The poll question was : Which Final Fantasy game should get the next HD upgrade? We had quite the response from this poll. 1075 total people participated, making this the most participated poll in our history. I suppose it is not all that surprising, given how many Final Fantasy fans are out there. Nor are the poll results particularly surprising. Final Fantasy VII won with 342 votes (32%). Coming in second was Final Fantasy IX with 222 votes (21%). Third was the “other” category which had 209 votes (19%), fourth was Final Fantasy XII with 158 votes (15%). Last was Final Fantasy VIII with 144 votes (13%).
So Final Fantasy VII won; who didn’t see that coming? Fans have been begging for a FFVII remake for ages, though I think at this point it is obvious it is never going to happen. Yet still, people seem to be hanging on to hope. Though to be fair, the poll question was which game SHOULD get the next HD upgrade, not which game WILL get the next HD upgrade. Meaning, a lot of votes probably came down to which Final Fantasy game is your favorite. I would guess that the only game on our poll with a realistic chance of seeing an HD upgrade would be Final Fantasy XII. Since Square Enix are making HD versions of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, it seems XII would be the next logical step.
I am happy to see Final Fantasy IX take second place, as it is my favorite Final Fantasy game. I am curious to know which Final Fantasy games people voted for in the “other” category. Let me know in the comments below!
