Both the original and the remakes will be JRPGs. 

And no, it's not "pretty universal".  No matter how badly you want it to be otherwise.  

If you want the original, play the original. But Final Fantasy has always been about trying new things and changing core aspects of the game.  It was hopelessly naive to think that VIIR would be any different.  If you are unable to move past 1997, that's your problem, not Square's. 

The term "JRPG" is meaningless.  That is not the type of game.  If you think otherwise, I DARE you to explain what TYPE of game a JRPG is.  It cannot be done, because it depends on the genre (type of game).  And yes, it's pretty universal, no matter how badly you want it to be otherwise.

Your last statement is as asinine as asinine gets.

"I know you are but what am I" is a tacit admission you can't overcome a point.

You can pretend its universal if it makes you feel better, but you and I both know that whenever this remake comes out, it's going to sell many millions of copies.

And we both know - though you are about to deny it - that you will be among the throng getting it day one.



Around the Network

Personally, I'd like to hang whoever coined the "JRPG" abreviation. When I was kid in the early 90's, "JRPG"s wasn't a genre - it was just "RPG", regardless of the country that developed it. I have no respect for anyone that calls an RPG a "JRPG", if it was made in Japan that is.

Just stop being a hipster tool and call it an RPG. You don't call The Witcher 3 a "PRPG" (Poland) do you? Didn't think so..

Um...grow up, please?

Also, Square has been trying to abandon and replace their fanbase for a long time now.  You know damn well that the people who will buy the remake are not the people who actually LIKED the type of game that the original was.

And, again with your asinine arrogance, people said the same crap to me about FF15, and no, I did not buy it.
