Watch: Final Fantasy 7 Remake vs Final Fantasy 7 (Original)

Square Enix made dreams come true when it announced that Final Fantasy 7 would, at long last, finally be getting a remake on PS4. And now that we've seen the first bits of gameplay at PlayStation Experience 2015, we can finally start to judge what's changing in this new take on Cloud Strife's timeless journey. The short answer: a lot. Take a look as we analyze Barret's new shades, the look of the AVALANCHE crew, and even the orientation of a scorpion robot’s stinger.


I've been playing games since I turned four in 1986, been writing about them since 1987, and writing about them professionally since 2008. My wife and I live in New York City. Chrono Trigger is my favorite game ever made, Hum's Downward is Heavenward is my favorite album, and I regularly find myself singing "You Won't See Me" by The Beatles in awkward situations.
