It's all FF8's fault.
No objections will be entertained.
But no one has broken FF8's record yet w
Because it's not "fantasy-ing" anymore

Because it's supposed to be a game for loners, then they turn it into a net game
Because of the movie version
Hooray for spending real money! →Currently
Because of 7's lame spin-off
Because it's a gross RPG
There must've been a lot of people who got alienated with 11.
I was able to enjoy until FFX, even while thinking that it didn't seem too much like the FF of old . The screenplay became atrocious from X-2 onwards.
Screenplay: Motomu Toriyama
You get the picture...
Because it's not Amano anymore
And FF15's an action game, are they looking down on us?
Because they're not releasing sequels. Hurry up with 12.
Mythril as your initial equipment?
Because when you see the promotional movies, you just say, "Beautiful graphics"----- and that's it.
CC is better.
Because they numbered them even if they didn't have to. They didn't have to do 8, 11, 12, and 14.
I liked 3's world setting
Bring back the world map and the flying ship
Because of the gross characters that don't fit the period. This was fine back in the day, but now...
When they started making realistic looking characters, they weren't able match the tempo and the themes that they had established in the past. It felt pathetic, as if watching a cosplay live action flick. Either they write the screenplay to make it seem more realistic, or make the characters look more 2-D like Tales.
I think entirely giving them voices had the opposite effect. My mom laughed when the characters shouted out their lame lines.
This is just a propaganda by people who want to say, "The games of our times are better!", and just criticize Nomura without even knowing the staff situation.
Nomura's character designs are good. I admit that he's got no talent as a producer, manager, and proposer, but the only ones he made while having such a high status as that while having authority was Kingdom Hearts 2 onwards and Zeroshiki.
I personally think that both FF7 and FF8 were good. The character lines which seemed too cheesy and cliche actually made them seem like humans and felt natural, and the sorrow that the Laguna arc brought was also good.
I like the atmosphere of FF15 and I have high hopes for it, but I did get a bad feeling when I saw that Nomura is credited for the base scenario. I'll get turned off if he starts dragging it on like Kingdom Hearts and start making sequels.
7 was one turning point.
From this point forward, they stopped catering to little kids.
On top of having tons of guys with ikemen host-like hairdos, 15 is a game which you don't even know if it's an RPG or not
I hope they hurry up and come out with a Jecht version of 10. Name it FF X-0.
I'm looking forward to FF15
Guys who liked the FF of old are divided in 2;
the group who likes 1-6 and the group who likes 7-10.
The former calls FF7 as "the beginning of the end".
Dragon Quest hasn't given too much emphasis on graphics, and it's still around. DQ7 was horrible, though.
DraQue also went downhill from 9 onwards
I like 12, but I know that I'm part of a minority
Serious response: Because the FF generation became older, and when they evolved the game to match the aging FF generation, they couldn't get new players anymore. The end.
I LOL'd at FF10's drama CD where Shin was revived. I really wonder why Square Enix loves adding useless stuff that destroy their series. In 10's case, it all got destroyed with 10-2, though.
They bother to change the game system every single time. I really don't get why they have to come up with new features all the time.
It doesn't have a sense of uniformity as a series anymore, and by doing that, they lose their stability.
1 was fun
I stopped at 9. I was able to confirm that it was a game where they went to the trouble of making the characters 3D which just made them irritating to the max. As they say, they're "ham". All their actions, hand movements, everything just looked gross and it really irked me. How the heck do you think I will be able to put my emotions into that one? This was the first time I absolutely loathed game characters, and this was the worst.
I don't understand it even if they make made-up words like farushi and rushi. I don't even want to try to understand it.
They put too much emphasis on graphics
If that mustache man didn't come up with a movie, he probably would've still been around. It may be titled "Final Fantasy", but no one's gonna watch it if it's totally unrelated to the FF world.
