This was my first introduction in to the FF series and it happens to be the one which left the biggest impact. I find that even though it certainly hasn't aged well in the eye-candy department, I still find time to play it from time to time and it still provides a certain level of enjoyment which is lacking even in modern rpg/jrpg titles.
Going on a date with Barret at The Golden Saucer is easily one of the most memorable gaming experiences for me.
...but this is a far cry from what I was hoping for and would like to see an actual remake. FFVII and Resident Evil 2 are really the only two console titles which would command my wallet to open up and empty the contents regardless of price if they were ever properly remade.
