I mean the IOS stuff and some of the crystal chronicles spin offs. Im speaking for myself obviously but I dont think many people enjoyed those spinoffs, nevertheless these little deviances hurt the brand. However I did enjoy Dissidia, that was a very good effort on their part, I think.
I also think that the crystal chronicles stuff should be a separate IP, it's doing more bad then good to the final fantasy name if you ask me.
I really like the re-releases of old final fantasy games though. I thought the Final Fantasy V ios port was commendable but I deem it as a failure because that sprite work is so bad...
Im not even speaking for the whole Final Fantasy XIII thing because I havent played the games myself and I tend to avoid judging games that I haven't played.
