I don't care about the Final Fantasy VII remake, even though FF VII is one of my favorite JRPGs. I feel like the original 1997 version, though dated, has such a charm to it. And no, I didn't play the original version back when it was released. I played it in the mid 2000s, when graphics were already considerably better. And yet, I was still charmed by it.

Frankly, I am getting tired of video game remakes. I really am. There is a difference between cinephiles and gamers. Cinephiles want to preserve old black and white movies, and older movies with dated special effects, in their original form, seeing them as an art form. Gamers want to remake everything. Needless to say, I appreciate cinephiles more than gamers.
