Eh I dont quite agree with that last part.
Ive been having alot of fun with ff this gen. Pretty much on par with any other I would say.
Ive been playing ff rhythm, and I have to say it moved me emotionally just to listen to all the music again. And then there was ff type zero which I finished not to long ago, which was the best action rpg I played all gen.
I do hope square japan announces some more good rpgs soon
