They made Cloud into this Mary Sue who cares about people and has too much personality instead of just a stoic badass who legitimately doesn't care about things not related to him, like Aeris talking to flowers. OG Cloud would've been like "Um ok" instead of yelling at the flowers to "be better at talking to Aeris".. At least early on in the game.

Whoever wrote the script needs a spanking. Everything is so overdramatic.

Anyway I'm enjoying it so far for the most part. Battle is mostly fine, although I just got done playing God of War so I'm pretty spoiled in terms of action combat mechanics. It's also a little awkward how they're restructuring the story, but we already know all the twists so it's like, oh I see what's happening here.

Thank you

The worst part is all the little grunts rather than saying something. This happens far too often in Japanese games.

Is Cloud even more of a jerk then the original, or is it a lack of dialogue choices that causes him to default to being a jerk?

I would never talk to Tifa that way...
Where's my money? Where's my money? Where's my money Tifa!?

While she's sweet as can be...

I never felt that Cloud was likeable anyway..
I hope they make remake so large that I can spend fifty years strolling through it

Hey, he's not that bad toward Tifa though? he just seems to have trust issues i guess (i mean money talk is serious business), still when you look at how he speak to other people (even Marle) Tifa can say he's just a little cold toward her.

I don’t see a problem. He was a jerk in the original with moments of being soft. They are trying to show hints of him having a double personality so to speak, the stoic badass he wishes he was conflicting with his real inner self. I find his depiction here to be better than being simply a one note character.

Lack of dialogue choices. The remake chose the path where Cloud remains a jerk early game, and doesn't start warming up until Tifa and especially Aerith break through his shell
I'm guessing a lot of people made OG Cloud nicer from the get go

I disagree. Cloud's very much an a****** this time around and he's just beginning to thaw near the end. In the original for example, he becomes fond of Aerith very quickly. There's almost no buildup because of the limitations of it being a PS1 game with a pretty hefty story for the time. This time around Cloud warms up to her over time which is far more in line with who he is.
I have somewhere to be but I don't want to go there. pooh truncus!

Well for example,
Marlene goes to bed, and Tifa asks "What can I get for you?" (Sweet and flirtatious.)
Instead of sitting down and ordering a drink and talking to his sweetheart he says: "My money!"
