Thats basically what is implied by Remake.

IGN trying to be cool and original... maybe they are trying to...."reinvent" themselves?

after watching all of the trailers. it's a retelling.
particularly - spoilers

Cloud strife doesn't meet sephiroth in midgar after keeping zack's sword.
the last time Cloud ever met and last saw sephiroth was in cloud's home town Nibelheim.

also Aerith doesn't give cloud a flower. someone accidentally bumps into Aerith making her fall down. Cloud then has the option to either disrespect her or sympathize. upon sympathizing she will then offer to "sell" you a flower. <--- the scene is complete changed.

*SPOILERS*

To me it doesn't look like Cloud meets Sephiroth in this scene. Looks like some sort of flashback, as when he goes to attack Sephiroth he dissappears in to a mist. Much like the mist that swirls around Cloud and Aerith during their updated meeting scene.

it's not clear if you get to treat the characters like garbage once again in the remake. everything sort of plays out with everyone's typical choices. i would expect the choices to be the same. and if they're not it would be because of them making few sense to the story.

SPOILERS-
there are 2 sephs don't forget. by the time cloud meets up with Seph a second time (boat cruse ship) Seph is infected with a bunch of new abilities, including flying and vanishing. it could be a vision but you also never get to see seph for a while. his identity was meant to be a secret at the shinra tower.

Could have been a flash back. It's likely given that they're going into more back story for all the characters.

what they mean is it's not a 1:1 remake with only updated visuals. aside from the gameplay they must have changed quite few things to cope with were we are today. let's see.

you're not supposed to know Sephiroth's identity in midgar. he was originally a secret for a while. so yeah, SE changed the original story. the remake is a retelling.

IGN should buy themselves a thesaurus, and they'd see that they just contradicted themselves.
