Final Fantasy VII: A great or terrible idea?

Ask anyone who has been playing video games for a while, what their favorite game is and you are all but guaranteed to get some kind of passionate response that likely includes a few games so good they just couldn’t pick one. Likewise, if you ask that person which game they would like to see remastered or remade, they’ll likely respond with that same list. When a full blown Final Fantasy VII remake was announced recently at E3, many people felt that one of their listed items was finally on the way. As great as it sounds, though, it may actually be a terrible idea.

Trailer's got over 10 million views on Youtube. Call me crazy but I think this falls under "great".

No doubt the hype is there, and for good reason. I think what the article is essentially saying is that with such hype comes great potential for disappointment...especially as it sounds like they couldn't resist the urge to tinker!

As long as they don't do anything drastic like turning it into an action RPG, it will be great.

Honestly, the best thing they can do to please both Action RPG fans and the nostalgic fans that want the battle system to remain intact is to give an option for us to play it both ways (the FF VII port of the PC version doesn't count)

"It is important to remember that a little nostalgia goes a long way in clouding our memories. Final Fantasy VII released in the U.S. in 1997, almost twenty years ago. That is a long time in terms of technology and gaming. Things like graphics, engines and mechanics change quite a bit, which causes a bit of a dilemma."

Plenty of people have replayed it recently (myself included) and played it for the FIRST TIME recently. Everything except the graphics and translation still holds up perfectly.

Part of why we want this, is to bring that gameplay back!

While I still play Final fantasy 7 2 this day, I play the game with the thought in mind this game came out in 1997, so I just over look the games alot of the games flaws.Just because I still play the game doesn't mean I dont want the gameplay to change, If I want a blast from the 90s id play the original game, give me something fresh and something that works in todays age.

This is exactly why I keep telling you guys to grow up. You're taking the tastes of millions of people, and tossing them aside as "illegitimate".

I'm not "stuck in the past"; I like turn-based games. It would literally be no different if I told you that you were "stuck in the past" for liking action games. It's nonsensical and immature.

This is CaspuR btw

First of all I have and always will speak for myself and myself only, you should do the same. If you want turn based in the game fine, just dont hide behind "the millions of people" out there that want it turn based also, Thats like the weakest thing you can do.Defend turn based of your own reasoning not by the numbers game. Secondly this isn't a court where you can get off on finding a loop-hole or inconsistency in a statement, YES action games have been around for ever YES just as long as turn based games. Action games just aged better as far as the years are concerned thats why Spotie said your still stuck in the past. there are still 2d platforming games that I like today, am I going to fool myself and say 2d platforming genre is still a booming genre in a triple A space? NO

"If you want turn based in the game fine, just dont hide behind "the millions of people" out there that want it turn based also,"

Are you claiming they don't exist? Sales numbers say otherwise.

"Defend turn based of your own reasoning not by the numbers game."

Why does it need defending? The only reason is the immaturity of people that can't cope with people preferring different types of games.

"Action games just aged better as far as the years are concerned"

BS.

"am I going to fool myself and say 2d platforming genre is still a booming genre in a triple A space?"

A AAA 2D game of any kind is an oxymoron. 2D is the opposite of AAA.

As for AAA turn-based not booming, that's the point. There AREN'T ANY! If there were, IT WOULD STILL BE POPULAR!

Spotie824d ago

Man, you are really, truly stuck in the past, huh?

MrsNesbitt824d ago

I think it's great to reboot the classics!
