Do you even have to ask? lol
I want them to keep the turn-based gameplay. Many gamers nowadays, especially the younger ones, would probably prefer action-based gameplay. I'd love to have multiple battle systems. I imagine the final battle between Cloud and Sephiroth would be amazing in a FFXV type of gameplay, or the epic battles against Weapons, man those would be awesome! I have so many speculations running through my head lol I guess I'm just too excited!
I'm curious how they would implement random battles, if at all. Having the enemies visible on the field so I can choose to avoid or engage them would be great, I think. One thing that would probably a good addition if they keep the turn-based battle system is to streamline the whole battling process — implement skip summoning/casting sequence, make animations fast-paced, overall making the whole battling experience fast-paced so you're not spending 50 hours in one random battle.
I hope they don't change the soundtrack though! I mean, you know you have an amazing game if you listen 1 second of a soundtrack and you already know what game it is from!
But man, what really excites me is reliving the experience in glorious HD. Memories of the 13 yr old me flashed back when I watched the video. I can't wait to roam around the slums of Midgar (I wonder if they'll keep the Honey Bee Inn, can't wait for the crossdressing scenes!). I love the atmosphere seen in the announcement video. I know that it is a prerendered CGI, but given the realtime gameplay footage they're showing with FFXV, I can safely assume that the remake will feature a seamless, massive and gorgeous open-world. That said, I'm expecting the remake to scale the world up as well, so that towns are not just a few houses (Rocket Town was one rocket and 5 houses IIRC). You know what, I could go on and on about what I'd love to see in the remake, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see! It's not going to be out anytime soon, so I'll have ample time to prepare my heart for the epic to come (and draw fanart in the meantime! )
(I hope the remake turns into a massive success, so we'll have a remake of FFVI and FFIX, I can then rest in peace lol)

One thing that I really like is that it will actually be a Squaresoft game in next gen. As in, not the convoluted new Final Fantasies, but a classic Squaresoft game given the super graphics treatment. That's the best of both worlds, really.

FFVII is interesting, I suppose, but I've yet to actually finish that one (so long). I would add FFX to the list if the main character had been anyone other than Tidus...honestly, I would much prefer playing Wakka or Lulu's POV. Protagonists can be hit or miss at times.

I've played XII, XIII and a bit of X and watched people play through parts of VII, VIII, IX and X-2. None of them really grabbed me, and I guess some really overzealous fans kind of soured the series as a whole for me.
To be honest... I prefer Bravely Default umu

Replying to an old thread cause I'm new here
FFX is my favorite and I really love the HD remake as I never got to play the international additions years ago.
My general consensus on post X games
11/14 - No clue on these as MMOs aren't my type of game. Don't have the money or time for them!
12 - Engaging story, world, and characters. The main character is considered pointless by a lot of people as Ashe is really who it's all about. The battle system was kind of controversial when it first came out, but after playing it for a while I enjoyed it.
13 - I liked the mythology of this game a lot, but didn't actually enjoy the game at all. It's very linear and missed the exploration aspect that I love so much in RPGs. The sequels are also really confusing story-wise and its the first FF game where I gave up on trying to understand the plot.
15 - I hated this game when it first came out. I actually had it pre-ordered and then cancelled because all of the trailers and reviews were really disappointing to me. And that was a good decision because the game that they released wasn't finished at all! Disappointing battle system, entire chunks of the story missing, characters disappearing without any explanations... it was a mess. But to SE's credit they've been patching and adding DLC (free and paid) almost nonstop since release and it's basically a new game compared to what it was in Nov 2016. I enjoy it a lot more now, but I wish I had from the beginning.
