11 Games That Deserve to Be Completely Remade, 'Final Fantasy VII'-Style

1 of 13

By now, I'm sure you've heard that we're getting the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake. Sony's reveal at their E3 2015 conference drew adulation, tears, and criticism from all corners of the gaming world. Final Fantasy VII Remake, whenever it drops, is sure to be one of the most lucrative titles Square Enix has ever shipped.

Unlike other re-releases, the Remake won't be a simple re-skinning of the original title. Instead, Square Enix announced they are rebuilding their 1997 bestseller from the ground up. It's a rarity, but the company has done it before; in 2006, Square remade Final Fantasy III for the North American handheld market.

Regardless of your feelings on the game, Final Fantasy VII Remake is destined to be a massive hit, and it's likely that its success will propel others in the industry to remake classic favorites in the same mode. Here are eleven great candidates for ground-up rebuilding.
