I think in addition to a questionable attitude, he has a point.
Harry Potter is legitimate in having 7 books, because it first appeared that way. 8 movies on the other hand was a problem for some due to the fear of it being stretched thin.
Same thing with The Hobbit - small book, perfectly fine. 3 movies however were reason for concern.
If FF13 came out in one, it would still very much feel like 3 different games, because of different themes, story, game world design and gameplay.
And I think it is a valid concern to have for FF7 to feel like one third of a game. If they make it into a very different game (and gameplay wise and graphically they already did), part 1 could feel like a whole thing. Bit it is a remake and I suspect the story not to change too dramatically.
You are right - remains to be seen if part 1 can stand on its own. But I am sceptical. And I think for good reason.
Yes reason for concern is fine, and I can appreciate and comprehend his worry. But he is already determining it will be bad and 1/3 of a product before it releasing.
I do think Hobbit was a little disappointing on the 9h movie. But HP I do think it need at least twice or maybe three times more movies to tell the whole story and I'm totally in favor of they making it a 7 season series with at least 10 episodes each so they can tell all and even expand some stuff.
Yes FF13 would feel like 3 different games if they just put it together as is, but if they were a single game they would probably tie all and smooth differences. Now on the opposite side, if they cut FF IX in 3 games they would possibly make 3 good games, and FFX and FFX-2 are to perfectly good games that could also be made into one.
To feel like FFVII could be 1/3 of a game is one thing, but you can't be sure until the game releases. Splitting a game in 3 doesn't make each be 1/3 of a game automatically. Uncharted 1 to 4 are different games but they could make it a single massive game without much problem if they wanted (but would need more money and make less profit so wouldn't make much sense).
I'll give the studio the benefit of the doubt, since the start they said this was a very ambitious remake not a remaster, so I'll wait and see. Be cautious but not negative.
And where does it say he wont get the complete story and more? Making it into more than 1 game don't change that.
The godfather is a single book with no much more than 300 pages, when you watched it as a trilogy did it piss you off that they decided to make 3 movies instead of a single one?
Until the game launches and he plays he can't really say it will be bad because it was made into more than a single entry.
In one single game, not in multi games that take $60 each game and several next years (if lucky) to come out
Did original FFVII for ps1 was in multi parts like this and the story came out from a book that had 300 pages too? If it did, then it could use this excuse because the story source of the original game was too long for just one game, but it didn't. Apple to Orange. Is the god father movie also a remake which has the story breaks into multi parts of the original movie?
Bad or not, this upcoming game doesn't have the full story of the original game, right?
What is the problem with it taking several 60 and years to play it? They aren't entitled to anything, the original game still exist and they can play it whenever they want. And they already made a remaster releasing it in PC with a much higher quality and that was brought to PS4 as well. Sure I would prefer that a remake was just graphic touch up and nothing more, but I won't say it will suck before playing it.
300 pages book as source isn't that big, but I bet that a 3 movies 3h each gave us a much better experience (and yes it took many many many years to be finished) than if it was a 2h single movie.
But that's not what this game is. And we've known this since 2015.
If people want a game that never existed and never will, that's fine. But they shouldn't bring it up in every single FF7R thread we have, year in and year out ever since 2015.
I have seen dozens of people still do it again and again in Youtube, Neogaf and Resetera. Clearly they despise the idea of breaking the original story into multi parts

The original game have plot holes that needs clearing up, like who the hell is Johnny? The game doesn't seem to really elaborate on who Johnny is. We need to stop this Johnny-gate!
There is a whole bunch of Avalanche members, it's not just Barret and co.. If you watch the trailer there is othestillr eco-terrorist there helping stop the plate from falling too.
Good thing the Remake is coming to clear up all the plot holes from the original game.
Those plot holes could be solved by some addition of the background stories, just some add-on side stories for example, easy peasy.
There is always people complaining about anything and sometimes spamming the same thing in several places. That happened here as well.
And if the game was truly finished and there was nothing to tell them they wouldn't have made sequels, movies and spin-offs to tell those loose threads.
