Zelda, Final Fantasy and King's Quest all have something in common - the use of success sounds.
Start at the beginning.
Well that's how it should be, but too many now buy sequels rather than starting at the beginning. That's why more sequels now have no mention of the previous game.
I already used to do that back in the day. Bought both God of War 2 and FFXIII-2 without knowing anything about their prequels
typically if theres a 2 or a -2... there's source material...
Too many people need to be told this anymore... it really blows my mind.
Square didn't name it Remake 2 to maximize sales anyways lol
Yes play the first game it’s really good
The first game was so bad i couldn't finish it. Endless fetching, nonsense additions, etc. Cool visualization of Midgar, but it's all filler.
"Endless fetching" - Don't do the side quests then, they do kind of suck. "nonsense additions" - Most of the additions are actually very welcome to some parts that NEEDED fleshing out. "it's all filler" - That isn't even the least bit true... There were some lacking moments in Remake, and some odd choices at times I'll give you that. Trying to say the game was "bad" though is very far off the mark. It's a fantastic game.
Bad my a**. As for the fetching quests, don't do them. Simple.
absolutely true. i coulda still accepted the less desirable stuff if the story didn't shit the bed in the last hour
Just finished my second playthrough of ff7 remake. One of the best games I've ever played. A bit slow at times, but it's exceptional.
it was ok
Yeah hard disagree on this. If you skip remake you wont miss out on anything. The story truly kicks off when you leave Midgar.
The heck do you mean? You will miss out on EVERYTHING if you skipped Remake, lol. Who the hell goes into a story driven series without playing the first part of it? There's absolutely no point in jumping on mid-way through something like that. You'd have no context for any characters or their relationships, nor their goals or plot of the series as a whole.
Just watch the story catch up video in Rebirth. Remake just wasnt a good game. To anyone new to FFVII I’d suggest the play the original then rebirth.
Remake was an excellent game. Got me through lockdown as well so I have fond memories. Just finished my second playthrough before digesting rebirth. Ff7 remake must be played first .
hard disagree, midgar sets the plate for the rest of the the story
Nothing that the “story so far” video in Rebirth can’t fix.
I figured that would have been common sense
Exactly what I’m doing. Definitely finishing Remake before starting Rebirth, as it should be.
Duh. I thought it's common sense to play the 1st part of a series.
I haven't yet played Remake but will certainly play that first. I take it Remake and now Rebirth don't have that feature that is in FF16 where you can basically pause at any time and it gives you background and details of the characters and locations you are with and at? I am a casual Final Fantasy player and they aren't exactly my favorite games overall but I do enjoy them and that feature in FF16 was such an amazing thing and it helped folks like myself big time.
tbh if your a casual FF player just skip remake cos its boring. Rebirth has a catch up video that pretty much sums it up.
The entirety of Remake just felt like filler. It was such a struggle to play because the world just constantly dragged on and on and the voice acting grated, always feeling like the voice actors had no idea what they were actually voicing in game so regularly felt disconnected. This was all caused by them insisting on dragging it out in order to try and make more money from 3 games rather than just making a great single game and you feel that in every single moment and choice within the game.
I agree remake was filler but there was no way they were gonna remake it in one game. It would’ve been development hell because it would take 20 years and require constant tech debt upgrades during that process prolonging development. Remake was average, but in hindsight seems necessary to make the rest of the game really great.
Definitely I'm gonna wait for a complete game, fk this episodic greed.
I doubt people are going to want to go back and play all of the FF's before this one.
