i will agree ...most of the remakes are not faithfull to the original and in alot of ways inferior because they r rushed

Im currently playing FFVII Remake , i can say the graphical improvments of models and battle system are good , but everything else is somewhat inferior or different (especially the environment) and does nt manages to recapture the atmosphere of the old game ...also Crash Remakes are far from being perfect remakes in a lot of ways (inferior art elements, gameplay elements, inferior remade music) ..

..Imo Nintedo does the best job keeping its IP remakes faithfull and improved , for example Mario Odyssey is not only faithfull to its predecessor (Mario 64) but also aesthetically (and mechanically) is farsuperior to any current gen platformer , and probably is the best platform game yet

What are you talking about? Odyssey isn't even a remake and the Crash remakes are fantastic.

I don't like most of the changes in the FF7 Remake especially to the story and its been softened up there's no blood and some of the characters don't die like in the original. Apart from the swearing which is still there its almost like the game has been made family friendly now.

I absolutely loathed what they did with the sephiroth trail of blood section. As soon as I saw the changes I knew it was done for censor reasons.

The only smart decision is to let both versions be available to fans just as same with movies, at least with FF7 you can get the PS1 and Remake version on PS4.
