Remember when there was great quality video games... not such much now money grabbers no matter if it's the latest coffin of a tony hawk game, or refusing to end the call of Duty series. Activision rightfully gets that distinctive hate for those reasons. - htoutlaws2012

8 Square Enix Square Enix Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. is a Japanese video game developer, publisher, and distribution company that is best known for its role-playing video game franchises, which include the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts role-playing game series.

I love Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy X, but if you ask me about the current state of things regarding Square Enix, its not exactly bright. I mean, look the release gap between Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts III. By the time the latter is released, we'd have had a lot of other Kingdom Hearts games that (While admittedly good) were made to explain complicated plot-holes found within the series in the time gap between KHII and KHIII. Lets also not forget Final Fantasy XV, which was released a decade after its announcement back in 2006 (Then known as "Final Fantasy Versus XIII") and the time it is taking on the Final Fantasy VII remake is noticeably long.

This company has its merits and is still making great-quality games, but its pretty clear they're money grubbers and take a boatload of time to make one game. - CrimsonShark

I'd say they're still doing great.

Final Fantasy XV was good from what I hear. They seem to be doing just fine lately. - cjWriter1997
