Square Enix is doing their E3 press conference right now and I had to pull away and write about that Final Fantasy 7 Remake gameplay and trailer.

I have never played the original FF7 game. It was before my time and I don’t think the gameplay is something that will hold up for me. Turn based has never been my favorite type of genre, anyways.

I’m sitting here watching The Easy Allies reaction stream live right now, and just by proximity I am feeling a huge amount of nostalgia for FF7 Remake. I have no clue what’s going on, but they’re so excited and apparently now I am too.

The turn based combat is replaced with real time, with moments of slowed down tactical abilities. It looks so fucking good.

The graphics look amazing as well. The cut scenes and characters look top tier. This game definitely feels like end of a console generation type game, if not the beginning of a new one.

I can’t shake the feeling that the game is pretty linear though. Maybe it will open up way more later on though. Again, I know nothing about this game.

This game wasn’t on my radar even a little bit, but it sure is now. I’m looking forward to experiencing this game and story for the first time.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake will release March 3rd, 2020.
