What Game Maker Needs A "Reboot?"
Reboots have become quite popular this generation. We'll see two in the first quarter of next year; Devil May Cry ("DMC") and Tomb Raider.
But what game producer needs a "reboot?" Which video game company needs to reinvent itself most? Which is in dire need of a makeover? Which needs a return to former glory with the help of either a complete overhaul, or a reminder of what initially made their products great? Which needs a big ol' wake-up call?
For me, it's a no-brainer. Square Enix lost its way long ago and to date, there isn't a glimmer of the company that used to be Squaresoft (or Enix, for that matter). Granted, the Square Enix name is on the box of quite a few great titles this generation, but as far as games they make internally and the vaunted Final Fantasy franchise, things have gone terribly awry. In fact, now that I'm thinking about it, Final Fantasy is in dire need of a reboot as well. There may be no fixing it now, as Square Enix seems hell-bent on utterly destroying what that award-winning franchise once was but hey, one can hope. Hope against hope, I'm sure, but whatever.
I'm sure others have different answers, though. Which game company would you most like to see get "rebooted?"
