Here's another way to look at it. Look at FFXII. They're almost completely throwing away the FF system. Sure, everyone likes a change of pace once in a while, but impressions have been lackluster at best. It would be nice to have them do another game with a more classic system, and FFVII was pretty close to the basic original style. Maybe it will lead the series back to what it used to be. And I don't really think it would ruin the game to have it remade. I mean, just look at FFX. The voice acting was pretty bad at times ("Ihateyou!" Jesus, did they have any voice direction?) but yet the game was still pretty playable, despite the horribly easy and repetitive battle system. If the voice acting couldn't ruin FFX, then it probably won't ruin FFVII, considering it should have progressed and all. Plus, we really, really need the return of the overworld.

But then again, I would still play the original, too. I still enjoy the old RE along with the GC remake. "Here's a lockpick. It might be useful if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you."


Instead of re-making a game to bring back the "classic conventions" of FF VII, why not just put their efforts into a NEW games that plays like FF VII. This way you can have a FF VII like game with a new story?

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Well, that's the end goal, and of course most of us want a new FF game with a better system (it doesn't have to be the classic system, just one that goes in a direction other than south), but that game has yet to be announced, or even hinted at. Only with a FFVII remake would that system be certain, and I feel it would probably greaten the odds of a new game with the classic system. It's the idea of leading the series back to classic system that appeals to me, not the FFVII.

Yeah, make it "gritty" - maybe add a GTA style mode where you can run over chokobos with your dune buggy. And add killer robots. And zombies.

I was just watching G4 between innings of the Astros game, and one of the talking heads said that a recent demonstration of the FF7 PS3 footage in Japan didn't come with the standard "this is just a tech demo" disclaimer. Do they think that everyone knows it is a tech demo by now, or is FF7 PS3 in the works?

I have the clip on my computer, and at the title screen it says "Final Fantasy VII: Technical Demo for PS3".

Yes, I guess I can understand someone having a fascination with pretty shiny things, cavemen had this curiosity as well. I don't see how people, especially cheap ass gamers can pitch a tent over being sold the same product twice in a relatively short period of time. It would be similar to James Cameron re-making Titanic this year and people being excited about it.


Except it wouldn't be like that because Titanic sucked and FFVII didn't.

I for one would love to see this remade. It was one of my favorite games, and you may call me a "caveman" but I would like to relive the game with updated music and graphics, perhaps a little work on the translation. Plus I wouldn't be suprised if they threw in a few extras here and there. To be honest I kind of wanted to play it again when the demo came out, but now I'll wait because there is a slight chance of the game being remade.

Mr Unoriginal, seems your pretty mad about people wanting a remake. I see nothing wrong with it, your comparing it to movies(in theater) but i dont see why.....

I see it like this. Lets say i have a movie on VHS, after having so much on DVD, would i not want to pick up that same favorite movie, remade for dvd? If i loved a certain CD, would i not be thrilled about picking it up digitally remastered?

I dont think anyone would complain if the Titanic was remade on like a DVD Superbit version. I sure as hell know i wouldnt buy it but i wouldnt hound the people who would.

Pardon me for not being hardcore and saying "VI" instead, but if any FF game deserves the full treatment of next gen graphics and updated gameplay, it's VII.
