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.


instead the keep doing final fantasy 13 which people hate right now.


you do realize the FF13 trilogy is actually very popular right?
just because the vocal minority that is GFAQS hates it doesn't mean everyone does.

I look at this thread and I see that everything TC posted in the original post is accurate. It is, without a doubt, the most milked franchise. You guys can keep posting other franchises, but having read through all of them, none of them are accurate.

The problem here is that you all seem to be taking offense. There's nothing wrong with them milking Pokemon. They're making money hand over fist and giving gamers and collectors things they thoroughly enjoy enough to spend all of the money on it. It's win-win for everyone but those few of us who would like to see the games improve beyond what we've seen a dozen times.


tl;dr: He's right. That doesn't have to be a bad thing.

No I dont think Pokemon is the most milked game franchise.

The Mario games I really do think they've been milked enough where its the same thing over and over.

I love Pokemon as much as the next guy, but saying that it "sells a lot" and a "lot of people love it"is a good argument is silly. Just look at CoD.

Popular =/= Good
Look at the Twilight saga.

And I personally wasn't swayed by Gfaqs when it came to me hating FF13. It kinda just stinks. It's not the worst FF game (that title goes to FF14. Seriously, every time you mention FF14, a homeless puppy doesn't get adopted), but it's not good either. The linearity, Hope, the wasted opportunity, it all makes me kinda hate the game.

I don't think it is milked more than any other franchise, but I do wish they would come up with a new main story for once. Everyone already knows how Pokemon X & Y are going to play out...Gym Leaders, Elite Four, Pokemon Champion.
