Was that the greatest troll in the history of the industry? (FFVII)

Yessssss, it was fucking excellent. Square can't make good games anymore, but they can still devastate people emotionally.

Note: I love FFVII (top 5 ever for me), but I don't really care if there's a remake.

Why do people actually want a remake of that game.

Let it stay in 1997 where it is innocent and beautiful.

It wouldn't have been if people didn't expect a remake every time FFVII is mentioned.

Im still sitting here waiting for that old cut scene to morph into a completely new remaster.

Theyre going back to that, right?

Not since Final Fantasy 14........ Online have I seen such a twist.

Well done Square Enix. If disappointment was money all your staff would be living in golden houses.

FFVII with trophies. I'd much rather have this than see modern SE butcher my favourite game.

The trolling was amazing, though.

Easily. Hands-down, will never be topped, greatest troll of all time. This will seriously taint what was going to be a great event.

Yes, I got so freaking pumped and then let down so quickly.
I was jumping up and down while my wife looked at me.

And then it hit me "wait...why do they keep showing the old game? Aren't they going to transition to the remade graph....no....no....my God. No. NOT A PORT. WHAT THE FUCK!?!? FUCK YOU!"

I was so excited when I saw the thread. Then I saw, port, and wanted to throw my computer at the wall.

Meh. I don't think I could handle seeing them ruin VII with a remake, especially if they decide to go the route of fugly AC appearances.
