Remaster Disaster: Take the Nostalgia, Leave the Rest

Head Stuff: “Im sure that Final Fantasy VIIs remaster will be hugely popular. Even I want to see Sephiroths descent depicted in a new graphical glory. But Im concerned that itll start chipping away at the memory from when I first played it. Some characters and places wont be how I imagined them to be. Therell be the sudden introduction of voices and dialogue which, no doubt, will be delivered differently to how I originally read it. The broad strokes will be right, but theyll lose something. Some magic that only exists when your imagination fills in the gaps. Even if it looks and sounds exactly as you imagined, the game wont be what you remember.”
