Btw - Just be clear: I am not saying you have to l like or buy something that does not interest you, but understand how the success/failures of those games affect you own. very few things exist solely in their own box.
Yeah, I get nothing is in a box. If Square would've gone bankrupt it would have been problematic for Octopath (not impossible, game studios with half-finished games are sometimes bought as THQ-ending showed, but difficult). But the genre of the successful games is irrelevant. if Tomb Raider or FF pays the bills is irrelevant for that. And for greenlighting Octopath FFs success is also irrelevant, that is relevant for greenlighting the next FF. Relevant for greenlighting Octopath was Bravely Default.
