It has always been VI but square hates it for some reason. They wouldn't even do an FFIV style remake of it.

I'd stab faces for a high quality Final Fantasy VI remake. It doesn't have to be as high fidelity as Final Fantasy VII's remake. Even just a really well done Octopath Traveler style game would suffice. It's a crying shame that the GBA version was the last time Final Fantasy VI got a decent port or update. Maybe the best video game of all time, and at this point even Final Fantasy VIII (a game I love, but still not as much as VI) got a high quality (if flawed) remaster first.

Please not VI. The inevitable hyper anime style it would get redone in would take a lot away for me personally.

VIII, and after the remaster i really want that 8 gets a remake.
But im also okay with VI.
Actually i deserves it even more to get a remake. Just imagine Terra or Kefka and all those epic scenes, mosters ect. in HD

FFIX. I loved that setting. I crave a cute and gorgeous high fantasy single player FF.

VIII is the one that needs the most, if you think about how a remake would improve the combat and overall gameplay.

VI would be epic. Kinda want IX eventually as well.

I would actually rather get new FF worlds and stories more quickly, tbh. I would go for REMake style versions of 8 and 9 if they were so inclined, though.

VIII. It is so ripe with cinematic and action packed moments that a modern design would only elevate. Hell, it's probably more apt than VII if there wasn't a nostalgia/groundbreaking entry factor. But please VIII. I want a playable opening cinematic fight against Seifer.

Honestly i dont see it happening. The VII fandom was established at the perfect time with the Playstation fandom. Its huge following is why they are going all out to begin with.

The next best game would be VI, but by the time they are done with VII im not sure there will the desire for it still.

they still have FF7R part 2 and 3 before they start remaking other FFs lol (at least if we assume remakes on the same scale as 7R).

A lot of people haven't experienced FF6. That should be the next remake(if there is one).

If they're going to bother at all, 6 is the obvious choice. That said none of the other games are going to be considered enough of a "sure thing" for SE to fund such a thing.

Oh, how lovely. I voted for VI and it looks like I'm not the only one. Such an amazing game, not just an amazing Final Fantasy game. Every JRPG fan should play VI.

X should be relatively easy if they take a less ambitious approach and don't expand too far out from the base material. Something akin to the Shadow of the Colossus Remake, but for next gen.

Of the numbered Final Fantasy games, I'd want Final Fantasy VI. But if they were to go as detailed as the FFVII Remake, that would be a stupidly huge game.

However, I'd want Chrono Trigger to get the FFVII Remake treatment first. Only done in Akira Toriyama style, and extreme care put into making the game look 2D in 3D, not unlike the Arc Sys fighting games.

VI, but only if it keeps the style and design language of the original and is faithful to Amano's designs without Nomura ridiculousness added.

I don't think square will ever remake one of their games on the level of the VII remake, but I could see a VI remake with the scale of Trials of Mana.

I'm hoping none. I actually like the original versions of all my favourites in the series, and I think Square is better off making new games. If anything, I'd rather they make a new game like the old ones, instead of making the old ones into a new game.

I'm trying to imagine what an updated IX would even look like. Between the rat people, Brahne and Quina I feel like it would be nightmare fuel.

IX. That world would be absolutely stunning on a modern engine, and it still has the best cast after VII.

A remake for both V and VI is long overdue.
The latter is my favorite game in the series, I really want to see the cast, specially Celes in an updated look (like Dissidia NT) and not only in designs like the one from WoFF.
Celes and Terra are my favorite Final Fantasy women, they just have very good stories. Also Celes needs pants or something in a redesign. She looks like a sword wielding ballerina in her Amano artwork.

FF VII Remake treatment meaning turning it into a Nomura'd, westernized action RPG chopped into multiple parts? Stay far, far away from VI please.

I'd love love love to see an updated version of VIII since it's my favorite (and I think has the most missed opportunities), but VI would probably benefit best from it. There are a lot of obtuse mechanics and progression points in VI that end up completely unexplained (re-recruiting Relm, for instance, changes completely; the game barely hints that you should wait for Shadow; there are multiple points that rely solely on exploration instead of NPC clues on where to go), so getting VI with modern sensibilities would probably help it a lot.

VI is the best candidate. It would lend itself well toward a remake. It’s really the only other game of the series I’d say is deserving of the treatment. It’s not my favorite of the bunch, but it was forward thinking and remains engaging today. It would be great to see it reimagined for contemporary audiences.
