Geeksnack: As videogame consoles have become more powerful, capable of creating breathtaking worlds with the latest graphics, a great number of people have wanted to see FF VII be remade for these new systems. And believe it or not, Square Enix has heard your prayers and have delivered.
But what does this mean for people like myself who didn’t grow up with the original title; the people that haven’t had the chance or desire to even touch the game. In some weird way, this might just be the incentive we need to actually give it a shot. Purists will probably say that we should play the original first so that we know what’s changed but why should we? It might not have the same effect in 2015 as it did in 1997. At the time, that game was modern, just like how the remake will be modern to us gamers of today. It won’t be the exact same experience but create the same senses and feelings.
