Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS3): Reasons why it should not happen

While most of you are still praying for Square-Enix to confirm a PS3 remake of legendary PS1 title Final Fantasy VII, we have an interesting article for you to check out, which lists three reasons why it SHOULDNT happen.

As reported from TheSilentChief, interest in a FF7 remake has gathered speed ever since Square-Enix released the game as a PS1 classic on the Playstation network store.

While most would jump at any talk on a remake for the PS3, TheSilentChief has other ideas. They explain that the game would take far too long to develop, while they also fear that a new development team for the game would make too many changes to the core elements of the game, including that battle system within FF7 that we all loved dearly.

Finally, the last reason and probably the most significant of all, is that they think the game should not be touched at all, because it is simply a ‘masterpiece’. I have to say that I agree with them on that front. While towns and characters in HD would be amazing, I fear that too many changes will just spoil the game and risk ruining the legacy.

Do you agree with this or not? Let us know your opinions on a remake.

  1. What about older remaked FF's? They are not ruined by better graphics! If you don't want a remake then don't and don't buy it when it comes -_- I would buy a PS3 for this game…

  2. I am open to a FF7 remake. Even if they do put a lot of changes, I am ready to accept it as a new game unrelated to the old FF7, and therefore my memory of FF7 won't be tainted.

  3. There's no way ff 7 could get a tainted reputation even if they did make a messed up new version. The old would still be looked at as a masterpiece. I wish they would make an updated version and put ff13 to shame

  4. I don't see why remaking FF7 would hurt anyone. Sure it was a masterpiece, but is playing it with better graphics going to ruin your memory of it? Is playing it, even if they change the battle system, going to affect your memories? Well it shouldn't. Personally, I think it would be brilliant if they remade it. I have many friends who have seen the film and/or played Crisis Core, but never the original game, and the simple reason that they haven't is because it is too old and the graphics look weird. I don't really blame them. I would leap at the opporunity to play it with better graphics myself, but why I really want a remake is so I can discuss it with my friends, because I loved the story, and they won't change that.
