I feel like I'm being attacked here...In fact I'm pretty sure that's what's going on, and I don't think I deserve it.
I'm not "entitled" to anything. Of course I appreciate what we have. I don't think a version should be tailor-made just for me. But I do consider this the definitive version of FF4, and trying to debate what that word means is just silly. The bottom line is: what vivify93 has created is a better version of FF4 than anyone will ever make, including Square themselves. This is not comparable, in any shape or form, to a modification of a painting. It's more like a fanedit of a film. Which would you rather watch: an academy-award winning film, or a cut of the film that removes any and all unnecessary, badly-written scenes? I think most people would prefer the latter.
I think what vivify93 has done is not JUST a modification. It's a hack that creates the ultimate edition of a game. It's up there with Sonic 3 Complete, FF Restoration, Pokemon Crystal: Emu Edition and Metroid mOTHER as one of the greatest hacks ever made, for this reason. Something that perfects what's already there. And so if I suggest something be changed, it's not me saying "This sucks, change it". It's me saying "This hack is almost completely perfect, save for this one detail."
I just want to be able to play this and have a headcanon in my head that this is an officially released Square product. And having an FF4 title screen that's not FF4's title screen at all detracts from that, IMO. Again, I'm not making a huge deal of this. I'm not saying it ruins the hack, of course it doesn't. The actual game is excellent. I am not demanding what ANYONE do with their "art". It's a suggestion and a reason for the suggestion, nothing more. Calling me entitled for that is just not fair.
