A recent survey issued by Goo Ranking listed the top sixteen games Japan wants to see remade on PlayStation 3. The people’s verdict? A list dominated by Square and Enix, with three Final Fantasy titles taking the top spots. Believe it or not, number one may not belong to the Final Fantasy you’d expect it to.

    you may be interested to know how the voting was done. voting process was to have people list the top games from ps you want remade. FFVIII got 100% (meaning it was listed by all those surveyed), FFVII got 99.97% or something. FFIX got 90 something too. and Xenogears around the 30-ish already.

    loooooooool pepsi man!! hahahahaahaha. what about mgs1 remake? or vigilante 8<3

  • TheronGuard00

    The Japanese got it right. Let me see that Legend of Dragoon remake AND successor. MMMMMMMM the entire list is great.

    OK, Final Fantasy VIII was good but it was NO Final Fantasy VII. Final Fantasy VII is the most logical choice for a remake.

    i love FFVIII due to the story, atmosphere and music, but the problems starts with the gameplay. if they made this game alot like FFX without the sphere grid system and with voice acting this would be better than VII period.

    though i want a Xenogears Remake or a sequel and Parasite Eve 4 for the PS3 :)

    OMG I LOVED Pepsi-man. That game was SOOOO fun! And YAY FF8 is the first. I have ALWAYS preferred Squall over Cloud and always loved the school theme in FF8. A remake would kick INSURMOUNTABLE amounts of ass.

    And Legend of Dragoon=YES! PLEASE!

    Most of the games on the list seem remake worthy to me. I would agree with the popular opinion of FFVII being number 1 (or 2 in this case), but I also love how games like Dino Crisis and Vagrant Story are on the list! They are some excellent classics of which I would buy a remake of in a heartbeat.

    Klonoa!!!! Yay!!!! My favourite platformer of all time (Mario can bite me >_>)

    I would be SO HAPPY if they did that. Also, Ace Combat 3&4, but I’ll live with Klonoa and Ghost in the Shell. :)
