If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p

As confusing as the OP is, i think i understand what hes saying.

Even though the new GOW is quite a bit different from previous entries, its still GOW at its core.

You really can't say that about FF, its so far fron where the series started that they really share nothing outside of the name.

Basically.

Square Enix divided its fanbase with its constant changes in every number. Square Enix never really ever cultivated a fanbase of similar passion. It's always about attaining new ones and losing some fans in the process.

That's what I call alienation.

GoW on the other hand besides the new combat system... It's still GoW and has a chance to expand on more players because of the new direction of the series. Kratos being there held up the new take and that's the reason nobody but the hack and slash fans are alienated by the changes.

That's what I'm saying why Square Enix needs to go back to its FF roots in order to appeal to fans of old FFesque games because of how divided the fanbase is. People loves nostalgia and maybe that is the cure to unify the fanbase once again. Just saying.

I don't get how God of War proves what you're saying.God of War PS4 is a good bit different from the games we got on PS2/3 and PSP.

Oh ok, the OP should just copy and past this and post it as the OP. Makes way more sense.

It's similar.

 

There is a change of combat system in GoW which is similar to FF change to action rpg etc(whatever it is).

 

The difference is GoW is upping everything in all facets including the story and there is an iconic character you recognize in the new game. Final fantasy however does everything wrong by showcasing nothing recognizable from the series but chocobos, airships, magical monsters, different worlds, confusing lores and constant changes in battle systems. That's basically enough changes that could last a lifetime for most games. lol

, they just have to keep the final fantasy theme alive that we all come to love. God of war may have change to Norse myth and the combat system is now different but it's still God of War with a better story and less rage!

maybe, just maybe.... you should actually define what this means.
