How to Remake Final Fantasy VII

IGN - It started with the one of the greatest teases in gaming history. The "Technical Demo for PS3" that debuted during Sony's E3 press conference in 2005 instilled the RPG community with an insatiable yearning for a Final Fantasy VII remake. A remake that Square-Enix never prioritized, nor officially confirmed. (Final Fantasy VII, PS2, PS3)

What the hell...? That Mike Pereira guy wanted them to ditch Jenova to streamline the plot? That would be a travesty, Jenova was one of the most amazing things about the game to me when I was younger. Always thought it was creepy/epic in a way... With every boss fight being a different version as it progressed into its Absolute form.

Why don't we just focus on Versus XIII, Kingdom Hearts III, and Final Fantasy XV.
Snookies12  +   716d ago
Dang... I want to disagree with that, simply because I would die of happiness with the reveal of an FFVII remake. However, you're right... Versus XIII and KHIII at least need to be the main focus right now. They're both easily the most promising games Square has had in a long time. Not quite sure on XV just yet, but we'll see what they do with it.

If the rumours about XV are true based on the source below, I am equally excited for it too. Ito's Team (VI, IX & XII) have had some great ideas and XII showed a lot of potential. I'm also excited to see where they can take their ideas this generation.

despite all the love FFVII gets, i personally couldnt stand the game. read cutscenes/dialogue for 25 mins, run for a few mins, read another 20 mins of dialogue, then turn based combat. not my cup of tea at all.

nostalgia gets the better of lots of people in regards to FFVII especially.

That is ALL Final Fantasy games, and nostalgia has nothing to do with it. People just want to play it in a new light. If they really wanted nostalgia then they would play the the old one.

The emo characters got to me, preferred vi. Overall still a good game, and the first console RPG to get a good marketing push in north america.

What emo characters are you talking about? I sure don't remember any in FFVII.

he is repeating what other ignorant people who didn't play ffVII say.
BitbyDeath  +   716d ago
So i guess you don't like games like Mass Effect either then or is that ok since it's on Xbox?
kevnb  +   716d ago
Don't remake it, it won't be the same with new graphics.
Cirran  +   716d ago
If they remake it Barret better keep his box arms D;<

Step 1: Don't.

Step 2: Finish Versus XIII already!
trenso1  +   716d ago
finish versus XIII then move on to KHIII. next fix up ff XIV/make XV, once all of those are our of the way. Then i can see FFVII remake possible but right now its not.

FF7 REMAKE is for the PS4, we have to wait another couple of years 4-7 years
