Gameskinny: "Final Fantasy VII. For most players of the Final Fantasy franchise, the series seventh installment is universally acclaimed as being one of the best if not THE best. For me, it was the first game in the series I had ever played and also one of the last. When trying to play future installments, I just couldn't get into them like I did with Final Fantasy VII.
So naturally, when I heard rumors a long time ago about an HD remake that Square was working on, I didn't care what system it was on because I was going to buy that system just for Final Fantasy VII. At E3 in 2005 it looked like we were all going to get our wish.
And then comes the wool over the eyes."
