't wait for the re-release of that classic.

Exactly. SE is sitting on a potential gold mine, and somehow they squander it every step of the way. Every game you mentioned, right down to a FFVII remake, things the dedicated fans SquareSoft earned want very badly, and would go ape shît over, they let collect dust on the shelf. Again, it's squandered potential by a company that has become completely out of touch with it's audience, and that really blows for us.

How does SE get so wrong, what SquareSoft had perfected? Honestly, the blueprints were already laid out, the fans were happy, great original games were being made, games that are now classics... the format worked. This is a classic example of 'fixin it, when it ain't broke'... See kids, they're clichés for a reason.
