That makes sense. Also, it's probably for the best. I don't need to be spending $60 on a game I already played. I would do it, too. I would step over my own mother for that game.
They wouldn't be doing that, they'd just be remaking Final Fantasy VII.Thaius said:To see one of the greatest fantasy stories ever told in modern graphics?
You know what that means? They're gonna make it. Not. Maybe. Unless they don't not want to maybe remake it possibly.anthony87 said:If they're not going to make it then could they please stop telling us that they're not going to make it?
Eh, same thing. My opinion, at least. It's my favorite game... at least it was until Mass Effect 2 challenged its throne. Point being... a remake would be full of win.John Funk said:They wouldn't be doing that, they'd just be remaking Final Fantasy VII.Thaius said:To see one of the greatest fantasy stories ever told in modern graphics?
Seconded.John Funk said:Either way, it would be nice if someone made a magical device that tracked down anyone in the world who asked or otherwise whined about a Final Fantasy VII remake and kicked them in the groin. Enough is enough already: Can we please stop talking about it now?
Consider that FF7's "shortcomings" were technical, FF7's storyline was the best by miles, FF8's Zack moments and FF9's social dynamics do not match the depth and connection FF7 did. They were all quality games, but FF7 was not just a great game, it was the best it could be given the technical constraints of the time. 8's greatness was supresses by the.. I dont wanna say convolution of its story, but the rapidness of how it went from terrorist groups to time travelling world enders left alot to be desired, and IX's late intro of some chars meant you could have a familiar strong party of a new weak on, as opposed to say Sid or Vincent who were strong when they joined no matter. VII's pacing and scale were perfect and to see it as it should be would make it not a classic, but a thing of beauty.Slycne said:I hate the internet sometimes- I can't read the phrase "of all time" now without thinking of that weird guy at that award ceremony.
With FF7, it had a lot of very strong points and good gameplay, but I don't see it as really that great. Well, actually, I do think it diserves a good bit of the praise it gets, but when one considers all its shortcomings, I don't see it as that far above other Final Fantasy games. I mean, I found the world and comedic moments in FF8 to be more interesting, and social dynamics of FF9 captured my attention and whimsy more than 7. I guess I don't understand what people see in it that makes it superior to its like-numbered relatives, which are all quality games.
Also, considering how they've just released a ff5 remake for handhelds, who wants to bet that we're not going to get a FF7 mini in a few years, instead?
It's not that hard to follow; It's the workload.Nazrel said:It's hilarious how the more "advanced" things become, the less they can actually do.John Funk said:"[A non-stop story] is one of the reasons, but more importantly, it is a result of considering HD graphics will be the mainstream. Considering the amount of work to make graphics that deserve HD, it is hard to make towns in the conventional style."
By that I mean I'm crying on the inside.
That said, really don't care if they make a remake of 7.
