Dragon Quest XI is bigger than the original FF VII and was released in one whole. The same could’ve been done for a FF VII remake.

Don’t believe Nomura’s lies.

No it isn't. Why do you think it features 3 long Acts of visiting the same handful of locations? And it still took them 5+ years to make it.

And while DQXI was gorgeous, it wasn't exactly pushing graphical limits. Not many fans were holding out hope for a VII Remake that looks like DQXI, let's be honest.

Admittedly wasn't a huge fan when I heard about it, but after playing the game I'm really happy with what we got.

Like looking back, the scene with the plate falling was done really well and with such gravitas, I can't imagine how it would've played out if it occurred in the first 4 hours of gameplay. So I'm kinda torn.

I will say, if this stretches out more than 3 installments, it'll be a tough sell for me.

It depends solely on how good each subsequent part is. If they’re all this good, I don’t mind. But one bad part and we could be getting into trouble.

Disparaging DQ again while you prop up FF... hmm harder and harder to believe you're not just being a FF fanboy like I originally suspected.

Weren't you just b****ing about reductive falsehoods... hmmm...

Do you have anything to say about the content of my critique? I didn't intend to disparage the game at all, as it's one of the best RPGs I've ever played and my personal 2018 GOTY.

I think calling DQ 3 acts and acting like they're all repeated areas is obviously a lie. It's a 2 act game with a postgame and the 2nd act has quite a few new areas and changed areas.

But you've made it clear this "2018 goty" is just posturing so people who don't pay attention will take your subtle fanboying VII:R seriously.

I mean, I rate every game I play here on GFAQs. Gave DQXI a 9/10.

I understand that you want to discredit me because my opinions conflict with yours and, for whatever reason, that makes you uncomfortable, but DQXI is a long 3-act game with tons of backtracking, period. That doesn't make it a bad game, just an efficiently-designed one that walks a good balance between making its world expansive and its visuals both high-quality and varied.

Go compare the number of areas in DQ XI vs FF VII. There’s not much difference.

Development started in 2013 and the game was released mid-2017.

Neither is FF VIIR. And while the style of graphics that FF VIIR has takes more time to create than the more cartoony style of DQ XI, it’s not enough to make a single release remake economically impossible.

Even if we were to assume that FF VIIR had to look worse to release as a single game, I’m pretty sure most people would’ve made that sacrifice.

Unlikely, and I don't know if it would have had the wow factor in that scenario to be the sales phenomenon it currently is. And that's not even taking into account the complications of taking a game with as many unique pre-rendered backgrounds as VII and remaking every single one of them in full AAA HD 3D.

Anyway, you make good points though.
