    @cldmstrsn I agree that IV is the pinnacle of Final Fantasy remakes (though I and II weren't too bad either). The sprite work is amazing. I also love the auto-battle. What can I say, I'm a bit lazy when it comes to grinding for levels!
    I haven't been all the way through V on my phone, but I have made it quite far and have found the inclusion of auto-battle a really nice addition. It would have been nice if Square Enix would have given V and VI the same attention as they have continued to give Chrono Trigger. Give us an "old" sprite version option.
    Oh, and I was cool, until I liked the iOS versions of Final Fantasy V and VI, then I became an outcast! ;)Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    @LunarFlame17 I personally prefer the iOS version over the GBA (don't stone me!). It plays just fine, I actually like the updated graphics, and I am really into having a great sound experience, which is where the iOS version does deliver. The tile "problem" isn't super noticeable on iOS.
    Let's not talk about the Steam Version...

    I am excited to hear that we'll be getting more information about the characters. This is a massive undertaking. Whether it keeps the 'spirit' of the original or not, it will be fascinating to see it unfold. I would love to see more.
    I would also love to see it with a better, less 90s, translation!

    I would have liked to see the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Metroid Prime 4, and any hint of Nintendo being willing to sell us Gamecube games. Oh well. There was still a few things I was pretty excited about. Tales of Vesperia is one game I am looking forward to playing again. Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be great. Fire Emblem looked really cool also.Edited 2 times. Last edited last month by Unknown

    @internisus Whether they want it to be in the kids hands or not, it still happens. I get pretty passionate about this because I spend my days with 6th graders (I teach). They see this stuff because it’s created. Their parents bring it home. They see it online. That M on the cover of those games? That’s a badge to brag for some of those kids. Believe it. Sorry for coming on so strong about it. I’ll drop it at this point, but I just have this perspective from what I do every day at work. We don’t need more of that type of game glorified. Respect to you though.Edited last month by Unknown

    @internisus The criticism from me is that they chose to create it that way...and then hope it gets onto the hands of MILLIONS of people. Lots of kids. They want them to “feel” that. Yup. Nothing wrong with our culture...I love games, I think artistic freedom is important as well as freedom of speech, but I’m against whatever this violence porn is.Edited 2 times.

    @internisus I can get what you’re saying, but I have to disagree on one major point. It is abolutely not silly to judge this game based on an “out of context” trailer. This is the material the developers chose to use to market their product. This is calculated and exactly what they want you to see. No accidents. They WANT to portray this level of violence. That’s disturbing to me.

    @nadiaoxford You make a good point, and I understand artistic license and all that. I would have hated to have had to sit there. I was actually just tuning in to the show on our projector in the basement and my kid walked in right during the 'smooch' (he FREAKED by the way) and my gut instinct was 'he can't see this'. It was not even like a second thought. It was just too much. He's 12 and pretty innocent at this point. We don't try to completely shelter him, but I really believe there is a time and place to understand certain information out there. I ended up tuning in later and thought the presentation was okay overall (I'm really a Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Zelda, Mario, type of gamer so it wasn't really for me personally...except Kingdom Hearts of course!).
    Anyway. I don't want to come off as combative or put people down for what they like or create, but for me it was just so over the top.
    Thanks for your comment, it put a little perspective on things for me.Edited last month by Unknown

    Well. They can rest assured I won’t be playing their ‘game’ or...apocalypse simulator. Their product is a prime example of what I personally don’t want to experience in a game. For multiple reasons.
    I’m sure someone will pat their backs and hand them a trophy, but I thought the whole thing was disgusting.

    The New Fire Emblem game looks really interesting to me. Probably my most interested title shown.
    Still holding out some hope for a glimpse of Metroid Prime 4 at some point during E3...
    As well as information on possible Gamecube ports...
    Sigh...
