I tried emulating VII a few years ago before getting the Switch release and it had so many issues I couldn't get past the opening FMV, it would just freeze and loop the last few seconds of music. If PS1 emulation has improved and this is no longer a common problem... maybe. I do find that I'm way more likely to stick with a game if I own a legit copy instead of emulating, I don't know why that is though.


PS1 emulation has been solved for at least a decade now... Hell, PS2 emulation is practically perfect and PS3 emulation is already making great strides, I don't know where the idea of bad emulation comes from...
Also, you don't want to support SE, but also want a legit copy?

I you don't want to play with cheats... Don't?

I don't know what it was about the emulation, I was using a real PS1 disc and just wanted to play on PC for whatever reason, it was an issue with the opening FMV when it was transitioning from the zoom out of Midgar, to the shots of the train. I dunno what caused it, might have been the emulator itself and I was just too impatient to try another one or something.
What I meant about not wanting to support SE is that they're kinda scummy now between publishing Balan Wonderworld and calling a reimagining fanfic of FF7 a "remake" and advertising it as such just to sell more copies. My meaning of "a legit copy" just meant a used PS1 copy, since my money would be going to the local game store or ebay seller and not SE. I suppose saying that doesn't really mean much for this conversation though, if I'm looking for a fan patch. If the best way to play it really is the Steam release with mods, I wouldn't mind buying it if it meant I got to experience a better translation, fewer bugs [mostly with a few of the armor and spells and stuff not working] and the cloning stuff being put back in. Sorry, barometric pressure's got my brain fried this week.

We can at least agree that remaking their classic games as modern games is far preferable to having them summarized into episodic series and removing the game aspect of the property. Some of these stories are only so effective because the player has to pass milestones such as dungeon bosses in order to experience the next part of the story. Controlling and relating to the protagonist in a video game is much different to witnessing and relating to the protagonist of a film/series/etc.

But it's easy money. Something hardcore FF fans will eat up, and something that gives newcomers a chance to experience the classic story of a game that is probably older than they are and that they'll never play.

Agreed. I do wish that they updated and refine the sprite work in the Pixel Remasters. The Android ones look really awful.
