Remake Is Not Remastered
So all that I have been hearing about since we got the first look trailer at the Final Fantasy VII remake is how they are changing things. When we were originally told about the remake they said some of the gameplay elements would be changed. Now to me this makes sense. There is this avid group of players who are all over talking about how the game is not going to play turn based. Do you know why turn based is not being used? Well it is an old mechanic used and in a much more high paced gaming world this type of style doesn't apply to the modern fan.
So if people can accept that they take it as they are ruining a game. All they ever had to do was just update the graphics. Now if you were not sure that is the difference between a remake and a remaster. For example X and X-2 recently went through the remaster stage and we have heard XII is also currently heading in this direction. A remake though changes gameplay elements. Like say the battle system. Maybe a scene will be filmed differently and end with the same result. These are the things you have to get through your head when you hear the word remake.
Do I think they will change major plot points? No I don't think so. I think they will make things mess better with the other Final Fantasy VII games, but other than that I don't think so. I feel like they will go a lot more in depth because the voice acting option gives them this ability to make you feel more for the characters you will be playing.
This game won't be the same as the original. This was never the intention. What it will do is give the modern fan the chance to be part of the story we all fell in love with back in 1997. If you don't like the new ones gameplay you can always still play the original. Don't feel cheated because you are not getting exactly what you want, because rally that is the sense of entitlement you have been ragging the current gaming generation on.
