Urge to rant rising...
Put me under the "f--- this" category, or rather, the "f--- Square" category. I liked Advent Children, appreciate a portable FFV, and bits and pieces of KH2 were pretty fun, but those aside the company hasn't put out original and/or worthwhile in the last five years. The talent is gone from the company, and most of what remains spends their time either killing heretofore respected brands or exhuming corpses and changing the tux.
Then again, why shouldn't they? Enix has shown that there's money and exposure to be had simply trading on Square's name to this point. Hell, we're getting the fourth versions of FF1, 2, and 4 within six years, and STILL there are people willing to buy, even if for the first time since WonderSwan you'll have to pay for 1 & 2 individually. But it'll all be worth it when they put 1 & 2 3D on the DS (with two new job classes in the first and one extra dungeon in the second) in 2009, won't it?
For my part, though, I'm done. Too many other companies are putting out perfectly awesome RPGs these days to be supporting this sort of laziness any further. f--- this, and f--- Square.
