Whatever remake you could conceive for Chrono Trigger in your head would be easier to develop, reimagine, and recreate.

Chrono Trigger DS was pretty good, yeah. The extra dungeon was neat.

I actually really disliked the cutscenes they added to Chrono Trigger for PS1 when I played that. (Not that I felt any better about similar efforts.)

There's something about the morose and almost desperate feeling the original game creates for most of the locations in the timeline, especially in line with the musical score, that changing the pacing is more dramatic than once games were built with cutscenes in mind like FF VII. Some of the other FF remakes have had similar trouble with this.

I considered playing the Steam version of VIII a while back to see how it's held up after not touching it this century until I remembered the summons. Though maybe they patched in a skip button.

I also donít get this thread. If square of today remade CT theyíd extend the part where you first go into the past 20 hours and cut the game into multiple parts.

There also hasnít been a CT remake as far as I know. Just ports with nothing significant added except fmvs.

Worst part was the midi tunes change, but after playing it a bunch playing on pc at a friends place i got p into it. still take the psx tunes every time.

1. there's a psx tunes mod

and

2. you can mod it to play orchestrated music

Footage of me playing FFVIII pc modded.



Orchestrated songs in this video include Balamb Garden and Blue Fields (world map theme). They are from the Fiithos Winosec Wecos Vinosec soundtrack.

Summons in FFVIII are for Junctioning only, ya' dope.  :doge
Also yeah, playing with Rose&wine mod is a must, even though i still prefer the PS1 version emulated, so i can use the d-pad.

XENOGEARS Remake >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Anything Else Remake

I wanted to like FFVIII so bad back then, but it didn't grab me like VII, or VI did for that matter.   But wanting to get the FF8 demo so bad, I sucked it up to buy Brave Fencer Musashi... and absolutely LOVED that game!! 

Tried to give FFVIII another try recently and it bored the living piss outta me just trying to get out of that stupid ass school... So yeah, it needs more a remake too.   The demo started off soooooooo much better.

The school bits are short. FFVIII has amazing pacing. Shame it didnít grab you.
