where is the love for square i dont understand. so many greats from them.

So much horse!@#$ as well, they pretty much have copyright on the concept "generic sequel"

dude i think you are confusing generic sequel with the "style of rpg"

Each FF had different characters different leveling systems i.e. jobs vs. sphere grid(just to name 2 of many). each had a different storyline and a different worlds. the best thing your wee little statement supports is the fact that maybe they have a general template for all their rpgs and the construct all their games around their template but isnt that what most rpgs are anyway. every game they had probably used the same structure but they brought new and unique ideas to each new game which was where the brilliance was created. (except for 8 i dont reall like that one.)

if im way off then please elaborate when you say generic sequel.

I could but if you dont see at all what I'm talking about I dont think there's any point. Lets just say that every recent game in that series is a plagiarism of the ones before them in pretty much every aspect except for graphics. And it's not just Squaresoft, the same goes for all japanese rpg developers. Their time of glory is over because they have the inability to come up with fresh new ideas. I mean, with a few exceptions the J-RPG's look exactly the same now as they did over 20 years ago..

..not to mention all the crappy FF-spinoffs they put out nowadays.
I wonder why there are so many Bioware fanboys. Dragon Age looks nice, but the combat is not smooth at all.
Ok, I'll throw in my opinion

1. Crystal Dynamics (Legacy of Kain, not !@#$ing tomb raider)
2. Blizzard (Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, The Lost Vikings, etc...)
3. Valve (Half-Life and Portal
4. Bethesda (Fallout and Elder Scrolls
5. Rocksteady (Batman)
In no particular order:

Blizzard (you know)
From Software (Demon's Souls/Dark Souls/King's Field)
Atlus JP (Shin Megami Tensei, Catherine, Trauma Center, Etrian Odyssey)
Looking Glass (Thief, System Shock - R.I.P.)
Retro Studios (Metroid Prime series)

Hard to choose, and there are others that could probably just as easily qualify for this list.
