Exactly. I always find the cries of “More Timesplitters! More Killer Instinct!” rather tiresome, and I imagine the developers would rather go on to make new titles.
...so in a day and age where we're crying out for innovation, there's a group of people desperately fighting against it.
(I'm not saying the latest FF games are innovative, but you get my point)
If anything, rather than see FF7 remade, I’d rather see Square make PSone era style games as a Final Fantasy spin off (under the long gone Mystic Quest title maybe) as a PSN/XBLA/Steam title. Perfect platform to do that 2D background/3D battle engine game on, and would be completely free of the pressures of giving something like FF7 the full 3D engine uphaul. Also, being a cheaper (you’d assume it’d be on lesser budget) title on a digital platform, people would be less critical of a game that adheres to the slightly antiquated battle style of the PSone games. And yes, cloud360, those PSone games are really showing their age when it comes to the battle engine. Certainly FF7 is.
