Why Remake Final Fantasy Vii?

Final Fantasy Vii has sold almost 10 million copies to this day. It's a cult classic and it's many peoples first Final Fantasy title. Fans have been clamoring for a remake of Final Fantasy Vii. Does the game really deserve a remake?

When players first popped the final fantasy vii disc into their ps1 they were greeted with great visuals, (for its time) great gameplay, and memorable FMV clips like Aeris's death. The game has gotten a big following since it's release and it's widely considered the best Final Fantasy game. Final Fantasy Vii spawned multiple spin offs of the game and even a complete movie. I think people think that final fantasy vii is the best because it was lots of peoples first final fantasy game. Even the characters in final fantasy vii were amazing and memorable with emotions that made you care. I personally think the story of final fantasy 6 was much better but that is not the point of this blog.

Square Enix In my opinions should not work on a Final Fantasy VII remake. Sure a remake would look beautiful but it's not needed. Square instead of replicating Final Fantasy VII should aim above and try to create the next "Best" final fantasy title. I'm not going to lie, final fantasy 7 was a phenomenal game and if they did remake it I would surely buy it but I want square to go above final fantasy 7. I want to see the next "most" memorable story, best cinematic, and best game-play.
I believe Square can pull it off if we give them a chance.

Even a Final Fantasy VII-2 would be awesome.

Tell me what you all think.

I think they could make a new game thats just as good ore better, except there's one thing standing in the way. Squareenix is placing more value and development resources on making pretty graphics than they are on making a top notch story. It's they two together that make a great game but they as with many other devs this gen have lost their way amongst the shiny glitter and sparkles world of hd graphics.

Square revisiting a well known success is a sign of creative bankruptcy. Their name alone should be enough to sell games. They shouldn't have to be doing an overly redundant move of drudging up the old brand title of VII within the brand title of Final Fantasy.

It's one thing to dig up old games, its another to ignore what you're fans are requesting.

If they go back and revive some dreadful NES game they made, that is "Creative Bankruptcy" But doing something else with FFVII, while everyone is screaming for a new one is giving the fans what they want.

Last time I checked, rather the last time a most wanted list for PS3 titles in Japan was posted, Last Remnant was still in the top 20. Also haven't heard anything in regards to Versus, other than it wasn't canceled after rumor that it was exploded everywhere. So you'd be hard pressed to show example that Square is listening to fans.

And it is an example of creative bankruptcy. They brought it subject, presented the trailer, only to back down and make excuses. Have repeatedly gone back and forth. If such isn't then it speaks of a major lack of ability and skill coupled with overconfidence.

Did you say anything constructive?

Yeeeaah... I still want The Last Remnant on the PS3... And I never said they have shown they are listening to their fans, I know they are not...

The scrapped TLR for the PS3, vsXIII is AWOL, they turned FF into Farmville, have yet to say anything about bringing Type 0 stateside, no Birth By Sleep on the PSN for Vita owners, FFXIII-2 and rumored to unveil XIII-3

I said it would be giving the fans what they want, not that they were giving the fans what the want. Trust me, I am PO'd as SE westernizing their company.

Do you ever have anything constructive to say? Seriously, didn't your parents teach you that if you don't have anything good to say you should simply stfu?

I prefer to see alternatives of FF 7 come out, though I am sad they didn't jump onto the bandwagon in the 90's and make a Midgar Babies game. Just thinking of a little chibi Sephiroth in a diaper, storming around all pissed off and grumbling about how the caregiver that looks after the group "isn't his mother."

I swear I saw this exact blog before. Hmm. Anyway, an FF7 remake isn't at all necessary. I wouldn't mind an FF7-2, or a game that finally answers what Genesis was going to do after the end of Dirge of Cerberus, but I've already seen FF7HD thanks to PC mods, so a remake would hold no surprises for me. Now and FF8 remake, I would love that. Or an FF6 remake as well. Or an FFX prequel (which is what FFX-2 should have been in the first place).

But then again, FF7 is at the bottom of my top 5 FF games list. Unless I were to include Spinoffs, then it doesn't even get a spot in the top 5. I don't buy the FF7 hype because I actually played the game and am not afflicted with nostalgia.

because the story was boss, and the experience was great. also, this new generation of gamers is entirely reliant on FPS's. they're addicted. they need to be shown what a boss game is. and those of us that experienced it the first time would thoroughly enjoy an update
