Why? Because you say it isn't episodic we all have to agree? Some how your opinion trumps the opinions of others because reasons? I hate to break the news, but many of us don't do not agree with your opinion, and yes it is an opinion.
FFVII is the very definition of episodes. To get the full story I have to play multiple pieces. I've beaten FFVII at least a dozen time. The full story isn't Midgar. Having access to only Midgar means I get a small portion of the story. Think of Star Wars, to get the full Luke/Vader story I have to watch multiple movies. And what are the movies called again? Something like EPISODE IV, V and VI.
Curious enough, on the front of the Xenosaga games is the verbiage EPISODE.
It's not my fault you choose to disregard reasoning and evidence. Is it an opinion that ff13 doesn't have part 1 on the box? No.
Is it an opinion that FF7R is not 1:1 with the original in terms of scale and story? No.
You beat FF7 dozens of times suppose to mean something? No.
You and the OP choose to ignore those facts. This is not even debatable anymore because you've already made up your mind.
I am using reasoning, I'm simply not blindly in love with the remake.
Is Red XIII part of the FFVII Story? Yes.
Is his story told in FFVII Remake Episode 1? No.
Heck he ISN'T EVEN PLAYABLE.
Is Vincent's story told in Episode 1? No.
Is Yuffie's story told in episode 1? No.
How about Cid? No.
How about Cait Sith? No.
The Remake doesn't have the full story, it just doesn't. I could list all of the great story elements that will clearly be missing from the remake episode I, but I don't want to spoil anything for others.
One might wonder, how are major story elements (including massive plot twists) missing if episode I is the full story? Well you see, the game isn't the full story. Square took a giant story in FFVII and split it up into pieces, parts, sections, segments.... some might call it episodes.
And to be fair, you made up your mind the day it was announced. So it isn't like you are any less stubborn than lets say the OP.
