Have you played both original and royal to compare them? Almost everything is improved in royal, graphics, combat, new mechanics, slightly rewritten story, new characters and areas, more activities, new palace and semester that expands the story and so much more. Its either a remake or a reboot. If xenoblade is a remake then so is persona 5 royal, characters in royal are also fleshed out just like xenoblade 

It’s an expansion bundle edition and yes I have both versions.  Even worse, the only way to get the expansion is to buy the whole game again.  The little tweaks to everything else isn’t uncommon with expansions.  

I would say that what Atlus do isn't done by anyone else.

Should I say Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition ?

Yes. I mean, I don't even imagine playing the OG because of the improvements done and the whole overhaul and having a new epilogue kinda helps too.

FFVIIR is so many levels better than the original that it isn't even a fair comparison.

Considering the scores OP is in disagreement with the market.

Whoaaa there, I love FFVII:R but the original is still easily on top for me. The story is complete and has a better pacing. There's tons of post game content and quirky mini-games to waste time on. Also, I'm still a sucker for completely turn-based RPGs.



Signature goes here!

Well it is a matter of taste. I didn't like the original, i had to crawl past the content of midgar, while I enjoyed the whole of FFVIIR. But sure I can imagine I'm minority on it. But that is the problem of not playing FFVII original until this gen and being a graphic whore =p

This one is so simple, Xenoblade with no competition
It's the start of my favourite RPG series
It has a beautifully carved adventure, exploration, Open world
It introduced a great battle system
So challenging with great battles and unique monsters
I can go on all day but it's simply the best to me

FF7R easily. Every individual aspect of it its top notch for me, specially the Gameplay which I hope they replicate for future FF entries.

Trials of Mana is a game I enjoyed but its nowhere near comparable. To note, visually looks like a last gen game and the voice acting is awful. Gameplay is fun.

My experience with the original XC prevents me from wanting to play the DE which I understand its the same game for the most part. Not a game I'd put on a pedestal like many in here do.



I've only played FFVIIR out of those options and found it to be an average game at best. I plan on picking up the other two at some point though and based on what I've seen of the other two, Xenoblade without a doubt will be the better game of the three.

You didn’t play the original until this gen?  That actually explains a lot...

On the PS1 I had played only FF IX. Then sure  played FF X, X-2 on PS2 and loved, hated XII the first time (but liked a lot the remaster). Played XIII and XIII-2 on PS3 and liked. FFXV on PS4 I moderatelly liked, FFVIIR I liked a lot.

Played the remaster of VIII on PS4 and was lukewarm, but didn't like the remaster of VII.
