Nah. Ff9 was a better game that many slept on when it released. Ff8 was a good one to, I hated the level scaling though. Still up there in the top 5 though. They sure don't make them like they used to unfortunately

FF9 just represents the best of the series , I really hope it gets like the Link Awakening/Super Mario RPG treatment . FF8 on the other hand would need a complete overhaul from the combat to the story telling (because the story was really silly) , I remember hardly ever using magic as it was basically losing stats every time you used them especially the rarer junctions , the combat was basically attack, limit breaks, summoning and 80% of the time drawing magic . Only thing 8 had better was its card game .

you can't change that much about ff8 without completely demolishing it. Everything was connected, the junctioning, the combat, the gf abilites like turning cards into items and way more, you could do so many cool shit in ff8 and that would be lost if you make too many changes. Junctioning and magic was counterintuitive yeah, but it was all part of the minmaxing you could do. I think a change like when you junction something it takes how many you collected of that magic instead of your current amount (up to 99 ofc), I think that single change would solve a lot of problems already. You would have to draw less, you can use magic a lot more and you can still junction to the max like before.

@Michiel1989 ya probably but it's also the reason why I'd rather just get a FF9 remake , it caters to the fans who've wanted to play a more traditional FF in the 3d realm since like FF10 almost 25 years ago . It has a more colorful and diverse cast of characters and world with a fun battle system with ability/spell progression that's tied to your equipment . FF8 the whole cast aside from their limit breaks and the world aside from Esthar city and the final areas didn't really do it for me , the towns , gardens and ruins all just had the same-y feel to them ( maybe it's just the color pallet) . With 9 I just feel like every character was unique within their role in a party and everywhere you went was a wholly different setting and experience .

Make it an actual remake of the game and not a reboot of the first hours of the game just to release the next hours some years later and nothing of it feels like FF9 actually aside from the same characters and locations used.

This! Don't wanna fanfic or reimagining.

I just hope they don't divide into trilogy please...Full game from start to finish? Maybe in 2 parts maximum?

andy8530d ago

Seems like this is just one game thankfully and not on the scale of FF7

solideagle30d ago (Edited 30d ago )

Thank you for your reply! that's awesome news. I wish it was VIII first as I like 8 more than 9...

It will probably be one game but will look like the secret and trails of mana remakes. Probably even one of those teams working on it.

I thought FF8 was the superior game to get a remake treatment ? whoever that shareholder that forced SE to make FF9 Remake he must've spent a lot of budget backing this to happen , pretty strange shift from 7 to 9 but hey .. FF8 was a much deserving to be remade since the story needs expansion between Squall and Laguna and it left on a cliffhanger note

8 is a fantastic game but it’s no 9

Michiel198929d ago

it was only the swanswong of the ff creator, don't think much money was involved with that decision. Also ff7 and 8 have a similar, modern setting compared to ff9. I think ff9 makes much more sense

ff9 is also way more accessible than ff8

ff8 is one of my fav games of all time but the one thing that still bothers me a lot is how they pulled a cheap anime move, that in the last episode when you defeat the villain SURPRISE SURPRISE I was not the real villain but a servant of another bad guy. Not exactly the same as ff8 with Edea and Ultimecia, but same idea but instead of a bad guy she was their nanny

One of the most memorable fights I ever played. I almost didn't want to pull the trigger at the end.

I liked it a lot, I will not compare it with other final fantasy, But I hadn't felt that emotion for a long time playing since the final fantasy vll remake, it lacks some things, it's not my goty, but it deserves a place in my heart, with that I say everything.
