Nope, out first chance to play it properly was the PS1 release in 2002

Thats bad. At the same time, didnt you guys have imports, or game rental places?

I was able to beat it twice around 1995 living in Brazil and believe me, it was really hard to find stuff at that time.

Region locking was a thing back then. We were in the PAL region so anything from Japan/the Americas would be unplayable to us. If there were any import stores they were probably just imported from elsewhere in Europe which obviously wouldn't help. Rental places would only rent stuff that was also sold in the country.

I assume Brazil was the same region as the US? So it would've been easier to import stuff there.

Plus there wouldn't have really been any demand. I'm pretty sure FF7 was the first FF game to release in Europe, so the franchise was literally unknown prior to that. Even if it were easy, people aren't going to import a game they've never heard of.



Around the Network

Square Enix remade III and IV and they sold almost nothing. They only did VII because developers had the incentive of doing something different, since remaking tit-for-tat is something that elicits almost zero interest from them, and even then it's barely outselling FFXV if that.

I'd say there's a low chance of a faithful, high-budget remake of any of these games ever coming out unless it's something like a gacha remaster, as it is the case for Ever Crisis and likely the I-VI Pixel compilation.

6 without a doubt but it's got to stay more true to the original. Button mashing gameplay should not be the future of the series.

Good thing FFVII Remake isn’t part of that future your describe.

Of course not, that game is out already so it's not the future anymore, it's the present... sorry part 1 of that game.



Hmm, pie.

It’s not a button masher is what I meant, but I guess you tried to dodge that.

I know, still a button masher compared to FF7, which it was meant to be based on, which wasn't.

It’s not. You press buttons, sure, it’s a video game, but you don’t mash them. Because if you do, you won’t make it far into the game.



Personally I think the rest of VII deserves a remake, really hope they get on that.

But if we're being serious, what I would like to see most is a IX remake since that's my second favorite after VII.
The NES era games would defintely benefit most though since they haven't aged very well imo, but since I'm not a big fan of those they wouldn't be my first pick.

There's more strategy involved in the remake combat than the original, and you can button mash in the original as well so your argument isn't exactly strong lol :P 



4, 6, and 9 are my favorites and could all be solid remakes. I enjoyed 7 remake, and wouldn't mind one of these games get similar treatments. I would rather them just remake them like the recent Legend of Mana or similar graphics to Octopath Traveler.



Yeah, I also miss turn based but we have to move passed the idea of that turn based equals tactical and action equals button mashing. You cannot button mash your way through FFVIIR lol

For me, things I miss about turn based.
1. Full input on all characters
2. clear overview of all combat actions
3. Cinematic angles and presentation of your characters, enemies and attacks.
4. Not concerning yourself with reflexes allows you to focus on tactics more (if battle calls for it)
