What Would You Like To See In A Final Fantasy 8 Remake?

Additional Things I'd Like to See

  • Living The Garden Life
    I would love to see an expansion of Squall's time training in the garden. In this game I feel like Square did a great job of making the player feel like they were the main character. Not only do we make choices as Squall but we also get treated to little thought bubbles showing what Squall is thinking of inside his head. I always felt like the events in FF8 happened so fast it would have been nice to kind of just live the garden life, training and then really take that time to show why Squall is exceptional and really give the game some time to ratchet up the rivalry between Squall and Seifer before everything  goes crazy. Think of it almost like Harry Potter Malfoy we get to see those two despise each other through the years and really snipe at each other as they grow up.
  • Laguna's Story
    I've read in the past that Laguna's story was supposed to be longer. It would be nice if it was a little more fleshed out. I'll readily admit those parts weren't my favorite bit but they always did feel a little incomplete.
  • Give Squall and Rinoa a Little More Time Together
    As much as I enjoyed the original their relationship seemed a little rushed almost as if a switched had been pulled and it was time for Squall to start showing a lot more empathy. There are some really beautiful moments in this game, I think of the railroad scene when we are walking to Eshar, the Ragnorark scene while going back down to earth or the I'll come running scene at the orphanage their is some great stuff in there that will look absolutely amazing with next gen graphics.
  • The Sorceress' and Their Power
    There is a popular fan theory that links Rinoa to Ultimecia and based on some of the earlier scenes in the game these actually do have a decent amount of meat to them. I'd be 100% on board if the devs decided to make this theory 100% canon in the remake it would be an awesome twist. But this idea brings me to a larger question. Where does Ultimecia's power come from? Where did Adel's power come from? Why is Ultimecia so powerful? If any Final Fantasy game was remade with different or simultaneous timelines it should have been this game as time travel and future event altering is already part of the fabric of the original game. That's not a gripe on Final Fantasy 7 Remake but I thought that it was an interesting thing to point out.
  • The Mysteries 
    As awesome as Final Fantasy 8 was, when compared to 7, one thing I felt it was lacking were secrets and mystery's that you could discover. In FF7 it was nice to discover Vincent. It was an out of nowhere surprise and having him join your party was totally optional! And then discovering Knights of the Round was awesome as well. Not to mention fighting the planetary weapons, or even the Midgar Zolom. On my first playthrough, I didn't even consider training enough to beat it. My point is FF8 needs a few more random, optional moments like these.

Let's hope that Square is already hard at work on the design docs to make a remake a reality!

      I think this is a pretty good question. On the one hand, Bethesda could go the easy route and handle things similar to something like The Outer Worlds. The player just hops into the ship chooses a planet from a list  of available planets and then after a brief loading screen we arrive.
      FTL/Hyperdrive - Near Instantaneous travel
      I think a more interesting approach would be to select a destination and then have the player choose how travel will be handled. For example, if there is an FTL(faster than light)/hyperdrive drive, perhaps this option would be the fastest option but would come at the expense of using additional energy or fuel.
      Player/Crew Coordination - Manual Travel
      Maybe there is a second slower option that would take a little more time and would require the player to actually coordinate with his crew(assuming we get one) to navigate and arrive at the destination. The benefits of having a set up like this is that it would allow us as players to spend more time with our crew(which would open up some fun role playing moments)and of course would be less resource intensive as the FTL/hyperdrive option.
      Warp Gate - Near Instantaneous Travel for a fee
      Perhaps traveling to certain systems could be conducted through some type of manned warp gate. Player travels to warp gate requests to be sent to a particular set of coordinates. No energy used, no messing around with the crew for manual navigation but the player must pay some type of fee to travel between systems.
      Summary
      There are a ton of different ways that the devs can go with this. Either way though it would be cool to interact with a crew in space. Space flight and travel brings up all kinds of interesting questions. If there is no near instantaneous travel, how much in-game time will pass when we travel from system to system? Will our crew need to be put to sleep during space travel? Do we manually make landings ourselves? Does our ship have individual systems and subsystems that can be damaged and can they affect space flight? Will we have to conduct repairs mid flight? So many good questions. I imagine the team spent a lot of time getting the design right for the game

      Details
      This is the Xbox/Bethesda showcase reveal of Starfield. Todd Howard starts off with a little commentary at the beginning(he led development of Elder scrolls and Fallout) It's an in-game teaser! (Creation Engine 2) The graphics look pretty amazing, when I first watched the trailer I didn't realize it was in-game footgage. I thought it was a cinematic trailer. My Takeaway
      They should have revealed something else that would get people really hyped. The graphics do look amazing but after 3 years I think its fair to say that fans were expecting a little more meat. It's a enough to keep us from starving for now but we wanted to see a little more.

      This is a quick trailer that provides an inside look at the development of Starfield. It seems that it will be likely that Bethesda will use a steady content drip to provide new information on the game.
