I'm planning on giving this Game one last shot.. If it carry classic Traditional Turned base Combat system with strong storyline (I'm sure storyline will remain the same Heh). I'll died happy! (Tears rolls down my cheek)

If Squire Enix ruin the Combat System by making it into like Action Game, That is it for me.. The RPG is truly dead on console.

I do like action rpg like the Y's series but nowdays with rpg action games they alway have more than one character and you can only play one of them, but can switch to different character.. nevertheless you won't be able to play them all like Turned Base System. Also most of the action rpg is out of focus..

I do like Star Ocean, but still...Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior/Quests Combat system should remain the same which is Turned base.. I and many others enjoyed playing Turned base system it go well with the decent Storyline...

I did love Legend of Dragoon, the Turned Base system on there is bit different and having to time the strikes, but nevertheless its simple and learning curve only take 15 min or 45 min.

I also like Grandia II Combat System.

I'm curious what your feeling/thoughts on future Final Fantasy VII Remake? Will it closely remain the same, or they'll make it into Action game?

Sony and Nintendo systems have the largest library of jrpgs, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, so I dunno where you get the idea that RPG's on consoles are dead...

I agree with the turn-based battlesystem, even if it's realtime, in a sense that you make your turn, but your enemy doesn't have to wait such as in Final Fantasy 9. It can work perfectly.
I believe it will disappoint people no matter what, because the hype around the title is just too much for it to truly work. I think it will be an amazing game though, probably shorter than the original though since the sheer size of the original just seems like too much for something to be conceived with modern graphics.

The combat system will also most definitely be different whether we like it or not. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see them do something like they're doing for Final Fantasy 15, a kingdom hearts action rpg style.
If that's going to happen, we can expect a much more hacknslash styled game rather than the classic micro-management.
In all honesty I'm not too sure how to feel about that, because on one end, it makes sense to not just repeat the original step-by-step, but on the other hand it seems kind of blasphemous to shake it all around with a modern square enix spin on the whole ordeal.

I'm also very worried about the original soundtrack, if they're going to update it to a fully realized big band/choir thing or if they are making something entirely new with j-pop and generic fantasy epics, that would make me quite sad.

The worst thing (in my opinion) they could possibly do, would be turning it into a final fantasy 13-esque experience. I'm gonna burn Square Enix to the ground if that happens.

I think XII's ADB mixed with some Crisis Core action elements would work well for VIIR. They should just add gambit sets (since some who played XII couldn't understand it) for the party. I don't like the limited and slow movement they did with XIII. I don't know how XV plays but surely they won't make it similar.

It's funny how epic classic games are often remade, and more than not the remakes are disappointing and gamers point and say to the studio: "You had one job, just give us the same game and upgrade the graphics/sound/SFX."

I got nothing against the FF line but at the same time, in 2015 menu-based turn combat has gotta evolve. Like you guys pointed out, I definitely would feel disgusted if the FFVII remake took on FFXIII style combat, that would just be insulting to fans and the game itself. The best combat system in my completely biased opinion is the Tales of series combat, but I don't think it'd work very well in a FF setting. "Open" world combat would be fun though.

Oh, if they adopt something similar to The Last Remnant's system I'd also be pretty mad. I hate all the Hollywood blockbuster style "action shots" hit-this-button kind of stuff. Those belong in CoD and Tomb Raider. Even then, they never fail to be annoying.

Turn Based RPGs are a thing of the past, but that doesn't mean they're bad. I'm incredibly disappointed that 90% of modern RPGs are more action games with horrific gameplay that revolve around button mashing and stat spreading rather than RPGs. Bravely Default was the perfect way to improve upon the Turn-Based system with a modern twist while keeping it traditional and respectful to classic RPGs. I'd be really upset if they went ahead and turned FF VII into some Action-RPG wannabe.

I would prefer a remake of Legend of Dragoon to FFVII, but that may be because I'm a little biased having not played much FFVII :P.
