It looks like one of my favorite games is about to get its long awaited remake. Now that it’s really happening, I’m not sure how to feel about it. FFVII was cutting edge for its time, and one of the first truly story driving RPGs with characters we cared so deeply about that their tragedies and triumphs struck a deep chord with gamers the world over. Cloud, Aerith, Sephiroth — these are the heroes and villains that transformed the Final Fantasy series from a mere video game franchise to a legend. I really want to see these characters given form with the cutting edge graphics of our day. But, truth be told, having a movie or a movie series (like Final Fantasy: Advent Children) might be a better way to go.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
