A look into how Square-Enix has milked Final Fantasy VII through the extended franchise.
I'll probably get a ton of disagrees for this...but pretty much EVERYTHING that came after FFVII itself was unnecessary. Even Crisis Core, while being a decent enough game, had its fair share of horrible decisions (e.g. Genesis, the whole one-wing schtick, retcons, etc.)
All this milking and the fans cant get a simple remake..... but we do get FF13-2 I guess all the towns are too hard to do in HD...
I wouldn't mind if they did some things with FF8. Mainly a prequel with Laguna or a full sequel where it takes that idea people had that Rinoa was Ultimecia, I know Square has said she isn't but it would of been a cool idea to explore on. Even if the did a side game or sequel with FF9 but no we get stuck with a sequel to one of the worst FF games ever...FF13-2
If it was up to fans it would get milked even more.
SE needs to drop the Final Fantasy name and come up with something original.
The compilations felt completly unecessary but at least Crisis Core wasnt bad. FFVII Advent Children CGI movie was entertaining (the fights were ok) to watch like 3/4 years ago but now it really feels dated.AC movie was made to produce hype amoung the FFVII fans around Japan and worldwide and then it generated haters everywhere and since they hated the movie (why they watched in first place is beyond me)they start hating/trolling the original FF7 for no good reason. Pathetic world we live in.
Giving fans what they want = 'milking'. ??
the compilation wasnt even that big. i mean ok, ff7 was awesome. advent children complete was awesome even if it was mostly fan service, crisis core is a welcomes game in the universe and one of the best psp games out. dirge of cerberus was meh but added to the story and before crisis......no one outside of japan even played that. so im not sure how this is milking.......milking = getting every last penny u can. if they were milking they wuda made ffvii-2 and made a fortune. i dont see anyone complaining that COD or halo is milked when there are far more games in one gen alone than the whole 13 years worth of ff7 games...... lmao milking = 5 games in 13 years hahahahaha wtf

WOW dude u FAIL hardcore lmao first off the final fantasy series is 24 years old, started in 1987, I mentioned the Compilation of ff7, which is what the article is about so ur horrible wrong. go away troll, shoo shoo
SE uses the FF name because they can't come up with anything original. They just tack on some Roman numerals and add versus, agito, crisis, and other words.
This Series Is Worse Than CoD At Milking, Number 1 Is Mario, Number 2 Is Pokemon, Number 3 Is Final Fantasy
