I'd pay for a new version. I have the original PC release. I hope they fix the motorbike part going faster depending on how fast your computer is. I think my psp version does the same thing.

I don't see it saying GFWL live achievements. It could be steam or some other achievement system.

Here here!

...Though, that may be because it's the only Final Fantasy I sat down and played for an extended amount of time. In FF7, I didn't even make it past the first disc.

At least until I sat down and 100%'d Final Fantasy XIII. =D

I've only lived here for about 10 months. Good try, though.

Either way, I'd probably go back to X-2 before going back to VII.

7 is indeed trash. Worst one in the entire series. The only ones who think 7 is "OMFG BEST GAME EVAAR!!1" are the ones who started playing FF at 7.
Nothing in that series will ever be as great as 6.

And I'm sure that you're going to give me shit about X-2. Granted, it had the shittiest plot, but, to me, it had the best battle system of all the other Final Fantasy games. You can overlook a shitty story so long as the game is entertaining and fun to play.

I'd probably dislike FFVII if it weren't for the fact it didn't suffer from lockdown on the final disc like FFVIII and FFIX. You were punished for being near the end of the game in those. In FFVII? You have access to everything. If you didn't do anything before, you still have the ability to go back and do it all along side new nifty endgame stuff.

FFVI is still the best
FFX-2 was a lot better than FFVIII

Well Square has re-made so many already, being the ones on DS and X coming later this year, I expect to see 6,7,8,9 going HD. The other ones I could care less and FF1 is on WP7, so maybe later to Market Place or Surface

One of my mates has completed X-2 something like 5 times. I think he's insane personally. The story is pretty important to me. Plus about 3 weeks after I got it I bought an Xbox and decided Halo was the best game ever :P (yeah I started playing it pretty late) That opinion has now changed. Though I did complete it eventually. Sort of just tuned out of the plot. Personally I liked 8. Because that story made complete sense.

Ohhh...me likey your taste. Those are probably my favorite 4 FF titles. IV is probably still my all-time favorite...I think because I'm a huge Star Wars fanboy and the whole Cecil/Golbez dynamic reminded me of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Also Kain was a badass.

However, unlike you I am not a FF VII hater so I'll probably check out any HD/current gen remakes. Probably my 5th favorite in the series. I hated VIII (can't really explain why, I just do). I liked X (played it while on medication right after having major surgery so that may be why) but I feel like it was the beginning of the downwards slide of the entire series. Never played the MMOs.

Most gaming sites are talking about, even if "this" one is not true, it should be a way to end this current gen. I personally love FF7, not the best of the FF's but highly enjoyable, all the final fantasy's were pretty awesome up until X-2, then it went down down hill.

It would be very cool to see an updated version of VII (my favorite). Would I upgrade my PC to play it? No.

I can't really talk though. The first FF I played was VIII while the first one I enjoyed enough to sit down and beat was X before eventually enjoying IX enough to consider it one of my all time favorite RPGs.

IX is probably my favorite in the series. I think it has a simplicity and a charm that the others don't have. It's almost like a fairy tale. The way they deliver the plot is brilliant and unique, too. That, and I like how modest and sincere the characters (esp Steiner).

I played the first 8 Final Fantasy games, X and XIII.
VIII is my favourite, but honestly I can't remember the old NES and SNES games that well as I've played them years ago.
VII was all right, but I never understood the hype about it.

I might however, look into it if it's really getting made. The only FF games I still have in my collection are VIII, X and XIII, and the latter is only in my possession because you can't get a decent price for it at the store.
Wouldn't mind playing VII again, but I'll always like VIII more.

I keep hearing people say that FF6 was really good so I guess I should play it. I liked number 7, did not like 8, 9 was my favourite and 10 was a great game. The less said about 13/13-2 the better lol

I'd like to see them all released again tbh though I could live without 10-2, truly a poor addition to the series.

Go for it. I'm not the only one here who thinks FFVII was trash.

Yeah...I never understood what was so great about 7. Most of the game has almost nothing to do with Sephiroth or Jenova. Its just the party going to random places just trying to figure stuff out when all of a sudden things just pop up. The last disc was pretty intense and fun, but I could not stand playing through the rest of the game.

The only thing I really loved about FF7 was the side story "Dirge of Cerberus" with Vincent. That game was awesome, and the whole story with Vincent and Lucrecia was..sad.

Final Fantasy 6+9 are my favorites. I would rather them, and this will sound extreme, just make a collection with Final Fantasy 1-10 collection. THAT..would be worth a buy.

Kuja in FF9 was a beast. His battle theme was also catchy as fuck, even if his costume was..dirty (;

Final Fantasy 7 was the first in it's genre to hit the first major console generation of the generation of young adults today. It is no suprise that it always seems the most popular - a first introduction to a franchise you have enjoyed for many years plus the ability of hindsight to remove all the bad aspects and keep only the good ensures it's popularity.

This is exciting news though. It suggests that market research has shown profit to be made in re-releasing the game. If this translates to the Xbox and (I guess) if the negotiations between parties work out, it could come to the Xbox too one day (soon).
