    Hell no.
    I can see them adjusting stuff to fit in better with later FF7 titles (i.e. changing the Zack scenes to more closely fit Crisis Core), but Aerith's death is a key point in the narrative and one of the most well remembered parts of the series.
    It would be like if they remade FF6 but the world didn't end halfway through the game.

    No, because that's a major change in the story. If you change that scene, then you have to basically re-write everything else.

    I want to see paid DLC to avoid Aerths death then just kill her right before the end anyhow.

    Yeah, that's my point. A lot of the story could easily be re-written.

    I'm guessing there will be some sort of choice you can make to alter the storyline at some critical moments.

    Frankly, if we wait 20 years for FF7, people will want more than... well okay Squaresoft already made it HD and completely changed combat, but people will still want some choices in the story (besides dating).

    We'll see. I don't have a PS4 so it probably won't matter to me.

    One of the many reasons why I don't see anything wrong with them. This was the case for me with Darksiders 2 and Borderlands TPS (which I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would).

    That doesn't bother me too much really. I still think the switch is neat, but what has killed the hype for me is all the issues people are having. I think what irks me the most is how cheap the POS dock is.

    Changing the story is the worst decision they could make. You don't buy a remake of a classic title expecting "something different." You buy it to relive the experience. This isn't one of those games where you get to decide how the story pans out and I'd like to keep it that way....

    FF7 doesn't need to change a ton of story stuff, but I think they could provide a couple of alternative scenarios. The one the sticks out to me is saving/redeeming Dyne and maybe getting him as a new party member. I know people who don't like Barrett really don't care about that story, but it could have more impact, as Dyne was one of the many characters that I've never even seen artwork for, so I don't know exactly what he's supposed to look like.

    I'm really not sure how I feel about no random encounters being confirmed, main problem being that means probably no overworld. WTF is FF7 without an overworld with random enemy encounters?? Are they just gonna spawn out of sight?

    Meh, doesn't really matter I guess, shit won't be out for another 5 years.

    Since the game's going the action route, and seeing what they did with FF 12 to 15, more than likely you'll just see monsters and enemies going about their business, and have the option of moving/driving around those bums when you don't care to fight.

    Not sure why people want the story changed for FF7, only changes that should be made is the ones Square said they were gonna do like better presentation via dialog and and prob some new and/modified plot to better incorporate events of Crisis Core since now people are away of those events

    The story probably won't change, but they've already confirmed it's not just a "remake" so it's gonna be a whole new experience altogether.

    Like they also said, if you want the original, just play the original.

    "Classic" style turn-based gameplay in the style of FF and DQ and the like really just doesn't cut it anymore in a large majority of cases. They were rarely as deep as its proponents like to claim.

    Going forward, more turn-based RPG systems need to take inspiration from the turn-based tactics genre, which lends itself better to having actual strategy and interesting tactical decisions.

    I am honestly rather glad they ditched the turn base gameplay.

    What I would REALLY like is if it will let you actively switch between party members during fights on the fly.

    This is really my only concern regarding the gameplay and it seems like you can so I'm not even that worried about it.

    Having regular attacks with magic and specials on cool down sound like it could replicate the feeling while still making the battle feel more active which I would certainly hope is the plan.

    I'm honestly excited just to see Cyber Connect making a PvE game again. I really like .hack GU and since then all I've seen is poorly balanced spectacle fighters and that Asura movie.

    the only hd re-releases I need are

    Full SF2 collection
    Full SFA collection
    Tokyo Xtreme Racer collection
    CPS2 Marvel collection (or XSF)
    DS Castlevania collection - add option for arranged OST

    I have no desire to play anything else older than 360 era.

    No changes to graphics in games - only filters. No gameplay changes in either. Added online.

    As much as Capccom loves money grabs - I can't figure out for the life of me why those games haven't been released since PS2/PS1 era. If only HDR had full CPS2 mode available...

    Yea Mark of Kri was fuckin cool. Picked both of those up for my PS2 last year. Was impossible to play on my HDTV tho, was impossible to see anything. Gotta dig out the CRT.

    And people wonder why I spent so much on RGB cables, switchers and upscallers.
    The difference is being able to play that very PS2 game on a HDTV or not.

    It's also when someone wants to play a Retro console on a HD TV and buys the $2 AV cable, I tell them it is simply not good enough.

    Microsoft got cocky and felt they can do no wrong and the whole DRM thing burned more bridges that Microsoft could afford to lose.
    XB1's DRM where you always have to be online and individual game discs have a unique code that only works for the console it was registered for.
    Also the day after the announcement, Sony had their own announcement saying you are free to share your game discs and they are not making always on a requirement for gaming.
    Although individual publishers could still bring in their own Always online DRM package.

    This was all before E2 of 2013. And Microsoft has yet to gain that ground back. Most people I spoke who work game retail told me PS4 tends to sell well, while Xbone stays in the backroom for months at a time.
    Unless the Console as Limited edition version or bundled with a hot game, skus for consoles don't sell for MS.
