Let me try to put some of my perspective here. Take it or not.

This will definitely drag for years, we aren't talking about quick stuff here.
Each game will be priced $50 or $60, each game will be big, have a start and ending.
The original game was already huge, but with more in depth on everything, each part can go 50h+.
It won't feel like other episodic games, they are pushing a sequel mode, the problem is that we already know the story, all of it, except the new additions, so it'll feel as separated games and also as a broken piece for fans.

So SE is not ripping people off, each game will be a full game, they will probably have more content than each FF13 game, so your money will pay off, but you'll know there is more and feel like it's missing there.
I feel like SE will do a good job in the end, we'll have a massive collection worth around 200h of gameplay, but having to wait for them to keep coming, and that will be yearly, at best, we are talking about a heavy content based split, it'll take time to make.

We just will never have such a easy time as we had at the original playstation generation, where if it wouldn't fit they just slapped another disc, or two or three to make it happen and relase all together.
Our reality is very diferent now, SE needs the money to keep pulling it, it's too much time and work to them to do it juat for the sake of the love for the original.

In the end it should be an amazing experience, but SE has already proved they can and will deliver a massive content game at once, with FFXV, but they had to also do the episode duscae to get some money back, like we saw with Ground Zeroes.

The problem is that to make a game following a strict series of events is different from making a huge new one where they are free to go adding content to their visions where they like and pacing it on the go.

But I just can't feel confortable knowing how it once was, it's their compromisse to make the remake happen, but it feels like in the fan perspective, they should hold it and release all at once. Not the bussines sense, though, they will want the first game out in 2017 to exploit the 20th anniversary, and keep taking smaller risks and adding content with more games after.
