Is there a developer you once held in high esteem but not anymore

Definitely Square.

I remember when they were top dogs, and every single FF game they released was a HUGE deal, i'm talking Olympic like fandom.

Now, not so much. they're a laughing stock these days as developers. Although A Realm Reborn is a nice return to form.

Capcom and Square.

They used to be great, but Capcom became the worst company around and so very greedy, even worse than EA.

Square couldn't stop milking FFXIII and FFVII for all they're worth instead of making quality products for many years, not as bad as Capcom mind you, but they have fallen from grace.

Definitely Square. There was a point where you would see the Squaresoft logo on a game and you'd be confident in buying it blind.

I'd say Blizzard to an extent as well because they butchered Diablo 3 and destroyed what they made with Warcraft 3 in WoW, but Starcraft 2 was quite good even with some of the dumb plot decisions, so they're a mixed bag.

I am absolutely shocked the Bioware haters haven't shown up yet...

I suppose it would have to be infinity Ward for me. Not really fair since pretty much all their senior staff left, but they have fallen so much since COD4.

Neversoft, but I think they just got absorbed into Infinity Ward or something.

Konami and Capcom.

Contra, Castlevania, Gradius, Ghouls 'n' Ghosts, Maximo, Mega Man are all dead. So those two are dead to me, and couldn't care less if those companies went under.

There are other companies, but those two are my main ones.
