Congrats to it, this spin-off has done well. I wonder how part 2 will do.


As a fan of the series, it's a shame though, as it seems ATB is gone and button mashers is what we have left. FF16 can't come quick enough to disappoint me.



Hmm, pie.

Good. Despite my many criticisms it is my favorite JRPG of all time. I'm very critical of games in general, but FF7 remake did set a new bar in many aspects. To be fair I never played the original (and probably missed out on many other good JRPGs), but I really see why so many people cared about this game's story so much. It's truly iconic in a way that other FF games never resonated with me at the same level. Given similar praise to FF6 (one of the few other FF games I never played), I hope after this is complete they consider remaking that in a similar manner.

It also makes me wish Nintendo actually gave the Pokemon IP to a competent dev who could remake Gen 1 or 2 in a truly remade way. As much as people like the Go remakes on Switch, I grew up with those games and they aren't even close to something that would get me to play them out of nostalgia. I want the 2D world turned into a 3D world as this game accomplished, more integration with the original anime series (as yellow did to a very small extent), and graphics that are actually utilizing modern tech. The Go games just didn't accomplish that in any way for me. I really wish the Pokemon fanbase had similar standards and voiced these desires the same way the FF7 fanbase has for years. Without the dedication of players this remake never would have happened so I have to give major thanks to the original fanbase.

Funnily enough I also thought of Pokemom when playing it. I think it was inbetween these fish monsters blowing bubbles at me as an attack and being turned into a toad by another monster.

Even if they cut the pokemon list down to 70 or something I'd love a cinematic spinoff with a reinvented battle system which really conveys the personality/weakbesses/strength of each pokemon you come across. One can dream.

Well deserved sales for FFVII, the production value was really beyond any entry before it. Hope they iron out the few flaws that kept it from being a masterpiece like the inflated level design.

Have you tried to beat the game by button mashing? Pretty sure it's not possible. Also I remember spamming attack 80% of the time in Midgar in the original.  

But I would also love if FF16 returned to an evolved turn base system where you manage the team at the same time and the camera was freed up for cinematic purposes.

We still don't know the global total somehow.



See Sony? Your turn.

I have a special kind of hate for this game. First of all I purchased this game without realizing it was just the Midgar saga. Completely blame myself and won’t make that mistake again. Second, despite being a phenomenal experience with a few minor criticisms, the last chapter was so bad It eclipsed any good memories I had from the experience. I have absolutely no more interest in the game. That Last chapter and ending was fucking stupid.

Spin-off? button mashers? What?



Where are those 'FFXV shipped more" posters at LMAO

FF7R is going to demolish FF records and it will do that on PS4 alone. The opening itself was on the level of Spiderman, GOW, UC4 which all went on to sell 15 million+ on PS4.

I'm guessing it will do 10 million+ on PS4 alone. LTD of 13-15 million.

Nomura's Kingdom Hearts crossover in the final chapter has been pretty divisive. I kind of loved and hated it, and it's now left me both interested and worried about what they might do next.

Impressive sales though. Hopefully that incentivises them to take less than half a decade before releasing the next part of this 3-10 part project.
