Active Topical Banter - Episode 18: FFWhy
So, the Final Fantasy VII remake is finally happening. We have thoughts and feelings about this.
Talking points from the episode:
-Tens of millions of dollars and years of effort to make no one happy may as well be the official SE motto at this point.
-New and ruined vs old and busted
-Who is this game for?
-Sales versus acclaim
-Sure it’s profitable but now you’ve lost the chain that forces people to buy spinoffs
-New people in old shoes - ie nomura is a hack with responsibility far beyond his skillset compared to decades past
-Huzzah for a fresh translation
-Boo for a dozen (bad-ish) spinoffs worth of lore to re-incorporate.
-Modernization? how does this game hold up under new aesthetics and gameplay trends?
