Why is the mobile gaming market so atrocious?
Square Enix would port their old FF titles to a digital watch. I don't know how much they actually make now. Just stir the pot and collect royalties on whats already paid for. When you consider that most mobile players are texting only using silly idioms and half asleep waiting for the doctor or driving then it is the perfect platform for the mindless, joyless, pointless crap to pool up.
I've found some very legitimate and good quality games on the Android market. You just have to really dig for them, and know what to look for.
Also I have psp,psx,n64,snes and even a mame emulator and tons of games.So I don't need those crap ftp games.

Not on GameFAQs :D
DarkZV2Beta posted...They don't support their games at all, and they're cheap, lazy ports of old FF games to grab peoples' money through nostalgia.
Most of the really old stuff is closer to $10. It's only the more recent remakes that are that expensive, like FFIV and The After Years.
Squenix has a thing about pricing though. Basically, anything associated with Squaresoft must be a timeless work of art that maintains it's value perpetually, even in a competitive market that left them behind generations ago.
Their GameBoy Advance games, either were launch price for years, sometimes.

The solution to mobile gaming is that we the hardcore gaming crowd has to educate those who like casual games about all the BS practices and bad games that are out there.
It is our duty to show them what real gaming is about, do it nicely, show them how bad casual games are by comparing them to good examples of real games.
Games that won't nickel / dime the person.
Games that don't use bad business practices.
It'll be a slow fight, but the fight to convert casual players to hardcore gamers have to start somewhere.
Many of us weren't into "Hardcore" gaming at the start, but we got into for one reason or another.
And companies like Square Enix who released over priced lazy ports, well we shouldn't buy them.
Simple as that, don't support bad business practices.
Make sure you convince everybody you know who is even thinking about buying lazy ports of old games to not buy those games.
Get them to buy games on a real gaming platform, not on some generic platform like SmartPhones / Tablets
I'd rather play games on a PS Vita or 2DS then play games on a SmartPhone or Tablet
