I give square as much shit as the next guy, but I have to respect them for not doing a ff7 remake. The only way to do it justice is to pretty put as much effort as a whole new big budget game(or make it a vita game and make everyone outside of japan rage and give sony a uncontrollable erection). Instead of getting a new game they would have to spend years remaking a old one. Is that what people really want?
Maybe I'm the crazy one that would rather play a new game rather then a sequel/game I played years ago. Never got the same people that complain about sequels all day will beg for remakes of old games.
