FF7 is on sale so once again I am considering buying it but I always run into the same fucking question. Should I buy it or wait for the remake? I've heard that FF7, in particular, got FUCKED by the passage of time.

Also which is better, Steam version or PS4 version?

af1b11  No.15670668

Unless you're posting form an N-Gage or something then what you're browsing the net with right now can emulate the original fine. Also it holds up fine too because it was one of the last JRPGs without completely fucked pacing.

You can't fire people from another company, retard. CC2 did some development for it, and Square Enix didn't like the quality, so they scrapped it and are doing it in-house instead.

I had my doubts that it was going smoothly, the whole "going smoothly" thing was probably just fucking damage control.

As for the whole "time and effort to pirate" shit I said, I am pretty tired and ain't all there atm. Plus I usually never like playing a game through on emulation only for some unknown reason. (I just don't feel good about it I guess? Sometimes they don't feel as fun or some autism.)

Anyway I should probably just do what I should've and just pirated the fucker and tried it out. If I like it I'll continue and if I don't then I'll fucking kill myself and become one of those faggots who always calls FF7 overated on threads because I have nothing better to do.

I still have no fuckin clue of the best version however, some niggers say just emulate the orignal and some niggers say steam version with mods. For fuckers who've actually played BOTH which did you prefer so I don't crave death on my first attempt.

The remake is going to be episodic, have completely different gameplay and is most likely going to remove the less politically correct elements from the story. The original game aged fine, aside from the graphics which look like everything is made out of Lego blocks.

Been thinking VIII was better than VII, but both way better than IX.

Also, FF13 games had great music and are worth playing for that alone.

I think FF12 had the best mechanics and made the pacing very good due to gambits.

OP I'll give you a simple answer. No, you should not buy Final Fantasy VII. If you want to play it, you should pirate it because the money you're paying for won't go to Squaresoft. It will go towards Square Enix, who has shown time and time again they don't deserve it.

If you create a time machine and go back to the year it came out? That's the only moment you should consider paying for it.

I haven't played the remake Strange Odyssey, but I can tell you from personal experience that ORAS was shit because it was 1000x easier than the original, barely added anything other than a day-night cycle and on the whole pretty point less considering that they kept none of the charm of the original (so older players wouldn't like it) and newer players wouldn't like it because it's doesn't represent what's good about the Pokemon games.

>>15702570

Honestly, I'd say the opposite. At least the junction system made you think about battles before hand and made you strategize a bit. XIII's battle system felt like it almost played itself from what I played of it and not in the Ogre Battle way where you organize shit before the battle then it plays itself and even then you can change their tactics between turns. It felt kinda dull.

I really don't get the Final Fantasy fandom, the game is grindy as hell even to a JRPG, annoying 5-steps random battles, the plot is confusing and gay, the characters are dull, flat and gay.

I could lose my day listing better JRPGs on the PS1 only, get a Fatlus one for better plot/character development, get any published by Sony for better gameplay, any other by Square/Enix itself for less grindy and smoother experience.

Only Famitsu corruption(perfect 10 to every single FF) can explain FF fame and cult following for such mediocre games.

You can become overpowered quickly in every Final Fantasy game it seems like. In FF7 I found myself trying to avoid encounters as much as possible to avoid kicking the shit out of the stuff I had to fight. FF is to JRPGs what Halo is to FPS. I like them both, having grown up alongside them but I see them for what they are. Barebones mechanics, good presentation.

If graphics make or break a game for you, don't play FF7. Don't play the remake either, because it will be shit.

If you care about sound design, music, story, characterization, setting, worldbuilding, or turn-based RPG gameplay, then you should play the original. I wouldn't recommend buying it because you can emulate it just fine, but you can do whatever's most convenient for you.

Don't play the remake, because it will be shit. It bears repeating.

Pre-renders still look nice, the low poly chibis aren't great but not awful either and you'll do fine unless you are an autistic graphics whore lauding 30 fps cinematic walking sims. Also the steam version is updated from the original PC version and therefore has that awful midi soundtrack, so get a patch to fix that before anything.
