Kids Don't Want a Final Fantasy VII Remake

WildCardCorsair writes: I'm sure you all are quite aware of what world we're living in. The new generation of children are so used to technology that they need constant entertainment. You think this would not really affect the game industry in a negative way, being that games are a form of entertainment, but you'd be wrong.

The story is too old to be commented.

Obviously Dark Sniper is of the popular opinion that Final Fantasy VII should be remade. But this article delves deeper into another issue that definitely warrants discussion.

Gamers around Dark Sniper's age bracket will likely be able to identify with what he's saying. Once upon a time, there was an age where 100% of all gaming was done offline. Younger gamers these days should be appreciative of the fact that all of their gaming news can be found through the ease of the internet. Back then, Dark Sniper had to wait for his monthly issue of EGM Magazine in order to stay up to date on the latest games and information. Compared from then to now, is a gigantic difference.

That isn't the real issue, the issue is that multiplayer gaming has completely shifted the way we play video games to this day, excluding the more popular genre of JRPG's that dominated during the SNES,PS1,PS2, and Sega Saturn eras of gaming.

Dark Sniper has been gaming since the Atari 2600, so it's very easy to view this from a jaded, one-sided point of view. But he can at least identify the fact that younger gamers wouldn't waste their time on long, epic journey adventure titles with outdated graphics when they could be taking their time leveling up their K/D ratio on Call of Duty. Not that Dark Sniper agrees with any of this, but that's just how gaming is these days.

As gamers, we're a society divided, we're at a time where gaming back then was more underground than it is mainstream. There's old-school gamers and there's new school gamers. Many would agree that if you were born in the 1990's, you missed out on an ENTIRE epidemic of great games that will never be duplicated again.

Thankfully, digital distribution has been great in preserving a lot of classics from that time period. But it will never be able to re-create the magic that gaming had during that timeframe.

When I read your comments, I imagine them being spoken by a robot.

Fylus3664d ago

I agree. Sometimes I feel like Dark Sniper has multiple accounts because it always seems that whenever someone says something slightly negative to him (it?) they receive a bunch of disagrees...

Plus he spams; constantly advertising.

Hufandpuf3664d ago (Edited 3664d ago )

Ikr, his posts look and read like a big advertisement. Idk if he has multiple accounts but I'll find out. I have ways of doing that.

He's a real street fighter fanatic from Texas, that's for sure.

It reminds me of that Seinfeld episode of that character Jimmy who always talked in the third-person.

"Jimmy's open!"

"Jimmy did pretty good out there."

"Hands off Jimmy! DON'T..TOUCH....JIMMY!&quo t;

This trademark is something coolbeans digs. 8)

I was born in 1991, and played all through NES, SNES, N64/PS1. So, other than that last bit there about 90's gamers missing out on those great games, I agree with your comment. Though it's not just us old school gamers that should give some slack to the new generation, they need to be just as giving. We need a mix of developers making old school inspired things, as well as ones who make stuff for the newer generation.

Dude, why are you commenting in third person?

jeeves863664d ago

It's his M.O. Every comment he makes is in the third person.

Fylus3664d ago

It's annoying, isn't it? It makes me a little embarrassed to be on the same side (PS3 user) as him.

By the way, most gamers are adults so the demographic is not children/teenagers. They're playing CoD. There have been studies confirming it. Just google it if you're interested. I think I heard about it on an IGN podcast.
Anyway, I was born in the ninties and I was a kid when Final Fantasy came out on PS1. I never tried it. Now I want a remake so I can see what all the fuss is about. I do not want to play the current version because at that time, people saw it differently. I want to see it uprezzed so I can see it in your eyes.

"Kids don't want a Final Fantasy VII remake"

Kids aren't the target audience, and they probably don't have the money to buy the game anyway. Who cares what they want?

wildcardcorsair3664d ago

Money drives the industry and the target audience is irrelevant. only the paying audience matters. Megaman Legends 3 had a target audience but capcom did not think the game would make money so they pulled the plug. The Last Guardian is all but cancelled, and it'll be a miracle if we see that anytime soon. i wish it wasn't this way, but it is.

arnsekar3663d ago

Kids would likely not be the paying audience either.

Acquiesc33664d ago

Oh look, it's the boxart that I made. Regardless of that, I'd say I wouldn't want an FF7 remake either. Or should I say.. rather than having those resources go to an FF7 remake, I'd rather see them go towards a new game/project.

wildcardcorsair3662d ago

good job with that box art!
