What impressive games besides FFXII has SE Delivered in the last 10 years ?
Pretty much everytime they touch the PSP platform something great pops out.
Dissidia (and soon Duodecim)
KH: Birth by Sleep
Crisis Core: FFVII
(soon) Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together
As already said Kingdom Hearts I and II, which were pretty **** good no matter what the haters say.
And seriously, no matter what the fanboys says FFXII was polished, fun, and impressive. Only thing pulling it down where the rabid fans.
And my personal favorite, The Last Remnant (which wasn't neither a critical or commercial success, but still a great, innovating game, just what I would expect from the 2000's SE). Edited, Dec 13th 2010 10:09am by Hyanmen
Just to add: FFXII's writing was excellent (in terms of translation and proper English) and the acting was very well done too, especially Fran and Balthier.
The pacing was good too; running around as an errand boy then getting caught up in Empire and intrigue. Battle was fun especially the gambit system albeit a bit convoluted.
Was it the best FF, no way, but it was light years ahead of XIII in most if not all aspects. It made me wonder how they thought XIII's dialog and acting could pass, when XII's was so much better.
But given the transgressions of not learning completely from FFXI, I guess it shouldn't really be surprising.
