I have FFVII but I played it way late (I got it when it released on the PS4 back in 2015) and I liked it but I just couldn't fully get into it. However I played the demo at E3 and I loved it! The gameplay changes, the difficulty against Scoripon felt great and I am so in day 1!

I know what happens to you know who in the game because that's impossible not to be spoiled at this point but I am excited to play the game fully (or in parts I guess...)

Who else?

I played way late like you (a few years ago on Vita). I thought it held up surprisingly well, but part of it was definitely being able to play it on the go.

First Final Fantasy, first time playing FF7. I know the only big twist in the story but that's it!

I played a bit but never got far enough. Weirdly enough I finished Crisis Core several times and love that game to bits so I'm excited to go back to that world even if I know a few plot points.

I have played through the original multiple times and bought the game so many times. Lol. I will have to play the original once more before this comes out.

I didn’t play the game until the end of 2012. I absolutely loved it though. I actually played through it again, this time on switch, leading up to E3.

I’ll actually probably be studying in Japan when the Remake comes out. I won’t have my PS4 with me though so I’ll have to wait.

I played some of IV and really dig it, but never finished it. Have VII bought on Steam but never touched it. I plan to play it before the remake arrives.

It’ll technically be my 4th time buying the game (PS3, PS4, & PC). With each purchase I got further and further (furthest I got was the very beginning of the second continent) but always tapped out since it just got grating because of how dated the game is.

I have it a goal to finally play through the game this winter before next March. I own it on PS1 and PS3 digital.

I have it on PS1 and PC

Planning to get the original again on PS4 in the future

Will get the remake when it’s discounted or when it’s “complete”

It'll be my first time playing FF VII yes.
Although I have played 10,12 and 15.

I'm only going to pick it up once all the parts are out so I look forward to playing this in the year 2032.

One of my favourite games in the FF series, I played the hell out of the original PS1 version when it first came out, finished it 5 times.

FFVII was the first FF game I ever played and got me into the series.

Nah. I played through it once on PS3 back in... 2011? 2012? I'll probably replay the game on Switch or PS4 before the remake is out too.

Not my first time, played it on PS1, Vita, and Switch, with the Switch version being the only version I actually finished because of the built in cheats lol.
Remake will definitely be the first time I thoroughly enjoy it though.

TECHNICALLY, yes; but i'd still answer no/"first time playing" on the poll. I'd played it 3-4 times in my life time, but in short ass bursts from either my brothers save file as a kid, or again on his save files for the PSP(teen years). Both times I didn't care to jump in all the way, and both times i stopped playing at around the bombing run(don't even know if where I stopped would be considered the bombing run honestly). I do know a bit about the story, and i've seen a lot of the crazy moments as a kid, since i'd watch my older brother play, so i've experienced some of the games major offerings to a certain extent, but i've never really "played" FF7 so to speak. Incredibly excited for this remake though, literally took an old game I thought had a cool world, and turned it into an ARPG(one of, if not my favorite genre/sub-genre), so i'll definitely be there day 1 for this shindig.

It's going to feel like the first time. This is a completely new game and I couldn't be more excited.

Lol no, I was 15 when the original came out, bought it day one (right after school) and put hundreds of hours into it. Since then I’ve played it about once every year or two on various platforms.

Edit: I’m laughing now because I remember buying Wild Arms for the FF7 demo and how I played that demo for over a month and didn’t even touch Wild Arms...dozens of hours grinding and just messing with materia combos...

First timer here. Never had the chance to play FFVII when I was younger. I can't wait to play this game!

I’ve only played the side games like Crisis Core and the game with Vincent.

I played it on my vita for the first time back in 2017. I thought it still held up and is one of my fav games of all time.

I have played it (once when it released and another time on PS4) and I’m happy to have that background going into the remake. It will make familiar scenes “pop” that much more

Yep, it will be my first time playing FFVII. :) Excited to see what all the fuss is about. Unfortunately I roughly know what's going on in the story, but that was impossible to avoid until now, lol.
