“The biggest reason why we haven’t done a remake until now is because it’s a massive undertaking to reconstruct Final Fantasy 7 from the ground up with the current technology. Producing a proper HD remake of Final Fantasy 7 that maintains the same feeling of density of the original would result in a volume of content that couldn’t possibly fit into one installment.”
this thread is for all things FF7: past, present, future. love the game? hate it? have opinions on its experiences and legacy? post here!
I’m personally going through the original (PS4 HD port) right now for the first time and I’m having quite the trip. it’s such a product of it’s time: a flashy JRPG inside a late 90’s anime, with numbers and HP stats bleeding out from every exploding, pixelated pre-rendered nook and cranny.
The graphics are charming, the music is sincerely wonderful and the story is a convoluted mess that fits pretty hilariously in the modern day “Young Adult” fiction of your Hunger Games and Maze Runners and things. it’s quite a thing.
