I would not say they have run out of talent. I think part of it has to do with everyone's high expectations of them. A lot of people prefer their older games. There is nothing wrong with that, although it is unfair to translate their old games being better equals their new games being bad.

We get the idea, you're not happy with SE nowadays. That doesn't have to be what every post of your's revolves around though!

doesnt the team that worked on chrono cross work only on mmo's now? i could see how that would be a problem for some of you. i think the people that started with the older FF's like 4 and 6 are just looking for nostalgia and put those games on a pedastool they dont deserve to be on.

FF4 and 6 were fantastic games.  They deserve almost every accolade they've been given.  Even if you don't personally LIKE them you have to at least admit they were huge steps forward for the genre in several ways.

FF4 Defined traditional JRPGs period. It doesn't hold up as well today, but it's so good that it's still playable and enjoyable.

FF6 polished the formula to perfection. In NO OTHER Snes RPG have I felt such emotion as I felt playing FF6. Hell, FF6 had more emotion than Final Fantasy 13. The Opera scene.. The Train leaving.. holy shit it gives me chills even today. That game was a god damn masterpiece..

I've never understood why people liked the Opera scene so much in FF6.  Personally, it was my low point of the game, there wasn't a whole lot going on and having to remember all those lines was difficult for me at age 7.  Even the battle with Ultros at the end was kind of sub-par for an Ultros battle.

Jesus, can you flog this dead horse any further? Let's discuss the merits and missteps of FFVII while we're at it. Honestly, isn't there anything more interesting afoot? Nobody's discussed Harvest Moon in ages  :)

I liked it.  I thought the song was incredible; had the feel of an opera, and (especially for SNES) it was well done.  The game still tried to keep the scene a bit action packed by having you save the star-performer.  The lines weren't too, too hard (age 7, yeah, it's a different story; I wrote the entire scene out when I was that young, afraid to fail haha), but the wrong choices stood out (I think its like between "oh my hero" or "prince ralse").

I thought the scene meshed nicely into the setting and lore of the game; the game has fairly rich environments, Jidoor is an artsy town; the music is brilliant, the characters are fun, yada yada yada.
