Who says a remake of Final Fantasy VII wouldn't be gigantic? Who says new gamers aren't interested in old-school RPGs?
Well, apparently, PSP owners are all about the old gems from great studios like Squaresoft. If you check out the latest episode of Pulse – now available to download on the PlayStation Network – they reveal the top 10 downloaded games for the PSP in 2010 thus far. And look what sits up at numbers one and two; Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII , two of the greatest RPGs in history and certainly two of the best overall games in history. Here's the top 10 list as we near the end of March:
Of course, you can play both of the top two games on either the PS3 or the PSP but the point is, enthusiasm for those old-fashioned titles clearly hasn't waned too much. Even Tetris , which currently sports a much-too-high $10 price tag, has been downloaded plenty. The reality of the situation is that people have not forgotten the greats from yesteryear so if Square-Enix thinks they wouldn't get a return on their admittedly big investment with a FFVII remake…well, I just point to when they asked about the idea at their Twitter page, and everyone went nuts .
