With the rise of old classics HD remakes, maybe it's time to make a proper list of what we think is the best of the best in classic games to be remade in HD. This is your chance to do that.
NONE OF THEM Remake those games right now is bound to disapoint Nobody will be happy by the change of design , the change of visual perspective (or by the casting voices for ff6 )...
Actually the Japanese casting of Terra and Kefka in Dissidia are perfect.
i agree but what about the rest of the casting ?( ff6) Do you believe kekfa and terra avoices re on the same level in english ? People will find ways to be disapointed. @lulz_boat if the remake is 100% in the original style , why not play the original version instead ? Here lies one of the true problems of remakes ..sometimes , you don't really need them
if it's REMAKE with 100% original style, well. i'm sold
As much as I love 6 and would love to see it redone, I totally agree remakes will lead to nothing but dissapointment
I'd like to see square show that they're capable of making an RPG on the PS3/360.
13-2 is a good rpg believe it or not, though you probably never played it because your part of (the hate japan ps360) Hate train. just because its not absolutely amazing doesnt mean it sucks, for 30 bucks its a great game
I Want to remake SQUARE "Enix" name .. to SQUARE SOFT ! That's all .
and changing the name would do nothing but change the name. the last good member is Nomura from the original Square, aaaand that other dude i forget his name, but Square soft cant exist because mostly everyone lead game designer left. i still love SE, some of the best handheld games of the last handheld generation. they only made 3 HD games this gen themselves, ff13,ff13-2 and ff14, thats it. the rest was made by other creators and published by square, and i think all reviews and word of mouth and personal experience ff13-2 is a great game
neither. Final Fantasy vii would be really weird at points with todays graphics.
Personally, I think Final Fantasy VII is in need of a proper HD remake. It's scale in terms of story and locations wasn't given enough justice on the PS1 platform. Don't get me wrong, I loved the pre-rendered locales and environments in the game, but the actual 3D was bad (character models, vehicles, enemies etc). The whole dystopian atmosphere was amazing in FF7 but I really would like to see it in HD. As for Final Fantasy VI. I also believe it deserves a remake albeit not necessarily a full HD remake. I would really like to see a remake of FF6 on 3DS. The remake of FF4 on DS convinced me that Square have what it takes to remake titles on portable consoles. FF6's amazing story was cut (especially the dialogue script) in the SNES version due to space. Typically, dialogue between the characters were very short and in my opinion greatly effected development of the main cast.
hey, i would love an ff7 remake, but its too much work, im not going to explain why (full realization of world map and cities *Midgar especially*) would make it pretty hard. but i remember ff7 Endless crisis being registered before. I remembered it was said to be a sequel to ff7, but takes place after Dirge of cerberus. ff7:(Advent children)AC ff7:(Before crisis)BC ff7:(Dirge of Cerberus)DC ff7:(Endless Crisis?) EC i also remember hearing square had one more entry for the ff7 compilation that still never got released (possible endless crisis) Im speculating the events would take place when Gensis came back, if you remember the Dirge secret ending. Zack never finished Genesis so if Endless was about Cloud finishing Zacks fight with Genesis, that would be pretty awesome. They would be able to make a proper sequel as an rpg and not worry about dissapointment as much as a remake
Yeh Genesis is still alive. But apparently he's not technically a villain like Sephiroth was. I heard if he indeed does come back in a new FF7 title, he won't be a villain.
I think if they remade either, in order to be successful they would have to be risky with it. They have to change the games to meet todays standards of RPGs in terms of complication with battle systems and even dialogue. At the same time they would have to retain the core charm and narrative that made those games so cherished. It's certainly possible, but I think they'd need a new, talented director to do it and who knows where one of those is lurking...
Well I just want one of them to be remade so FF8 will finally be remade. I really want to see the Garden Fight in HD...it would be amazing :)
I get the feeling that the VIII fanbase- of which I am a part- wouldn't be nearly as critical as the VII base. Thus more people who bought it would actually enjoy it, instead of complaining about how Square-Enix couldn't do this right and got that wrong. Oh, and there are the things that would just look weird, like Red passing off as a human and no one knowing the difference. AND people wouldn't be happy with the voice cast. AND the music rights issue between them and Uematsu. With VIII, I don't care about that stuff. I just wanna see it in HD.... well, the music thing would still be an issue(assuming it's an issue in the first place). But the Garden Fight, the Lunar Cry, Lunatic Pandora, assassinating the Sorceress... all that stuff would be AMAZING in current gen specs.
The best thing about FF6/FF7 going before FF8 is even though we have to wait even longer, any issues they have when creating a HD game they will fix when they do FF8/FF9
Final Fantasy 9 !
I liked 6 over 7, however first Square needs to get the original name back to SquareSoft; THEN work on remakes.
I think they can remake the games, I mean all it takes is rendering like capcom did with resident evil on gamecube. Most of todays final fantasies arent exactly interactive. Rebuilding interactive enviroments will take some time, but if games like skyrim and such are made every so often years, then I dont see why couldnt this game. Just look at what some fans did on their own spare time and less resources.. http://m.youtube.com/index?... And here is a small sample of a fan outdoing sega with fan service.. http://m.youtube.com/index?... Not as hard as some may think, I mean the work is already laid out. Now trying to replicate success in a new project is harder.
both of those titles!!! but if there is only one then it's 7
When will people understand that a lot of the things in these games are just NOT meant to be seen in true 3 dimensions and realistic visuals?
6 should and most likely will be remade on the 3ds. It should be on a nintendo console as 7 should be on a sony console.
I would like to see both games remade in HD but FFVII must be first the fan-base of this game is by far the biggest from any FF. FFVII was the game that made the genre mainstream out of JPN also is the No1 FF in sales no other FF have sold over 10 million pieces and no other game have the downloads of FFVII on PSN, FFVI doesn't have even half of those sales so it's obvious which game is going to sell the most no brain. Both of these games deserve HD remake and I dont speak for FFXIII-like graphics the graphics imo must preserve this LEGO-style(I speak for out of combat) at least on FFVII else some scenes(Cloud dressed as a woman)will be destroyed completely. FFVII doesn't need realist graphics and I speak mostly for character models, on the environment on the other hand they can do w/e they want in order to bring this amazing world to life & also on battle animation/spell-summon effects on this field they can go wild and create amazing graphics and amaze us all. Btw think how it will be if we play FFVII/FFVI and all music tracks r recorded from a full fledged orchestra!
