    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    At long last, a remake to one of the most iconic RPGs of all time has officially been announced!

    Its definitely my favorite RPG, and was the first FF game I played, so I was really excited about it. But now, after I've thought about it, I'm kind of on the fence about it; because it is indeed an incredibly risky thing to do, but one could argue that Square Enix is fully aware of whats at stake, and is confident enough to take the risk.


    What are your thoughts on this "remake"? What should or shouldn't Square Enix change and/or improve about FFVII?

    Meh. FF6 was the last good FF. After that it became all emo and poetic and one dimensional.

    I'm not personally into RPGs but I hope it turns out well because I know a lot of people love FF.

    I disagree. I think people associate the characters having personal issues with bad character traits or bad story telling. Especially in this case. I don't even care that much for FF7, but I still am in the camp that people exaggerate that facet of 7 (granted I realize your not singling out 7 with that statement).

    Anyways, I'm excited to see there is a remake and I'll most likely nab it. My only fear is that they end up changing things they shouldn't, but I think regardless they will have something well worth playing.

    I was really hoping for a FFXII remaster on the Vita, preferably with the International Zodiac Job system as an option.

    It's mainly 7 and onward and including all the spin offs that ruined 7s name even more. It's just very overrated and the moment I actually play it it's very streamlined and dull. Considering everythings a sidequest on that game I'm better off playing an MMO or something.

    Everything man, the story, the new mechanics the fluidity of the game. Everything felt so smooth crisp and immersive while you were playing. Lots of strategy goes into it as you grind hours and hours of enjoyment into that game. The huge cast of characters makes the gameplay unique since everyone's different.

    All the games up to 10 were good to me. Some better than others. Even 12 was enjoyable.

    Fair enough. I'll agree its way overrated as well, but that doesn't mean much to me usually.
