An opinion piece on why a Final Fantasy VII remake may not be the best idea. Hot on the heels of Square Enix's recent reveal "controversy," we examine whether a remake of "quite possibly the greatest game ever made" is what we really want.
Well, "waiting" would mean something was announced or going to happen. I don't understand why you want a remake anyway. Something will NEVER be better than the original piece, because you have your memories, enjoyments, experiences with the original game. My top 1 game of all time is Ocarina of Time. Would I love a remake, NO, nothing would never be the same as the original! If you are a true fan you don't wait for remakes, you treasure the original!! Shame on you!!
Thank you. All these people begging for a remake are going to be the first to complain about how they ruined the game. Zelda or Final Fantasy would have such drastic changes, mostly for the better, because the developers will be able to overcome a lot of the restrictions they had back then. With Final Fantasy a lot of the in betweens will have voice acting, which naturally any entitled gamer is never happy with so "game ruined" as well as being turned into cutscenes. It won't be the same game that everyone remembers like you said and I don't think they understand that.
i'm really looking forward to FF7 HD on PS4. it's a massive announcement for me. As i said many times before, SE never said they were making FF7 remake. It was a tech demo to showcase PS3 power, exactly the same thing they did with FF6 on N64 as a tech demo. Why isn't everyone crying for FF6 3D on N64? Can't wait for FF7 in HD (did i already say it?)
Maybe SE should just make the original game available for download and leave it at that. And the same should apply for XIII and IX, I'd leap at the chance to play those games again in any form.
Thank you for talking on behalf of all us gamers.. /sarcasm... If they want a remake, GIVE THEM A FREAKING REMAKE!!
"My top 1 game of all time is Ocarina of Time. Would I love a remake, NO, nothing would never be the same as the original!" Ocarina of Time 3D is even better than the original.
Here's the reason why, on a business standard, they should remake FFVII. It has been given praise as the best Final Fantasy ever. Years have passed and, well, Final Fantasy's install base kind-of dwindled with the XIII trilogy. If Square Enix were to reintroduce FFVII without the outdated graphics and art design, it would appeal to newer audiences and rekindle Final Fantasy's audience. It's rubbish for Square Enix to say "we don't have the budget" because they were able to release the MMO Final Fantasy XIV, recall it, then completely rebuild it from the ground-up as A Realm Reborn. They have the money. They just don't want to make the investment.
I'm totally down for the original again, my question though, are trophies now included in the ps4 version?
More like stop buying their products and see if SE laughs then. I have no problem leaving my money in the bank.
SE has stated dozens of times that they have no interest in remaking the game and will consider it if a Final Fantasy title can out sell it. So please if you insist on keeping your money in the bank because you are pretending they are criminals than don't keep crying when they don't remake your game.
A remake could easily happen - why would SE not want free money? The sticking point is that Sony want it exclusive as they're the publisher, SE want multiplatform.
I don't like remakes; old games are... old. It's part of the charm; but in the case of VII it really needs to improve the combat: sloooow
Thats what made this game so great. I hated the battle system for ffxiii and i do not like the new system for FF15. To me FF15 cant identify itself an RPG game or an Action game.
I hate 13 too. I don't want a different combat system, but make it faster
Never say never but ultimately, I think most of us fans realize that it's extremely unrealistic and the cost it would cost to make would make it a huge gamble. Still, that doesn't mean we deserved to get trolled so hard either.
What's the saying, "Fool me once, shame on you (2006 PS3 tech demo). Fool me twice, shame on me" (for getting hyped at seeing the FFVII logo at PSX and actually believing that a FFVII remake was in the works until the troll opened his mouth!)
That's not their fault at all that you don't know what a tech demo is and expect them to hand you the world on a silver platter instead of just shutting your entitled mouth up and listening. Worst part is you thought a TECH DEMO was a reveal trailer....after they said it was a tech demo, a demonstration of the new tech...nothing more.
Easy, christ! I thought it was a reveal trailer until the words "Technical Demonstration for PlayStation 3" came up under the logo. It *looked* like it was going to be a reveal, I know nothing was ever stated!
Just watched the Tech Demo since I have never seen it before, and I agree with everyone that wants a remake. I will concede that part of the original charm is due to the old graphics and the way the game played back in the ps1 days, but bring Final Fantasy 7 to a new generation with a semi-new style. Don't change the story much unless there is gonna be something added. Just add new bosses and monsters to fight
They teased it with PS3 tech demo They teased it with Advent Children and all FF VII compilation (Before Criris, Crisis Core, and Dirge of Cerberus) and now they teased it again on PSX So maybe i will follow the author advice to stop waiting for FF VII remake. Not to mention SE isn't the same company like Squaresoft. There's a big chance SE will make a big mess if they decided to remake FF VII.
How bout we let the gamers choose what they want. If you're the type of gamers that dont want a remake. You can still relive the old school FF7, your experience with the game back in 1997 would never be tarnished because the old game still exist and still playable. For me, I would love to see a great classic be updated with current graphics. I dont mind the minor changes in remakes as long as the core of the game is still there (battle system, story, characters...). I dont mind them combining the Crisis core storyline into the game as well to make it one single game. However, I want them to remove the cross dressing scene in FF7. That did nothing for the story really. I'm pretty sure SE can think of some other ways to save Tifa and Aeris.
I do agree, one of the things that makes FFVII my favorite game is nostalgia and that extends to the technical achievement it was back in 1997. Ever notice when they modify something it tends to piss off half the fans? I think that would happen with a remake, nevertheless I would like to see a current rendition; even if it sucks. The only Remake that has completely floored me has been the 2002 Gamecube remake of Resident Evil. But that my friend was a labor of love from the original creators (not other people, who would make it happen)
REmake was definitely a game remake done right. It was surperb! Definitely in my top 5 RE games.
