Looks really good. Never did finish the original so probably should do that first.

Is the PS4 version of the original any good? I still have a PS3 that could play the PS1 version but figured I'd just do the PS4 version if it was half way decent port.

It looks like they expanded nicely on the combat system from FFXV and in spite of all the complaints about its story was a lot of fun to play (need to complete that game). The compromise between turn based and action RPG looks amazing and I really like teammate swapping with the press of a button. I've never played the original but I'm seeing complaints about how this remake is too drastic a change. Those gamers can load up the original if they want I can't wait for this remake.

I've only watched the first half (into the prelude to the boss fight) and I kind of like the direction it's going. I think ideally they could have given an option to keep the full turn-based ("wait") gameplay of the original, but I do have to say the new combat style is intriguing. I'm concerned how it'll work out for characters who are more magic/summon types, though, but I imagine they'll have something good for that.

And the voice of Barrett sounding at least a little like Terry Crews? I am now feeling the hype.

I'll listen to true fans of the game for their opinion on it.

Guess Xbox is getting it this year too, I’m looking for a clip where major and someone else mentioned it before their segment ended today....

Some materia is DLC. I am not impressed by that.

First jrpg I finished back in the ps1 days. Definitely a masterpiece. I did try to give it a playthrough on my ps classic a few months ago, but the random encounters killed it for me after a few hours.

I have no nostalgic connection to this game or series since I hate turn-based games. But it really looks beautiful.
