level 5 > square enix???
I love Level 5 because I love the PL games~
I like Square because they make KH, and I love KH, but SE is kinda buggin' me lately.
As of lately, yes.

Square in recent years has chased money more then quality I think. The games have gotten more impressive visually, but their decisions have mostly been about how to make the game to sell a lot and make more money. The recent iOS game and their decision to make MMOs out of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest are evidence of this. Dragon Quest was the last old series taht still held to it's roots, but with DQ X, they've made it a Pay 2 Play MMO.
For the last 5 years or so, I've been losing faith in Square, and I've been playing since FF I and Dragon Warrior, back when the two companies were separate.
Level 5 made decent RPG's. I did not play DQ8, but I have played the Dark Clouds, and Rogue Galaxy and White Knight Chronicles. These games aside are mediocre at best (Aside from DQ8 since I did not play it. Please don't kill me).
While the more recent FF games have been rather meh...SE's history has games that will never be forgotten and that is something Level 5 cannot rival....yet.
when level 5 starts publishing their own games then they can start to be better than square enix

I'd say like most people here, currently they're lightyears ahead of Squeenix. But considering of all time, Squarenix's got some great, great games in the past and when they were seperate (Square and Enix), it was even better, IMO.
But right now, L5's miles ahead of other RPG devs, especially with NNK. Dragon Quest meets Pokemon for the freaking win.
And on a side note, Bamco's been doing well with RPGs, lately. All of my favorite RPGs this gen were all published by them, with NNK taking the cake, of course. Xillia can't come too soon, though!

Nowadays it would be even:
LJN > Square-Enix

You do know that even squeenix has relied on level 5 for dragon quest 8 and 9 right?
after the merger they aren't as good as they once were dq's are still solid though thanks level 5 :)
Correct. Square-Enix haven't produced a great game (Outside of Eidos at least) since FFXII... except for... Dragon Quest IX. Which was developed by Level 5.
SE are done. Once FFXIV bombs again they're going to be completely dependent on Eidos to survive... and how long will that last I wonder.

I havent tried ni no kuni yet so I cant deceide but I still say SE is a little ahead because of their tenure and they publsihed Hitman, Deus Ex, and the new TOmb Raider. SE's past games are only what keep it better otherwise they are going way downhill. They are milking all fo their franchises.
