Please, Square Enix, Don’t Cock Up the ‘Final Fantasy VII’ Remake

So much hype, and such massive potential to f*ck it all up. So, Square, listen to the fans, please.

The story is too old to be commented.

"what if many of us are recalling it differently through the hazy static of recollection?"

So many people have played it recently, and it still holds up in every way except graphically and translation-wise.

"Have our tastes grown with the industry over time? Have other RPGs like Skyrim, the Mass Effect series and The Witcher 3 set new benchmarks that cause Square's opus to pale now by comparison?"

This is a big reason why a lot of people wanted this remake. We HATE what the industry has become, and want it to get back on track. A AAA turn-based behemoth like Final Fantasy 7 can do just that.

"Does a part of you wonder just how Square Enix might – and that's a theoretical might – make some errors in the name of capturing new gamers who are perhaps unfamiliar with the original Final Fantasy VII?"

Of course. They could make it an ARPG, and eliminate the entire point of the remake.

"First up is combat. Please, Square, for the love of Barret's beard, please don't ditch the classic Active Time Battle system and sub it with some awkward real-time encounters that try to pass themselves off as tactical."

*standing ovation* Update it. Improve the PRESENTATION of the battles to make them look more natural. But, that's it.
