Petition to Remake Final Fantasy VII Sent to Square-Enix

ff7-logo.jpg

We over at Gaming Today have been slowly watching the rising number of signatures on this online petition to produce a re-make of Final Fantasy VII. The author of the petition has informed us that the petition has crossed the 20,000 signature mark, so he notified Square-Enix. Here’s their response (brace yourselves):

Thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX Customer Support,

We hope this letter answers your questions.

Our parent company, SQUARE ENIX of Japan, has no current plans to create a sequel or remake to that particular title at this time. This is not to say that it will never happen, it’s just that their development teams are currently focusing on numerous other projects.

We hope this information has been of assistance.

Thanks,
Neil- SQUARE ENIX Customer Support
www.square-enix.com

I know: dang. On the plus side, it’s starting to look like they’re getting the message. They probably just seriously do have way too many projects on their table — including about five Final Fantasy games, not to mention another Kingdom Hearts title — to even consider taking on another one right now. Maybe wait until Final Fantasy XIII is out the door and then start hassling them again.

WE NEED FFVII REMADE IT IS THE BEST GAME EVER

Steve

On September 8, 2007 at 4:55 pm

What? No love for FFVI? (FFIV in the U.S.)

I really liked FFVII, but come on, FFVI had the better characters and story. If anything FFVI deserves a remake. FFVII already got a movie. Meh.

No! Do not remake it! FFVII is a classic! Why would you want to go and ruin a classic! They already ruined FFIII by remaking it for GB!
Please, FFVII is a classic game!
It’s not graphics that make up a game, it’s the storyline, like the old Sonic and Zelda games.
Please, if they remake FFVII it’s just another game ruined by Square Enix.
In the time that it would take Enix to remake FFVII, they could use that time to think of a new game, and make that.
Leave FFVII the way it is.
True gamers would know this.
Classic. Remake = bad.

This is stupid, the original FF7 wasn’t that good. The story is your typical cliche RPG. It follows the same routine as in FF1-FF12. It is as generic as it can be. It only appeals to the omgwtfbbq kids.

For those who think that FFVII was your typical RPG, you are seriously in denial! FFVII had THE BEST Story line, so far anyways. The story is deep, with interesting and unforgetful characters. For those who still don’t understand it completely, go to this site. The person who wrote this FAQ is brilliant.

@Hayato: Read the article again. Jonathan said the author of the petition contacted Square-Enix himself. The author then sent us a tip to notify us of what their response was. In no way did the “newsposter” Jonathan contact Square-Enix himself.

On a side note, I recommend you switch over to FireFox. It can catch a lot of your grammatical errors.

On September 8, 2007 at 7:51 pm

@ Daneil: Ouch, burn.

As for this, y’know, it doesn’t surprise and/or bother me. FF7 was a good game, but for me, not worthy of a re-make. So what, they’d give it some higher resolutions here and there so it’d look amazing and maybe fix a few glitches or bugs that were in the original, but the fact remains, adding anything new to it would ruin it. In addition, I prefer my Cloud silent, not with some tacky American voice-over who thinks they’re up themselves (I thought that of most of the characters of X with the exceptions of Auron and Kimahri; a shame one of them is dead and the other shares his thoughts once in every 10 cut-scenes).

Leave the game and appreciate it as is, which is one of the best RPG’s and all-time game out there.

Rekuiem

On September 8, 2007 at 10:15 pm

I’m very glad they decided not to remake FF7 because they will be able to make newer games. Who cares if you remake a great game? Graphics don’t make a good game, graphics just make bad games fun, Plus FF7 isn’t worth replay it’s a way overhyped game sure it is one of the greatest games made, but can’t we give it a rest? if there is any FF game that deserves replay, not remakes but actually just sitting down and beating the game multiple times, it is FFVI.

Well speaking of remakes there is one game that does deserve a remake, Ocarina of Time, Only instead of just remaking the game with good graphics redo dungeons and puzzles and expand content, keep all the music only orchestrate it. that would be amazing.

Ash

On September 8, 2007 at 10:31 pm

Final Fantasy 7 is overdue for a remake, or at least a new game with new clips or something. Kinda like number 6 on the psone. For number six to be redone it took like, 4 years. Its been over double that for number 7…so yeah…anyone who says its not time needs a wake up call.

But square is overworked…they are trying to get thier massive ds and wii library done…and what little else they are making for the ps3 and wii(we all know square is working for nintendo than sony these days)

If history repeats ports come before total remakes. I would expect ports to psp and nintendo wii before a remake..its only logicall.

On September 9, 2007 at 3:17 am

If they replaced Cloud with Thor and Sephiroth with Loki, the game would freaking rock. on the main point, why don’t you tard-mongrels go buy the old PS1 copy and play it on your PS2? i love most of the FF games, but they don’t need to remake FF7. porting to a Gameboy/PSP/DS would be cool but na we don’t need no stinking remake.

On September 9, 2007 at 10:25 am

FFVII was one of the most overrated rpgs ever made. It doesn’t deserve a remake. There are tons of other games that deserve one much more than this one. Cloud and Seph are generic characters and the gameplay isnt that good. Story was run of the mill as well.

I have a friend in the gaming industry, I’m not at liberty to say who. He’s told me that you can’t expect a remake of “Final Fantasy VII” until at least 2010. There are several other big projects Square Enix need to get out of the way first. I hope he’s right.

How are they ruining a classic? They’ll only be ruining it if you choose to buy it. If you don’t buy it, you’ll have nothing to worry about, let the rest of us(the majority of people) enjoy it!

lol..

On September 9, 2007 at 5:07 pm

FFVII? Who cares -.- Let it sit in it’s overrated ness. Squeeenix games are lacking in my opinion nowadays. FFVII truely..wasn’t ubertastic or anything. I say leave it alone, and try to come out with another decent game that snag the peoples attention…Like another Einhander…You can go wrong with that. I swear if you just..throw a Sephiroth clone in FFwhatever that comes out people will be like omg uber I wanna play remakeremake greatest game ever!

Joey

On September 9, 2007 at 5:15 pm

LOL, why would they remake any Final Fantasy below FFVII, they remake them on DS every year! Get over it. No one likes FF I-VI, Final Fantasy didn’t sell till Final Fantasy VII. FFVII has what the other titles don’t have: dark story, variety in side quests: bike racing, skateboarding, adult language/humor, funny situations (falling in toilet etc), dramatic story and characters that you care about. FF I-VI didn’t have main characters, sorry to say it, no one stands out except the bosses.

Jak Morris

On September 9, 2007 at 6:55 pm

I think they should remake it sometime in the future. Not anytime soon though. They should make one for a new generation, those who weren’t around when FFVII came out. They defenitley should not start doing it now though. Right now i’m really looking foward to Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Kingdom Hearts 3 (was never actually a fan of Final Fantasy, mainly because they were RPGs, but i love Action RPGs, hence Kingdome Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XIII). That gives me an idea. What if they remake Final Fantasy VII into an Action RPG. I love action!!!!!!! But if not then i’ll enjoy Kingdom Hearts 3 and Versus XIII.

Jak Morris

Regardless of how much fanboys are going to say about FFVII, one thing remains… all these fanboys have never played any other game in the series. Saying FFVII is “Teh best game evar!!1!” is like saying that Grand Theft Auto is the best example of family friendly entertainment. It boils down to a generational thing. The new breed that only got started with VII are going to say that it is the best. A real fan that encompasses ALL the games in the series will tell you it breaks down like this: Final Fantasy Tactics had the best story, FFVI had the best villain, and FFIX lives in my heart as the best for the greatest hero, Vivi.

What Squeenix needs to do is focus on their ORIGINAL IP’s. Remakes just show that they want to make a quick buck.

There, my two cents.

P.S. The Chrono series needs another game more than final fantasy.

I’d love to see an FF7 remake, but I have my doubts of it being announced at the TGS. Square only has one more gem that people have failed to notice..Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross. The only thing that would appease me if they didn’t announce an FF7 remake would be a new Chrono Trigger game. I could see a ton of people jumping on board if they came out with that, but I still think FF7 would easily destroy the Halo market. My biggest fear is S-E’s threat to SCEA about their flip-flop marketing. All the haters in the room can whine and cry all they want, because when FF7 comes, you’ll shut up and play it like everyone else. You might love it, you might hate it, but you’ll play it.

the angel of suggestion

On September 22, 2007 at 5:53 am

My opinion is that a remake of a magnificent rpg game such as Final Fantasy 7 would be a very exellent idea indeed, Final Fantasy 7 maybe has been overrated a bit but that doesent prevent millions of fans that absolutly love this game to turn their backs on such a exciting, pulse pounding and mind blowing project, so i think i have a vision of the future if S-E make it: fans all over the world will crowd the nearest gameshop that has the game, just like people crowded the nearest bookshop for deathly hallows, millions of fans with happy eager smiles will go to any legnths to get the remake and plus the company will earn so much money that theyre families will never go hungry again. if they refuse: the millions of fans that were so eager to know whats happening will be upset and perhaps a little angry that such a remake was scrunched up and thrown in the trash or perhaps fireplace, also e-mails and messages may pop up quite alot about the re-make of final fantasy 7 not being released and lastly the money that was infront of you has turned into ash.

Just one more thing: make sure that the plot, story ect isnt changed if you remake it, it will probably end bad, graphical enhancements and improved music are ideal, new spells, abilities etc could be a good idea too but thats your desision to make.

this is my opinion and no one elses,
thank you

Actually, Dirge of Cerberus WAS a sequel to FF7. So to anyone saying they wish a sequel were made, probably has no idea that DoC was infact, a sequel.

However. The likelyhood of an actual original-game remake being done, is possible, but I honestly can’t see it happening untill atleast 2010. And that’s just it simply being ANNOUNCED.

FF13 and it’s 2 side-games will be released late 2008, to early 2009. I hope that says something about the likelyhood of a FF7 remake, in the near future. Hell, they might announce it in 2010. But don’t get your hopes up.

They’re jerking us around, because they know we want it. And due to that, they’re denying the hell out of it. They’ve hinted that it’s possible, but have yet to say “yeah, we plan on doing it. We’re not doing it now, but we DO plan on doing it.”

Rather they’re trying to suprize us after smashing our sunshines, or they seriously do not plan to remake the game. Weigh out your options, and realize that you have a 50/50 chance of getting that remake.

Only time will tell.

However, I still think that the developers need to stop jerking us around. They’re having entirely too much fun with it. They know we want this remake, so they’re going to do everything in their power to open us up to “it’s possible” without saying anything definite at all. Ever.

Stfu all you FF7 haters. I say that FF7 is awsome and should come out with a remake. It will most likely attract more people to the PS3 and give a chance for the people who haven’t played the game a chance to see how sweet this game really is. It would also be interesting to see the entire game w/ better graphics.

Ok. First off, Halo sucks big time, anyone who likes Halo are just jealous of Final Fantasy’s greatness. If they do remake FF7 I would buy just because i hvae the ps1 version and would like to see what everything would like on current gen systems. Chrono Trigger would also be an awsome remake. Chrono Cross however is not. Final Fantasy 7 stands (in my eyes) the best game of all time. Graphics dont make a good game, the storyline does. So if they remake FF7. They better not jack it up. FF7 rules, Halo sucks.

FFVII was a good game, and I’d rather see it on the psp than the ps3, I didn’t drop $600 to play games that came out 10 years ago. And to those that are saying Halo sucks and FFVII rules. Yeah, Halo does suck, but stop being COMPLETE ING RETARDS! Halo is an FPS you know what that means you idiots? First Person Shooter. FFVII is an RPG, that’s Role Playing Game. Two completely different genres. It’s like comparing a tank to a clown. Both entertaining, but in very different ways.

Final Fantasy VII is not a classic.
Final Fantasy VI is.

Listen all you fanboys who are clamoring for a FF7 remake should play the game again now.

analyze each and every part.
write an essay on how each little detail makes you feel.
then come back to us, and let us know about your findings.

Make a good argument as to why it should other than just labeling it and saying ‘it’s good.’

because as far as I’m concerned it is mediocre.

im not saying 6 is bad but its like a repeat final fantasy 7 was the only one that was different in almost everyone theres a guy and a girl and they end up together, and final fantasy 7 is a classic because it was the first game to be on the cover of play station magazine

weclock

On November 11, 2007 at 12:46 pm

1. 6 was a culmination of all of Squares efforts to make an RPG. They weren’t trying anything out because they knew what would work.
2. Did you even play six? do you know what it’s about? Six is not a love story.
3. Just because it was on the cover of playstation magazine, it does not make it a classic. Lots of games end up on the covers of Magazines, even the first cover. Are they considered classics? Final Fantasy 7 has too many plot holes, has purely horrible graphics (for it’s time even) and many of the characters are unexplored or just retarded.

Play Final Fantasy 7 again, today, and see if you still feel as emotional about the story. See if you can even navigate it’s clunky level design.

Final Fantasy 7 is not the best game ever, but it was entertaining for the short amount of time I spent playing it, until I moved on to play Perfect Dark.

Steph

On November 11, 2007 at 5:01 pm

I don’t quite know how I feel about a re-make to be honest. After reading some of the comments I can see both sides of the story.

Intially the fan-girl in me does go ‘squeeee, YAY, RE-MAKE!’ because I think it would be excellent to see some of my favourite characters and locations re-made with more detailed graphics. However, if they even touched the story line, the diologue – I think I’d be really annoyed.

And then that makes it sound a bit pointless doesn’t it, spending all that time on a game to not change anything but the quality of the graphics. But honestly I think that’s all I’d want to see changed.

So yeah, I think I’m all for a re-make, but if they change anything but the graphics I think they’ll have some answering to do to the more hardcore FF fans out there. And, if they don’t choose to re-make it, well, I’m still happy to play the original version – after all, Cloud’s blocky arms are worth a giggle.

I do absolutely love FF7, it was the first RPG I ever played and changed me into the fem-geek I am now, but I can quite happily admit it’s not the best game out there. I will, however, be a dedicated and loyal fan to the final fantasy series of games forevermore and will – albiet quite stupidly – will probably continue to buy anything that they choose to release, whether it be a re-make or not.

Oh, and yes, Vivi is the best :mrgreen:

This game is so great, I am sick to death of people saying otherwise :???: its the masterpiece of the entire series and always will be. Why the hell do people believe FFVI is the best game in the series?? I mean sh!t it is a great game it had great character development but storywise it was so dissapointing, and also the main villain of the game is a frikkin clown, A CLOWN?? I mean sure he evil and likes to destroy crap, other than that the guy has absolutly no motives at all! Sephiroth was a much better villain and had a great backstory and had a frikkin mad weapon! He slaughters everyone in Nibelheim, also burning the entire place, badly wounds Tifa and Zack, kills Aeris, summons METEOR to destroy all life so that he can absorb the spirit energy. How more badass can you get?? What about Kefka?? Oh lets just go poison a river bla bla bla I mean he is the est villain of all time next to Kuja but anyway…So the english translation was bad so what?? you can still make it out if you try. Oh yeah and just for the record I have played all final fantasy’s and I did play FF6 BEFORE ff7. 6 was good but 7 is better.

FFVII was one of the best in the series. The only other FF game that can rival that would be VIII, or X/X-II. After seeing the PS3 demo, I was left in shock, my jaw agape, having had a little taste of what could come to be. This game really captured my heart back in 1997, and moved me deeply to the point of tears. It truly was a beautiful work of art. In my opinion, everything was perfect aside from the repetitiveness of the battle system (easily cured by making some minor tweaks). The characters were truly 3-dimensional and were what really drove the story. The music was incredible, and (as you can tell)obviously thought out for each scene. I almost cried during Aerith’s mother’s story regarding her husband who died in the war…how she never gave up, and was always at the station…poignant moment. When Aerith died, I had tears rolling down my cheeks. You just feel such a sense of heartbreaking loss, especially after her & Cloud’s “date” at the Gold Saucer. The second time I cried was when the party finds Professor Ghast’s recording. It makes you think even more about aerith, and the sense of loss deepens. The 3rd time was at the end, when you see how Aerith’s sacrifice saved the world.
This is a monumental story, and it would be incredible to see it remade (with everything intact) for the current hardware.

The xbox 360 will be my one and only system of the current gen (that is unless FFVII is remade and I’ll buy a PS3 in a heartbeat if it happens). I do love the FF series and i’ve played through every one of them other than the original tactics, 1-3, and CC, but VII is imo the greatest. I could easily go through XIII by borrowing a ps3 from a friend but like i said.. I’m not buying one if VII isn’t remade. And ffs halo 3 is amazing anyone that bashes it more than likely hasn’t played it online (or got horribly owned when they did :lol: )

I think a FF7 remake would be great. Man, I’d even go for a continuation of the story like with the movie, or even like they did for FFX-2. It is a great series, and even though I am a huge fan of it 7, I don’t particularly like either one any more then the others because they all do have different storylines, though some with more similar to others. However, if they are to remake it, or continue it or whatever they decide to do, I would hope that they wait to a time when they can give ample consideration and focus on it. They are smart enough to realize that making a remake, or a continuation needs careful planning in order to make it well received by its players. I kind of worry with how many projects Square Enix has going right now that they may place less attention and focus on some of their projects compared with others.

Thank you for your time.

:neutral: yes, please! i would love to wait to see FFVII on PS3 because its 4D! it’s look going to be supercool. please remake that thing! make it like an 3D characters from Advent Children. and make the same actions, make the same place, make the same characters, make the same world, make the same weapons, and EVERYTHING from FFVII(PS1)! Make the same weapons, items, accessories, armors, walkthrough (maybe; if you can/can’t), characters, places, world, actions, materia, chocobos, powers, enemies, battle/fight, monsters, everything! please remake FFVII for PS3!

On December 9, 2007 at 11:01 pm

Just for the sake of playing devil’s advocate, I’d like to point out that the developer(s) of the Final Fantasy series, including director Hironobu Sakaguchi have left Square-Enix entirely forming a new company called Mistwalker. Not to say I wouldn’t enjoy the remake of FFVII as much as the next person, but if nobody else has noticed the sudden decline since FFX then you need a smack. It’s no coincidence that he left and the games suddenly turned to an utterly disgusting shape of their former selves, spawning universally hated titles such as FFX-2 which was incredibly bad. All in all, the idea of a remake seems amazing, but after destroying FFX with a sequel and the original creators not on board, I personally see it being mediocre at best. If they happened to hire Mistwalker to oversee the game that would be a different story entirely.

I like FFVII, actually I like all the FF games (and most of the others SE produces). I, personally, would love to see it remade, but I get that they have a lot on their plate. I just hope that we can “bug” them enough after they make some of them, to remake the game. Cause’ FFVII is a great game and, to me, it deserves to be remade, so more people can experince it.

On December 12, 2007 at 7:18 pm

Why must some of you knock other people’s choice in “greatest” game. First off, it’s not like their opinion is any greater or less than yours, so what do you care what they think. I personally loved FFVII, but only as much as I loved FFX. The very first RPG I played was FFX and I have since played most of the other big name RPG franchises out there. One could make the arguement that ALL the games have one single story line: Get together with some characters, level up, save the world. Many of the people who say this game is over rated probably are RPG lovers, or are simply super supportive of their own choice in game. The reason FFVII could be call the greatest is because even after all these years, the attention still paid to it is still tremendous. Greatness is measured by legacy, not opinion.

Hi,

Final fantasy VII wasn’t just “another” game like some kids said here, it had
a big story behind the game itself and a great influence on the west world. It was the first
RPG game (turn base) that succeeded like never before. All of you that don’t understand
what power has FFVII please read this article:
article http://xenon.stanford.edu/~geksiong/papers/sts145/Squaresoft%20and%20FF7.htm

However, I think there is a place for a remake to that classic and amazing game. As we all saw,
the demo of FFVII on PS3 was amazing. The remake will give new players (that didn’t played
ffVII) a new layout (a way better graphics) for one of the best RPG-stories ever written, to one
of the most interesting story flow that I’ve ever seen in RPG games, to a great game play with
materia and all the interesting stuff.

So far FFVII was the deepest game ever created (from my point of view), there were a lot of
secrets paths, materias, secret stories, characters and also at the end (weapons, guide book).
There was a lot of stuff to do besides the main quest (other ff games had cards and some stupid things).

Last words, there is a reason to make a remake, to revive the most magnificent game ever
created. And for all those kids that don’t understand it yet, hi hi hi, you should wait for the remake.

best regards,
sallaboy

I think the chances on Square making FF 7 again is rather high to be honest…the game was a top seller for Square, and with Advent Children being a pretty good seller all around i’m certain it’s gotten Square’s attention.

Brian

On December 14, 2007 at 11:34 am

For the record, “Squaresoft” (now square-enix) didn’t create any of the Final Fantasies, they produced them. Hirobono Sakaguchi created them, along with 2 other partners, who have recently split from Square-Enix. Although I value the option of a remake, my question remains the same. Why pressure Square to remake a game they didn’t design in the first place. Ignorance is bliss isn’t it? Even if Square did remake it, I of course would buy it; however don’t expect it to be the marvel your all seeking. When you played FFVII originally, you were a different person, in different circumstances and probably years younger. You think differently now, feel differently, and most of all, everyone is looking for something different in the remake. Regardless of what your looking for, the remake will never be the “same” game because in essence to remake it is to change it. Now if your a true fan, and your favorite game must be changed, who would you want designing and leading the changes, the original creators or the marketers and distributors?

P.S. I am in no way downplaying the amount of sales/respect/greatness of FFVII or its potential remake, I am simply looking at it from many perspectives.

Lannen O'Rouke

On December 14, 2007 at 1:00 pm

@ Brian

If it turns out to be like the tech demo then i for one would buy it without a doubt and regardless of who made it.

Either way you slice it, Squaresoft made a huge profit off of Final Fantasy 7, 9.5 million copies were sold worldwide and even the strategy guide boasted over one million copies in print, so it stands to reason that it would be a boon for Square-Enix to at least take in into serious consideration.

With all due respect who else should loyal fans of Final Fantasy 7 ‘pressure’ into a remake?

To answer some of your comments it would be thus:

It would have to be the original design team, or at least as many as they can get.

Graphics should be the only real change in the game, adding mini-quests/ mini-games could be allowed and still fit within the game (I.E. expanding Gold Saucer)

Yes we are different than we were back then, but there are plenty of games that have been brought out and remade to other systems and have been well received by people who remember them, Nintendo is reviving quite a few older games much to this veteran gamers delight.

On December 17, 2007 at 6:52 pm

Final Fantasy VII is hands down my favorite video game of all time. No other game had ever made me feel the way it did and no other has made me feel quite like it sense. I bought it before I even had a PS1 with the hopes of playing it on my friends’ consoles whenever I had the chance. I got excited awhile back when rumors first started about a remake, and I told myself it would be the reason to buy a PS3 if it was console-exclusive. I will never sell my original copy of FF7, and will continue to replay it every few years, but I wouldn’t mind a remake at all if it was the same gameplay, with nex-gen graphics and new/expanded mini games. You gotta admit that if Square Enix were to start such a project, with such an enormous fan base as it is, you know the size of it would have to be on par with the FFX project, if not bigger. If it comes to fruition, I’ll mos def play it.

Being a comparatively late fan of the series (the first I played was FFX) I have launched into this series hearing from everyone how amazing FFVII apparently was. And I am a poor college student funnily enough and not able to dish out 75 dollars for the game on E-Bay. So that is essentially why I would want this game remade.

I have played nearly every game that can be available since, however, and I must say that for its plot I prefer FFX over all the others. To me the plot was more gripping and made me care for the characters.

And to anyone saying Final Fantasy’s cut scenes ruin the game: you are insane. While I am unable to speak for the entire fan base I know that I often find myself playing in order to get to the next cut scene and see the story progress. Forgive me for rather playing a game that utilizes literary techniques proven through years of authors rather than playing your RPG’s that focus upon battle techniques and such.

:neutral:
come on guys this is not just a FAN demand by all players who actually played this game. i seen the movie and i was really into the characters, and in other camos, because i NEVER PLAYED THE GAME YET!
the reason that releasing the PS3 console game in this generation with a new polyographic technology and provide with the same classic story with original music scores and magnificent cinamatics, surely people like myself would fall in love and understand why this game was one of the greatest series in the FF chronicles.
there is many reasons why the remake can be benifical to the company. if the gameplay is beautiful, if the story is still heartwarming, and if it still leaves an impression that its a trump card for square enix, then why not make it for both fans and non-fans-that-will-become-one. :smile:

plus i cant find a good price for the PS of FFVII, too expensive

FF7 Gamer

On January 3, 2008 at 10:27 pm

WOW this is a great story, i got this game for the 1st time in 2004 in a small pawn shop i was looking for a ps1 game since my ps2 stopped reading ps2 games they had other games for little kids with out a case so i picked up FF7 and it looked cool with the guy(cloud) with a big sword the back looked even better until i opened the booklet i saw the mini games and that didnt appeal to me, i was having doubts but the it was priced at $2 :shock: so i decided to buy it and at first it was boring (the 1st time i had played an RPG) the O=OK/enter was annoying so one day at school my friend asked me what games i had for ps2 so i told him but when i told him about FF7 he said he would buy it from me i was frustrated by it since i couldnt pass it (but i liked the story) at that time it seemed like a deal since i would make an $8 profit so i sold it to him :grin: a while later i saw it in k-mart it was priced at 29.99 brand new i was like hmm so i didnt buy it. when Advent children came out i bought the dvd and i tried to look for FF7 at k-marts but couldnt find it so i looked on-line and was amazed that it was $70+ :shock: so i felt/feel so stupid selling it for $10 :cry: :evil: i still talk to him and he said he sold it :evil: but now i have 1 copy i bought on e bay for $46 a not so bad since thats the price of a new game these days i recently bought Crisis core on ebay for $42 and now i have the whole story :grin: but i bet they will remake it since in crisis core when it ends it says to be continued on FF7 so im glad to have enjoyed FF7 series and a remake would go along Great with Advent children and crisis core in terms of graphics because the old FF7 doesnt feed right with the other two having better graphics so buy crisis core when its released here in the U.S. of A so they can be driven by the potential money they could make if they re made it MONEY MAKES PEOPLE DO THINGS :neutral:

Way Too Into It

On January 16, 2008 at 1:09 am

Look. Ok i was reading through the comments and i noticed some of u thinks that it will ruin the classic, but i say neigh. If they made it exactly the same it would only bring the classic back, not too mention would introduce it to the new age and the kids today. It’s not like ppl r going to the stores today to pick up the original one….in fact i dont even think u can get ps1 games today…..what im saying is that it wont destroy the game…it will only enhance it. Better graphics, same story, same events…..no way in hell would that destroy the classic. SQUARE-ENIX MUST DO THIS REMAKE….FOR THE FANS AND THE UNBELIEVABLE PROFIT. THEY PROBABLY DO HAVE A LOAD OF GAMES THEY ARE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW BUT THE FACT IS THAT IF THEY PUT OFF SOME OTHER GAME THAT PROLLY WONT GET TOO MUCH ATTENTION…THEY COULD MAKE THIS AND GET AN UNBELIEVABLE AMT OF MONEY, BREAK RECORDS, AND SELL MORE SYSTEMS THEN EVER BEFORE!

All you people who are against the final fantasy vii remake suck. have you even seen the ps3 tech demo? It looks crazy. As long as they leave the storyline and gameplay style untouched what is there to worry about? Remake = Ruined Game? I think not. This is the best idea ever, and i read in a new game informer that they haven’t completely given up on it yet… it’s just unlikely. True Final Fantasy VII fans would be ecstatic about this… not putting it to shame. Don’t complain its going to ruin it unless it comes out and actually does. And then there’s still the original. SO… quit your whining and support it already. (Ha… I agree with Dragon. lol Graphical Updates only please.)

Tommy

On January 18, 2008 at 8:38 am

I’m on the fence with this one.
I played Final Fantasy VII from start to finish numerous times. There seemed to be always something you missed each time and the storyline was engrossing, it captured your imagination and dragged you into the game.
The game was full of daft glitches and felt incomplete so with a remake i’d like to see their mistakes put right, however i feel they would ruin the game and go all hollywood and over the top.
If the remake was to be as per the tech demo and the film advent children, i think they would sell more than the original, especially if you were able to revive Aeris at the end like in the original plans for the game.

Josh

On January 20, 2008 at 1:31 pm

Of course they are going to remake it you noobs… the game was never finished and the movie never finished off the game. The ff7 series hasnte ended yet so what are they gunna do? make another movie? maybe… but my guess would be another psp or ps3 game. The original writers for ff7 are no longer with square so they are probobly taking “ptches” on story plots in there free time. and we all know how “busy” they are

time to put all these 7 haters right.ill admit 7 got me into the series but people keep saying its nothing comared to the others especially 4, 6 in us.after 7 i was hooked.i v got 1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9 on the playstation 10, 10-2, 12, and dirge of cerberus on ps2, the online 11, 3 i managed to download, the films spirits within and advent children.and im ready for crisis core on the psp and 13 on ps3.iv even got a fighting game with cloud and sephiroth in it called ergheiz!now to point. i can understand some veteran gamers being loyal to 4 as it was the game of their time, an a great one at that,but having played and completed every FF ever created (oh and the FF tactics, got them too!) it has to be 7 for me hands down with 4 2nd and 8 close third.opinions will be different im sure but thats the great thing about FF as theres something for every1.If 7 is remade, great if not im happy with the original as IT IS the greatest game EVER created.

I would like to see a remake. I’m not obsessed with the game, but it is my favorite of all the Final Fantasy games that I have played. The game, in my opinion, was an innovator of it’s time, and I would like to see what would be like if it was given new life, so to speak.

I think they should remake it but keep the story line exactly the same no adding or deleting parts but i only say to remake it for the graphics…i love the game bc i play games for their storylines but i have so many friends that refuse to play it bc of its graphics and no one takes for granted that back in its time it had mindblowing graphics but if they remade the graphics then i could all my friends to play and love it just as much as i do

ing remake the damn game i have a copy that is in mint condition worth at least 250$ and have beaten it at least 8 times with all everything mastered. dont change anystory lines or weapons. and eially dont change the materia or materia usage (like all, mime, 4 cut, steal, sense, KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND-mime, elemental) all that dont change it cause when they do remake it(they had better) i just want the graphics to be better and not much more cut scences. you guys who hat ff7 or any ff for that matter, and another thing cut the classic leave it the may it is bull. :twisted: :evil: :mad: :sad: :???: :neutral: :wink: :cool: :grin:

they should remake. It is a good game. the story is endless but i could say that for me the story the plot and the characters are timeless and unforgettable. Plus it would be fun to see the new gamers to play a classic RPG game which takes weeks to finish and really deep thinking to understand.

OK people look at it this way , if they hadnt made final fantasy 7 and it came out for the PS3 now it would be the best game ever made because the story is the and the charters are second to none and the graphics of the PS3 would make it truly the best selling game ever .

I understand how some of you dont want to see the remake , i mean i would want them to change nothing about the game if they did just the graphics , keep the story , keep it all just the update on the graphics .

The demo of the game look so good i though finally they will make it again , after the movie , vincents game , crisis core you haft to update the dad that gave birth to them .

This is the best game i have ever played , and i put all the role playing games i play up against FFVII and they always fall short .

Look the remake would only need to change the graphics nothing more . everything about it is perfect the way it is .

On March 1, 2008 at 3:05 pm

the remake is only wanted by fans that claim they love final fantasy 7 so much that they probably dont even play it anymore. i think that them remaking this game is a really stupid idea. they really need to concentrate on new fresh ideas. the game is definatly overrated to the extreme. thats why advent children didnt make it to the theater. watching that movie was like staring at a single cloud in the sky that never moved. there was no thrill or suspense it was stupid it just looked really nice graphicly. someone on this forum mentioned putting it on psp. that is the only good idea that can possibly come out of this game being remade. P.S if they did remake it and give the title to Ps3 that would be a bad marketing decision for them. seeing how ps3 is probably the crapiest system right now. 360 is way better in every way. and before anyone says its not look up info on comparisons, and look up info on games that came out for both systems. they all played better on 360. and for those who say that the characters are unforgetable. yea of course they are because u here about final fantasy 7 everywhere and they wont stop making crap on it. thats why there unforgetable. there is so much more i would like to say about this remake being a waste of time. but it probably would turn into a 20 page essay. and plus final fantasy 13 looks bad ass.

just let me say one thing to this
i thought about buy a ps3 only for a ff7 remake. they havn’t done it. i havn’t bought it. i know about hundret people onli in this city plaing video games 10 dosent care about final fantasy 89 havent bought a ps3 after ff7 wasnt remade at least 40 of them said bevor “i’ll buy one for shure” all of them wont buy another ff if 13 sucks as 12 did. enix havn’t ani more chances running to save its community here. i hope for a good ff13 and a remake maybe at 2010. if 13 sucks there wond be a 14 for me. and at least i have every final fantasy game but ff9 …

On March 7, 2008 at 7:36 am

Ok I agree it is a very hyped game…if not over hyped. Myself and alot of the people outside of Japan, this was the breakthrough game. That got people not just into Final Fantasy, but RPG’s. It made Final Fantasy big to a western market.

I would love to see a remake personally, as it is an incredable game way ahead of its graphical limitations. If you don’t want one…don’t play it. But you know you’ll end up shelling out an buying it anyway.

Label me a fanboy uberomfglolzors if you want, I dont care. 110% up for a remake.

please remake it, welove it, its the best and most memorable game since the marios! it would make a ton of money, but if remade the story could not be changed, not even one little bit! for the doubters about the remake, this would not ruin a classic, i know for a fact those who doubt t will still buy it anyway!!lol its true! even if u feel like its been ruined after the remake, we can always revert back to the perfect, ahead of it time, magical version on ps1. this of course, whatever the case may be will always be loved. but please give us the chance to experience the ahead of its time game, on the ahead of it time console! you wont regret it Square-Enix. thank you

“On the plus side, it’s starting to look like they’re getting the message.”

Um… that letter that supposedly suggests you’re making headway, is obviously an automated response. It’s kinda a giveaway when it says right at the beggining: “We hope this letter answers your questions.”

Also the title “Final Fantasy VII” is not even anywhere in the response. If you want the petition to stand out and catch attention, you’re going to have to do a little more than email it and hope for the best. In fact electronic petitions are pretty useless, because you get people who have a staggering amount of free time on their hands which the use to “sign” these petitions over and over. I would suggest a convential, well thought out, composition on why the game should be remade with hand signed signatures.

On March 17, 2008 at 2:49 pm

i have no doubt in my mind that if ff7 was remade, all you talkers would go out and buy it. you know it and i know it. i, for one, am for the remake. i dont see how it would do any harm. even if it is only better graphics. i know know graphics isnt what makes a game, but it plays an important role. visual stimulation has a great effect on the mind. with ff7, we dont have to worry about horrible gameplay or terrible storyline. update the graphics and put in a couple new things. thats all we need. just make it!

Danny

On March 21, 2008 at 1:12 am

A remake of FFVII with the same story line but better graphics would not only save ps3 it would be argueably one of the best games ever made. it would take time since SQUARE ENIX is backed up, but i would but a PS3 solely for this game and so would thousands of FFVII fans. the petition is now closing in on 40,000 if it keeps rising eventually they will remake the game.

We are just trying to keep a good game alive many of us that want the remake own the game for either playstation 1 or PC and want in brought into todays technology with graphics. This would also allow them to revamp some of the crappy game mechanics from the original and if they wanted the could add to the end of the game something was going on between the end of 7 and advent children. so what was it why not but in the end I am sure as long as they just revamp the original story of the game everyone that loved the original would buy it and a playstation helping 2 of the best companies out there I am sorry XBOX and WII can go to hell they have for RPGS in comparison I am an RPG buff so SONY ALL THE DAMN WAY

On March 23, 2008 at 2:22 pm

On March 28, 2008 at 7:55 am

Aha lol that message they sent us was a YES
who cares if it takes a couple of years for them to decide on it
that will be enough time for me to get a ps3
i agree with what people are saying like if its not broken then dont fix it but you must remember, remakes are very popular
ok i think remake is the wrong word because that means something will be changed
it should be called FFVII- Digitally remastered
that way they can use the ps3s full potential, not change any of the story and have THE best game ever made without people having to buy a psone

and come on
who has played the kingdom hearts series
they allways have a secret ending then they WATCH peoples reactions, and by popular demand they made kh2 and again they have annother secret ending that is now becoming
KH – birth by sleep

now take crisis core
they have another secret ending (i wont spoil it)

But yeah square has a perfect marketing strategy, they like to watch people faces go red until they pop ;)

So long as they keep the characters silent and don’t tweak the main story or the chocobo bits (loved every second of my 10+ plays) they remake and add away.

To those who dis this game…Just because you don’t like it does not make it crap…just because I think you are over-opinionated psuedo intellectual wanna be does not mean you are.

Due to the fan base for such a game the profits that could be made is pretty good and well worth the time and effort…want a remake? don’t demand, just tell them there is a lot of people who would pay £40+ to buy a remake of this (in my opinion) awesome RPG.

I’m not so much bothered about the souped up graphics, though it would be nice i admit, but i never got a chance to play it the first time around and it’s hard to find a copy around that works and people are willing to sell… and i don’t have a ps1 memory card either.. so a re release at least would make me happy and i’m sure a lot of people who didn’t manage to get ff7 the first time around!

I guess remake should be made for future generations since players out there would never understand the coolness of (old) FF7 :) They would just think “Oh, another game with GameBoy graphics…”

On May 4, 2008 at 9:31 am

Hello!!First i gave a damn about ff7.I saw the ff7 movie and i was stunned by the super graphics!!!(thanks to Tetsuya Nomura of course).But still i was confused because the story was too complicated of course.At April 2008, i borrowed from a friend FF7 crisis core.Today 04/05/08 i finished it and when i saw Zack die,i cried about an hour(people believe me!it was very sad) :cry: When i played it i understood a lot!!Now only FF7 remains for me to play and i wished to play Cloud with excellent graphics.That’s the reason i want Tetsuya Nomura and his team to remake FF7.I don’t care for what console it will be made!!I’ll go and buy that console,what ever it takes!!!Zack 4 ever!!!
Thanks!!

FFVII is by far the best rpg game ever made and i think that a remake would be a massive seller, especially for ps3. theres people that say they don’t think it should happen but i put money down that they would buy it anyway.
it is the best out the lot and shud be remade.

I absolutely love final fantasy VII and to have it remade would be imense!! I loved FFVII crisis core the graphic were unreal and to have our more memorable game brought back to life with better graphic would be amazing!!! I have only enjoyed 1 game on the ps3 ONE thats it and not really looking forward to any more! Even Final fantasy XIII doesnt excite me as ff have lost their sense of story! They have become far to complex with the words the wars and the types of people and tribes!!! Bring back the original as it captured our hearts minds and hours of the day!!!!!!

Dash

On August 14, 2008 at 10:19 am

Remake! Remake! Remake!
All that needs to be changed is the graphics, additional storyline and sidequests/mini games etc can be added and will still be the amazing game we all love. I vote yes, give the new generations the same feeling we had when discovering ff7 in a modern tone.

I have no words to describe this, but…if square-enix makes this…
Final fantasy VII will be, AGAIN, the best game ever!:)
I wanna play this game in my PS3 so mutch!
What square-enix was thinking when it made the tech demo?
OFCOURSE it will be like this…
Square-enix can resurrect Final fantasy VII for sure…
So PLEASE MADE THIS GAME!!!
ITS A GIFT THAT YOU GIVE for all of us!!! :D

In my opinion ff7 is one of the GREATEST! games ever made and definatly the best of the ff series, which for me went down hill after ff9 im currently playin ff7 on pc and to re-live the game (with some slight adjustments like hiding the items and materia in new areas) in hi-def would be awesome also it would be introduced to the younger generations because common it was released in 1997.
SO PLZ REMAKE IT! AND DONT PUT ANY OF THAT 300ft JUMPING CRAP IN LIKE IN THE MOVIE!!

PS. Make Tifas boobs bigger :shock: lol oj and keep the world map because that crappy crap thing that was in ff10 p***ed me off! :mrgreen:

I know his post is waaayyy back up there, but “no”, the most over-rated game series of all time is Halo.

The main reason I’d like a remake is so that I can play it over again without the headaches induced by ty resolution and bad graphics. I only beat it once, when I was like 8 years old, so playing it again would be completely new to me.

I think it would be sweet, to let the newer generation of gamers to play older games, and a remake would do just that.

I Want a Remake Of FFVII because they dont sell it no more, i want it, and its considered 1 of the greatest RPG’s in history. End Of Story. And to SONY and The SQUARE company Think About The profits From Reselling A Already Best Seller From 11 Years Ago. The Fand Have Been Waiting Too Long You Already Teased us Now Let us Get The Whole Thing.

Lucho

On September 14, 2008 at 12:07 am

Give it a rest already. FFVII has had way too much publicity. It’s had an entire series of games made based on itself. I’m not saying it wasn’t a good game, on the contrary, it was. But it’s already had so many things to make it more popular and get Square some more money that it just seems overrated now. Square needs to focus on making a new game that has an awesome story (as good or better than FFVII). Chrono Trigger was a better game than FFVII. Unfortunately this next generation of gamers didn’t play any 16-bit games or roms and they don’t realize how many games are out there that are better. In any case FFVII is way overrated and the 3 games that Square has made that are too underrated are FFVI, FFIX, and Chrono Trigger. They should remake these before any other games if they were to remake whatsoever.

Me

On September 14, 2008 at 12:19 am

To Blah:

Remaking a game wouldn’t allow new gamers to play the old great games. To them it’s just a new game that they haven’t played before.

To Trent:

Kefka is considered to be one of the best villains of the entire series and he was definitely better than sephiroth. All sephiroth ever did was kill every single thing that was in sight. Kefka actually had a plan for everything and the story fitted Kefka in perfectly.

I agree with Lucho about the FFVII getting too much publicity. Square’s already got enough money especially from FFXI so they wouldn’t need to remake FFVII just for the money, in which case they should just remake a game because it’d be a great game to remake. I vote for FFIX!

kenny

On October 18, 2008 at 3:50 pm

I would love FFVII to be remade coz the storyline was amazing and is one of the best FF games made, but i will agree that there is a hell of a lot of spin off games for it plus the film so really a remake aint worth it and i don’t think square will remake it no matter wa people do.

FFIX was well underrated, wasn’t as good as FFVII or FFVIII but it was still a an amazing game an people don’t give it the credit it should have.

Anyway i say wait an see wa FFXIII an FFXIIIVerses is gona be like, coz they look amazing. Shame they stoped working on Verses tho :sad: looked the better of the two.

Moi je pense qu’un remake de FF7 serait génial :) ! Après un jeu comme Crisis Core, ça ferait un tabac n’importe où dans le monde ! Qui ne peut pas rêver de jouer à la suite de C.C avec un graphisme similaire à celui-ci, quand on est un grand fan de la saga final fantasy . Certes le graphisme du ff7 sur ps1 n’est pas très mauvais non plus ! Mais ils peuvent faire mieux, et feront mieux ! Donc j’opte pour un remake de ff7 sur ps3! J’achèterai la console juste pour ce jeu et je ne suis certainement pas la seule ;) ! Un remake du 7 serait vraiment très commercial, il se vendrait très bien ! Nous savons que faire un remake coûte chère et qu’il faudrait d’après une source 300 personnes à travailler la dessus pour le faire, mais ces effort porterons leurs fruits, ce sera un grand succès :D !

On November 29, 2008 at 4:31 am

Gosh, what an argument. I know I’d like to see a remake of the game. But, ONLY if nothing but the graphics changes. There are several huge advantages to remakes, and one of them is voice acting! :wink: I’d love to hear the parts that are shown in the game in true dialogue.

Take, for example, the game Jade Co. It’s one of my all time favorites. I’d do something REALLY horrible to the people who remade (if they did) the game and changed the soundtrack. It’s the best part of the game! :mrgreen:

And to those who say that Final Fantasy games in general don’t have a good plot, I’d like to see YOU come up with well-developed characters (even if some of them are cliche) and the names for ALL the countries and ALL the cities and ALL the species of animals (like the chocobos) from the top of your head. :razz:

It’s not easy to come up with such things…you need to have a vast imagination.

Final Fantasy VII has one of the best plots I’ve ever seen, and the characters hold a very special place in my heart. Crisis Core was absolutely excellent. There are many symbols and hidden meanings.

Yes, and now, after writing a novel, I shall end this comment. :!:

On the whole, yes, I’d like to see a remake. :smile:

Final Fantasy 7 is still according to Wikipedia one the highest selling games of all time! I don’t know why Square Enix or Sony can ignore these figures, especially when Microsoft and Nintendo lead the console race. Even though the PS3 is more powerful, its being left in the dust.

I would like to see a remake not only for a great game but for a game that defined a generation! It was unlike any other, way ahead of it’s time.
Modern graphics would make this game brilliant and it would keep the fans happy.
So Square Enix listen to your fans please!

Okay, so the whole fight between “FFVII is ” and “it is the best game ever”, is highly annoying.

It is all a matter of preference and opinion, each game has a different story, and different things appeal to different personalities. So get over yourselves, grow up, and get a life.

Final Fantasy VII was an amazing game with an amazing cast, Kefka was one of the most badass villains of all time, Vivi is the coolest character on the planet, Locke is almost as awesome as Han Solo, and Balthier is one of the greatest things ever created.

No one is ever going to agree with everything someone says.
GET OVER IT.

The old games are good, but some of them are just okay, just because they are older does not necessarily make them better. So get your head out of your asses and realize that not JUST the classics are great games, because some of them are just not that good.

Square-Enix is slowly but surely remaking all of their “classic” titles, so of course they will remake their old psone versions, it is just a question of when, and if they will screw it up or not.

And stop saying FFVII is overrated, its a pointless argument. TONS of people GENUINELY really enjoy the game, so what? If you don’t like it, then DON’T ING TROLL THE INTERNET LOOKING TO WHINE ABOUT IT.

Jesus kids, go do something productive for once.

I think they need to remake the Original Four Disk Version of Final Fantasy 7. Keep The story line, Characters, Side quest, Same Materia and more, Same Weapons and More, and everything else. I’d buy three of the games and keep one sealed play one and buy two systems that it was made for and sell one of the systems and keep the other one. I mean come on. Whoever remade it like this would make millions. The game would sell millions and the system it is made for would sell millions making the video gameing inc, Millions. This is what they need to do. I would die just to have it. I’d do anything to have it remade like this and even do anything just to help remake it. I’d even invest all my money just to have it done. (If anyone has the original four disk version and are willing to sell it or get rid of it or let someone borrow it, Please contect me. If you have the three disk black version I will be willing to accept it as well, but prefer the four disk version, Please and thanks.)

For those of you who say “No Don’t Remake it.” You all have no taste in real games. FF7 was a classic. Anyone that was into RPG’s loved it. It was the first game I ever owned. I didn’t know anything about games. I loved it. I’ve played it and replayed it over and ever again and have never gotten over it or think that it isn’t worth playing. It is the best game I’ve ever played. Yea the graphics were ok, imagine it on the ps3 or the next gen system after it. Come on…I agree that it should be remade. Not because of the graphics but because it is hard to come by and it is fun and exzillerating. (Prob spelled that wrong). Idk. They just should remake it. I’d by all that I could.

I really hope that they do remake it because I never got the chance to pick it up when it first came out. Reason being that I got my first PS2 this year (2009)… yeah, sad, isn’t it? But still…

I’ve also heard rumors that they recently DID announce that it was to be remade, and that they would make the official announcement at E3.

They also said that they were considering making it for the DS. YIPPEE!!!

Okay, so the whole fight between “FFVII is ” and “it is the best game ever”, is highly annoying.

It is all a matter of preference and opinion, each game has a different story, and different things appeal to different personalities. So get over yourselves, grow up, and get a life.

Final Fantasy VII was an amazing game with an amazing cast, Kefka was one of the most badass villains of all time, Vivi is the cool est character on the planet, Locke is almost as awesome as Han Solo, and Balthier is one of the greatest things ever created.

No one is ever going to agree with everything someone says.
GET OVER IT.

The old games are good, but some of them are just okay, just because they are older does not necessarily make them better. So get your head out of your asses and realize that not JUST the classics are great games, because some of them are just not that good.

Square-Enix is slowly but surely remaking all of their “classic” titles, so of course they will remake their old psone versions, it is just a question of when, and if they will screw it up or not.

And stop saying FFVII is overrated, its a pointless argument. TONS of people GENUINELY really enjoy the game, so what? If you don’t like it, then DON’T ING TROLL THE INTERNET LOOKING TO WHINE ABOUT IT.

Jesus kids, go do something productive for once.

wow… i completely agree. some people like certain games, others don’t. stick with games that you prefer and leave everyone else to their own preferences.

The E3 FFVII announcement was that it’s been re-released for the PS3 and the PSP on the PSN. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Well its OK if they make a remake because it’ll please US XD ahha. If you don’t like the remake, you can always play the classic one, just like what they’ve done w/ FFIV or FFVI, they remade these but you can always play the classics (if u still own them XD aha I have them on the old super nintendo =]). Anyway, Square please remake FFVII!!! I love you Square ESP your FF Series, I WOULD BE SOO HAPPY I would DEFinately be inline on the waiting list to buy a remake of FFVII T-T. Aeris I love you! Cloud and many more you’re all my favorite characters! XD

The point of a remake would be to update it for the current younger generations who didn’t get the chance to play it. They need to do this to get these people interested. While they could download it on the PSN to play the classic version, The younger generation just isn’t interested in the lower quality graphics and older styling. I still play the original and I love it still, but I think that a remake is a good idea to bring the classics back so they can get some more love.

Not to be rash, but the people at square Enix would be IDIOTS if they didn’t remake this game. It’s dumb to say that the only people who are fans would buy it. But fact of the matter is the only people that play FF games nowadays ARE fans. 7 was amilestone and the best one in the series. Square enix are as much of bastards as Nintemdo was for teasing us with an ocarina of time remake. These people would make SO much profit off a FFVII remake, it’s insane that they haven’t said ” ok all these projects let’s give our fans what they want”. Nuff said. I’m reposting this to Facebook for more help.

They just need to enhance the graphics. Keep all dialogue the same and just have cut scenes since they do talk for quite a while in each scene. I would definitely be one of those people standing in line at 12:00 a.m. to get the first re-make of final fantasy 7.

Tifa ta BEST!!!

On October 21, 2011 at 4:14 am

come on guys,donn’t u think FF7 remake will be the best?
I mean the last game for FF7 is the Dirge of Cerberus,which the main character is Vincent.It’s not fair!!! This mean Vincent is the hero in here,not Cloud. So please SQUARE ENIX, I want guys to make a remake or another story about Cloud being the real hero. And please comfirm who he love the most whether Aerith or Tifa. I felt that sometimes he like Aerith better than Tifa,but a t same time I felt that Cloud really care for Tifa(meaning he love her) Onegai,SQUARE EINIX!!!!

Way too many posts here to read.

Final Fantasy was the greatest game made back when it was released which is why for most of us that revere it to this day as one of the vary best games of all time feel that way, most of you younger people that got there hands on it and played it 5 or 10 years after its release seem to not understand it or refuse to subconsciously give it any merit do to technology advancement or other games that have mimicked ff7 but made improvements which drive you to look at those more so then FF.

Also the early Final Fantasy games where vary complex and hard to understand story wise, look at Final Fantasy 8 with Squall.

Spoiler Alert!

3/4 of that game is played threw the final moments of squalls death, did you know?

Anyways I think personally a remake of FF7 would be cool but I don’t believe it will capture the harts of the younger generation that missed out on it, that game was one of those you had to be there games.
