<font color=#CCCCFF>EDIT 22:59, December 18, 2012 (UTC):</font> Now that a TWEWY sequel is all but confirmed, all I can say now is this:

Finish XIV and Versus XIII. Those are the main priorities. Make sure Dragon Quest X doesn't suck. (I won't buy it anyway, even if they did release it on NA. I won't buy an online game if it means monthly fees, even if the Alchemy system from IX is there.) Make that TWEWY sequel. Then after all of this, focus on KHIII. I guess a few HD remakes and ports will occur here and there. (FFV 3DS please. VI MIGHT be better on Vita, but as a Nintendo fan...you get the idea.)

Oh, and SOMETHING good for Wii U...and I don't mean Crystal Chronicles. Kill that piece of Magikarp.

|text=I would outright stop making any Final Fantasy games and focus the company's attention on things that actually have a future. Don't get me wrong, I love Final Fantasy, but I don't even know if you can call it that any more. When Sakaguchi left halfway through Final Fantasy X, the company just couldn't reach that standard that VI through to X raised the series to.<br>

  +
Not only that, but Square Enix is wasting more time on pumping out mediocre games or spin offs that, yes, makes them a lot of money - but overall they could have been spending their time on improving other things like Kingdom Hearts rather than flogging the dead horse of Final Fantasy. If they stopped making Final Fantasy games they'd still make a crapload of money from selling merchandise anyway. Take Star Wars for example; the last movie was made seven years ago and George Lucas is still rolling in cash.}}

*Keep the company safe financially by '''releasing a bunch of terrible FFVII sequel-minigames and remake'''. Minigames don't take long to make, but if they're heavy on advertising they can bring in some good cash. Never mind the fact that they will be terrible, it means nothing.

If I owned Square Enix... Well, first of all, I would grow insane because, well, I own SE, the creator of my childhood. Secondly, I would create a Final Fantasy XV, and it would be a return to the franchise's roots, that is, it would be an RPG, not an MMORPG. The entire soundtrack would be created entirely Nobuo Uematsu. The main villain is a sociopathic, deprived, and generally depressing young boy who's mother and father were brutally slaughtered by a deranged, insane scientist who is revealed to be your father. The boy cuts off all emotional ties and then becomes nihilistic. He wanders about his old childhood home, spying on passerby for the first half of the game. He cannot be interacted with, however. By the second half, it's revealed that the boy has been the one causing trouble in the events of the game (the poisoning of the king, kidnapping of the princess, and setting your best friends house on fire, killing him and his parents, etc.). You come to his childhood home, where you find that he has taken the princess into his father's labatory (where your father worked with him) and conducted brutal experiments on her. By the time you've reached the lab itself, the princess has been reduced to nothing but a babbling, half-dead, in-coherent "human." She is then fought as the penultimate boss. You arrive to the deepest chamber of the lab, where his true motivations are revealed:
  +
  +
Your father was driven insane by the macabre experiments put on by his father. After he went insane, he murdered his father and mother and quickly retreated to that place. The boy then discovered his parent's bodies, and quickly has revenge on your father; he "experiments" on your father and successfully creates a human-robot hybrid. He then felt discovers his true purpose in life; to plunge humanity into darkness, so that humanity would feel the same pain that he felt that night. The final boss then arrives; your father. As stated before, he was mutated with machines and has grown off of negative emotions given off by humans. You heavily damage him, and he kills himself and subsequently destroys the lab, kills the boy, and you (and your party) emerge. However, you have a broken leg, and you recuperate at home. The game ends on a cliffhanger, when a hand emerges from the rubble of the antagonist's home...
  +
  +
The main character is re-nameable, and functions as a sort of Black Mage (though he can learn some later-level White Magic), and can learn Summon magic later on in an event. His best friend is named Argus, and fits the role of a Warrior. You have two younger siblings, a Black Mage and White Mage, respectively named Luneth (an obvious reference to Final Fantasy III) and Terra (Oh, I just had to.). A young thief similar to Zidane is also a playable character, though in battle, he acts like a ninja.
  +
  +
The game will feature many references to IX, because it's my favorite game, and will have the option to switch from 2D and 3D. It'll be released on the PS3, Wii, and the 3DS. It would be the darkest in the series, and considerably more intelligent.

3) Hire a couple of upcoming writers, graphic designers, and musicians, before splitting the company into at least three development teams, which will be named Chrono, Cloud and Sora (Just because they are some of the company's most famous characters). Team Cloud will start work on developing new titles in existing series such as Final Fantasy (FFXVI and XVII) and Dragon Quest (XI).Team Chrono will work on making sequels to popular games (Including the sequel to TWEWY, a new Compilation of FFVII title, a new Ivalice prequel, Bravely Second/Third and another Chrono game).Team Sora should be working on developing new intellectual properties which vary in genre (from RPGs to FPS, and most other genres in between).
