1. Final Fantasy VIII (100%)

2. Final Fantasy VII (99.2%)

3. Final Fantasy IX (91.2%)

4. Xenogears (28%)

5. Valkyrie Profile (27.2%)

6. Parasite Eve (25.6%)

7. Ghost in the Shell (24.8%)

8. Bakusou Dekotora Densetsu: Art Truck Battle (19.2%)

9. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (15.2%)

10. Dino Crisis (9.6%)

It would appear the majority of Japanese gamers concur in thinking the Final Fantasy titles of the PlayStation era represent the heyday of the series.

Yet for reasons no sane person can know (perhaps involving towns), Square Enix has repeatedly scotched hopes of classic Final Fantasy remakes, apparently some of the most desired remakes the world over.

Possibly the ruination of the franchise in the Wada era will prompt them to finally reconsider, although considering the reception many of their latest games have faced, fans may have to prepare for the worst should they finally relent and go through with a remake.

I'd love to see a Dino Crisis reboot, as long as it doesn't go the way the sequels went.

Good to see the FF games high up there, though in the US all fans seem to really care about is FFVII, thanks in part to that PS3 tech demo.  I personally thought FFIX was better, though that one's often dismissed in this country for being too "cute".  A Xenogears remake would be cool.

It's funny how, in general, games have increasingly restricted the exploration of a player as worlds get better looking.  FFIX was the last game to let you walk around on a world map, unless you count walking through many zones in FFXII or the MMOs (not really the same thing).

Rendering a game like that in this age would probably be a nightmare.

I think they could do it if they designed it like the way WoW works.  Loading an entire continent at once, and letting the player freely explore it with flight (excluding spots with invisible walls).  Can't really do that if the world is split up into many smaller zones.  Though, using zones probably makes for a better looking game.  A lot of people may complain, but FFXIII is a beautiful game.

FF remakes could be inevitable, considering the reactions to recent releases.
