As we're all well aware, Sony dropped an absolute bomb at E3 2015 by revealing the existence of a Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Not only did this heal the wounds of the disappointing Playstation experience, at which a PC port of Final Fantasy 7 was revealed for the PS4, it basically gave us another arm...hmm.
In any case, Final Fantasy fans around the world completely lost it, with literally hundreds of hours of reaction videos hitting YouTube. But has the news of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake taken the spotlight from Final Fantasy 15 completely? Are fans no longer as excited seeing as the best Final Fantasy game is returning to current generation consoles?
Final Fantasy 15 vs Final Fantasy 7 Remake for Fans Attention
Final Fantasy 7 has an extraordinary legacy in gaming. I never engaged with any of these games as a kid, my introduction to Final Fantasy came much later. But I recall its reputation among friends. It's still regarded as one of the greatest games ever created, with its storyline often being cited as one of the best the industry has ever produced. I'm excited to see how they transform the game for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and to be honest, I'm more excited for that than I am for Final Fantasy 15.
But I suppose that's due to the fact that I really wasn't that big a fan of the Final Fantasy 15 demo. The game was so beautiful and the open world was amazing. The combat however was pretty banal and after I'd escaped beyond the map to find the titan, there wasn't much left for me to get excited about. Am I alone in feeling this way? Or does the Final Fantasy 15 demo still surprise you?
I can't wait to se how Square Enix bring back one of the greatest Video Games ever made for a new generation. How much of the game will be transformed? Will there be new scenes written? Can you imagine how good the score is going to sound?! The only problem is that we literally have no idea how far Final Fantasy 7 Remake is from us! This could take a very long time to come to pass. Though I suppose the same goes for Final Fantasy 15.
So where do you stand Final Fantasy fans? Is the Final Fantasy 7 Remake a more exciting prospect then a brand new game in the form of Final Fantasy 15? Let us know where you stand in the comments below!
