The Final Fantasy VII intro was remade with Unreal Engine. I hope this is as far as it goes.
The Final Fantasy series has been GARBAGE since VIII... I haven't even been able to make it through the past several games because they've been so bad.
imo i liked FF9 more than 7.
I'm with you here . There is a movement of people , obviously outnumbered but still there , that'd think FF7 is great , but not the ultimate best FF ... and outshined by another older FF (usually 6) and/or FFIX since it was aan almost perfect retro retreat .. and/or *gasp* even enjoyed FFXII
My favorite has got to be FF 8. I think 7 gets all the hoopla because of what it accomplished at its time in playstation, and gaming, history. That game just screamed GO BUY A PLAYSTATION NOW!! And I did, lol. FF7, MGS, Tomb Raider. Those games marked the end of the Saturn.
Never played one before VII, but it was my favorite. I loved 8,9,10, and even 12. But FF7 will always be my favorite FF and probably even RPG.
if ff7 was remade everyone would complain, they just need to do the final part of the compilation and bring it back to its roots, no dirge crap. Cloud needs to stop genesis from what ever he is doing and the game needs to have materia, and be an actual rpg. and im sick of people saying ff6 was better than ff7 or ff7 is better than 10 etc, its ur freakin opinion, whether or not the ff7 lovers played the others fact is more people like ff7 than any other ff game so deal with it, that is so 15 years ago
i don't know what your talking about. i enjoyed all of them except for final fantasy 11(XI)
I sure didn't enjoy FFXIII or FFX-2. =/ And why the author say that FFXIII sales were disappointing when the game has sold nearly 4.7million just on PS3 and 1.7million on the Xbox? >_0
ithe only final fantasy i didnt play through was ffx-2 only because i don't have it but I have played it and can say that from what I played, i did like it.
I'm not against the new FFs or anything, just throwing it out there. FF didn't end there, the FF name was good until FFX and that was imo their best installment. Be careful what labels you use.
Square should remake VI. VII gets so much love imo is the ps1 graphics at the time.
It's more what happens with one of the character near the end.
I really like the turn base though, even bought the remake of FF4 and PS1 classic of 1-8. For me that gameplay was the best, not that much complex and yet still made you think.FF13 gameplay was nothing but mashing X, only used potions and such when I fought a big boss. Can you imagine what SE would do to FF7 gameplay if it was redone? That alone would make me want to skip it. I think what fans (or most) want is just a graphical update to the game. We aren't looking for a new gameplay system at all or a huge rewrite of the story. Also the reason why fan hate Sonic now is because SEGA stemmed to far away from it's original roots. They started experimenting with new elements, that's what got Sonic killed. Though Sonic Gen. Looks like it did good for the series. IMO there are better FF games out there, but lets be real. SE is sitting on a gold mine here, why they aren't mining I don't know
If all SE did was give FFVII a graphical boost, people would be complaining. "Why aren't there voices?" "What about the music?" And so on. I seem to recall that there was a good bit of stuff that got left out of VII, as well; I can't picture SE remaking the game and NOT putting that stuff in yet again. And that would change the game considerably, no doubt. Retconning certain portions of the story to fit in with Advent Children/Crisis Core/Dirge of Cerberus would further pull it away from the original. In the end, the game would wind up not resembling the original by a whole lot, and people would be upset. VII is a lose-lose-lose for Square-Enix: if they don't make it, they lose because people will complain about not having it; if they make it and pretty much just upgrade it graphically, people will complain that they should have improved a dozen other things, and that the remake was half-assed; if they do a full remake, people will complain that they changed too much from the original and ruined a classic.
Reason 1: It'll never be as good as the original.
Reason 2: The horse has already died from Square beating it too often.
i actually liked final fantasy 10 the most. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it sucks xxxanubisxxx
was FFX your first? because FFX was good but not comparable to FFVI, VII or IX if you ask me.
Remaking the greatest JRPG and arguably the greatest video game ever made on the Unreal Engine is a slap in the face of anyone who played Final Fantasy VII back in the original PlayStation era. If Final Fantasy VII receives a remake(and it should), it needs to be handled delicately. At some point, all of the classic Final Fantasy games need to be remade, Dark Sniper personally ranks VIII as of equal importance. Square Enix unfortunately lost their talents of their mid 90's dominance due to unfortunate departures and horrendous decision making. Infinite Undiscovery and The Last Remnant(Xbox 360 exclusives) are prime examples of Square Enix's fading talent. Future Final Fantasy games have unfortunately been cursed due to Square Enix's defection from greatness. But Final Fantasy VII was, is and always will be a coveted classic that can only be found on PlayStation. If there is any consideration of Final Fantasy VII leaving the PlayStation family tree at the cost of a remake, Dark Sniper agrees that this should be a classic that should remain untouched. $niper
Why do you have to talk in third person?
VII is arguably the best 3D FF.
never thought it was a good idea to begin with. I liked FF7 but its because of the memories of when I first played the game. Who is to say that it will recreate those memories. Aeries dying won't have its impact as it did the first time we saw it. Changes can be made to the game that will ruin it, and with the way square is now I wouldn't even want them to touch this game. also they will change the classic battle system because well its square they always feel they need to evolve. voice acting itself can ruin this game. Kitase said he will feel incline to remove stuff from the game. Square also said it would take lots of time and money to remake the game, I also doubt it will reach the height the original one did.
Knowing today's square Enix, they would probably fudge it up
Some good reasoning here - but there are remakes that got it right. Look at REmake for the Gamecube - that was pretty intense.
WHY FF7? FF 10 is the best ff ever
I personally would like a Remake Of Final Fantasy 6 Instead. It's overlooked by many and has a far greater story than Final Fantasy 7. Should they Remake final fantasy 7? I don't know, Final Fantasy 7 was a great game but i think Square Enix needs to focus on their titles now since the Franchise has been going down hill and remaking a game will hinder their progress.
i used to want this because of the prequal and the sequal (aka movie) but over time i got tired hell even my favourite rpg legend of dragoon that i wanted to have a sequal/prequal or sequal too interest started to fade a bit i guess i'll just take what they dish out if it interests me enough
They're still pumping out Final Fantasies? I thought the whole point of a title like Final Fantasy was idk, that it was final.
As mentioned in the article, it will simply cost too much money, time, and effort to remake a game that is as intricate as FFVII. I'd love to see it remade with new graphics, textures, and what-not, but it would have to be EXACTLY as the original was. Leave out one piece of dialogue, one dungeon, cutscene, and die-hard fans will be up in arms. Sure they'll be disappointed if SE doesn't remake it, but they'll get over it, just like they did when the trailer was first released when the PS3 launched. Final Fantasy games have always been about the story. No matter what changes they make to the gameplay, or the world map, the reason I think Final Fantasy games have been so popular is because they allow players to immerse themselves in fantastical worlds with memorable characters that we can relate too, all the while delivering a (sometimes) heart wrenching story.
Final Fantasy games 'used' to be about the story. There's still a small glimmer of story in the current titles their names are on, but it's fading fast. XIII is a prime example of a bomb in that aspect and the remakes for the handhelds are starting to look... silly which detracts from the overall feel of the games.
Cause its shit.
