LOL Final Fantasy VII had the most boring and brain dead easy battle system of all time. Good riddance to that shit. You are lying to yourself.

Wow you sit there picking “attack” from a menu over and over until you win. Truly you have a superior intellect and attention span. The dudebros could never comprehend such strategy.
cool story bro.

Enjoy your action button spamfest that is action games.

Ohh wowz, see that leet 500 hit combo I got while hovering in the air for 2 minutes.

such immersion, much realism

booo!

lean into turn based I say. Make it more cinematic as the actions play out, over the top with different angles and all that, but keep the thoughtful tactical gameplay that made the original so excellent. there are plenty of other action oriented SW games FFS

This sounds great. I have always wanted a Star Wars game with big open worlds you can explore. I haven't played the original much.

While it sure was a looker, I wasn't terribly impressed with the FFVII Remake and coasted through it on a wave of nostalgia.
I imagine this will be much the same.

Maybe I am crazy but kotor was real time with pause and not turn based right?

Also, the combat in kotor was the worst part of the game. Making it an action rpg but keeping everything else would be a massive improvement.
Yeah but usually those RTwP games has some type of pseudo-turn system, that's why most fans of this type of combat refuse to call it an ARPG while still being in real-time.

I don't mind it. To me it is just a really specific type of Action RPG combat, bc sure is not turn-based, but also is not a simple and direct ARPG combat.

How can it be a remake if it’s an action RPG? That makes it a completely different game.

And here we go.

This is why FFXV combat got screwed up, because the devs wanted to appease the whiny turn-based crew.

You already got your game (I.e. the originals), so frig off

First rule if you make a remake: don't change the fundamentals. Sadly, some devs believe in the opposite...
What's the point of remaking it then.

Seriously thought, a KotOR game with combat that is a conglomerate of Fallen Order/Jedi Outcast and Mass Effect for the shooter classes would be the ultimate ARPG to me.

It think the best they should claim is spiritual successor, and even that is a stretch. That said, I think it could be a fun game. They should have just said it was in the same time period using the same lore.

Turn-based RPG fans are the most fragile, whiny babies in gaming fandom. Any time an action RPG comes out they act like it’s a personal attack on them, and that it only got made because some imaginary gaming execs must believe that turn-based games are too old fashioned.

this despite the fact that there are still shitloads of turn based RPGs getting made, and they still get generous review scores.

"Whiny turn based crew"

Holy shit who shat in your breakfast boi? Turn based games is what made a lot of genres and games. Shit still plenty of games used turn based today.

Cant get over your ADHD and gotta press buttons fast? Plenty of other games for you out there.

You probably wouldnt like this game anyway, too much text to read.
