Richie Branson's Letter To SquareSoft Makes Us Applaud
I'm really not into hip-hop but when the message resonates, it hits home.
And this will resonate for a great many older gamers out there, especially those who frequently visit PSXE.
This is a "Letter to Squaresoft" on Richie Branson's Nerd Cool album, and it aptly describes the old-school fan's feeling; i.e., that the greatness has been permanently left behind and in truth, none of us really want to call the company Square Enix. We prefer to remember it as it was, when Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger and other titles kept us transfixed and mesmerized.
Take it away, Richie.
Sorta makes you want to cry, doesn't it? As much fun as I'm having with Final Fantasy XIII-2, I know in my heart of hearts it isn't Final Fantasy. It's a great game and one I got hooked on, but it needed a different title...it just isn't among the FF franchise, as far as I'm concerned. And as for why we never got another Chrono, I'll never know. That's just ridiculous.
Thanks to Matt B. for the tip!
