Id be so mad if they did a FF8 remake instead of a FF7. not because FF8 is a bad game (its very good and im sure the remake would be amazing tbh) But more just because it would have meant S.E had decided to do a remake and totaly gone against the fans! :P

and a FF8 remake would be good

A FF7 Remake would be AMAZING!

Bleh, more remakes. I'm indifferent to remakes...they're nice in that the people who may have missed them the first time around get to play them. But those who did play them...feel it's a waste of time and resources, when they could be working on another new project or something.

Many people dislike FF8 due to plot holes and poor story development. I however liked the game, and prefer the FF games that take place in future settings. I never played all the way through FF9 as it didnt interest me.

I would hope they would remake FF7 first, over FF8, but sadly I don't think either will happen. Those games are best left in the past. The stories have been told and it is time to move on with new ones.

i guess you're alone on that one m8... but don't give up :)

i think i would like to see both of them remade. FF8 at some point in the future anyway. it was my first FF game and i love it and found it to be pretty amazing. The draw system was boring but it felt like the more you did it the more powerful you became, instead of just learning a new spell. FF7's materia system is awesome to though of course.

I think it wouldnt be a suprise to say that if they are remaking any ff game, its 7. which is fine by me. i only played through it once, would love to again. and you know even the people who have played it over and over and over again...would play the remake over and over and over again most likely.

I'd love to see a FF8...just after FF7.
#13 Posted by Canvas_Of_Flesh (4052 posts) -
I would prefer not to see anymore remakes. Having said that, I think Square should re-release all the titles up to 10 in one huge special edition package.
#14 Posted by tabben (517 posts) -
I would prefer gettin one of the old retro FFs remade. Pref FF6, gief Kefka!!!
#15 Posted by donnygorgas (2531 posts) -
I want both. Nothing wrong with that.
#16 Posted by shabab12 (2613 posts) -
i totally agree. I much preferd ff8 over 7. i cant really pinpoint why but i really think its down to the graphics, story and the load times between areas.

#18 Posted by xoxINSOMNIACxox (647 posts) -
I want a remake of this game as well. I even prefer it from FF7. But having both remake will be awesome!
#19 Posted by gera34 (343 posts) -

How about all ff games get remade for next gen systems??
#25 Posted by whodeysay85 (3237 posts) -
I personally would much rather see a remake of FF VII first. Also, i enjoyed IX more as well.
#26 Posted by babystapler (1679 posts) -
I'd much rather see a FFVI remake than any other game. Period.

Final Fantasy VIII was a excellent game. It was a good following after VII.

well as far as i see it, alot of different people including myself consider FF8 to be a 'good' Final Fantasy game.

No thank you. We limit remakes to the *good* FF games.

8 sucked. A remake of 6 would be great...or 9
#35 Posted by paul999 (240 posts) -

But in a remake the graphics part and load times part are obselete.
#37 Posted by skylinenissan (158 posts) -

we should be greatfull if they make any remakes

i think they should remake 6-9 because i never really got to play them

and to the people who think theyd kill it im pretty sure theyd do a better job remaking it than you would

and if they do remake it theyll just change the graphics

#38 Posted by skylinenissan (158 posts) -

lol X X-2 XI ( the lamest final fantasy for ps2 or xbox 360 since you had to pay) and FF12 are just fine xD

i play x all the time the graphics are fine

but 6 8 and 9 the ghraphics where great for its time but seriously the graphics suck on todays standerds

7 was a great game but i hate the graphics :[

#39 Posted by carving_a_giant (1402 posts) -
i think they should remake final fantasy 13 cos it looks like its gonna be awesome the first time around
#40 Posted by TheLegendKnight (1853 posts) -
i wouldnt want a FF8 remake because its already great as it is. however FF7 is crap so a remake is nice way to save it.
#41 Posted by Lpsquall (329 posts) -

As much as I enjoyed FF7, FF8 holds a special place to my heart. Hell I even tattoo Squall's Chain (Griever) on my arm. My thoughts with the whole FF7 remake is that Square-Enix is going to package the FF7 remake with the Blu-Ray version of FF7-Advent Children. We haven't heard anything more about the movie for about a year now since the mention a Blu-Ray version of the movie. So my guess they are packaging both to make a serious profit.

Now with FF8. Boy would I love a remake. I believe a lot of people complain about the junction system and the love story. First off the junction system is amazing because allows for some serious customization. The love story I could understand why people didn't like it but, every RPG has a one point the theme of love between characters. So what makes FF8 any different?

All in all I would love a remake of both games but my preference would be FF8 then FF7. But Square-Enix would never do release FF8 before FF7.

I think you all will kill me because of this but I would rather like Final Fantasy "Classics" to be on PSP not PS3.

Square Enix started porting FF's to PSP with I, II and Tactics. Then they publish FF7:CC. I would love to see all FF's up to 9 on PSP so Sony's consoles would have them all.

Is SE publish FF 1-9 (yes, remaking 7,8 and 9 with the FF7:CC engine) it woud be incredible. I can only Hope.

SE should be investing a lot of money giving us NEW Final Fantasies on PS3. Let the "old ones" be on PSP.

I agree with this. I would be happy if they just through the originals up on PSN.
#44 Posted by Masterbeat2 (766 posts) -
I think FF8 doesn't need a remake.. It's just perfect for me! and if there is any ff remake I want to see FF6 and maybe Chrono Trigger.. but I think they cancelled CT..:cry:
#45 Posted by zuntyh (3192 posts) -
VIII was my first and favourite of the series as a game itself. However VII had an incredible story and cast of characters that I wanted it to be my favourite, that is possibly the same with others and just put it there as their favourite. A remake, of course I'd play the remakes and most likely love them but. Square-Enix need to stop leeching off old titles for money which SquareSoft developed. I just feel its better to see past titles as relics of the mind and great memories. Not crop up every next gen because fans want to play with better graphics. Then you also have those people who were too stubborn to play VII just because of the graphics then they will be like : "Oh yeah this is awsome". Uhh 10 years ago you said the same game was crap. VIII Would be very nice to see but the original is good enough in my opinion. I heard also IV was to be remade, won't be long until it scales up the series, they need to stop living in the past for money, Final Fantasy was supposed to be their 'Final' game and it saved them I know that. But perhaps they need to overcome the past and start work on new series, the more FF games that appear the more I'll buy. But really they need to focus on something fresh, work more on 'The Last Remnant' and other future titles.

Im with ya pal, FF8 = The best ever final fantasy. Its well better than 7. Although dont get me wrong, 7 is pretty good.

For me it wasn't the love story that was the problem it was the annoying characters, lack of development, the junction system, and plotholes like crazy. Selphie, Quistis, Rinoa and Irvine all acted as if they were 13 years old.(you might even add zell to that list but i actually liked his character) Then it came to character development it was just stinking horrible you knew more about Seifer then you did with most of your own playable characters. The junction system would've been a great idea if it didn't discourage you to use magic. Don't even get me started on the plotholes since you switch main enemies about 20 times throughout the game.

There are goods like Squall and Zell, graphics, and weapons and GFs. Don't get me wrong, it is a really good game but it comes nowhere close to the likes FFVI and FFVII. It will be remade eventually,more than likely at the 20 anniversary of FF8 it will be remade (which is in i think 2019).

I love 7 but I would rather see 8 done. I'll agree with most that that would be dumb on squeenix's part because most of the fans want 7. for most fans it would be like winning a million dollars but they decide to give you 800000 instead, you're still getting something great just not quite what you want.

Id rather a final fantasy 8 remake, final fantasy 7 is good, but 8's story is way better final fantasy 7 just has alot of poeple jumping on the badwagon saying its the greatest, when it isnt ,theyve made extras for final fantasy 7, a preqaul and a film cant argue with that, now give final fantasy 8 summit, even if they remade it on the ps2 with final fantasy 10 graphics, it would be awesome and i bet so many people would buy it, and i bet its cheap for developers to make a ps2 game now
