Why Square Makes the Best-Selling RPGs

Whether you love or hate Square, you have to admit that they pretty much have the RPG market cornered. Some people claim that it is because they spend the most money on their games. Others say that it's because Square RPG's have the best writers or artists. I think that it's really a bit more simple. What makes Square's games the best available RPGs(and arguably the best games) out there is that they break the rules. Square isn't afraid to spend allot of money on a game. They're ready to hire professional artists and composers. They make the best story possible and don't worry whether it is too complicated or whether it will offend anyone(Xenogears for instance). Name any other game where a character has committed suicide.

If you look and Square's games, they stand out in any genre. People don't think of Squares games as just being RPGs. Before FF7, no one would have thought that an RPG could become the best selling game in the world. Before Xenogears, no one would have thought a game could delve into such deep religious issues. I think that other companies should share Squares attitude. Maybe if they did, I would finally buy a non-Square RPG.
