Maybe the Final Fantasy 7 remake is a bad idea

Do we really need a modern Square Enix to take on remaking what many consider to be the greatest video game of all time?

The tone of the game appears to be far darker than the original game, which while containing scenes featuring mature themes and often provocative scenarios, it was also rather light hearted - and at times, batshit insane.

Some things weren't meant to see in true 3D, I believe FFVII is one of them.

Please show us where you've seen footage of the game and its darker tone?

Because all the rest of us have seen is a vague trailer which shows nothing.

Going by the trailer, it did feel darker to me. I think a darker tone is a given though anyway, there is just too many dark moments in the game for it not to feel darker with better visuals. The cutesy character models and graphics in general masked a lot of the darkness. As long as it still contains the comic relief moments and fun crazy antics, I'll be happy.

There was always a dark tone in Final Fantasy VII, or at the very least, that ever present feeling of doom. Yea there was the usual Japanese quirky things here and there, and the script kept it entertaining, but the entire story was definitely not a happy one, especially in Midgar.

Calling FF7 the greatest game of all time is the moment i realized you still had your nostalgia goggles on, Its still debatable if its the best game in the series let alone if its the best game (regardless the genre) ever. The FF7re will be fine just judge it off its own merits and not the merit of how well it holds up to your nostalgia.

Everyone has their own best game ever. Not really that surprising for someone to consider FFVII as the best game they ever played.

DaddyPoppa1214d ago (Edited 1214d ago )

Then call it your favorite game ever theres a difference bettween favorite game and best game....My FAVORITE game ever is Persona 3 Fes, would I say its the BEST game ever? no

BlackTar1871214d ago


There is no Factual best game ever so i'm not sure where you're going with this. You favorite game should also be your best game ever. Why would anything be your favorite and then in your mind not be the best?

DaddyPoppa1214d ago (Edited 1214d ago )

My original comment was never meant to be taken as anything more than me stating the flaws of using the word best when in actuality you mean your most cherished or favorite (insert whatever here) ever. Im just the type of person that hates when "absolute" words or phrases are used in a discussion when the topic is obviously debatable. Im the same way when it comes to sports, ill never use the phrase " X player is the best player to ever play the game" because its a statement to me that shows your ignorance to the topic at hand.

Edit: its very easy for me to say Persona 3 fes is my favorite game ever and also undertsand its not the best game ever made, In the same breath its easy for me to say lebron james is my favorite player ever and still not believe hes the best player ever.

The word "Best" implies something that is quantifiable. It isn't a matter of opinion. Favorite is personal opinion.

If you want the same game with "prettier" graphs, play the PS4/PC port.

If I don't have internet, should I also get a 360? I think the "just go play the PS4/PC port" is a pretty arrogant statement. Change for this is inevitable to a degree but if they stray too far from the game, it will have defeated the purpose of listening to fans and creating this game in the first place.

Giving the fans what they want is a bad idea? I hate my generation.

Damien18011214d ago

Sometimes fans don't even know what they actually want.

BlackTar1871214d ago

Yea, something that is only found out after they get what they want and don't like it.

Kurisu1214d ago

This remake is one thing I definitely want :) it's kind of killed my hype for FFXV a bit to be honest. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the demo, and I'm sure I will feel more hyped up again when we start getting more news in regards to story etc but for now all I can think of is the FFVII Remake and how Tabata must be pissed off at Nomura for stealing his thunder!

Meanwhile Nomura is sticking his middle finger up to Tabata for taking over his project!

Quickstrike1214d ago

Actually fans do know what they want. It's stupid to give fans asking for a remake with turned based gameplay an action game to press X to win.

Besides, I guarantee there will be petitions going up to demand it to be turned based if it comes out as an action game.

Adrian_v011213d ago



It's funny how vocal people are when devs are "forcing" stuff into their games but here they are ready to force a guy (Nomura) who's not really fond of turn based systems to develop one. Funny how standards can change.
