Well, at least you see it. FF1 and FF3's title screens are only seen partway through game play and I think that just looks crappy (maybe because we're used to seeing a title screen every time we play a game).
Yeah, they weren’t well done, but you could tell they meant to go for that. There are some games that pull it off well (hint: I’ve been on a Mass Effect binge lately), but they still have the more orthodox title screens too.
Well. Seeing it in action, it's not so terrible - kinda charming, like a really freakin' old DOS game. But it's no substitute for a real Final Fantasy logo.
Programmed by Nasir... so more like an Apple II thing.
Kinda funny how Neo Demiforce used the later Final Fantasy style, instead of actually making it look like the real Final Fantasy II logo - but I guess they'd have needed quite a color palette to pull it off. ^_^;
Square (and SE I guess) is highly indebted to whoever designed the FF4 logo. They managed to find someone who used good typography at a time when people were doing some very scary experiments with things
that you should thank your lucky stars graphic designers have now learned how to use properly. Also, amusing coincidence.
