  2. Final Fantasy VII Remake
  3. Will this game be as good as the original and have the same impact?

To those claiming this will likely or has the potential to be better than the original, did you also think the same thing about XIII/XV/KHIII before and after they were released?
Your schtick is getting old. Can't you come up with something new or original?

But as for the kind of impact OG VII had on gaming as a whole? Yeah, I don't think that's possible for ANY game, much less this Remake.


To be honest, I think Dark Souls had more of an impact than FFVII did. There are many action RPGs/games imitating the soulsborne gameplay concept, while there were barely any games inspired by FFVII (Planescape Torment did list FFVII and FFVIII as inspirations though...but that's only one game).

I have not played those games, but apparently, the story isn´t good.
However, Final Fantasy VII story is regarded as great (for some reason I don´t understand).
And they are using the original story as the basis for the new game.

To the development community yes Souls had more impact, but to the gaming community as a whole, VII was more revolutionary

It looks good but I am concerned it will lose it's charm due to modernization which seems to be killing everything.

Interesting point. Can you elaborate on this?

I can only think that it made JRPGs popular in the West. Considering the part of Arvis post I was quoting, I'd even say Super Mario Brothers was far more impactful in terms of popularity than FFVII can ever hope to be.

Souls "invented" a genre.

7 made popular a genre that existed for years.

Can't argue with that.

Although the previous poster credits it to dark souls but demon souls was the first.
