The Internet’s Reaction to Final Fantasy VII on PS4
Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy VII was coming to the PlayStation 4. It’s not a remake, but the PC version. Final Fantasy VII launched on the original PlayStation way back in 1997. For years, gamers have been asking for a remake. In fact, the game is the most wanted PlayStation 4 remake in Japan.
People were extremely excited when they see the words “Final Fantasy VII” flash on the screen at the recent PlayStation Experience event. As Kotaku first pointed out, the crowd reaction to the announcement was, well, best summed up in this GIF courtesy of Mike Fahey:
Folks aren’t exactly thrilled by the announcement! As of posting, the official trailer has over 13,000 dislikes on YouTube and 2,000 likes.
People expressed their feelings online. Here’s the reaction from around the internet:
I just hope the fact that FFVII is being ported to the PS4 doesn't indicate a bad sign for PS1 Classics on PSN for PS4.

Square's official company line is that they're not remaking FFVII until they make a game better than FFVII (it's true I swear)

I just remembered that I joked about FFVII G-Bike getting a port to PS platforms.
Clearly I was still aiming way too high. XD
