ignoring MrSpacelySlate for spewing crap. final fantasy is milked alot more.


Except they actually change it up a bit.


i'm talking ports of final fantasy 1,2,3and 4


What I find funny is Square could easily profit from a FF7 port. But they don't.

Why? Because they want a FF game to be "as successful as FF7" before they remake 7.

The thing is FF13 was okay before 13-2 happened. Sure it was linear as heck, but at least it was complete.

I don't think the fact that the anime is long running has anything to do with how milked it is. But in answer to your question, no, because if it was milked, the quality of the games would dip which, in my opinion, they haven't.

Almost everything is milked in the world. If it makes a profit, it will be milked.

The question is whether it's still fun or not. In Pokemon's case, it still is for me and many other people obviously. So, I'll buy it until I get tired of it. It's that simple.

To answer your question: No.

Zelda, Mario , Final Fantasy, have all been milked equally if not more.

Also, yes the main games are similar at their core but the same can be said for halo, god of war, assassins creed, etc. that's why they have the spinoff games which offer major genre changes . Do you somehow call that milking? You should go back in time and complain about the first Mario kart game then.


Tldr: your just a troll but I felt the 5 minutes I took writing this was worth it to show how bad of a troll you are


Show the massive amount of yearly releases, spin-offs, merchandise, and TV episodes that Zelda has.

Call of Duty has rereleased the same game 6 times since 2007.

Also any sports game since they're basically the same every year and have been doing that for well over a decade. Especially ridiculous this generation, where all consoles can go online so you can just download updated rosters (which is 90% of what the new games do).
