Andriasang: With their low resolutions and framerates, even the finest PlayStation classics can be difficult to play today. But what if you could play some of those classics fully remade with PlayStation 3 level visuals?
Wada loves $$ So wat u waitin 4..make the remakes! But PS3 exclusive..dnt let it be limited and ur fans will love u again
I tend to prefer it when games are exclusive. It allows the developer to really get the most out of whichever console they choose.
And I came here to say they should remake some of their old games until they figured out where they wanted to take the series... You guys still holding on to that multiplat shit? Probably still think Ps3 games use 50 Gb's of data as well huh? GT 5 used 20 Gb's, Uncharted 2 used 23 Gb's, and the absolute biggest Ps3 game data usage was God of War 3 with 40 Gb's! On average, most games used under 20 Gb's... so why are you guys complaining? I know you complained about FFXIII because you said stuff had to be taken out so it would fit on the 360, but SE said a while before the game was even announced for the 360 that they would try to appeal to a western audience... at what point did you not realize that they meant the game was going to be more linear? You complained about towns, but all you did with towns in the past games was save, talk to people and occasionally find a hidden item. Towns slow down a game and I started to hate stopping in them. But that's just me. Another thing people complained about was not being able to revisit areas... my answer to that is, if you enjoyed the area that much... you should have never went forward and stayed there! The experience isn't meant to last forever, and if you enjoyed it that much, just play the game again or play an MMO!
FF7 Remake = Me sh*tting pants FF6 Remake = Me sh*tting pants and c*mming
@ billy I can agree and disagree with you i'd say it depends on the game some multiplats are great! yet other games are best remained exclusive to the platform i like them both =) but exclusives matter a lot, especially when you consider their quality. in this case, obviously make it exclusive. @DORMIN - lets hope you don't find out about them in public then =|....
Yeah, because we know full well how FF13 turned out when it was multiplat. Nothing was taken out of the game for...oh, wait...
Not even that segment that was taken coulda saved that terrible game
Gameplay shortcuts were just plain terrible especially some of the characters.
Sorry, what was taken out exactly? Come back with some proof of that instead of making stuff up. It would of been the same game either way.
@Negative Not saying that the game would have been any more fun to play, but the team had stated that they did have to cut stuff. There have been links in the past to the quotes, but if you are too lazy to look it up, so am I.
Every game has content cut from it, show me link that says it was due to the 360. A link from a dev saying it.
@ Negative Are you new to this site or did you just forgot about the endless stream of stories submitted on the matter before FFXIII was released? Makes me wonder if everyone will eventually forget the terrible GT5 reviews someday.
I've been here for to long, And all I remember is a bunch of bull stories making stuff up, never once did a Dev say the 360 held the PS3 version back. Content was cut from the game according to to the Dev's it was a balance and design choice which happens with nearly every game released. People just need something to blame FFXIIIs failure on. I've been here long enough to see FF XIII be the greatest game ever to being nothing in the eyes of Sony fans. All it took was for it to be announced for the 360. Thats the problem with fanboys there loyalties lie with the console maker not Dev's that make the games the like. FFXIII was one of the main reasons I bought a PS3, I didn't throw a fit about it, I figured what hell let more people have a chance to play one of the greatest RPG series ever. Just turned out it live up to the series standards in some areas. Multi-plat or not Square enix has lost its magic.
I do remember the producer Kitase mentioning in an interview that Japanese voice option had to be cut and so did an amusement park area and a few other areas due to the size constraint of the DVD. Wasn't a big fan of this game mainly because of the characters and voice acting (Vanille made sex sounds anytime she moved which convinced my girlfriend that I was playing a porn game) and I highly doubt that what was allegedly cut could have made up for it.
Yup. One main reason why those Final Fantasy games are on the list is because the most recent ones aren't as rememberable.
I want Dragon Quest 8. It was the only JRPG I've ever liked.
It is PS2. I don't know if a remake is needed. I have backwards compatibility and still play it. Wonderful game!!! But, I would L O V E to see some DQ love, especially the early ones (and I am not just talking the DS converts here.) Course they were called Dragon Warrior way back when.
Doesn't need to be remade, just remastered. The game has a beautiful art design, but it would be even more amazing if it was anti-aliased and got rid of the jaggies.
I remember playing the demo for dq8, it was so much fun, id love a remake/remastered version.
...a ps classic on xbox?...ROFL!!!
but the problems they would face trying to get a psone games to run at a decent frame rate on the 360 let alone trying to fit it on the 360s dvds would be too much for them to handle, but if they can manage it and keep the games like ff8 as good looking as they where we could have one of the 360s best looking games coming up.
It's amazing how the cut scenes from FF8 could be reproduced as real-time or better with this current console gen hardware capabilities.
FFVIII would have to be at the top of my list too. I don't know if SE has what it takes anymore, but if they do, I think a remake could be awesome.
I just want Legend of the Dragoon. PLEASE!
My god I've been screaming about it since I joined this site! Legend of Dragoon 1 re-release or god-willing Legend of Dragoon 2. The re-release would be great, but Legend of Dragoon 2 would be amazing.
yeah..your looking at the wrong people..you gotta tell sony to remake that.
I know that. But this was an overall PS1 remakes list.
FFVIII at the top? Surprised myself from the different views I've heard of it. Still have to play it myself, played VII and IX, bout time I hit up that PS store for it!
It is good. If you can not stand romance though do not buy it. In my opinion it is better then seven.
FF8 > FF7 I still dont understand why people like FF7 over FF8, but i did play FF8 first and became overly biased because of it. Triple Triad FTW!
"FF8>FF7" I thought I was the only person that thought that lol it was an absolutely amazing game
@Thanatos Yeah I have to side with you, by and large. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore VII and will always be a cherished favourite, but I did and still do prefer VIII over it. I just found the story more appealing and I loved the characters. Just entire game I found more engrossing. I never did get that far into IX, I don't know why. Maybe I should go back and give it another look. :P Also, does this genuinely surprise anyone? An entire generation of JRPGs that are arguably some of the best in history, the original PS was amazing for that reason alone. Let alone the other amazing genres it had. I miss those days when I could anticipate any truly great traditional JRPG.
I miss Squaresoft...
I love 8 more than any other game i have ever played and that song makes me go mushy called "eyes on me" or something like that the feelings this game gives you is better than alot of movies.
@Thanatos I also miss SquareSoft, one of the best developers of a bygone generation. @Mr.Magoo Agreed 100%. Eyes On Me also made tears well up in my eyes when I heard it, I felt like a huge pussy. I guess that's the effect a great story and great characters can have on someone when they're well done. Can't say I've had the same experience recently.
When you look at the poll's demographic, its not surprising. As stated above, FF8 is a romance, and the majority of the people polled were female. That said, FF8 was a very well done game, and very deserving of a remake. The only thing it lacks in comparison to FF7 is the star power of a Cloud or Sephiroth.
I would not mind a FFVIII remake AT ALL balamb garden HD for the win.
I would love to see FF8 remake it was my favorite FF8 im surprised it beat out FF7 on that list.
only if square enix listens to their fans instead of doing failures like lost planet
I think lost planet was capcom, but still you could name at least 10 SE games this gen that no one really wanted.
Front Mission Evolved was a huge failure especially for fans. After you get a bazooka weapon and repair backpack, you could basically tank everything and kill everything with ease even on hard difficulty. Really sad.
Yea because back in the day Square was fuking beast edit: the list is missing: Brave Fencer Musashi from Square Breathe of Fire 3, 4 from Capcom and Grandia from Game Arts
This just goes to show how good they were. They are still good today but I think they can do much better and quicker.
low on money square, the sony faithful have not gone anywhere...
Square Enix financial sucess is still based on Squaresoft´s works. Squaresoft was such an respected company back in the day.ps: I dont have anything against Enix games (with Dragon Quest you cant go wrong).
I want a Legend of Dragoon remake. I searched everywhere for that game when i had a PS1. I eventually found it and about a week later, i was switching games and while i was holding the disc (with my finger through the hole), my dog thought it was a frisby. The hairy bollocks ruined the game and almost ripped my finger off.
man i still remembered how i found out about square when i was young and got kingdom hearts. Since then i was a fan buying kh2, kh:bbs, chain of memories, 358/2 days(whoever made this name should get fired), and ff7:crisis core. But now, looking down the road of failure that theyre walking down dissapoints me. I was even going to get ff13! All they need to do is to make a ff7 remake, ff15, and kh3 all exclusive to the ps3 with nomura at the helm and theyll get their fans back. They can make a new series exclusive to the xbox and itll be all right but they have to please make up with their old fans. Not trying to sound like a fanboy here(i dont mind the xbox) but as we see time and time again multiplats are better on the 360 and ps3 exclusives are usually out of this world. P.S. They need to put crisis core on the ps store. I personally dont want it but people have been begging for it for so long
Thats how I got into Square too. Really that is why KH is my favorite game. Personally I would like an FF6 HD remake too. Playing the GBA version on the DS now and am lovin it.
Yea im just waiting on Jak 4, Sly 4 and KH3 and I'll have all of my ps2 series's finally on the ps3. I played chain of memories but on the ps2 where sadly it felt like I was playing kh1 all over again. The battle system was not good for the ps2 in anyway. I never played the ps1 final fantasy's(or any for that manner) but im planning on getting ff7 and ff8 because kh introduced me to Leon and crisis core introduced me to Cloud
GGAASSPPPP!!! OOMMGG... FANS REALLY WANT FFVII REMAKE!!??? THAT'S REALLY NEWS TO ME!! /sarcasm /rant Jesus SE, get with the times.
Square should take this to heart. I mean go back to making great RPGs like FFVII, FFVIII, IX, X. My god, I would kill for a new game that was just like any of these classics. Not a remake
I'd really like xenogears remade in full hand drawn animation ... it really is and always will be my favorite game of all time . the story is just beyond Epic!!! Square should look to Level 5 and No Ni Kai for inspiration ( we all know they need some) but with a more mature tune . I know the team that made it nintendo owns now but they still own the right to it....... SE goddamit do it.... then I can die happy
damn that picture. now it makes me wants to play FFVIII again.
Title should be SquareSOFT Dominates want list for PS3 remakes. Square Enix Has never made an original game that was worth a crap.
yes plz ruin childhood memorys since you have only made bad games this gen.
Final fantasy 8 for the win. I really like it.
The Goo Ranking survey responders were 33.7% male and 66.3% female. 18.1% were in their 20s, 30.9% in their 30s and 25.7% in their 40s. 1/3 male? wtf
if square would only remake one final fantasy to hd i would pick 6
I've played every FF except XII and VI has got to be the most memorable and my personal favorite. And your pic is of favorite FF character. Bubbles for the pic. I would love to see the FF VI world in 3d and HD.
unkcle ultie in 3d graphics would be sweet- they should steal the material of those half snake witch things from god of war 3 kefkas laugh should be untouched tho :D
Well at least Dino Crisis is there. I hope Capcom is noticing.
RIP Squaresoft. FFVI and Chrono Trigger are masterpieces.
Not for me, I can no longer stand turnbased RPG grinders. What I want above all else is MGS 1-3 1080p 60 FPS and maybe the PSP games as well and trophies for MGS4
i still dont see why people dont show any love for FF9. its #3 but it should be #1
It is the best reviewed FF and in the eyes of fans it isnt as good as 6, 7 and some other ones too.
Youll only ruin them
makes sense as most of the recent games from SE sux
Hey Square Enix, since you're in the mood. Einhander for crying out loud.
I didn't bother with Front Mission Evolved. Would love a Front Mission (5) Scars of War remake and Tobal No. 1 & Tobal No. 2 combo remake.
please remake these games that was actually great games when it was just Square. Once Enix took countrol my god what the just happened to quality? after FFX it was just so, so, bad.... my god
