Why Final Fantasy VII Doesn’t Need a Remake

It seems that no matter how much time passes, the idea that Square Enix need to remake Final Fantasy VII persists. Ever since they showed that infamous PlayStation 3 Tech Demo at E3 in 2005, Square have had to deal with constant fan demand for a remake of one of history’s most beloved RPG’s. There’s just one problem: Final Fantasy VII doesn’t need a remake, and this is why.

Because the Square being asked to do it are talentless, exploitative hacks?

And no, I don't know how to fix the series much less the company that makes it.

Could you even imagine what a FFVII remake would look like if developed by the Squenix of today?... *shudders*

Godmars2902449d ago

Meh, might have been too harsh in calling them hacks, really consider them, the dev teams, to be overwhelmed with the demands of HD then again making an a single-system title multiplatform midway through its production, but the way and the lengths management went to cover their tracks, issues promoting the PS3 version as the 360 one, that and more drags the company as a whole down to hack level.

Let's get one thing straight:

Square Enix is not talentless at all, Toriyama is just a really bad game designer for the main series. The Company itself still has LOTS of great talent...Unfortunately they're being lead by a guy who doesn't know what he's doing. He's not terrible, a lot of these he's come up were fun and original ideas like Dress Spheres and Catching monsters in XIII-2, but these aren't ideas that should be in mainstream FF titles.

Nomura, Tabata and Ito are all still at square, very talented, should be leading the series, not Toriyama.

Godmars2902449d ago

That kind of blind loyalty needs to stop. Nomura and the others may still be at Square, but throughout this gen its meant little to nothing. Some are still holding out hope for Versus, but its two years shy of being another Duke Nukem. Could become a worse example for being in production hell for not changing hands.

And really; what's the point of noting things which are not a part of FF, not actually good things, as if they were?

One thing I miss of older games is static camera design. If the remastered the game, I wouldn't change the camera at all. I love the angles of FF and Resident Evil games on PS1. I do not want TPS controls at all, but this is just a nostalgic feature we don't see often. In most recent years, God of War still does camera work the best IMO.

in its current state FF7 is literally unplayable to newcomers and to those that don't have their nostalgia goggles anymore. The game aged really bad....

I don't care about a remake, I just want them to finish the Genesis saga.

Until I changed my PC 2 years ago I still had the FFVII PC version on my desktop so yeah I would agree that it's still quite playable today except that the graphics have aged a lot. Nonetheless I would prefer that Squenix leave it alone. I'm scared they might ruin it if they do a "remale." A graphical update (updating graphics but leaving the old school gameplay alone) would be okay.
