I'm a lot stricter with my son and myself =p

But that is real, only very bad games get a 50-60 meta, the average game is on the 75 neighborhood.

Nah. ToMR is great. Tho I find this thread unnecessary as the popularity of the two has a massive gap between them and it should be obvious.

On your opinion. Doesn't really seem to be a consensus.

You hit the nail on the head for me and even provided an example that I 100% agree with. I adore VII and VIII for their blend of modernity and fantasy. There's just not that many J-RPGs with the kind of aesthetics the FF games have. I really wanna get into more classic J-RPGs but after playing FF VI-VII-VIII there's just not that many that connect me with me in the same way.

I tried to get into the Breath of Fire games some time ago and I just couldn't get into them for that reason. That's why the Mana games don't interest me at all.

I played several JRPG to basically discover that i don't like JRPGs in general, but love FF.

Most JRPG fans I have seen play it have enjoyed it.

The collective of anedota isn't data. And if the game was great it would hardly have such low score and not great sales. Sure it can please a niche, I really liked Death Stranding and Days Gone and think they are great. But considering market wise they aren't accepted as great.

And sincerelly when looking at the trailer for the remake it looks like a PS2 game so it really isn't up to modern standard at all, not even AA or even A level game.

It's an Unreal 4 game so wrong but whatever floats your boat. I also find it funny people let a number choose their opinion for them.

An engine doesn't make a game good or pretty. I didn't know the number until it was said and I replied that is average score on gaming. I watched the trailer and it was very clear the graphic is poor.

Because it isn't as good. FFVIIR for me looks and play 100x better than the original even if only covering a part of the story and it felt satisfying and enough for an entry already saying it will be continued.

Wait what?! 

Seriously FF7r isn’t the entire game AND they will be splitting it over several releases? This makes me even less interested in the game.

For the record I’ve played FF 1,3,4,5,6,7 but actually lost interest in the series because of 7.

For me personally, I downloaded and played the demo for Trials of Mana and wasn't into it much. Maybe I'll get it when it's on sale towards the end of the year.

FFVIIR is an entire game. But sure you can think it is bad if you want.

The two series aren't even in the same ballpark in terms of popularity. This is like comparing Guacamelee to Mario.

But more guacamoles are sold everyday than Mario games.

We've known that the FF7 remake would be split over multiple releases for almost as long as we've known that it even existed. If you didn't already know that then I'm not sure it's possible for you to be less interested in it
