Forums - Gaming Discussion - The "Lack" of value on Final Fantasy VII Remake

 

Is FFVIIR part 1 enough of a game for full price?

Yes 23 60.53%
 
No 15 39.47%
 
No game is worth 60 USD 0 0%
 
Total:38

Much like many others, I enjoyed every bit of it so that's enough value for me.
I dont make any correlation between playtime and price. I can think of AAA games that can be finished in 10-15 hrs and are still worth the price tag.
If we are to expect the same quality and similar amount of content for part 2, I'll gladly pay $60 for it.

FF7R makes it feel like the story is a distraction from the sidequests. 

First time i Saw Someone saying the story is a distraction from the sidequests. From all the hotakes about this game this has to BE the weirdest, most irracional and wrong. Are you sure you played the same game the other millions of players played?

irracional?

Is that some word for something race related? What does race have to do with anything? :/



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

I’m not a fan of the game being split up. I actually haven’t bought it and probably won’t until all the parts are released. I’m also not a fan of the combat system. I enjoyed the original turn based style much more.

I actually feel dumb for being one of the fans that petitioned for a remake. I should have known square would ruin my childhood...

I will never understand this sentiment. If a remake or reboot of a movie or game ruins your childhood. Maybe your childhood wasn't very good, to begin with? You always have the original. Star Trek is one of my fave franchises and they have destroyed it with the JJ films and recent TV series. I just pretend they don't exist and still enjoy the older films and TV shows.

I wasn't a fan when StarCraft 2 got split into 3 parts, definitely not a fan of other games doing it either.
It feels like a cash grab in order for a company to make the absolute largest return on their investment, it's good for the company, but I don't feel it's beneficial for the consumer.

What will probably suck is that... The future releases for the game will probably not release on the Playstation 4, so PS4 gamers might not be able to get the entire FF7 remake experience.

I do consider they all parallel world stories liking or not (if they are not sequels they are what if scenarios to me). Like Saint Seiya CGI movie that retold in summary the sanctuary war. I really liked it because I considered isolated from the original story and laughed at some differences and liked some similarities and deviations, if I was going to be upset by all changes I would be really upset. Now the Netflix remake is a lot worse case. They even changed the entry song and several voice actors, besides all the story changes that were very bad.

Well many games have crossed gens without having a release on the previous one for the new entry, like Tomb Raider newer trilogy or Legacy of Kain (I do remember to this day finishing Soul Reaver 1 and at the end no cutscene just a continue on Playstation 2... at the time I didn't even know there would be a PS2).

The difference here it's a single game split up into multiple parts, so I would personally believe there should be a stronger emphasis on releasing all those parts on a single platform.

Split compared to FFVIIR sure, still LOTR for example is a single book and Godfather as well both were turned in 3 movies (and in godfather case took a long time). It is just a matter of perspective, a trilogy is still one story split in 3. It is just that you are hang on the original being single piece. Still the remake is enough content and self-contained to be satisfying by itself.

It’s obviously a form of hyperbole, used to emphasize a point.  It did not literally ruin my childhood.  Basically, I’m not happy with the way square went about remaking this game.  



From what I’ve seen it is definitely a full sized game. A playthrough with all main and side quests and a decent amount of grinding can easily go over 40 hours.
