Poll What's the next Final Fantasy game they should remake? (44 votes)

Hell yea I want another Final Fantasy remake. 48%
Nah, no more remakes. 52%

I'm going to go with one of my favorites, Final Fantasy 8. I used to think it was better than 7. It's been 20 years since I played lol, but I don't know if that opinion holds now. 7 is a classic. Other than that, I think Final Fantasy Tactics would be another great remake idea. How about you, SW? What's the next Final Fantasy game Square-Enix should remake?

I'm enjoying FF7 Remake but it's not my usual thing. Once the FF7 Remake project is complete, I probably won't be buying another FF game.

None of them. Do Parasite Eve instead. Xenogears would be my first choice but thats a pipe dream.

VI but with all the terrible voice acting is the remake, i would rather not have it. Although i hated VII when I originally played it so thats why I didn’t get the remake.

FF6 could do with a remake. Not that cheap mobile remake from a few years ago, but a proper FF7R treatment.

I'd say the first game. I think it'd be a good test bed for intercompany crossovers, n' i think the ideal situation for a FF1 remake would be to have game development outsourced to Bandai Namco Studios Inc., so as to introduce the Tales Series' Linear Motion Battle System to the Final Fantasy franchise.

Should that happen, would Motoi Sakuraba still be doing the soundtrack or would that fall on Motoi Sakuraba's lap?

6/8/9 would be my go-to, but this would be decades down the line, and would probably suffer, especially if no original staff were around.

@SolidGame_basic:

I think they should go from Final Fantasy VI and work their way to X. But the most likely scenario will probably be FFVIII getting a remake next.

As much as i like FFIX i think it could lose its charm with a remake, same goes for VI, but i gladly take a remake of Parasite Eve and one of Final Fantasy Tactics.

I would definitely like to see ffvi get the remake treatment. It would be awesome seeing the Blackjack or Kefka's Tower with modern graphics. I'm not sure they would take the risk from a business standpoint though. Ff7 remake was more or less a guaranteed moneymaker, but the others are more iffy.

I never got the chance to play FFVII, finally it was remade 23 years later and I can say it is one of my favourite games of the generation. Absolutely phenomenal gameplay and arguably the best combat system in any game of the last decade, bar perhaps games like Devil May Cry 5.

Didn't play FFVIII or FFIX either, two all time great RPGs. FFX was my first, and even that game is 19 years old now. top 3 best game ever for me. I tempted to buy the remaster, but at this rate I might just want to wait a generation for a proper remake.

So I want FFVIII remake for PS5 in ≈ 2022, then FFIX remake ≈ 2024 and finally FFX remake in ≈ 2026. Day 1 buy for all three.

In terms of games that could use a remake, would probably make the most sense to carry on with 8 and 9. They're not quite as rough around the edges as OG FFVII, but still pretty rough, and FFIX is just sooooo sloooow to the point that I'd rather not replay it.

But if they're just looking to make safe bets, seems mainstream popularity goes 7>10>6. Pretty sure they could safely remake 10 and 6 with the FF7R budget.

10 still holds up pretty well though, especially with the remaster. Of course 6 is an ancient ass game, but still plays nice and snappy, precedes the bloat and cringe shit that became common in JRPGs, and still looks more than fine for an old 2d game. So a remake could just be doing a good game disservice.

The others? I think just about any FF remake would sell, but split into larger parts as a big budget deal? Probably too risky. A faithful overhaul would suffice. Just redo all the visual aspects (IN THEIR ORIGINAL CONCEPT ART STYLE NOT THIS WEIRD REALISTIC ANIME SHIT), make QOL changes, maybe a bit of added content. Not only would this be way cheaper, would also be what people actually want lol.

Personally, FFVI is my fav and I used to really want a fully realized remake. Buuut I had my concerns over how modern SE would handle it. And now I see that those concerns were justified.

Please don't touch FFVI SE. And if they ever do, please either put Yoshi-P on the project, bring Sakaguchi out of his surfing retirement, or go find Ito. I trust those dudes enough as leads, just no Nomura/Nojima tainting that shiz, plz.

While I'm at it, same goes for FFIV.

I want a reboot, or at least new old game. Go back to classic roots of Final Fantasy... medieval, knights, monsters, magic, etc. I would prefer the classic look, or at least in the realm of IX, but I don't want realistic looking worlds or characters.

C'mon OP you're not this stupid right? They haven't even finished the first remake and won't be finished until way into next gen, and you want them to do another one lol.

And they should just leave the best FF game (FF8) and butcher something else.

They should remake 8 and make canon that fan theory where Squall actually died, but do in the opening intro of the game. And not play as Squall.

Yes. Just make the game follow Laguna, Kiros and Ward on their journey. Much cooler party with way the **** better battle music. Was always disappointed when those flashbacks would end and I'd have to go back to the regular bums.

Shit, why does SE do that? Even in FFX, the flashbacks of Braska, Auron, and Jecht seem way cooler than the actual game.

I can't imagine you playing a Final Fantasy game. Is 8 your favorite because you get to drive a car? Lol. Then FF15 should be your favorite.

Think that's about where I stopped playing. Did seem weird how it just jumped to this shit, sure it goes somewhere and has a payoff, but kinda don't give a shit by that point.

From what I remember the default party are like some elite group, but they all sound like mentally defective hippy 13 year olds hanging around with that kid who smokes on his way to school look cool, about as subtle as a brick and as charming as the Gungans.

Something like The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky has all these tropes down to a T, but those games are great, Final Fantasy 8 is like a big danger sign not to play weeb games.

That's casual4ever bad levels of trolling, you should be and probably are embarrassed with that. Here let me help you out.

Since this thread is tragic, why don't you start a thread about the other episodes of the remake, reimaging, refucking or whatever you call it these days, asking where people think if Sony is going to PAY for a year exclusivity of the other episodes, that way you and other cows can wet your panties with excitement when the poll goes in your favour LMFAO.

Yup, sounds about right.

The FF games on SNES were completely different, charming casts of characters, actually kinda sucked when you'd lose one.

FFVII went full animu, but still an enjoyable enough cast I guess. At least Cid is great lol.

With FFVIII, the bottom fell out. Couldn't begin to give a shit about those characters. Pretty sure only FFXIII is worse.

They seem to be better at remakes than with sequels. The sequels went downhill after IX. I think they should remake IX, the best one.

No more remakes. This gen has become oversaturated with revisiting of old games at full price. Next gen looks like sequel paradise.

They should finish this remake first and then another team make new ff game base on that agni's philosophy tech demos. I just like when ff takes place on that type of setting.

First off, knowing Square Enix, they'll finish the FF7 remake in 2030. Anyhow, FF8 seems like a great choice, they already have the FF7 engine running so it shouldn't be too hard.

I'm torn. I want a 3d FF6 or Tactics, but I don't want Squenix to ruin both of their games. Not that 7 is ruined, but it could happen.

I'm bias I want them to remake FF9. However, I think judging by the consensus FF6 was probably the second best one FF. Maybe FF6.

FF9 100% deserves a decent remake, and not this episodic shit. That being said, they'd really need to rework the art, otherwise it would look weird as shit.

FFIX was the best of the PS1 FF, so that would make sense but it is not the most popular--and SE barely just did the remastered version, so I doubt it. I do want IX as well.
