Now that the dust has (kind of not really) settled after the release of the FFVII remake teaser trailer - I thought I'd weigh in some opinions of my own after seeing a lot of both good and bad points floating around the internet. Feel free to not read and just admire the beauty of Aerith, Cloud and my guy Barret
As a huge FF fan, I was always going to have a lot of love for VII remake, it was the first FF that introduced me to the world of Squaresoft and holds a soft spot in my heart. But it also holds a huge spot in the heart of SE too, you only have to look at the releases prior to the original game to know that 7 had such a massive impact on them as a team - which is why I have no doubt in my mind the remake is going to be phenomenal. Yes, it's going to be different not just graphically, but mechanically too - that's the sheer beauty of game development and remaking a beloved game. -
It IS a remake, not a remaster - ofcourse there will be major changes, we should celebrate that. If you wanted no changes to the game, then the original is so easily accessible on consoles/computer now that you can just play that again. -
We first heard about the remake in 2015, that's 4 years - in reality that isn't much time at all, consider that the team working on VII also worked on some of SE's most anticipated projects (ahem, I think we all know what that is by now) so to me, complaining how "iT's tAkIng sO lOnG" is not warranted. That's just my opinion though. -
I'm so pleased with how beautiful the characters look - Aerith especially (I'll be honest, I'm not an Aerith fan but she is a fucking vision) despite certain criticisms *eyeroll* about how she looks, I think she's perfect - reminiscent of Crisis Core and has the air of innocence surrounded her that many loved. I could go on and on but I'm boring myself now.
Again this is all just my opinion, feel free to give your own - I'm interested in what people think about it after seeing the trailer. I'm excited for June, I need to see my gal Tifa 🖤🖤🖤
