It looks like it is coming along nicely!
Last week, Sony had its second State of Play event. It’s still essentially a Nintendo Direct
rip-off inspired presentation, but they seem to be finding their feet with the format reasonably well.
I still haven’t had a chance to go into everything they showed in full depth, but the new teaser for the Final Fantasy VII Remake looks amazing!
I don’t quite get a lot of the negatives I hear around this remake.
Is Final Fantasy VII a beloved game? Yes. For many players around my age, this was their first Final Fantasy game. That is nostalgia gold right there.
Was it a perfect game? Nope. Not by a long shot. A great game sure, and one I still love playing today, but not perfect by any means. So why just bring out the identical game again?
So Square is remaking it. Not HD Remastering, a full-blown remake. Gameplay that was set because of old limitations can be overhauled, not just the graphics. Look how well Resident Evil 2 remake has been received – this can be done very, very right.
Personally, I am looking forward to Final Fantasy VII Remake. It may crash and burn horribly, but I want to see what happens before making any judgements!
I am hoping the news coming in June at the ‘Not E3’ Conference will finally include a release date.
What about you? Is this something you are looking forward to? What is your favourite Final Fantasy so far? Let me know on Twitter @JohnHQLD or drop me a line on Facebook!
