The Final Fantasy VII Legacy
Final Fantasy released originally in on January 31 1997 in Japan. The highly anticipated game was critically received with score of 9.6 and sales upwards of 9.2 million as per VGcharts. It is the seventh main title in the Final Fantasy Series by developer Square Enix.
Touted as a landmark title and one of the best video games of all times, FF7 was always respected with its exemplary visuals, story and gameplay, not only for its time, but till date by Final Fantasy fans & critics collectively.
The Remake comes at a time when the gaming industry is seeing a resurgence of excellent remasters such as the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, Ratchet & Clank to name a couple, which have both been very well received.
Remakes are also an integral part of how older games are being perceived and played with the universally lauded and even nominated by Gamers the best Remade game for contender of GOTY – Resident Evil 2. This solidifies the notion that when a game is properly remade from the ground, it is not just a ‘nostalgia-grabbing-quick-buck-scheme’ but a carefully resurrected beloved title which undergoes extensive updates to pretty much everything.
