Contrary to what many on the internet are saying,Final Fantasy 7 is about characters and a story, not a combat system. I hope they go crazy with the remake. Yes, we'll always have the original, but I want to see more back-story, more interaction, more...everything! I would also like to see real-time combat. That's right folks, it's time to put aside the nostalgia goggles so that a new generation of gamers can acquaint themselves with Cloud and the gang.Can you imagine Cloud blocking bullets with the broad-side of his buster sword while charging Shinra troops!? Epic! I do fear, however, that the game will be too dark. Don't get me wrong, the original was pretty damn dark (prostitution, death, the end of the world, etc.), but the presentation of each character was multi-dimensional. There were funny times, good times, somber times, etc.My hope is that there are plenty more of these! If the game is too dark, it means that the lighter side of the characters we came to love didn't come through, and that would be a shame.
