Dear Brothers of Shenmue, The Last Guardian and FFVII Remake GAF.

In our finest hour, under a united banner we willed a miracle in to existence.

Let it be forever remembered that this banner was created BEFORE the Sony Conference by fellow brothers.

Let us not forget this day, for this call to arms may be needed once again.



BELIEVE!

Part of me feels like they're going to add in a way to revive Aerith and just kinda ruin that whole idea of finality about her. I'd love to be wrong, though.
I think multiple endings would be interesting... what if you could save her from being killed, and change the story?

much as i want it to be true there is just no way they're going to keep the ATB system. i'm assuming this remake will cost an insane amount of money and JRPG's of FF7's type just don't sell anymore. makes me sad but this is the reality of the situation.... hopefully i'm wrong!

Genesis is legit the worst character in the Final Fantasy franchise
He really is. I still don't understand what thought process went through the writers' minds when creating him.

"Let's make a red version of Sephiroth, in a game that already has Sephiroth...."

I can't agree with number 1. They should remain as secret characters.

About voice acting, I know it's a major feature, but I think it's going to ruin some special moments of the original game. I mean, a lot of the magic was there because we pictured that scenes and the dialogues in our minds back in the day. They better have a stellar performance here.
Why would number 1 not happen? They've been made into canon characters.

In this day and age it'll be extremely jarring for Vincent and Yuffie to be around and to only say generic stuff and not be part of any CGI material just because they're still relegated to being optional party members.

100% sure they'll be mandatory now.

I can't wait for this.

My main question though is why now?


So many opportunities in the past I feel. I just wonder what stars aligned for it to happen now

why do people think that this won't be turn based but an action RPG?

It would make a ton more sense to re-do pre rendered 1080p backgrounds that are in motion and do it like REmake on gamecube.

It would be cheaper and take a lot less time. And be more faithful.

I'd love to know the backstory to this. They surely can't have planned it before last PSX, because if so why announce the stupid-ass PC port to such rapturous reception? Logically therefore they started this after that debacle. So did SE just not understand the potential market for a remake until they saw the size of the backlash?

Well, I shall dream well tonight! It's like Sony took all of the hopes and dreams of gamers for the last 10 years and said "Boom, Reality. I know theyre not all exclusive, but holy crap, to announce those games at your press conference and have timed exclusivity is huge.

Also, big shout out to us gamers for being vocal about what we want. These 3 games wouldn't exist without us telling them we want them, and props to Sony for listening.

Pretty much everyone does a great job, Steve Burton, Rachel Leigh Cook, Alyson Stoner, George Newbern....all have voiced the characters for years. They know what to do.

The story and execution of it is the main thing I'll be concerned with.

However they decide to do the combat, I'll be fine with it as long as it's fun.

This was the biggest shock of them all, what the hell happened between PSX last year to now? Was it an elaborate red herring to show to port? Was it decided from the negative reaction? I would love to find out someday

Man I don't even know wtf this game and shemmu 3 is. But the reaction was awesome. GAF seems happy :p
Final Fantasy VII is a game that defined a generation. It was huge and heavily narratively driven, and though there had been many games like that before, FF7 was one of, if not, the first to be so cinematic in its presentation and to catch mainstream notice. Not everybody loves it, but nobody worth their salt contests that it changed gaming forever.
